Too Funny…

While sipping my a.m. coffee, I stumbled on over an article from The League of Ordinary Gentlemen, about a blogger who thinks he’s invented the perfect alternative to food.

Yes… you read that right. An alternative to food. SRSLY.

The author of the “League” article, Russell Saunders, is a pediatrician, so he knows a thing or two about human physiology, nutritional needs, blood tests and… medical food products that already do exactly what the blogger is attempting to do, which means he’s basically re-inventing the wheel.

Dr. Saunders’ take is on this is pretty amusing.

Hey, everybody! Here’s a fun little medical quiz for today. Can anyone tell me what the sharp whitish pointy things in your mouth are called?

Did you say “teeth”? Excellent. Pat yourself on the back. Does anyone know why we have them?

Did you say “to eat things”? Strong work. Have a biscuit.

Why am I asking these questions, which my preschooler would find bleedingly obvious were I to put them to him? Because apparently there is a man out there who wants to render them superfluous.

LOL. If you could use a good giggle (and a dose of common sense), check out the rest of “Please Do Not Volunteer For This Study.”

  1. You have got to be kidding me. Is this guy really serious? I would just love the thought of drinking my “soylent” for every meal.

    • It reminds me of the Velocity Diet – which was heavily promoted by T-Nation/T-Muscle/Whatever-They’re-Calling-Themselves-Now some years ago. As I recall, that was more “food-like,” in the sense that the shakes contained things like protein powder and ground flax seeds, but the intent was the same: to take eating solid food out of the equation and subsist on shakes that supplied 100% of your nutritional needs.

      No one that I knew who tried it lasted more than two weeks before they “broke” – the monotony of the shakes and the desire for real food overwhelmed their resolve.
