My thinking is that this makes it practical for me to count and ultimately limit calories, since the calories in Soylent are measured in advance. One cup is 500 calories. If I eat four meals, I get exactly 2000 calories.
As it turns out, that has produced a 6.5 lb weight drop.
I push the calories up a bit because I like to make smoothies or even soupies:
- With banana and cinnamon, like a muffin, to go with coffee
- With cucumber, carrot, and flax, like a salad, for lunch time
- With salt, pepper, chicken stock, and steamed broccoli, like a soup, for dinner.
For the sake for variety, I am starting to explore the smaller brands. I just ordered 100%FOOD.
