    Yes, you can, but there's a little difference.
    Compare:
    Ешь много лука - Ешь много луковиц
    Ешь много хлеба - Ешь много буханок
    Пей много молока - Пей много пакетов молока
    Пей много пива - Пей много бутылок пива.

    I think "Ешь много лука" is much better.

    What's an uncount noun? Just one that is never used in the plural?

    English equivalents would be things like deer, moose, beer, etc.

    You should study English grammar more carefully. The words you gave (except beer) are regarded as countable nouns in English. They are just always plural. What's more, moose can be both singular and plural. Beer is a uncountable noun. But you can sometimes use it as if it isn't. For example,
    -I'd like two beers please.

    Therefore, лук can be seen as an uncount noun - that's to say, you can't use it in the plural.

    Луковица is just one object. Лук is onions in general.

    A better example for english uncountable nouns is: water.
    You can't say five water, it doesn't make sense.

    I did

    But, it was a good pwning. I learned something. Thanks red!

    So then things like love, hate, anger, fear would be better examples?

    Yes, but there is a difference between:

    Water, beer, paper, string

    and

    Love, hate, fear, bad breath

    The first group are physical uncountable nouns the second group are abstract uncountable nouns.

    What's about "I have many fears?"

    Hmm... good point... maybe fear is a countable noun after all...

    I have only two fears, death and falling into the toilet.

    You are right. Fear is a countable noun. Saibot, please revise your list
