Can you tell me the best liquid diet program to lose 20 lbs?
I need to lose weight fast and I need a sure way to get the pounds off.
Somehow, I can’t seem to stick to a normal diet to lose weight.
Either I can’t seem to stay on it or I don’t get any results.
Please suggest the best program for a liquid diet.
The best approach to a liquid diet program is to use protein shakes along with regular food.
If you want to go on a strict liquid diet, I only suggest that you stay on it for 3 days to help cleanse your body and get you use to reducing total calorie intake.
Be sure to drink at least 64 ounces of water each day and take a daily vitamin supplement, preferably in liquid form because liquid vitamins are better absorbed.
During the first 3 days, drink 4 protein shakes per day for a total of 800 calories.
After day 3, drink a protein shake for mid morning and mid afternoon snack.
Breakfast should consist of whole grain cereal with a fruit and dinner consist of a lean meat such as grilled / baked chicken breast, lean steak, lean pork chop or turkey breast with one or two vegetables.
Consistency is the key to losing weight.
The first 3 days of “liquid only” will help train your appetite for the next 6 to 10 weeks.
After day 3, your total calorie intake should increase to 1200 – 1400 calories for women and 1600 to 1800 calories for men.
To make your liquid protein shake, I suggest the following:
- 2 Scoops of whey protein powder
- 8 Ounces of cold low fat milk, preferably un-sweeten soy milk
- 5 Packets of Splenda
- 4 Ice cubes
Place content in blender and blend on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
The content will taste like a thick milk shake.
This method will help you lose 1 to 2 lbs per week until you get to your target weight.
