Has anyone tried Soylent? My husband just got his and will be trying it soon. I'm not interested in trying it, although he ordered me some too, a while back.

It is supposed to replace food completely...

I thought this was a joke at first, and was going to say SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE! but then I quickly Googled and saw this is a meal replacement shake or something.

If you read reddit or the various blogs, a lot of people have tried to make their own and use it regularly. I think the version that was sold as a kickstarter was a bit high in calories, especially for women but you could always use less. There are some do-it-yourself formulas for female soylent (less calories, all the nutrients). Some people swear by it.

I've been following this guy along for quite a while, as I simply find him interesting (I've never met someone who doesn't enjoy food!). I think it's a great option for people who do not like to eat or cannot stand meal prep. It could also save money. But, as per my understanding, it is not billed as a weight loss item.

Yup, it is actually not meant for weight loss, just as an easy way to get all your nutrients in an 'easy' way.
