Man invents nutrient shake to replace food

Rob Rhinehart has developed a special type of shake in a bid to solve the world's food problems.

The idea stemmed from a realization that conventional food is problematic, expensive and time consuming to prepare. Rhinehart decided to try and solve all these issues and more by inventing a new type of food that was cheap, easy to make and would provide the body with everything it needs.

By combining a concoction of vitamins, minerals and basic foodstuffs he eventually came up with a drink he calls "Soylent". With it, he claims, it is possible to live a perfectly normal, active life without having to ingest anything else at all. Not only could this solve the world's food shortage problems but it could also make people healthier and save them money as well.

But does it actually work ? Soylent is not without its critics, but with further trials being planned for the near future it may not be long before we know for sure if Rhinehart's invention will revolutionize how we consume food or whether the idea was fundamentally flawed from the outset.

"Rob Rhinehart has replaced all his meals with a nutrient-rich shake he calls ‘Soylent’."

Yes but this is about people choosing whether to buy a variety of produce or live on a liquid diet and give up food - choice being the operative word, in choosing to save money et al. The starving of the world definitely deserve any nutritious alternative available and accessible and maybe some folk who live on restaurant dinners and spend huge amounts on fad and fast foods could consider this another reason why simple and cheap natural foods are a great way to save a dollar or two to send to those who wish they had that choice to make. So you want people to stop eating at restaurants and fast... [More]

I got side tracked by this topic all day. I read up everything this guy was doing. There was **** loads of comments on his blog too. I think this is an amazing idea and his deions of his experience on the stuff is amazing as well. Everything is pretty much absorbed except for fiber so it's fiber and probiotics in the digestive tract. People are concerned he is not eating real food and will miss something in his food but the fact is our bodies try to progress with an already nutrient deficient diet we all eat every day. There was a 17 year old girl who ate chicken nuggets and chips from Mc Dona... [More]

Some people, notably vegans and vegetarians (there's a difference) forego meat and animal products such as eggs and dairy, out of belief eating animal products does more harm to your bodies. I can't imagine a meat-free/dairy-free diet, because our bodies take in protein from flesh and can digest dairy products, unless you have lactose intolerance which affects tens of millions, when the body cannot break down the enzymes from cow's milk and genetically found in people, a high incidence in some racial or ethnic groups like east Asians and Native Americans. To refuse to eat again is a recipe for... [More]

Liquid diet would not work for me because of reasons Eldorado gave. Plus I like real food.
