I’ve been on a primarily Soylent diet for the past 3 months or so. I don’t blend anything with the given package mostly due to space and money limitations. The taste is okay, but I’ve noticed it still stops me from eating the full amount necessary each day. I have recently tried using a couple thick straws but it takes additional effort and the drink still comes in contact with the back of my tongue.
I’m looking to purchase something I thought was regularly available and relatively cheap: a long, thick plastic tube that has an attachment pump that does the sucking part for you. I’d love to just be able to dip the end in the Soylent, put the other side part-way down my throat, and then just flick a switch to then become full. Has anyone been able to find said device? or know of a method to build a DIY? I can only seem to find a tube that is rather expensive and connects to your stomach through your belly… not one that uses the method I mentioned.
Imo, if should be rather cheap to produce and could be bundled together with your first order of Soylent. From what I’ve noticed describing (trying to sell) Soylent to other people is that it’s simply having to taste it which completely turns them off from the idea despite it being the healthiest diet available. It’d most likely be easier and cheaper than developing flavor packs to mix in.
Does anyone else think it’s a good idea? it’d also be nice to put in a number of (legal) cognitive boosting drugs/nootropics as to not have to digest the many capsules on top of being able to avoid the even worse taste.
