So According to This tool a 6’8" man at 250 lbs needs 3233 kcal for a sedentary lifestyle.
My roommate and I started with the Food Stamp Friendly Soylent recipe, and even mixing every batch I make with milk, I still can’t get to 3000 calories a day and finish all my soylent. Around 4-5 pm I get really lethargic, and am too stuffed to think about moving. I crash hard and sleep til about 4 the next morning and wake up ravenous.
I’m pre-diabetic so i don’t just want to consume soda pop or other sugar to push myself through to that many calories. But 2000 calories is a 2000 calorie shortfall for me at my present weight(400lbs), and while losing a pound of fat a day seems like it’s nice, that seems like an unhealthy rate to be losing weight
