Low calories. Idea?


yeah. but my original point was that if there is a very low cal version (let’s say 1000kcal), it would be easy to build the right ratio.

take a 2100 bag (the normal bag), mix with 1000kcal, divide into two separate containers, each containing a day’s worth of 1550kcal, with exactly the right proportion of nutrition (or as close as Jօylent comes to it)

take two 2100s and one 1000. mix and divide into three containers. 1733kcal each.

for more exact kcal results, you would need more exact ratios.


That’s indeed one way to do it! We’ll probably stick to complete meal replacement products, but it’s indeed a smart workaround :slight_smile:


I am also interested in low calories shakes!


I would also interested in the Lower Calorie Version. What would also be good, if you could order the Nutrients and the Calorie Part of the Powder in different bags and mix it yourself for your liking, so you can mix the amount of Calories you want with your nutrients into your shakes.


The point would be to make the regular shakes complete for people who need fewer calories. Something like 1 tbsp micro+fiber mix containing equivalent micronutrients to 100 calories of the shake (or whatever specific measures work out best,) so it would be a nice simple conversion to complete the nutrition for any calorie level.

I guess it would depend on how much variability there is among people who want lower-calorie versions. If there’s a particular calorie level for a “light” version that would do it for most people, then the micromix add-on wouldn’t really be relevant.


I hear what you’re saying here! I’ll definitely link our food technologist to this topic, so he can read your ideas.


yes, I will also be interested in low calories shakes!


I agree with @Metalmuehle and @Kae, just offer one additional product (e.g. 1000kcal) in one flavour (e.g. vanilla or perhaps the neutal flavour people have been asking for) and let people mix it however they want with the other PlennyShakes, or blended with other foods. It should still meet the same RDA as one packet of PlennyShake, but with less Calories.

You could even hold a naming contest in line with Plenny and Twenny. BlennyShake* for blending? SkennyShake* on the skim side? Or just HalfplennyShake, since a halfpenny is a thing.

Quite a few of us I’m sure are taking less PlennyShake than we should because we don’t burn 2100 kcal a day.

*If the ‘enny’ part isn’t crucial then BlendyShake and SkinnyShake may sound nicer


I am also very interested in a low calories (daily count of 1300 kcal) version of Plenny shake!

Having a side complement for vitamins does not look too much a hassle, if necessary.


@isabel did you get any feedback from the food technologist, or the rest of the team who have an impact in this?

I’ve been cutting heavily lately and losing weight, but even before that I could never finish a whole bag in a day. I think there are a lot of potential customers who want to eat healthily but sparsely, or want to have normal food in-between, and can’t because JJ only targets 2100kcal.


@pseudonymous Yes, we are taking it in consideration! We planned a temporary (at least for starters, maybe permanent if its a hit) version which is low on calories, can’t say when, but somewhere in 2018 .



Good to hear! If you cannot hint as to when, do you have an idea about what kind of calorie target it might aim at, and perhaps, which flavour?


Difficult to say yet, we first have to look what the options are for lowering the carbs etc.


Same here. Not trying to loose weight, but my appetite is very low in the mornings. I cannot tolerate a full JJ serving in the morning, while I have no problem at lunch and/or dinner time. Ultimately, there might be many reasons why people would want to use less powder, and it would indeed be nice if there was a version with less powder/calories, but the same nutritional content.

Glad to know the JJ staff is working on a low-calory version already! :slight_smile:


I’d love a low calorie Plenny Shake too. Preferably neutral flavour.


Hey Pseudonymous,

Next limited edition is going to be low calorie 1, i’m not gonna tell the flavor but calorie amount will be around 325 kcal per 100 gram.


That’s great news! I think an (edit for 500g: )1625kcal per day intake will be ideal for many :slight_smile: Or will the package also be smaller? :open_mouth:


Hi pseudonymous! Glad to hear you’re still excited :smiley: The package will not be smaller, it will be a 500 gram bag containing five meals of 325 kcal :slight_smile:


I notice the new light variants are limited edition :open_mouth: are you guys still gauging interest? I’d love to see them become a permanent option!


A limited Edition is also a test whether the product works or not. If people really like it, we will take it into consideration to make it permanent.
