I’ve been looking into DIY soylent for a little while, and decided to follow this recipe : http://diy.soylent.me/recipes/bachelorette-chow-basic-chocolate-complete-soylent-1500-calories#
I am a small female, 5’0 and of normal weight so I thought this one would fit perfectly.
I purchased all ingredients and started to compare the nutrient contents to make sure it all matched up. But honestly nothing is making sense to me, AT ALL. Let me give you an example.
NOW Potassium Gluconate. On the spreadsheet, it says to take 17 grams, which will result in 0.540 grams of potassium.
Okay. So I look at what my bottle says. It says serving size is 1.74g and that contains 270mg of potassium… Hm. I realize I’m pretty bad at math but no matter what I angle I look at it, i cant seem to make it all add up. If I take 17g of this stuff, according to the bottle, I will have taken 2.64g of potassium? That’s way more than what the spreadsheet says. And this is just one ingredient. Almost every single other one is this way as well. PLEASE someone call me out and tell me how stupid I am if this is the case. Tell me how to correct this. I would like to get started making this stuff but I refuse to until I understand how it works and how much I should be mixing.
