Milk only
Has anyone tried doing a span of a few weeks of living on milk (with proper supplements such as fish oil) alone? I tried looking up information on it but I must have been looking in the wrong spots 'cause I couldn't find much helpful information on it.

I think the diarrhea would make you lose weight.

Don't listen to these wimps. Please try and tell us about it after.

I'm debating trying it. But, now after thinking about it, I would make it milk, veggies, and fruit. In regards to dehydration, milk is composed of a lot of water, plus whatever water I intake during working out and pre-post workout shakes.

Babies seem to do fine on milk alone so go for it, man. And tell us how it works out.

Seriously, though... Why?

I love milk tons, so I figured why not try it to see how it goes. I'm thinking about doing 2 gallons/day so calories won't be an issue.

This is likely a bad idea. Please let us know how it goes

Having done it several times, I'd like to throw in that it's possible to drink 2 gallons of milk in a single day and not get diarrhea, or any intestinal problems at all. However, I wouldn't see a pure-milk diet as being particular enjoyable. Interesting, yes, but not enjoyable, and quite possibly unhealthy too.

I'm a sucker for trying new things and seeing how my body responds. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated.
