Aggieboy saidHey fellas i just wanted to get your thoughts on milk. I drink a lot of milk every day, but lately I have begun to think that maybe milk is hindering my goal of getting lean and ripped. Along with milk I take in the Kashi brand that has 10 g of protein per serving..
Anyway, anyone feel this way also?
Milk is an excellent source of protein. I think it can be extremely beneficial when trying to bulk. I drink at least half a gallon every day (and mix it with whey protein) when in a bulking phase. BUT, if you're trying to cut, it's useful to remember to choose skim or 1% so you're not taking in as much fat. But of course, your carbs/protein/fats should still be in proportion using a lower caloric intake value.
Having said that, I LOVE milk. Lol. For people like me who have a naturally small appetite, it's very useful when factoring in your calorie count because it doesn't make you as full as quickly as whole foods. As long as you don't go overboard, I don't see a problem with milk as a good source of protein. Even though it's slightly more expensive, it's good that you're choosing organic.
