I haven't been able to keep track of my calorie intake so I decided a few days ago to switch to only mealshakes and nothing else. I already exercise a lot, to lose weight I figure I just need to get my calorie intake under control. I figured I would eat about 1500 calories worth of mealshakes a day. They have a long list of nutrients listed at 20-25% so I figure 4 or 5, at 250 calories each, of those a day and I'm set.
In practice I generally only drink 2 or 3 a day and lots of water with no interest in any more then that. And I'm worried I might suffer side effects. I've got about eighty pounds I need to lose I guess. I don't know, I plan to slowly go off the diet when I look right, adjusting to a healthy eating style. Though I may just stay with it the rest of my life if the latter proves too hard.View Thread
