Man subsisting on wife's breast milk

A man's diet: his wife's breast milk.
Well, this is a new one. A man named Curtis has begun blogging about his attempts to eat or drink nothing but his wife's massive stash of breast milk for as long as he possibly can. Decide for yourself it you think it's legit.

The wife says she's accumulated 162 gallons of the liquid food through the course of birthing and breast-feeding three children. On the blog, she explains that donating the milk wasn't a practical option, so her 6-foot-4, 185-pound husband decided to use it as a food source, drinking 66 ounces a day to get his recommended 2,000 calories.

After three days, things seem to be going rather well. On day two, he penned:



Hunger is pretty much nonexistent and manifests itself mostly as thirst. I quench the thirst 16 ounces at a time, and that keeps me satisfied from 2 to 4 hours. I feel good, happy on a full belly, and I feel that it should go well. I may even be sad when all the milk is gone from the freezer...

Follow the blog to see how long he lasts. Will he start to tire of the liquid breast milk and turn it into ice cream or cheese?

Gotta be fake. How does a woman compile 162 GALLONS of breast milk while breastfeeding three children. There are probably some details missing, but from what I read above, I'm gonna call B.S.

This is sad. I agree with V.  May God change wife and husband's mind to donate.

First women eating placenta, now men drinking breast milk. Babies creep me out. PEOPLE creep me out.

Why can't they donate it? Article did not explain the reason why. Women who donate their breast milk get a letter from their physician and also have tests done to prove that it is healthy milk before they can donate. I donated breast milk to Stanford Hospital, but that was a long time ago. I think it's extrememy selfish of this man to consume the milk when there are babies & preemies especially, that can only consume mother's milk to survive!. The wife's milk could save lifes. Apparently the husband's health does not require it to save his life-duh! What some people will do for attention....

Looks like the blog has been shut down, but if I recall correctly, the wife said she had donated milk in the past, but this time she had been taking medications while pumping which prohibited her from donating to a bank. She said she then attempted a direct donation, but there were more complications related to the recipient wanting her to pay for a test that insurance didn't cover and shipping the milk, which would have been a significant expense for their family.
