A cheaper weight loss formula, with low iron content.
OK, I added a bunch of oil to the recipe. I swear, when I tried to live on the recipe, I went into starvation mode, and the only way I've been able to find to get out of it is either to add a lot of fat or carbs, so I chose fat. Should still lose a bunch of weight on it, haven't updated the nutritional info yet.
Changed carb source to oatmeal. None of the other carb options tasted tolerable, so I just eat the shake with a bowl of oatmeal (I chose oatmeal because It's low glycemic index and also widely available.
Update 08/2016 Even More Changes! To whit:
I've taken out the methionine (because it tasted terrible), and added egg white protein (a protein with a high sulfur content).
I've taken out the rice flour (again, it tasted terrible) and added waxy maize starch, which while tasteless at least doesn't taste actively bad.
Update 12/2015: Numerous changes:
I changed the soy protein to Bob's Red Mill, because it was more available. Once more, I got the nutritional info from the manufacturer.
I changed from flax oil to chia oil (chia oil tastes better)
I changed from Oat flour to sweet rice flour (the starch in sweet rice flour is more digestible)
I added apple fiber (a great source of pectin, a soluble fiber).
I added an enzyme to decompose the phytate.
I added some methionine (a sulfur amino acid).
I got the nutritional values for the soy protein from the manufacturer.
The value for 'sulfur' in the recipe is the mass of sulfur amino acids.
