Okay, a little backstory. I recently moved out on my own, and due primarily to my current income, my diet has suffered severely. I’ve been feeling pretty ruddy most days because I can’t afford to feed myself properly. What I can afford to eat is causing me to gain weight.
Then I found out about soylent. A product that would be affordable, healthy, AND quick!? What sorcery is this!? Lol, but the idea has me hooked. Even found the DIY soylent site and started looking at recipes. But here’s my problem. I’m 220 lbs, and my family physician say for my height and age, I should be 160 lbs. I want my food to be simple, and exactly what my body needs, no more, no less.
Here’s the TL/DR. Would it be safe to set my nutrition profile to 160lbs, and maintain my weight, or would it be better to set it to my current weight and steadily loose weight?
I would rather set one relatively unflavored recipe that I can easily flavor, and keep it unchanged rather than mess with weight management. On the other hand, I don’t want to endanger myself either. Any Ideas?
