Soylent

Have you all heard of this?  It's considered an all-in-one meal replacement that provides everything your body needs.  I think I'm going to give a try myself soon.

Yeah, I've heard of it. I would never try it. I love eating, I love different flavours en textures. I think it is more healthy to get vitamins en nutrients from fresh and natural sources. Drinking some powdered vitamins does not sound pleasant for me. I would get bored with it in 1 or 2 days. It takes all the pleasure out of eating and cooking. Eating -for me at least- is much more than just getting my calories and nutrients...

Soylent is a joke and it would give you diabetes and heart attack long term. It is against everything a Paleo belief system stands for. It's got no cholesterol, uses the daily recommended intake of vitamins and doesn't go over it, no animal fat. though 84 grams carbs list per serving, 2 from sugar, 8 from dietary fiber, what??????.................. Let that dude develop over another 30 years, then try it out.

For what it's worth, I tried it right when they started selling about 2 years ago.

I actually liked the taste & texture. Was pretty easy to drink and hold down. First time was a bit iffy but my body quickly got used to it.

I don't think it's the solution to ending world hunger but recommend at least trying out especially if you're need to eat on the go.

Here is a pretty in-depth writeup on it: http://fourhourworkweek.com/2013/08/20/soylent/
