Continuing the discussion from Supplement Advice for Size?:
To avoid further hijacking that kid's thread.
If you could explain what I'm missing, I'm all ears. Seriously, I'm open to hear.
You said: "I would try hemp milk or almond milk rather than cow's milk. Much more nutrient dense than cow's milk."
I said: "[...] hemp milk is not "much more nutrient dense than cow's milk". Almond milk is even less so; it's essentially almond-flavored water with added vitamins."
Cow's milk (whole milk, not skim or reduced fat) is absolutely more nutrient dense than hemp milk or almond milk because it delivers more protein, fat, and total calories per serving. Admittedly, I haven't compared them on a micronutrient level because that wasn't relevant to the original thread (a 17-year old, 5'11", 145-pound kid trying to gain weight).
