So, if you missed it, they're beginning to post the final formula. The first of three posts explaining the new v1.0 contents can be found here, and it's all about macronutrients in this one: http://blog.soylent.me/post/68180382810/soylent-1-0-macronutrient-overview

Contradictory to what they told us, I received my Soylent before my starter kit.

Good News/Bad News.

Good News:
They are finally getting everything together at Soylent to finalize the processing and shipping.

Bad News:
You won't see any Soylent in 2013. They expect to be shipping in Jan. 2014

Well, this sucks...

To answer the most obvious question on your mind — we will not be ready to ship Soylent in August, and are pushing our ship date back to the end of September.

"Through the Internet grapevine, I learned about a lovely man named Rob Rhinehart. He had created a genius food substitute invention called ‘Soylent’, inspired by the soya-lentil hybrid in the book Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison. Being an intrepid adventurer in the realm of unusual foods, I immediately wanted to try it, and began to research anything and everything about the strange little drink. I soon discovered a recipe called ‘The Beginners DIY Soylent’, which was an independent version of Rhinehart’s formula. After cross referencing the ingredients and amounts, and tweaking them according to my needs (age, gender, dietary requirements, ect.) I felt I was ready."- +Nicole Cannavaro

Quality job! I was just going to scribble out my notes in crayon, take digital photos of them and start a tumblr myself :)

Heads up everybody! Please be careful when making SoyLent. I made my first batch today and had a mild allergic reaction. I suspect is was the fiber, as it's composed of plant material, but regardless, you are taking your health into your own hands so be careful!

About this community

It's a drink that has enough of every essential nutrient the human body needs, is incredibly cheap, and quite tasty. Soylent's hope is that it will make being healthy easier, cheaper, and accessible to more people.

Look what showed up on my doorstep this morning. I... wasn't expecting the box to be that large. For comparison, the cat is a 30 lb F1 Savannah.

Hello everyone!

Like all of you, the idea of a food replacement really fascinates me. Being based in the UK, it appears that it'll be a significant amount of time before I can even start to order official Soylent, so I thought I'd pop a quick post up to see if anyone can recommend any relatively simple DIY recipes?

I don't have access to any fancy supplements, other than common-or-garden vitamin pills that I could grind up in the blender, so I'm curious to know if anyone has actually worked on creating a home-brew recipe for those of us who don't have the ability to access all those cool nutritional ingredients.

Any help / advice / input would be greatly appreciated!

In an effort to better understand the speed at which Soylent’s carbohydrates are converted into sugar (glycemic index), Rob recently had a Dexcom G4 glucose monitor implanted in his chest

we have decided to ship all 1-month supply and higher orders first, and then begin shipping 1 and 2 week orders, starting with the earliest contributors.

Still no  confirmed ship date but this makes me feel better.

Any idea if shipping on Soylent pre-orders is expected in the beginning of August or closer to the end of the month?

I'm good with end of August, all the holidays and BBQ's will be over.  It'll be the end of Summer and a good time to switch to Soylent
