And any pros and cons? Please as many opinions! Thanks in advance!

I weigh 165 lbsÖon forum it says if Iím trying to lose fat to multiply body weight times 12 soÖ.12x165=1980 calories (so thatís how many calories I should be taking) 345 less than Iím supposed too, and for protein minimum 1g per lbs (165g) 225.25-165= 60.25 (1.365g per lbs).
You need more solid food IMO, and calories and fats are both too low. Please read Built's diet sticky at the top of this forum.
nothing wrong with the layout and using liquads in my opinion at all. i would say hit 2000 cals a day for a week and see if you gain or loose weight. keep adding or subtracting until you dnt gain or loose weight this is known as your maintanance cals. once your here you can just increase the slightly to do a slow bulk 2-400 cals i would say as this seems to be what you are looking to do

1. Why are you trying lose weight when you weigh 165lbs?
2. Need some healthy fats and EFAs in that diet. Replace some of that protein with healthy fats.
3. Liquid diets are fine, but only if you can maintain hunger. If you have issues with hunger, eat some more veggies
"It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"
"Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
