Does a protein drink count towards liquid requirement?

I am having trouble drinking 48oz of liquid per day. Is it only clear liquids that count or any liquid?

Hi so from the information folder that i have gotten from my doctor my two week pre-op liquid diet is anything you can drink from a cup including smooth soup. And yes if you are using protein powder the 8oz 1% milk that you use counts as 8oz of liquid. You can also drink Gatorade G2 its low in sugar and low in carbs.

Or the almond milk, or whatever you mix your protein powder in.

Yup! All liquid is liquid.

And you should be getting a MINIMUM of 64 ounces, not 48.

What about tea and coffee? Do they count?

I think it does... Which protein drinks do you like? Do you also take some supplements? I think they are good and helathy too... Maybe you will like the Canadian Pharmacy here. I often get some great stuff for me and my family from there, and I like it a lot
