liquid diet a diet limited to the intake of liquids or foods that can be changed to a liquid state; it may be restricted to clear liquids or it may be a full liquid diet.
Clear Liquid Diet. This is a temporary diet of clear liquids without residue. It is not nutritionally adequate, and is used in some acute illnesses and infections, postoperatively (especially after gastrointestinal surgery), and to reduce fecal matter in the colon. Foods allowed include water, tea, coffee, fat-free broth, carbonated beverages, synthetic fruit juices, plain gelatin, and sugar.
Full Liquid Diet. This diet can be nutritionally adequate with careful planning. It is used for acute gastritis, as a transition between clear liquid and soft diet, and in conditions in which there is intolerance to solid food. Milk, strained soups, and fruit juices are allowed. Foods that liquefy at body temperature, such as ice cream, flavored gelatin, and soft custards, can be included. Cereal gruels and eggnogs are allowed. When a full liquid diet is used as a tube feeding it must be of a consistency that will allow easy passage through the tube. Most full liquid diets are given in feedings every 2 to 4 hours.
