Exercise! - Liquid Protein Diets

View Full Version : Liquid Protein Diets

I have been on a liquid protein diet for three months (and exercising faithfully!) and have lost 37 pounds; my goal is to lose 20 pounds more. I am ready to start eating real food while still adhering to healthy eating (i.e., poultry, fish, veggies, fruits, grains). Of course, I am concerned about gaining weight because of the liquid protein diet. I am wondering if anyone has done a liquid protein diet and, if so, what effects did you experience once you started eating real food. Any input will be appreciated!

Check out my web site. My wife and I are unquestionably true VLCD success stories. We did it "right." Made sure we got enough protein. Did a good amount of weight-bearing exercise. Etc.

Click on the "Health Management" link for our whole story. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have!

What type of protein shakes did you use? Can you tell me more about what products you used?

Melody, the above is a very old post. You might be further ahead to do a search on protein shakes in the recipe sections or send a PM to Bicker who is still around but may not see your post.

During weight loss I used HMR 500, and then HMR 800. In maintenance, I've primarily used Myoplex Lite, but have also occasionally made pudding from HMR 70+. My weight-loss regimen included use of meal replacement entrees as well as meal replacement shakes. During weight-loss they were all HMR entrees. In maintenance, I typically buy Lean Cuisine, Healthy Choice or Smart Ones.
