Meal Replacement Plans & Liquid Diets

A typical meal replacement diet involves substituting a number of meals and snacks with a nutritionally balanced shake made from sugar, skimmed milk powder, fiber, vitamins, minerals and sweetener. Some plans offer candy-like bars as an alternative. There is no time limit to this diet. You may stay on it indefinitely.

What you eat & drink
Typically, you replace two meals and one snack, per day, with one shake. Each shake contains about 200 calories and up to 3 grams of fat. Your third meal is a nutrient-rich meal of about 600 calories. Thus your total daily calorie-intake is about 1200.

Advantages
The diet is nutritionally balanced and very convenient. All you have to do is open a can, grab a glass, and add milk. In addition, being very sweet, these shakes/bars are good news for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Drawbacks
Although the flavor of the shakes may not appeal to everyone, the biggest drawback concerns the issue of eating habits. Meal-replacement diets can help you to lose weight in the short term but they can't help you to acquire the sort of sensible eating habits which are essential for long term weight loss.

Verdict
A reasonably good (and healthy) short term option for disciplined dieters. But make sure your daily solid meal is healthy and your snacks include plenty of fruit and vegetables.
