Rob argues that a guy does not need fruits and vegetables or meat – he needs vitamins , minerals, and macronutrients such as essential amino acids, carbohydrates and fat. These are divided into substances: for example , he utilizes fat olive oil with fish oil. To get carbohydrates he uses oligosaccharides, that are like sugar, but with a different chemical, thus they can be metabolized for longer. The particular analytical mixture of the drink, that looks like milk, contains about 40 different substances and the reasoning behind this, the dosage and some arguments are usually analyzed by him in his blog. And what are the advantages ? According to him, they are numerous.

He feeds on balanced food, taking a few calories and avoiding all of the additives found in processed products. This saves him time from shopping and dishwashing. It has lowered the water bill as well as the electricity one. He admits that that he feel more energetic and he furthermore claims to have scars on his skin healed, some he had for years, which the people mistake him for being young. To prove his words, he has publicized the blood tests he has done. The adverse parts are the proven fact that the mixture goes bad quickly, so he has to make a new 1 every day and that he must be very careful with the dosages. One could say that the taste would be a problem or that he consumes the same thing every day. Rob says that he is not concerned about it, because whenever he does need to eat normal foods out, he will do it. And the most surprising part is that Soylent’ t taste seems quite pleasant and sweet.

The issue has not surprisingly been discused about a lot through critics , curious people and concerned researchers . To answer that, he says he appreciates any critisism, provided that its right on the spot: the human body is an extremely complex machine. Although what it takes to keep it in existence has been analyzed, it is not certain that it is often analyzed enough and the details in this case can actually kill you. The thing he can’ t stand, though, is whenever others call him crazy or let him know that he can not go against nature.

Is he mad? If you get over the particular shock of the new thing and the complete break with what we know concerning the food, the allegations can’ to be dismissed by non-specialists. In the event that he’ s right then he may be close to a breakthrough that could save life. He hasn’ t given up on foods completely and he does eat normal food sometimes. His highlight is that he hasn’ t given up on foods, he’ s done so on bad-quality foods, to be exact.
