I’D BE SO SALTY HOLY FUCK
that’s hilarious actually
Step 1: Find your cousin.Step 2: Get your cousin in the cannon.Step 3: Find another cousin.
Don’t worry; I often quip that there’s two things I can talk about without ever losing interest: sex and food. :)
Firstly, not wanting to eat close to bed and then having soylent would still count as eating close to bed. It’s still ingesting calories, nutrients, etc.
Second, eating before bed was actually my senior research project in college. My verdict: it’s mostly a myth. What you eat is exponentially more significant than when you eat. Also, the reason some studies so late eating correlated with negative outcomes is because when people eat late at night it tends to be chips, chocolate, ice cream, etc. So the negative outcomes are from what they’re eating, not from the time. There is a slight difference in your metabolism of a meal if you eat it minutes before bed vs in the morning, but it’s practically insignificant if you’re eating healthful foods. There are much better, much more healthful, equally fast options
Third, soylent. I wouldn’t drink the stuff even if somebody paid me. It’s full of everything a diet shouldn’t be. It’s basically a mixture of highly refined carbohydrates, isolated protein from white rice, pure fat, isolated fiber that doesn’t do you much good once it’s separated from food, and a whole bunch of artificial replicas of vitamins (some of which have been proven dangerous in supplement form vs the natural form in food, particularly vitamin E, folate, and iron [iron for people who don’t have anemia, that is]). Also it has soy lecithin and Splenda, both also dangerous. What soylent doesn’t have: the hundreds of other micronutrients, phytochemicals, and variety of different types of carbs, protein, and fat that exist in food! I could go on and on but suffice it to say that my views on soylent are that it is at best a liquid candy bar combined with a multivitamin, and at worst toxic (not immediately, like poison, but over the long run). The ONLY people it MIGHT be beneficial for are those who are literally starving and malnourished, and even then I’d see it as a stopgap measure until they can get actual nutrition again.
Phew. Much rant. I have veeeeeery strong feelings on soylent. I could go into the biochemical mechanisms but then this post would be longer than the dashboard, ha! So I will restrain myself and stop here. Thanks for asking! I loved answering it.
PS did you know when the founder of soylent ate only soylent, he killed all the microbiota in his intestines and was no longer able to eat any solid food?! I don’t want anything in my body that can do that, not even occasionally. Microbiota help digestion but they also put out several vital products that have anti-obesity, anti-diabetes, and anti-metabolic syndrome effects.
PPS my answer also applies to Ensure, meal replacement drinks, protein shakes, etc. The marketing teams for this stuff is so strong, and the government is so cowed into submission by their money, that it is no wonder that people don’t know they’re bad.
PPPS The body is a marvelous amazing thing with thousand of regulation systems to ensure that we eat the right food and the right amount, but it wasn’t evolved for processed food! It overcomes all our regulation systems and wreaks havoc on the brain’s secretion of various neurotransmitters and hormones so that — shit, I’m going on again. Stopping now! What can I say, I’m a Domme, I don’t have very good self control ;)
