I just received my Soylent about a week ago, and have started using it to replace my breakfasts. I don’t intend to replace all meals, as I enjoy eating – however, my breakfasts have always been sorely lacking in the nutrition department, generally consisting of a Pop Tart or breakfast bar at best (and oftentimes I’d end up skipping breakfast altogether and just snack on junk food at the office until lunch rolled around).
This said, I am trying to figure out how much Soylent I need to use to fit it appropriately into my diet; I don’t want too many calories because I’m trying to drop a few pounds, but I also don’t want to skimp or I’ll just end up snacking on junk food again when I get hungry. This brings us to my question:
How many calories (kcal) are in a single scoop of Soylent 1.0 powder? How many calories in a teaspoon of the oil? The “Nutrition Facts” label has a “per meal” breakdown, and I’ve gathered that one pouch is ~3.5 scoops, but is that accurate? Can I just multiply everything by 0.857 to figure out what’s in a single scoop? Where does that leave me with the oil?
If per-scoop information isn’t available, I’d take per-ounce (in fact, that might work better for me) – I have a kitchen scale so I can weigh out my morning portion based on my caloric needs.
