Meal replacement drinks (not weight loss)

    • Thread Starter

    Does anybody know of any good drinks for when you can't eat? I keep finding slimming ones, but i'm not looking for weight loss.
    Basically eating is really difficult at the moment so I need some way of getting nutrients into me and I figured that sort of thig could be a good way. I would be especially interested in any that don't contain milk as I believe complan (the only one I have found) does.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    you could always make your own protein shake kinda thing. although these usually are had between meals to gain weight but it fills you up so i guess you could sometimes use it instead of a meal? just use a range of things like bananas, peanut butter, oats, milk (or water), maybe some protein powder?

    They used to give it to the people in our clinic who couldn't or wouldn't eat as a meal replacement. I think they're milk based though.*

    its a complete meal replacement
