This may sound silly but all RDAs seem to be based on an 18-25 year old subject with a “healthy” weight. My problem here is that I am not the average 25 year old man. I weigh a good 50lbs more than he does. I’m also a gym rat. Now I know I’m not a nutritional scientist, nor a biologist or chemist of any variety but it seems to me that what is fit for a man who is 3/4 of my weight may not quite enough for myself.
I’m probably not the biggest soylent fan either, there are almost certainly very large, very strong people out there interested in soylent but they don’t seem to be doing much posting other than asking questions about protein intake. I know I’m going to have to increase the protein by quite a bit if only to hit my calorific maintenance. My question is am I getting enough iron, or selenium, or zinc? Being that I am a much larger person are my nutritional needs not larger?
Can someone with some letters after their name help allay my fears that even with soylent I might have some issues with deficiencies?
