I'll admit I haven't looked into it too much. I would be interested in how it compares to the health benefits of a varied diet which I recall being raised in another thread as for whatever reason being better for people than any 'ideal superfood'.

I would too, but everything I've been able to find has been extremely subjective, and ranged from "I went from wimp-tastic to MACHO MAN!  Also it turned me smarter faster and cooler than ever before!" to "I lost ALL THE FATS!!1!" to "This stuff made me sick and fart so much after one gulp i'm never touching it again!"

There are many people living off of it and reporting good things though, and I can't find any evidence of things having gotten medically unsafe or anything from anyone living on 100% soylent.

Indeed a nutrition study of something like Soylent vs a varied traditional "nutritious" diet, would be interesting to see.

Was the challenge in getting everyone fed primarily financial or did it have a large "I don't have time to assemble a nutritious meal" because if the available time is less of a factor, Nigel's point about equivalent nutrition being gained from rice, beans and collards may make that a preferable option?

Primarily financial, and of course you are correct.  Here in real life present time rice beans and other options are much cheaper and more useful in that sort of situation.  I was for some reason comparing free Soylent to having to buy food, and yeah i suppose that's pretty obviously going to weigh in the favor of anything free.

Thinking about this further, I guess I'm probably just one of the weirdos that would pay $255 a month if I had it, to replace most of the food I eat and ensure I have all the nutrition I need.  I find myself becoming more and more afraid of my own mortality as I get older, and wanting to maximize my time here.  This seems a much simpler solution than the crazy lists I was making when trying to learn what to eat and what to avoid for maximum nutrition and minimum get-sick-and-die.
Your digestive system/immune system needs a good punch in the nuts every once in a while to stay strong. Too much regularity kills.

I was looking into the possibility a couple of months back. Best info I got was "eat lots of plants" Ssrsly. Diet is much more plant filled now. Effects are slight but noticable. All positive.
