The major complaint with the Bachelorette Chow series is the texture. The oat flour seemed to give it a definite... lumpiness... that was hard to get around. The Chocolate Silk recipe uses rice flour instead, and the texture is unbelievable.
Silky and smooth, this formulation is also high in flavor because it uses a boatload of cocoa powder to make up for the rice flour's lack of iron and fiber. The result is an intensely flavored, immensely healthy chocolate milk clone that tastes too good to be true.
1/5/15 — Went AWOL for a minute, sorry. Hallo! Back now. I did do a 30-day diet last October and it went very well. Had labs done throughout to make sure my body wasn't falling apart, and everything looked good normal. Lost 10 lbs, too. Felt great.
The real obstacle to the all-Soylent diet is honestly the mental one. It takes a couple weeks before it clicks and your brain accepts the liquid diet. After you get over the hump, though, it feels good.
I have an event in April I want to look good for, so I'm back on the sauce. I'll drop in periodically to let you know how it goes.
- The whey protein is the Vanilla flavor. With all the cocoa, chocolate flavored would be too strong.
- It's best to LET IT SIT a couple hours, preferably overnight before drinking. This lets the masa relax and thicken, so it's not like drinking sand.
- Get a blender bottle (or 2 or 3) and shake it up when drinking to keep your Soylent reasonably mixed. You don't want to get to the end of your pitcher and realize you got dregs to munch on. Keep it well mixed.
- I make a couple weeks' worth at a time and store it in a big 10-gal bucket with a top I got @ Walmart. Works great. Conversion is 3 cups + 3 Tbsp of the mix + 2 Liters of water/day.
- YES you can add the oil into the mix. I was hesitant to do so @ first for fear it might go rancid, but I kept forgetting to add the oil later and would wind up starving! It's fine for a month or so at least. I haven't tested the upper limits.
- It's good to run the bulk mixture through a food processor so it's evenly mixed, especially if you add the oil in.
- IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT to get powdered versions of ingredients over tablets. There's a choline caplet with powder inside that is like $2 more on iHerb, but SO worth it (no grinding!) Also, never never never run out of Potassium Gluconate powder. You do not want to be caught grinding up an entire bottle of tabs from the drugstore. Misery.
- I see some folk having concerns about the niacin in here, which is understandable, but I haven't had adverse effects. The upper limit according to the DRI preset is 35 mg and this recipe contains 35.138 mg (not a lot over). Niacin therapy is regularly used for cholesterol treatment, and those doses are 2-3 grams or more — many times what's in this recipe. The symptom of taking too much niacin? Your face gets flushed.
