My doctor recommends I eat 3k-4k calories a day; back when I had trouble eating and had issues they recommended something incredibly revolutionary. Protein Shakes/Powder....

The powder I used was about 0.58 cents a calorie while Milk is about 0.175 cents a calorie. Soylent is about 0.46 cents a calorie.

150 calories for the powder
125 calories for the Milk

21 cents for the milk and 87 cents for the powder so; $1.08 for 275 calories with protein shakes and milk (0.39 cents a calorie) while Soylent would cost me a $1.26 for the same amount.

SO let's assume I'm unable to eat solid foods but can ingest liquids fairly well and I need a minimum of 3000 calories a day; that's 1125000 calories in a year or 21000 calories a week.

I'm spending about $4387 dollars a year to drink protein powder mixed with milk to maintain my diet and if I used Soylent I'd be paying $5175 dollars a year.

For a family of four to eat Soylent? 20.7k a year.
For a family of four to live off protein powder and milk? 17.5k a year.
For a family of four to live off the most liberal natural diet the USDA has? 14.9k a year.
For a family of four to live off the average / moderate level diet the USDA has? 12.3k a year.

I wouldn't even bother with it except as super expensive astronaut food. :lol:

Also astronauts probably needs some moral support and this thing is not gonna help. If there is ever a space colonization, you will need nice meal far from home to stay sane. :D

I'd rather have a steak sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and mayo. Heavy on the tomatoes.

Oh wait, the orders are starting this year.

I'm excited. It's only for America now, though.


Why Anglo-Saxons are so adverse at cooking and eating good food? Cooking is both fun and creative. It's also extremely rewarding to taste the result of your work. I won't even touch Soylent thing with a stick!
