What is substitute for milk

my age 55, from age 30 I am living alone here in city Pune, state Maharashtra, country India (father mother in Mumbai) Eating my morning, evening breakfast, lunch, dinner in hotels. Last 1.5 years I have blood pressure, 2 months back I had very much paining in my chest left side. From next day I stopped my breakfast, lunch, dinner. Now I am only eating fruits, bhopla juice, w.g.juice, lemon juice etc. Stopped drinking milk also. (milk also content some cholesterol) So what I wanted to know is instead of milk what should I eat/drink, because milk is supposed to be complete food.

You cant live forevr on juices? can u? See a dietician, get your diet planned according to your illness & body needs.
Use Low fat milk ( which contains 2 - 3 % fat ) ( amul is easily available in these forms).
You need to eat a balanced diet, along with moderate amount of activity/exercise. Crash dieting is harmful.

Milk substitutes are often derived from either rice or soy. Products like Rice Dream® and Silk® are readily available right next to the usual dairy offerings of milk. These products come in generic brands as well, which many find comparable to name brands. Some products use a milk substitute to replace dairy ingredients like cream. One can find ice creams made by both Rice Dream® and Silk® next to traditional milk or cream frozen confections. Both rice and soymilk are comparable to milk in protein, but lower in saturated fats. Rice milk has a lower protein count than both dairy and soymilk. Some people have difficulty digesting soy and may prefer a milk substitute made from rice. One can also make one’s own milk substitute from soy or rice. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-some-milk-substitutes.htm

Hi i have been askdd by my doc to shift to dexolac as the babies phosphorus levels are high. Baby was in the icu at birth and was treated zerolac and then moved to lactogen. Is dexolac a good substitute. Mother does not generate enough milk and hence we need to provide a milk substitute to the baby
