clinically tested to maintain weight and prevent malnutrition

UCLA Health's groundbreaking 3-year clinical trial suggests Soylent could revolutionize nutritional maintenance protocols for patients facing health challenges.

how Soylent can help

caloric density

During health treatments, some individuals may experience reduced appetites or increased energy expenditure. For successful weight gain, a shake's caloric density (calories per unit volume) becomes crucial. High caloric density shakes allow for consumption of the required calorie surplus in a smaller volume, promoting better compliance and mitigating feelings of excessive fullness which can hinder overall intake.

macronutrient profile

A balanced macronutrient profile is essential. Protein is vital for muscle synthesis and repair, especially important during recovery from health treatments. Adequate carbohydrates provide readily available energy, while healthy fats contribute satiety and essential fatty acids. Look for shakes formulated with a balance of these macronutrients, with protein content often being a primary focus for weight gain.

micronutrient content

Certain health treatments can affect micronutrient absorption. Shakes that are fortified with a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals can help ensure adequate intake and support overall health during treatment.

personalized considerations

Health treatments can cause varying side effects like nausea, taste changes, or digestive sensitivity. Choose shakes with flavor profiles and ingredient lists that align with your individual tolerances and preferences. Consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian for guidance on finding a shake that best suits your specific needs.

FAQs for weight gain

How many calories do I need?
This is the most fundamental question, as weight gain requires a calorie surplus. The answer depends on individual factors like metabolism, activity level, and health status. A healthcare professional can calculate personalized recommendations. With each Soylent complete meal shake containing 400 calories you can decide with your healthcare team how many shakes you need to meet your goals.
What's the best protein source?
Soy protein isolate is an ideal protein source for weight gain shakes during health treatments and recovery due to its complete amino acid profile and easy digestibility, promoting efficient muscle building and minimizing digestive upset.
How often should I drink weight gain shakes?
1. Determine your daily calorie surplus goal: Aim for an additional 300-500 calories per day on top of your maintenance calorie needs to facilitate weight gain.
2. Calculate how many shakes contribute to that surplus: If your shake provides 400 calories, one or two a day might fit your goals.
3. Balance with whole foods: Ensure the rest of your diet is nutrient-rich, with whole foods forming the foundation of your nutrition.
Important: Consulting a healthcare professional or registered dietitian is crucial for determining a personalized and safe plan for weight gain, especially during health treatments or recovery.
Can weight gain shakes help me gain muscle, not just fat?
Nutrition shakes like Soylent, when combined with regular exercise, can facilitate weight gain in the form of lean muscle mass by providing a convenient source of balanced macronutrients, including the protein necessary for muscle building and repair.

"Soylent has been a huge game changer for me. You can use it to lose weight , gain weight , or just maintain a healthy diet while living a busy lifestyle. I personally lost 60lbs (I was heavily overweight, now at my goal weight !) utilizing Soylent. I was able to hit my macros and micros every single day using Soylent, which also tastes amazing. It kept me full and satisfied, it's economical, it's environmentally friendly and it's healthy. Soylent is the future!"

"I have come to rely on Original Soylent Drink for most meals. I never feel hungry, and the original Soylent has a mild flavor and sweetness that doesn't trigger cravings. I've struggled with weight control issues all my life; Since adding this to my regular routine, the excess weight reduced effortlessly, and a new healthier weight has become my new normal. Soylent is not a weight loss product per as, but when your body knows it will get what it needs, it will stop hoarding all on it's own."

"My 14 year old son had a huge growth spurt and needs to gain weight ... When he started, he was 5'10" and 110 pounds. He also is super active and runs track and bikes to and from school.... I have been looking for ways to add extra calories to his diet without loading him up on crap. I have tried other things... but he always gets too full before finishing his food. I started making him shakes with these using 2 scoops (400 calories) and added some protein bars to his diet so he can ultimately double his calories intake overall without filling up on candies or cookies. He has gained 5 pounds within the month with the help of this... He likes the taste as well which is a huge positive."

Complete Meal Powder

"I've lost 17 pounds in 6 weeks with Soylent. At first I only drank one a day, and ate two meals. But, a couple of weeks later, I started drinking two a day and eating a small meal. For flavor, I highly recommend the Mocha: it tastes like something you get from Starbucks, plus has caffeine. I also recommend the Original and Creamy Chocolate flavors. I'm well on my way to losing 50 lbs thanks to Soylent. So glad I found this product. Very much worth the money."
