In brief: Lactulose
Lactulose is a milk sugar, the atkins diet, or similar low or no carbohydrate diets recommend against dairy products as they contain fat and sugar. The point of the early portion of the diet is to use a less efficient metabolic pathway that burns fat or protein only.
Eating sugars and fats may push you out of the ketotic metabolism into normal metabolism... So you would be thwarting the diet.
