Bunjamon saidSounds like a crock to me. Milk is a protein-rich drink that's low in fat, high in calcium and vitamins, and tasty. I think it makes protein shakes taste a whole lot better.
Whey protein COMES from milk. Adding milk to it cannot negate it's effects.
Milk is low in fat? Oh, where or where did you do the math on that?
2% milk has 8 grams of fat for every 488 grams (2 cups). It's LOADED with fat, in fact, so much so that it's more that McDonald's fries.
Whole milk has almost 16 grams of fat for every 488 grams (2 cups).
Whey protein used to be considered a by product in cheese production. Cheese is the fattie part of milk. Whey protein is the stuff that's left over from that process.
Adding milk fat to protein adds fat, and LACTOSE, which many folks don't digest well.
Milk also has considerable sugar, about 5 grams for every 2 cups, and 22 grams of carbs for that same measure.
Did you even look at the nutrition values before your post?
The fat content of milk will slow the absorption of the carbs, to some extent, and that may not be what you want post work out.
Milk is NOT that protein rich, having only about 15 grams of protein in two cups (488 grams). Beef, for 488 grams, has 115 grams of protein in contrast, and fish even more. Milk is HARDLY protein rich in comparison.
You're completely clueless on this.
