food is fun

i mean, some of it. i just ate a power bar, and i'd rather eat than soylent, unless they make it taste really good

This is a step in the right direction, however it should not be in the hands of private entities.

It is too bad this Soylent is not made from people. So many problems would be solved that way. There are too many resources wasted on the preservation and burial of dead bodies. Imagine the energy we could harvest if we used the bodies for food and fuel instead.

i'm considering purchasing some and trying it out (for weight gain). the plan would be to use it for breakfast, afternoon, and late evening, and then try to eat a decent "normal" lunch and dinner along with it. apparently it makes you fart a bunch during the first week so i might consider starting it when i have a few days off work in a row.

glanced at this article (instead of doing work, sadly). i like the idea, except that, for many people, eating is -- at its core -- a nervous reaction or a means of getting psychological comfort or a socializing experience. replacing food with soylent isn't going to take away those other reasons to eat. if anything, i'd worry that soylent would make people heavier and drive up food costs, because instead of replacing meals, they'd wind up supplementing meals (same thing happens when you eat a lot of protein bars in addition to your regular meals, without enough offsetting exercise). still, if you can address those other reasons people eat, it's a nice idea.

Daniel, Esq 2, Sunday, 11 May 2014 16:59 (eight years ago) link

the article does touch on that a little:

Soylent has been heralded by the press as “the end of food,” which is a somewhat bleak prospect. It conjures up visions of a world devoid of pizza parlors and taco stands—our kitchens stocked with beige powder instead of banana bread, our spaghetti nights and ice-cream socials replaced by evenings sipping sludge. But, Rhinehart says, that’s not exactly his vision. “Most of people’s meals are forgotten,” he told me. He imagines that, in the future, “we’ll see a separation between our meals for utility and function, and our meals for experience and socialization.” Soylent isn’t coming for our Sunday potlucks. It’s coming for our frozen quesadillas.

famous instagram Dog (Karl Malone), Sunday, 11 May 2014 17:03 (eight years ago) link

yeah, i saw that. again, it's a nice idea in theory, but i kind of doubt people would be so well-regulated and disciplined to really limit their actual food intake to limited eating for "experience and socialization." but who knows? if there was a real increase in food-scarcity or much higher food-prices because of global warming, maybe we'd finally get some of that "big consciousness shift" that some people have been expecting forever.

Daniel, Esq 2, Sunday, 11 May 2014 17:06 (eight years ago) link

i nervous/anxiety-eat so much that anything i take, on a regimented-program, tends to be just extra stuff i eat, unless i'm being super-disciplined and constantly thinking about it.

Daniel, Esq 2, Sunday, 11 May 2014 17:07 (eight years ago) link

i don't imagine that people who love food (i.e. nearly everyone) are in danger of having soylent significantly damage their lifestyle, but i'm not one of those people so i probably don't have the right perspective. i do enjoy the cultural rituals of sitting around a table and eating with friends and family, it's just that for me, the sheer quantities of food that we all shove into our mouths multiple times a day is unbelievable. i've made an effort to keep up and stuff myself so many times, but my digestive system revolts. it makes me feel like an alien sometimes, this fundamental disconnection from nearly everyone else.

there was a gawker article on this about a year ago that summed the feeling up well:

But then, couldn't hunger be seen as a sort of chronic condition? And food the medicine you treat it with? Imagine if the only way to treat some disease was to buy many different ingredients from a store, then cook the ingredients into medicine according to a complicated recipe, then clean up all the equipment after. Wouldn't you want a simpler medicine, something you could just chug? I was beginning to see the logic that led to Soylent.

of course, that fleeting sentiment was quickly followed up with

Then I took another big gulp of the stuff and my feeble, lasagna-fired mind faltered and I thought of bodily fluids and began to gag, so I dumped the whole thing in the sink.

no; i think the ability to limit food-intake is great and i'm jealous of this trait.

yeah, compared to the possibility of relatively rich people in developed countries shifting to soylent, it seems much more likely that soylent would take hold among the billions of people who are going to be fucked by climate change. it would be a food of necessity, not choice. soylent's creator wants to get it down to $5 a day, but if they could get it down to $2 a day, imagine the effect on the 2.5 billion people who currently live on less than $2 a day. but that almost sets up a sci-fi dystopia where billions of people are subsisting on soylent, made by (what would by then be) a megacorporation!

at some point the WHO will get interested, I'm guessing

ogmor, Sunday, 11 May 2014 17:40 (eight years ago) link

Billions of people silently chugging down Silicon Valley hipster protein shakes seems a lot less likely that billions of people rioting because there isn't enough food. And that's a long way off - between there and here is the gradual increase in the cost of meat. People will just eat less and less meat, possibly provided in still-actually-recognisable-as-food forms by fast food chains. And even then it's still a long transition period, because it takes 1000kg of grain fed to a cow to make 1kg of beef.

7 kg dry grain (including soy) for 1 kg beef. For pork, its 4 kg, and for chicken, tilapia, and catfish, about 2. Modern chicken and herbivorous fish are remarkably efficient at feed conversion when antibiotics & digestive enzymes are added to feed.

Outside of famine areas, macronutrients aren't the issue. Unless one is eating very low-protein staples like taro and cassava almost exclusively, there's adequate protein (as well as essential n-6/n-3 fatty acids) in most calorically adequate diets. Micronutrients, on the other hand are a problem, even in developed countries. There are better ways of getting micronutrients into the underprivileged. I'm rooting for famed biochemist Bruce Ames and his Chori bar.

panic disorder pixie (Sanpaku), Sunday, 11 May 2014 19:49 (eight years ago) link

Most calorically adequate whole food diets, that is; sometimes I forget there are still people that consider Coke or white bread as foods.

panic disorder pixie (Sanpaku), Sunday, 11 May 2014 19:56 (eight years ago) link

not getting enough of certain micronutrients isn't nearly as much of a health concern as getting too much salt and sugar.

Why is this called "soylent"? I can't imagine a less appealing name.

soxahatchee (Treeship), Sunday, 11 May 2014 20:08 (eight years ago) link

i ordered a week's supply of soylent from the kickstarter about a year ago, but i wouldn't have in retrospect. first of all it was supposed to arrive in like September 2013, but it's still not here yet! also somewhere along the way they switched the primary ingredient from oat powder to soy lecithin, which was a big disappointment for me. whether or not you think soy is a bogeyman, it's already really easy for me to get an efficient balanced diet from soy products, an all-meal-replacing soy-based shake isn't really adding much new value.

een, Sunday, 11 May 2014 20:11 (eight years ago) link

i thought lecithin was for mouthfeel/emulsifying?

Philip Nunez, Sunday, 11 May 2014 20:17 (eight years ago) link

oh is that right? i thought in one update e-mail they said they replaced the oat powder with a soy byproduct (lecithin i thought)

een, Sunday, 11 May 2014 20:30 (eight years ago) link

i just notice lecithin in a lot of chocolate bars (which i would rather be a meal replacement). i suspect it gives it a chalky taste, too, but could be imagining. the organic ones don't have it.

Philip Nunez, Sunday, 11 May 2014 20:36 (eight years ago) link

Lecithin an emulsifier (a detergent like molecule, like those in your cell walls) and is to keep fats from separating out and forming globules. It shouldn't have much of a taste at all, certainly not chalky.

Some non-dairy milks actually use chalk as a calcium supplement. Terrible if added to soups.

“Food was such a large burden,” he told me recently. “It was also the time and the hassle. We had a very small kitchen, and no dishwasher.” He tried out his own version of “Super Size Me,” living on McDonald’s dollar meals and five-dollar pizzas from Little Caesars. But after a week, he said, “I felt like I was going to die.” Kale was all the rage—and cheap—so next he tried an all-kale diet. But that didn’t work, either. “I was starving,” he said.

There's a lot of "missing the point" with these guys. You pour endless energy into scraping away any possible drag or entropy loss on the absolute barest amount of energy/time/cognition cycles expended in order to do....what? What other aspect of your life does all this newly created surplus of time & energy & processing power allow for? At least in WoW or any JRPG, min-maxing the pinnacle utmost character means you could be demonstrably stronger, faster, richer, better at playing the game which is the equivalent of living in the game's universe.

Here, other than I guess pouring yourself into work(which is possibly why start-up types flock to this behavior and/or horse semen-like food replacement), what aspects of life is benefited by this process? Or is this process just the end-result in and of itself because you have nothing else to fill that space?

Professor Goodfeels (kingfish), Wednesday, 25 November 2015 22:28 (seven years ago) link

more time to spend installing new apps is my guess. or blogging about them. tbf i wouldn't be surprised if some of them at least would argue that it frees up time for the things that they think make life worth living, some of which might be things most ilxors would be down with, like reading their favorite books or spending time with friends. it's just everything else about the attitude and how they get there that just seems crazy. for others i suspect more work/productivity probably is the "point" in some freaked out hyper-protestant ethic of we-were-put-on-earth-to-accomplish-things thinking or something.

Yeah, it's all well and good and actually GREAT that the Internet keeps letting out-there people find each other and share their tips n' tricks for navigating life while out-there, it's the proselytizing nature of it that drives you up the wall.

i'm hesitant to out myself here, but i feel like soylent doesn't deserve half the shit people give it (excluding puke bars of course). i drink a soylent 2.0 once a week as a meal replacement on the gym night where i have to go after dinner cuz i don't like having food in my stomach. i looked into slimfast or carnation meal replacements but they don't have enough calories. also i like the taste of soylent (somewhere in between pancake batter and cheerios)

sure the rhetoric about food 2.0 and the idea of replacing all your meals with it is completely insane, but i think it has some merit as a good meal replacement option.
