This sounds like a health-food mission out of control, as it's become so restrictive as to endanger nutrition...

The only thing that stood out to me was the consumption of almost 3 gallons of milk per week. More than three 8oz cups of milk per day is considered excessive and can lead to health problems. Too much of anything can cause health problems. One gallon is 16 cups. Consuming almost 3 gallons per week is more than twice the recommended safe amount.

Three cups of milk a day can cause health problems? You can't be too safe out there. What exactly kind of health problems?

That is not what I wrote and I know that your reading comprehension is normally better than that.

Yeah, this is a bit extreme.

It is true that if you have too much calcium intake some people are prone to kidney stones. And that too much protein can cause some kidney problems in some folks. But 3 cups of milk a day for lactose tolerant people is not a health risk at all.

Yeah, read what I wrote. I didn't say that 3 cups of milk daily are a health risk. I said more than that is considered excessive and can lead to health problems, especially if one is consuming more than twice that amount. There are more potential health issues than what you listed that excessive milk consumption can lead to. I think if the OP or anyone else is interested in knowing what they are, they'll research it.

Half a gallon every 2 days on average. A half gallon is 64 ounces, which is 8 cups. That translates into 32 ounces a day, or 4 cups a day. Generally speaking.

Blood work is all good, no kidney problems or stones, calcium levels normal, but thanks for bringing it up, anyway. It's a valid contribution to the discussion. I know a lot of people think "adults should not drink milk" though I realize you didn't actually say that.

I do love a cold glass of milk, or a milky bowl of Nabisco shredded wheat and bran with some frozen blueberries thrown over it. That's 19 grams of protein right there, 7 grams for the cereal and 12 grams for the cup and a half of milk I pour over it. Plus 58 grams of whole grains and 8 grams of fiber.

And the frozen blueberries make it all so cold and slushy and sweet. Almost as good as that pint of Haagan Dazs we were talking about earlier, but more nutrition and without the fat and added sugar. I can live with that.

Her intake is just fine.

The daily upper limit for calcium for adults 51 years and older is 2,000 mg. That is around eight and a half 8oz. glasses of whole milk. Of course that is not taking into consideration calcium from other dietary sources.

Is it possible to increase your intake of these foods you are able to prepare by increasing serving sizes or adding in an extra meal? I realize it's not fully balanced or varied but the extra nutrients would help your recovery.

Did these work out?
I never answered your question about the RXBARS. They aren't bad. A little higher in sodium than one would wish, but I took one with me yesterday when I had an early doctor appointment and then had to run some errands, and ate it in my car with a bottle of water to wash it down. Another time I ate one to keep me going until I could get my real meal made, because I forgot to eat and got started making it kind of late..

Normally I would just have an apple in these types of situations, I do eat an apple a day without fail, always have. But while an apple is good, it doesn't offer much substance. Plus I had to take a pill while I was out and about, one of those "take with food" types, so the bar fit the bill for that too.
