I had to take a pretty hardcore prescription drug for about 6 months back in 2006 and my doctor told me I'd pretty much keel over on the spot if I had more than one or two beers with this particular medication, so I stopped drinking altogether for 6 whole months. The two things I remember thinking over and over again during that trek through the desert where:

1) Where did all this extra money in my bank account come from...geez my mom was right, I DO drink too much.

2) ALL of my friends and all the random girls in the bars are unbearably abnoxious after they've had a few beers.....at least when I'm sober.

In the end, once I was off the medication, I concluded that it is better for everyone to just live in nicely buzzed bliss.

My hat goes off to you. I couldn't do it. I'm a light eater to begin with and fairly thin. If I start skipping meals it really messes with me. I'd be careful though. I don't know what the time frame is, but if you go too long without hard food you'll have to wein back on to it. My mom did one of those liquid diets back in the day and she had a really hard time transitioning back to regular food. I think she went for a month or two though. Good luck.

When I first saw the thread title, I jumped to conclusions and felt compelled to follow up and say "You're doing it wrong.".

Now that I've read your OP, I have to say:

You're doing it right.
