I am new to the DIY soylent thing; I’ll preface with the facts that I am trying to gain weight - the meal replacements I have tried mess up my digestion, thin my hair noticably or cause serious inflammation in my joints.
I was excited to learn about DIY soylent but each recipe i have tried to create hits the red limit for Manganese around 800 calories before my calorie goal(2500 calories is goal).
I have been avoiding adding maltodextrin to my recipe ingredient list but it seems unavoidable. It was the main ingrediant in the Muscle milk gainer i tried which destroyed my digestion for a week and made my hair thin excessivly. I dont want to attribute all or any of that to the muscle milk powder but i am trying to avoid maltodextrin or whey protein for that reason.
I’m desperate for help. It is physically and mentally difficult for me to have an appetite for solid food.
