Liquid diet is one where you can consume only liquids – water, fresh fruit juices etc – and give your teeth a period of rest. It sounds hard and even scary at times and the truth is – it is! You need a strong will and an even stronger motivation for following this kind of diet. But as for everything else in life, once you are determined nothing is difficult. Read this article for ideas that will help you follow your liquid diet plan.  

Liquid Diet Plan 

  • The best idea would be to visit a dietician and get a personalised liquid diet made for your body type. Randomly messing up with your body might cause serious damage to your health. Such damage could be quite irreparable.
  • There are a few liquid diet shakes available in the market which could be an answer to your plan.
  • You can consume fruit juices that are not pulpy, for example, apple juice, orange juice etc, lemonades, soups like chicken broth etc, decaffeinated tea, coffee etc. These are a few examples that you are allowed to drink during the liquid diet period.
  • Vegetable juices can also be consumed during as a part of liquid diet. Avoid mixing more than two vegetables in the drink because the resultant taste might be too overpowering to be considered palatable.
  • A good advice is to not prolong this kind of a diet for too long. Human body needs a balanced diet and depriving the body of its regular requirement of nourishment for too long eventually results in lethargy and weakness.
  • Drink lots of water. Dehydration leads to hunger which eventually makes you munch on solids and the diet gets terminated midway. Research has shown that drinking cold water takes longer to digest, so try drinking warm water. Not only will it help you to lose the kilos, it will also flush the toxins from your kidneys.
  • Buttermilk is an effective drink to be included in your liquid diet plan. It is rich in calcium, potassium, phosphorous and other essential minerals. You can garnish it with mint leaves and cumin seeds to suit your taste buds.
  • Also drinking coconut water can help a lot since it is rich in minerals and cools your body. It is known to carry nutrients to the cells and energise the body.
