So, I am interested in testing my own diy soylent for a month or so. My goal is to go down to 210 to 216 lbs from 247 today. I decided to try to use the soylent sites own nutrient profile calculator. I pressed in my values:
213 lbs(I decided to eat or drink in this case as much as I would in my ideal weight).
Rarely excercise(Long walk every day plus some excercise for improving my posture),
Maintain my weight
And I got:
2464 calories, which sounds WAY to much
That can’t be right, can it? That sounds WAY to much. If I understand these results correct I have lived my entire life with dangerously low amounts of protein in my diet and been able to have a quite sporty lifestyle in my earlier twenties.
Or maybe I am wrong and I really would need that amount of protein and calories. It just sounds way to much to get to with normal food.
Can anybody with more knowledge weigh in on this. Is there something I am not seeing or should I change things around to get a more, in my view, normal profile?
