I’ve been thinking about nutrition recently and realised that if you tailor future foods to your own calorie-usage then you are actually losing nutrition.
The bags Jimmy Joy sell are meant to last one day, and contain 2100kcal. I am basically a couch-potato. I walk every day for about an hour, including a long uphill stretch, but that’s the limit of my exercise. If I eat a full bag every day, my weight goes up.
I have been eating (and being satisfied by) about a half portion every day for the last month, losing between 100g and 200g of weight every day, which is what I want as I am overweight.
However, this means that I am only getting 50% of the RDA of /everything/. So sometimes, I feel tired or weak or fuzzy-minded, and have to fix that by having a proper full day’s worth.
I know that it’s too much to ask for personalised bags catered to the nutritional requirement of every person, but an idea you might consider is to have some very low calorie bags that are still 100% RDA of all the micronutrients.
That way, if I find that 1800kcal is right for me, then I can mix a ratio of the full-on bag with a low-cal bag, and know that I’m not missing out.
