The numbers have changed a bit, had to change some of the amazon sources.
I also already ordered in smaller amounts (for a one month trial for myself).
But, I would be more than happy to share the longer lasting stuff with you, with the shipping cost on that split that should save us quite a bit (as almost everything had to come from separate suppliers sadly)!
Specificaly, that would be the phosphor, calcium, magnesium, selenium, manganese, molybdenum, B12, K, B4 and the omega 3 stuff.
Paid €133,13 (including shipping/parcel motel) for those! :S
My soylent definitely is different from Rob’s.
Obviously the taste will be different with my choice of macros, and I use a crushed up multivitamin tablet instead of adding all vitamins and minerals separately in powder form. The ones not or not sufficiently included I also get in tablet form.
That is slightly more expensive than Rob’s version, but a lot more convenient, since instead of weighing all the microgram stuff I can just throw together a bunch of tablets, crush them, and add them to the proteins, carbs and oils every day. Should save me a lot of time!
Also, my soylent only contains essentials - no nootropics and all the other stuff Rob has in for now.
Main reason for that is that I want to be able to differentiate where improvements (or problems) are coming from.
So, first the basic stuff, get used to that, and then add extra stuff one by one and see what that does for me.
If you plan to have lunch every day in addition to soylent, you will have 2 make 2 adjustments:
- You will have to reduce the amount of soylent you consume every day obviously
- Assuming that you don’t eat half a steak, a salad and some potatoes, rice and mixed vegetables every day for lunch, you will probably want to adjust the micronutrients in your soylent to whatever you are eating. It won’t be much of a problem if you get a bit too little of something, since our current nutrition isn’t ideal to begin with, but depending on what you eat you could overdose on some stuff.
My favourite example for overdosing on micronutrients is magnesium, since it’s very easy to overdose on it and it makes you very uncomfortable…and very bound to the toilet.
Problems can occur from 400-500mg already, and look how much some foods contain!
