We don’t want you to think of Soylent as an all-or-nothing proposition, a diet plan, or a trendy cleanse. Instead, think of Soylent as an antidote for the “food void.” A food void is any time you’re stuck without access to a good, quality meal. We’re not trying to replace the meals you love, but rather to save you from dining on a vending machine lunch or spending $10 on a limp salad or greasy cheeseburger.

Most people find success replacing a few meals a week — often starting with breakfasts (check out our Cafe Mocha), or keeping a few bottles of Soylent on hand for when life gets busy. Some use Soylent for just about every meal, except when dining out or with friends, while others grab a bottle from the store when they’re on the go. See what works best for you!
