Liquid protein diets can be an effective means to lose weight over a short span of time.
A liquid protein diet is essentially a liquid shake that is fortified with vitamins, minerals, and required amounts of proteins. This liquid protein diet is substituted for full course meals, and acts as a liquid supplement for all the nutrition that the body needs. Liquid protein diets can be used to give a head start to the process of dieting and weight loss. Many individuals find it excruciating to sustain their dietary regime with liquid protein for a long time.
Liquid protein diets are of many varieties, though all of them are particularly low in carbohydrates. Liquid protein diets are available in the form of soup diets, meal replacement diets, and many other protein shake liquid supplement variants. Liquid protein supplements have very low calorie input. The normal level ranges from 400 to 800 calories a day, while a normal individual consumes 3500 calories or more per day through his regular diet.
However, there are certain side-effects that need to be considered in case of these liquid protein supplements.
Excessive consumption of proteins can lead to nausea, fatigue, dizziness, headache, and confusion. Another aspect to be considered in protein shakes is that they don’t always have the required levels of minerals needed for the body. Therefore, it is not good to wholly depend on protein diets. Protein liquid diets also do not contain any fiber content, which may ultimately lead to constipation. Also, as liquid protein supplements suffer from insufficient levels of calories, an individual may suffer from lack of energy.
Here are some tips to have in mind for liquid protein dieting. You need to make sure that the bought protein supplement has all the required minerals. The more minerals, the better the liquid supplement is. Liquid protein supplements should not be continued for more than three days at the most. It is also advisable to have other forms of supplements along with liquid protein supplements such as beetroot, whey powder, celery, bananas and fat free yogurts.
Liquid protein supplements can help with quick weight loss, but they should not be adopted for a long term regime. It is also recommended to consult a dietitian before an active and daily consumption of liquid protein supplements. One should make use of the liquid protein weight loss charts that are easily available in the market. Finally, liquid protein supplements should be evenly and regularly substituted with healthy food and fruits.
