Drinking only milk and not eating anything

Has anyone of you drank only milk for a long time without eating anything? not to lose weight or necessary to maintain weight, but as a test?
I've done a test on a short term to see how my body would react and nothing bad happened. I'd like to try this on a longer term now, because I'm taking enough calcium and protein from 2-3 liters of milk everyday. plus, I still have the energy to jump rope when I come home at 5 p.m and I'm awake from 4-5 a.m.
If you want to tell me this is insane, it would be a waste of time, taking in consideration the fact that some of us have stronger bodies. if I will feel different and I must stop, then I will. but i'd like to know if I should expect anything. i don't have lactose intolerance and i always drank milk

    What is the purpose of the test?

    Do you have a goal? Or is there a point?

    As an infant. It seems to have worked out okay. Not cow's milk, though.

    I think I heard that in the UK, they have patients drink only milk for several days before gastric bypass surgery. It shrinks the liver, or something like that.

    Milk alone isn't appropriate nutrition for a BABY, let alone an adult...

    Yes. I did this from birth to about 9 months old with no ill effects. I haven't tried it since, though. I think if I tried it now, I'd feel like crap because I wouldn't be getting enough iron, fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, or potassium.

    Breastmilk is appropriate nutrition for a baby, but that's because it contains a lot more nutrients than the cow's milk that adults drink. Not sure I'd go on a milk-only diet as an adult though...

    My friend became lactose intolerant BECAUSE he drank too much milk. He bought a load of Nesquik as a student and ended up drinking 2 pints a day for a solid couple of weeks. Safe to say he quickly gave up once his body started rejecting it. Besides, it doesn't have all the nutrients to sustain a person anyway. I wouldn't risk it...

    my friend's mom existed on 1/2 cup of milk 3 times a day for about a year and a half. it's all she would accept to eat. but she had dementia and was in a nursing home. other than that, it seems rather drastic. and she went from around 115 pounds to around 78 to 80 pounds when she did pass away. it wasn't a good thing for her or her family.

    Milk blows. I haven’t had a glass of milk in 20+ years.

    As a mental health therapist, I have worked with a handful of clients who have disordered eating where they severely limit themselves to one or two types of food...it is not healthy nor recommended. I'd recommend you talk to your doctor about what you are eating and how often...they're probably going to recommend you talk to a mental health professional.
