Unfortunately few people actually succeed at keeping the weight off. Getting all the required lifestyle changes and keeping them in a short period of time is quite hard.

Another downside of the liquid diets is the fact that you have to buy a lot of premade food, which can be quite costly. It easily runs in the thousands range depending on what kind of meal replacement you choose to use. What you should know is that all of them are made of dried egg whites, milk and some flavoring to make it more eatable. Some manufacturers go the extra mile and add some vitamins and minerals in the mix.

In conclusion, liquid diets can be an effective way to lose weight but you have to make sure you get the right lifestyle if you want to keep the result for the long haul. It makes fast weight loss easy but weight maintenance quite hard. You’ve been warned. The choice is yours.
