July 16, 2019 / By Caetlin Question:
Okay so I really love those Morning Star fake chicken thingymabobbers and I can eat like 4 of a day and nothing else. I've done it for the past 2 weeks. Is it possible to live off just this for a long time without like dying or getting sick?

You would have some kind of vitamin deficiency unless you took a really good multi-vitamin. Humans are designed to utilize a wide variety of foods in their diet.

No it's not. There are essential nutrients and minerals you need from other foods. To much of any one food is bad for you. Your body needs a variety of foods in order to get the essential amino acids and vitamins it needs to function. Just as an FYI that fake chicken is probably made out of soy. I'd just like to inform you that soy isn't all that healthy for you due to it being genetically mutated and the fact that it does not go through a fermentation process.

Here is what you should be eating with every meal:
1 source of protein
1 whole grain
2 servings of vegetables/fruits
The fake chicken may have the protein, but try getting more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. And don't eat the fake chicken with every meal, maybe just two to three times a week. But of course you'll eventually get tired of it.

I eat tons of them too.. at least try eating them with different things. Make some whole wheat pasta and 1 chik patty, and put some marinara sauce over all of it. Or use the patty to make a sandwich with some whole wheat bread.
But you really need more variety in your diet. Try to eat a few fruits and vegetables every once in a while. Also, take a multivitamin, because you're probably not getting enough of something.
