Just Joylent for six months, still alive?


Lee Primeau has just spent the last six months eating nothing but Joylent, and drinking nothing but water, tea, and decaf-coffee. I’ve got major issues with the decaf, but live and let live, and it doesn’t matter for the sake of his experiment (seriously though, decaf? How does he function!?)

Lot’s of us have lived on ‘lents for months at a time, plenty going way beyond 6 months, but what makes Lee’s experience special is that he’s a BSc Food and Nutrition student with the University of Alabama. Not only does he lov the idea of future foods – he has burgeoning professional skills to fill in some of the gaps that are out there around the potential nutritional risks for longer term ‘lent use.

“I truly believe that these type of foods, are foods of the future. As a nutritional business owner (and current dietetic student) I am bombarded with questions from people about how to lose weight, stay healthy and live long nutrition filled lives. I think the answer to many of our nutritional woes can be found in products like Joylent and Pulve.”

The blood tests Glucose Levels, Urea Nitrogen, Creatinine, eGFR, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Calcium, Protein Total, Albumin, A/G Ratio, Bilirubin Total, ALT (SGPT) Alkaline Phosphatase, Uric Acid, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Lipid Panel, Cholesterol, Vitamin B – so, extensive, and the data it revealed is’really interesting.

Weight, cholesterol and blood sugar levels were all recorded at positive levels throughout, Vitamin B12 was too high and Vitamin D a bit low, but Lee addresses both in his blog, and it’s well worth a read.
