I’ve read a few articles, but none from experts, about grains blocking nutrient absorption. Some of the ingredients in soylent appear to be grain derivates, and I’m just wondering if there’s any way to get the same amount of calories by other means?
The posters talk about better mood and heightened energy but it’s all anecdotal and what biological evidence they offer is limited and often un-sourced. I’m not arguing against grains, just wondering if anyone has studies for or against their incorporation in a human diet? The articles I read suggested humans haven’t been consuming grains for very long and that they’re an inefficient source of energy. However they’re at the base level of the food pyramid and the easiest means to get daily calories, so even if they are causing dietary drawbacks, what could possibly replace them?
