FAQs for Fitness

How many days a week should I work out? 
Regarding workouts, it can be hard to know what is too little or too much. The answer will differ for everyone as we all have varying fitness goals. Still, experts recommend 30 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio activity a week or 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise three times a week. For strength training, give your muscles time to relax by limiting workouts to twice or three times per week. 

Whatever your routine, work out at your own pace and fill your body with nutrients to keep yourself healthy no matter what.
How do you get fit? 
Little changes can create incredible results. It can be as easy as moving more and sitting less. You can maintain your body by exercising daily and filling your body with suitable proteins (like our protein shakes). Consider a physical activity that brings you joy, like a daily run, hike, or yoga session.
What is the best pre-workout nutrition? 
A workout is only as good as the food that fuels you. Your body needs healthy carbs, proteins, vitamins, and even fats to keep itself working efficiently – all ingredients offered by our protein shakes. Keep your body happy and healthy with foods that fill out your nutrition.
How can I keep my energy levels high?
Taking on healthy habits can be easier said than done, especially with all the other responsibilities on your plate. 

Exercise, hydration, and nutrition are the most critical elements of keeping your energy up. You can energize your day by engaging in a daily walk or a full-body workout and consuming nutritious packed meals. Explore Soylent for nutritional options that may resonate with you. 

"Soylent has become a staple in my diet. Before I was worried about missing out on certain nutrients, especially before or after any sort of long distance cardio workouts. Over a year ago I started drinking a bottle everyday in the morning and another right after any sort of exercise . Now my body can recover much quicker. Highly recommended for vegetarians."

"This has been a welcome drink for after my workouts. It tastes better than any protein bars or whey shakes I've had, and it's nice to think that I'm getting some other extra nutrients as well. It's my reward for getting my sweat on :-)"

"I work out first thing in the morning before work. I leave just enough time to shower and change, but don't have enough time to prepare a healthy breakfast. I always keep a Soylent Cacao drink in the fridge to drink in my car on the way. It's got just the right amount of protein and other nutrients to keep me healthy and satisfied, and drinking it cold is delicious and refreshing, especially after a good sweat sesh."

"I use it as a pre- workout meal about 30-40 minutes ahead of time. I put one serving of a fruit-punch pre- workout powder in it and it tastes just like a bowl of a popular loop-shaped fruity cereal. It's pleasantly smooth, much smoother than older formulas. It's a permanent part of my diet for fueling workouts. I prefer the plain flavor so I can vary the pre- workout flavor, amount of caffeine, other supplements, etc."
