I’ve been following and researching Rob’s work for a while now, ever since it first came up on The Daily What, with great interest. I’ve decided to take the plunge and begin my own adventure with Soylent. I’ve already funded Rob’s campaign and am looking forward to sampling the “official” formula in August. However I would like to, for the sake of science and my sanity, start sooner and work on my own custom formula as well. The big diet issue for me is understanding the different types of carbs and how they will effect a hormonal condition I have (not diabetes, but with similar effects) that affects the way my body processes sugars. I’ve been working with a nutritionist for a year or so and we’ve decided that a 1500-calorie diabetic-style diet is ideal for my system, with a 50%-carb 25%-fat 25%-protein ratio, the primary goal being to achieve a healthy sustainable weight. I’m 29, 255 lbs, 5’ 7" and I walk four to five miles a day. I’ve come up with a formula, modified from the Beginners formula but I have adjusted some things based on other advice I’ve read in this forum and elsewhere, and was wondering if I could a little feedback from those more experienced than I?
As I experiment, I intend to (a) get rid of the Alive multivitamin and replace it with a different brand, (b) try to decrease the sodium a smidge without removing chloride, and © shed some pounds before I have to be a bridesmaid in my size-0 friend’s wedding with her two size-0 sisters in late September.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Side question: is it okay taking 72 grams of protein just from whey?
