Liquid Nutrition VS Solid Foods
I read once a while ago (cant find the dang link) that liquid nutrition is much more easily taken up by the body, but they didn't mention by how much IE a % difference of uptake efficiency. My question is how much different are uptake rates? If i can eat X number of calories with a liquid diet how many should i be able to eat with standard foods or vise versa. Thanks guys!

I thought that a lot of the nutritional values were lost somewhere along the lines with liquid diets...
I've always heard that whole foods are by far the way to go. The only thing beneficial about a liquid diet, that I can think of, is convenience and ease of ingestion. And by that I mean, you can increase your caloric intake a lot easier via liquid because you don't fill up as quickly.
But I personally think whole foods are the way to go....

Thats true. Liquid is easier on the body too digest. It saves the stomach from having too break it down.
With that said, to digest food it takes calories, more calories for solid food than liquid. I cant give you a %, becuase it depends on your metabolism and exactly what kind of food we are talking about. But thats the basics.

The only advantage is a faster gastric emptying. Not sure how you'll be able to obtain essential macro and micro nutrients by using liquids but many factors are drawn back if you have a liquid-based diet, including: poor consistent energy stabilization, mood/satiety, and most important- money.
So, a faster gastric emptying means: higher-complexity foods become vastly insulinotrophic which resultS in the unstable energy levels.
If this was true, you'd see more people doing this.
But they don't, because it's bogus.
Whole foods is the way to go bro.

the thing with liquid is that it makes you get hungry right away.
I think you would have to take some fiber supps to make you fuller.

The best way to go is whole foods and then maybe some liquids when you do not have time for whole food.

normally with liquid nutrition its obvious you dont want to be on it every meal of every day, it does lack vitamins and minerals that are SPECIFIC TO YOUR PERSONAL needs. thats why a good multi should be warrented along with maybe some potassium and iron (depending on the supp taken)
but it emptys faster then regular food,
predigested aminos, and maltodextrin (as thier main source) and MCTs as their fat (which IMO is a useless fat,but has itsplace, id rather add a scoop of PB or EVOO)
