Soylent 2.0

I began slipping with my eating and didn’t want to continue seeing a decline, therefore I knew I needed change. I wanted a temporary solution for two weeks to reset my mindset to return to the healthy path that I’ve been on for the past year. When it came to convenience, I figured I’d give Soylent 2.0 a chance.

It’s definitely interesting, not really quite sure what to say about it. I couldn’t see myself replacing every meal moving forward with it, although I understand what they’re trying to do. The flavor is something that could use some work — I drink two protein shakes per day so I’m accustomed to random mixtures from different powders, nothing has been as bland as what Soylent offers though. I believe that was my largest hurdle.

I’ve done the body reset diet before, drinking shakes as meal replacements for a week straight is nothing new to me. The difference between the two, the regular shakes you make with greens, fruits, etc actually taste good. Soylent is a mixture of help with a side of struggle — after the first week you adapt, but it doesn’t mean you ever really like it.

It isn’t something I could see myself recommending, especially due to its high lead content; but if you need a solution similar to what I was looking for, it’s sufficient. It got the job done, not tastefully but I’m no longer eating like shit and I better appreciate the taste of healthy food after the horrendous taste of Soylent.

If you need something to help you back on track, give it a shot. If you need a meal replacement, I’d look elsewhere.
