for a MD.

Hypothetical question. Could you live off of only Whole Vitamin D milk and multivitamins for any period of time? Or would it be the same as just drinking water etc....? I hear milk is technically a food.....

Hello

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Milk has proteins, carbohydrates and some fat as well.

mysticdoc :

Hence, technically you can live off of milk and multivitamins.

mysticdoc :

Definitely better than water.

mysticdoc :

Milk does provide some balanced nutrients in that sense along with multivitamins.
