From their website:
"Soylent™ was developed from a need for a simpler food source. Creator Robert Rhinehart and team developed Soylent after recognizing the disproportionate amount of time and money they spent creating nutritionally complete meals.
Soylent is a food product (classified as a food, not a supplement, by the FDA) designed for use as a staple meal by all adults. Each serving of Soylent provides maximum nutrition with minimum effort."
There are plenty of case studies online of people going weeks and even months on nothing but Soylent - I plan to do a week-long trial in June sometime, with five to six bottles per day, and nothing else consumed except water. For now, I see Soylent being used for me as a quick breakfast when I need to rush into work, as a simple food source to carry with me during my many Summer roadtrips this year, and potentially as mid-race nutrition for a couple long races I have planned in the next months.
The flavor is bland - think watery soy-milk with a touch of rice - not bad, not good. But it is easy to drink, and packs 400 calories plus a full fifth of your daily supply of vitamins and minerals per bottle - it is built to be nutritionally complete if you consume five bottles in a day.
Use the link below, and you'll get 50% off your first order. Typically in these "try it" deals, the person giving you the link (in this case, me) also gets a discount or some freebies, but with Soylent, they are instead donating 4 meals to the World Food Program USA for every person who tries it by referral - that's pretty awesome!
Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
