Is Soylent the future of food? CEO Rob Rhinehart lived on his liquid invention for 30 days straight, and the feat propelled him to internet fame and fortune. So I decided to become the first person to repeat his feat—for a month straight, I'd try to live on nothing but the chemical cocktail, just like Rob. Along the way, I'd investigate the how an artificial food replacement might impact human health, Silicon Valley, and the world at large. This is the story of life after food.

Here in Norway, people can get some liquid food with all the nutrition that you need, on prescription, if they have difficulties eating enough food for some reason. Regular people however, are adviced to not live off of this, as it will make you less capable of digesting regular foods...
I still try to drink a green smoothie every day. I prefer to add all kinds of fresh fruits and healthy ingredients, but lately it has been limited to frozen strawberries, fresh spinach, maybe 5 types of seeds, some hazel nuts, cocnut-fiber, coconut milk, and some nutrient powder intended to be used for low calorie meal replacements. Really fast to make, tastes pretty decent, is healthy, and make me feel like i have eaten a medium sized meal...
Yo so who can tell me the flavor that tastes like boost vanilla?? I used to use Breakfast akfeast Essentials and boost for meals, instead of food, but there is an Original and a Vanilla flavor on their website. Which tastes like boosts vanilla?
1:53 well maybe if you made attempts to farm and not replace every piece of grass with tall buildings you’d be fine, earth is big enough and has more than enough space this whole population thing is a myth, but even if it is true maybe if we all went back to where we came from (not in a racist way) too even it out, it’s like a scale can’t have an elephant on one side and have a duck on the other side
Has anyone heard of the movie SOYLENT GREEN from 1973? It was about this exactly. He didn't come up with the concept or the name. Of course, a bunch of soy boys in the 20's feel great drinking this chemical jiz. Give it a few years and see how great your health is. smdh
Soylent has been linked to a significant raise in estrogen levels in men due to the high amounts of soy. Saw a documentary about some dude who's estrogen blood level increased by over 400‰ after a year of drinking it daily. End result was gynecomastia which he had to get surgery for, depression, anxiety and a constant feeling of being tired.
I saw quite a lot of negative feedback, but I tried something similar for myself once and it actually worked, wasn't hungry after it. Also they improved the taste, I had chocolate and it was actually pretty good.
4:47 I'm trying not to have angry violent thoughts, but it's so hard while looking at the start up bros, I can't stand that guys voice, I hope you stay late one night and some local Oakland soldiers turn them all out!!
Like the idea except needs to be much cheaper, I’ve lived off around $20 in groceries a week and got all the macro and micro nutrients I need. Don’t believe me? Check the video series “living off of $3 a day” by brothersgreen, it really made me change the way I shop and cook $68 is way more than I spend on my good, healthy real food
Whether these guys know it or not: They are huge TROLLS IRL. They are trolling you, me, and every person that backed them. For $800k they rented a Dirty warehouse and showed up for camera day...every other day its minimum wage workers...trust me...this guy is 100% pure fraud. Will "Soylent" hit? It might...and then hes not a fraud? YES he will still be a fraud.
I can see this being a good thing to have on hand for people who could get stuck somewhere, like hikers, people who sail or go on long boat trips, astronauts, etc. In other words... for emergencies only. Id rather eat the rat than that pasty, clumpy crap.
For the last 4 years, 80% of my food has been Soylent. By now, this video isn't impressive anymore.
Sometimes it's used in a fruit smoothie, sometimes I use alternatives to water for mixing it, like chocolate almond milk. But usually I just add those Mio flavors to it.
Before my doctor was prescribing supplements based on my blood tests, but now all my tests have been great.
Even if you just had 1 of the premade bottles a few times a week, you'd be helping to round out your diet if you're missing something in it.
So, I like the concept of cheap, and accessible food for the masses. I think that the guys intentions are clearly great.
$65 a week is not priced well for what he is selling. I know it's probably a product of the company being young and not having a great distribution network and all that but still, I can eat fairly healthy normal food for less then what his frankenshakes cost.
Also I feel like you should probably have more sanitary conditions for where you produce and package this stuff before you ever even put it on the market.
Otherwise I'm not really opposed to this as a concept. It's not for me, but I can recognize it's due largley to the fact that I'm privileged enough to have access to food without much issue. I'm sure if I was starving, I would rather have something like this then go without food all together.
there is about 1,001 things this guy doesn't understand about the human body and why this wouldn't work permanently like why eating seasonally is important and that eating the same thing all the time can create autoimmune disorders.
This is a sure shot shortcut to destruction and emerging from the stupidity thats on continuous raise!! If one tries this for couple of years, one can be sure of loosing Teeth, Jaws, Intestines, whole lot of other hormones and finally saliva. There you go, thats the beginning of a disaster - as you can expect from any utterly stupid idea like this one! Oh ya, I forgot to mention that You can be 80% prone to Cancer given that body without much saliva getting into body will ensure acidic body inventing new diseases like that of cancer!! Crazily stupid.
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
Submitting Payroll Reports.
There are three different ways to submit your payroll reports.
