Is Soylent /fit/ approved?
I know I need to eat a ton more for maximum gains but this seems perfect for general health and for during cutting.
Asking here because the web doesn't have many discussions about it.
You'll want to get more fiber, pic related.
The "fiber" in Soylent is actually maltodextrin, which won't, uh, you know, "get the job done", if you know what I mean.
(And by that, I mean your shit will be so backed up you won't even remember the last time you used your anus.)
Other than that, as long as you like drinking pancake batter, it's great as just basic, bare minimum sustenance.
It's alright for the odd meal when you need to eat something but can't be arsed to make anything.
Don't try to base your whole diet on it though, unless you're fine with essentially being a living experiment.
A little dumb, but not suicidal dumb.
Unless you're just starting out, which it sounds like by the amount of weight you're trying to shed, in that case EXTREMELY DUMB. Why? Because at that point you need to learn how to eat normal food not to get fat, otherwise you'll just bounce all this weight back once you're off your meme soylent diet.

I use my anus for a variety of non-shitting related activities at least weekly.
Yeah well here's the bit. Your junk food and soda are shit for you but frankly there are 'health foods' out there that are far more calorie dense and to some palettes far less filling. It doesn't matter what you eat if you're still over your maintenance calories.
Use a calculator, there's tons on the internet, and start planning your meals accordingly. In itself, switching to Soylent as a primary meal will do you fucking nothing because if you're consuming 3000 kcal of Soylent daily you're still going to get fat. The only thing a cheap engineered meal like Soylent can do for you over a conventional diet of identical calorie count is save you money because shit is cheap.
Also if you've ever experienced MRE shits I imagine the same effect will occur with Soylent, as high calorie rations are also a roundabout meal replacer that will do all sorts of shit to your bowels.
