Hi all, super excited about Soylent.
My question is: are there any foods that need to be avoided whilst eating Soylent?
For example, I keep birds. They eat a pellet food containing the nutrients we know of that they need. On top of that, I feed them fresh fruit and veggies which helps make up for any nutrients the pellets lack. From the fresh food, they just absorb what they need and excrete the rest. Now, for some reason some people decide to also sprinkle powdered vitamins and minerals over their bird’s food. Because a fortified pellet is already involved, this leads to vitamin overdose which can be fatally dangerous.
I know that birds and humans have very different anatomy so what are the dangers to humans?
Would I be correct in saying that eating freshly prepared foods such as meat, fruit and vegetables is completely safe whilst eating Soylent and only what is needed will be absorbed (nutrient-wise)?
What about food that has vitamins and minerals added such as breakfast cereals and a host of other commercially prepared items? These are what I’m especially wondering about.
What about supplements? Would taking iron pills along with Soylent be dangerous (not sure why someone would do this but it’s a possibility)?
Had a quick look through past threads but couldn’t find something that specifically met these questions. Thanks so much!
