    I'm considering going on a liquid diet for who knows how long and I'm curious if anyone has done so?

    Do you have any recommendations? Any good/reputable/reliable links?

    I'm fairly lean, but a good cleansing and cutting a bit more (not the best way to do it, I realize this) can't be too horrible........right?

    I was serious actually, but the more and more I think of it, it doesn't sound too pretty.

    Here's something I pulled up real quick:

    Liquid Diets and Health Issues
    A liquid diet may not provide the needed nutrients to maintain adequate energy levels in most individuals. Short-term weight loss can be achieved, but when liquids such as protein shakes are eventually eliminated from the diet, pounds tend to be regained. Those who embark on a juice fast—also categorized as a form of liquid dieting—may find it less than satisfactory. The lack of proteins and fiber is also at issue with many physicians. In most cases, the replacement of food with fluids, even if medically supervised, simply will not be practical in the long term for those who need to lose only a minimal amount of weight. Some individuals believe that fluids will cleanse the system of impurities, including those that have built up in the liver. These beliefs are generally refuted, with the caveat that the elimination of most processed foods is always beneficial. The concern lies mainly with a fanatical approach to a liquid diet in which one ignores the essential vitamins, proteins, fibers, and other required sources for optimum health. Ultimately, nutrition and resistance to disease will suffer in the effort to achieve a more defined physique. Incorporating a liquid meal replacement can be an acceptable way to reduce a limited amount of weight, but should be used in conjunction with regular meals. Without portion control, these diets may fail as well.

    You know what works quicker? Take a razor blade and just cut the fat off your stomach. Make sure you soak the razor blade in bleach before hand so it is serile (do not want to get an infection).

    There is no quick and easy way to lose weight. Well you can but unless you have changed your eating habits you will lose 10 lbs one weekend and put 15 back on the next week.

    Just do what everyone else who has successfully lost weight and kept it off has done and actually just eat healthy and smart.

    its amazing what eating a good quality (ie. high fibre, vitamin, etc) diet can do for the digestive tract.

    and its so much easier/tastier than liquid only, cleansing shit

    I think it is beneficial to do a cleanse every so often, but they say it takes three days to really clean out your body.

    Yeah, but as soon as you go back to eating real food, you'll just gain back all of the weight.
