NutrientCraft will help you design an optimal diet to meet your daily nutrient requirements

Some uses for NutrientCraft
- Design a diet that is a maximally efficient assortment of food that you enjoy eating
- Shame yourself by building a list of your current diet and let NutrientCraft show you how nutritionally deficient you are even in the best case scenario.
- Simply browse a slick version of the USDA’s National Nutrient Database. You can instantly sort thousands of food items by any nutrient! What to find the foods highest in potassium? No problem! How about foods with the least amount of sodium? Easy.
I was inspired by Rob Rhinehart’s soylent experiment
in which he claims to have stopped eating food by consuming only the ingredients the body requires. From his blog
, “There are no meats, fruits, vegetables, or breads here... I researched every substance the body needs to survive.. and purchased all of them in nearly raw chemical form from a variety of sources.”
I like the idea of 100% efficiency, however Rob’s approach is too extreme for me. There is, for example, the possibility that nutritional science is incomplete or the that the production of the raw nutrients is flawed. I wanted something in between a traditionally healthy diet and a futuristic nutrient goo.
