    I tried soylent a couple years ago. I still have a few weeks worth in boxes laying around somewhere that I should probably toss. I thought it tasted good and it never gave me gastro issues. I understand the complaints about lying about the ingredients, but not taste or vomiting, gas, or diarrhea.

      So you don't recommend?

        if you are committed to replacing your food intake then I do recommend it. The problem for me was that I wasn't committed.

      The thought of eating, or I guess drinking only liquid as my daily meal intake makes me nauseous. I guess this isn't for everyone. Whats your take, judging by the fact that you still have a few boxes left I figure you're didn't get too into it either?

        Well,the thought does not make me nauseous but the truth be told, I only do a real liquid diet for a colonoscopy prep.

        Soylent is perhaps best known for lying about its ingredients and giving people fits of relentless vomiting and uncontrollable diarrhea.

        Lying about ingredients is bad enough,causing significant gi distress is a show stopper for me,except under Doctors orders (see above.)

          As far as I can tell, the relentless vomiting and uncontrollable diarrhea are all heresay. I think you can probably do a google search for "__________ causes vomiting/diarrhea" and get thousands of hits no matter what food product you fill the blank with.

        I never planned to make it my only food. I wanted to try doing Soylent as my primary food source when I am working remotely every summer. i would still buy fruits, veggies, nuts, and the occasional meal out. I liked the idea but in the end I like to cook at the end of my work day and I slowly just phased it out of my diet altogether.
