I get heavy fatigue right after drinking Soylent and I want to figure out why…
My Soylent arrived 10 days ago. I started drinking it for about one meal a day, ~ 1/3 of my caloric intake. At first the effect was subtle but within 5 days I was fatigued (particularly right after drinking Soylent), had a sore throat, and felt like I was coming down with something.
I gave Soylent a break for a few days. When I resumed it Friday night I drank about 700 calories worth for dinner and immediately felt highly lethargic, slept an unusually high amount that night, and felt mildly fatigued throughout the next day.
One thing to note is that instead of the usual oil blend I add 2 tablespoons of MCT oil to one serving of Soylent. I tolerate such quantities of MCT just fine in general so unless it’s having some strange impact in combo with the Soylent, I doubt that’s the culprit.
