Is it possible to live off Ensure Plus for 2 weeks?
Posted in: Health
Q: Is it possible to live off Ensure Plus for two weeks? I have some food allergies and am going to be traveling abroad so I was planning to drink Ensure most of the time if not all the time. Would I need to supplement my diet with anything else?
A: Yes, you can spend a few days entirely on this supplement. But you should supplement with fresh fruits and a dish of leafy vegetables to ensure that you have no constipation.
An 8-ounce pack will provide 350 calories (you can adjust according to your weight). Around 2000-2400 calories for females and 2200-3000 for men may be needed per day.
