>Oh, adding a fortified powder in place of a vitamin. That's, unfortunately, trickier. Certain things are more difficult to supplement around. This vitamin whey right? Vitamin D and panthothenic acid were incorrectly transcribed (one extra zero on each). You'll want more Vitamin D as well.

Correct. Yeah I wasn't too worried about D as it's easy to adjust. Thanks for checking the transcription!

>Vitamin C supplements are common enough. Vitamins D and K are frequently paired together in bone health supplements as well. This is one I've used. It comes in capsules which can be opened and added to powder if desired or simply consumed on the side.

Sounds good.

>Niacin, folate, and molybdenum are more difficult to find in targeted supplements. Fortunately I have a few ideas. First, the nutrition information in the People Chow recipe is slightly off. It was compiled from a mix of sources. I recommend the masa entry in the USDA food database. According to that your niacin level is higher than expected. Second, the things you're missing are in the vitamin whey so you may try adjusting that up while reducing the masa an equal amount. Even at 100g or so it doesn't quite make it but it takes the values close. Alternatively you could try a small dose of another vitamin on the side. Capsule multivitamins can be broken and added to powder for partial doses with the rest of your meal or taken at intervals.

Interesting. Im surprised that the nutrition info for Masa is off as it's so popular. Why hasn't he updated the recipe? Also folate supplements are common, I'll probably grab one and add it in.

>Lastly, you didn't mention it but the fiber is a bit off. I've found that People Chow responds very well to added fiber and would recommend a small fiber addition to anyone using. Ground psyllium husk in particular is popular.

Yeah I didn't mention it because it's so easy to adjust.

>I've compiled these recommendation in a recipe copy. It uses the different masa data, retranscribed vitamin whey, 20g more protein powder, and the D3/K2 capsule.

Nice, appreciate it!

>The D3/K2 is probably not all that necessary. You can synthesize D, vitamin K deficiency is so unheard of it was never discovered till someone ran an experiment on chickens. Also the vitamin whey has some. It may be optimal to have more but it will probably not hurt to skip.

I'll check on sourcing a supplement and may add it depending on cost, bottle size and ease.

The main reason I wanted to do this was because I already have the fortified whey and it's super cheap at a local store. Looks like it'll be pretty simple to compensate for its lacking areas and go from there. Moreover it dissolves easily and I dont have any issues with digestion with it, and tasted fine.

I'll check for d3/k2 and folate supplements and add them as needed and update the recipe you linked!

u/ThunderNecklace · 1 pointr/soylent

At first I really liked the standard pitcher, but I have come to greatly dislike it. Too many parts, too many little hard-to-reach surfaces that are impossible to clean 100%, too many leaks/spills from residue in the untwist/twist process.

A few months ago I needed to take my Soylent in to work, and I wasn't going to use the pitcher. I searched around a bit and purchased a tall 1.4L nalgene bottle off Amazon. I borrowed my roommates little wire ball (from his shaker bottle) and pushed it in.

All-in-all, it works quite well. Having a tool better than the original pitcher is far more convenient than I was expecting. However the 1.4L concentrates the Soylent a bit too much. I've gotten used to it because I'm lazy but honestly I would prefer a better solution.

I'm switching my diet soon, so I will need my nalgene for water, and I think I will buy the 2L nalgene solid white container the other guy posted:

2 pieces total, the nalgene lid tightness on my 1.4L bottle is REALLY good (it's a pain sometimes lol), easy to clean, and not concentrating the solution would be much better.

And having a little shaker object in the container to break up the powder is excellent. I strongly recommend one.

u/PirateNinjaa · 2 pointsr/soylent

I wasn’t a fan of the original powder, took effort to finish a serving and I was glad when it was done, loved the bottles in comparison, but I am drinking lots of cacao powder now with bottles sitting unopened, enjoying it and almost wishing for more when I finish like with the bottles.

I like it with lots of water so I don’t have to drink additional water, but you can make it thick if you want. The shaker bottle mixes it quick and easy and a plenty smooth without overnight refrigeration like you used to have to do to get the powder to be at its best.

I find these contigo shaker bottles with the heavy ball to work better than the blender bottle with the metal whisk ball, but blender bottle works pretty well too. They sell them at Walmart too in the sports section.

u/SparklingLimeade · 2 pointsr/soylent

I was hoping someone with better ideas and more relevant information would show up but that hasn't happened so here I go.

The product you linked is a powdered multivitamin supplement for athletes. It's probably pretty good but it's also not very cost effective. If you do any supplementation you'll want to use cheaper multivitamin pills.

Because protein powder isn't an option anything you do will look as much like a dietary plan as it will anything else. Is your goal convenience and health? How much time to you spend shopping and cooking already? With some research you could probably work out a simple meal plan that's reasonably healthy and easy to make. It all depends on what foods are available and how much nutritional data you can put together to make a balanced diet.

The easiest thing to do will probably be to take a good multivitamin and find a convenient food that can be eaten most of the time while using other food to fill in the nutritional gaps. Oatmeal or some other porridge. Beans and rice. I feel very unhelpful offering this advice but it's my best idea from what you've told me.

u/chrisbair · 1 pointr/soylent

directed at /u/QuantumCatBox but I'm going to 'reply' to this comment to keep things in the same thread.

> weight loss

I've found lately that I get better results with 2000 calories of people chow (DIY soylent) then I get with 1500 calories of soylent and allowing myself to eat other stuff. If you can stick with a lower calorie recipe then you'll have even better results but if you're anything like me (and sounds like you are =) you may want to try that. I created a low cal version of People Chow (maybe even the one you referenced, I be faymous!) in order to have it be 3 500 calorie meals and did that for a few months but my weight loss plateaued and I even gained 2 pounds over the last 3 months because I was letting myself eat stuff at dinner and ended up exceeding 2000 calories often (and likely exceeding 3000 some days). So I'm back on mostly just people chow, 4 meals a day, and anything extra I eat I'm doing that same amount extra on the elliptical (which takes forever and is highly inefficient - 30 minutes for a stupid slice of pizza).

> accessories

You might have already seen it but peoples like you are exactly why I made I'm using roughly the same stuff /u/SparklingLimeade mentioned and much of it is stuff you find around the house except the scale that I got from Amazon: and the cheese puffs containers I got from Sams Club.

> serving size

Here's another one for you it all may seem daunting at first but it's really not

> startup costs

If you are looking at my recipe(s) then one caveat: I've looked for the least expensive per gram ingredients, that generally means buying major quantities like a $100 bag of protein. Like Sparkling said, there are smaller bags/bottles of many of the things. Hard Rhino sells a 500g bag of whey protein isolate that would last 9 days with most recipes.

One other option is that many of the more popular recipes do have people selling pre-mixed "weeks". I'm really not trying to be a shill (because I do sell my own recipe pre-mixed) but when I started out I wanted a way to see if it would work for me without all the startup costs and wish the option would have been available then. /u/axcho sells a bunch of variants on his site and I've got several permutations on mine. Both of us publish our recipes so you can make them yourself if you want though.

u/jelder · 4 pointsr/soylent

I've posted this before, but here's my routine.

Every night, I get out a 2L pitcher and a 1L Nalgene bottle. Into the pitcher goes a full back of Soylent and a pinch of salt. I add to that 600mL of water measured in the Nalgene (they are all graduated, which is super convenient). Seal the pitcher and shake vigorously for like a minute. Open up and add the final 1L. Shake again, let set in the fridge overnight. In the morning I add the oil, shake, pour myself 400mL for breakfast, 1L in a Nalgene for use throughout my workday, and then finish off the rest of the pitcher when I get home.

I've found this pattern to be ideal because it reduces the grittiness significantly. I have also been taking a probiotic mixture every morning to help reduce gas and improve overall comfort. If you opt to not get the extra pitcher, anything that holds about 2L or more will work. If you have another pitcher that doesn't seal well enough for shaking, a whisk will get the job done.

Prepared Soylent lasts about two days. Keep it refrigerated of course.

Here is the exact model pitcher Soylent is shipping in the Starter Kit. You will want to have more than one of these so you don't have to wash it every night. Unfortunately, it's actually 5 pieces and kind of a pain to wash.

If I hadn't already wound up with three of those, I'd want to get something simpler. Nalgene also makes these awesome looking 2L lab bottles:

I also have a few of these for taking my prepared Soylent to work with me. They never leak and are pretty much indestructable.

u/Goldving · 1 pointr/soylent

I use these blender bottles, they divide up a day's Soylent into 4 500 cal portions which I prefer, and are easy to clean by hand:

I replaced the original 68oz. Soylent bottle with this glass pitcher, Soylent now seems to last a little longer due to a better seal, you can dump the full bag into it when you're making it unlike with the stock bottle, it too is easy to clean by hand, and there's no risk of having a leak due to overtightening:

Lastly, consider investing in a stick blender such as this one for the best possible Soylent consistency:

u/futur_avenir · 1 pointr/soylent

I picked up some 18oz/532mL glass bottles today. They're very similar to the Epica bottles /u/muxon uses.

Some thoughts so far:

  • The screw-on caps seem to work well.
  • The glass isn't perfect, but they feel solid.
  • The bottles are each the perfect size for a 500cal serving of Soylent 1.5.
  • /u/thapol has a good tip for an effective bottle brush.

    Here's a bottle I filled for tomorrow.

    I used a blender to prep 72oz/2.1L then split into 4 bottles. This works fairly well, but it's easy to lose a little even when using a funnel. Ten cuidado.
u/tekgeek1 · 2 pointsr/soylent

I own about 12 blender type bottles 8 of them actual blender brand a couple of cheap freebee type and two contigo bottles and I like the contigo ones best. they are easier to clean and have the heavier plastic mixer ball inside.

u/ImOnArtesia · 2 pointsr/soylent

I recently saw some at my local Whole Foods. Other grocery stores and places like CVS might as well. Amazon also has non-electronic ones for $6. Here's the one I use to great success:

u/itspclar · 1 pointr/soylent

I’ve purchased a blender bottle to help make sure that the powder stays mixed and doesn’t clump or sink to the bottom and has a good texture. As for taste here are some of my recipes:

Coffee powder:
Fill the empty blender bottle with water and set the metal thingy aside for now.
Add your favourite instant coffee in whatever amount the package recommends for the water you have in the bottle.
Throw in some soylent powder.
Optional: add sugar
Put the metal ball on top of the floating powder, screw the lid tight and shake.

Chocolate soylent:
Fry’s Cocoa - about 1 tabelspoon
Add Soylent and prep as you did for the coffee one.

Cinnamon to taste, shaking vigorously as you add

Looking to try pumpkin spice variants once the fall is here. These recipes really taste terrific and don’t add anymore prep time to the powdered stuff while maintaining the overall healthy nature of soylent.

u/A-Fuel · 3 pointsr/soylent

Would people be interested in paying a few dollars more to receive a blender bottle? I find these to be the best and least messy way to take soylent on the go, always keeps it consistent and tasty.

Talking about something like this for maybe 5 dollars, and just offering it alongside the meal packs.

u/Gracksploitation · 4 pointsr/soylent

Saturo RTD. Be quick before they leave Amazon:

Saturo and Jimmy Joy both have powder versions on their respective websites. As far as I'm concerned, they're both good.

u/throwaway234f32423df · 3 pointsr/soylent

You were probably looking at listings from unauthorized resellers, which is a common mistake because Amazon does fuck-all to clarify if you're looking at the real listing or not.

You're better off bookmarking the correct page since Amazon makes it so difficult to find:

Any other 2.0 listing you might find is an unauthorized reseller, and at the current time any listing for any Soylent product other than 2.0 is also unauthorized. They did have bars officially listed for a while, and I think they're working on Coffiest. Also, if the page doesn't say "Amazon Launchpad", you're definitely in the wrong place.

The base Amazon price and the base website price are always identical. The Soylent website offers a 5% discount for subscriptions; Amazon offers a base 5% discount for subscriptions but it rises to 15% if you have 5 or more Subscribe & Save items shipped to you in your monthly shipment. You can do this with 5 boxes of 2.0, but you have to do 5 individual subscriptions; it won't count if you do 1 subscription with a quantity of 5.

You can get the same 15% discount on the Soylent website with the 5% subscription discount + 10% coupon discount; there are permanent 10% coupon codes and occasional larger coupon codes, but they only apply to the first shipment of the subscription so you have to constantly cancel and re-subscribe. Amazon is a lot simpler, plus a lot of people have credit cards that give cash back on Amazon purchases.

u/manlymatt83 · 2 pointsr/soylent

Sounds good, thanks!!

So is this a good start?

Just want to make sure I’m ordering the right thing.

u/sinoth · 6 pointsr/soylent

Do you understand why people don't use volume measurements, though? 1 tbsp of packed vitamin powder could easily be 2 tbsp of unpacked powder. Do you really want to risk an overdose because you scooped your ingredients out with too much force?

This is $8:

Just get a scale and do it properly. It isn't that difficult. Once you better understand your components and preparation method you can take shortcuts like volume measurement.

u/IcyElemental · 2 pointsr/soylent

It's not quite as simple as a multivitamin alone, but it's a good start. A good but cheap one would be these:

I'd say take 1/3 - 1/2 of a pill per day with your Joylent, and add a small pinch of salt to each meal. You may still be a little under on electrolytes, but instead of worrying about it initially, see if you experience signs of a deficiency (or ideally get bloodwork done before starting on the diet and a month or two afterwards).

u/pinky33 · 1 pointr/soylent

This. I still hand stir to start just to make sure nothing is clinging to the bottom or sides of the container. 1 minute with that running gets it pretty smooth.

u/Sentennial · 2 pointsr/soylent

I recommend tossing the pitcher they give you and buying this one:

it only has two parts, a screw cap and bottle with a very wide mouth so it's very easy to clean. It's fatter and shorter so it fits on a normal shelf in the fridge.

u/muxon · 2 pointsr/soylent

I use these:

I usually split a pitcher into five servings (roughly 450 calories each with my add-ins). I just make sure to rinse them out thoroughly after use and they pretty much stay fresh.

u/remembertosmilebot · 5 pointsr/soylent

Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

u/mcpancakes · 1 pointr/soylent

For a scale, I just used this scale for the first time the other day and it worked very well. I think I read /u/chrisbair has and likes this one as well.

u/mmm_tacos · 3 pointsr/soylent

I'm pretty sure this is the same pitcher as I received with 1.6 order:

$15.99 - $19.99 on Amazon (Lowest $11.84 - Apr 24, 2016)

u/alejandroandraca · 3 pointsr/soylent

If you are in the United States, the only ready-to-drink options at the moment are Soylent and Saturo. I believe Plenny Drink is coming to the US pretty soon. Otherwise, you can visit BlendRunner and compare different products there. You can even filter out allergens such as soy.

u/Soyfoo · 4 pointsr/soylent

This is the exact cup I use:
I don't think wiping would be clean enough for me, but a few rinses get's it very clean.
Protip: put just enough water in the bottom to cover the whisk ball prior to putting the powder in.

u/4quartets · 1 pointr/soylent

I switched to Nalgene. No gaskets. Only two parts to clean, and they clean easily.

u/circlemoyer · 1 pointr/soylent

With the subscribe option, I can save 15% off the ~$60 CAD price tag, which works out to cheaper than from the Soylent website after the abysmal exchange rate we deal with right now, bringing the price to around $50, and Amazon magically doesn't tack on any tax. Throw prime into the mix, and I'm not entirely dissatisfied.

u/is_landen · 1 pointr/soylent

Original Coffiest, all three regular soylent flavours, and powder is available on Amazon Canada with subscribe and save too

u/kennufs · 2 pointsr/soylent

I do. I have been using the Takeya pitchers that Soylent sends out to new customers, I liked them so well I bought a total of 7 during the crowd-funding, so I can just throw them in the dishwasher every day. It looks like the amazon prices have started going up, but you "should" be able to get them for about $10 ea, and I've heard Costco has them in a 2 pack for $15.

I use 24oz Thermos hydration bottles when I go out, I bought mine at Walmart for about $20 ea.

Some recipes will need a blender, but I've stop using it for my current recipe. Just shake well in the Takeya, my current recipe also emulsifies really well and tends to stay that way.

u/flamethrower2 · 2 pointsr/soylent

I tried a case and did not like it.

Maybe this link will work:

Hopefully I didn't just give you my Amazon password or something.

My experience is similar - it tastes a little bit like some kind of lemon-infused detergent.

u/hanajibu · 2 pointsr/soylent

Amazon has their 35% off Coupon back up for all flavors with Subscribe & Save. 1st order only.

u/thapol · 1 pointr/soylent

Given the restriction on active / electrical blenders, try a shaker bottle. That should make a pretty decent difference.

u/MelloRed · 3 pointsr/soylent

Yes, they now do. 2.0 at least, not 1.5 There's also plenty of people reselling as well. Here's their official link.*Version*=1&*entries*=0

You can subscribe 5 times (60 bottles a month) to it to get a 15% discount.

u/DarthAutisticScrech · 3 pointsr/soylent

Takeya 2 Quart Pitcher. It came free on your first order of powder.

You'd pour an entire bag in with water and that was an entire days worth of food.

You can still buy it... but only on Amazon. Not on the Soylent site.

See this Old FAQ at the bottom

u/be_bo_i_am_robot · 1 pointr/soylent

Prepping 1.5 isn't exactly hard. Pour powder in, add water, shake.

Cleanup is easy, too. Just make sure to get yourself one of these.

u/GregorysAleck · 2 pointsr/soylent

Flavored powders would be fantastic if such a thing existed.

The only flavored powder I used was peanut butter.

u/axcho · 1 pointr/soylent

Welcome to the world of Schmoylent! ;) The main thing you'd want is to get an airtight Takeya pitcher to mix up your Schmoylent in - it makes it really convenient, since you just add a whole bag and enough water to fill the pitcher. No blending required.

u/pyrokld · 2 pointsr/soylent

Also since you are a new subscriber, if you want to get a 15% discount check out the Subscribe and Save option from Amazon. Ordering at least 5 boxes will get you 15% off and you can always change your qty (minimum 5 at a time for 15%), cancel or push off months at-will.

u/B3xN · 2 pointsr/soylent

Can you add Saturo? It is pretty cheap right now.

I've been making "soft-serve" soylent for a while.
I discovered that adding ground psyllium husk significantly improves the texture.

u/esccx · 2 pointsr/soylent

I think hands-down is a Blender Bottle. They're used to mix protein shakes and can handle soylent very easily. I have several blender bottles just for soylent. Example

u/MonochromaticPanda · 1 pointr/soylent

Issue is cost and size with these.

It's difficult to tell if you're deliberately low on calories and what your macro %'s are. Did you create your own nutrient profile and macro ratio using the diy calculator?

Yeah, that's a ton of fiber. RDA is only 14g fiber per 1000 calories.

u/timetravelinginward · 1 pointr/soylent

A freezable lunch bag. I got one at Walmart for a little over $10. It keeps mine cold until lunchtime and then keeps them from getting too warm if I take a late lunch. I usually pack two a day and freeze the bag again overnight.

u/Nasphreak · 7 pointsr/soylent,404_.jpg

By the above picture, it would appear they have redone the Coffiest label to be inline with the new products as well.

u/RopePurchaser · 7 pointsr/soylent

Coffiest is $26~ as well here, although not a lightning deal. It's the only coffee one that's absurdly underpriced.

u/fernly · 2 pointsr/soylent

On Amazon there is also Saturo, two flavors, and Plenny Shake, vanilla only. Both approximately equally nutritious to Soylent. If you want a change.

The widest range of flavors, and the smoothest texture, is found in Keto Chow. However, you might not want to dive down the keto rabbit hole at this stressful time.

u/Some_Complete_Nobody · 1 pointr/soylent

Use an immersion blender ( ) and a big cup. No need to let it sit overnight.

Just be sure to rinse off the blender head after each use.

u/gomtuu123 · 2 pointsr/soylent

There should be two silicone O-rings: One around the inner cap and one in the groove on the underside of the outer cap. Are they both in place?

Edit: If necessary, you can buy a replacement lid and handle from Takeya for less than the price of a new pitcher (not including shipping).

u/Equipoisonous · 5 pointsr/soylent

Combination of a freezable lunch bag and a double insulated thermos should work. They claim 24 hours but it won't really stay cold that long without ice.

In light of recent revelations, I noticed that the packaging of Soylent Drink had been changed on the shipment that I received yesterday. The Nutrition Facts side is a large sticker, not sure if it was to cover incorrect information or what.

u/TrekkieTechie · 1 pointr/soylent

Hey, this is the recipe I started with!

The flax is definitely terrible. I considered it undrinkable. I replaced it with this and found it much more manageable.

More recently I reworked the recipe to eliminate the flax altogether, replacing it with psyllium husk powder, and my DIY is now silky smooth.

u/ShippingIsMagic · 5 pointsr/soylent

I've gotten the recommendation in the past of switching to glass pitchers instead to avoid the "sticks to the inside of the plastic pitcher" issue.

The Soylent pitcher is just a rebranded Takeya 2L pitcher you can get off Amazon if you want it faster, FWIW.

u/CrunchyCryptoCereal · 4 pointsr/soylent

Blender Bottle, shake the hell out of it, and then put it in the fridge overnight.

Having time to sit eliminates the chalkiness, and being very cold feels more like chocolate milk or a milkshake than a protein drink.

u/eodigsdgkjw · 2 pointsr/soylent

Blender bottle.

Legit go to any Vitamin Shoppe, GNC, etc and you can cop one of these for like $8. These are the standard protein shake blender bottles. The size is perfect and they last a long time. Easy to wash too. I've been using mine for like 5 years. It comes with a little spiral metal ball but that's only necessary if you're making a really thick shake/smoothie, which is not the case with Soylent, so you can just ignore it (it's a pain in the ass to clean).
