I’ve been desperately interested in the concept of Soylent ever since reading Rob’s first post on the subject a couple months back. However, I’ll be the first to admit that I lack the knowledge both of bodily processes/needs and, thusly, the knowledge to create an ideal mixture. So I’d like some help.
With all of the branches and offshoot that this movement has created, so many personal formulas have been developed and shared/critiqued. With that in mind, I’m hoping that someone more knowledgeable than I can point me to a good starter formula… One that’s been given a little time to “bake”. I fully understand that this stuff is highly personalized, and I have no problem making logical adjustments as I go along… but I’m just a dude looking to try this stuff out, and don’t know where to start. I’m not necessarily looking for a personalized formula, just for someone to point at one and say “try this to start with”.
- 28 years old
- 200 pounds (fat/muscle ratio is a little less than ideal at this point >.<)
- Willing to spend whatever it takes to acquire the right ingredients
Ideally, I’d love to establish a formula that works for a sustained primary food source. However, one of my goals is to lose 30 or so pounds, so I’d eventually like to be able to tweak the formula to facilitate this in a healthy way.
Thanks SO MUCH in advance for pointers/tips/criticisms! I’d love to one day be very active with this stuff and develop enough of an understanding to contribute my own advice… I just need some help in knowing where to begin.
