Does a liquid diet help lose weight

Common Questions and Answers about Does a liquid diet help lose weight


Avatar f tn Liquid diet is not a good practice for weight loss. This is because, if the liquids are not supplying things like protein, then your body starves for calorie food. As a result, your body goes into survivor mode and metabolism slows down to preserve energy.
Avatar f tn I've never seen a liquid diet, but I'd say it's probably not safe, because you might not be getting all the nutrients you need. Additionally, fad diets such as that are not meant to be long term, so any weight loss would most likely be regained once you go off the diet. Healthy eating and moderate exercise are the best way to lose weight.

Avatar f tn I take B12 injections regularly because I have a deficiency --- trust me, B12 is NOT a weight loss supplement and does NOT cause you to lose weight. The best you can hope for with it is additional energy to exercise more. AND since you apparently don't have a deficiency, you could most likely accomplish the same thing with a sublingual B12 purchased at your local health food store and save the $ it will cost for the shot at weight loss doctor to spend on something else.
768251 tn?1256734583 re buying the pre-prepared ones. If you have a juicer you can juice anything, so you can have a very nutritious liquid diet that way. However, since you won't be staying on a liquid diet, when you go back to a solid one, you'll probably gain the weight back. What you need is a permanent change in your diet, cutting back on the simple sugars such as white flour and sweets and such and the bad fats such as fatty cuts of beef, and increasing calorie burning.
Avatar m tn For a person to live on a liquid diet for life, what would they have to drink every day? Ensure? Boost? Some type of meal replacement shake? Juice?

Avatar f tn That's too much weight to lose in one month. You can get started now, with a reasonable amount and lose the rest the following month.

Avatar f tn d suggest a low calories diet until you reach your perfect BMI) and exercise you will lose that weight. If you want to be back to normal by July then maybe you would need liquid diet or more exercise. Maybe you can reach your goal the way you are doing it right now... Who knows?
Avatar f tn Agreed, not a good idea to really diet, but it's always a good idea to eat as healthy as you can for both you and the baby. Not only does dieting limit your calories, and the baby does need a certain amount to develop properly, but it might also keep you from getting the nutrients from certain foods that you need. Alone, we can and do restrict our bodies sometimes from certain types of food while we're dieting, when we're pregnant though we're eating to nourish the baby.
Avatar f tn I'm a 16 year old girl, I'm 5'3 and I weigh 121lbs. I need to lose 10 lbs as fast as possible because I feel extremely uncomfortable in my skin. Can somebody help me? What kinds of food are recommended/have little calories. How many calories should I eat per day to reach my goal?
Avatar f tn (Standing ovation) When I was young, I struggled with weight, and not until doing research and finding more recent information which has helped me restore my health and take loads of weight off do I now have a better understanding if why humans pack on the pounds. There is a mechanism involving insulin that regulates a whole bunch of things in the body, and one thing being your blood sugar.
Avatar n tn 1-2lbs a week is a great average when trying to lose weight! Its the healthiest pace... keep in mind the faster you lose weight the faster you will gain it back if you give up or just stop your activity and or dieting. Keep up the good work... make sure to consume atleat 1800 calories a day... you don't want your body to store fat becasue it thinks it wont get another meal.
Avatar f tn What is the best diet for PCOS? It has been hard for me to lose weight and I need to know if there is a specific diet for PCOS?

Avatar f tn Hi,I m a busy student.I don't have time for exercise and diet plans.I can't keep a diet.I don't have enough sleep time. If you know some silly ideas to lose weight fast,plz tell me.My bro's wedding is next month so I have to lose weight as fast as I can.
Avatar f tn t believe in diets, diets are for people who just want to lose weight and find the easy way out and a diet is only a temporary solution for a permanent problem. If you go on a diet you will risk putting the weight back on but losing weight fast is not the reason people gain weight back. That comes from lack of discipline and motivation. I lost well over 100 pounds in less than six months and have now kept the weight off for over 8 years.
Avatar f tn Hello. I go through sort of the same struggle you do. I lost a ton of weight following the "Low GI" diet. Its Low Glycemic Index. The diet itself shouldn't really be called a diet because its really just all of the foods you should be eating anyway...but who am I to say that? The Low GI diet is great for people trying to stay away from getting Diabetes, and for people who have Diabetes. Google the diet to pull up all the foods.
637356 tn?1301924822 Ok so I got the amount of calories I should stay under or at a day for free but where do I began with a good meal plan to help me lose the weight?? Also I have a good exercise routine and I am good at avoiding temptation. I just need help eating the right types of food.
Avatar f tn I dont get time to do exercise or may be im too lazy for it. So I want to start with some good weight lose pills. I saw online about a weight lose pill 'Adipril' but I am not sure whether this pill is good for me or no. Any suggestions ?
Avatar f tn 20 lbs is too much to lose in 3 weeks, with safe weight loss being 1-2 pounds/week. Most likely if you're gaining weight, it's because you're building muscle from the exercise. Try taking your measurements and see if you've lost body mass, even if the scale went the wrong direction. Your calorie intake is based on your age, height and current weight. If you like, I can help you calculate that.

Avatar f tn I am a new mom, I delivered my baby 4 months ago, I want to go on a diet but I am afraid thst will affect my baby because I am breast feeding her
Avatar f tn I would not suggest that a 15 yr old use diet pills of any kind. If by chance they would help you lose some weight (most of the time they don't work), you will only gain it back once you stop taking them. It would be much better is you incorporate a sensible diet and exercise into your routine to lose weight, so you will be able to keep it off. Feel free to read some of the other posts and health pages to get some ideas on how/where to start on a weight loss journey.
Avatar f tn so about 10-15g a day with meals. Probiotics can help too together with digestive enzymes and HCL Try a low carb diet, 100-150g protein, healthy fats (like fish oil, almonds, coconut oil...) and a lot green vegetables (no other carbs then from green vegetables).
