Sorry for hijacking the thread again but I didn't want Sam to think I was a total fatzord.

Ahh, fatzord. Least useful of all the megazords.

06 - 156 lbs / 71 kg
07 - 156 lbs / 71 kg
08 - 156 lbs / 71 kg

call scooby and the gang, i've got a mystery

i weigh 144 lbs right now, i know the previous 156 was after drinking the morning soylent meal, but what the heck happened? i admit i haven't ever weighed myself throughout the day, but even then, 12 lbs seems a little extreme to be a normal fluctuation.

right now, i'm going to drink the rest of my soylent, some water, and then reweigh myself.  will report back with the change.

update:
HAHA WHAT

i now weigh 157 lbs, good lord, 13lbs of soylent and water account for the loss

update:
nevermind. the scale had to have been off, but i left it recalibrate and repeatedly got 144 lbs, so i'm not sure what happened.  it seems the soylent only weighs like 3lbs

i need lots of new things


here's an update

weight 155 lbs / 70 kg

no more bowel problems after including a small bowl of oatmeal + orange in my diet, will from here on attempt just oatmeal, because oranges taste pretty good and i'm starting to enjoy this bland-tasting everything experience... the cardboard/cookiedough shake, mmm yummy

i discovered the best way to create my daily batch of soylent:

hot water into pitcher, then soylent powder and oil, shake for a minute, then add ice.  the clumps are almost nonexistant now.  i also pour with the pitcher barely open, to further strain clumps.  very smooth and at the same time thick.

i've had a sort of dull headache for the past 2 days.  it's not a headache, but it always feels weird starting at midday.  i'm hoping it's the decreased sodium in the soylent diet, so i'll be swallowing some salty water starting today.  going to start with half a teaspoon of tablesalt / 3g tablesalt (1000ish mg of sodium) for the next 2 days.

Wow this is way more interesting than I thought it'd be.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Wow this is way more interesting than I thought it'd be.

i have had a few worries here and there, and i always think i'm finally adjusted, when suddenly something new appears.

a few days back, and then yesterday, i've noticed correctly colored, but cloudy, urine.  to make it worse, yesterday it stung somewhat.  i have no disease which would normally cause this, so i'm hoping it was just some fluke soylent side-effect.

i stopped with the oatmeal, instead opting for some fruit thoughout the day.  the oatmeal was only worsening the soylent gas.  i plan on stopping the fruit and going 100% soylent after a while.  no bowel problems at all anymore.

i also started to make soylent with added table salt and less water.  i have been forced to spread the soylent out throughout the day, and i drink 3 meals now.  this was after i self-diagnosed rapid gastric emptying ... it was very weird, very uncomfortable, and very painful.  it was resolved with smaller meals.

i seem to be finally adjusted now.  i started exercising near the intensity of when i was in bootcamp, so i hope to not gain much weight and instead become fitter.  i feel pretty great... i'm really hoping others try soylent.  i might re-order before the end of the month if things continue as smooth as they are now.

Check in with your doctor just to be sure things are good before you continue this.

i might end up doing that eventually if it persists

i think the tremendous portions of soylent that i initially had might have contributed, maybe i had excess glucose in my urine as a result of the big meals or something?  and the bacteria just had a ball with that?  i have no other problems, pains, and it was only on 2 occasions, so i'm not actually worried.

edit:  okay, of course i'm worried, but not enough to visit the doctor just yet.
