    Getting teeth pulled, how can i keep up caloric intake?

    I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed in about a month, and i won't be able to chew for 5 days. I'm a little scared that i won't be able to keep up my caloric intake and lose some mass, probably a decent chunk of muscle too. What suggestions do u have to get through this period with losing as little mass as possible?

    You'll be fine. There a plenty of liquid drinks out there to get you past the first few days... after that you will just be eating a little crooked.

    Five days of a liquid diet will not cause any atrophy if that is your primary concern. And it would be a good time to take a few days out of the gym for rest while your body heals itself. And then return to the gym acting like a caged animal.

    BTW, Myoplex is my favorite tasting MRP and is good as a MEAL replacement with the high level of Casein (slow release with a high BV) in addition to some Whey protein and other good stuff.

    That scene forever put a stain in my image of Arnold - I was soooo pissed they had Conan eating shit like that! Mr. Olympia, the dude that killed Predator, the Running Man,... errrrr...
