Don’t get me wrong, I love food, but lately I have become afraid of it because everything I eat causes me pain. I spent the first few days figuring out how I want to flavor my soylent. I went through different peanut butter and chocolate combos until I decided to ditch the peanut butter, go for simple cocoa powder, and add sugar.
The difference in how I felt after soylent was immediately clear. It wasn’t perfect, but it was better. The pain I felt drinking it was very dull and almost unnoticeable. Because of this, I started drinking soylent almost exclusively without even setting out to.
When I notice the trend I got a little more serious about it. By the second day, the only pain I felt was when I applied pressure to the areas of my intestine that are affected by crohn’s. Coming from being in immense pain after every meal, I was ecstatic.
By day three or four, I was entirely pain free.** Now, this hardly constitutes a study and there are plenty of other variables that haven’t been isolated, but I’m going to call it a success so far. I upped my order of Soylent and it can’t arrive soon enough. I would definitely be interested in a study related to the effects of this kind of diet on crohn’s, but it probably won’t happen unless rosa labs funds something.
