24 ounces of milk

I had surgery last summer, and was on massive amounts of steroids both before and after the operation. I gained alot of weight. Most of it was water, but some of it was because the steroids just made me so hungry that I ate constantly. I saw a television commercial that drinking 24 ounces of milk every 24 hours would help you lose weight. It actually works! Since I started this, I've lost 8 pounds! Has anyone else been successful with this?

I have never heard of it. I really don't like milk, but if it works for you I will give it a try.

Well, I have now lost 13 pounds. It seems that the milk takes away the hunger craving, which for me is great. Because I love to snack.

Got Milk - I hope that this works.
I've seen this commercial too. I was wondering if it actually worked. I will have to try this. Thanks for the idea.

I've lost 13 pounds over about 2 months. I feel better, I've had back surgery, and since increasing my milk intake, I'm not having the back spasms that I was before as badly. I also have fingernails again! Let me know how you come out!

I've seen that comercial too but I can't stand to drink milk so haven't tried it. Long story but years ago I guzzled some "bad" milk - haven't been able to drink a glass since.

I understand totally. When I was pregnant with my son, I got deathly ill (morning sickness in the afternoon) after eating iceburg lettuce and tomato on a sandwich. I have not been able to eat either one since. Isn't that just too funny how we relate to things like that?

The calcium in low fat (not fat free) dairy products is supposed to help you stabilize your cravings. I know I eat healthier all around when I pay attention and get my dairy. I believe it can help lose weight. I just am not consistent enough to see the total proof. Don't you feel better since starting this as well. I know I do when I am focussed on that kind of a healthy choice.

Yes, I do feel better, and seem to have more energy. My fingernails are growing again! They aren't splitting like they had been. I can't help but believe it's the extra calcium!
