Sorry, but the people have spoken.



It would be lifechanging if we could get something like Iron Man's fusion reactor in our chests to keep us going so we wouldn't have to eat or poop anymore. It's a noble endeavor that unfortunately will never be followed because people love eating and making GBS threads too much. It is tragic that it is humanity's most ignored utopian ideal to pursue.

For some reason I find it difficult to eat during the day most of the time. Some days will be better than others but yeah, imagine having hunger pains and all the accompanying mood and energy changes but no desire to eat - or worse, eating seems actively unpleasant. I've been drinking Ensure/Boost type things practically daily for two years now because for some reason liquids are fine and even enticing.

i dated a girl who really wanted not to eat food and she was going to subscribe to soylent and i told her just get the old people ensure things at least that's made by scientists. she had crazy ways of trying to control her relationship with food like fasting on water for a month or doing insane diets. ultimately i told her these are just different names for anorexia and she was very upset by this and in the end after like 3-4 months of couples counseling we broke up. the sad part is that she was so unbelievably hot when she would gain like 10 lbs from just eating normally, she had easily the nicest body of any woman i've ever been with during these times. what can i say about this relationship except that while things were difficult, we clearly loved each other and both tried really hard to keep that. anyways we haven't talked in like 3 years.

After hooking up with a couple of model-skinny girls I stopped finding that look attractive at all. First off it's obviously unhealthy and not a "natural" state for a normal ambulatory woman, and second off they literally get like... boney vaginas and it's just not nearly as pleasant for sex.

Depends on the type of protein but it might make you rip powerful farts. I got some not great protein powder when I lifted weights and it was kind of a problem.

Lol if this is true you prob got some chronic stomach issues. Awful tummies represent.

This has been my life for two decades, it fuckin sucks. Except I dont get hunger pangs, so I go 22 hours feelin weird until I realize oh poo poo I should probably put food inside me. Sucks too, I can kinda remember a time where I enjoyed eating, but just barely so I dont care much anymore.

Why do these things always have lovely macro balance. If you have a 400kcal drink and it has less than 40g of protein it's literal junk food. I bet Huel is not as good as actual junk food like chocolate milk which has similar or even better macro & probably micro nutrients.

It seems like this one won't poison you the way Soylent does (maybe), so it's a process of refinement and gradual improvement.

At the end of 2018, a study was published by London Metropolitan University showing that certain bacteria, normally present only in intestinal tracts or feces, were found on McDonald's self-service screens.



I have a co-worker with some digestive issues, so he had a lot of issues eating. He tried out Soylent. I busted his chops about it but I decided to try it. He gave me pack and I made a quart of it. I chugged the whole thing right there at my desk. My coworkers recorded it. They said I slowly started to turn pale. My stomach felt so sick. I was messed up the rest of the day and had the best/worst farts.

Tell your doctor you need a calprotectin test.

I have Crohn's disease and what you describe comes close to the first symptoms I noticed. You might very well have a stricture somewhere in your upper GI tract, which a simple procedure can solve (they inflate a balloon in your stomach.) If it is a stricture and you don't do anything about it, eventually every single bite of food you take - no matter how small - will feel like swallowing broken glass. Ask me how I know.

the quality of food has gone severely down during the quarantine
nearly every ingredient is now substituted, even in packaged foods
you will likely not eat as well as you did in 2019 for at least a decade, perhaps ever again

as a consequence the act of food consumption has become greedy in of itself
food is not needed more than once every few days yet we still insist on maintaining the energy consumption of "the past", aka that we require 3 meals a day for purposes of commuting and travel

this is not the reality we live in any more

if it weren't for the service economy propping banks up with liquidity it seems likely we would indeed be transitioning to jetsons pill food anytime in the next year or two


long story short: i agree with you, op.

Shakes or smoothies as a meal replacement are absolutely a thing and in fact I started making breakfast smoothies when I have little time and I want to eat healthy-ish. Like others have said there's also old people mixes that are healthy but propably don't taste good? When in doubt just get a blender, google some recipes and go to town. Protein powder, almond milk, bananas, some some fruit, some nuts and maybe a bit of oats all mixed together are pretty good. You can add some spinach or kale or whatever for extra health benefits.

Just don't buy soylent or huel or whatever, I can guarantee you it's cheaper, healthier and tastier to do something yourself.
