As part of Soylent's kickstarter, I ordered a week's supply to try it out. I'm too much of a fan of eating real food to ever consider exclusively using Soylent as my main food supply, but thought it would be fun to try and see how it makes me feel.
First off, the preparation is extremely simple, add the packet to the pitcher, mix with water and provided oil, and let sit in the fridge overnight.
The concoction is pretty thick, so gulping it down quickly was not an option for me. I can't argue the convenience of using Soylent, I got up, took 5 minutes to drink before my bikeride to work, pack a liter for work, and that was it.
I was pretty bloated the first day, so didn't consume the full day's amount which was really surprising, I thought I would not have nearly enough. Felt good, no energy crash all day.
The second day was a little better than the first. I wasn't keen on drinking a cold brown liquid first thing in the morning, but as soon as I downed a glass felt ready for the ride to work.
Felt less bloated all day, and therefore consumed more Soylent, consumed exactly a day's worth I would guess. Again, no energy crash, felt pretty good all day.
We're going to a party tonight, they're serving Pizza and I wonder how I will feel mingling with people eating food in front of me.
