That sounds less like a meal and more like a sentence.

Yes! As a punishment, as of saying you can not have any true food!

I would try it.

It might be good for the military, emergency shelters, extreme camping, in areas of famine, etc...

I think I would rather have Plumpy'Nut.

This sure isn't a recent theory.

I thought this futuristic idea was put to rest eons ago when they predicted that people living now would no longer depend on actually eating real food as a part of daily life.
Bull Hocky. Humans want and need the pleasure of eating real food and always will. It's part of being human.

Though I agree that eating real food is part of being human, I think it's an interesting idea. The young men who came up with this were living on stuff like ramen and MacDonalds. They are getting better nutrition with this stuff. They also talk about the difference between eating for nutrition and recreational eating. They admit that it will never replace your mum's pot roast.

I want to see what happens when someone tries to live on this stuff for a long time, for years.

They mentioned emergencies, etc. in the article. According to New Yorker article, the military and NASA want to know more. Yeah, I can see how this might be useful on a space flight to Mars.

Kayelle, I had part of my stomach removed along with the nerves that tell me I am hungry, many years ago. So I can go without eating for days and never get hunger pains. What makes me eat is I miss the taste of food and the act of chewing. Those two things tell me I am still human.

....plus the fact that you're diabetic and common sense says you should eat a few times a day whether or not you feel hunger pangs?

And it's really hard to go without eating for very many days and stay alive...
