Thought I’d share what I’ve put together and have been using, recipe follows.

Iron (Dissolve in Olive Oil before adding) 18mg

Maltodextrin 550 grams
Whole Milk 5 cups
Whey Protein 125 grams
Eggs (heated to 165* not cooked) 2
Olive Oil 1.5tbsp - Iron goes in here, don’t forget

To mix, put all ingredients save half the milk into a blender, mix until smooth. In another larger container, maybe an easy-pour one, add the rest of the milk and the mixture from the blender, being sure to get it all out! Shake or otherwise mix thoroughly.

3.3 grams potassium


Nice. How many times a day do you drink it and are do you feel full?


I drink it whenever I’m hungry, which is about 1 pint every 4 hours (makes 4 pints). Satiates my hunger just fine!


what did you do to adjust the numbers based on your size?


great. Thanks for posting this.


I started off at about 3000 calories and then just followed my cravings. If I craved sugar, more carbs. Fat, more oil. Meat, more protein. I’m at 4300 calories a day right now and staying at 220 pounds. Actually I have an updated recipe with the nutrition profile hashed out, I’ll paste it in here.

Edit: Got a blood test yesterday, not all the results are back yet, but so far cholesterol looks great (HDL a bit low, might add some omega 3) and my RBC count is way too high. RBC being too high is just a me thing, my diet hasn’t made it better or worse.
