Adapted from People Chow 3.0.1
The aim of this adaptation is to provide a more heart-friendly soylent, following Dean Ornish's and Caldwell Esselstyn's guidelines, the only diets proven to halt and reverse coronary artery disease. These regimens can also be used to prevent CAD.
For cardiac patients, there is no such thing as a carte blanche on "healthy fats," and fat intake should be limited to no more than around 10% of the total caloric intake. This recipe contains 12% fat, but only 3 grams per day of saturated fat; the remainder of the fats are unsaturated and omegas. Additionally, cholesterol should be less than 10 mg and sodium less than 1500 mg. I take 2 fish oil capsules for Omega-3 and -6 fats to compensate for the omission of the oil component used in Soylent, not for CAD reasons, but rather for their other general health benefits. Vitamin K does not meet US Gov DRI, but this is desirable in my case, as I am on anticoagulants.
I welcome feedback from folks, particularly any cardiac patients out there!
