I ordered my soylent during the original kickstarter and received it last August.
I probably spent about a solid week on pure soylent 1.0 before dropping off. I had about 2.5 boxes left that had been sitting for months untouched before I tossed them last week.
My motivation for starting soylent was to get healthier and lose weight. Also the ease of everything appealed to me.
The week I spent on soylent was fine, I didn’t really have any issues besides gas.
The second week I just started doing breakfast/lunch.
After that I just kind of quit making it.
To be honest soylent wasn’t much easier than normal food for me, also I missed the variety of food I regularly eat during that weeks time.
I ended up losing 50+ pounds without the help of soylent.
Getting up early in the morning and mixing up soylent or preparing it the night before seemed like a hassle. Also, managing all the containers was more than I was used to.
I found it easier to just eat raw fruits or vegetables whenever I need something to eat.
I also love cooking and would routinely choose doing that over mixing up some soylent.
I probably ended up spending much more money on groceries, etc. but that really wasn’t important to me.
Overall I don’t have anything particularly negative to say about soylent, it just didn’t really fit into my life like I thought it would. I’m curious if others had had this experience as well, but I doubt those who did would still be posting on the forums if they were no longer using soylent.
