After drinking Soylent 1.6 for a couple of weeks and my system adjusting to the differences (2-3 days), I’m at the point that I’m not going to continue with that particular recipe. Before I go too far, let’s just say this will be a bit of TMI, but important for those that are looking at Soylent drinks.
When I started, I was using Soylent 1.5 and the only issues I had was the gas being a quite rancid. When I changed to Soylent 1.6, it did stop having that issue. Over a matter of the first week everything was fine but after that, the digestion didn’t seem to bind the waste together very well. I added 4 teaspoon of psyllium husk per day to the mix which is 4 servings, and it only helped a minute amount. Since that’s an issue for me, I’m going to stop using Soylent at least for now. Since I’ve tried both 1.6 & 2.0, with both having the same effects, I’m okay with that choice.
I’ve received my shipment of Joylent drink today, straight from the Netherlands. A nice hefty 38 lbs! (17.2 kg) Excuse the mess surrounding the box.
I am surprised they just slapped all of the bags into a single box and shipped. It makes things so sloppy since there’s only a large box to hold them instead of 3-4 smaller boxes to compartmentalize the 30 bags. It’s how Soylent did things, and honestly it’s much easier to shelve and maintain.
This is the design on the bag of Joylent vegan vanilla.
I’ve taken the liberty of including all of the nutritional facts in one spreadsheet (Joylent Vanilla/Chocolate vs Soylent 1.6)
Some of the information is not available due to not being on the nutritional labels online or on the package.
I was going to cancel this shipment because I found a ketogenic drink available (has existed since Soylent has pretty much) named “Keto Chow”. I figured I’ll try this for a period of time, and wait for my shipment of Keto Chow to arrive and experiment with. Ultimately in a couple of weeks I’m hoping to settle into a ketogenic diet with Keto Chow.
Here is a picture of all three of the drinks I have currently, Joylent vegan chocolate, Vanilla, and Soylent 1.6.
I’ll post an update in a week or two of using Joylent about the progress and how it is through normal life. Until then, have a great life!
