Remember that Dexter's lab episode where he and his family went to the supermarket and he went home with the wrong parents? He went home with some scientist parents and he got sad because instead of a real breakfast, he just got some pills.

But I'm wondering, is it possible to live entirely on supplements and get all your nutrients and vitamins in pill form?

Oh and for the Dexter fans:

Currently, no.

In the future yes. You'll have pills you put into this microwave thing and it magically becomes food. Like in the fifth element.

I don't think so, and would you really want that? It would solve malnutrition, but one of the greatest pleasures in life is food.

I don't know if pills and crap like that would have enough caloric value to sustain anyone.

Unless they have a calorie pill.

I'm no nutritionist but I think you need to get genuine, organic stuff that can only be found in real food in addition to the vitamins and stuff in it.

Also, food is awesome. Why would you want to go without it?

The people in The Matrix, or should I say in the real world, were fed through tubes which must be liquid only.

I'd rather drink then eat.

If you just took supplements and water then your organs would probably break down and become weak from the inactivity (not having to break down and digest food).

That particular episode always got me thinking about that. He didn't just have pills, I think there was some freeze-dried thing in there, too.

My favorite part was the pamphlet reading they did.
#22
You're asking a serious theoretical question based on something you saw on a child's cartoon show? Wow.

But I really doubt it will ever be possible... plus... eating is way too much fun
#23
I love that episode. That was such a great show.

but on topic, no. you need food to live.

Dude, I totally forgot about that episode. My absolute favorite was either the one where he went to detention, or when he and Dee Dee discovered coffee.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

If you could find a substance really god damn dense in calories, you could probably just make a capsule with that + essential vitamins/minerals.

But is that a life worth living?
#27
I think they should make a pill that has all the things you need, expands in your stomach, and it deteriorates throughout the day.

For now, most people don't eat food purely for nutrition, but for the taste.

well people get fed through drips and what not, so I don't see why pills couldn't be used the same way. But you would probaly have to eat alot of them so its pretty much just like eatting ****ty food in pill form
