Is it worse than McDonalds? Probably not, but at least you don’t feel good about eating McDonalds, and that’s where the problem is. This idea that Soylent is healthy tricks you into thinking that if you have your Soylent, you’ve done your good-eating-deed for the day, instead of thinking of it as a last resort like a protein bar.
I think that Soylent is a great alternative to most lunch options around my office, which is why it’s my default meal. But the combination of fasting and Soylent does make me go overboard for dinner sometimes. So will be giving this some thought.
