Hi lybrate user, first of all I would like to tell you don't be disappointed, some times it takes time. Try to loose your weight naturally, you have to do some dietary changes and physical activity. Take small & frequent meal (2 major meal and 3-4 small meal). Avoid taking heavy dinner. Cut or stop simple sugar and simple carbs, preserved, tinned and canned products from diet. Avoid outside food. Try to take 4-5 meals of green leafy vegetables & fruits. Take green tea once in a day. Take sufficient water (8-10 glasses in a day). Start work out approx for 30-40 minutes daily like brisk walk, running, jogging, skipping, swimming whatever you like.

I do not know why you want to be only on milk. Anyways. If you have decided it, it will be better to consume Indian Cow milk. Avoid that of jersey and holstein friesian. Boil the milk very well. Consume it lukewarm. Avoid cold milk. If abdominal sounds trouble you, reduce the quantity of milk. Adding one-tablespoon pure ghee in a glass of lukewarm milk will benefit. Indian philosophy categorizes diet into three viz. Satvika, Rajasa and Tamasa. Satvika diet (Aahara) need not include only milk. If you follow the Ayurveda guidelines for Aahara, you will hardly be unhealthy.
