Hello! I have trouble eating more than 2,000 calories a day naturally (I mean via hunger) and so since I’m supposed to eat even more than that, I’ve been struggling with it for a long while now. I’d like to start replacing all meals with Soylent as an experiment, to see if it’s easier for me to get to my goal consistently.
Soylent is going to provide 2,000 calories and a safe range of the nutrients required. I don’t have much knowledge of how all the ingredients work together or why one protein is better than another; I’d just like to get what I need. I’ve tried some calculators and reached the conclusion for my active lifestyle I need at least 3,300 calories. I’d like to gain 10 lbs this year, so I’m thinking 4,000 calories would be a good daily intake for now, and I can scale back once I reach my goal.
How can I do this without hurting myself or overworking my organs by adding additional amounts of nutrients? I know you can get fillers, but what amounts of what stuff should I get and be adding each day to get to my goal? If there is already a thread with this exact information, I haven’t found it yet… please link me kindly, thanks! C:
