Liquid diets

Can someone live on a liquid diet for life, if they get enough calories, nutrients and protein from meal replacement shakes, orange juice and vegetable juice?

Hi there,
The basic concept behind the liquid diet is that it reduces the energy in our body, which may result in rapid weight loss. They are usually helpful if you want to lose a significant amount of weight, are preparing for weight-loss surgery or are at risk for health problems due to excess weight. It is advisable to consult a qualified doctor before opting for this diet because not all people can tolerate it. These diets are again associated with their own adverse effects. Most people regain the weight they lost while dieting as they start taking same diet. It is therefore essential to adopt lifestyle changes to maintain your weight. Do keep us posted.
Take care and regards!
