It’s so odd to me that so many people have a knee-jerk negative reaction to Soylent based on its being in a liquid form.
Do people really not realize that all the chewing and swallowing we do, all that saliva we create, is designed to liquify our food so that we can better digest it? Soylent is likely about the easiest-to-digest thing one could ever come up with, and if your body is not having to expend extra energy to break down all that solid matter, doesn’t it stand to reason that you would have more energy leftover for other things?
That’s certainly what I’ve been finding anyway. More energy, a clearer head, and an all-around better mood and sense of well-being. Even if this were placebo effect, I’d pay to feel this good all the time. Hell I’ve been paying good money for my energy supplement regimen for over a decade and have never felt this good this consistently.
Anyway, the “people need solid food” argument just really doesn’t make any sense at all if you think about it for even a few seconds. It’s so odd to me that so many people seem to really put their foot down on that one.
