Hey guys! I'm the founder of Ample! AMA!

@connor_p_young hey, I know you! You're a trainer. I took your classes at the gym a few times. You're the best I ever trained with. I had no idea you were doing this.
Connor Young@connor_p_young · Biohacker
haha heck yes, @andrewwarner! I remember your first handstand hold on a box, and your rope climb. You were freaking awesome! Unfortunately I can't coach anymore and sold my CrossFit gym: #startuphours. Lets get together soon and catch up!

@connor_p_young just bought in. Excited to try it. I've never had a meal replacement before.

@connor_p_young this is interesting and great timing on @_jacksmith as I've been trying to find something for when we are out planting or harvesting.
Connor Young@connor_p_young · Biohacker
@natelegler @_jacksmith awesome! glad to hear it! also, props for being a 5th generation farmer. hard to do. what do you grow?

@connor_p_young corn soybeans with a dash of alfalfa for the cow calf operation. Calves we raise for show and the ones that don't make the cut end up getting fed out (non hormone use) and sold direct to consumers.

@connor_p_young What is the ideal price-per-bottle once Ample (as a company) is self-sustaining? I currently buy "100% Food" (http://www.spacenutrientsstation...). If I buy at least 4 weeks, I get $3.35 per bottle (84 bottles total) and free shipping. What would a subscription plan for Ample look like in comparison?
Connor Young@connor_p_young · Biohacker
@aleclarsoniv Hey man, at scale, for a 400cal version, we're targeting around $4.50ish. For 600 cal, around $5.50-5.75. A subscription would be a bit lower but I can't say for sure just yet, since we need to do a lot more testing. We'll never be able to compete with them on price because our ingredients are 2-3x more expensive than the 5 ingredient + standard multivitamin blend Space Nutrients uses.
@connor_p_young Ex-paleo here, super appreciate AmpleX having no added sweeteners whatsoever! What you're doing is super cool, and addresses the issues I personally have with the nutrition provided with other meal replacement alternatives like Soylent. Did I hear in the video that you can get Ample in SF right now? If so, where?
Connor Young@connor_p_young · Biohacker
@banunatina Hey! I'm excited you're passionate about it as well! Unfortunately, we're not taking on any new customers right now. We just can't handle the volume; also, Ample X is still in the development process so we don't even sell it to existing customers. Looking forward to seeing what you think when we release it in September!

I’m quite into healthy diet stuff and had recently been experimenting with probiotics and probiotics such as green banana and things like cacao powder. So when I came across Ample and found all the ingredients to be legit, I was really excited. Every single ingredient is legit. I reached out to the founder and got connected. I’ve previously used Soylent and I'm a big big fan of that company, I think they're going to be hugely successful in the future and I'm looking forward to seeing their future products. But in the short-term, I must admit that I haven’t drunk it for a long time. The main ingredient today of Soylent is maltodextrin - a cheap food additive; it also contains an artificial sweetener in sucralose, which I’m trying to avoid. For now, Ample is ideal for people like me, who are health conscious. I couldn’t make a more ideal set of ingredients, and having tried it recently, I can confirm that it tastes great. Maybe a bit like silent, but more nutty (from the macadamia nuts that are in it). Here’s a Q&A that they put together because they get asked about how it compares to Soylent so much: http://www.amplemeal.com/soylent... Ample is already pretty cheap; but the team have been kind enough to put together two special offers for product hunt users, that give you an extra 10% off: - Secret link for a pack of the 400cal bottles: https://www.indiegogo.com/projec... - Secret link for a pack of the 600cal bottles: https://www.indiegogo.com/projec...

@joshdance yes, I've tried it, packaging looks great and tastes great. They've already manufactured a load of it. Very low risks to shipping vs other Indiegogo/Kickstarter campaigns

@_jacksmith @joshdance How does it taste compared to Soylent 2.0 ?

@nipungupta @joshdance it tastes better than Soylent 2.0; slightly more nutty.

@heyjeffshaw well 2.0 contains a lot of soy, which is an estrogenic - so that's not impossible...

I bought a case of Ample as soon as Jack told me about it. I've been drinking Soylent for breakfast and occasional snacks for a while now but have always been disappointed that it's so high in carbs, and low in fat and protein. Plus all the processed ingredients and no Paleo options. I'm really excited for Ample and can't wait for my first shipment!

@iamjakestream there will be a low-carb option when it ships for everyone backing now. In the future they'll have a keto option, which will have moderate/low protein, very low carbs, and high fat
Jake Gibson@iamjakestream
@_jacksmith yep already discussed with them 😀
