I love prepairing and consuming the food I cook. Nothing like a home cooked meal even if it is the 'healthy' variety that kids hate. But I can see it being used as a food supplement in some cases.

One at a time, he added extra magnesium, extra potassium, then extra phosphorous. “Every single one of those times,” he says, “I got very, very sick.” The potassium overdose wasn’t too bad. “I just had heart arrhythmia and really high blood pressure and my circulatory system was all out of whack.” The magnesium poisoning, though, was appalling. “I felt like my insides were burning.”
But by the end of week three, he realised he had it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
He might of had it to suit him, but not everyone.  Will see the results of this in a few years time, if he is still with us.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Why did he name it "Soylent"???  Is it people??

He should name it something That doesn't have cannibalism and government endorsed death at 30.  

Anyway, you don't need most supplements if you way right.

So he has made another liquid shake, the likes of which (and complan was mentioned) have been around for some time.  

Really the global food crisis is a big issue. And the past couple of years we have seen bad weather cause major problems for crops in the UK, US, Oz etc etc, and we cant really change the weather so that will always be an issue. But there are things that 'could' be done.

"Ugly vegetables and fruits" for example, cannot be sold commercially, when you go shopping you see perfectly straight carrots, and smooth nobble-free potatoes and perfect looking apples etc. The big chain buyers literally dictate to the farmers what they want, and veg thats just as nutritious, but 'ugly/bent' etc is unsellable. Totally barmy. I say give the ugly veg to the poor and hungry.

During the world wars, in the UK anyway, the entire country was motivated/advised to plant anything they could grow in their gardens, and people did so. But now people want to put wooden decking over any available greenery and go for a cool image rather than use their gardens for growing stuff.  I have a small mostly concrete patio, but I have 3 hanging baskets on the wall with cherry tomaotes, which grow so abundantly I cannot eat them all and give lots away. I have two big barrel planters that grow tonnes of potatoes in, I grow peppers and many herbs.

It doesnt stop me from having to buy food of course, but it does help!

Eating sprouted seeds is another very quick harvest crop. Only 4-5 days growing without soil, in a jar - and you have "extremely nutritous food.

"Sprouting Seeds: The Ultimate Food"

"Sprouts are one of the most alkalising, nutritious and easily accessible foods know to man. Being rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes, they can be grown easily in four to six days and require no effort and very little cost".

A sprout possesses all of the energy, vitamins and nutrients and power that enables it to be transformed from a small seed into a strong plant. At this stage its nutritional value is at its highest for instance, sprouted seeds can contain 400% more protein than lettuce and over 3900% more beta-carotine.

Also, due to their size and taste you are able to eat hundreds of sprouted seeds at a time. In so many sprouts, you are eating the equivalent of hundreds of fully grown plants all at once – when else would you be able to get the goodness of one hundred mature plants in one meal?!

see a short vid




and lastly, this guy grows a million pounds of food and fish, yes!!! 1 MILLION pounds of Food on 3 acres. ALL YEAR ROUND!! 1 pump, 10000 fish, 500 yards of compost

Pls watch all of this



just on the last vid alone, imagine some charity setting up that in poor hungry countries??  All you need is some land and a greenhouse

Don't forget about the taste buds. :D

I'm sure that drinking the same old thing day in and out would get old REAL fast. I like real food too much to even take this seriously.
That's why most diets fail.  Not enough variety that's tasty for everyone.

Fine if your eating through a tube. I know people who do, not by choice.   I like to cook and eat.   Shopping is good exercise, too. They have diet shakes I really don't see were he has come up with anything new.

The body will still expel waste and unusable stuff regardless of whether you take it by mouth or a straw.
At any rate one can still eat healthy on a very limited budget. It just takes effort and a bit of ingenuity.

and lets not forget.... that if such a product became commercially available, it will have a very short shelf life. So then it will be zapped with whatever preserving chemicals or electrical/microwave processes to make it last longer, which has a habit of killing nutrients to start with!

I'm one of the critics. i don't think it would be possible for something like that to actually work. It no good for body to take something so... artificial. how would something like that be easy to make anyway?
