Was thinking about this last night - Rob noticed positive changes in his body (improved skin/hair, fitness, etc) after consuming Soylent exclusively. I wonder if these changes are instigated by the inclusion of 100%dv vitamins/nutrients, or the exclusion of the unhealthy and unnecessary? He mentioned that his diet prior to Soylent was typically burritos and junk food; maybe the positive change should be attributed to the exclusion of bad/excess (ie saturated fats) rather than the inclusion of 100%dv nutrients?
As middle ground between traditional eating habits and Soylent, I’m curious about a supplement that includes the vitamins and nutrients that aren’t regularly consumed in a traditional diet, without the carbs/fats/proteins that are included in Soylent. I want to know if this “middle ground” would have the same positive benefits that Rob has experienced, or if one needs to go all the way to reap the benefits. Any thoughts or experimenters?
(Actually looking into building this supplement, which needs a name, with a friend.)
