So, I am looking to craft myself a soylent recipe that will enable me to lose weight somewhat quickly. What I’ve determined is tat I need ~2049 calories a day, and I’m gonna start with a balance of 40% carbs, 30% fats, and 30% proteins to maximize my body’s ability to lose weight with regular exercise (heavy bag 30 min, stationary bike 30 min, calisthenics 30 min). I’m also planning on building it to meet micronutrient requirements for a 19 year old male fairly readily, so I want to comply with the info given here as well as here (third chart down).
Are there any soylent recipes that are similar to what I’m describing? I saw a few that were interesting, primarily this one which seems like it’d be easy to modify to meet my macronutrient goals, however the massive quantity of omega 6 fatty acids concerns me due to its connection with heart disease. I don’t want to drop the omega 6s entirely, but that seems way out of control. I saw this recipe, but it has a ridiculously long list of ingredients and it is more expensive than I’d like, and with an even worse omega 6 problem. This just leaves Chris Fuel which seems to be the closest to what I’m looking for. I’ve played with the numbers a bit to get the recipe I’ve called Echon v.001.
I’m pretty happy with this, at least on paper. The instructions for the iron are the same as the original Chris Fuel (take one every several days, or split the iron into 3 different days). The only thing I wish I could improve upon is the cost. I understand that it’s still pretty cheap, but if I could source a cheaper whey protein isolate that would be awesome, but I’d e worried that it’d change the nutritional profile of he soylent. At $7.99/day (as of 08/31/2016) it would cost about $239.70/mo, and $2916.35/year.
Any suggestions? What could be done better or cheaper? Thanks for your time.
