I used to be a bit of a nerd about nutrition. I wanted to be a nutritionist for a while, until I realized just how effed up the profession was because of politics. It’s been a long time since I’ve done research though, and because of the health problems I’m dealing with, my memory is absolute crap right now. I can’t recall a lot of the specifics of things that I used to know, or came across.
I based mine on the same one you did, but changed my macro %'s and I assumed from the first that I’d be largely ignoring the vitamin recommendations. From what I remember, the RDI is based on the absolute minimum you need to avoid clinical deficiencies (things like scurvy, or pellegra). It doesn’t at all take into account subclinical deficiencies which a lot of people have. So, my plan was to start with those recommendations and then research whatever ended up topping those.
Since I have digestive problems, I’m operating under the assumption that I am not currently absorbing a lot in the way of vitamins, so the high levels shouldn’t be a problem. Right now, I’m only planning on doing straight soylent for a month, to try to heal some issues. During that time, I’ll reevaluate what I might not need as much of. If the digestive issues resolve, which I think they might, I’ll def need less. Then I’m going to do soylent in the morning and afternoon, and eat a healthy dinner…so I’ll definitely be reevaluating my nutrient needs.
I’m also working with a natural Dr. who’s going to be recommending some stuff for me, so I’ll have to take that into account. I’ll be tinkering with it for at least another month before I start ordering ingredients.
I’ll double check my numbers but I did a lot of converting while entering them. I’m pretty sure they’re right, they’re just high because they’re not normal multivitamins.
