Some frequently asked questions about Sustenance.

Why do you recommend a subscription over a one time purchase?

The main obstacle to healthful nutrition is the difficulty of consistently eating healthy. Your average meal is only as healthy as the default meal you can fall back on. If you oversleep and run late for work, unless there’s a default to fall back on, you're going to skip your breakfast. If you head out for a quick lunch during a busy day at work, unless there’s a default to fall back on, you will slip up from time to time and choose an unhealthy option.

A monthly subscription to our product tackles this problem very, very effectively. Having a constant supply of Sustenance means that there will be a simple, convenient option that you can always fall back on when you want to eat healthy without thinking or going out of your way. It greatly reduces decision fatigue and the friction to eating healthier.

What is the science behind the weight loss the product brings?

The energy balance equation governs weight loss. If you consume more calories than you expend, weight is gained. If you burn more calories than you consume, then weight is lost. Where we come in is simpe: by replacing one of your large, high calorie meals with our filling, low calorie shakes, you're more likely to eat at a caloric deficit and induce weight loss. If you want a short primer on the fundamentals of weight loss, check out this blog post. If you'd like an estimate of how much weight you can lose, try out our weight loss estimator.
