Clear Liquid Diet Meal Plan
In a way: The drinks or shakes are formulated to satisfy your hunger, give you energy, and prevent protein malnutrition. However, the idea behind diet drinks or shakes is to lower the total amount of calories that you ingest per day thus allowing you to lose weight. They are replacing meals but not completely (calories). ...Read more
refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more
Could I do liquid diet for 20 days with exercising . after that I will change it to protein diet that include 5 small meals with exercise. Thanx?
What to do if i'm on a liquid diet of meal replacement shakes (morning (hungry). Is this healthy way to diet?
Depends: if it is your usual food liquified, obviously you'll get the same results as regularly eating. if it is just water and you skip ONE meal a day.. not very bad generally and MIGHT lose a little weight. Depends on if the liquid is full nutrition. Generally changing diet temporarily lowers intake https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1775472781/devils-diet covers this and other topics humorously ...Read more
For problems with inadequate peristalsis (nonspecific neuromuscular problem), is a liquid diet good? Can liquify fruits, veggies, tofu for p.M. Meal
Depends: Liquids tend to be easier to digest (as they are pre-digested down), but some neuromuscular problems are due in part to low vitamin B12 levels, and since B12 is in low quantity in vegetarian and especially vegan diets, it would be important to include this important nutrient. Medium-chain triglycerides and Amino Acids might also play a role in supplementation for such a liquid diet. ...Read more
Not exclusively: Liquid diet preparations need to contain a balance of the nutrients you need throughout the day. If they do, they are a convenient way to take in a calorie-controlled meal. But its best to also have the fiber/other benefits of food. Replacing one or at most two meals with a balanced liquid diet can be ok. Danger of all liquid diets: calories too low, lose too fast, metabolism falls, REGAIN! ...Read more
Chicken soup: If made right, chicken soup can be a delicious food on a clear liquid diet. You should be able to see right through the broth. Make it with parsely, dill, turnips, carrots, parsnips and fresh chicken. All the good ingredients will come out in the broth. Add salt to taste. Some people also add garlic. ...Read more
Define clear liquids: "clear liquids" are any food that is not solid at room ; body temperature that will allow sunlight to pass through: ice pops, jello, broth without particles, juices without particulates, water, light tea.

Confirm your selection with the performing doctor--you don't want to have to re-do the test due 2 bad prep. ...Read more

Could you give me some examples of low roughage foods and then a list of clear liquid diet foods ?
Ok......: you cannot stay on a clear liquid diet for enough time to have it lower weight. you CAN increase water/flavored water at the expense of less food (like rehydrating after exercise) and that is reasonable. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/low-fiber-diet/art-20048511 ...Read more
Avoid complications: Regular diet after surgery can lead to vomiting. Vomiting is dangerous and can lead to aspiration pneumonia. The anesthetic agents impact the intestines, slow them down. Post surgical diet promotes hydration, little fat, few calories and easy to digest. Constipation after surgery is a related problem. Stay on the diet and have a safe recovery. ...Read more
Quite a lot: I was going to say, if you liquify a regular diet there obviously won't be problems. You said a clear liquid diet. I assume you do not mean TUBE FEEDING with prepared full-nutrient solutions, but like water. Vitamin deficiency (thiamine) will cause circulatory collapse in 2-4 weeks. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000339.htm ...Read more
Can I have Werther's Original Caramel Hard Candies the day before my colonoscopy? I am on a clear liquid diet.
Yes: The hard candies will dissolve into soft or liquid form before they reach your bowel. While they are not quite clear, they are close enough. And the volume they would produce would be very small. I probably would not do more than 5 or 6 of them, though; maybe 10 at the most. None on day of procedure. Clearer/lighter hard candy would be better. Keep up the water!! Good luck! ...Read more
I have been on clear liquid diet all day and started colonoscopy prep 4.5 hours ago. I have drank 2 liters of movi-prep without a BM. What should I do?
Continue prep: Continue the prep as prescribed. If you have not had good BMs prior to time for the procedure, let the doctor who is going to do the procedure know. If your colon is not cleared out, the doctor will not be able to see well enough for the colonoscopy to be of any value. You may need to be prescribed a different bowel prep. ...Read more
Almost all : Clear liquids mean you just have to be able to see through it, even if it has color. So just about all sport drinks will work.. Gatorade, powerade, vitamin water. All will work. ...Read more
