Liquid calories. Yes or No? I make juice at home and I like brothy soups. Though, I limit the quantity of liquid calories, because it simply doesn't make me feel full. You?
I've been making my own juices for years and won't go back to mass produced as I have to minimize added sugar. I drink four ounce servings, as a juice, and do not do meal replacement with them. I have not caught a single cold or flu since I started. Could be coincidence, but...
I make an eggnog based shake on gym nights and drink the entire batch around strength training.
i'm with @Plainjane in that i have drinks unadulterated by food matter: water, green & herbal tea, no sugar. with a hefty sugar addiction i usually don't have to worry about calorie intake; only 2 years ago when i kept losing weight due to chemo, & then i started to juice my vegies to go easy on my exhausted & confused digestive system.
Vegetarians also have to eat more frequently.
When it comes to eating, I say focus on getting a wide variety of nutrients, and don't worry about so much about calories. If your body has enough nutrients you will not feel the need to eat as much. Liquid or otherwise.
