Soylent: Day 2

P1000648As of this moment, I’ve had 5 Soylent meals in a row.

The only other things I’ve imbibed is some diet soda and coffee. Yes, I know diet soda is pure death, but they say coffee is good for you these days.

There have been a couple issues which concern me. This morning, I woke up with a headache. This is not uncommon for me, as I have issues with my sinuses. Also, my blood sugar was high this morning, but this could have been caused by the headache, blood sugar is tricky to nail down like that.

Overall, I feel like I’m at a too early to tell stage. I haven’t gone nuts from not having food. I haven’t died.

On the DIY side, I’ve decided to make a couple changes. First of all, I’ve decided to order a new scale, one accurate to 0.1 grams. I discovered that most kitchen scales are only accurate to 0.1 ounces, which is nearly 3 grams. This is not good enough for the micronutrients or for my Breaking Bad cosplay.┬áSecondly, I’ve started blending the mix longer, which makes it less gritty.

On the upside, I feel full. I don’t even feel run down like I have using other diet products.

    I have learned that one reason for waking up with a headache (or for having a headache for that matter) is dehydration. Drink a bunch of water, see if that helps. We’re supposed to drink 64 ounces a day, you know. Not that I do, but… Anyway, it might help with the blood sugar, too.

      I was just thinking about that. I find I’m drinking considerably more water, as I drink 20oz with each of my Soylent meals.
