The IOM said in 2004 that men should (on average) drink 3.7 liters of water in a day, and that women should drink 2.7 liters. Typically, 20% of a person’s water intake comes from the food they eat, where the rest comes from drinking water or other beverages.
It recently occurred to me… why not simply add the rest of the needed water to a batch of Soylent?
Currently, 1.8-1.9L of water is added to a typical batch. Here’s what the procedure could look like:
- Make a batch.
- Let it soak overnight.
- Mix it again in the morning, add oil.
- Pour equal amount of Soylent into 3 of these guys.
- Add required water intake into each bottle.
- Consume as necessary.
- Not having to worry about consuming enough water in addition to Soylent.
- Possible reduced acidity due to dilution of Soylent, hence less destruction to tooth enamel.
- Possibly less gritty texture.
What do you think? Would it be worth exploring this further? Has anyone tried diluting Soylent to these levels, and was the taste still bearable?
