Post dating a legal form
There are no meats, fruits, vegetables, or breads here.Besides olive oil for fatty acids and table salt for sodium and chloride nothing is recognizable as food.I am pretty young, generally in good health, and remain physically and mentally active. I want to maintain it and spend less energy getting energy.I hypothesized that the body doesn’t need food itself, merely the chemicals and elements it contains. What if I consumed only the raw ingredients the body uses for energy?It tasted like a sweet, succulent, hearty meal in a glass, which is what it is, I suppose.I researched every substance the body needs to survive, plus a few extras shown to be beneficial, and purchased all of them in nearly raw chemical form from a variety of sources.The section on the ingredients ended up being quite long so I’ll save that for a future post.
I just want to be in good health and spend as little time and money on food as possible.I haven’t eaten a bite of food in 30 days, and it’s changed my life. It is an enormous market full of waste, regulation, and biased allocation with serious geo-political implications. In some countries people are dying of obesity, others starvation.In my own life I resented the time, money, and effort the purchase, preparation, consumption, and clean-up of food was consuming.
Would I be healthier or do we need all the other stuff that’s in traditional food?
If it does work, what would it feel like to have a perfectly balanced diet?
