Should You Use A Liquid Diet For Weight Loss?| Men Over 40 | Men Over 50

  1. 1. Should You Use A Liquid Diet For Weight Loss
  2. 2. If you have a busy schedule, it may look a lot easier for you to go for calorie- controlled liquid diets instead of going through the hassle of preparing healthy meals regularly.
  3. 3. If you are thinking of going on a liquid diet for weight loss, you need to know that some of these diets could cause health problems especially if you have an existing illness like Type-2 diabetes.
  4. 4. Liquid diets are fat loss plans that require you to drink all your daily calories for between 3 days to 3 weeks! They come as a shake or liquid drink.
  5. 5. There are liquid diets like SlimFast that are advertised as being “meal replacements”. And the extreme liquid diets meant for weight loss like the Lemonade diet that contains no protein.
  6. 6. Liquid diets are usually extremely low calorie diets. So, yes your body would enter a state of “calorie deficiency” and you would begin noticing that you are losing weight.
  7. 7. On extreme calorie restriction, your body would be forced to use its fat reserves for energy… this can result in weight loss of 3 – 7 pounds of weight loss per week.
  8. 8. The problem with liquid diets is that you may NOT be getting sufficient amounts of carbohydrates, proteins and other vital nutrients that your body needs to keep you healthy.
  9. 9. For example, the Lemonade diet supplies your body with no protein! While “Shakeology” and “SlimFast” will supply your body with 10 – 20 grams of protein for each glass of shake.
  10. 10. Don’t get me wrong, going on a low calorie liquid diet like the Lemonade diet for a few days would have no serious impact on your health.
  11. 11. However, repeatedly following crash diets or very low calorie liquid diets increase your chances of experiencing a heart attack and it could also cause serious damage to your blood vessels.
  12. 12. With all the possible dangers of a low-calorie liquid diet for weight loss, you might think it is worth it since you are going to be losing a lot of body weight in a short time… right?…
  13. 13. Although you are likely to lose a lot of weight when following the typical low-calorie liquid diet, once you resume your normal way of eating, you gain back the weight you lost quickly.
  14. 14. And there is also the risk of muscle loss… this is because you body reduces it metabolism as a way to hold on to its fat reserves.
  15. 15. When you are not consuming enough proteins (and calories) and doing weight training (lifting weights), your body uses both fat and muscle tissue as its source of energy.
  16. 16. Once you start eating normally, the extra calories that your body receives would not automatically replace the lost muscles, it would just get converted to fat.
  17. 17. 500 calories of a liquid diet is NOT the same as 500 calories of an actual solid meal. By using a liquid diet for weight loss, you are going to be experiencing more hunger pangs.
  18. 18. Drinking your calories leaves you feeling hungry constantly because you would NOT get any feeling of satiety. One reason for this is that most liquid diets contain very little fiber in them.
  19. 19. Fiber helps push digestive waste through the intestines to prevent constipation, rids your body of bad cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein & LDL from the bloodstream.
  20. 20. For example, the Lemonade liquid diet for weight loss requires that you use a laxative to prevent constipation because your insoluble fiber intake is limited on this diet. The problem is that taking laxatives can cause problems for your intestines, reduce electrolytes and lead to major dehydration
  21. 21. And going on a liquid diet will not cleanse your body systems. There is no scientific study that shows that a person can get rid of toxins in his body when following a liquid diet.
  22. 22. Forget the whole hype about liquid diets… your digestive system doesn’t need to take a break from solid foods… it is just like saying your lungs need a break air… ehmm… no they don’t!
  23. 23. There are specific groups of people that should stay away from using liquid diets for weight loss, they are: •Diabetes sufferers •Men that are using blood thinners •Individuals that have low immunity caused by chronic illnesses
  24. 24. There is no need for extreme measures like going on a low-calorie liquid diet for weight loss. By engaging in regular exercise (both cardiovascular exercise and weight training) and following a healthy calorie-controlled diet you can lose your excess body fat steadily and without any damage to your health.
