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.

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?
Protein shake: Replacing one meal a day with a protein ("meal replacement") shake can be acceptable to help with weight loss. However, you still need to consume healthy foods with iron, folate, (folic acid) vitamin a, d, b1-6, etc. The best would be a whey based protein shake that is low in sugar (less than 5 grams per serving), low in carbs, and high in protein (20+ grams of protein per shake). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

I want to drink 18 shake luxury meal replacement, it has ascorbic acid vitamin c 18 mg 30 % day value, I take the instant release Adderall two times a day, will this protein 18 shake with vitamins especially c make my adderrall less effective?
Gastrointestinal : acidifying agents like ascorbic acid decrease the absorption, &, therefore, the blood level & clinical effect of Adderall, Adderall XR & Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). See www.drugs.com/cdi/adderall-xr-extended-release-capsules.html. Always tell your doctor before taking new medications, herbs, vitamins & supplements. Long-acting Adderall XR or Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) are easier to dose/ titrate & generally have less "rebound" effect. ...Read more
I haven't eaten in two weeks due to vomiting. I weighed 133 saturday.Saturday morning i started again clear liquid diet.Today i weigh 137?
Not a long term plan: You're right--the stomach empties liquids faster than solids, so there is less to "reflux" on a liquid diet. Seriously, how long do you think you can stay on a liquid diet, nor is it wise from a nutritional perspective in an otherwise normally-functioning gut. If gerd has been confirmed (dysmotility, heart, chest, lung, other diseases considered & ruled out) why not try an acid-blocker in low dose? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
