As my soylent bottles ran low, I spent time on the biolent.ca website but ultimately haven’t ordered. Then, at walmart, I noticed Ensure and Equate (walmart brand) meal replacement drinks were quite inexpensive, so I bought a 6 back of each.
flavour: good. micros: good (i think)
macros: not so good. specifically, not enough fat.
I kept noticing I would get a ‘buzz’ after drinking a bottle. And this is my theory: it’s too low in fat. And biolent original has the same macros as this store brands. (I’m still considering their keto line, but I have another idea…)
Since I’m not even trying to go 100% ensure / store brand meal replacement (more like twice a day snack, possibly lunch replacement), maybe I could just add fat to the meal replacement. Has anyone else had this idea?
(p.s., since soylent has always made be feel so refreshed, full, and healthfully energized, I was thinking of adding the high oleic sunflower oil which is listed in the soylent ingredients.)
