    What a sad life. I love my food and I enjoy preparing it and sitting down to eat it. I'd go crazy after a day of taking powders. I can't even tolerate protein replacement drinks. I like chewing, thank you.

      No thank you. I've walked through gardens of wildflowers in the wilderness more elaborate and perfectly laid out than any billionaire's mansion landscaping. Nature knows what she is doing. I trust nature to create what I need, not some corporation whose mission is to cut costs and make a profit. Thanks, but no thanks. Enjoy your Soylent Green, buddy.

        My ex always thought the time spent preparing good meals and cleaning up after them was time wasted, when you could just cram something ready to heat in your mouth. You could use disposable dishes and not have to wash. He spent lots of time nagging me about this and other nonsense. His next wife didn't like to cook and still doesn't care what she east. I understand he handles part of meal preparation now so they can eat something that approaches real food. They don't look particularly healthy. She used to be taller than me and she no longer is.

          In his main article, he said something like "imagine if families didn't have to go through the ordeal of making food and eating it and blah blah" and I'm reading it like... that sounds horrible! what would families do instead? talk while sipping soylent? is that any different really? He also argued we've done women a great disservice by making them cooks, or something to that extent.

          I'm all for fasting though. Seems like a lot of his feel goodness is coming from that and not from his powder diet. It'll be something to keep an eye on, but I won't be impressed after a few months. People have fasted on less for much longer.

          Preparing food with loved ones, and then enjoying it together is special and sacred.

          This guy sounds boring. He's a programmer, so most of his hours are probably spent working and he wants a quick fix. Whatever. I'd probably vomit within a day of drinking that slop; it certainly looks like it.

          It's not real food. Tasty, varied, flavourful, starchy, fatty, meaty food. THAT'S why we eat: we LOVE it! The nourishing aspect of it is what keeps us aliive and well, but it's the experience that's worthwhile.

          Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

            Another thing is the body is used to "packages" of food and nutrients, like if you eat salmon, it's packaged in the "ideal" way for you to get fat, protein, omega3, etc... I wonder how the body deals with the straight source? I mean, I take some supplements, but I stopped taking fish oil when I found a good source of it (wild caught sardines, I eat them almost daily) and limited my exposure to omega 6. I have nothing against fish oil supps, but I do agree with the theory that it's best to eat your nutrients, instead of taking isolated forms of them.

              I'll get on this as soon as my parents let me move into their basement.
