In my research it seems properly made meal replacement shakes with fresh fruits and vegtables and balanced for proper nutrition are healthy as a possible replacement for one or two meals a day.
However from my perception there seems to be some consensus that consuming them all them time is not ideal and consuming them for every meal is bad. However, I am having trouble finding information on why.
Wouldn't a shake have almost all necessary nutrition? Is there something inherently bad with non-solid diets?
Is it because of the lack of nutrients that are usually only maintained from non-mixed ingredients like meats?
Is it healthy to continually consume meal replacement shakes over the course of the day vs. getting the recommended 6 meals a day?
