• Day One:
• Day Two:
• Day Three:
• Day Four:
• Day Five:
• Day Six Wrap up with Rob Rhinehart:

Could humans survive without solid food? The DNews team puts down their forks for a week to find out! For seven days, they consume only a highly nutritious shake called Soylent. Anthony sits down with Rob Rhinehart, the creator of Soylent who’s been living on the stuff for a month. Watch as Rob and the Dnews team outline the ups and downs of living in a post-food world.

Soylent details, ingredients:

“Two Months of Soylent”


“You know what’s a complete waste of time, money, and effort? Eating. Rob Rhinehart—a 24-year-old software engineer from Atlanta and, presumably, an impossibly busy man—thinks so.”

“Who Needs Food When You Have Soylent?”

“Add up all the time and money that you’ve spent this month on food — shopping for groceries, cooking, cleaning up, paying your grocery and restaurant bills — and you might be surprised at how much of your life is eaten by food.”

“Why Don’t We Have Food Replacement Pills?”

“From single pills providing a day’s nutrition to bubblegum that serves you a three-course dinner, bite-sized food replacements have been present in fiction for a long time. And the fuss all started with suffragette.”

DNews is a show about the science of everyday life. We post two new videos every day of the week.

The reason I drink Soylent is because when I wake up in the morning I’m not hungry yet which makes it hard for me to eat breakfast. That’s a problem because if I don’t eat, I’m going to be hungry at work. So I just chug a Soylent before I head off to work. It’s much easier that way. Then I eat regular food for lunch and dinner.

Moron. Dairy is not an essential nutrient. It's laden with cholesterol, hormones and antibiotics. Totally went against your own goal as soon as you mentioned the first ingredient, whey.
