Sorry if this was been covered before, but I was wondering about trying to use Soylent for working out. I’ve previously tried working out, and made some progress toward gaining muscle, but as many people are aware gaining muscle isn’t just about lifting heavy things, but also giving your body the fuel it needs to building said muscles.
Unfortunately my progress hit a standstill because try as I might, I just couldn’t wrap my head around the nutritional requirements. One of the many reasons I got interested in Soylent is because they simplify this aspect. So I was wondering if what, if any, issues might arise from trying to use Soylent for this purpose? I know Soylent is measured for 2000 calories daily, and if I remember correctly I believe I will need to take somewhere around 2300 daily for the gains I’m wanting, but beyond that I don’t know. Would I still need to take protein powder? I also hear tell it’s recommended when working out to break down your meals into six smaller meals rather than three, so would that still be necessary with Soylent?
On a different but related note, once Soylent takes off will they be releasing different blends for different purposes, such as working out?
