    So I have added about 5 glasses of low fat milk to my daily diet to help add more calories to my intake. It is about 110 cal per serving and 8 gram of protein per serving. I usually mix into my protein shakes and also have a glass right before bed to pump some protein into my body while I am sleeping. Has anyone else tried drinking more milk on top of their diet and do you think it will cause you to just gain fat?

    Skim milk contains virtually zero fat and zero cholesterol. I drink at least a quart or two per day.
    Many if not most people are cornfoosed about low fat milk, 1%, 2% 3% etc..and think wow 2% seems pretty low... well it isn't. There is cholesterol in every milk but skim, the cholesterol is in the fat they contain.

    3% milk contains about 8.5 grams of fat per serving
    2% milk contains about 5 grams of fat per serving
    1% milk contains about 2 grams of fat per serving
    Low fat milk? not sure,, that varies by jurisdiction but it still has fat in it.
    That's a lotta fat if you drink a few glasses a day regardless of which you choose
    That's why skim is the best choice.

    Also a lot of folks say.. yuk they can't drink skim milk.. well once you start drinking it you'll soon be saying you can't stomach anything but skim milk.

    Chocolate milk (partially skim) is also good for post workout within 15-30 minutes provided you aren't diabetic etc.

    You need to define what a serving is otherwise it's pointless
