Could a person survive on an all liquid diet of meal replacement drinks like Ensure or Boost, that are full of protein and nutrients, for life?
They can and do. We give ensure and other specialty feedings like it to patients who live on tube feedings. Boost isn't as digestable if you put it down a tube.
Hello ashladdagirl75. Good question. And I am split. Logic would say yes. Practical? A nutritionalist would know. Regards pledge
