Default 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.

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.

Variety in your diet is important. Add a litre of yoghurt perhaps. ;-)

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.
