So i did a week trial of People chow 3.0.1 and loved it. There were some issues, however.
First, i’m not a small guy. I need more than 2000 calories, according to this site - http://nutritiondata.self.com/tools/calories-burned, I expend 4456 kcal per day. Ok, weight loss is a goal of mine in this, so i’m cool with restricting my caloric intake - However, I was exhausted, at around noon i’d have a small bag out of peanuts from the vending machine at work and after work, I’d have a small dinner. It still kept my calorie count rather low, and I lost a good bit of weight during the week still. My guess was that i was not putting in nearly enough protein in my soylent - hence me getting incredibly tired. I went to GNC and bought GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 as they told me it would allow me to add protein and not much else.
The other issue i had is that the corn masa was starting to annoy me. Between that thick riverbed-silt feeling washing down my throat with each meal and the overwhelming constant taste of corn, i needed something different. Now, i’ve been trying to change my own version of people chow 3.0.1 to move to olive oil (simply a matter of personal preference.) and Oat Flour (I’ve been able to find it easier around here than corn masa - i’ve yet to find the brand that i purchased for that first week off of amazon in my local supermarket, and I haven’t seen many equivalents. Although i might be missing them, i’m nervous about getting the wrong thing.) , increase my protein intake and my calories a bit (Moving to about 2500-3000) so I can do nothing but soylent throughout the day if i so choose, but after a few hours of trial and error on diy.soylent.com - every iteration of my recipe poisons me with too much niacin, or too much manganase. If i balance those out, I’m not getting enough of other micro nutrients (Vitamin A, etc) .
I’m looking for some help with this, cause i’d really like to get back onto soylent.
