Dangers of Liquid Diets
Using Liquids For Weight Loss

What is more nutritious?

- A canned liquid diet OR
- A glass of water and a multi-vitamin?

We can tell our readers that the safest manner of weight loss doesn't come in a can or bottle.

Our bodies may have started out with the sole ability of processing liquids, but after we exited infancy, our needs changed.  Solids became a necessity. And when our stomach doesn't receive incoming food for processing, the metabolism tends to slide into slow motion, realizing that something is amiss - so it does its part by conserving calories, keeping the body operating until things stabilize.

What about canned diet concoctions used as meal supplements?  

A small salad with lean slices of deli meat and a few cubes of cheese contains far less calories than most canned diet supplements.  A canned diet supplement may contain 250 calories or more!

Common sense tells us that obtaining our vitamins naturally is the best method.

Satisfying Powers of Liquid Diets

To test the appetite-satisfying powers of liquid diets, drink one at meal time.

On the following day, try enjoying a serving of oatmeal with 1/2 cup of skimmed milk and a spoon of sugar - about two hundred calories.

Which sticks with you longer - the oatmeal, or the liquid diet?

In Summary

Before going on any liquid diet, you should seek the advice of your doctor. If a particular hidden condition exists, a liquid diet may prove fatal.
