This recipe is for resistance-training athletes who want lots of protein with fewer carbs than most soylent recipes include. This soylent does not include enough carbs for high-volume aerobic work -- endurance athletes and cardio lovers beware, you'll need to add plenty of carbohydrate!
There are two goals for this recipe:
- Improve body composition by enhancing growth of muscle mass while minimizing gains in fat
- Speed CNS and bodily recovery from strenuous exercise by providing plenty of nutritional value and caloric energy
I intend this to be useful for beginning and intermediate bodybuilders and powerlifters. It's designed to be compatible with mild to moderate-intensity bulking and cutting phases by supplying enough protein and vitamins to aid recovery even if you change the amount of calories. You can do so by adding or reducing dextrose, oat flour, oil, and soy protein isolate -- but don't alter the amount of Lean Body MRP powder because it contains most of the vitamins in this recipe!
This recipe would require more significant modifications to be appropriate for advanced bodybuilders or powerlifters, especially those who use AAS, so I wouldn't recommend it if that describes you.
Please note that if you cut the sugar to a very low level you may need to sweeten the recipe to taste using sucralose. If you object to sucralose, you could instead use stevia or a sugar alcohol like xylitol.
You can enhance the taste by adding powdered cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, or allspice.
