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.

Likely would cause terrible acne.


Is there a point to it?

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.
