Looks like this is debatable, but as a nutritious time & money saver, I imagine it's something that Tynan has already researched. What do you guys think?
My energy level had skyrocketed at this point, I felt like a kid again. But on day 3 I noticed my heart was racing and my energy level was suddenly dropping. Hemoglobin! I think, my heart is having trouble getting enough oxygen to all my organs. I check my formula and realize iron is completely absent. I quickly purchase an iron supplement and add it to the mixture the next day. I have to be more careful not to leave anything out.
This paragraph is worrysome. Two days without any iron intake are not enough to produce a iron definincy. Red blood cells have a half-life of 50-55 days. Everyone who knows much about nutrition should know that there won't be a effect from 2-3 days without iron. If you market your product to a health conscious audience it's strange to have "soy" in the name when there no soy in the product.
This means that the guy isn't someone who's nutrition expertise I would hold as an authority.for the amount that we need of various substances.
For others such as K, P, Ca, Mg, check your local lab supply store or university
This seems again naive. I wouldn't trust those substances to have a high bioavailability when you buy them straight from the lab supply store.
In general I find the idea however interesting. I wouldn't switch my whole nutritition permanently for supplements but doing it every second day seems plausible.
for a quick, but natural, non-synthetic approach to food, look up "juice feasting" or the "fat sick and nearly dead" documentary. you can blend a lot of fruits and vegetables into a juice. i'm sure most who have read steve pavlina are familiar with this, but it's a similar alternative, so i just shout it out there. http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2008/10/juice-feasting/
i think rob's approach can theoretically work. but really good nutrition is the coming together of thousands of components, which can be hard for him to manufacture and sell at a price that helps him make reasonable profit.

Haha... two secret posts in a row. I have a mental list of stories I want to write here, and somehow this one had slipped off of it. Luckily, a UT Grad who goes by "The Reel Deal" posted a comment reminding me about the story. So here it goes, with a little history first.
I never thought I'd go to UT (The University of Texas, not Tennessee). Ever since I was in middle school, I always knew that I'd go to MIT - it was where the smart geeky people went, and I was one of them. When it came time to do applications for schools, I mailed two of them. One for MIT and one for WPI, a lesser known technical school in Massachusetts. I had abysmal grades, due in a large part to my refusal to do most homework and having never actually studied for a test. I always thought it was interesting to see how much of the material I'd naturally retained. Let's just say it usually wasn't over 80%.
