Over this time, the proponents of liquid diets have claimed you could lose the fat by using their products.
This is true, because many liquid diet plans are very low calorie diets.
Starvation diets that emphasize liquid nutrition at the expense of eating whole foods are often unhealthy and nutritionally inadequate.
They can help you burn the fat in the short term, but over the long haul they are a poor choice for your body and metabolism.
The reasons are fourfold:
- Low calorie diets trigger a "starvation response" in the body.
Your metabolism will slow down and your body will burn muscle for energy.
- The fat you burned will come back, many times making you fatter than you were before.
These liquid diets are a very short term solution as they do not teach you how to eat for long term fat burning success.
- Many of the products used in liquid diets contain ingredients like pure sugar and corn syrup.
These are the ingredients that you want to avoid in order to create a body that efficiently burns fat.
- You can find high quality meal replacement products.
But these products don't contain any fat burning qualities you can't get from whole foods.
Learn which foods are right for your body to burn the fat.
Meal replacement drinks should be used as a convenience but not as a major building block of a fat burning diet.
