I finally finished my "masterpiece "
http://diy.soylent.me/recipes/muscle-chow-v3-wpcmpi-ppi-premix-cutting-accurate-pricing Updated 11/10/2014: Increased the simple sugars and it’s infinitely more satisfying to drink. Also had to add in a ton more psyllium husk which was critical for comfort. Right now I’m down below 8% bodyfat and still steadily losing. 1/3 -> 2/3’s of my meals are Muscle chow and I can seamlessly switch between chow and traditional nutrition)
Is it really this easy? Just make sure the boxes light up green and then get going? I’ll be listening to my body for sure and easing into it a week at a time but is this all there is?
Just as an explanation of where this mix came from. This mix is a realization of my current diet (heavily tracked and monitored) in a simple and easy to do soylent style shake. I recently switched from super low carb, high fat, and moderate protein to a lower fat, high protein moderate carb diet. I’ve been dropping excess body fat very quickly and am looking to find a convenient way to keep it going while I’m away at volunteer obligations over the summer.
I will be using this formula in conjunction with a strength building program to cut body fat and spare muscle. I’m currently 233 at about 13% bf and after I reach 7% bodyfat (will re-evaluate bf% at 215, 210 and 205 lbs) I would switch to a higher calorie maintenace formula (still to be determined).
Please come in here and let me know if I’m missing anything, pitfalls to worry about or any gotcha’s that you’ve seen.
