Hadn’t read that, thank you for linking. But i’m not really planning on starving myself for the rest of my life and 1300 kcal for someone who is tiny and doesn’t move much - mathematically, I’d gain weight if I ate 1800 kcal. If I had time and interest to go to the gym everyday and build muscle then sure, that’d be cool then but then I wouldn’t do soylent. Today I eat about 1500-1600 and manage to maintain my weight.
I’m not planning on going anorexic, i just want to see what 1300 kcal, which mathematically would mean my kalorie intake is less than my output, does any difference. A lot of men on these boards want to use soylent for various experiments concerning their bodies, includinh weight loss, why is it such a biggie if I want to try?
I promise, if I start seeing negative results in terms of my mental behavior and if I only become weak and miserable, I’ll raise my intake.
Thanks for everyone’s concern though, I know I may come off as naive but I have people around me that wouldn’t let me do anything stupid for long. I’m also fairly aware of the misinformation women are being fed out there.
