There has been consistent feedback on Rob’s forum and elsewhere that Soylent is not as well formulated for women as for men. So, let’s figure it out! Women consumers of Soylent, what has worked for you? What hasn’t worked? Can you identify particular nutrient/ingredient tweaks that make a difference for you? Do you have particular worries that are specific to our health concerns?
I’ll start. My boyfriend and I are on Day 2 of slimming non-Soylent meals and substituting Soylent for food consumed during the work day. I plan on phasing out dinner eventually and I believe his plan is to nix breakfast. We both want to keep one meal a day. Breakfast so far is brown rice, spinach, egg(s), and a fig chutney; dinner was a simple burrito with greens, salsa, black beans, and pepper jack cheese. So far, I feel great. I was a little hungry nearing dinner and I didn’t feel a need to chow down, either from hunger or from enjoying solid food. Today, same so far. We’ll be sharing our spreadsheet soon. At this very early point, I’d say it works for me!
My question: the IUD hanging out with my uterus prevents me from having periods. Do I still need to fully integrate the recommended 18 mg of iron?
