I should have my Soylent by the end of this week.
I’m trying to figure out how much I’m bringing with me to work each day (working 9 to 5, Monday - Friday). Soylent split into 3 meals is about 666 ml each, but people seem to think that it’s better to drink it slowly over time than all at once.
I picked up two 22oz blender bottles and I’m thinking that I will fill both of them up and start drinking one right away (at home and in the car on the way to work) the other will go in the fridge until lunch time.
I’m wondering if that will be too much to drink in the course of the work day.
Anyone else that is working the same 9 to 5 hours, I’d love to hear how you break out your meals.
My current normal routine is to have a protein shake in the morning and then a sandwich with some chips for lunch (with water to drink) and then another protein shake when I get home from work. After that I might make a full meal for dinner or I might just snack.
I started keeping track of my diet this past week to get a baseline of my current diet. I’ve found that I’m often eating more than 1/2 to 2/3rds of my total calories after I get home from work.
I get about 300 calories for breakfast, then about 600 for lunch then as much as 1600 after I get home from work (that’s dinner, a beer or two, and sometimes a snack). Looking at this it kind of makes sense that I’m often tired at the end of the work day but then can’t get to sleep until late at night (anywhere from midnight to 2am).
So if I break the Soylent into 3 meals (even if they are stretched over a couple of hours each) I’ll be getting twice my current calories for breakfast, about the same for lunch and cut my after work calories by almost 1/2. So about 28%/28%/41% ratio of breakfast/lunch/dinner(with a beer or two thrown in).
