How I Stopped Eating Food

centralwetmarket_ray_laskowitz-1024x514

Food is the fossil fuel of human energy. It is an enormous market full of waste, regulation, and biased allocation with serious geo-political implications. And we’re deeply dependent on it. In some countries people are dying of obesity, others starvation. In my own life I resented the time, money, and effort the purchase, preparation, consumption, and clean-up of food was consuming. I am pretty young, generally in good health, and remain physically and mentally active. I don’t want to lose weight. I want to maintain it and spend less energy getting energy.

I hypothesized that the body doesn’t need food itself, merely the chemicals and elements it contains. So, I resolved to embark on an experiment. What if I consumed only the raw ingredients the body uses for energy? Would I be healthier or do we need all the other stuff that’s in traditional food? If it does work, what would it feel like to have a perfectly balanced diet? I just want to be in good health and spend as little time and money on food as possible.

I haven’t eaten a bite of food in 30 days, and it’s changed my life.

The Experiment

There are no meats, fruits, vegetables, or breads here. Besides olive oil for fatty acids and table salt for sodium and chloride nothing is recognizable as food. I researched every substance the body needs to survive, plus a few extras shown to be beneficial, and purchased all of them in nearly raw chemical form from a variety of sources. The section on the ingredients ended up being quite long so I’ll save that for a future post. The first morning my kitchen looked more like a chemistry lab than a cookery, but I eventually ended up with an thick, odorless, beige liquid. I call it ‘Soylent’. At the time I didn’t know if it was going to kill me or give me superpowers. I held my nose and tepidly lifted it to my mouth, expecting an awful taste.

2013-01-14-14.18.001-244x300

It was delicious! I felt like I’d just had the best breakfast of my life. It tasted like a sweet, succulent, hearty meal in a glass, which is what it is, I suppose. I immediately felt full, yet energized, and started my day. Several hours later I got hungry again. I quickly downed another glass and immediately felt relief. The next day I made another batch and felt even better. My energy level had skyrocketed at this point, I felt like a kid again. But on day 3 I noticed my heart was racing and my energy level was suddenly dropping. Hemoglobin! I think, my heart is having trouble getting enough oxygen to all my organs. I check my formula and realize iron is completely absent. I quickly purchase an iron supplement and add it to the mixture the next day. I have to be more careful not to leave anything out.

On day 4 I noticed how much healthier my skin was. It’s long been dry and rough, with splotches and red bumps but now it’s soft, smooth and clear. Before I rarely had enough energy to go to the gym, but this day I had plenty so I decided to put the diet to the test. I’d been running off and on for several months, never able to do more than a mile straight, but this day I ran 3.14 miles non-stop. This is an irrational improvement.

My cravings and tastes closely matched with my needs. One day I accidentally put in a tablespoon of salt, rather than a teaspoon. I immediately noticed the mixture tasted unpleasantly salty. When I was deficient of iron I felt a strong craving for red meat. As I started running longer distances I craved more carbohydrates. After a week advertisements for fast food looked repulsive. All I crave is Soylent.

Week 2 was rough since I started experimenting with the proportions, trying to find the optimum amount of everything. When I was off I paid for it dearly, but I soon found just the right mixture.

The rest of the month went smoothly. It quickly became part of my routine and I didn’t have to think or worry about it. I was fully expecting to crave traditional food, but I don’t as long as I’ve had my Soylent. Hunger comes from two chemicals triggered by a lack of nutrients, ghrelin and leptin, as well as mechano-sensors in the stomach. If there’s something in your stomach and all your nutritional needs are met you won’t feel hungry. I feel full after drinking a single glass of Soylent and while the smell of Mexican food from the street used to drive me crazy, now I am unaffected. It’s like finding a new partner you really care about. When all your needs are met, you don’t have a desire to stray.

Results

Quantitative

I had my blood tested in two ways: complete blood count and chemical panel, and got a lipid panel near the end. This shows stuff like red/white blood cell counts, Na, K, P proportions, and more. The internist had to bill it as “testing for blood-borne diseases”. She said a lot of providers do not support preventative care, which I thought was strange. I also monitored my heart rate, and bought a glucose meter to track my blood sugar (I’m not diabetic). I am 6’3″ so my BMI was on the upper end of normal at the start. Remember I am not trying to lose weight here.

Week 0 Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4
Weight (lbs) 204 196 192 188 191
Blood Work report (pdf) report (pdf)
Max run <1mi 3.5mi 5mi 6mi 7mi
Notes low blood sugar,
is this why I always
elt tired?
one belt loop down feel great two belt loops down,
blood work excellent
started getting chilly,
added a few pounds

I wasn’t able to get a lipid test until week 3 but my triglycerides and cholesterol are certainly low now. I have a family history of heart disease, but my risk is now well below average.

I also got my genome sequenced. Genetically, my body’s response to exercise should be typical, along with my response to diet, though on average I should have a slightly higher BMI, consistent with my status before the experiment. My LDL cholesterol is subject to be slightly higher than average, while my HDL levels typical. Though this is only one case, it should be representative of most people since my diet and exercise genetics are typical. Some people can eat all they want and never gain weight, others can’t shed pounds no matter how hard they try. The trick is in the genome, though both extremes are uncommon. 23andme is awesome!

Qualitative

I feel like the six million dollar man. My physique has noticeably improved, my skin is clearer, my teeth whiter, my hair thicker and my dandruff gone. My resting heart rate is lower, I haven’t felt the least bit sickly, rare for me this time of year. I’ve had a common skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris since birth. That was gone by day 9. I used to run less than a mile at the gym, now I can run 7. I have more energy than I know what to do with. On day 4 I caught myself balancing on the curb and jumping on and off the sidewalk when crossing the street like I used to do when I was a kid. People gave me strange looks but I just smiled back. Even my scars look better.

My mental performance is also higher. My inbox and to-do list quickly emptied. I ‘get’ new concepts in my reading faster than before and can read my textbooks twice as long without mental fatigue. I read a book on Number Theory in one sitting, a Differential Geometry book in a weekend, filling up a notebook in the process. Mathematical notation that used to look obtuse is now beautiful. My working memory is noticeably better. I can grasp larger software projects and longer and more complex scientific papers more effectively. My awareness is higher. I find music more enjoyable. I notice beauty and art around me that I never did before. The people around me seem sluggish. There are fewer ‘ums’ and pauses in my spoken sentences. My reflexes are improved. I walk faster, feel lighter on my feet, spend less time analyzing and performing basic tasks and rely on my phone less for navigation. I sleep better, wake up more refreshed and alert and never feel drowsy during the day. I still drink coffee occasionally, but I no longer need it, which is nice.

Time

I used to spend about 2 hours per day on food. Typically I would cook eggs for breakfast, eat out for lunch, and cook a quesadilla, pasta, or a burger for dinner. For every meal at home I would then have to clean and dry the dishes. This does not include trips to the grocery store. Now I spend about 5 minutes in the evening preparing for the next day, and every meal takes a few seconds. I love order of magnitude improvements, and I certainly don’t miss doing dishes. In fact I could get rid of the kitchen entirely, no fridge sucking down power, no constant cleaning or worrying about pests, and more living space. I just need a water source.

Money

Monthly I was spending about $220 on groceries, and another $250 eating out for lunch and the occasional dinner. The average american spends $604/month on food, about half of which is groceries.1,2 As a percentage of income this is actually the lowest of any nation. Kenyans for example spend 45% of their income on food.3 I used to dream of one day being able to afford shopping at Whole Foods, but now it’s irrelevant to me. Consuming only Soylent costs me about $50/month, another order of magnitude improvement, and would be cheaper if I didn’t need the energy for running every day. At scale the cost would be even lower.

Edit: this was a miscalculation from a mistake in my spreadsheet, at personal scale it actually costs me exactly $154.82/month.

The Quantified Diet

It’s wonderful to have full visibility and control over what’s going in to my body. Besides making food allergies irrelevant, it’s trivial to increase or reduce consumption of a particular substance by a precise amount. I am hopeful diabetics could use this to control their blood sugar. I was able to control mine to within about 5mg/dL by varying carbohydrates and fiber. Starting a more intense workout routine? Increase protein and carbohydrates 20%. Want to lose some weight? Reduce fat consumption by 30% (don’t eliminate it entirely!). Blood work shows potassium deficiency? Increase it by the precise amount required. In fact, unless you work on a banana plantation you’re probably not getting the recommended amount of potassium (3500mg is 9 bananas), and never have. Ever wonder what it would feel like if you did?

Social Implications

As any Instagram user knows, food is a big part of life. Food can be art, comfort, science, celebration, romance, or a reason to meet with friends. Most of the time it’s just a hassle, though. Americans only eat out for 12% of meals. I think it would be nice to have a default, healthy no hassle meal. Similar to drinking water most of the time, but wine or beer when you’re socializing. If you saved money on food at home you would have the freedom to go out more often.

I for one would not miss the stereotype of the housewife in the kitchen. Providing diverse, palatable, and nutritious meals for an entire family every day must be exhausting. What if taking a night off didn’t mean unhealthy pizza or expensive take out? How wasteful society has been with its women! The endless hours spent cooking and cleaning in the kitchen could be replaced with socializing, study, or creative endeavors. And why beg children to eat vegetables? Soylent has every vitamin and mineral the body needs, and it’s delicious.

To me diet always seemed to be a trade-off. Time, money, health: pick two. You certainly have the capability to be healthy, but it will cost you. What about the single mom, the poor student, struggling entrepreneur or artist, the unemployed, or the elderly? These people desperately need energy, and its harder for them to be healthy than anyone else. Living on fast food and ramen is cheap and convenient, but unhealthy. Shopping at places like Whole Foods costs a fortune to many people and cooking healthy recipes takes practice and time. Cooking should be a hobby, like hunting. People used to hunt for survival, now they just do it for fun.

Global Implications

With Soylent you can be in peak mental and physical condition for less than $2/day. Soylent does not spoil for months, does not require refrigeration, is easy to transport, cheap and environmentally friendly to produce, contains no pesticides, hormones, or preservatives, is trivial to prepare, without even requiring a heat source (though you do need clean water), does no harm to animals, and drastically lowers sanitation requirements. I almost forgot to mention, when everything going in to your body is diffused in to the bloodstream, you don’t poop. I only have to remove a few grams of fiber from my system per week. I also noticed I was generating far less trash than before. The vast majority of personal refuse is food-related. Why else would the trash can always be in the kitchen?

Discussion

This is one case and it’s only been a month, so it’s early, but I’m certainly not stopping now. Also, every body is different and there may be long term effects so more data is necessary. However, I am consuming no toxins or carcinogens and I get all the nutrition and energy I need with about 1/3 the calories the average American consumes so I hope in the long term my longevity will be improved (caloric restriction has been shown to reverse the effects of aging in rodents)4,5 while lowering my risk of cancer and disease. If you would like to try this experiment as well please contact me so we can pool our results. It’s fine to have a normal meal too, nutritional fundamentalists really irk me. The point is freedom, you don’t have to. I started consuming Soylent exclusively just to test the effects. I see nothing wrong with eating traditional food as well, I just don’t have much of a desire to. The only thing I missed was eating with friends. Now that 30 days are up I’m going to start doing that again. I only drink socially, and now I only eat socially.

I notice only now how much of this city is devoted to the stuff. Wherever you are I challenge you to find a search term for google maps that returns more results than “food”. Traveling back home to the American south I am still shocked to see how prevalent obesity is. How many people still spend their lives just surviving, living to eat, and it’s killing them? The food is eating us. I don’t know how to change peoples’ behavior, but now that I’ve discovered Soylent, I’m healthier than I’ve ever been, have more freedom with my time and money, and never have to worry about the stuff. Finally, I can have my cake and eat it too.

  • https://bitbucket.org/Alexanderkyte/ Alexander Kyte

    I would like to join you in this study. I am currently a college student. Could you provide me with a more in-depth analysis of the composition of Soylent? I'm a diabetic, and I've had success with a 'paleo' diet. I'd like to try this other extreme. Want more introspection into blood glucose levels?

    • Andrea

      Yes also Diabetic (Juvenile Tyle 1). This sounds great. Food can be such a curse for a Diabetic…where all those sweet sugary goods are so much more desired when you cannot or are "not allowed" to have them. Nice option for travelling too.

    • Taylor Johnson

      Hi! I'm also a college student and type1 diabetic, much like Andrea i've had difficulties staying away from the common sugar and carb filled diets. A sustainable and balanced option would be a miracle for me and many others. In addition to being a diabetic I am also a very active intercollegiate athlete, I was wondering if you had any ideas as to what the impact of heavy cardio oriented exercise would have on someone who is both diabetic and on a minimalist diet as you have described.

      • http://n/a Cormac

        Type 1 diabetic and chemistry PhD here. This sounds excellent, although surely it has been done before? I think the composition of Soylent willl have to change depending on local food consumption habits. Catering for specialised allergies (nut ,gluten etc) will make this product sell, as well as flavourings. Good luck!

        • Haley

          You don't have to cater to allergies because it's the nutrients in raw form, though. Right?

    • rebecca

      Hi Rob. Ever seen the film Soylet Green? the one where they turn people into miracle food?

      Also, you must admit that you went from a prettty shoddy diet typical of the developed world, from what you list as your daily pattern (eggs for breakfast, burger for lunch) to what is essentially a detox diet; on any healthy, temporary detox diet anyone will feel great and energised compared to their relatively poor regular diet. It is likely that you were not getting sufficient nutrients, and had too much processed food/refined carbs/sugar/fat/salt in your dient, and that switching to the whole foods that your ingredients came from would have had the same effect.

      How is your product more sustainable than regular food? surely the refined ingredients need to be sourced from actual food anyway? if so no consumption is reduced, and at the cost of unneccessary processing?

       

      • rebecca

        I meant the film Soylent Green!

        • joo

          I am fairly certain that's where he got his name inspiration from.

      • tim

        Its more sustainable in the sense that it will create a ripple effect. Powdered goods can be shipped compact and for more people, things like livestock farms will be a thing of the past because all the nutrition you can get from animals can be grown in the plants that are being processed to create raw nutrition. People will save money on food and spend it elsewhere thus helping the economy, peoples minds would be sharper and disieses would slow to a hault because peoples immune systems will be in top gear all the time. Its very beneficial In so many ways. And if you want to go back to the traditional way of eating then no one can stop you from growing your own food.

        • Bon

          That's not true have you heard of supply and demand. As soon as the demand for these vitians and plants increase the prices will go threw the roof so you $50/month will turn back into $600/month. In a perfect world if this worked so many people would be out of jobs and will have to give up their homes and land because soon the government will want to make plant factories and the clean healthy plants will have dirty chemicals in them because the government will poison it people will still think that they are loosing weight but in the long run this will ruin one to many lives just because everyone is so concered on how they look i no obesity is crazy in america but thats called lazyness and no motivation what makes you think that over weight people will loose that craving for a big mac or fremch fries. Theres so much out there for them to help them change their life style, they say they will change but they are to lazy and just want something easy and good. It to good to be true. But really happy that your happy you have made your life easier for you and healthier you should really be proud of that, I do agree though for diebetics and people who are have seveir allergies this will most deffently be very helpful. They don't have to drop eating normal good but this will most deffently make them feel fuller and energetic and for diebetics this might save lives if it works as well as you have said it does. People  don't shoot this discovery down till have tried it and have evedince that proves him wrong I haven't tried it and I'm courios to see if it works if not then hey we tried it and just when you do test it out maybe just let your doctor know have have regular check ups just in case make sure every thing is as at the right level.  

    • Brad

      My biggest concern is from looking at the ingredients.  I am a Naturopathic Doctor, and I can tell you that most of those ingredients are synthetic vitamins and most of the minerals were just "crushed rocks".  The minerals need to be organic from whole food sources, and the vitamins that are synthetic are just isolates and act like drugs.  They excite the receptors (and in most instances over excite), but do not act like vitamins in the body by providing "vitamin action".  Just as an example, Ascobic acid is commonly sold and used as vitamin C, but it is only the antioxidant protective coating of the vitamin C complex.  And, incidentally it is the only part of the C complex that the body will not accept or use.  It is like the egg shell around the egg, it is only the "package" that the C complex comes in.  Published in Rueters Health on 3 March, 2000, was an article showing that research on men taking just 500 mg of synthetic vitamin C (Ascorbic acid), daily for only 18 months caused an increase by 250% in the intimia media (inner lining) of the corotid artery.  This is how they measure for the progression of atherosclerosis.  Synthetic Vitamin C causes atheroscerosis. 

      I believe in the long term, and maybe even the short term he will have some very serious health issues as a result of this regimen.  He needs to switch to "Wholefood" vitamins and "Organic" minerals from plants that include the carbon and nitrogen molecules. 

      God made it perfect, man screwed it up!

      • Brad

        carbon and nitrogen atoms, not molecules…. sorry.

        • Helen T

          Brad, I'm with you on this.  Unfortunately there are the 'Quackwatch' style discounters here.  It's been PROVEN again and again you can't fake nutrition.  Let them go back to their GMOs and scratch their heads when they can't get pregnant.

          • Helen T

            Don't believe me?  Look up 

            http://www.salem-news.com/articles/february022012/gmo-babies.php

            Ask your *real* doctor if you need to get off GMOs – and see what HE tells you.  

          • Dr. Joke

            You cant "fake" molecules either. The molecules that can be made in a lab are the very same molecules a blade of grass (or nature) can make. The "fake nutrition" you speak of are diet scams that don't actually work. Physics is real and you can't have "fake" atoms or molecules.

      • Draken

        Let's wait until the REAL doctors see the evidence.

        Never dismiss something until fully tested. This could revolutionize and eliminate many problems with the agro industry.

         

        It has the same type of atoms as food; so it didn't change a thing that the Flying Spaghetti Monster created. 

        • Carol

          That was obnoxious, Draken. 

          • Max

            Not really, you're being over sensative. Apeals to mysticism should be questioned. We need answeres not mind games.

        • Johnny

          Sometimes people come off so condescending I lose my faith in humanity.

          • Noel

            And the post didn't deserve it?

            First Brad states that he is a "Naturopathic Doctor". This is a meaningless term (not legally protected, I can say my dog is a naturopathic doctor and nobody can really refute it). Brad is attempting to make a fallacious Arguement from Authority to try to lend the authority of his "qualifications" to the utter nonsense he's about to write.

            The Arguement from Authority is fallacious because Brad fails at the first requirement. i.e. that he must be a legitimate expert on the subject matter.

            He then procedes to display his astounding lack of elementary chemistry and biology knowledge, talking gobbledegook about overexciting vitamin receptors, talking about health journalism from reuters as if it was the actual research paper (which I can almost guarantee you he hasn't read and I'd place a second bet that he lacks the education to understand it).

            Then he makes some kind of religious appeal to authority.

            And reasonable people are supposed to let his comment go unchallenged?

        • MM

          That arrogance is ironic, common sense informs one that a living being needs to consume living foods for health. There is more to food than basic nutrients, there are thousands of unknown phyto nutrients that produce human health. Interestingly, you appear to be too full of naive conditioned assumptions to note as much.

      • Brendan

        > I am a Naturopathic Doctor

        Naturopaths are not doctors.

        • Jin

          Naturopaths are doctors. Acupuncturists, herbalists, are doctors. We treat diseases doctors can't. They fuck up people's health, all the time. 

          • Vicki

            That's because they aren't running a scam and the things they actually do affect the patient. If chi was a real thing messing around with it could kill the patient. It isn't, so it can't.

            If it was real, we'd be discovering new things about it. We'd be learning more about how it works. Physicists would be trying to make it.

            The ancient people that actually believed in acupunture believed it was what made people alive. They believed that people needed to breath air in to extract chi. That chi was processed in the spleen. Their understanding was that if you lost your spleen, you'd die. Many people today live perfectly healthy lives without their spleens, and presumably, without chi. Nobody is doing studies to figure out why.

            If some guy had his heart removed and he didn't die but kept on living for even a few days it would be a headline in every major newspaper around the world. Medical science wouldn't just ignore it.

          • m

            No you aren't. You can be involved in healing but doctor actually means something.

          • K

            And Doctors perform life saving procedures and surgeries that you wouldn't even know where to begin, spend years in school so while during those surgeries they, unlike you, will know not to cut any important nerves, kill you, or cause you to bleed to death.

             

            Get real.

            Jin -You are correct!! I got muscle atrophy and lost my sense of smell from taking Lipator, the doctors give it to everyone and never tell anyone to take fish oil that lowers chorestorol. I thought about Brad's idea 2 years ago when I got sick and tired of cooking all the time,anything that is good you have to prepare it-may it be cooked or raw eating. So Brad- make some little changes on the formula and make it available to all of us.

          And Reuters Health News isn't the kind of medical journal a Doctor would consult. If there's a vitamin C complex, no-one ever told all the animals that synthesize pure ascorbic acid and ignore the rest of the "complex", i.e., most of them.

        You Sir, are not a doctor, nor are you a medical professional. You can give yourself any title you wish thats not legally restricted, but it still dosn't mean your uninformed personal opinions magically become factual.

            No, but he used his "title" to sound like he was more of an expert than you, me or even the guy doing the experiment who even includes actual results. He even goes on to attribute a deity, adding to his lack of judgment.

            "There are more doctors under heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy…" Heck, I'm a doctor. It's physics, not medicine, but it still gives me data about expertise. To become a proper doctor of anything takes study and concentration. Directed, tested study and concentration. I want to see the curriculum the naturopath dealt with. Otherwise, it's an argument not from authority, but from assumed authority.

        • Sheena

        Nevre listen to a naturopath! This guy has no idea what he is talking about. A chemical is a chemical. A sodium ion is a sodium ion no matter where it is derived from, earth or plant source (where do yu think the plant got it geniius??) There also is no difference chemically or nutritively between "natural" or synthetic molecules.

        Ever see those people that carry dogs in purses? They're cute, adorable, and friendly. Some people worry about having such small dogs around children because the children might hurt them.

        Mother nature didn't make those dogs, we did. before they were domesticated, they were wolves. They would literally jump out of the darkness and tear your child to bits the moment you left the poor tyke unattended. The same artificial selection process that created dogs happened to other animals. Cows and pigs and chickens were bred the same way. Here's the thing most people don't realize.

        The same force that turned wolves into purse dogs has been acting on nearly every single plant that humans consume. They didn't always sit in tidy little rows waiting for us to eat them. They didn't always give up their nutrients so easily. In many cases the effort required to eat fruit cost more calories than the fruit provided, and it was only through the clever use of tools that some fruit became edible.

        Plants are not as passive as people think, and they are no slouches when it comes to murder. They poison, they cut, they even trap and "eat" insects. Durians will literally drop down out of the trees and bash your head in with their spikes. They kill more people than sharks.

        The only reason that you see nature as benevolent is because you look at the artificial foods engineered by agriculture and think they're somehow "natural". Human beings act in their own best interest, so the more artificial it it, the better.

        "Better" can sometimes be a problem. Sometimes a food is better at staying fresh longer at the expense of it's healthfulness. Sometimes a food is better because a sacrifice in quality has made it cheaper. Organic isn't about health, it's not about the environment, it's about reducing the amount of technology involved. Sometimes that means sacrificing shelf life for a more nutritious product – that's good! Sometimes it means less negative environmental impact – that's good too! But sometimes it means using a lot of an old pesticide instead of a small amount of a newer one that isn't carcinogenic. That's bad! Thinking in terms of how "Organic" things are isn't very useful and leads to a lot of very arbitrary decisions based on the absurd assumption that nature is some sort of magic, benevolent force.

        Synthetic vitamins and real vitamins contain the exact same vitamers, which are the functional molecules. That's why, to use your example, ascorbic acid (which is naturally occurring, produced in many animals, but whatver) has been shown to have vitamin action.

        Source: THAT'S THE DEFINITION OF VITAMIN.

         

        This suggests you really don't understand what you're talking about. Since that article you "cite" doesn't exist and has no record of its existence anywhere and you don't seem to grasp how digestion works at all (hint – minerals bonded to nitrogen and carbon are unbonded before the body processes them, even if such things occurred) I'm going to go ahead and call you a liar.

        Quack! Quack! Quack!

      • Ryan

        Brad,

        What you are saying is just fundamentally wrong.

        1) Minerals are by their very nature not "organic" as you say.  Organic means containing carbon along with hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen. etc.  Minerals are various metals primarily in their element form, i.e. iron, magnesium, selenium, etc.  These are by their nature "inorganic".  You study these in general chemistry, which is essentially inorganic chemistry.

        2) Vitamins do not excite receptors.  Vitamins like many of the minerals stated above act as cofactors for various enzymes.  Iron (a mineral) for example is a component of the hemoglobin protein structure and is required for binding of oxygen.  Vitamin C which you go on to wildly misexplain is a cofactor for various enzymes, primarily hydroxylases (enzymes that transfer hydroxyl groups) involved in collagen biosynthesis.

        3) Vitamin C is not a complex.  Vitamin C refers to the class of vitamers that are ascorbic acid and its various salts.  L-ascorbic acid (the active isomer) can be interconverted between the various salt forms in the human body.  Your body is more than willing to accept and use L-ascorbic acid.

        4) Your Reuters Health study, which is completely contradictory to many more studies suggesting a positive benefit of Vitamin C on cardiovascular health was never subjected to peer review.  It was a report from an American Heart Association meeting and as far as I can tell this was never actually published and thus subject to the stringent review of much better studies.  Additionally, vitamin C is extremely water soluble.  Elevated dietary intake will not really contribute to significant elevations in plasma levels as the excess will be flushed out in your urine.  

        You are out of your area of expertise.  Stop acting like an expert when you do not even have a basic knowlege of chemistry, biology and biochemistry.  Read some books and try again.

        • Michael

          Seriously, thank you. My thoughts exactly. I was skeptical when I read "naturopathic doctor". When I read "organic minerals" I was 100% positive Brad has no fucking idea what he's talking about. This is basic chemistry here. You need only a high school-level understanding of chemistry to understand why there's no such thing as an "inorganic mineral". All minerals are "organic" by definition of being a mineral! It's the default, and only, quality a mineral can possess! An iron atom is the same whether it comes from a steak, your blood, a rock, or a pile of rust. The same goes for potassium, sodium, zinc… every mineral on the periodic table that our bodies require. How someone can be so off-base on something like this is mind blowing. This is pretty embarrassing, "Dr. Brad". Delete the comment and go grab yourself a science book.

          • gomz

            Michael, just want to quickly correct you. Yeah, it's obvious this Brad character may have unknowingly stepped off a cliff on this one, but minerals are inorganic. The definition of organic, as in "an organic molecule" or "organic chemistry," is a carbon-containing species. Glucose,  C6H12O6, is organic, but calcium hydroxylapitite, Ca5(PO4)3(OH), is the inorganic molecule that, in its crystalized form is the mineral that makes up a significant portion of your bones. The common misconception is that "organic" means "pure" or something along the lines of "straight from the earth." 

      • NC

        I am sorry, but for the benefit of anyone reading this who isn't an expert, this man vastly, vastly misunderstands chemistry. There is nothing wrong with not being an expert in chemistry. Until you start trying to talk about and sell it. 

      • Elsie

        You are a quack. Minerals are by definition inorganic. There is not, and cannot be, such a thing as an organic mineral. Also, you misspelled "carotid" and "intima media." 

        Also, gibberish about vitamin absorption. You fail at chemistry. And biology.

      • B Branham

        Oh good grie! Of course minerals are basically crushed rocks although that is oversimplification!  I didn't even major in science in high school & college and I know that. I was cautiously willing to overlook your claim to some sort of expertise with your declaration that you are a "Naturopathic Doctor" but you followed that statement with utter nonsense. The only reason naturopaths attract any patients at all, other than by bamboozling the ignorant, is that you spend time talking with your patients which regular doctors rarely have the luxury of being able to do. Basically cheap psychiatry. Works great for those complaints that originate mainly in the patient's head.

        I don't know a lot about many things, but I think you've summed it up, Brad. God made it perfect, and man has screwed it up! I've found that by eliminating processed foods and sugar from my diet, my health has improved exponentially. Going back to basics…the gifts as God made them….has resulted in a healthier – and lighter – me!

        • Emma

          Didnt God apparently make the sugar cane too thought by your reasoning.. therefore making that perfect and healthy.. hmmmm. All this talk about God creating perfection really bugs me. The sheer amount of natural (and man assisted) evolution takes us a long way from anything that previously existed in the beginning. Man has messed a lot of things up, I'm not denying that. But nature has too just look at the Dodo. Nature (or God as some people like to call it) is NOT perfect. It makes mistakes and learns from them. Who's to say that using our natural intelligence we can't create a healtier alternative. we were never designed to eat so much processed food and we took it to the extreme. maybe going right back to basics (the bare essentials) is exactly what a lot of us need. its certainly worth looking into and thinking seriously about rather than dismissing. Imagine the absurdity of a fried mars bar to our ancestors.. this may be the next step

      What I found is that the body needs the following vitamins and minerals which are probably in Soylent: Calcium, Choline, Chromium, Copper, Flouride, Folic Acid, Iodine, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Phosphorus, Potassium, Selenium, Sodium, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitami B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B7, Vitamin B12, Vitamin c, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, and Zinc as well as Fiber in which case I would eat some Weat product and Fat in which case I would eat Cashews and/or some other unprocessed food that contains some fat… and there are a few different fats if i recall so make sure you obtain all of them and you'll probably feel better than ever…. by the way idk the amount of each you should obtain but thats just easy "googling". Good luck if you try it though

    • Raven

      Agreed, This could help end world hunger. If people didn't HAVE to eat and could CHOOSE this option instead. I have been dealing with weight issues all my life, even more, after my three children were born. I've often lamented having to go in the kitchen and cook. Not because I can't, but because not everyone is willing to eat the same diet as the next. The cycle keeps repeating. I would easily take the torch, sort of speak, and transition to this if I could. 

      • http://abcnews.go.com/Health/feast-famine-controversial-fast-diet-weight-loss-plan/story?id=18613821 KL

        Raven, I'd recommend you check out the Feast or Famine diet. It's a program of intermittent fasting where you limit your daily caloric intake to 500 calories just 2x a week. The other 5 days, you are free to eat whatever you want. I'm in my 4th month of doing it and I feel great. The first few days of calorie restriction are difficult but also the most rewarding – I lost 8 kilos during the first two weeks. Now my weight has more or less stabilized, which I suspect has something to do with displacing fat with muscle, since I hit the gym twice a week as well and muscle is heavier than fat. My skin is clearer and I have less visceral fat, and best of all my face and neck have slimmed down, which has done wonders for my self-esteem. The great thing is that it's easier to make it through a day of eating very little knowing that you can eat chocolate the next day if you want to. And socially, it doesn't mess you up too much. Just have a light meal during the day and skip dinner, and voila! You've made it through the day. I usually have an orange or banana for breakfast, followed with a salad of unlimited veggies (cucumber slices, carrots, radishes, arugula), a cup of cous cous and a hard-boiled egg. And of course you're limited to black coffee, tea or water for your drinks. But it's only twice a week, so it's definitely doable!

        World hunger is NOT about lack of food – the world has plenty. It's about getting the food to areas in which bandits, armies, rebels, violent criminals, corrupt and downright evil governments etc rule. 

        And stuff like this already does exist – it's called Ensure and is commonly used to re feed anorexics

    • Alex

      A commercial product could be the end of it all for most people. It would be expensive and once it becomes popular enough we'd really be screwed. It'd become way harder for the average person get ahold of the ingredients on their own. The food industry (like all industries) can be a dark place my friend.  

      • rob

        I am optimistic. No one has or realistically can have a monopoly on plain essential nutrients. Engineering has shown me how standardization dramatically drives down cost. It is amazing to me how cheap a wi-fi radio is for all the complexity. True it is non-trivial to acquire the ingredients and make it on your own, but I think this has the potential to dramatically drive down the cost of being healthy at scale.

      • Anthony

        Alex:

        This is borderline conspiracy theory. If a company was massively overcharging, there'd be economic incentive to compete by producing a cheaper product. Further, these are basic nutrients. Are you claiming that the nutrients we be (almost) impossible to obtain if an "application" becomes popular? This is complete nonsense. Its equivalent to saying, its impossible to get raw tomatos because of ketchup manufacturers. Sure consumers can buy them as cheaply (read: *scale*), but this doesn't imply economic or legal infeasibility! 

        The only hurdles to cost and availability have to do with raw resources, manufacturing, and distribution at scale. The only hurdles I see are the raw vitamin/mineral availability (because I haven't researched this) and potential FDA issues (which don't seem problematic at first glance, but you never know)

        Saying "the food industry can be a dark place" is not fair.

        • Todd

          The real issue would surface when big pharma get's invovled to protect us from potential overdoses or problems with raw ingrediants… vitamins don't replace an entire industry and lobbiests are working hard to regulate that… but this has the potential to put some of the biggest companies in the world out of business… in a best case scenario at least.  I can very realistically see the FDA requiring a prescription to purchase the raw ingrediants, or go ahead and pay 10-50x this amount for premade approved stuff.

          • http://facebook.com/yakk0 Michael

            This is not a trivial concern, this is very real, I suggest you refrain from too much exposure or from trying to market it and keep it a cool online "did you know" type thing.  Once this information becomes widespread enough to cause damage to any of these companies, the only way they'll be able to stop people from trying it is through misinformation and claiming it's dangerous, which by then, anyone who's tried it will easily know is BS.  They will come for you if you get too big, so be careful.

      Whatever the other obvious issues with this diet (lack of bulk, for example), a commercial product would be useless because it would not target individuals. We all know that different people have different dietary requirements (if they didn't, there would be no need for dieticians).

      • KB

        Interesting concept just wondering what forms of the other products you are using. Many supplement companies sell poorly absorbable forms or forms that need to be furthur processed in the body to become active. For example a popular form of B12 is cyanocobalamin or hydroxycobalamin however, many people have 1-2 mutations of the MTHFR gene that inhibits the methylation of these products and patients do much better being given the already methylated form. This can be true of folic acid as well. A few other things to consider, Vitamin D should be D3, Vitamin K should be K2, trace minerals are a must but you can also add trace minerals to water to sip on throughout the day. If you're using botanicals you can consider aqueous extractions of herbs such as avena sativa (oatstraw) or Equisetum arvense for the mineral content. Just some thoughts.

    • Peej

      Potassium in its metal form is very different from potassium ion in a salt or in a solution.

      • MikeLM

        Ummm…yws. It's a lot like sodium. As a kid I dropped a one-pound block of pure sodium (you could get it by mail back then, it was a cube about 1-1/4" on a side) into a bucket of water, and ran like hell. We were rewarded with a loud "WHOOMP" and a ten-foot column of orange fire.  Both metals must be stored submerged in kerosene so they don't oxidize violently.  So, don't try to get your mineral fix by biting into a hunk of potassium.

        As for Methyl-Cobalamin for Vitamin B12, it's available from a company named Life Extension, which offers a wide range of nutritional materials.  I have no connection whatever with the company, but believe it would be of interest to many of the nutrition-geeks on this thread.

        Interesting and fun discussion here.

        • Mystgreen

          Metallic sodium is VERY light. (Less than the weight of water)

          Let's see, 1.25 inches = 3.175 cm

          3.175 cm x 3.175 cm x 3.175 cm = 32.00598 cu cm in a 1.25 inch cube (32 will work for this)

          Density of metallic sodium is 0.968 gm per cu cm.

          32 cu cm x 0.968 gm/cu cm = 30.976 gm

          30.976 gm = 1.09 oz

          So… you used a 1 oz block of sodium.  Still pretty spectacular though.  Been there, done that.  (The idea of doing that with a 1 pound block of sodium flashed in my mind's eye like some kind of military incendiary grenade.)

    Can you add food colouring? Soylent Red, Yellow and Green?

    I'd be interested if you had seriously pulled this off, but I find myself sceptical of the possibility. Surely human nutritional requirements are complex and require a huge variety of trace elements that can only come from eating complex oodstuffs?

        This actually concerns me. Your gut flora are extremely beneficial, and I wonder if you're doing enough to feed them and keep them alive and healthy.

        • Morraine

          Exercise is essential for the intestines and bowel – and unless the drink has enzymes, probiotics, AND far more bulk, the intestines would become atrophied – I am very confused about that part – and the fact that many can't take Vitamin D at all!

          I can imagine this concern, but if you look at the sustainability of this diet: I am one who doesn't necessarily enjoy eating or food in general except from a good meal from time to time (once a week?). If I were to implement this diet, which I'm contemplating once I get hold of the formula, I'd probably still eat meals from time to time, feeding the flora and exercising the smooth muscules. I agree on talking to a gasteroenterologist, even if simply for confirmation/security instead of speculating to the outcome. However I do think, as a base diet, this certainly has potential. Rob already mentioned the social implications of going out for a meal with friends (and by extension probably family, collegues etc), which might ease some of your concerns further. – CFB

      • Sam

        That's telling – regular bowel movements of the correct consistency are crucial for good bowel health and infrequent defecation and long transit times are key risk factors in bowel cancers. 

        • http://www.orangedragontravels.com denny

          But isn't that only important in the sense that they have to maintain that good health to deal with the things we shove into them in general from our food choices?  Is the bowel system, aside from the small intestine which gets nutrients into the blood stream (if I remember 9th grade health class correctly), essentially only there to remove the bad bits?  If you then eliminate the bad bits… haven't you eliminated the need to maintain them for doing so?

            Denny, you are essentially right. However, you must realize that the bacteria are already there, and if not fed are very likely to migrate into the body tissue. As for the bowels: they need exercise or they will experience atrophy, muscule shrinking/death. You'll still need the whole package (intestinal lining, smooth muscule, bacteria, internal sphincters etc.) for proper absorbtion. Only IV nutrition might be able to eliminate the need for the intestines. On a final note: our body produces and uses liters of enzymes every day and most of the fluids are resorbed in the large intestine so we'll still need that, too.

        Well then that's the end of the German shiza movie industry.

        • Vicki

          Are you kidding? This would make life a lot easier for those people. Being able to fast safely and being able to eat on a specific schedule (instead of whenever you are hungry) would be very helpful for people that need to schedule and coordinate their bowel movements.

      • Emma

        I dont claim to be highly educated in these matters but even my dog needs extra fibre to create harder stools and clear out her anal glands.. surely by radically reducing the amount and substance of defecation this can have adverse effects on some of the other natural processes such as bile production, stomach acid levels and the effect this has on the stomach lining etc. it would be interesting to hear about the effects on those. xx

  • Mind porridge

    General question about the framing of this: I don't know anything about the history of nutrition and am wondering how we have come up with the list on Wikipedia? Presumably nutrition is as subject to revision and new discoveries as any other aspect of biological science. Is it not therefore possible that not all the stuff we need in food (or perhaps more particularly, the combinations we need it in) has been identified yet?

  • http://combocombat.com Manuel Araoz

    I am no nutrition expert (in fact I am surprised by how little I know about nutrition), but couldn't eating only Soylent totally wipe out your gut flora? (some bacteria will no longer be needed and die)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gut_flora

    • Daniel

      I just asked him the exact same question.

    • Alex Andersson

      You could always find a rich source of lactobacillus acidophilus and add that to the Soylent. Even keeping a separate supply of Yakult or something similar in the fridge would be a good way of keeping the level of gut flora at a nominal level.

    • Alex

      I would think that their presence would only be relevant if you were to return to eating regular foods, as their main funciton is the digestion and decomposition of whatever mass is resting in your intestines.  So, while you would only be able to sustain a very minute population of them (since you're eating so little), you would be able to sustain them on the basis that you are in fact eating a minute amount of food.  Even if they were hypothetically wiped out by your lack of consuption, you wouldn't need them anyhow because of said lack. 

      Beyond that, if you were to return to eating 'regular' foods, you would be able to repopulate your gut flora because it is through food that the bacteria find their way to your tummy.  You aren't born with them, after all. 

      To be fair, I also know nothing about nutrition or biology, but that all seems logical.

      • Paul N

        Alex, 

        This may seem logical, but that doesn't make it correct.

        We are only now beginning to know how much we don't know about our gut flora and why its important.

         

        While aiding infood digestion is arguably the main function, gut flora also playa  role in our immune system, and likelya  few other things too.  Many people have cured themselves of certain diseases – mainly auto-immune type, like Crohns, by chaning their gut flora (anf often their diet too).  people are also doing helminthic therapy (google it) – infecting themselves with hookworms and whipworm, which actually stimulate our immune system.

        So, viewing our body as a vast (bio)chemical reactor is, technically, correct.  But that doesn't mean that we should feed it purified chemicals.  Certain vitamins, like B12, need certain adjuncts (intrinsic factor) to be absorbed, miss these and you miss the nutrient.   There is lots we don't know about nutrition, and quite likely some "essential" nutrients that we have not yet identified.

        And some deficiencies take a  long time, or even a generation, to show up – the famous example being Pottenger's Cats.

        The success of many people in curing infections like C. diffilcile using fecal transplants shows what gut flora can do – we will have to wait and see how he does without them.

         

        • Erin

          Great comment, thanks!

    • Julia

      The gut bacteria would not "know" or discern the difference between traditional food and Soylent… after all it has the same chemical composition. The only affect would may be due to the absence of roughage or bulk. Rob has said in the comments that he has added fibre to the mix, but Soylent is still liquid, and does not have roughage or bulk… food fibres… so this affects the mechanics of how the food travels through the digestive tract, which could affect bacteria that normally grow on the food bolus rather than on the gut wall. 
      The lack of roughage in Soylent is of concern as well from a general gut health point of view, and could affect colon cancer risk. 

      • Lydia

        From what I understand, the colon cancer risk is due to the length of time that rubbish (undigested food, aka toxic waste products) sits in your colon for, and the roughage helps protect against this because it speeds up the passage of material through the bowel so that waste is excreted in a timely manner. If only essential vitamins and minerals are being consumed then there are no toxic waste products that you need to flush out of the system ASAP, and thus no risk of colon cancer.

        • Sam

          The body is constantly producing toxic byproducts itself through metabolic pathways. What you eat isn't the only source of wastes.

        • Peej

          What's "toxic" about undigested food?

    • rob

      For what it's worth, I take a probiotic now.

      • http://www.findamortgageonline.co.uk Dave

        In the long run I don't see how it would be all that much of a concern anyhow.

        You can buy probiotics in supplement form can you not? I guess long term other essentials could be added. carbs, proteins and fats could be added to the mixture in small amounts. Phytonutrients etc. could be added in the form of a small amount of powdered greens?

        Scientific testing will, hopefully, help to identify these things.

        Perhaps you should go back to just eating regular foods for a week or two after a while and see how you cope switching back to normal foods. The same kind of cognitive and blood tests can be used to see how things change.

  • Myles

    This is very interesting. Where can I get more information about this and is there a forum were everyone can collaborate?

    I just want to try it. when U will post some guide, what and how to prepare?

    Have you noticed your tongue becoming smooth? I've heard people who go for long periods with no solid food start to get a smoother tongue.

    If you go back to regular food anytime soon I'd be interested in hearing about how ou find the taste of it.

    • Peej

      Vitamin B12 deficiency.  You also get anemia.  It's not good to miss essential nutrients – that's why they are called essential.  Take a multivitamin, or just eat a balanced diet.

  • David

    Very interesting article! I'd be interested in trying this myself. I do juice fasts from time to time and am curious to see how similar/different the two methods are. 

    • MikeLM

      Speaking of juice fasts, I assume you've got some kind of a juicer. My son uses a VitaMix 5200 (about ten horsepower) blender to grind up both vegetables and fruits to make highly-concentrated smoothies which he lives on for days at a time. They usually taste great.  It keeps all the fiber, which of course a juicr does not. He eats an occasional large porterhouse steak to make sure he has a balanced diet.

      The VitaMix 5200 is the standard model and comes with cookbooks and a CD instruction program and a 7-year warranty. This is one hell of a kitchen tool for all kinds of apllications. In a recent TV demo, they zipped up a glass full of fruits, poured this out, rinsed the jug and then dropped in… a cellphone.  Blended the hell out of it. One of these days, I'm going to see how well it blends a coconut.

      They're pricey… list around $500, but if you research well on rhe web (and keep an eye on Costco for a special) you can land one for $400 or a little under. Any serious foodie (I'm one) will be delighted with what can be done with this thing.  Happy cooking

  • http://barraponto.blog.br Capi Etheriel

    I find it wonderful that it's working out for you. I suppose most of what you're feeling comes from not eating, actually, although getting your vitamins in the right proportion certainly makes a lot of good. I've been through several experiments with diets, most of them resorting to simplifying the diet, and the best so far (for me) is 80/10/10 by Dr Graham. The book will resonate a lot, since you're doing something very similar: you're cutting away the crap we're used to eat and you're having a healthy dose of exercise. BTW, just as I believe it's the not eating that is doing you the best, I also believe the exercise is key to your diet. So keep up with that :)

    As a next step you might consider polyphasic sleep. It's another order of magnitude improvement. Not only do you get to be awake 22h/day, you also get a memory that's unbeatable. The only down side of polyphasic sleep is that you can't socially sleep, it requires the discipline to keep it up as clockwork. But think of what you could achieve.

    • Josh

      I did some research/experimentation with sleep. Sleep is important in forming memories, and (I don't remember the article, but) increased periods of sleep lead to improved reaction time. You may have better short term memories, but I'm not sure about your long ter memory.

      I'm also not sure this diet is sustainable. Your fat can store sime vitamins and calories, which might get released during this experiment. So any test for this would have to take as long as your fat could hold out for.

    • Lens

      You successfully do polyphasic huh!  Since my experimenting in it Ive been able to sleep almost instantly nearly anywhere… But was not able to totally transition to it.  How many weeks did it take before you were no longer 'a zombie' waking refreshed every time?

  • FeedMeSoylent

    Thank you for your post and for your endeavors with Soylent.  

     

    I live with a horrible chronic illness (Crohn's and associated maladies) and am on a ridiculous variety of medications (immune suppressants and cortical steroids).  

     

    Food is my enemy.  Since I've had so many surgeries (bowel resections and other horrors) and taken these meds for such a long time, the side effects are becoming worse than the disease itself.  

     

    Every time I eat, I am gambling.  Sometime the result is an obstructed bowel, which feels like an alien is trying to claw it's way out of my abdomen.  Sometimes other horrible things happen that I won't describe.

     

    I'd love to try Soylent.  It would be absolutely fabulous to stop eating altogether.  Would you be willing to sell me a few days worth?  I am in Canada. (Eh!)

    • Amie

      Hello.  I also have Crohn's and have experimented with foods. I have been looking for a healthy liquid based item to replenish my body while I am having a flare up.  Through many trials and unsuccessful products, I began looking on the web for other solutions.  

      I found two powder mixtures that work well for me: Vega One (which is found online or at a whole foods type place), the other is Inflacleanse (found online).  But, they are rather expensive.  Soylent seems like the way to go if you figure out the proper proportions for your body.  Let me know how it goes.  I would love to try finding the proper amounts of each item with you.

        Eliminate wheat from your diet. Modern wheat is not the wheat our grandfathers ate. It has become so hybridized (for production results) that it is basically a GM (non)food now and is extremely harmful to the body. Read "Wheat Belly" by preventative cardiologist, Dr. William Davis.

        • Sallie

          Good book and well explained. Wheat is the cause of many ailments (I believe). It's high in acid and increases blood sugar, mental fog and a host of other things.

  • JJ

    I find this sentence on your pre-"Soylent" diet the most revealing of your post: "Typically I would cook eggs for breakfast, eat out for lunch, and cook a quesadilla, pasta, or a burger for dinner."

    It seems to me you went from one extreme (a lack of concern for proper nutrition)  to another extreme (a controlled study of essential nutrients in the human diet and their effect on your overall wellbeing).

    Essentially, you started "eating" right and exercising and are now amazed at the results. Medical professionals and dieticians have been advocating exactly the kind of lifestyle change you underwent for decades now (just not to the same scientific precision) because of exactly the same benefits you've listed.

    It's not hard to find thousands of testimonials online of people who changed their diet and lifestyle and report back exactly the same benefits that you've experience (youthful energy, clearer skin, whiter teeth, deep sleep yet waking up feeling refreshed, etc.).

    My only concern with your experiment is that I would worry about the long term effects of getting the proportions wrong on trace and ultratrace nutrients.

    So, while I commend your effort to focus on your health and wellbeing, I would stop short of saying you've found a revolutionary replacement for solid food that will cure world hunger and ignite the creative energies of American housewifes.

    • rob

      Before my diet was pretty typical of someone in my demographic, it’s basically how all my friends eat. I watched it a little, avoiding all fast food, eating kale, avoiding trans fats, and exercising a couple times a week. I was not extremely unhealthy, but average. I am fully conscious of the fact that a tightly controlled healthy traditional diet probably has essentially the same effects. My point was it’s a pain. It’s possible to be healthy, but it’s a massive expenditure of time, money, and self control. I just want to make it easy, and cheap. I resent that health is so strongly correlated with socioeconomic class. Maybe there are adverse long term effects, maybe the long term effects are positive. I think it’s worth testing.

      • Dave

        I completely agree with you here. It's one of the saddest things about healthiness. It really irritates me how health is associated with class. I see it all the time in the UK.

        Obesity is strongly correlated with poverty in the west.

        • Todd

          Could also be the people that give a S*** about themselves and their health are the same that give a S*** about busting their A** to make money instead of playing WoW and watching TV.

          • Karin H

            That's a pretty bullshit conclusion you've drawn there, Todd – "People who are poor, overweight and/or unhealthy only have their own laziness to blame".

            Cooking healthy meals from scratch takes time, energy and money that many people with families to feed and/or low paying jobs just don't have.  If your wife gets home from her Walmart job at 6:00 and your family of four has to be fed before you go off to your night job stocking supermarket shelves at 10:00, you don't have time or energy for either WoW or calibrating carb:protein ratios.

            Ever notice how it's the boxes of white pasta and HFCS breakfast cereal that are "buy 2, get 1 free" at the supermarket, and not the quinoa or the kale?  There's a LOT more to obesity and poor health than giving a S*** or busting A***. 

            I have a feeling you've never had to feed 2 kids on a patchwork of part-time jobs.

          • MaximilianKohler

            You seem upset Todd.

          • sony

            Well, I give a S*** about myself and my health, my diet is very strict and based on optimal healthiness and I do everything from scratch, I am slim and in a very good shape for my age. I also play a lot of wow and watch tv instead of busting my a** to make a lot of money, so where does that leave me in your theory? I choose not to spend a fortune for stuff I don't need and for expensive living quarters, instead I spend that time doing things I enjoy, whether it be computer games, tv&books, creating volunteer projects with my friends or traveling low budget.

            Healthiness and good values have nothing to do with excessive consumerism and killing yourself with stress, on the contrary. I'm happy to be in your "low class" to mess up your demographics.

            Grow up.

            I am a single mom, I work full time(as well as run a home based business), go to school full time all while trying to raise a healthy vibrant 5 year old.( I am not a teen mother either, my husband and I lost our first child and he never came too even after our second daughter’s birth so now I am on my own)  I don't play any video games, I don't go out unless it’s for my daughter( museums , zoo, etc. Which we generally scope out the free days) and we rarely eat out. I work, go to school, play with my daughter and go to sleep. I make 2 meals every night (dinner and if no leftovers whatever it is I will take for lunch). We don’t keep candysoda in our house. However it is very hard to keep healthy food (non-processed) around all the time because it is so expensive. I try to keep fresh fruit in a bowl for my daughter to grab and carrots/celery/raisins etc. as snack for her to grab but even that is not always possible.  I know exactly what is required to eat healthy and I care a great deal about that. It does not mean I can achieve it even working as hard as I do. There are times I go hungry or eat the cheap unhealthy food so that the fresh healthy (expensive) items are there for my daughter to eat instead. (Also I make $0.30 too much for government assistance….so no the government does not pay for my food)

            I have been reading everything on this site to see if this is something realistic for me (so that I can spend more on making a healthy food diet for my daughter since this is definantly nothing I would subject on her with such little testing)

            Please try to use your brain before you criticize an entire group of people and group them as one.

            That's very harse. Both my husband and I are obese. we try to eat correctly but quite simply cant afford it. We have minimum wage jobs and 3 children. we "bust our a***s" every day but do not have the time or  finances to be eating and cooking the healthy alternatives. 

        • Carol

          Perhaps the intersection is education.  Educated people tend to have more money and tend to know more about how to be healthy.  Maybe?

        How's this for life's long tern effects? In reality, death is inevitable for all. Why not feel better on life's trek whether one gets there by consuming nutritional solid food or something such as soylent? JJ, I don't understand why it matters? I think Rob especially makes the case for traveling the soylent route in the sheer economics of time and money.

    • Ashish

      That was pretty much my thought, and it's the same thought I have about people who report miracle benefits from Paleo, vegan, or anything other extreme diet. Before their transformation, they were eating like crap.

      • Joe

        I wasn't eating like crap, at least not according to the general recommendations, I was eating healthy, low fat meat and dair, with brown pasta, brown rice, brown bread, "healthy" cereals for breakfast etc. You get the point. Yet as I moved into my late 20's / early 30's, it got harder and harder to maintain my weight, and the intolerance I'd had of one or two things had ballooned into full blown IBS which was getting increasingly worse as time went on.

        After I switched to paleo and dropped the grains, the difference was amazing to the point that I was once again able to eat most of the foods which would previously have triggered IBS flare ups.

        Would it have been the same had I gone vegetarian, one that actually just eats vegetables? Possibly, but the point was that at that time I had no idea that it was the gluten and similar proteins in the grains that was causing my intolerence of other foods.

        So it's certainly not just about dropping the McDonalds and pizza, at least not for everyone.

    • Alex

      Additionally, I would think that the average person doesn't regulate their meals that scientifically either, and the majority of us fluxuate on our intake of trace nutrients (probably to a pretty extreme degree).  So, I think that if anything this represents a healthier, and probably safer alternative to most diets.

      • Don

        Based on the naysayers I'm figuring the following would need adjustment.

        – cultures/probiotic (which rob has stated he's already added)

        – Boron

        As far as protein is concerned, meat that is produced today is mostly fed feed that is composed of grass/hay, straw, corn & soy.  It could be argued that an animals specific metabolic functions provide certain amino acids that humans may not be able to consume, but it seems that the main components necessary are met.

        • Lindsay

          It is entirely possible to get all essential amino acids (that is, those we can't manufacture in vivo) from plant sources. 

    • Debita

      Just a thought – I'm new here today, but had to ask….I'm under the impression that the problem with today's diets (even for those of us who think we're eating fairly healthy), is that most of us are still missing proper nutrition, and without question missing the perfect proportions of trace and ultra-trace minerals.  Isn't that exactly what Rob is all about?  He sounds like he's on the right track, studying and proving his theories on himself.  I'm finding myself to be one of those American housewifes that is quite possibly feeling a stir here.  : )

  • Ben

    What's the different in this stuff and a comerical meal replacer, like Ensure?

    • Nursie

      Ensure is used typically used to all people and patients to gain weight rather then loose it's used a lot in hospitals and aged care facilities as a desert to ensure the clients and or patients gain weight and not actually use it, it doesn't give you as much of a fuller feeling,

      • Micah

        This is incorrect.  Ensure Plus is for gaining wait.  Ensure is for maintaining weight.  Glucerna is for diabetics (low sugar).  The product line ranges from 200 calories per bottle to 350 calories per bottle.  You need ~4 per day to meet your daily nutritional needs which comes out to 800 – 1400 calories per day if you stick to that.

  • Pingback: How I Stopped Eating Food : Mostly Harmless | fozbaca's WordPress()

    I would be interested to hear how this works without the carbohydrates. If you have given up on the positive aspects of eating them then I don't see any reason not to go fullly ketogenic.

    • rob

      I think that would be a very bad idea. The brain can only metabolize glucose for energy. Clinicians seem to be mostly in agreement that a fully ketogenic diet is unhealthy and dangerous.

      • Matt

        The brain can metabolize ketones for energy perfectly fine, and the body has no trouble synthesizing as much glucose as it needs.  I stuck to a <20g carb diet for around 6 months with no ill effect

      • renee

        I have also been on a fully ketogenic diet, less than twenty carbs per day. I felt better and was less hungry so I ate less. No ill effects for me either. If people would want to lose weight with this, I would recommend adding a keto product as well as the original. Doctors also recommend keto for diabetics.

      • JB

        I think this statement shows that you don't clearly understand all that is involved in nutrition yet. There isn't any substantial evidence currently that keto is more damaging than a higher/typical carbohydrate diet.

        You probably have a much higher risk with your diet versus keto (which is a well studied subject).

      • Chris

        After reading The Paleo Diet and The Paleo Solution by Dr. Loren Cordain and Robb Wolfe, respectively, I learned that the only organ in the body that requires carbs (more specifically glucose) is the brain.  Sufficient amounts of glucose can be produced through gluconeogenesis in the liver and are not required to be ingested.

      • http://www.damiencasoni.com Damien

        Rob please, read the good comments that have been made here on Ketogenic diet. They are correct.
        I'd love to experiment myself with a low-carb/hi-fat version of Soylent.

      • joe4liberty

        The waste product of glucose metabolism is carbon dioxide, something that the body disposes of VERY easily. The waste product of protein and fat metabolism is ammonia, uric acid (among other things), both of which are toxic to the body. Little or no carb. paleo diets put extra stress on your organs. I suspect that in 20 years when the hospitals are full of "new" cancer patients as a result of these unbalanced protein/fat high diets, everyone will be talking about high carb diets again, which will once again be – wrong. It’s all about balance. With that said, this 'diet' I suspect removes this issue as he is using (if I understand correctly) the direct Aminos rather than the raw protein source itself. From what I see, it’s very balanced, and you’ve got me VERY curious.

        • DJ

          So a diet that make you healthier by every measurable marker puts more stress on your organs?  Really?

          People thrive on low carb or even no carb diets… definately more than they thrived on high carb diets.

      • Sallie

        Without carbs and the body getting so much protein is a precursor to osteoporosis. The protein causes a slightly more acidic blood therefore in order to neutralize, it pulls from the bones calcium and other minerals which cannot be offset by simply taking more of. See The China Study. 

  • Adele

    I was wondering if anyone here knows exactly what differences there are in nutritional requirements for women, and whether there would be interest for a female version.

    • ka

      personally I'd be interested in seeing a female version of this, and hearing about how it works for someone to try it (I'd try it, but I'm one of those poor people he mentioned when discussing how not everyone can afford to buy random stuff, and of course I haven't got the knowledge to do it without instructions anyhow). I know some nutritional needs of women are quite different from men (and possibly quite different depending on one's age also?), so I'd like to know how Soylent would be different if it were intended for the ladies.

      to the OP: my boyfriend is throwing-up sick all the time and has trouble eating any kind of food, and when he DOES eat food it's whatever nonsense we can afford, so he also suffers from malnutrition… this sort of thing sounds like it'd be amazing! The idea of having energy to move about, having any kind of memory, and being able to do things again… for both me and him it sounds almost too good to be possible! But I know it would theoretically be possible if we ever magically got rich and could get personal trainers and buy things from whole foods etc. Since that is unlikely to happen we've just been muddling along however… but something like your creation could really help him! Currently he drinks a lot of Ensure-type drinks (the most expensive grocery item we get) and this sounds similar, but better, maybe? I like that you were able to balance it for your personal needs… I'm pretty sure the needs of someone who is 5'8" and weighs 115 lbs (and who really wants to gain weight) are different from yours so info on how to change up the formula would be great to have as well! :)

      • Amie

        Ensure helps people gain weight due to its high levels of carbs and sugar but lacks many needed nutrients.  It sounds like your boyfriend needs more nutrients but is not able to absorb them from food due to his body rejecting the food.  It might be helpful to blend up raw vegetables, fruits, yogurts and other items for him to drink.  It will be easier on his digestive tract and help him absorbed the nutrients he needs. 

  • Steve

    Tell me, what is the benefit of drinking this that I cannot aquire from a typical multivitamin? Obviously multivitamins don't contain much carbs, fat or protien.

    • rob

      Most multivitamins I looked at are also typically lacking in essential nutrients like Vitamin D, phosphorous, calcium, iron, potassium, and others.

      • Todd

        Most does not mean all… most multivitamins are a joke (centrum, one a day, etc), but you can absolutely find them with all these ingrediants – short of carbs/protein/fats.  Check mercola.com multivitamins, or Garden for life I believe.  Also Athletic Greens and similar drinks have been around for a while, the big difference appears to be the full dose carbs/fats/proteins in this drink.

        • Kyle

          My question exactly: it seems most of the chemical work here that can go wrong is in the vitamins and minerals.  Why not just pop a pill for that portion, and down some oligosaccharides, protein powder, and olive oil mixed in water?  

          I understand that a major goal here is time-efficiency, and this would speed things up.  

          Note: I suspect I'm completely ignorant of something important here, I just really want to know what.  I'm tempted to turn my lunches at work into just this (with a bit more research first).

          Love this experiment, the reasoning, and the experimentalism (and the writing too!).  I hope you end up turning out a great quality, low cost product eventually.  If nothing else, health conscious students everywhere will be lucking out.

      I have yet to find a complete multi. Like Rob, I make my own from the raw products – in my "kitchen chemestry set". I've just never tried to replace food… I'm VERY interested in this test…

  • http://becomingeden.com/ Will

    Rob, you mention in the overview that you decided to add 3 extra lbs to your weight in the fourth week (after a precipitious loss of 16 lbs in 21 days!).

    How did you do this? Did you keep the same proportions of everything and just increase your total Soylent intake? Did you increase macronutrients without increasing micronutrient content?

    Thanks, and good luck!

    • rob

      Correct, I simply increased my fat and carbohydrate intake.

  • Paul

    If you miss something that is not obvious at first look (for example proteins) your health may be in danger. So better leave this kind of experiments. And eat like all people do

      define "all people"… I eat mostly "raw" – though that's tough to do with my job that has me travel. People look at me like I'm from outer space when they see that I drink unrefrigerated raw milk and eggs, but my blood work is that of a man 1/2 my age (as is my fact, people regularly accuse me of lying when I tell them my age). So if "all people" means eating cooked food, no, I'm not all… this "experiment' Intrigues me

    Very Interesting idea. I hope to see a product come out of this, as many like me would be interested in more efficient eating.

    one question: from what I know, men don't need iron unless you lose blood (which some men do via blood letting).  Am I misinformed.

    • http://sermonsinstones.com Amy

      Of course men need iron. They make new blood cells, don’t they? Women of menstruating age need more, but everyone needs it.

      I’m a little amazed and very worried by how many people are willing to try a diet that’s had no studies to support it, that isn’t even described, just on the say-so of a stranger.I would think this was an Onion article (“housewives”? Running pi miles? Forgot iron–oops?) if it were funnier.

      • JB

        Agreed. This is a dangerous thing to advocate.

        Most of the claims you are making can be attributed to something other than "not eating" (you're still eating).

      • joe4liberty

        Really, do you know how many products are out there that can and might kill you, but people eat them because the FDA said they are "okay"? The FDA is a political group nothing more. I'd trust my own body to discover the results much sooner buying something off of the shelf that someone else made and the FDA has approved. Seriously, look at the ingredients in this. It's food – just in liquid form. The question is, is it complete? Is there something missing? is it actually better than eating food? Maybe, maybe not, but it's not gonna kill ya like say… aspartame will, and that's in damn near everything, but it's okay, the FDA said it's good for you… think for yourself. I like the idea of weekly blood tests to see what’s really happening, but they can be expensive…  Do it or don't do it by your own decision – be your own person.

      • imchris

        Let's be honest, people make amazingly bad choices in life when it comes to a lot of things. How many things do people do that are dangerous and without thought? McDonalds & others have built an industry around this mindset. Great ideas like this (and yes, I agree it's great for many reasons) didn't always start in a lab, but with an idea and a person willing to go through the effort. Now that he's exposed himself to it, let's figure out how to get it going so we can all be better from it. Now let's use our collective knowledge and mindset, help him refine and make it more effective, and see what it's like.

        Little is known about the long-term in a lot of things, but we have to try.

      • Ann

        Georgia Tech has a pi mile. That's where he ran, it isn't a joke.

    • David

      Men do need iron, but at much lower levels than women. True, we are constantly making red blood cells, but the iron for that is largly recycled from old ones, with a small regular intake from diet to make up for the small losses (through cuts, tiny amounts in feces, etc.). There is also a reasonable store inside the body.

       

      I was also surprised at how quickly iron seemed to help. Certainly in a healthy male, three days is not even close to enough time to become anaemic. I would suggest mentioning anything like this to your family physician/general practitioner – rapid iron loss is suggestive of bleeding (internal/into the bowels). Although it is possible there is some other function for iron in the diet, such as assisting nutrient absorption, that I am unaware of.

      • Gray

        As an example of how complex the interaction is between different elements of a diet is, iron's absorption is also affected by your vitamin C consumption. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6940487 It's unclear how much vitamin C would be needed in a liquid diet like this one – certainly more than the RDA which is the minimum needed to prevent scurvy on a regular diet. I'm concerned Rob's mixture may not have enough vitamin C – it's easy to have a subclinical deprivation that doesn't (yet) result in actual scurvy because your body is consuming its reserves. A month of this diet is not enough to tell what the long term effects will be – malnutrition could set in after a year or more.

        I absolutely second others' concerns about gut flora, too. Just taking a macrobiotic bacteria supplement like yakult is not enough to ensure all of your diverse populations of gut flora are healthy. Gut flora are a key factor in the health of your immune system. The general low frequency of bowel movements raises concerns about colon cancer etc. Humans (except babies) are not designed for a liquid diet.

        The experimenter's ignorance about ketogenic diets is worrying too. You are confusing ketosis with ketoacidosis. Ketogenic diets are actually used as a treatment for conditions such as epilepsy – they certainly aren't impossible to maintain. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2367001/ Some cultures such as the Inuit eat a very low carbohydrate diet as standard their entire lives. As previous commenters have pointed out, many western people now have personal experience of low carb, paleo diets etc with no ill effects over 6 months plus. My own family eats such a diet.

        Lastly, what about the pleasure of eating solid food? Some people on this comment board act as if food and sleep are a waste of time and undesirable. But they are a pleasurable and necessary part of being human. If you want to save time, what do you want to save the time for? If you're unsatisfied with your life, there are probably deeper problems at root. In an otherwise healthy person, this obsession with completely altering and controlling your diet sounds kinda like the onset of an eating disorder to be honest ('I eat socially' etc).

        • Debita

          My first time reading and taking all this in….Like you, I also had the same reaction about low frequency bowel movements, and found myself wishing that was not an outcome of this diet.  Isn't the natural design of our biologic system a priority in how our body functions?  Are we advanced enough physically and think that the process of using everything that we consume to the point of very little waste is possible?  I mean, I like new and genius ideas, but producing bodily waste could be something our bodies need to do, since by design, many of our organs are used for that purpose.  That said, I can't tell you how badly I would like to try this, find out that Rob is the genius of our time, and that maybe our poor organs would appreciate the relief.

  • Rationalist

    I don't beleive this fiction; you have not given even close to the details required from someone who has actually done this. No mention of protein or carbohydrate sources, no details AT ALL (and no replies to comments asking for it) of the composition of the drink, etc.

  • Ashish

    This project assumes that our understanding of human nutritional requirements is complete – Soylent is designed to the current "dietary spec." 

    If there's one dietary statement I'm very confident in making, it is that our understanding of long-term human dietary needs will be very different in 100 years than it is today. "Good bacteria" is just the beginning of what remains to be understood.

    If I'm right, then Soylent will prove deficient (compared to a balanced diet of whole foods and fermented foods) in ways we can't yet understand.

    • KPax

      I agree with what you're saying but of course the recipe could be expanded to include these findings as they emerge. For example, some "good bacteria" are available as supplements already: Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidus Acidophilus. If I were to replicate this stuff I'd certainly add some of these into the mix.

    • Alex

      I think that the premise this is based on, even if it is assumed, is a sound one.  People need food because of the various fuels it provides, not because of it's carrying vessel (e.g. the food itself).  While it is likely that our bodies have adapted to eating food for nutrients, I would argue that doesn't make it the end-all be-all of nutrient intake.  You seem to be ignoring the results of the experiment.

  • Jacob

    I would love to try this out. Any way a recipe list/list of where you purchased your suppliments could be shared?

    This is bogus on soooo many levels, I shudder to think of all the people this guy is going to f'up if he seriously reveals some hokey formula and people actually try to use this. Might even kill a few.

    Just consider this:  http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/organic/essam.html
    This guy says his concoction is "chemicals" and that by experimentation he can get it right: "your body knows what it needs more of"…  Well, nowhere does he ever mention essential amino acids.  Hello?? I am not sure what he classifies as "chemicals" but the best way to get these essential amino acids in your system is to allow your system what it has taken, oh, say, 3 million years to evolve to do: ingest plants and other animals and break them down to the "chemicals" it needs.  Without getting all persnickety about "toxins".  Sure, modern prepared foods are way out of line with an occasional brontosaurus burger and mostly lots of yams, clams, and lambs…  but all  you need to do is eat to live, not live to eat; and with that level of scrutiny and some exercise, most people do just fine.

    Besides that, like, seriously, does anyone really think that their gastrointestinal track will be really really happy put at rest like this?  It sometimes happens to people in the hospital and it is an absolute NIGHTMARE even in a hospital with all the intravenous nutrition you could want at your disposal to keep someone who cannot eat food adequately nutritionally maintained to avoid wasting.

    Years (scratch that – decades ) ago, this type of unsubstantiated hoccum used to fill various "ladies journals" like Readers' Digest, and various magazines.  Now, I don't see them all that often.  I am not sure if it is because our scientific literacy has gone up, or what, but people used to make all kinds of claims about boosting you memory to phenomenal levels, staying alert, losing weight effortlessly, learning in your sleep, having energy reserves, etc… Hoccum.

    Bottom line: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

  • beccy

    Wow, I think this is great. I love what you've done (and also how courteous you are to doubters in the comments). I am not skeptical about the dietary aspect of this, but I am curious about this statement: "…is easy to transport, cheap and environmentally friendly to produce, contains no pesticides, hormones, or preservatives". How are these products produced, I wonder? If you are consuming whey protein, that is a dairy product, and therefore part of the animal food industry… which is both environmentally unsound as well as inhumane, no? (Yes I'm an annoying vegan.) Also I don't think it would be free of hormones – dairy cows are sometimes given hormones to increase production (unless you are using organic whey, but you are going for cheapness, so I doubt it) – nor would I want to assume that its free of pesticides (what are cows fed?).  And all the other products you use to make Soylent – how are they manufactured? I want to believe this is as you say – environmentally sound, etc, but I'd be very interested if you can explain where these products come from and the carbon footprint involved. Thank you :) – beccy 

    • rob

      Hi Beccy, good points. I think the whey protein is quite isolated so any amount of hormone or pesticide would be negligible. Though I hope to have the equipment soon to analyze it and know for sure. I know whey requires the use of cows, but milking them seems pretty sustainable. We’ve been milking cows for a long time. In fact not milking cows seems inhumane. They get rather uncomfortable if not milked. I think most of the environmental impact of the cattle industry comes from meat cows. The protein could also come from soy or brown rice but that is much more expensive. For now I’m more concerned with practical methods of reduction than complete elimination. I’ll focus on the ingredients that have significant volume: carbs and fat. Maltodextrin is enzymatically extracted from any starch. In the united states it comes from corn. However, it could also be made from rice or wheat for example. Olive oil is not required in large volumes and it comes from, well, olives. This is no panacea, but I am quite confident it constitutes a reduction in consumption and environmental impact compared to traditional foodstuffs.

      • beccy

        Thanks for your response Rob. Re the dairy factor – the cows only get uncomfortable if not milked because they have been separated from their calves who should be drinking their milk… The human dependence on a product that evolved very specifically for baby cows is definitely worth questioning. Also the cows are kept almost continually pregnant, and their calves removed at 3 days of age (as fellow mammals they have the same biochemical processes that would make this traumatic). They are milked by machines for 4 hours a day and often kept in cramped concrete barns.. It's not really much of a life. Generally I find the industrialisation of animals to be a sad state of affairs. But then, I also find capitalism to be so. I personally would fork out extra $ on non-animal protein. Just speaking up for the cows here. Still, I really appreciate what you are doing :)

        • Alex Andersson

          Humans are the only species on the planet that continue to drink milk beyond infancy and the only species to drink the milk of another species (apart from rare fosterings born out of survival instincts). Also it would be interesting to compare the carbon footprint of producing, extracting and refining the nutrients, vitamins and minerals in this diet as opposed to panting, growing, harvesting, packaging, cooking, consuming and disposing of standard food produce.

        • joe4liberty

          trouble is that non-animal proteins are incomplete. This is of course not to say that one could not "make" a complete protein by mixing free-form aminos (which I mistakenly thought Rob was doing). Far and away, the two most complete protein sources for humans are Whey and egg Albumen. It may not be nice to the cows and chickens, but we didn't choose to be omnivores, we were born that way. I think it better to milk the cow than kill it, but I suppose it depends on the farmer.

          • joe4liberty

            BTW, the Whey that I use regularly is "One World Whey" Google it, it's the only non-denatured whey, which means that they take raw milk, and then do NOT heat it to make the powder. BTW bccy, they claim that the cows are free range, grass-fed, non-hormone, and humanely treated (but to be clear, I've never visited the farm).

          • Janice

            The complete vs incomplete protein myths have long been shattered. Look into info on this. Plants are complete proteins, it all depends on how you define it. And if using traditional mainstream definitions, then numerous plant foods still fit the bill, ex, quinoa, etc. 

      • Rosemary

        Just waying in on the Whey debate… How about substituting it with Hemp Powder? Its the richest plant source of protein and has a lot more amino acids & fiber included, may be able to reduce the quantities of the others just by adding hemp.

         

        I think this is a fabulous idea by the way, if i were in the US i would definately sign up for a trial. I have tried something similar before but i dont have the knowledge to pull off a complete food abstinance.  I think it would be a great product to aid in many ailments. A lot of which are caused by bad dietary habits that no one really realises. If you could create variations for men, women, aged, menopausal, pregnant, sporting, obese, even people who may need extra nutrients because they smoke for example.

    Your assumption that the "slump" on day 3 was due to the absence of iron in the first soylent is incorrect. Your iron stores would not be depleted after only three days of it being absent from your diet. and even if it was, the half life of a red blood cell is 120 days, and haematopoiesis takes 8 days (from proerythrocyte to  RBC in circulation.) So, no. 

    It seems you went from a quite unhealthy diet of high saturated fat and high glycemic index foods (quesadilla, pasta, burger, eggs) to a healthier diet more in line with your physiologic needs. Would you have acheived the same benefits with a healthier diet consisting mainly of fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, whole unaltered cereals and healthy protein sources?

    Furthermore, the idea that you are detaching yourself from food-systems is fallacious – you are growing more dependent on the industrial agricultural complex providing you with purified/extracted forms of nutrients. The processed items that you are using in Soylent are just as energetically expensive to produce, and may have the same impact on the environment if not worse than the original foodstuffs. 

      You are also assuming that we only eat to sustain ourselves. However, there is increasing evidence that what we eat must also sustain the human microbiome that contributes to human health – a collection of microorganisms that colonize your bowels. As strange as this might sound, it is probably of some importance that your diet includes some "probiotic" organisms. you might want to have some yougurt every now and then.

    • joe4liberty

      Interesting points, but let's remember the point of his "diet" is: fast, cheap, and easy. He's not trying to improve on traditional food, he's trying to replace it. Big difference. If he gets the recipe correct, he seems to have it. I too hate the burden of shopping for food, preparing food, and eating food. Sure I like to go out with friends from time to time, but like Rob, if I could do away with the shopping/preparing/eating of food, I would be MUCH happier.

    Hi there,

    I'm concerned about the environmental impact of such a diet. Highly processed food and nutrients are almost entirely fossil fuel dependent. Though you may think you're drinking a health beverage, if the plants from which those nutrients were extracted were fertilized with chemical fertilizers you would be ultimately eating fossil fuels.

          the idea has merit.  and as a fellow engineer, I'm sure he's researched pretty well.  That said, he IS NOT attempting to submit this to a peer-reviewed journal. Also, 30 days on ANY diet is not going to hurt the average person.  However, this idea serves me as a meal replacement, potentially as high as 2/3 of my intake.  I also like the potential of this as a survival/camping/hiking product.

    Regarding the questions about stuff like Ensure or Boost. Those products are just sugary shakes. They are not a meal replacement or nutritional supplement at all. You’re better off buying sweet chocolate milk. Read the label!

      Ensure/Boost are meal replacements.  They are designed to give to people who can't eat solid food for one reason or another (often due to surgery and such).

    Someone named Rob Rhinehart has greatly reduced the time and money he spends on food by drinking something he thinks contains all essential nutrients. Someone pointed out to him that he needs bacteria, which he doesn’t have. (No doubt several types of bacteria are best.) He doesn’t realize that Vitamin K has several forms. I suspect he’s getting too little omega-3. This reminds me of a man who greatly reduced how much he slept by sleeping 15 minutes every 3 hours. It didn’t work out well for him (his creativity vanished and he became bored and unhappy). In Rhinehart’s case, I can’t predict what will happen so it’s fascinating. When something goes wrong, however, I’ll be surprised if he can figure out what caused the problem.

  • http://logicversusemotion.blogspot.com D. M. Mitchell

    If you were eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) which it seems you were, then you were definitely deficient in nutrients.

    As to cholesterol, LDL and HDL, etc.,  they are not cholesterol, they are lipoprotiens for the purpose of carrying cholesterol molecules throughout the body. There is much evidence that oxidized LDL is a cause of arterial plaque and heart disease. There is only one cholesterol molecule and cholesterol is necessary for life. It's in every cell of your body and your body produces most of it. You get very little from your diet. Studies have found that old people (not youngsters like you) who have high cholesterol levels (above 200, but below 350) are healthier and live longer than old people with cholesterol levels below 160.

    Calories do count. You can eat too many calories of any macronutrient and gain weight. However, again, studies have found that eating carbohydrates (even whole grains) will more likely cause weight gain than eating good, natural saturated fats.

    Finally, this sounds like a really good experiment. Keep up the good work. It will be interesting how you are doing in a year. Hopefully, quite well. Myself, I would miss the flavor of rare, pasture-raised beef steak (no grains, no hormones, no anti-biotics). Mmm-Mmm!

    P.S. In a reply to a comment, above, (Amie and Crohn's disease) I recommended eliminating wheat from one's diet totally. It has become a frankenfood due to intensive hybridization. Dr. William Davis, a preventative cardiologist, explains this in his book "Wheat Belly," or go to wheatbellyblog and see some of the questions and answers.

    your results seem really similar to someone doing a juice fast, or even just a no food fast. I'd be interested to read months 2-5.

  • Les

    Interesting hypothesis, however a similar experiment has been conducted on our food supply for over a century based on similar reductionist theories.  That is that by only providing a living thing with basic nutritional elements outside the whole of the environment an organism can survive.  Just as plants can grow and live on basic fertilizers, it seems they lose fundamental nutritional value.  The flaw in your theory is that you assume that we understand all of the human nutritional means and we can synthesize these needs.

    I have been on an opposite approach using ancestral diet fundamentals relying on our foods being raised naturally.  In this way the basic foods are grown in environments suited to provide the food all its needs, and thus provide our nutritional needs.  Animals raised in pastured conditions without the addition of hormones, grains, or medications, seafood caught in the wild rather than in confined pens and fed unnatural nutrients, and plants raised without the addition of synthetic chemicals would better provide our nutritional needs without us having to understand the underlying nutritional components.  In other words, nature working as nature intended.

    The other issue missing from your theory is the social component, also necessary for healthy living.  Meals are institutions distilling food knowledge and social protocols that humans have assimilated over the eons. Scientifically, a synthetic concoction may be able to satisfy nutritional needs, but what of the social costs of removing meals from the human experience?  A meal is meant to be a celebration, giving thanks for the bounties of life and sharing the daily experiences.  It is one of the most fundamental rituals of human living that teach us how to interact as a society.

    • rob

      I still eat socially, and enjoy it thoroughly. However, I was eating most of my meals by myself, from cheap and convenient foods, which was unhealthy. I appreciate good food, I just choose to consume soylent about 95% of the time now.

      Also while your premise is intuitive, there has been no evidence that organic food is healthier than conventional food: http://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/organic-food-no-more-nutritious-than-conventionally-grown-food-201209055264. Most processed food had little to no nutritional value to begin with. Food processing does not destroy any healthy nutrients, though some are mildly reduced: http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/Data/retn5/retn5_tbl.pdf

      Why would an ancestral diet be preferable? Do we use ancestral means of medicine, sanitation, or transportation? Today people are much taller, healthier and longer lived on average than primitives. After we understand the fundamental principles technology can be used to vastly improve our quality of life. It seemed food had been left behind. Perhaps I am missing an essential nutrient that we were not aware of. That is why I am testing. I’m certainly not forming the conclusion that I am not, but the evidence so far is clear. The body is pretty robust as well, one can live on milk and potatoes for decades. While perhaps not ideal, I think this is certainly better than the average diet.

      • Chris

        Rob,

        I'm all for Soylent, and while your Harvard link states that organic is not necessarily healthier than traditional, a read through The Paleo Diet will quickly having you buy into grass-fed meats and wild caught fish.  The premise is that grains and their proteins, such as gluten, are not preferred by the body, often even rejected like Ciliac's disease, and that most of us have simply built up a tolerance to them as we can with so many things in our lives (I develop or lose a tolerance to dogs/cats based on my exposure).  But these negative traits are passed along through the meat if the animal is fed grains too, which are unnatural for that animal to eat (cows don't eat corn in a corn field).  The human body is adaptive for sure.  But agriculture has been great for us as a species, though it does not provide the perfect model for personal health.  Grains are practically devoid of nutrition, simply being a storable, cheap vehicle for calories.

         

      • joe4liberty

        Thank-You!!! It has annoyed me for some time all the “eat what the cavemen ate” Bull $hit. I don’t want to die at 20 like they did (actually, being 50 looks like I missed that bus). My doctor says that he is embarrassed to do my blood work because it’s nearly perfect and better than his, and people regularly confuse me for a 29 year old… AI eat organic just to avoid the pesticides. Maybe they do not cause us harm, but since they do not help, I figure I’d rather forgo them. As for the “grains are bad” crowd, I eat the traditional high carb, med protein, low fat diet, and always have. The difference is I do not trust the agribusiness, and so buy old grails, sprouted from organic farms. I eat raw whenever possible (yes, including eggs, milk, fish, etc…). With that, I am NOT afraid of embracing modern science. My cupboard looks like a chemistry set. I take BCAA’s before and after workouts. I tale a 2-1 AAKG/OKG mix to fuel growth hormone. I use creative ribose to hydrate my muscle cells. My vitamin supplement is mixed by yours truly out of more than a dozen bottles. I have the energy of a 20 year old, and as mentioned, the blood to show for it. Yes, I juice raw veggies, and eat whole grains, and unadulterated meats, but I am not Amish… my head isn’t stuck in the 18th century (no offence intended to that religion, I just have always wondered why they chose to draw the line in the sand in that century as opposed to any other… just as I wonder why today’s fad dieters are choosing to set their diet millennia further back). BTW, anyone who thinks that cavemen didn’t eat tubers and grains isn’t thinking clearly… proteins can run faster than veggies…

  • foodhatesme

    As someone with a number of food allergies, this sounds very interesting to me. I'm lactose-intolerant, and I'm also allergic to a variety of foods, including mushrooms, coconut, chocolate, berries, tea, and wine. Consequently, I tend to eat the same thing every day–it's just easier. Soylent would certainly make things even easier for me, but I'm concerned that it may contain some of the chemicals that make me sick. For example, berries, tea and wine all contain tannin, which causes me to have migraines. How does your formula address common food allergies?

    • rob

      I have not tested enough with people with food allergies but I don’t think an allergy to an essential nutrient could have entered the gene pool. Tannin is not present. Unless one is allergic to one of the non-essential extras any food allergy should be non-reactive. The only doubt is perhaps the effect of whey protein on the lactose intolerant but whey isolate is devoid of lactose. I could replace this with an alternative source of amino acids as well.

      • Karanime

        Not really an allergy, but there's phenylketonuria.

        Phenylketonuria is a rare defect in which the body is unable to break down phenylalanine. A buildup of phenylalanine in the body can cause irreparable damage. I'm sure there's a way to make Soylent suitable for phenylketonurics, but it might take some work.

    How universal is this formula? I would imagine, proportionally, the body's requirement of many of these ingredients will very according to a number of factors, such as age, lifestyle, environmental conditions, along with a host of genetic factors.

    I suppose the tests you are carrying out are largely intended to identify this, but I would be interested to know what degree of variation you are expecting.

  • Micah

    I actually did a switch like this with my roommate a couple years ago.  I went with pre-packaged meal replacement drinks (Ensure/Boost) and he went with a custom mixture as you did.  I chose Ensure/Boost because I didn't want to have to spend time preparing anything and he chose a custom mix because he wanted to tweak it to exactly what he wanted.

    Ensure has a range of products from 200 calories per bottle to 350 calories per bottle.  They contain everything your body needs to survive (it is what they give to people who *can't* eat solid foods).  They keep well (~6 month shelf life).  They come in a number of flavors.  They are far easier than preparing a concoction and require no dishes (not even a glass).

    I did a 2 month stint on Ensure and water only followed by bloodwork with the only negative side effect being lack of fiber, which I resolved by supplamenting with fiber tablets (which taste like candy by the way, even though they are pure fiber).  I now do something similar to you in that I use Ensure as my staple and eat as a form of entertainment only, not as a means of survival.  This usually results in one meal every day or two depending on what else I have going on and who I am with.

    Originally I picked a flavor I liked and stuck with it but I found that I ended up disliking the flavor due to the repetition.  Having 5 flavors to choose from with Ensure results in my cycling through them and never getting "sick of" any one flavor.  I think for long term (I'm past 2 years now) you really have to consider the "sick of it" factor that is difficult to resolve with a custom drink.

    This is an excellent idea.  I'm very curious, however, how the Soylent diet would affect an individuals microbiome.  The microbial community in our gut plays an imporant role in our digestive and immune systems, and our diet in turn affects microbial community composition.

    Any thoughts?  

  • http://www.EvolveWithEVO.com EVO

    Wow, lots of hate here.

    Honestly, I see this simply as a no-nonsense diet. Most diets try to cram all the essentials into a palatable and user-friendly system that sounds nice because the practitioner can say to his or her mates "I just eat more chicken and beans and I don't have to change much else!". What you have done is cut through the rubbish and concocted a mixture of the essentials – the good things we should be getting from our food.

    As it is your body on which you are performing this experiment, I gather you have done so under plenty of consult from your physician, just as anyone else should if he or she were to try this experiment on his or her own self.

    As for the "missing pieces" that everyone seems to be concerned with, I reckon that regular tracking would help you identify where your potion is varying from what is understood to be necessary for nutritional sustenance.

    Great article, Rob! I have for some time been wondering how feasible this would actually be. Excited to see what you make of it!

    Interesting read. I read an interview with you on Vice, and you mentioned you were having trouble preparing it in advance. If this is because it spoils, potentially you could try autoclaving it. 

    What you're doing is very familiar for any microbiologist who has had to prepare nutrient media for growing microbes, and sterilising the solution inside an appropriate bottle (eg. Schott bottle) with an autoclave is how we make sure our nutrient media lasts on the shelf. 

    You'll experience a change in the composition of your drink though, as some of the protein would get denatured, etc.

      Synthetic nourishment already exists, but this is the first time I've ever seen anyone talk seriously about it as a thing that average people could use in a non-medically-required context. It should be a bigger field of study than it currently is. There should already be a product on the market like this, but there are only nutritritionally incomplete weight-loss shakes. The nature of healthy food really needs to be demystified. So why not raise the question with an attention-grabbing experiment?

  • cody vincelet

  • Dave

    Only in 2013 would you find someone who actually thinks that eating food is a 'leisure activity', and that food is 'so inefficient' (?). Every other organism on the planet eats food to survive, real food that is made of other real living things. We are no exception. I also believe that a lot of the products and powders you use to make your drink are expensive to produce, and require lots of wasteful energy to harvest them from the environment. It's much more efficient to get the nutrients directly from the source, rather than from some byproduct of some industrial process that has taken time and energy from other people to produce. What about all the waste that is generated in the production of all your nearly pure chemicals? Where did your sources get the resources to extract them? From the Earth, and that compounds whatever waste is generated by just harvesting the specific plant or material necessary for the production of that specific chemical. The problem with food today is not really that hard. In fact it is incredibly obvious: there are too many people on this planet. That's pretty much it; too many people consuming too many things. Solving world hunger might mean reducing the amount of people on the planet. Whether this is accomplished peacefully or not is a different matter.

    • Chris

      So let me get this right Dave; you think that synthetic nutrition is a less appealing solution to world hunger than genocide? That seems to be what you're suggesting… (By the way, I agree the world is overpopulated, but that problem isn't going anywhere, so we've got to learn to deal with it.)

      Also, your argument pointing to the hidden cost of these raw ingredients doesn't stand up. If the ingredients don't cost much to buy, then they didn't cost much to produce; that's simple economics. If they are a by-product of some larger more costly process, then what Rob is essentially doing is re-using waste products; no harm there I believe.

      No other organism has achieved the level of control over the terms of their own existence as we have. I don't quite see the point of naturalistic arguments in this kind of context. Every other organism on the planet doesn't wear trousers; does that mean we should cast off our legwear and return to nature?

    • CJ

      Spoken as someone who I am guessing does not face significant health problems on a daily basis. 

       

      For people with digestive disease (like me), food is NOT a leisure activity. It is a painful chore that I would just as soon not do if I had the option. I have not enjoyed food in over a decade. It's impossible to when all it does is make you ill. I've tried elimination diets. None have worked. The body requires protein (amino acids), but my body rejects nearly all protein sources (food allergies). That's just a single example of the difficulties I (and people like me) face. Therefore, something like Soylent (although not necessarily Soylent) is a viable option to end suffering or at least greatly reduce it. 

  • Chris

    I'm in Rob.  As a fellow engineer, I see the efficiency here, and trust in your research for the formula.  As an ardent, although not strict, supporter of the paleo way of eating, I see potential here based on the nutritional science I learned while researching that

  • Michael

    I find it a bit curious that there is no mention of people from medical fields studying him. While, as someone with a background in mathematics, I do agree that scientists in the fields of biology, psychology, nutrition, etc. can tend to employ very poor statistical methods for various reasons (e.g. complexity of the study, lack of education in statistical theory), I am absolutely certain that some bloodwork and "this is how I feel" reports are not sufficient metrics for such a massive change in nutrition. Surely it wouldn't be difficult to find top researchers who are willing to monitor and study your health for a publishable paper?

  • Rory

    Have you done any sort of system dynamics for the manufacturing of the various ingredients vs standard farming/cooking/etc? It would be interesting to see if this is the real potential of an industrialized system, provided its sustainable. $150/mo says as much anyway. Way to go.

  • AlexD

    I think such a formula could take a lifetime to perfect, you never know the long-term implications of certain deficiencies, be it flavanoids, anti-oxidants, friendly bacteria or countless other things. However, adding a glass of vegetable/fruit juice daily should keep things fine.

  • Marshmallow

    Sounds amazing. I might not give up on food completely, but most of the time I have to eat alone which is pretty boring and a waste of time. I deleted breakfast from my schedule completely, but your drink sounds like a healthy alternative. Had the same idea as a child, but no one ever picked up on it.

  • MinniMouse

    What you describe are the typical signs of fasting. Loads of energy, less sleep needed, clearer thinking, better blood results, clearer skin etc. I have been doing juice/protein fasts for years on and off and it is excatly that. You can not stay on this forever and believe me, it is antisocial and not for families. Soylent as a name well chosen, wonder if everybody here knows where the name comes from… I strongly believe this is NO solution for food crises though, as the products you use also need to come from somewhere and ANY nutritionist would laugh at you for believing you could mimic synthetically ALL the nutrients and minerals the body needs. We still only scratch on the surface of understanding the complicated system of nutrition. You can survive and you get a high from the fasting and cleaning, saving your body energy you would normally use for digestion — for a while. It is exhilarating but believe me, after months on it, you get more than just cravings…Been there, done that…and I still love it, so that I do it again and again. Also falls right into place with the beneficial effects of intermittent fasting and calorie restriction to extend life expectancy.

    • http://EllisBenus.com/ Ellis Benus

      Rob has stated OVER AND OVER this is a test for him, and that Soylent need not be the ONLY food source someone tries. As a fellow person who fasts (from all food but water) regularly and who has done juice fasts I can attest to the "faster's high." However, if you check out the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead (http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/) you will see Rob is definitely not the first person to subsist on a no-chewing diet for a long period of time. Joe Cross did a juice fast for 90 days I believe before he got back into "regular food consumption." Soylent could be a fantastic way for people to kick start weight loss healthily and get their body somewhere they are happy with. You and I both know abstinance fasting and juice fasting help you eat healthier when you return to "food."

  • Ed

    I think you have totally underestimated the importance of the physiological and biochemical effects of chewing, for example in the production of amylase and the stimulating effects it has on other digestive secretions. While you may only think that chewing is necessary if something needs 'digesting', there is more to it than that. Take a look at vitamin B12 – the absorption chemistry of this is extremely complex, and I'm sure that a good MD will warn you that it is very difficult to maintain or boost B12 levels just by popping pills. Take a look at http://www.active-b12.com/content/vitamin-b12-absorption to get some idea of how complex the reactions are and where saliva fits into the picture. This is just one 'simple' essential vitamin but a very complex absorption/transportation system.

    AFAIK a complete study of the effects of abstaining from chewing has never been done – you will make an ideal guinea pig!

    I find this whole idea highly interesting, but i either have missed something or it's simply not listed. What of your thirst? I understand you say you drink your soylent with water, but from personal experiance, i am thirsty much more often than i am hungry. Do you simply drink more water? And you exercise intensely consistantly right? How are you implementing this in your exercise routine? I am highly intrigued by this topic and i am more inclined to listen or read what you have to say than simply dismiss it. I applaud what you have done so far.

  • Dennis Major

    I did a quick scan and it seems you have reduced a large amount of fibre from this diet (defecating infrequently). This should raise a red flag to anyone that has a complete understanding of how the gut was designed ,how it functions and what it's needs are. This reduction in the muscular function of moving waste is a very bad mistake.

    Due to the large reduction in waste, the ability of the colon to move product will slowly atrophy to the point where, if not soon, at some point there is the strong possibility of doing serious damage to one of the prime purposes of the intestinal system and blockage could very likely become a consequence requiring medical intervention.

    You can be guaranteed that if you drastically reduce a prime purpose of the colon there will be consequences that over the long term that will be serious.

    Want a metaphor – think about a mechanism that allows you to be fully mobile without using you legs. Your leg muscels and the blood transport system in your legs will atrophy with quite serious consequences to you body's overall health that would require interventions of some sort to at least partially remedy the problems it would cause.

  • Dimitar

    While I find what the guy is doing fascinating and I support the general idea, I think it's very irresponsible to post some "amazing" results after just a month. The body is well able to survive on just water for a month without huge problems besides weight loss. In other words, you doing some type of diet for one month means nothing. In addition, it's mixed with running (which was not part of his lifestyle before?), which further blurrs the effects of the diet change to soylent.

    • Doodily Do

      I agree, Dimitar. If Rob wanted to be taken seriously, follow-up reports at regular intervals would be required to satisfy the skeptics.

      If this were a scientifically controlled experiment, interim reports at 2, 3, 6, and 12 months would be part of the protocol laid out before the experiment began, and follow-up reports at years 2, 5, and 10 would likely be proposed options.

    I spotted a glitch in your hypothesis, You mentioned "What if I consumed only the raw ingredients the body uses for energy?'' and then later in your experiment when you realize the possible iron deficiency you add an iron supplement in your Soylent…why not take it by raw ingredients as you declared, like spinach, lentils etc. (eat them raw).  

    • science

      Haha this guy got it all wrong.. Raw ≠ uncooked.

  • Tony

    Dude! I think your Soylent will be greatly procured by NASA & future human races that might have to migrate to other planets. You should patent your formula & creations asap! Even if its not yet tested against the many problems raised by users here, it does has alot of commercial values. Imagine armies fighting in desert for months, astronauts manning the space station, starvation in poor countries…

  • Lolling

    Er… I doubt not that your Soylent might be good for health, but… rather than praising its qualities, i'd like to highlight the fact that you stopped eating in restaurants or fastfoods, and stopped eating junkfood in general. Plus you started running and going to the gym.

    I reckon there's a little part of placebo effect, along with all the benefits you get when you stop eating too much fat. You didn't invent anything new, actually ^^

    Don't think there's anything surprising in the results of your experiment. But, personally, since I really like eating good and healthy food, for I deeply enjoy the huge variety of tastes it provides, I wouldn't try your Soylent-based diet for, say, more than a week…. sorry :)

    Exercising is kinda skewing your results here.  When I haven't been running in a while I can maybe get 3-6 miles in.  After a few weeks of running 2-3 times a week I could get up to 10.  Maybe 12 if I were really feeling good.  I'd say my diet isn't great & I'm chubby but I do enjoy running when I'm in the mood.

    How sad! You have chosen to remove one great joy from your life: the enjoyment of good food. This is one of life's simple pleasures, and you've tossed it along with the baby and the bathwater.

    I will not say I read all of the post other people put but I did read about the ketogenic diet. Theoretically you could have less carbs for someone who was over weight, do you think you would do an experiment like this? I have been trying for months do drop about 30 pounds of 'obease' weight to get to a healthy average for my height, and I find it really hard to lose anything, a total of 5 pounds in about a month.

    Rob would you consider making a low carb version of this for an experimental test?

    I am really intrigued by your product, but I am also very skeptical. I fear mostly the long-term effects of this diet. I'm not a biochemist, and this is why I'd like to see actual experts review this drink. Could "Soylent" replace entirely (and without health risks) a balanced diet of natural food? Could it be only a good diet supplement?

    Are you thinking of getting this approved by the FDA? I am in the medical field and have been thinking about how I can help those in less developed countries, and feel like this is a great option. It'd be more sanitary, cheaper, lower in calories, and healthier (at least so far). And since you went without food for a month, and haven't shown much adverse effects, I feel like getting volunteers for the study wouldn't be too hard. 

  • Slammin’ Jammin’ James

    This is really cool, and I've often thought that in 100 years this is what we'll be doing for the majority of our intake.  It would certainly releive a lot of problems in our strained healthcare system.

    Anyways, I work in natural product chemistry and my concern is that you may be placing too much faith in science.  There are thousands and thousands of chemicals in our foods that we haven't identified and are quite likely essential to our health.  I think your recipe is a step in the right direction, but is probably missing a lot of helpful chemicals.  Have you thought about finding natural sources of these chemicals and just making a similar juice out of them?  I don't meen this as a "All-Natural-freak" comment but rather to get those unidentified chemicals we have yet to discover.

  • Daccota Lucca

    While this all looks pretty awesome, and I really really hope you're onto something, but I have some concerns as well, from an evolutionary and microbiom perspective.
    We're finding out more and more every day that our microbiome (you know, all the little guys inhabiting our gut and skin and crevices) is incredibly important in maintaining human health. We've co-evolved over centuries and longer with some of our bugs, with most people having roughly all the same species in our guts, regardless of geography, suggesting that they're pretty important. The gut microbiome thrives on the fact that…we eat food. So I'm wondering what's going to happen to yours now that you're taking a path never before seen in human evolutionary history. Especially considering how much the gut really does affect our health, even the vagus nerve, which travels all the way from the gut to the brain, plays a role in regulating emotion!

    Of course, just because we evolved to do something one way doesn't mean that there aren't BETTER ways, it just means that, usually, the old way works best. I do hope this works, but keep an eye on yourself in the long run, people frequently have positive responses to almost any dietary change in the early stages.

    This is fascinating. It's implications as a life-long food replacements might be a little more precarious, but as a method of breaking "food addiction" this is immediately useful. A Soylent-only diet for a few weeks to break hand-to-mouth habit and rid the body of the chemicals that come in highly processed garbage foods. Could be used thereafter as a regular meal replacement, the fixture in a diet also sprinkled with the occasional salad at home and meal out with friends. Soylent is food as fuel, and all dietary deviations from Soylent are treats. Simplicity is a beautiful thing! This really appeals to me! I'd love to contribute to the experiement and get my blood levels checked and all that!

    Just a thing to keep in mind: the food intake is just a part of the digestive sistem. There are toxins that need to be expeled and without a proper (I mean fiber and consistent) diet, your digestive track is only doing have of the job. I do like the idea of cheap and correct intake, but the system is more complex than that. In a couple of years with an atrophied stomach it may be too late to start thinking at the other implications.

  • Thompson

    I'm a trainee chef, and in what I can gather part of the minority of people for whom food; its science, its taste and its preparation, is a source of great joy and interest. I know it's possible to eat a reasonably balanced diet on a budget – but for me to do that is only because it's a source of interest and something I'm willing to devote time to. 

    I feel that until very recently people were a lot closer to the source of their food and it was imperative that a lot of thought went into what people eat. Although it's easy to buy pre-made food nowadays, in the past it wasn't so and disposable income per person was significantly smaller. I've found making a pact with yourself only to buy ingredients, on a low budget, quickly makes your diet a lot more balanced. It's the Western 'all cake and no compromise' attitude to food and many other things – because we demand to have unfettered access to what we're interested in without any obstructions – blinds us to the fact that food is essential, and it requires some care and attention to make it fitting source of nutrients and food.

    A cultural change in attitudes to food is possible if it were not for vested interests in the food industry that need to be eradicated. A great deal of the environmental damage caused by food comes from eating habits – meat that is not treated as a luxury, modern man's reluctance to be involved with his food allows unscrupulous companies to utulise high fructose corn syrup, soy lechitin and the like with impunity. These are measures to increase profit by marketing second rate goods to indifferent consumers. The effect of widespread use of this sort of nutrition would be to make this indifference absolute. While at present we are somewhere in between, a spread of this sort of consumption would eventually make the average person's position as a submissive consumer of food complete. The nutritional benefits might be wonderful, but in many ways this would be a cultural disaster and, in its own small way, dehumanising. 

    Of course, I'm just an arty, Guardian-reading foodie – I would say all this. I think this idea could teach me a lot, and I'll be trying it and participating in the study for posterity. I can see its applications for ending world hunger. But I think that, only if the Western world undergoes a coup by sociopathic, authoritarian technocrats (which, I fear, this generation might be capable of spawning), would this idea really catch on – and only by force or propaganda. People, for better or for worse, like food.

    The food industry of the world needs, and I feel fairly confident, eventually will be dismantled and rebuilt. Studies have repeatedly shown that buying your own ingredients and making your own food (and growing it, but that *really* is a bourgoisie luxury nowadays) makes a person eat less and better when they do. The reason this practice, which really is beyond no one, is niche is because the industry is adept at selling the idea that food is just another obstruction to accessing your real interests, so just buy it pre-made and get on with things. Even if you mostly cook for yourself, this idea is culturally ingrained to the point that people rarely sit down and consider their diet and buying habits. The facts that people like food, and a balanced diet is possible for anyone if the world's food culture and industry were better built, and the main obstruction to this is vested interests in industry, form a better starting point for change than the view that 'food's not working, let's get rid of food'. In part for the bourgeoisie art-of-living beliefs I have that most I imagine find tedious, but in part because people like food, we could all have good food and we all deserve it, and it seems like a solution that would be easier to get people on board with.

    I'm impressed that you would do this experiment. I find it interesting and somewhat informative. I'm sure some good things have come about as a result.

    It sounds so appealing, especiallly to me. Still I know better. There's so much I have to say. I'm sure I'll miss some; unless I want to write a 5 page paper.

    First of all, I think the best way to get our nourishment is from foods. It's more beneficial to our bodies, and to the earth and it's creatures. Every time man decides it can do better by cheating nature, it ends up being harmful in some way. Now it's necessary that people get additional nutrients from supplements. If people had never neglected nature, this would never have been necessary. We live in a different world now.

    I lived for a month on a medical food shake alone; and supplemented with it for years. I gave it up to avoid the risk of exposing myself to food sensitivities.

    You fail to give the exact source of each of these ingredients, and their forms. That is important. Food sensitivities can be an issue. Table salt contains aluminum. Do you really want that in your body? I would choose fermented cod liver oil and virgin coconut oil over olive oil any day. Personally, I value omega 3s in my diet. From my experience, magnesium glycinate is the most absorbable. Oligosaccarides can be harmful for those with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

    The tests you ordered were a good idea, but it seems you've neglected some other informative measurements. I be interested to know how your adrenals fared, what you body fat percentage was, and it's ratio to you muscle mass.

    You mention the social implications. I think food is a form of love; and love makes the world go around. So why deny food?

    Of course you felt better. You were eating refined foods and foods that are common food allergens/sensitivities; and you gave your body a break from that. I'm guessing that after several months or so, your body would have some difficulties. We can't know that because you've given up "soylent" as your only source of nourishment.

    By the way, I refuse to use the FDA as a trusted source of information considering they've been in the pockets of Big Pharma and Big Ag for years at the expense of the welfare of humanity.

    Glancing over some of these comments, I have to agree that microflora and sulfur and probably some other necessities for long-term health have been ignored in your formula.

    Keep your investigative spirit. Just be mindful of your influence of others.

    Interesting experiment, but a friendly piece of advice from a doctor and nutritionist specializing in lesions of the small intestine: You will develop food intolerance and food allergies, or a leaky gut syndrome. It's a matter of time, and the time it takes is not necessarily very long. Your body will react violently to the variety of proteins, fiber and trace elements in normal food once "dead" fluids are the norm. Be careful

      I ask because you sound like a naturopath or something along those lines…"leaky gut syndrome" is not a recognized medical diagnosis.

      He says he eats regular foods whenever he feels like it (a few times a week or more), so I doubt he's at risk, even if the conditions and outcomes you hypothesize actually exist.

    Hello,

        your situation is very interesting and I 100% believe in the effect you describe, but :

    it probably also comes from :
     

    Having almost given up bad diet (burgers etc)

    Not having to spend much energy digesting hard food.

    Doing a fun and public experimentation

    On the other side I have a few worries if your diet goes for too long, don't know how long (may be 3 months may be more) :

    Teeth and gums need to be exercised, otherwise like any other body part they get weaker and can get in serious trouble, for teeth we could have : lower tissue density, and sort of getting loose (the teeth adjust against each-others when under pressure).

    As an involuntary compensation bruxism during the night may appear.

    Because it's liquid it's likely to be digested very fast so a risk to have a high glycemic index with the classical inconvenient : possible dysbiosis etc.

    As it is probably sweet and so easy to drink, so the risk to snack 10 times a day instead of 3 meals, so it exposes teeth to a lot of acids so big risk of tooth decay.

    The stomach could become quite smaller (but it seems very flexible in the other direction).

    These last points look terrible, but I think it's not with may be 2 little tricks :

    chewing gums (the big problem is to find healthy ones (no sugar, no sweetener added, ideally slightly salty with a natural gum), probably no commercial gums are), so we can  chew other things, like some sort of woods

    http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Baton_de_reglisse.jpg (problem it's sweet again, but there are other, like some tribes used to chew some sort of wood to clean their teeth).

    more fibers to slow down digestion, so have a higher GI

    Best Greetings

      Also, I knew a lot of people with eating disorders growing up. This would probably help them reevaluate their relationship with food. It was easier for some of them to eat food that didn't "look" like food in the beginning to get them closer to a healthy weight.

    Just pointing out:

    – anecdotal self observation is not very scientific

    – cutting fat isn't the the *only* way to lose weight, cutting carbs instead is arguably much better

    – diabetics should not eating any carbs whatsoever – diabetes is not some elusive unsolved mystery. Excessive glucose causes insulin response, hence, restrict carbs completely and fat to a minimal level if you are diabetic.

    Rob, it's now more than 60 days since you began your no-eating experiment, but no report since Day 30. Are you still not eating? Are you sick? Are you still with us? How are you feeling now?
    I expect a liquid diet such as yours to have health effects that will take longer than 30 days to appear — and perhaps much longer — so it would be instructive to let us know how you're doing at the 60-day mark, and also at the 3-month and 1-year intervals.

    Two problems:

    No pooping = health problems due to organ inactivity

    No chewing = teeth problems due to no resistance

    Here goes all your food savings to the dentist, or maybe you can walk around without teeth as you only drink shakes and code/blog on the computer.

    Other than that, I think you're onto something!!!

    Especially if you order all your supplements in bulk from the manufacturer, cost goes down to nada!

    P.S – it would be also cool if you come up with solution to the extremely expensive housing costs and come up with a practical thing that doesn't enslave us for our entire life to pay out mortgage.

    This is awesome and exciting! I've always found eating to be a chore (nevermind the preparation and cleanup); those of us who "eat to live" get what you're trying to achieve.

    Ignore the haters…humans can safely go 15+ days eating nothing so what you're consuming is unlikely to harm you.

    One thing that comes to mind: you say you rarely eliminate since you aren't consuming much waste. On the one hand this is convenient and indicative of not intaking anything you don't need for food. But on the other hand: your eliminative components are designed to be used regularly, and thus it's possible that under-utilization could become detrimental over time (in the "use it or lose it" sense).

    I have no idea how that could be researched…maybe with patients who have been on long-term total parenteral nutrition (TPN)? You probably know this: TPN is similar in theory to what you're trying to do, though it's delivered intravenously.

    I may sign up as a tester, but I may just try to make this myself; I feel like your instructions are clear enough. Thanks for doing this and good luck!

    Hi there,

    I read your article and it really seems to struck me. I'm really into health and nutrition, and I do agree that as long as we achieve our daily macronutrients and micronutrients, we're fine. What really caught my eye is how you got rid of your keratosis pilaris. I have the same thing since i was 12 (i'm 21 this year) and it doesn't seem to go away. Its annoying me. I've tried so many things and it never seem to work. =/

     I workout as well. In regards to the macronutrients, how do i alter it if i were to consume soylent? I know i need 150g protein, 40-50g fat and 200g carbs, maybe more for carbs on some days when i lift heavy. I am really into health, and would definitely love to get rid of my skin disease at the same time. 

     

    I really look forward to your reply!

  • Iftah

    Impressive job doing the research, and having the courage and discipline to do it yourself. Kudos.

    I haven't read all the millions of comments above, so I may be repeating others… sorry if so.

    There are already "full nutrition balanced meal" in a drink products out there – usually given to sick people who have tough time keeping food down,  for example abbott's "ensure" drinks:  http://www.abbottstore.com/search?q=ensure&categoryPathRefs=shop&source=enshp

    I wonder how they compare to yours…

    That's a very intelligent idea. I sometimes like to cook and eat healthily. I like eating and enjoying my food… But no matter how well-organized I am, there's always that day when you're exhausted and you wish you had something quick and ready. I've managed to make a few interesting quickies. But then again, as you say, it's a lot of time.

    Everything that you've written and studies seems very logical and useful. One thing worries me: your digestive tract, teeth and jaw. A month probably won't make much of a difference, but you could suffer athrophy in the long term. If you let me try, I would eat sugarless chewing gum. Now you're going to eat whole foods occasionally, but, did you exercise your chewing muscles and bones during the first month? If you find it harder to chew or swallow when you get back to solid food, please do report.

    Interesting experiment. Good work.

    Exercise was mentioned a couple of times in the post and comments, but not to the extent I'd like to see it addressed. In drastically increasing your weekly running mileage the first week you began the diet, you added another variable to the experiment—which means that the results cannot be cleanly attributed to the change in diet. (By the by, be careful of injury when increasing your mileage more than 10% a week.) 

    Exercise is obviously beneficial to the human body, but to truly measure the effect of the diet itself, uncoupled from exercise, you would need three groups: a control group, a group just eating Soylent and not exercising, and a group eating Soylent and exercising. Pair up with a unversity; I believe this data would be very valuable.

    I feel sorry for you. Im Italian and life is not all about nutrition but chemicals, but its aslso about pleasure. We Italians that we are if not the best but one of the best food in the world, we are also the less obese country in the world, contrary of US where you have the record of them, despite all your techonology. Food is not just nutrition my friend. but its a pleasure, the odors, the vision, the taste,  but moreover the plasure to gather all your family, or friends, around the table and have a great dinner with a nice glass of Chianti wine. This ar the pleasure thing in life, in fact, we italian we are not depressed, we enjoy life and we do not need therapy. However what do you know, when you Americans, get your food from the drive thru and you eat on your SUV on the way home, or in front of a TV with your Dominos pizza in the good days. Maybe if you had a gf or you learn how to enjoy life a bit more, you won't need that stuff but you may learn the pleasure of a good food and good living.

      He never said he disliked food. He wants something to eat that's quick and easy so that when it comes time to have "real" food, he can really spend a lot of time, energy, and money to make it something really amazing. Not everyone has time, energy, and money, to cook healthy and delicious meals.

  • Nuria

    Yes, this is all great, but, what about the pleasure of eating food that you like? I looong all day for eating hours, I wake up and I'm already thinking of what a delicious breakfast I am going to have, and same for lunch, dinner and snacks. And whenever I dine out, which is usually once a week, I want to eat something really tasty.

    Not everybody enjoys food the same way, there's people who just eats to live, and you sounf like it. But I live to eat (no obsessions though). And what about the haedonic part of hunger? Last year I was dieting, and on a period of time I was just taking meat, which I don't really like. I ate a lot of meat, and was still hungry. My nutricionist told me that this was because I satisfied my nutritious hunger but not my haedonic hunger, that is to say, my taste wasn't satisfied. So until I moved to another week of the diet, when I could eat aaaaall the fruits and veggies I wanted, I didn't feel full.

    Then, I wonder if I could ever feel full and satisfied with Soylent, when it probably just tastes like carbohidrates, when what makes my taste satisfied are vegetables and fruits, mostly….

    I have to agree with epicurus, encouraging others to join in your experiment seems a little irresponsible especially as qualified dieticians/people have said this lack of food can lead to weakening of the digestive organs, IBS and leeky gut syndrome. All of which can be devastating!

    At least suggest eating some low calorie fibrous foods (broccoli etc) to keep your digestive tract moving. boiling vegetables takes no more than 3/4 minutes and i think could prove to be very beneficial.

    Also research curcumin ;)

      Get over your fear, a lot of people rely on their idea that they are weak or just born that way. I tend to disagree your aversion for food came from something and you need to bite the bullet and face your fear in the face. It's not until we think we're gonna die that we truly learn to live (in my case anyway). You don't have to start with food but, find something you're scared of and go do that first, if it's spiders go hold a tarantula, if it's heights go dive off the high dive. It will change your life and I can promise you that. Then learn to eat (don't learn to eat fast food though, that shit is gross)

    The idea of one cure all that works for everyone sounds phenomenal! But, as it sounds like you've discovered, people are very different in their individual needs and what makes them feel good. I just want to offer a suggestion on how to combat this. Not knowing how the ingredients are mixed together, I'm curious of it is possible to mix up different bases that consist of the very basic dietary needs everyone has but vary the macros. Then, mix up several different "additives" that complete the formula for different needs. For example, the bases are all the same but labeled by their individual percentage distribution of macros, carbs/protein/fat, 50/30/20, 40/40/20, 50/20/3, etc. personally, I vary these values in my personal diet on a daily basis depending in my activity. Further, the additives can be labeled in such ways as female aged 20-30, female aged 30-40, male aged…. Etc. you may be a ways off of this as far as production is concerned but it may be helpful to keep in mind while conducting trials.

I am with you on the subject of time being wasted on the consumption of food, plus it's not that easy to have a well balanced meal every single time.

    Almost everything known about dietary requirements is based on difficult studies in which some component is removed. These studies are tough in rats, and very difficult indeed with human subjects. For an adult to do what you're doing for a month might be entertaining. Indeed there might be health benefits, but for anyone to keep eating (drinking?) the same marginally-documented brew daily for years would be foolish, and to suggest that others do so (in the absence of compelling evidence for safety) is poor judgment. You simply don't know whether there may be trace factors in your brew that will be cumulatively toxic, nor whether there may be dietary components missing in the diet, which you will require over the long run.

    This is called a SUPPLEMENT. Not a safe, effective supplelment but, a supplement.  There is no substitute for real, whole foods which our bodies require.  This will lead to illness or mal-nutrition.  This is similar to having a feeding tube which is not sufficient for everyday, active life.  I'm truly amazed at how many people are willing to be led by a young kid who has no real knowledge, trainging or idea of the importance of real food and real calories.   And all the people who have serious health issues who are asking this guy, Rob Rhinehart, for advice or help…please don't put your faith in his "invention".  This is truly dangerous.  (and for all of the other ignorant people here:  a naturopath is a doctor, trained and licensed.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/awesomelightning?feature=mhee ASHPoD69

    What an interesting concept. I find it fascinating, and it's a huge leap in science. What I think is that, just like in Wall-E, that Soylent comes flavored. This way we wouldn't get bored of it. For instance, a few drops of menthol for a mint flavor. Now here's my only concern. If this does get mass produced, conspiracies may not be so far-fetched. It wouldn't be too hard to add chemicals into the mixture to dampen intelligence, and therefore create a more obedient society. I'm not saying that it's going to happen or will ever happen, I'm saying that it's easier to do, as the results will be en masse and not localized. Another thing I'd like to point out is that, what if one gets the mix wrong? For instance, particular chemicals are very lethal when overdosed by just a few micrograms, such as Vitamin D and A. If one's scale were to be off, or one adds more due to human error, results could be potentially disasterous. Also, how would you prevent the mix from traveling through your system as fast as  liquids normally travel? I feel as if, while a breakthrough in science, it shouldn't be a substitute for food. It's a highly interesting concept, and my inner urge since childhood to be a test subject or lab rat makes me want to try it for science. However, I think that in a practical application, Soylent should be used when needed, and not replacing food. I can very much see it being extremely beneficial to society, reducing the need for agricultural space, etc. which takes up a huge amount of land to sustain the human population. With your product, I do imagine a future where hunger is near eliminated, and land space can be used for other purposes. Still, while economically and medically beneficial, I find the idea disconcerting. I feel as if it's going to be one of those ideas that will further science to a whole new level, and appear to make life easier, but then again, so did a lot of things in science fiction movies and novels, and then they ended up failing, killing humanity, or causing some massive problem. And the more and more I learn about this, the more and more it seems like one of them was brought to life. Still, if I wasn't 15 and broke, I'd do this experiment, for science. Because that's what I live for. To further science. And I'd love to be the beta tester.

    While I think the implications here are for a good cause, I would be very curious to see what happens 6 months down the road. The chilliness and slight gain after a month is indicative of a lowered metabolism, much like a starvation response. I know I can't 'warn' anyone off of anything, but inside I'm pleading for this to stop. Naturally you can run a lot more if you're running off of stress hormones (and adrenals are burning hard, engaging your body to 'findfoodfast'). I felt really great when I 'dieted down' and would consequently have to burn faster harder to continue to 'feel great'. My life crashed 10 years later; my body gave up after caloric restriction, despite all the 'nutritious food' I no longer had the energy to assimilate. Perhaps in supplement form you may get all you need,  but what prompted me to write anything is the physical trends you are describing: alertness, fast increasing mileage, feeling cold, and a little weight gain/water retention (either are indicative of stress). I am not intending to aggressively attack this method, as I understand it is quite convenient for your lifestyle; I truly hope this only brings good things. But I really worry about bringing this to the limelight for young women/men who are considering the weightloss bandwagon because they have an aesthetic ideal, or twisted relationships with food and just want to eliminate it, rather than learn to love/appreciate it.

      There are some basics that are pretty well established and yes, some things shifted or get added over time but that's how the USRDA values were created; good, bad or who cares.

      I did something similar over the years but I used OTC healthfood store items that produced a vegan "Meal" that used canola oil for the essential fatty acids, a vegetable based protein powder for the essential amino acids, soluble fiber for a little bulk and coconut milk as a carrier (I could drop the coconut milk and reduce the calories by 360 and the cost by $1 but this was not very palatable).  It tasted great to me at 500 calories per meal at a cost of $2.29 a meal (This left room for healthy fruits and vegetables).  I added a good quality vitamin/mineral supplement to cover the other USRDA points and it seems to work quite well.

      I like the concept of being able to simplify this even further using Rob's soylent since I cheated by using biomatter and I'm very curious how he keeps the cost so low. USP grade chemicals aren't cheap.

    What about the psychological implications? Eating a decent range of tasty and nutritious food is essential for good mental health.

     How about your social life? Do you do to partys or meals out with others? 

    I think living of supplements can put you at high risk of an eating disorder, especially if your energy intake is too low. Anorexia nervosa doesn't only affect teenage girls,.I'm a 31 year old straight man and I've suffered from anorexia for a couple of years and it's difficult to get out of – this is my second recovery attempt!

  • Ryan

    I am very interested to see how this works out for you in the long term. Once you establish a good baseline formula, it can be tweaked on an individual basis for various applications. As you say, there are a great many people who are pressed for time who make terrible nutritional choices, and this would be a good way to ensure a decent baseline in the morning, when most are rushing to work or school. 

     

    I have had to laugh at a lot of the shrill commentary, but it doesn't surprise me, as adherents to whatever nutritional regimen seem to become highly emotionally invested. I appreciate that you are trying to approach this in a scientific manner, having admitted that you are not an expert in the field. On the other hand, Gary Taubes has written extensively on the myriad bad science in the field, so large grains of salt are needed when approaching the advice of any so called expert. 

     

    I look forward to more results and I have signed up to recieve updates. 

     

    Good Luck Rob.

  • Rachel

    I have these health problems that cause me occasionally go on to a liquid diet. During which I drink 6 pediasures a day. I shall keep this in mind for the next time a flare up occures seeing as how a handmade mixture may be more beneficial for me. However the only thing I find of great concern is your lack of excriment. Part of my problem is my digestive track basically shuts down and gets backed up occasionally. This is primarily due to a trigger such as not drinking enough water or consuming too much sugar which dries out the colon and backs that up then backs everything up to the stomach and stops moving. I wonder if there was a way to make a mixture that was high in fiber. I would definatly go on this diet if it ment I wouldn't have to worry about my health problems the rest of my life, but I am watchfull now as to how it will effect your digestive track in the long run.

  • Mike

    I struggle with food in so many different ways, the guilt of being full when you know others are going to sleep and wakening up hungry, the waste with commercial food manufacturing, the idea of good food and bad food…any new concept based around food, and more importantly a source of nutrition for the masses is worth looking at with an open mind. Thanks for looking Rob, I hope that you, and others like yourself can find a new healthy affordable waste free approach to… food.

    Both a workmate and myself have been reducing the amount of food we are eating for the last two weeks and minimalising everything by over half. As you mentioned in your post, that the key is balance. Like when you had this issue of missing (iron) Hemoglobin.

    I also want to know, do we really need all that extra sugar and total crap in our diets? I know that over the years we are simply creating a world of unfit human beings, and realistically takeaways and the sort, have only been operating for the last 100 years and look how fat society is.

    Look at some of the old movies from say 50's – 60's for example "King of Kings". There is no man or woman that is obese like there is today and honeslty, I think we can blame our fast pace life and market to capitalise on that which McDonals, Burger King etc has done.

     

    Anyway, fantastic read and will definately now try modify my diet for testing like yourself has done. Cheers.

      ” also want to know, do we really need all that extra sugar and total crap in our diets?”
      Sugar = energy. The only other source of energy is fat that is turned into ketones.

      Are you serious… obviously the solution would be to stop eating like there’s no tomorrow.

      Don’t drink soda or anything other than water. When you go to the store to buy food, buy only meat, vegetables, and fruit.
      Or you could try their more risky soylent product.

    I am doing some research for alternative pain relief. After reading this book, which you might find of interest, I wanted to find out what the human body needs in order to survive if some people can live of "source" light for 12 years or longer. Michael Werner a German scientist stopped eating in 2001 and is fit and healthy.  http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=mtDkruwUoYgC&pg=PA15&lpg=PA15&dq=michael+werner+scientist&source=bl&ots=wMAI6S3MMH&sig=e4ia76do6HDVtU440bwTpZrFee8&hl=en&sa=X&ei=1wmnUbP7Cozy0gXJ7YDYDA&ved=0CFUQ6AEwBg

    However there is a much deeper connection to this process and not everyone is able to do it.

    Did you have any pains or aches before you started this and how does it compare now?

    I love this! Often, I don't have any preference on what I want to eat, but don't want to starve my body. Once I start consuming soylent, I will send you a detailed copy of my "report" on it! But don't expect anything sooner than 8 months from now…

    You made several good points there. I did a search on the topic and found mainly people will agree with your blog.

  • Olivia

    Hi! This concept is truly amazing as it is what I am trying to acheive in my "raw food diet." I believe in balance… so I'm not too sure if this raw food diet is what is truly OPTIMAL for health. It is also expensive! What I mean by I believe in balance is that a raw food diet, in a sense, could be considered an extreme where it is not balanced with a share of cooked foods.. And even though I've been "reasearching" it for over a year, I'm still unsure about so much involved in the health department. Like my theory about the balance of raw foods and cooked foods, maybe we really aren't supposed to eat any cooked foods and rather find a balance between the  raw foods themselves rather than a balance composed of raw foods and cooked foods. I'm hoping someone with more experience will respond to this! haha. I've only been on a raw food diet for about 3 months and I keep wanting to take it to the next level asking myself, besides eating an a vareity of nutrient dense raw foods, how can I consume the essential vitamins and minerals in their purest form? Reading a lot of the comments, it seems there is an argument about where these minerals and vitamins are derrived from, and although many say it doesn't matter where they are derrived from, I would still feel safer knowing that they were derrived from a natural source. You mentioned that the "soylent" drink is free of toxins and carcinogens but on occasion you go out with friends and socialize over drinks and occasionally drink coffee… how would that work? As one commenter mentioned, maybe you reaped the benefits of a detox diet becuase you were eating a pretty standard diet to begin with. Maybe I'm wrong. I wish there was more info about this though, any other links/articles/studies done on something like this? I want to give it a try for sure, kind of reminds me of juicing or fasting but there is no lack of nutrients. I think I might just continue my raw diet since I've started it and don't know enough yet to make any changes for fear I might make a wrong one! Also becuase I am truly just waiting for august when the concord grapes come in because I think they are hands down my favorite gift from mother nature EVER! Hahahaha. Also if anyone chooses to respond, I'm only 17, don't know if I'm still "growing" but does anyone think for a young age that "soylent" would be okay for me? Awesome post Rob!

    My question would be about the digestive tract?  Wouldn't you need to actually process solid food on occassion to keep it from shutting down or atrophying or something?  

    • Ryan Friend

      Muscles atrophy, not organs. They are just not the same stuff. But I have no idea if you actually need food other than to keep the bacteria healthy. I see it like this: People will eat regular food sometimes. Even Rob eats two regular meals per week after being on his diet for over a year. That is probably enough. But no one really knows. This hasn’t really been done before like this. People in comas have survived on liquid diets without normal defecatory processes for decades. But these are not normal circumstances, obviously. And they DID atrophy. But then they were laying in bed with only bedside physical therapy for years. This is still an experiment. Only now there are tens of thousands of us. If you don’t want to risk it: wait. If not, buy some. I plan on taking it slowly when my batch arrives.

    Wow, keep it up and there are so many more expenses that you needn't worry about in terms of finance, energy, etc. And you are keeping how much of America from making a living on that ill gotten gain of the social 'enigma' eating?  You are saving them from themselves! Yes.  You will no longer need to use organs for the purpose for which they were made, genetically engineered nonetheless, so probably totally irrelevant to this breakthrough and how utterly conformist. And yet, we can also arrive at the wisdom of why do anything as the majority of anything we do is merely of value that society places on it.  So, with 'empowerment' in mind, this can alleviate that, and we shall be wise as we have sidestepped the very things that cause value to life.  You're truly a wizard!  I wish you well.  All too often in this life, I have tried experiments (usually owing to lack of personal finance, or surgery recuperation) where no solid food (mind you no alcohol in these instances) was ingested at all.  I have no wish to repeat this, as the last time left me with three days to recuperate from such mild hypochondriac symptoms such as standing without wobbling, the ground in digitized vision-coming up to meet me, or perhaps blacking out at the front door dropping to my knees.  But hey, it's worth a shot when it's just for grins…?  Should that be a double..like a cg especial?

  • Chadwick Crawford

    Everyone else seems to be hung up on the health implications, but what about the cultural? You are performing this experiment to explore what it might mean to be post food. I would posit that food, its preparations and consumption, are all fundamental aspects of culture and civilization. By all means, eat your glop if that is what pleases you, but by attacking this problem from solely a standpoint of resource consumption, you are ignoring a massive complex of interlocking factors that make food central to the lives of billions of people (apparently excepting you).

    Eating is just so annoying, expensive, complicated, and time-consuming. Not only does it interest me to be rid of this habit, but it would be greatly beneficial to me as a college student. If this soylent lifestyle catches on for me, I can save my much-needed money. Also, I'll no longer have to decide between using my 30 minutes between classes to eat or print out a 12 page essay. I very much look forward to the potential this lifestyle has, assuming it is as delicious, healthy, and satisfying as the claims made.

    • AJ doesn’t think

      Goddamn, people like you who comment with this stupid presupposition
      that this is going to replace food for EVERYONE, are pretty damn stupid.
      No one’s making ANYONE do this. Shut up with the asinine statements.
      It’s there for those who are willing to try, and NOT REQUIRED FOR THOSE
      WHO AREN’T.

      Jesus fucking christ. So many people are saying
      “OHHHH BUT HOMECOOKED FOOD, PLEASURE OF EATING, TEXTURES, TASTES,
      LIVING, ETC.” HOLY SHIT! ARE YOU SERIOUS? Stop thinking your paradigm
      for life is interchangeable with everybody elses. Because it’s not. If
      someone wants to try it, it’s not the end of your personal pleasures,
      you dense idiot. This is one man’s choice, and if all the things that
      appeal to you about food, don’t to him, THEN IT MEANS NOTHING! IT MEANS
      NOTHING WORTH THIS INCREDIBLE FAILURE OF THEORY OF MIND! It’s not sad.
      Not by a damn sight. This clearly isn’t this horrible “freedom from all
      things good in life” that you perceive it to be, to him. You’re going
      off the deep end with 100% NON-SEQUITUR IRRATIONALITY. God, berks like
      you are unbearable.

      NOW, if you had legitimate logical or
      scientific reasons for taking issue with this, then by all means, but
      your comment is neither, nor are the hundreds of similar posted. Purely
      emotional, and grossly irrational, to put the cherry on top. Did you
      think humanity had signed a contract with satan in their own blood when
      you started reading this?

      NEWSFLASH: Satan is in the mind, and he did quite a number on yours, apparently.

        Thank you for your candor. So many, in my opinion, are brainwashed into accepting only what they have been taught growing up and/or what is most socially acceptable. These people readily ‘swallow’ without question what a study concludes and what is popular in the latest issue of whatever magazine or tv show they like. I for one am glad to have found this article a few minutes ago!! I will probably try it after he has at least a year of data, and a recipe to print out, lol! However, in my opinion again, we are all different and therefore should be free to choose the path that is best for us. I think all should be allowed their opinions but not to the degree that they are passing judgement on someone for their choice. To each their own!!

    I love this idea and have done this on a mini scale since being a starving student by subsisting on a few foods that contained what I though would fill nutritional requirements. Do you have a vegan version? You could use almonds to replace the protein, fat and carbohydrate. It would be great for traveling. Have you checked the pH of your urine after eating. To be healthy, it should stay alkaline. Is NASA interested?

I am willing to pay you, track my progress, etc. You just tell me what you would need/want me to do and how much you would charge. I assure you that I am not looking for a cheap and fast fix. This product has some serious value to me in several different aspects of my life. It would make my year, not just my day, if you said yes! Thank you for your time and consideration to this important matter!

  • Heather

    Doctor- a person with a phd. No phd, not a doctor.

    This would totally work but it looks like way to much trouble to go to when all this stuff already comes precombined in food.

    And, let me welcome you to the world of anorexia. There is a reason we don't eat. Not eating food makes you feel fantastic. I think a lot of that has to do with the lack of toxins. If you look up PKU there are companies that make an all amino acid, minus phenethylamine, powder. It would take some of the measuring and guess work out of this. One major problem I am seeing, when you don't chew, your teeth get loose. Chewing also exercises the muscles in your face so without doing it, you will notice some loss of tone. I do see an odvious market for this as a product though.

  • Heather

    I felt it was necessary to add that, you can't take all of these things at one time. TRhat;s why there are morning pills, afternoon pills and evening pills. Like when you take in calicum at the same time you take in iron, they bind to each other and the molecule becomes to large to pass through the blood barrier so you pass them. And you have to take in calicum and magesuim at the same time in even amounts or you pass the excess. So if you took all 3 at once, you wouldn't absourb any of the 3. And that is just the easy example that everyone knows. There are plenty more considerations like that. All the components could not be ingested at one time. And really the only 2 I can think of that if you recieved absolutely none of would that make you sick fast enough to be nocticable is sodium and pottasium. A few months of not getting the others isn't something that would really bother you. And certainly not in only 30 days.

    • Ryan Friend

      This is an interesting, but exaggerated problem. The fact is, Cook et al (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1984334) did not find iron inhibition when taking calcium carbonate (the form used in Soylent) when taken without food. I don’t know if Soylent is considered a food by these guys. It is to me. So, let’s say it is. Well, then the reduction of absorption is only 15% or so. That means that you would have a 15% deficiency of iron. Only… people don’t get enough iron as it is, so 85% would be an improvement. That is, if Rob hadn’t thought of this. It seems that he has. He actually calculated the bioavailability of the calcium in calcium carbonate. He put in (I think) 1500mg, which is way more than you need. And you will get 120% of your iron if you use Soylent. So, yes these things seem to be accounted for. I would be interested in learning more about it, but your claim is invalid.

    Just eat
    Stop normalizing anorexia

    • Emma Frank

      Soylent is not anorexia. Soylent is a delicious and healthy food alternative that provides you with nutrients and food to let you survive healthily and happily on just Soylent. It is true, you do not need to eat if you live off of Soylent, but that doesn’t make it anorexia. It just makes food unnecessary.

      • Miriam Von Brait

        “but that doesn’t make it anorexia. It just makes food unnecessary”I try my best to be well mannered but sometimes stupidity just annoys me , expecially when they influence others .

        • NotAlice

          Kindly refrain from making comments on topics which you evidently know nothing about. More so than abstaining from food, anorexia is to desist from calories, or at least ingest as few as possible, and probably do enough exercise to burn a lot more than just those few off. Soylent still contains calories. If you’re going to be pompous, at least have the decency to educate yourself.

    • TheBuxtaHuda

      “Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder that makes people lose more weight than is considered healthy for… their age and height. Persons with this disorder may have an intense fear of weight gain, even when they are underweight. They may diet or exercise too much or use other ways to lose weight.”

      Simply not eating solid food does not make one anorexic: a crippling mental illness which leads to malnutrition does.

      Stop normalizing stupidity.

      However, something I have not seen discussed is the fact that the body absorbs larger particles more quickly from solid food than from liquid. An all-liquid diet in mice was seen to increase the chance of liver and gallbladder complications. Mentioned issues I can see being plausible would include the continued health of your internal bacteria, the possible affects of discontinuing/greatly diminishing the use of your lower intestines, and the particular supplements being used and their sources.

      There are reasons beyond corporations’ greed that we have not been living solely on liquid/supplemental diets for the last 60 years already.

    I only just stumbled accross this soylent stuff. I was just planning out how i was going to survive bulimia because i naturally vomit if i eat anyway so i started making my bulimia diary. My first thought was why dont i just get every nutrient and vitamin my body need to thrive and out it all together in one drink.. I decided to look that up on google and look what ive stumbled accross. At least I know now that it works,

    Problem is, im a 16 year old girl who live with a step parent and father and no source of income. Its going to be difficult for me to get everything i need without looking suss. Perhaps its something i'll do when im older. Im going to give bulimia a go and regulate is with my diary. I have strong will powers and can defeat temptations easily. I wont become addicted. Soylent will be my saviour if I do though and it will be the first thing i turn to!

I have been a B/P anorexic for a long long time and i wouldnt wish an eating disorder on anyone. it isnt a question of becoming addicted, because it isnt a substance. SHE (as we like to say) will control you and you will be subject to the thoughts of purging and where the closest bathroom is and how much money you are spending on food all the time. eventually you might die from the complications of it as 15-24% die from their ED. please hear me out. dont become a statistic. i just got out of the psych for this stuff. dont join the ‘dark side’ because there is no going back. that, is me at a bmi of 16.8 and that isnt even my lowest. dont become like me.

    That's not true have you heard of supply and demand. As soon as the demand for these vitians and plants increase the prices will go threw the roof so you $50/month will turn back into $600/month. In a perfect world if this worked so many people would be out of jobs and will have to give up their homes and land because soon the government will want to make plant factories and the clean healthy plants will have dirty chemicals in them because the government will poison it people will still think that they are loosing weight but in the long run this will ruin one to many lives just because everyone is so concered on how they look i no obesity is crazy in america but thats called lazyness and no motivation what makes you think that over weight people will loose that craving for a big mac or fremch fries. Theres so much out there for them to help them change their life style, they say they will change but they are to lazy and just want something easy and good. It to good to be true. But really happy that your happy you have made your life easier for you and healthier you should really be proud of that, I do agree though for diebetics and people who are have seveir allergies this will most deffently be very helpful. They don't have to drop eating normal good but this will most deffently make them feel fuller and energetic and for diebetics this might save lives if it works as well as you have said it does. If everything that I have read and you have tested if it all works then yes lives will be saved and healthier but I don't think that real good will be pushed out of our culture like come on who doesn't like food and if let's say in 50 years or so an this hose big and fair the only businesses that will me open would be clothing stored and like pet stores more then 50% of America is a food business from a Bostin Pizza to a Tim Hortons every half block, we will have more people unemployed what do people who have no house no job no money comig in it leads to more drugs more fighting more violence because they are bored with their time. I ffor one love the textures of food but a very picky eater so I think if I have this in the mornings as a breakfast alternative but then have the real stuff for dinner would change me health and how I feel obviously not as fast as you did because you took food out which is crazy I couldn't do it.  People  don't shoot this discovery down till have tried it and have evedince that proves him wrong I haven't tried it and I'm courios to see if it works if not then hey we tried it and just when you do test it out maybe just let your doctor know that you want to try this diet and have regular check ups just in case make sure every thing is as at the right level if you are going to try it out please please ease be safe about it and make sure if Nything changes and you aren't comfortable or don't no I it normal get it checked out it doesn't hurt to ask. 

  • Bon

    And also I read from another comment she has a good point now we are going to try and push the food businesses out to save the world from obesity. Now lets say your pregnant or you are best feeding is there a possible way to make it so that the mother and the child are bother getting what they get. Baby’s some need formula and baby food there’s no way a baby will be a healthy chubby baby on this, then what about toddlers then elementary kids and then junior high kids and high school kids they all are at different levels of growing and activity and mobility skills that is there a way that it will be a positive out come for them ass well, kids bones are weak and still haven’t grown and developed like a teenager has and a teenagers body hasn’t grown and developed like a full adults then you have to look at seniors, what about sick kids who can’t ever get the right nutrients as it is with real food because they are so sick and old sick people. It’s a really good idea and start but there has to be an expansion to how you are reaching out to, so that you can help them be healthier because kids we can steer in a different direction still they will adapt easier to change in diet then lets say someone like me, I have lived and unfortunately gotten used to the calling for delivery pizza and going to run and get chips instead of let’s say having a carrot or a yogurt and fruit. I’m not disagreeing with this idea I thing it awesome but I think we are reaching out to the wrong group of people, we need to reach out to the kids because there are so much bullying going on now these days and suicides because they aren’t “perfect” in other people’s eyes but its not their fault it’s outs who have taught kids that easier and quicker is better, There is so much more over weight kids then there are average healthy kids, we need to start with them they are the future, we are relying on them to keep this world going but how can they when video games and other electronics get in the way and the media brain washes them that skinny is pretty and if your not a particular size then your not perfect and that laziness is alright because now these days he don’t even have to run to the bank anymore to put a check into our accounts and more and more people are working at home so they don’t even get out. Sorry I know I’m just going on and on this idea is so exciting I can see it growing just think that we should change from consumers that are in their 40’s who have been in this life style their whole life because there is a less likely chance that they will change for the better because like I have said there is stuff out there before this came out that can help them become healthier but people want it now, when they want something to happen it has to be on their watch or they just give up because the 20 pounds they lost wasn’t good enough because they can’t see a physical change they don’t look at the is their blood pressure levels and that they are able to go from point A to point B faster and easier and that they aren’t out of breath going up stairs because the physical changes happen last it’s all the body parts inside that benefit and change first and we as humans get selfish and lazy because nothing looks different from 4 weeks a ago. We need to look at more ways to help kids eat easier, and if this shake is tested different and are programmed for growing kids then that’s when you have to look at flavouring it too because there’s no way in hell that a kid will eat the same thing everyday twice a day, in fact I think it would have to be twicked so that instead of only eating twice a day they can eat 3 times a day so that they are still programmed when breakfast lunch and dinner is! Sorry I’m done now I just can’t wait to try it and I know if this works and isn’t just a big dream that we are living in will help people who can’t eat the foods they need to and have to sit somewhere else so that they don’t get an allergic reaction and have to buy “special” food that coast a tummy turning price they will be able to eat like everyone else I think in schools and day cares that, this will be big because I work at a day care and we have a little girl who has to sit by her self at a table away from everyone else because she is allergic to more food products then she is able to have. I think if this is properly sold and produced we can help so many people who live in 3rd world counties because it will be a cheaper smaller product that will help first feed so much more people and have healthier kids grow up strong so that like I said out world will have smart educated healthy people running it. And you never know those 3rd world country’s might have most of the pants there all we would have to do is supply the protein vitamins and whatever else so that’s easier and quicker, we are trying to make our would an easier more efficient place to live in well there’s a healthy way to. But also keep in mind if we all turn to this drink and there are not good stores in 50-100years from now we need to find other ways people can do with their lives because more then 50% of our state will be unemployed poor and homeless because it you look at it, it’s not just food businesses shutting down it appliance companies because we don’t have to cook anything or bake anything we don’t need refrigerators anymore because what do we need them for, people could change their kitchen as a place to grow the plants they need so that we can save the coast of the supply because the demand will be so high because that’s all people need to live off of and like I have said it will be easier and more efficient too, I no I may sound like I am contradicting my last comment but it this was a perfect world and this was planned out by the right people and not rushed just so the government can make money we could make it so that people don’t have to end up on the streets because they can make their own crops and sell them at markets we wouldn’t need half the business people we have working out there right now because if this goes big then we would do the old fashion trading and selling and farming and less big factories who is tinned by the government and if we have that then God knows what is being put in the plants and the water to feed the plants wit it’s like when they started feeding chickens corn so that they will be bigger so that means more money I think we should all look at this and try it out if you take into consideration of what I have just said our world will have less pollution people who aren’t sitting at home eating and watching tv because they will be eating something that is good for them that will give them that motivation and drive that will get them out of the house and do things and I goig this will end world poverty because food for other countries are so expensive to them complained to us put all of these third world countries have lives there life farming and being hard workers and putting everything they got to make sure that is done to the fullest and to the best of their ability and i think that we will give them opportunities to work and make money for what they have been doing for free just so that they can have a teaspoon of rice or a pease of a vegetable that they have to share with 9other people, and show us and teach us and share to us their passion and gratefulness they have to everything and I think that will lead to a peaceful happy healthy world, because we wont have that jealousy that some countries have because we have made it an easy cheap
    Way to feed the hungry a healthy way we don’t have to worry about them not because able to cook because they don’t have the tools or knowledge that we do to use it or make things because we all will have one thing in life that everyone wants that they couldn’t have fun actually or ha that motivation or the appliances everyone will be eating and not hanging to worry about hunger we will solve world hunger I know we will we can’t please everyone but if we all do out best and don’t give someone else something that they can bitch at then they can’t start a fight.

    I guess the first few months will be fine, but after a while the problems will begin. Some of the problems/conditions you should experience may, but not be limited to, include:
    1. Loss of tooth power – your mandible will weaken and your teeth will become sensitive from lack of chewing
    2. Stomach problems – sensitivity to solid foods, if you ever travel and need to ingest solid foods
    3. Digestion disorders
    4. Facial muscle loss & weakness thereby
    and many others.
    Just saying you should consider all aspects of eating, not only nutrition.

      The tooth and muscle issues will not be a problem if you chew chews, i.e. gum, tobacco(don’t recomend it,) toffy, taffy, and the like, which can be found in healthy forms (asside from Tobacco.) The digestive/stomach issuse, you should have a doctor fallow closley, aside from all that, I don’t think there will be much problem, like they said in the artical it’s a choice, you don’t have to, if you don’t want too.

      • ryanemitchell

        You realize that the “chewing” in chewing tobacco is a misnomer, right? Do you actually blow during blow jobs?

      You forgot about a bones – there are many possible complications after that kind of “a diet”. It’s not sounds good for me.

      • Clifford Mary

        My name is CLIFFORD MARY from USA .I am here to give testimony on how I got my husband back. My husband left me for no reason 3 years ago. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself, my life became very bitter and sorrowful. Then 1 day, a friend of mine told me about a great spell caster that is very good and, he said he gave him some lucky numbers that he played in a lottery and he won. I didn’t believe it because I’ve worked with so many of them and it didn’t work. He begged me further so I decided to try this great spell caster called DR OZIL. I still didn’t believe. I used the spell he gave me and the next day I received a call from my darling husband Thomas last month. He apologized and came back to me. He even gave me 10,000USD as a means of compensating me. I’m very happy now. Thank you DR OZIL, You can reach him via email:(drozilsolutionhome@gmail.com or drozilsolutionhome@yahoo.com ) or through his website: http://drozilsolutionhome.webs.com/
        He can solve any problem like,
        (1) If you want your ex back.
        (2) you need a divorce in your relationship.
        (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
        (4) You want women & men to run after you.
        (5) If you want a child.
        (6) You want to be rich.
        (7) You want to tie your husband & wife to be yours forever.
        (8) If you need financial stance.
        (9) He can make you pregnancy.

        (10) He can cure you from any diseases.

            yup, he/she is not. We generally never say USA either. We say the state name or city name. Like, I’m from LA ;)

          • JustSayin’

            We also don’t say “10,000USD”. It would be $10,000.

    • Elle Stewards

      I’ve been on a primarily soylent diet for 2 months. I do occasionally eat real meals (I’d say about 20% of my meals). I feel great and have not noticed any problems that come with infrequent eating. I am also skeptical of how my body will continue to accept soylent and have been going to the doctor monthly for checkups. I am much healthier than I have ever been and am gradually accepting that soylent can be a permanent part of my lifestyle.

      We are essentially the beta testers of this product. It may not be fully viable in the end, and there is a possibility that some of us will experience health complications in the future. For now, though, I am enjoying the benefits.

    • Raúl Francisco Moreno Bojórque

      What ever happened to the body’s ability to adapt?, You could say the same thing about any diet anyway, If you ate rice and fish and sudenly swith to meat and potatoes you would argue the same thing, And it would be nice to give our colon a break after so much crap we (as a society) eat.

      Points 1 And 4 will be solved by chewing gum.

    • Mike K

      I’m just going to explain how to prevent each side effect you mentioned.

      1. Won’t happen if you simply continue using your jaw muscles. Chew gum, or simply stretch jaw muscles everyday. Problem solved.
      2. Humans adapt to their surroundings. It’s called evolving. We do it everyday, but slowly. You can also prevent this on your own by eating certain solid foods once or twice a week.
      3. Elaborate? Specifically, which disorders would you be at the highest risk for? Or are you just assuming this one? Seems like it.
      4. Smile? Move your face? You don’t use face muscles ONLY FOR EATING. That’s just silly.

      I am David Eric,I want to say thank to dr.trust for everything he did in my life. To everyone who doesn’t believe in spell, I was one like you at first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read so many testimonials of dr.tust how he help people to get back their ex lover. dr.tust answered all my questions and was very nice about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my ex girlfriend back. i email dr.trust and tell him everything.he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the one that was to get her back to me and stay with me and to marry me.As soon as he finish the spells, my girlfriend came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I’m so thankful to him, that is why i am sharing this testimony to those who need his help. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what dr.trust said would happen. I’m very happy for the love spell dr.trust have done for me, my ex girlfriend is now back to me and we are living so happy. if you asked me or my friends if I would have anticipated how things were right now…no one would believe it! contact is email address (ultimatespellcast@yahoo.com or ultimatespellcast@gmail.com tell +2348156885231) his website: http://ultimatespellcast-net.webs.com .

      It is true about the teeth. My mom developed an esophogeal problem and her Dr. had to surgically implant a stent to aid in her swallowing. Even after the stent she could only eat banana’s and shakes.

      She rampantly started having teeth issues to the point that by her death last year she had not one tooth left in her mouth. She only had the esophagus problem for about a year. Of course she lost almost 100 lbs due to malnutrition. (another story and TMI but her doctor kept saying “it’s not life and death” and refused to do any followup and kept sending her to the PA who uttered the same words) but she wasn’t drinking soylent. I wish we saw your blog then. edit: Even with malnutrition the teeth would not fall out that quickly solely from that alone. Combined with lack of chewing it became a problem.

      It is true about the teeth. My mom developed an esophageal problem and her Dr. had to surgically implant a stent to aid in her swallowing. Even after the stent she could only eat banana’s and shakes.

      She rampantly started having teeth issues to the point that by her death last year she had not one tooth left in her mouth. She only had the esophagus problem for about a year. Of course she lost almost 100 lbs and even with vitamin supplements she started to become malnourished. The rapid tooth loss, according to her GP was due to lack of chewing not just the nutrition.

      I wish we knew about your Soylent then. She would end up with too much Potassium etc and then have complications from that. We kept trying to adjust it with her GP but the train kept going. Then came our forcing her into the hospital since her Stent Doctor refused to see her, and then the IV’s caused heart failure due to sudden excess fluids.

      TMI but her stent doctor kept repeating, before the hospital visit, “It’s not life or death” and refusing to follow up as he believed she was being dramatic and developing an eating disorder. Any appt she had was with his PA who would also repeat the same phrase.

      When she dying in the hospital he discovered the stent had shifted rendiring her unable to swallow. He apologised but it was too late (he was sincere and we knew he felt bad so we were at peace with it)

      Moral: She really could have used your soylent!

At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful but,i just gave him a try and in 2 days when i returned to USA, my girlfriend (now wife) called me by hermself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with her mum and family and i got a new job interview so we got marriage. I don’t believe it the spell caster asked me for my name and my wife’s name and that is all i wanted her to do. well we are married now and we are expecting the our baby,and my wife also got a new job and our lives became better.

I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine.

Three days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 6 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR.OSAUYI released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up.

      Somebody must either have made a huge mistake or did it on purpose to get a free ride. But I do suspect that the result will be that the sales of copies of the movie Soylent Green (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soylent_Green) will go up.

  • ibdchoice

    I’m really inspired by how meticulous and courageous you’ve been with this endeavour. I hope it works out for you because I too wish that one day “eating” will become truly optional/obsolete!

  • wilsom

    I love the idea. I think it’s genius and has bucket loads of potential.

    However, you endorse it with levels of enthusiasm that present as an almost cult like mentality. It might help if you gathered other people’s reactions to your change of behaviour rather than just your own perceptions.

    We all think we’re the most exciting person in the room once we’ve had a few beers, know what I mean?

    Best of luck, I really hope this proves to be successful.

  • Angel Heaven

    I love eating all the CLEAN FOOD that is permitted by God. Though many are trying to change me to eat Unclean Foods such as Pork. And I’m very good at rejecting it. Because, I was born to live a longer and healthy life rather than shoveling down unclean food down my throat and getting sick because of it. Take a look at this site: http://tomorrowsworldhk.com/booklets/do-you-really-want-eat You’ll soon learn more fact than what you learn from this thread. Thus you can eat foods that are considered clean.

      • TheBuxtaHuda

        Who are you to decide I am “in the darkness?” I could say just the same regarding you and your beliefs passed down from sheep-herders and manipulative pagans. People believe different things, stop being holier-than-thou and actually try living with people instead of forcing your personal paradigm that was likely forced on you to begin with.

  • Dryheaves Daily

    How many ingredients are natural or plant based? If there arent many then its just a chemical concoction. I have gone months just drinking and eating a raw food diet and now I am at a stage where raw food will be my staple. They are natural, nutrient dense and darn delicious. Not to put your product down, but there is a big vegetarian and raw food community out there who just dont chemicals in their diets. Make all the ingredients natural and you have my vote. Chemical? no go for me. But then again 90% the populations eats fast food.

    • grandbellmix

      Everything you eat already is “just a chemical concoction”. What do you think nutrients are???

      • Karin H

        That’s semantics.
        It’s pretty obvious that there’s a difference between natural chemicals that make up real food, and commercial chemicals.
        Any difference between the “chemicals” that make a strawberry red and Red #2??
        Between natural tocopherols and tocotrienols, and the synthetic “Vitamin E” that keeps your body from absorbing the real stuff, and is rejected by the liver as “not vitamin E”???
        :/

        • grandbellmix

          It is semantics but chemicals are not inherently “bad” or “good”, they just are what they are. Clarification of the TYPE of chemical (as you did in your comment) is very important.

          • Karin H

            Point taken – the difference between DDT and H2O. ;)
            Sadly these days, when people use the word “chemical” it’s usually got either “toxic” in front of it or “weapon” after it.
            I’m a little hypersensitive to “better living through chemistry” arguments, and I’ve had a good 35 years to forget the little chemistry I learned in high school. Thanks for the reminder that we’re *all* chemical concoctions.
            ^_^

    • Ryan Friend

      If you like the idea, but want to have an organic, non chemical version, check out Ambronite: http://ambronite.com/ it is another company doing the same thing for you raw food and organic people. Worth a look. I’ll stick to Soylent, but only because it is cheaper and I believe that if I can live on chemicals produced in a lab, then the environment will be better for the lack of big ag. Reclaim the farmlands! Eat chemicals.

    Whole plant foods don’t just contain a few isolated vitamins. They contain 10K+ phytochemicals that have a beneficial role in the body. In some cases its actually dangerous to take isolated vitamin supplements. Taking beta-carotene raises your risk of heart disease because it monopolizes the enzymes that digest carotenoids and reduces your ability to process others (alpha, lutein, lycopene, etc).

    • Mike K

      Well, looks like we just need to figure out how to get the phytochemicals into Soylent. If that happens, do you see further issue?

    My biggest concern (aside from some of the health concerns) would be how much something like this could help those in low/no-income situations. Getting this mass produced on a larger scale and making it considerably cheaper could probably improve the lives of many who cannot deal with the costs of life constantly forcing them to choose the cheapest, and often most unhealthy, options for sustenance. $250+ for a months supply seems a bit much given how some people are able to live.

      the FDA (who want us all dead/paying billions to pharmacies) would NEVER make this legal. That includes Obama so no, they shouldn’t mass produce this -Lest we all consume the latest poison. Gotta make it yourself man..

    Hmm, I wonder what situation will requiere you to be a social eater, hahaha, talk about a change in paradigms. You know why I would not do this? Because I just bough a bunch of new clothes, and My wife is an execelent cook. But we both work, and late, to make ends meet, we’re often not in the mood for cleaning, so I guess I, or we, can buy new clothes after we reduce our food consumption. And yes I would do it to, first, reduce the gut, and later just to mantaine the weight.

    I’m doing this, I just hope you not some Big-Corp testing out a new food suplement.

    Ill keep you posted!

  • CA Jama’atul ‘Adauyah

    I guess it would be okay. But there would be several social impact on you or people who wants to try this kind of diet.

    First of all, this kind of diet is called liquid diet, consume by people who have difficulties in eating on their own. Ever heard of parenteral diet? Where in hospitals, they IV’d the solution of nutrients into the patient body just to keep them well nourished.

    Second, pleasure is not sin. Eating a good-variety form of food is a pleasure that god have given as reward. It is how we control the lust and pleasure assume the duty of being healthy. Why do you take that pleasure away?

    Thirdly, yes it saves money and time engulfing just 1-3 glasses of this liquid of yours, but how do you socialise? Sorry this would be my personal remarks, i myself dine in, eating food with a bunch of friends as an excuse to improve my social life. Interact with people over food is a fun way instead of interact with people from the same workplace or through internet.

    Fourthly, physiologically there are steps of processing food into raw material by our body that has their own purpose. Ever heard of digestion, ingestion, absorption, and secretion. Every teeth has its function, every peristalsis of oesophagus must serve its function, every churning of the stomach is to operate normally. What would happen if you neglect these purpose and decided to just bath them with raw materials? My guess, they would survive, but they would deteriorate quicker. Why dont you find out how do parenteral patient survive? What is the after effects of prolonged liquid diet to tour body?

    But hey, i guess future is coming, and i would not be surprised if our life would be alike to the cartoon network’s the jetsons.

        Yeah pyramid schemes are great. For those at the top of the pyramid.

        • Ryan Friend

          Do you even know what a pyramid scheme is? Soylent is a company. No pyramid. Just a company selling directly to consumers.

          • Misty

            What are you, the company spokesperson?

          • Ryan Friend

            WTF? No. I am a customer.

            I simply saw that some people were ignorant about what a pyramid scheme is. Avon is a pyramid scheme. Amway and Herbalife are both pryamid schemes. Soylent is not a pyramid scheme.

            A pyramid scheme is defined by multi-level marketing. A guy gets ten people to sell a product and gets a cut of their sales. Each of those people get people to sell the product and the guy at the top AND the person who got them to sell both get a cut. This is the classic pyramid scheme. If you are good enough, you don’t have to work at all, because you are getting a cut of everyone else’s sales.

            Soylent only has one level to their marketing. They sell directly to the customer. Most companies have a two or three level marketing system. They sell to a wholesaler or distributor, who then sells to a retail chain etc. Other companies, like Apple, do both direct and distributor sales. That is why you can get an iPod at Walmart or an Apple store.

            Soylent, sells ONLY direct. So, by definition they are as far away from being a pyramid scheme as it is possible to be.

            I am sorry if this fact makes you think that I am a spokesperson for the company.

            I am not. I don’t even know Rob. I just hate ignorant and biased people.

    • Ryan Friend

      it costs the average american $151 per week for food. About half of that is eating out and the other half is in groceries. That’s $302 in groceries. Rob said that he spent $220 per month. In groceries. And another $250 eating out. Got that? He is saving you like $350.

      • http://about.me/emerald.horizon/ Emerald Horizon

        Touché … I spent $450 on groceries + food one month without thinking. Looked at that spending, freaked out and dropped to $200-$250.

    I can’t stop eating different foods, eating is not just for being alive, eating is enjoyable and something that makes us calm when we see colorful foods, I appreciate your work but Soylent is just useful for soldiers, sailors and people who want to go far away from the earth.

  • Ashley M.

    Hello, I think this is interesting. I eat healthfully, exercise and get my sunshine. I love to eat socially as much as the next person. I read about this and decided to try it, not as way to completely replace my diet with, but for those times when I am in a rush, wanting to get that fast food or something quick to eat while sitting in longggg traffic waiting to get home. I know for those times that I have no spare moment to prepare a healthy meal, this would be great. Like what was mentioned in previous posts, this isn’t going to take over. The thought is just silly to me. It is a personal choice as each person is different and will make their own decisions. You either try it or you don’t. For example; fish, chicken or candy for dinner? You pick what you want. Of course, it is reality that there will always be internet trolls out there who have nothing better to do but to harass those individuals that just want to share something, an idea, with others that have had a benefit from it rather than hoard it for themselves. I am awaiting my shipment to try. Thank you. :)

    Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about using a love spell or any spell for that matter but I was absolutely shocked when Harry called me after I had you cast my “Return My Lover” spell for me. It wasn’t 72 hours that I had my spell cast that he came back to me (practically on his knees). He broke up with me over a month ago and now we are happier than ever. Thank you all!!

    Unimaginable and unbelievable. I am Mary Smith from the United States
    and i have a good news to share to the entire world. Do you need your
    ex husband or lover urgently? I wanna tell you that you need not to
    worry because i have a good news for those out there that are faced or
    similar to such situation because there is always a hope and a solution
    to all problem. There is a great spell caster called Great Owologbo who
    can really solve your problem. Getting my lover back is what i can’t
    imagine but when I was losing Jackson, I needed help and somewhere to
    turn badly but my Aunty told me about this spell caster who also helped
    her on the internet. I thought it won’t work but i just tried to give
    this man a chance and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Two days later, my phone
    rang. Jackson was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not
    only come back, the spell caster opened him up to know how much I loved
    and needed him. This Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but he opened up
    his eyes to know how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone
    who is in my old situation to try him because he will help you and make
    things be the way it ought to be. If you have such problem or similar
    to this, please contact him on his email Greatowologbospelltemple@yahoo.com thank you Great Owologbo and may your gods reward you for your good deeds..

    Please, please take an intro physiology course. This approach will absolutely wreck your small intestine’s ability to absorb proteins over the long term. It may also lead to chronic underproduction of stomach enzymes like pepsinogen. The end result can be near irreversible malnutrition, brain damage and organ failure. Please, please see a doctor.

    I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is atilahealinghome@yahoo.com

    I thought Malaika was a scam also but my mind
    told me to give him a try which I did. He is a god in human form. Take a look
    at me now! Oh am so happy. I was barren for life as it was supposed to be but
    when I met Dr Malaika my situation changed. My hubby left me over the years
    because I couldn’t give him a child but here we are now with a cute baby girl.
    Dr malaika casted a spell that brought back my hubby and at the same time he
    casted a spell to restore my barren womb. My hubby came begging just like that.
    I took him back and we had a great sex which led to my getting pregnant. Now we
    are as happy as ever. Dr Malaika told me he does spell for riches, cures cancer
    and all kind of illness. I got to meet Dr Malaika on here and he is real. His

You know one thing i believe in is that once you are having problems that are bringing you down God always use people to raise you up. In my case it was Dr.Zabaza that was used in helping me get my lover back, Since the help of Dr.Zabaza i must say that my relationship has been filled with more love and as a matter of fact my lover will be taking me to Brazil to watch the world cup with him.

    In my opinión the main flaw of this product is in having only ONE “Soylent”. The physiology of living organisms require variations (texture, contents, etc.). In the variations it should be considered: age, sex, hour of the day, season, and others. Maybe the answer is not only one product, but, at least it is very close to a world changing solution.

    I was intrigued after I watch this on Colbert last night however considering that I have a generally healthy family and our meals can be prepared traditionally for between 10 and 20 dollars a day depending on the recipe this is not cost effective.

    You can always buy or grow your own vegetables and in bulk, use them over several recipes throughout the week the same as meats. You also have leftovers.

    I may have misunderstood when I read that a single person could be fed for around $154. Multiply that by a 5 person family and that’s $770. It is still possible to feed that same family and keep a decent bill of health for under $500.

    I do not know your operating costs but what amounts to just some engineered shakes the price is just way to high. No doubt this will be in Walmart not long from now where a one month supply will be $50 and if it’s not you no doubt a competitor will replicate your formula and smack a different label on it.

    I REALLY want to try a month of this to see if my everything comes into balance. I mean weight, libido ect. and be a testimony but not at $300 or even $255 reoccurring.

    I would say in my opinion that even if you have a great product, the perfect meal people can live traditionally and just as healthy for far cheaper. Eating right and a 30 day Gym Membership is still cheaper than this.

    I’m not trying to kill this, I’m just trying to focus my observation of it.

    I REALLY wanted to try a month of this to see if my everything comes into balance. I mean weight, libido ect. and be a testimony but not at $300 or even $255 reoccurring. And that’s not to say I am unhealthy, just saying there is always room for improvement.

    I would add in my opinion that even if you have a great product or the perfect meal, people can live traditionally and just as healthy for far cheaper. Eating right and a 30 day Gym Membership is still more cost effective than this.

    I’m not trying to kill this, I’m just trying to focus my observation of it.

    Life can be so funny sometime because i still find it to believe that just within 48 hours Dr.Zabaza was able to change the mind of my lover who left me and said all kinds of terrible words to me before leaving me and through the powers of Dr.Zabaza she was able to change her mind and came back to me. At least i now have rest of mind that she is mine forever because Dr.Zabaza has helped me to cast a powerful spell on her to make her my lover forever. This is the more reason why i want people out there to know the powers of Dr.Zabaza and helpful it can be. If you are seeking for help on how to get your lover back the right thing to do is to contact Dr.Zabaza on these contact information which are via mobile: +2348182620374 Or via email: zabaza.logan@yahoo.com

    Dr.Zabaza i thank you so much for securing my life and for bringing back my ex lover within the little period of 48 hours. My name is Alberto and it will be my pleasure to write this little testimony about Dr.Zabaza, I have never had an idea of spell casting but when i contacted Dr.Zabaza and told him my situation he told me that everything is going to be done just as i want it to be done. The interesting part of the whole thing is that Dr.Zabaza brought my lover back within 48 hours and if you are still doubting my testimony why not contact Dr.Zabaza on these details via email: zabaza.logan@yahoo.com and via phone number on +2348182620374

    You don’t ay what your background is, nor what your age is. Putting all of the nutrients the body needs requires a heavy background on biology, organic chemistry and biochemistry. There are compounds, such as phytochemicals, yet to be discovered that we eat inadvertently with fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and seeds. You mentioned you are getting fatty acids from olive oil, olive oil does provide the essential fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6. Where are you getting fiber? Without fiber, there’s no bulk for feces. You are obviously not defecating normally, so your body is accumulating toxins from all the nutrients excreted by the body. These nutrients turn to toxins and are reabsorbed in the intestine. I can go on and on. You said you are young, obviously inexperienced. The body is resilient, more so when you’re young. Once you deplete your reserves you are likely to come down like a house of cards. I would recommend you to eat legumes, vegetables, fruits and nuts. Otherwise, it’ll be interested to see when the blog no longer gets updated, meaning you no longer get to login, because you have logged out permamently.

  • Carlyle070

    This is a hoax. Not that something like this cannot be attempted, but it takes more thatn someone with a computer, internet and lots of time. It requires someone mentally prepared to overcome the natural instinct of going out and stuffing your face with the latest burger king burger, Olive Garden’s all you can eat pasta, which is what you have been doing for years and years and have been burnt in your brain with all of the advertisement bombardment we all are subject to on a daily basis. Then you need a very strong and ambitious objective that will pull you through the rough times , which will be many, not just I want to minimize the enrgy I spent on getting energy……shit! as if you were a troglodyte having to wrestle sable tooths on the way to whole foods……
    Give a pc to a fucking teenager or a Gen Xér and theyll change the world!

    I am KESHYI MENIYE from UK. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in may this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is Dr. OBUDO (dr.obudospelltemple@gmail.com) he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 4years. I really loved him, but his family was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told Dr .OBUDO what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 8 days when i returned to UK, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is I am KESHYI MENIYE from UK.

    I never beleive on love spells until i met a friend of my who told me everything about DR.OBUDO who brought her ex-boyfriend back, even when she was telling me i did beleive her because i thought that she also wanted the same fake spell casters to take away my money. Although i gave her chance to explain everything she has to tell me about DR.OBUDO , i said to her that there are many scammers who want to take our money and i will never fall victim on them, even though my fiancee who suppose to marry to me in a few months from now left me i will wait patiently for another guy though i loved him so much. she told me that this DR is not a fake one that he is real and he has helped many people to get thier loved ones back, then i ask her so how does this spell work and what is the requirements that i have to do before he can cast the love spells on me? she told me that i should emailed him on dr.obudospelltemple@gmail.com and i should tell him what i want. i really emailed him and tell him that i need my ex guy back and he told me that my friend directed her to me right, and also why am i doubting his work? he said that his work is 100% sure and guarantee that no one has ever come to his temple and also remain the same. i became flabbergasted on his words he say to me and a thought came to my mind that how does this dr know all the things we discussed earlier. he said before he can commence on my situation, that i have to have faith and trust on him and leave other spell caster and wait patiently for his own that if i can say do all this i will got my lover back in an hour time. i said okay i beleive and promise to work with you alone, then he gave me a form to fill which i did and send it to him with my pictures also and also the pictures of my ex-lover. he replied me in 30 minutes later and told me that his gods need some items to cast the spell on me and my problem is very easy if i can provide these items. then when i ask him that how can i get these items and how can i send it to him for the casting of the love spell, he told me that i should not woory about that, that there is a items seller here in his own country that can get the items for me. then i ask him how much will it cost me to buy all these items? he said $150 (dollars) only, which i send to him with full confidence, after an hour later he called me and told me that my problem have been solved that i should wait for an hour time that my love will ask after me which i did according to his words, when it was about 6pm my ex called me that if am at home that he want to see me urgently. i said to him hoped all is well he said yes then i told him that he can come, my ex guy came back to me and he was asking for forgiveness that he did know what came upon him. right now am so happy because i have regain my lover back and we are planning for our wedding that is coming up soon, i called the dr and thank him very much and ask him what will i do for him as a appreciation, he told me i should forget and keep my money that he is not after people money but to help people that also need help out there all he need me to do is to give more testimonies about him so that people out there who need help should email him also thats why am here today to give my testimony. may thy good lord continue to bless him and give him more long life prosperity and wisdom. this is the dr email address dr.obudospelltemple@gmail.com AND thanks.

    Hello my name is Helen Ivan, I’m 25 years old. I was in a sexual relationship with my ex-boyfriend for 5 years, we had rocky start for good 4 years then our relationship grew stronger and we were so happy and even planned to get married until he & my Mum had a blew, Mum called him awful names because he did not have a well-paying job. I did what any partner would and stood by my ex-boyfriend, then he decides to dump me by text and phone telling me that he was hurt by my Mum’s behavior when they had a blew. I was mad when I noticed that he has reconciled with his old time fiance week after the blew with Mum, I don’t want the years that I have spent with him to waste because I knows that he truly love me but my Mum won’t allow us to get married.I contacted Spiritual Doctor named Dr. BALAYA from posts I saw on blogs. This powerful Spiritual Doctor helped me to change the mind of my Mum to like him and also broke the relationship he had with his new fiance. Our feelings are stronger now, he loves and appreciates me. We have now got back to where we were happy, affectionate, passionate, romantic and loving. We will soon get married. I am so happy right now to share Doctor BALAYA email to someone out there that is suffering from heart break, contact him with; doctorbalaya@gmail.com

    Exactly what Martin says. You are a nut job and should be banned from the internet with this shit. It’s people like you that cause eating disorders and even death, in some!! I’ve done cooky stuff too. I understand it’s short term. All of which leads back to a bad relationship with food, for some, if not most folks. Animals stop eating when they’re sick. Of course, short term (since you’re making your body think it’s sick), you’ll notice “improvements.” Keep it up. Even periodically over a long term, you will get sick! But, you already are in your head. No stretch there.

    Truthfully, i was tested HIV + positive last 3years. I keep on managing the drugs i usually purchase from the health care agency to keep me healthy and strenghtful, i tried all i can too make this disease leave me alone, but unfortunately, it keep on eating up my life, this is what i caused myself, for allowing my fiance have sex with me insecurely without protection. Although i never knew he is HIV positive. So last few 4days i came in contact with a lively article on the internet on how this Powerful Herb Healer get her well and healed. So as a patient i knew this will took my life one day, and i need to live with other friends and relatives too. So i copied out the Dr Kpelede the traditional healer’s email id: kpeledesolutiontemple@gmail.com and I mailed him immediately, in a little while he mail me back that i was welcome to his temple home were by all what i seek for are granted. I was please at that time. And i continue with him, he took some few details from me and told me that he shall get back to me as soon as he is through with my work.I was very happy as heard that from him. So Yesterday, as i was just coming from my friends house, Dr Kpelede called me to go for checkup in the hospital and see his marvelous work that it is now HIV negative, i was very glad to hear that from him, so i quickly rush down to the nearest hospital to found out, only to hear from my hospital doctor called Browning Lewis that i am now HIV NEGATIVE.

  • Merchant Mmo

    Sounds pretty neat for a temporary diet but not for long term. Millions of years of evolution didnt leave us with stomach acid breakdowns, teeth, and intestinal tracks for nothing o.o

  • RationalGaze

    A lot of the people commenting on this seem to be missing the point of what this guy said. He never said food should be done away with entirely; it’s just nice to have a simple, no hassle default. Like dogs have dog food, this is like people food (perhaps where he got the name soylent? hah,) one single, simple source containing all the nutrients one needs. No reason to stop eating entirely, he even states he likes going out to meals with friends sometimes, thus eliminating the problems one might get from NEVER eating. Have you never experienced a day where you get home and you’re simply too tired to cook anything but also don’t really want to get some greasy unhealthy thing delivered to you. Or a time when you were hungry but nothing sounded good? Also, this is nothing like anorexia. Anorexia is not eating anything in order to lose as much weight as possible. The author even says he intentionally puts on a few pounds when necessary, simply by altering the amounts of certain ingredients.

  • Aajaxx

    I’ve been getting about 90 – 95% of my calories from basic homemade soylent for a couple of months now. The rest are from a couple ounces of juice morning and night to take medications and an occasional regular meal when I don’t have access to soylent. I was overweight when I started (6’1″ 207lb), but seem to have lost about 15 lbs without ever craving more food. I have noticed a slight increase in energy perhaps, nothing dramatic. Cholesterol and triglycerides levels are significantly improved, although I was already on meds for those. I have had a few days of intestinal distress over the period, but nothing I can ascribe to soylent at this point, and nothing I haven’t ever had before. It certainly seems to me this is a viable alternative to regular food, though I kind of wonder what will happen to my teeth if I give up chewing. Don’t they need a bit of a workout to stay healthy? I’ve really meant to check into what science says about this diet, but since I feel fine I haven’t felt the need to follow up on that. Now, I almost don’t want to know. I might find out I should stop! Now, if there was just a substitute for exercise, I’d be all set.

  • Danielle Mammano

    I don’t know what kind of crack you’re smoking man, but food does not kill you unless you are an irresponsible and impulsive eater.

    Even then, if someone dies of a coronary at 800 pounds during their 7th McDonald’s meal of the day, that is NOT the food’s fault.

    Self control is absolutely key. Eat clean. Have “cheat” days, but as much as possible, eat clean. I too have increased my health and boosted my energy by leaps and bounds by switching to organic, low-fat, whole foods. What’s wrong with spending time cooking? Some of us like to cook. I prepared a pretty tasty meal just last night, and it was fun to make.

    Of course it’s absolutely possible to survive solely on vitamins, extracts, and whatever else your body needs in their rawest forms…but that doesn’t mean eating actual food is “bad” for you.

    Having no self control and guzzling soda and gulping down grease is bad for you. MASSIVE difference.

    The diet.of 7th day.

    I am a raw vegan from April 1,
    2014.

    My diet was: 250 gr.
    wheat, or buckwheat, or couscous or green peas, which I soak in raw water and two tomatoes, two apples (or the same
    amount of melon or mango), 5-6 lettuce leaves once a day.

    I drink only a raw water.

    My height is 1m. 83 cm.

    For the first 2 months of this diet, my weight dropped from 115 kg. to 83 kg
    and then for a month has not changed.

    Feeling that my weight
    will no longer be changed, I went for eating this ration – 1000 kcal once in 2
    days.

    For the first 1.5 months of this diet, my weight dropped from 83 kg. to 75 kg and then for a month has
    not changed.

    If my assumption is
    correct, it turns out that in order to maintain the normal functioning of my
    body I need a 4 – 5 times less calories than the ordinary person, which normally eats 2000 –
    2500 kcal. a day.

    I also feel that my
    body generates all needfull alkaloids and opiates and in the required
    quantities.

    This is in my opinion the main reason why I have no
    desire to drink alcohol, smoke, use drugs, coffee, tea, spices, salt, sugar,
    pastries, bread, meat, fish and dairy products.

    Week
    ago from 11/09/2014 I did not eat 4 days, and my weight dropped to 73kg.

    Then
    I ate 2000 kcal of my food at once, and my weight today – 18/09/14 74kg.

    I’m going to eat 1 time in 4 days for a
    few months, supporting my weight 73 -74 kg and then move on to eat
    1 time per 7 days on
    Saturdays.

    I assume and feel that
    I would eat 2500 – 3500 kcal of my
    food in my seventh
    day – Saturday.

    Reading Jim Kulzer article about a spell caster namely Dr cool Magic was, i will say the best that ever happen to me this year based on the fact that i had a lot problem that i was trying to over come.I had problems at home which affected my work greatly. I was now always in a cross fire with my boss.I really don’t want to tell story here so i guess i would just go strange to the point on what i have to say.My wife wanted out of our marriage for no just reason.We were married for four year and i think we were happy though we had no kids, it was her idea not to have any cos she wasn’t ready to be a mom yet and i was okay with it i mean i didn’t like the idea but i went along with it just to please her.It was always like that i mean she always get what she wants.All i wanted was to see her happy i could never do anything that will make her so unhappy.This was all i did wrong that is make her have it her way all the time. I mean that was the reason she gave during our therapy session.She wanted out of the marriage cos i was to nice. From what she said, i was the kind of man ever woman will die for but she wanted a real man to enforce his will no her meaning was i was to week a man for her.And that was the least of therapy session we had cos like she said we where wasting our life together and no amount of therapy was going to get us back together.I was a total mess thinking of how i was being dumped based on how much i loved my wife and how good i treated her,I really didn’t know if she was ungrateful or just confused about what she wanted that is mid-life crisis but the bottom line is that she left me and who knows maybe for another man.I was still in love with her, she was the love of my life and i still wanted her to come back that was when i saw Eva-Yolanda article on Dr cool Magic.When i contacted him he made me known that i will have to go through all the spell casting process.Like he said most people are too scared cos of trust issues.I had trust issues, but getting my wife back was my ulterior motive and from my experience with Dr cool Magic i can tell you he is 100% truthful and honest with his customer.I was asked to get some material to prepare the spell and after which he sent me a package contain the spell and the rest just happen the way it was suppose to happen i got my wife back and she was my wife back again i mean she was not that woman who wanted a hard man she was woman i fell in love with who loved me cos i am me.If you want help or fell he can help contact him with his email address lovespelltemple@yahoo.com …..

  • David Eric

    I am David Eric,I want to say thank to dr.trust for everything he did in my life. To everyone who doesn’t believe in spell, I was one like you at first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read so many testimonials of dr.tust how he help people to get back their ex lover. dr.tust answered all my questions and was very nice about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my ex girlfriend back. i email dr.trust and tell him everything.he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the one that was to get her back to me and stay with me and to marry me.As soon as he finish the spells, my girlfriend came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I’m so thankful to him, that is why i am sharing this testimony to those who need his help. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what dr.trust said would happen. I’m very happy for the love spell dr.trust have done for me, my ex girlfriend is now back to me and we are living so happy. if you asked me or my friends if I would have anticipated how things were right now…no one would believe it! contact is email address (ultimatespellcast@yahoo.com or ultimatespellcast@gmail.com tell +2348156885231) his website: http://ultimatespellcast-net.webs.com

    wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him

    meant a spell caster called EZE MALAKA and I email him, and he told me
    there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days,
    that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and
    surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I
    was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so
    sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him,
    that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how
    we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made

    I want to try this!!! I am one of those poverty-stricken people someone mentioned below. There is absolutely no way in this society to eat well if you aren’t rich! Fast food is disgusting, and even most of the junk in the grocery stores are filled with garbage, especially the high fructose corn syrup, which is probably why I am overweight despite hating to eat! I might eat one or two meals a day and I hate every bite of them. I am 50 years old and have a bad back, so I can’t stand in the kitchen for two hours cooking, even if I wanted to, which I don’t! My sister and I are both just totally sick of eating! We wish we could find a pill that we could take for all the times that we really don’t want to eat. The worst part is that, because all the cheap food is so disgusting, I feel like shit all the time! It’s a vicious cycle: If I had decent nutrition, I could work harder and eat better, and then I could afford the food! But, since I feel like crap, I’m exhausted, depressed, overweight, and I only eat because it’s necessary. Usually I get so hungry between meals that I can’t even figure out what I want because I’ve put off making the decision. So, this would be perfect for us. Unfortunately, it’s hard for me to fork out $85 for another promise without knowing if I’ll even be able to tolerate the taste. I think it’s a great idea for all of the starving people in the world. Imagine if THEY felt good enough to become productive! If food wasn’t such an issue, we could move on to other things like how to stop killing each other. We send so much food and money overseas when we can’t even feed or educate the people in our own country. What a relief it would be to not have to worry about where my next meal was coming from.

    i will thank Mrs Bernille for letting the world knows the powerful man that help her from AIDS disease. This was what i have all my life been waiting for since i was infected by HIV last 6 months. I always spend money for drugs always but still yet my weight becomes poorer and my joint always getting painful and inching all day. But when i met this comment last 3 days, i quickly contacted Dr Camala the Traditional helper. He is from the western part of Africa, i didn’t spend much as i spent for drugs each day, and i for the fact truly reason this because my life was already as take by this disease called AIDS. Truly, when it was 9:00 clock on Monday this week he called me that his oracle urgently required some few life items to enable the disease wipe out successfully, then i was asked to send down 2000 usd ($). Which i did. He truly bought the items and surprisingly, yesterday afternoon Dr Camala called me that my work has been finally done and it work out well. I was glad and he told me to rush down to my hospital for checkup. Which i really did, my brothers and sisters i went down crying because no one has ever done this to a person in life. Dr Camala truly healed me. I was crying it was a dream to my eyes when the doctor said to me that I am HIV NEGATIVE. I am now a free born in life, am now like other people who now think things like human. For these days and forever, i will accept Dr Camala as my father and my healer and helper. He is a great man. Thank you sir. I know i cant reward you. But my God in heaven can. Thank you sir once again.

I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(kemespelltemple@gmail.com }, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {kemespelltemple@gmail.com },i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back.

    No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest sceptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like that, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Dr Marvel is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person, and after much “cajoling,” she (my co-worker) got me to visit this website http://extremespellhome.webs.com. It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. So, with nothing but my pride to lose, I checked it out. I was flabbergasted. Dr Marvel is for REAL. He did whatever magic he does, and lo and behold – no more than TWO DAYS later, I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counselling, and we’re doing very, very well, on the road to recovery! Love and Many Blessings Back to You! Contact Dr Marvel through his website http://extremespellhome.webs.com or his email on extremespellhome@hotmail.com or extremespellhome@gmail.com.

  • Clifford Mary

    My name is CLIFFORD MARY from USA .I am here to give testimony on how I got my husband back. My husband left me for no reason 3 years ago. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself, my life became very bitter and sorrowful. Then 1 day, a friend of mine told me about a great spell caster that is very good and, he said he gave him some lucky numbers that he played in a lottery and he won. I didn’t believe it because I’ve worked with so many of them and it didn’t work. He begged me further so I decided to try this great spell caster called DR OZIL. I still didn’t believe. I used the spell he gave me and the next day I received a call from my darling husband Thomas last month. He apologized and came back to me. He even gave me 10,000USD as a means of compensating me. I’m very happy now. Thank you DR OZIL, You can reach him via email:(drozilsolutionhome@gmail.com or drozilsolutionhome@yahoo.com ) or through his website: http://drozilsolutionhome.webs.com/

    (2) you need a divorce in your relationship.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women & men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.

    I Have never believer in love spell until i met this world’s top spell caster. He is really powerful and could help cast spell to bring back once’s gone,lost misbehaving lover and money spell or spell for a good job or whatever your problem is. I am a living testimony the girl i wanted to marry left me a week before our wedding and my life was upside down because our relationship has been on for 3 years. I really love her, but her mother was against us because i was not financially boyant to take good care of them. So when i met the spell caster, I told him what happened and explain the situations of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful but,i just gave him a try and in 2 days when i returned to USA, my girlfriend (now wife) called me by hermself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with her mum and family and i got a new job interview so we got marriage. I don’t believe it the spell caster asked me for my name and my wife’s name and that is all i wanted her to do. well we are married now and we are expecting the our baby,and my wife also got a new job and our lives became better. In case anyone needs the spell caster for help this is the email address Email:greatazukalovespell@yahoo.com or greatazukalovespell@hotmail.com tel:+2348071398555………

    I’m going to get the quote 100% word-by-word right, but this is something that Rhinehart (inventor of Soylent) has said: “I love food. Food is a pleasure in life. I also really love movies and you could say I love food like I like movies. But, I really don’t like being forced to go to the movies three times a day. Same goes for food.”

    People have been doing this for various reasons (medical conditions, scientific experiments and space exploration) for a very long time. My sister had a medical condition that required her to start a formula only diet that consisted of the most basic elements and amino acids for years in the early 90’s… Doctors were perfecting it then.
    -Nasa and some scientific companies have been looking at a way to provide nutrients without massive storage volume requirements… the only drawback is most people actually enjoy eating whole foods… go figure
    -The army is working to develop a bar through 3D printing that offers only the required nutrients for soldiers to fill up quickly in theater and stay well nourished
    -A simple internet search shows many others living off their own version of “Soylent”

    Though possible to survive (thriving is questionable), there are many other aspects and physical requirements of the body (muscles, involuntary contractions, toxin removal, phyto-nutrients and others) that may not be fully met by a liquid only diet.

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Olivia Phimzile,i live in Florida,USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{supremetemple@hotmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn’t call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same email supremetemple@hotmail.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr PAPA for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. {supremetemple@hotmail.com}, or call +27799527702 Thanks.

    You forgot about a bones – there are many possible complications after that kind of “a diet”. It’s not sounds good for me. http://likri.com/
