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 feel like I'm sloshing when I eat a lot of soup

Same here. I can feel it moving around my belly


I drink juice straight from the bean....but that's about it...

@silvereyes Funny thing is, I hate it....tastes like funk butt....however, when I was training mma, I learned to give up soda pop, and trade it in for I drink coffee like it is medicine...only works if it tastes like feces....haha


Liquid, preferably a good scotch, but a good gin, vodka, rum, or tequila will do in a pinch.

So many of these posts make me laugh out loud, so thankful to you all for being so witty and charming .


Partner and i have both been poorly for a while after flu jab didnt work this year - so making stews with pulses and lots of veggies etc - (we are vegans) I feel full enough but we do tend to eat a lot, anyway.

@silvereyes Keep it in its all soft and squidgy as I keep it on a low heat all morning - we eat at lunchtime also put garlic and ginger in it .


I only drink water, coffee work no sugar or cream, or Coke Zero.
I prefer to eat my calories. For me, though, it's probably a good thing, as I have a terrible gummy bear habit lol

I prefer German beer over all other carbohydrates

Love the carbs in Heineken!


Adding a clear/unflavored version of a fiber mix might help.

I'm mostly water or coffee w/ almond milk at this point. Liquid calories are for special occasions around here.

Lysistrata Level 7 Mar 13, 2018

I avoid extra calories, so juices are right out.

Rugglesby Level 8 Mar 13, 2018

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.

yes its called beer

The problem with Juice is that it has a lot of sugar and no fiber.

nicknotes Level 7 Mar 13, 2018

I only drink water, tea, coffee or a rare glass of wine. Juice usually has more sugar than a can of pop. I gave up pop about 6 years ago.

I've tried but I always fall off after a day or two

I love freshly squeezed yellow grapefruit - neat or mixed with tonic water.

Watery soups out of vegetables, meat and noodles help me loose weight or at least not put it on as they help to reduce my quantities consumed.

FrayedBear Level 8 Mar 13, 2018

I keep it water and protein... maybe a once a month mixed drink...

HonkyBMcfunky Level 6 July 17, 2018
