So I am an avid reader of the hipster pseudo-rag Vice Magazine. This is a story that they are currently running on their site.
Basically, this guy has engineered his own meal replacement, not for weight loss, but for simplicity. Not only is he getting all of the nutrients, proteins, trace minerals he needs (according to him), he thinks that it could solve world hunger, over-farming, food deserts (well maybe thats something I threw in), and malnutrition in lower socio-economic classes.
A side note: a fellow I know engineered a drink from all natural ingredients and swears by it. He is a fitness guru and swears he only drinks his juice and eats a few small protein-rich meals a week. In his case, it seems to work. I have even tried it with ok results (an allergy prevented the inclusion of a key ingredient, so I didn't get the full experience).
I think it sounds neat, but maybe crazy? Am I passing judgement by thinking that its weird to not want food? I mean, most of our goals include eating for nutrition, rather than just out of habit or boredom of as a coping mechanism, but to forgo food altogether?
I checked out his blog, too. I will admit that I am fascinated by this guy's idea, but I don't know how to feel.
Check it out for yourself!
