    I am lucky enough to have a gallon of fresh raw organic goats milk each day.

    I was making cheese everyday and drinking the leftover whey........but now Iv decided to make cheese every two days and on the other day drink the gallon.

    So my question is....... To gain the maximum weight (im hard gainer) should I drink the milk on training days or rest days?

    Seriously, what has RJ become.

    Are there no nutritionists or trainers out there that can give me an opinion on this?

    Update to the OP.

    I now have about 2litres spare everyday and I have just started a bodyweight calisthenics routine thats aimed at strength and muscle increase.

    Should I drink the 2l per day or stockpile and have 4l every otherday?

    If stockpile then drink on training or rest day?

    Thankyou in advance.

    I would guess that it doesn't matter.

    Back when I was a vegetarian and then a vegan I remember reading about amino acid combining. For example, rice and beans combined contain all of the essential amino acids that we need for protein. An article I'd read said that you don't need to eat them together; you could have rice one day and beans the next and your body would do the right thing.

    I'm wondering if cheese might be easier on your digestive system since I've heard that the lactose in the milk has been converted when it's made into cheese. But maybe that's less of a problem with goats milk.

    Thanks lumpy......

    Yeah, I reviewed the old amino acids combining ideas too.

    I eat a broad spectrum and not necessarily in the same meal - I guess im doing it subconsciously.

    Goats milk is the easiest of milks beside human milk for us to digest. The lactose is in a form that does not cause digestion problems even for lactose intolerant.

    I never had goats milk and it would most likely be very hard to find in most parts of the USA meaning that it could be very expensive.

    Goat milk is 25% carbs, 53% fats and 22% protein. There are some aspects you need to be careful about:

    - If you use it as your main source of calories, just from looking at the macros you'll see that this is not a good choice for someone who clearly needs a bigger appetite. The high amount of fat and protein are not intrinsically bad, but they might have a deleterious effect on your appetite if you go overboard. In other words: you would be a skinny guy wanting to bulk on a low carb diet..
    - If you use it as your main source of protein, it comes with strings attached: you will not only get the protein, but also all the fat and carbs.

    I hope "maximum amount of weight" means muscle. In any case, it's gonna take a very long time for you to gain size, even in 50lbs from now you'll still be lanky, so don't rush and make bad decisions due to high expectations.
