In some articals on T Nation I have read that milk is a good thing to include in your diet, in other places I have read that dairy in general should be kept to a minimum.
I have been a fat bloke and recently lost my excess blubber. My current goal is to maintain (or better yet reduce) my BF% and add some lean mass and I drink about a pint of semi skimmed milk a day.
If I thought it could be detrimental to what I am trying to achieve I would stop drinking it.
Anyone have an opinion?[/quote]
Yeah. You’re fat because you’ve consumed more calories than you’ve burned for an extended period of time, not because you’ve consumed milk. You’re a northern European, which means you’re probably lactose tolerant.
If you want to lose weight, cut your daily calories by 300-500 until the pounds start coming off. Drink your milk and do your squats.
Of course, this advice has been repeated time and time again on this forum by numerous people besides myself, and we still have the same milk paranoia for some bizarre reason.
