Interesting post. I hope Soylent kicks off this kind of thing, but I don't know how close we can get to that goal yet.
I'm not sure all of this is possible in the short-medium term, but seeing how Soylent and other powdered foods are exploding right now, and the cost is driven down slowly, It's definitely a possibility :)
Definitely. I used Soylent briefly back when it launched. I was a backer during their crowdfunding campaign. I think it has huge potential.
I wish I could've been around back then, but I'm in Canada, so I just finally started being able to get some official Soylent :P
The potential is clearly incredible, I just cannot wait for more long term studies that would prove/disprove it's viability as a long term nutrition replacement. That's all that is missing for me to become a complete advocate. For now, I'm considering it like an experiment for science where I give my body :)
Awesome. Glad you were able to get your hands on some finally. Hopefully they'll be able to expand to more countries soon too.
I haven't used Soylent since 1.2, I think. I'm gonna order some again soon. Have been meaning to but just have had to prioritize other things as of late. Also, I avoided it for a little while with the taste controversy with 1.4. But I figure for me, it's better than the junk food I normally get because I'm too lazy to cook and do dishes afterwards. So even if it's not 100% of what I need, it should be mostly an improvement.
Well I got used to the 1.5 taste pretty quickly, and 1.4 was..less than stellar. So I believe you shouldn't have too much trouble with it :D And yeah, you're exactly like me, I mostly ate junkfood because it was easy and quick.
