I had an idea and i'm wondering if its any dangerous to have maybe one or two (if one doesnt fulfill the nutritional needs) lists of what exactly to eat in this day and eat exactly that everyday. If two lists, one each day. I'm trying to make some decent lists with Excel but as I just started I don't have anything. I would, surely eat other stuff, but only eventually. I heard variation is the key, but why would it be? What do you think of that?

I think it's possible to get everything you need from one or two food plans but you would have to exercise a lot of caution and make sure you're getting everything you need. I wouldn't recommend it without a doctor's approval first.

This guy actually came up with a meal replacement shake to eliminate the need to eat real food altogether, he calls it Soylent and if it works the results could be interesting:

Maybe if it catches on you could just buy a few cases of that instead! The ultimate lazy dude's meal. tongue3.gif

Eat potatoes, it is possible to survive and even thrive on just potatoes.

This is true. Make potatoes your staple, compliment with whatever fruits and veggies you like for variety's sake. It really doesn't have to be any more complicated than this.

I'll try to make something with potatoes then! If I end up with something useful I'll share here.

BTW, I read it somewhere that the soylent's guy uses whey as protein...

Soylent is very interesting! More than lab meat IMO.


I looked it up and find the version released as of 6/20/2013 is vegan:


Soylent v.8 alpha ingredients

Changes from v.7 bolded

Maltodextrin (carbs)
Oat Powder (carbs, fiber, protein, fat)
Rice Protein 
Medium chain triglycerides (fat) 
Potassium Gluconate 
Salt (sodium) 
Magnesium Gluconate 
Monosodium Phosphate 
Calcium Carbonate 
Methylsulfonylmethane (Sulfur) 
Powdered Soy Lecithin 
Choline Bitartrate 
Ferrous Gluconate (Iron)

This post is an update to our previous ingredients post.

Please note that the above list includes the major ingredients of Soylent, and Soylent contains some vitamins and minerals that are not listed above.


I don't see how using animals could be either cost effective or environmental anyway.

Actually, wouldn't the word whey be correct for either the liquid from making curds from milk OR from making curds in tofu? I recall the recipe I used for tofu called it whey-the liquid that remained after the coagulant. 


Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
