Do Liquid Diets Work

The first question you want answered though is, are liquid diets safe? Yes liquid diets are safe when consumed for a short period of time, say for a week or two to quickly lose excess weight under the supervision of your doctor or dietitian.

Once you get to your desired weight, you could then slowly return to eating solid foods that maintain your recommended daily calorie intake. You can get this information from a daily calorie intake calculator.

Liquid diets come in various forms including only liquids, a combination of liquid and soft food, or liquid and solid food depending on whether they are needed for medical reasons, or only to lose excess weight.

Since the purpose of a liquid diet is to lose excess weight quickly by burning more calories than you consume daily, it is likely your internal organs will not get all the nutrients they need to carry out their vital functions, which is why you should consult your doctor or dietitian before getting on a liquid diet.
