I don't know if this is the right place to put this i was torn between here and eating disorders sence I don't tend to eat alot. Like only once a day if that. But would it hurt if I started drinking pediasure again to get things i need? I honestly don't trust supplements so I think I prefer something i have had before in my life. 18, male. I don't think it would hurt sence its not mediated but I still want an option on this.

um I don't think it would hurt you no. that being said, there are more adult equivalents which may give you even more of the nutrients you are seeking

But I prefer the taste of pediasure over gatoraid

I seriously doubt there would be any harmful affects from you drinking Pediasure. It's simply a nutritional drink mix, as long as you don't binge on it, you'll be fine.

But Pediasure is designed for children, which means as a grown guy, you won't be getting that much nutritional value from it. If you want a good nutritional drink supplement, there are various different kinds made for adults you should probably look at instead.

I believe Ensure is basically the adult equivalent of Pediasure. Take a look at them.

I thought pedisure was more of a milk compared to a pedialight. I know they drink calcium/vitamin boosters for adults which is not technically milk but it is closer to milk then it is to Gatorade

Yup. I believe Seth is right. Maybe try GNC or another nutrition store for some advice on a drink that would be better for what you are trying to accomplish.
IMO of course.

I second Ensure. When I had my wisdom teeth removed, I couldn't eat much solid food for a week and basically survived on those drinks and limited soft foods. Just keep a healthy diet and don't consume them excesiively.

ensure that's what I was thinking of. OP, ensure and similar products are kind of like pediasure, except they're made for adults (though I am sure it would be fine for kids or they may even have kids version as well) which has more nutrients.
