What The Experts Say

Tell us About Your Attempts

Other Attempts:

The primary reason it is not possible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour is related to stomach capacity.  The capacity of the stomach is about 1 liter (Wardlaw and Insel.  Pespectives in Nutrition, third edition, 1996).  When stomach capacity is exceeded (whether by milk or any other food), the natural response will be vomiting.  The stomach empties into the small intestine at a rate of about 1-3 milliliters per minute. When you figure how long it would take to clear a gallon of fluid from the stomach, it would take almost a day for it to enter the small intestine. The best solution to this is to consume milk along with other foods spread out throughout the day.
 

Post a summary of you attempt for all to see.  If you have pictures and video, feel free to post links to those as well.  Please include milk %, time completed, and how long you hold the milk for.
