Not everyone's taste

并非人人都好这一口


Have you ever imagined that one day everything your body needs will come in powder form and all you have to do is add water?

你是否曾设想过有那么一天,人体所需摄入的所有营养素都可以以粉末状形式出现,而你要做的只是把它调入水里?


Soylent, a drink developed by a group of US engineers, claims it can do just that.  It can provide your body with all the nutrients it needs and for as long as you want, you don't have to eat any other food.  This April, Soylent shipped its first batch of products to consumers in the US.

一个美国的工程师团队开发了一种新的精力饮料Soylent,声称可以做到这点。这种精力饮料能够随时随地地提供人体所需的所有营养,而不需要摄入其他任何食物。今年四月,美国的客户收到了第一批Soylent产品


Robert Rhinehart is the 25-year-old co-founder and chief executive of the firm selling the drink.  He found himself spending too much time and money searching for nutritious meals while he was working in San Francisco.

25岁的罗伯特▪莱因哈特是这家饮料公司的创办人之一,同时也是公司的首席执行官。他曾在旧金山工作期间,每次都要花上好多时间和金钱给自己找上一顿营养均衡的美食。


An electrical engineering graduate, Rhinehart began to consider food as an engineering problem.  "You need amino acids and lipids, not milk itself," he was quoted as saying by The New Yorker:"You need carbohydrates, not bread."  He began to think that food was an inefficient way of getting what he needed to survive.

作为一名电机工程专业的毕业生,莱因哈特开始意识到食物其实是工程领域的课题。他在接受《纽约客》杂志采访时说:“你需要的是氨基酸和脂肪,而不是牛奶;你需要的是碳水化合物,而不是面包。”莱因哈特开始思考食物其实并不是他赖以生存的有效方式。


He took a break from work and taught himself about nutrition and nutritional biochemistry.  Eventually, Rhinehart came up with a list of nutrients required for survival.  Then, he ordered them off the Internet -- mostly in powder or pill form -- and poured everything into a blender, with some water.  The result, according to The New Yorker article, looked like gooey lemonade.  Then, Rhinehart started living on it.  In several interviews, Rhinehart said Soylent changed his life and made him healthier than ever before.

莱因哈特暂时放下工作,自学了营养学和营养生物化学。最终,莱因哈特得出了个人体生存所必须的营养素清单。然后他从网上订购了这些营养素的粉剂或者片剂,把这些东西一起放进搅拌器加水打碎。根据《纽约客》的报道中描述的,粉碎后的饮料看上去像是杯黏糊糊的柠檬水。从那以后,莱因哈特就靠喝这糊糊过活。几次采访中,莱因哈特都表示Soylent改变了他的生活,并且使他比原来更健康。
