Thanks, knoxie - that was very helpful. Based on this, it looks like this MILK AND YOGHURT diet is a backup, in case a person can't follow the regular diet. This is the second paragraph of the pamphlet - emphasis added:

This is an alternative eating plan if you feel unable to follow the regular
meal ‘normal’ food diet
as discussed with the specialist dietitian. This diet
is a milk and yoghurt diet. This will have a similar effect on your liver in
reducing its size

Personally, I also wonder about the warning that even ONE normal meal will undo the liver-shrinking effects of the milk diet, but that might just be arrogance on the part of the docs, since EVERYONE KNOWS that people who qualify for WLS are notoriously noncompliant [NOT!]
