The basic milk diet includes:

Exclusive raw milk diet for at least three weeks
Rest during the diet, preferably bed rest (though Macfadden’s patients did not always do this).

The philosophy:
Raw milk is a nutrient-dense food.
Liquid is more easily absorbed than solid food.
In about one month, you are loading your body with nutrition, the tools to rebuild its ailing parts.
Rest allows your body to focus its energy on healing, not on exerting.
