Ensure has a few different products, so my assessment may be wrong in some places. If so, please point it out. I'll primarily base this product as representing Ensure. Here are a few thoughts:

  1. Cost - the above product is $13 for 7 servings. Sounds reasonable, until you realize 1 serving has 250 Cal. To meet the rec'd 2000 Cal, you'd have to have the entire tub + a bit more. The liquid 16 pack on amazon actually looks a bit cheaper at around $10 a day (not including shipping) if we're considering just meeting calorie needs. Soylent is supposed to cost just a few dollars a day. We'll see if that's the case when it is released, but there are definitely recipes out there that come in well under $10 a day. Ensure plus seems to come close under $10 a day, but is still something like double what Rob claims the final product will cost.
  2. 100% daily needs really means 100% - Ensure claims it is "balanced" but going off the above calculation (8 servings a day for 2000 Cal) you'd have x8 on all nutrients. Just take a look at Ensure's nutrition information, and you'll see that the majority of nutrients multiplied x8 come in well over 100% or well under. There's zero fiber. Not enough potassium. Too much of most of the vitamins. Soylent is meant to be a scientifically formulated product that has the recommended amount of everything, and were there is a lack of information on a nutrient, a well researched and informed amount.
  3. Ingredients - The primary ingredient in regular Ensure is corn syrup, which may be tastier than oat powder or maltodextrin, but isn't as good for you. The primary oil is corn oil, which also isn't as good for you as olive oil.
  4. Underlying idea - Soylent is meant to replace meals if someone wants to use it that way (I personally don't, but I'd like to have some for the option of an easy breakfast or lunch if I'm feeling lazy). Ensure is meant to be a supplement or stop gap between diets. You may scoff at this, but that means there is a diy and self-experimental community around the product which aims to make it better and helps keep members safe. Without a doubt, there will be someone more committed to their soylent diet than you. If they run into problems with it, or come up with solutions, they're likely to share them on reddit or on other forums. The community can also answer questions, as I'm doing for you, and upvote/downvote/reply as they see fit. If you called Abbott laboratories up with this question I'd doubt you'd get satisfactory answers.

The reviews are so funny. You can hear "bottom voice" / "gaybro voice" in every one (except the str8 guy one which is naturally the one with the most upvotes)

I recommend taking a soluble fiber, such as Psyllium Husk or Acaica Senegal!

They expand to ~10x their dry-volume in water (e.g. - in your stomach) & they slow digestion.

Effect: More full + full longer (win + win)

Dosage: I take ~5-10g/Fiber with a meal (this depends on the size of the meal and how much water I'm drinking - bigger meal = more fiber), usually 2x daily. Works great for me and my wife.

Tips: Drink extra water when you take soluble fibers; they absorb a lot of water. I'd recommend ~2oz water/1g of fiber.

u/WerkRoom · 5 pointsr/TooAfraidToAsk

I’m gay and get fucked up the butt quite a bit so I think I can offer some advice.

First off, what you wanna do is buy this and this.

The enema bulb is pretty easy to use. You fill it
up with warm water and insert the tip into the asshole. Squeeze the water completely into the rectum, hold it in for a couple minutes (or however long is she’s comfortable), and release the water back into the toilet. This will loosen up any residual poop that might be in the rectum and bring it out when the water is expelled. Repeat the process another time or two or until whenever the water is coming out clear and free of any poop.

Now, as far as the fiber supplement goes, THAT is where the magic is. This will help clean the digestive track really well so that not no poop is left behind. I swear by it and I recommend it to anyone and everyone who is interested in anal sex.

I personally take the men’s version but this stuff works so well that I’ve actually had unexpected anal plenty of times because I felt confident that I was clean enough for penetration even without douching first. Granted, if I know I’m having sex, I do prefer to douche beforehand, just to be extra safe, but this supplement has never let me down. Worth every penny.

Just read the reviews for yourself. I think the men’s version has better reviews overall because it was originally designed and marketed for gay men since we’re the ones always engaging in anal sex. The women’s version is exactly the same thing except that the capsules are smaller.

Some other tips:

Use lube. Lots and lots of it.

If your girl is into drinking alcohol, it would help her relax quite a bit if she gets buzzed first. Marijuana would do the trick too if she’s a smoker.

And if you are into it, licking/eating her ass during foreplay would stimulate that area a whole lot. It helps relax the butthole and it would probably turn her on to the idea of anal even more. By doing that, you’re basically “making the hole hungry” as we say in the gay community.

Hope this helps and best of luck to both of you!

u/candre23 · 4 pointsr/keto

No kids here, just lazy. Here is what my daily meal plan looks like when my give-a-fuck meter is on empty:

Breakfast: Half a tub of cottage cheese.

Lunch: Usually nothing, but if I really feel like eating, I make a protein shake. Scoop of this, scoop of this, and a spoonful of instant coffee for flavor/caffine in ~20oz of water. Shake it up in a blender bottle and you're golden.

Dinner: Stick of pepperoni or chorizo and a hunk of cheese. Alternately, if I've made a big batch of taco meat lately, I'll just re-heat a bowl full with cheese melted into it and eat it with a spoon.

Obviously this is not a "balanced" diet by any stretch, so I suppliment it with vitamins. I take a multi, a magnesium, and a calcium every morning. It's also woefully short on fiber, so I don't recommend this regime for for weeks at a time. However, for me personally, it works just fine.

Many of the local chain supermarkets have it, Vons, Ralphs. Local pharmacies do as well. But me? I don't like interacting with humans, so I just buy it on Amazon.

u/uglybutterfly025 · 2 pointsr/ibs

they do work really good! I'll take them at like the first signs of general discomfort after a meal and once it kicks in I usually dont have any other problems. you have to get ones that are special coated so that the peppermint releases in your intestines and not your stomach. this is the one that i buy

Are Metamucil capsules (Metamucil Multi-Health Fiber Capsules by Meta, 160 Count (Pack of 2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001G7QVAE/) as effective as the original coarse mixin (Metamucil Multi-Health Fiber by Meta, Original Coarse Sugar 114 Teaspoons 29 Oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0013I4WJS/)? Thanks in advance!

u/Kinkthrowaway9521 · 1 pointr/BadDragon

I take 2 pills of fibercon tablets after every meal. I also generally eat lots of rice which is supposed to help.

Coffee in the morning is helpful for getting the gut moving. Do some reading about different kinds of fiber supplements and foods to help keep you regular. It's not just a help for your extracurricular activities, but also nice for your daily life.

Edit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0000VLWZQ?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

That should be the tablets I take. I'm on mobile. Otherwise search for fibercon on amazon.

u/PorgiAmor · 1 pointr/fatpeoplestories

> Go to a fucking dietitian, not a goddamn nutritionist. A dietitian is trained in nutrition but has an actual degree and is accredited and licensed.

Person I've gone to is an RD. Two of them, in fact. One was in the context of an eating disorder program at a local hospital. This is before I went bulimic, but they considered obesity as an eating disorder too.


OK, is "intentional caloric restriction" better?

> I'm assuming the problem with your "diets," is that you weren't really filling up on low-calorie foods; you craved these things because you weren't really making a lifestyle change

And you would assume wrongly. I can fill up on fiber and vegetables and fruits and even psyllium fiber-husks capsules (no net calories! I did and still do swallow them by the handful at least once a day), but that doesn't work for long. Take my last serious weight-loss attempt/lifestyle-change attempt: I dropped 78 lbs in a year and kept it off for a year-and-a-half using an RD-prescribed diabetic exchange diet. I was upset when I discovered that even when eating low-to-moderate fat and fiber-rich high-volume low-calorie foods I didn't get "filled up" for very long, even with moderate amounts of protein; hungry again like clockwork 1.5-to-2 hrs after eating, every time. Which is OK during the day, but not at night.

I always had terrible hunger at night, almost every damn night, while on that plan (1200-1400 kcals/day). Not just mild hunger pangs, but hunger pangs that kept me from falling asleep. And those nighttime hunger pangs never went away, over the course of two and a half years, either. And on bad nights, it led me to bingeing on almond butter or jars of olives, and sometimes throwing them up too. Which is the largest part of why I gave up that particular 'lifestyle change".

This is actually making me think about paleo, given that the fat content of that diet/eating plan is so high. Maybe I could find satiation on that plan. But first I have to come to terms with the idea of giving up sugar forever. So I bought a couple paleo cookbooks and hubby and I have been trying some of the recipes for dinner.

>Once it becomes a mindset to feed your body amazing things that will support your cellular functions and make you beautiful inside and out, you really put better options on a pedestal and treat yourself every one and a while; in moderation.

Not everybody can do "moderation". My brain does not do "moderation" very well. As one of my fellow bipolars said last time I was in group therapy at the funny farm, "I am AMPLIFIED". There is a strong link between obesity and mental illness, incidentally. The "moderation" problem may be one reason why.

>That said, have you gotten professional therapy for your eating addiction?

Yes, thanks for asking. My first enrollment in the hospital-based outpatient program was back in 1997, actually, and that's where I was first diagnosed with depression (which is actually bipolar) and put on psychotropic meds for the first time. Have not seen an RD since 2008. The latest advice I've gotten from current therapist (a LCSW, not an RD) and my new primary care doctor is to avoid food-restricting.

u/TehShrike · 1 pointr/fasting

I take 4-5 of these daily https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00013Z128/ and continue to do so during the first 3-4 days of a fast.

u/gizram84 · 1 pointr/Bitcoin

I just did a little price comparison.

Soylent is $70 a month for 7 bags. Each bag is 444g. That's a cost of 2.25 cents a gram.

Ensure powder is $8.99 for a 397 gram package. That's 2.26 cents a gram.

I'm extremely surprised that the price is almost identical.

Now, I'm sure you can get a bulk discount on ensure, but I think there are cheaper payment plans for Soylent too.

All very interesting nonetheless.

u/choochoothegaintrain · 1 pointr/steroids

I recently got a grown-up blender and have been making the most fire bedtime shakes:

  • 40g vanilla casein
  • a banana
  • scoop of PB2
  • scoop of fiber
  • scoop of lecithin
  • a little fairlife milk, water & ice

    and the piece de resistance is a tablespoon of non-diastatic malt. it makes your protein shake a malt shake!
u/LetsGoEatHonk · 1 pointr/dxm

Thank you for your responses, I appreciate your continued explanation.

I've endured a long and difficult relationship with psychoactives. I first took DXM 7 years ago, and I have since run the gamut. Drug combinations, dosing methods, kitchen extractions, you name it-- I've done it. In other words, learned the hard way. I think this may be why I have such reverence for your approach. I am humbled by your thoughtfulness.

Note: this post is very, very long.

My method:

Preparation begins several days in advance. Like you, I have obligations that necessitate some schedule-shuffling. In many ways, this makes the experience feel more like a vacation; it's a special occasion, so I treat it like a holiday.

I abstain from alcohol and other drugs for at least 72 hours before the trip. As you mention, hydration is key to basic health, and this is a component of the days leading up to the trip. If I haven't been hydrating well, this is my chance to catch up.

I clean my environment fully. I dust, vacuum, mop, and sanitize my bedroom. I clear rubbish and generally tidy any areas I might enter around the time of the trip, such as the bathroom, kitchen, and living room.

I make sure to eat plenty of fiber, protein, and nutrient-rich foods like nuts, leafy green vegetables, and fish. If I can't get fish, I make sure I take a good amount of high quality fish or cod liver oil. I practice a high-fat, adequate-protein diet; basically, it's a modified ketonic diet. I usually take in 1-2 tbsp of cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil once or twice a day both for its health benefits and for increased absorption of other chemicals. However, I skip this on DXM day, which I'll explain later. I have a wide range of supplements I take as well. These include micronized creatine, HMB, a multivitamin, and a number of nootropics. My nootropic stack varies depending on whether I have to work or not, but usually includes piracetam, aniracetam, ashwagandha; sometimes I add phenibut and/or phenylpiracetam.

The day before the trip, I exercise-- hard. I push myself to my absolute limits with calisthenics, weightlifting, and cardio. If I have the time for it, I will go for 2-3 hours split up throughout the day. I find that this accomplishes two things: 1) I achieve a deeper state of rest the night before and 2) I have considerably less anxiety about the trip. At night, I take ZMA. This contains a form of magnesium, but I've never had any issues with interactions. I'm pretty certain that the peak levels of magnesium occur sometime during the night, but I would recommend caution when using magnesium supplements within 24 hours of DXM use. As I have said many times before, every body is different and every brain is different. Your mileage may vary.

u/thewanderer0 · 1 pointr/gainit

You can read about the active ingredient here. Seems interesting. The wiki page has some other good info too.

You can also get it cheaper than clear muscle here and also in bulk powder it looks like from some other manufacturers.

u/mooreu · 1 pointr/tressless

I use spiro topically not internally. It worked very well years ago but it doesn't seem to have the same affect as I get older.

I'm in the US. I ordered this EC powder on Amazon and it was shipped from Korea. I used to use EC capsules (160 mg) from Ortho Nutrition but taking 2/day ended up being costly.


u/chadcf · 1 pointr/90daysgoal

Juice is pretty much sugar, with some vitamins thrown in. It's the fiber that really makes sugar/carbs 'better', and juicing throws the fiber right out. Also I'll note that juicers are a pain to clean...

I would recommend smoothies instead. I blend up almond milk, spinach and frozen fruit. Add some chia seeds or flax for extra fiber, and a scoop of unsweetened protein powder and you've basically got a nicely balanced low calorie meal, and blenders are easier to clean. My go to is two handfuls of spinach, 1C of unsweetened almond milk and 1C of mixed frozen tropical fruit (available at any grocery store), plus half a scoop of jarrow unsweetened protein powder and a spoonful of greek yogurt. It looks pretty unappealing but is quite tasty.

If you do decide to juice I'd chase it with some Super Seed to get some fiber back in. You can mix that in with the juice too but it gels up pretty quick so I just mix it with water and chug it straight.

u/FocusFlukeGyro · 1 pointr/keto

I recommend Centrum chewables because they are more easily absorbed by the body. I heard that sometimes regular multivitamins pass through the body largely undigested which is why I prefer the chewable kind. Also, I take a potassium supplement as well as a heaping tablespoon of fiber powder every day. For anyone interested, a convenient carb free way to take the fiber powder is to mix it in a blender with a can of diet root beer (I use A&W) with a 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream and two packets of Splenda. It tastes like a melted root beer float (i.e. delicious) and you hardly notice the fiber.

u/RobotPixie · 1 pointr/ketogains

There’s a company called troo health that make a product called “a spoon full of fibre” the chocolate one is amazing and will have you on the loo in no time. There’s also very low carbs in it.

I’m not sure if it’s sold outside the U.K. yet but if not maybe you can find a similar inulin syrup where you are, I found this powder which you could add to food no idea what it would taste like though

u/cwq1 · 1 pointr/keto

This lady knows what she's talking about...take a look at the pictures of the stuff she makes and it looks like the real thing!

ketoluna - the Inulin Fiber looks to be the priciest ingredient, the one you use lists Inulin Soluble Fiber as the only ingredient, do you think this alternative is the same stuff when it lists Inulin FOS? If it works, it would cut the cost in half for that item.

u/johnny-utah-busey · 1 pointr/StackAdvice

With what ya go going you're covering your bases in a smart cheap way.

Creatine can be a little helpful but I ultimately stopped using it just because (1) It's annoying to have to remember to take it every day since its in powder form and (2) While I only retain a small amount of water while on it, it all goes to my face.

I had no real strength loss after I stopped, in fact I put 40lbs on my deadlift while cutting, all other lifts remained stalled (The stall is mostly because of cutting + substituting lifting for MMA training).

At the same time, regular old Creatine Monohydrate is dirt cheap, so try it if you want. Just be sure to get one that's made with Creapure creatine. Here's what I used

Whey protein can always be helpful for getting in extra protein quickly.

I really like these brands for protein because they taste nice, and give you a good bang for your buck:

u/Waterrat · 1 pointr/ibs

I like Ironman Perform. I used to have GI issues with other stuff, but I don't with this. Also, it has a good deal of salt in it, so I don't need to worry about added salt unless I'm doing a full iron.

u/dclutter1 · 1 pointr/bjj

A lot of people rave about Animal Flex. It's got G & C plus a few other things like Curcumin, and some vitamins.

I've never really noticed a difference from taking G & C tbh, but it's worth a try to see if it works for you. And the animal stuff is just the first thing that came to mind, I'm sure you can find cheaper options.

u/audiblesugar · 0 pointsr/Guitar

You say "used ice daily". However, my feeling is that you're not using it enough. What I do is fill a lemonade pitcher fucking full of cold water and ice so you can submerge up to your forearm and the water doesn't overflow. Keep it there as long as you can. At first, this will only be like 10 seconds, but you'll be able to get this up to a few minutes. Have a towel for when you get out of the cold icy water. Let your hand/arm dry, then go back in. Do this five or ten times while watching tv etc. It really gets your heart going!

Couple this by purchasing a 44-pack tub of "Animal Flex" and take down like 4 of those fuckers a day. Bonus points if you take a teaspoon of MSM powder and mix it with a glass of water once per day.

I'd also suggest tai chi and qigong for RSI's.

Take this shit seriously.
