Currently I am on a 6,000 calorie diet with around 300 grams of protein. I exercise 4 times a week (Mon - Thurs) all in an effort to sustain my current weight, and to hopefully gain weight. My exercise is mainly lifting weights, but I do go rock climbing twice a week.
I do all of this to maintain my current weight, and to hopefully gain weight. Right now I am about 6’10" at 215 lbs with the metabolism of a hummingbird.
I am completely stoked about Soylent and have already donated, just waiting for it to arrive in August. But alas I am not a very patient person, although maybe Soylent will help with that
So I have tweaked the “Beginner’s Recipe” from SoylentMaker.com to hopefully fit my needs. Here is the link to what I have created:
Please ignore the price and the days per unit columns as they are now incorrect.
In the end I will be cutting my calories and protein by about half. I am vaguely concerned about this, but I figured I would give it a try. The only thing that I added to the recipe that wasn’t there before was a protein powder that I like which is called Just Protein by IronMind. It is dehydrated milk and eggs and I have a bunch of the stuff, it also has a higher protein to gram ratio than the Whey Gold Standard does.
While most of the numbers are pretty close to the “Rob” numbers, I am a little high on potassium, calcium, and magnesium. While I have looked at Rob’s recipe a bunch of times and read all the blog posts, I have not taken the time to verify the numbers since all of the changes. I am hoping that they are still accurate. Although I did find a lot of inaccurate numbers in the original “Beginner’s Recipe” which I fixed in mine.
Based on how I tweaked the numbers I have about a weeks worth of supplies already. I plan on starting this on June 1st (Saturday) and if all goes well on the weekend, then come Monday I will order the two or three things that I only have a week supply of.
But I wanted to have someone else double check my recipe, just to be on the safe side.
Oh yeah, I did do the whole blood test thing, and everything was pretty much dead center, even though my diet is so bad. My sodium was 1 point high though.
