I am going to try Soylent because of health reasons.
It seems that many here are interested in convenience and/or financial savings.
Well, I’m a Type 2 diabetic who is obese. I have high blood pressure and cholesterol. Years of bad eating habits have caught up to me and it’s clear to me that I’m just not good at making proper dietary choices. Weakness? Yes.
I believe it will be easier for me to remove these choices altogether and stick to a regimen of Soylent. My wife and I dine out from time to time but for the most part meals (i.e. breakfast, lunch at my desk at work) are a solitary affair and it would be just as easy to down a Soylent shake as opposed to rushing out to a fast food place.
I’ve used Glucerna shakes as substitutes for meals in the past and I have to say, these have generally satisfied my hunger. I am hoping that Soylent will be a better and less costly alternative to that.
Hopefully, more specific info will become available here and from Soylent on what diabetics can expect to see over a longer period of time. I’ll certainly report my experiences and numbers as time progresses. Obviously, every person is different with varying metabolisms but it will be interesting to see the general trends in blood sugar (A1C) reductions.
Anxiously awaiting my first shipment.
