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.

thanx for the advice, i'm actually getting em pulled the first week of my xmas break, which kills me that i can't workout because thats a great time to catch up on my workouts, but that'll just make my workouts more intense when i return
