    It is at the rate of about half to 3/4 of a gallon daily. I drink an inordinate amount of water too before and after work outs; but crave something a bit more thick in liquid....And; they say milk does a body good? Hmmm...Any idea's would help.
    Thank you~

    I make my own, so, it's unpasteurized. The whole activia thing is really ridiculous compared to Kefir.

    kefir has more protein, less sugar, is full of helpful bacteria, and packs more nutritional punch than milk (plus kefir also has fiber). no contest: you should sub the milk out for servings of kefir. please do not ask to use my bathroom until you get some of that whey out of your bowels. think of the children.

    I've been doing it about six years along with kombucha.

    It's really easy to make and cheaper than purchasing it. I make cheese out of it and cottage cheese. Sometimes I take all the whey out and just drink that. Great stuff.

    Whole milk that is unhomogonized, sold in a glass bottle with the cream on top, is healthy for you and delicious, if you can find/afford it. The fat molecules are too large for the body to break down, so it's not like drinking homogenized whole milk.

    Dairy is one of the most commonly reported food allergies [Source: Rona, Nowak-Wegrzyn]. Even when not seen as a specific allergy, milk is frequently not tolerated by the gastrointestinal tract [Source: Nowak-Wegrzyn]. This is a problem that can extend beyond lactose intolerance. For many, milk can cause bloating, constipation and even reflux. Clinically, milk may also be linked to increased eczema, worsening sinus problems, migraine headaches and joint pain [Source: Grant]. Milk is considered a mucus-producing food and is clinically thought to aggravate congestion.{EmphasisAdded} One Johns Hopkins physician, Dr. Frank Oski, has even written a book that shares his experiences of decreased rates of strep throat infection once children removed milk from their diets [Source: Oski]. Often, these conditions resolve or improve when milk is removed or eliminated from the diet.

    The bottom line: if you've drank milk all your life and never had any problems with it, digesting it, allergies,, all the "possibles" such articles claim, then there's no problem. , Millions upon millions and millions of people drink it with absolutely no problem. Many articles always seem to have something else to sell or a tie in to some "health store product"

    I have been getting most of my dairy from greek yoghurt and cottage cheese just because the protein-to-carb ratio is higher than in milk. I try to keep my diet at about 40% protein, 40% carbs and 40% fat without being obsessive about it. Have no issues with digestion, congestion, etc.

    the fat molecules are broken from homogenization . I grew up on a dairy farm, as soon as the milk entered the bowl tank , it was cooled and stirred constantly to break up the fat. That's why the cream could never be whipped .
    Nowadays i don't know what they do. I know the mega farms ( 100% robotized ) have their own trucks and the milk goes directly into them , then taken to factories for processing. .

    When the milk is taken from the farms to the dairy facility all of the milk is pasteurized, homoginized and skimmed. Vitamin A & D are added. Then the butterfat that was removed in that initial skimming is put back in to the milk in varying degrees to make the milk you see on the shelves ex. 1% 2% 3%.. none gets added back for skim milk, That's how it's kept consistent.
    Nothing else is added. Possibly the only thing even considerable is whether the cattle were treated with BGH (illegal in Canada and Europe) but many large grocers in the USA don't sell milk from cattle that was treated with it either because their customers are aware now.. Kroger for example is BGH free.
