It seems like there is no consensus on milk products for bodybuilding - some say it’s great (“squats and milk!”), many suggest to stay away and not overindulge.
I, personally, love milk products and think that they are great for those who are not lactose intolerant.
However, are there any recommendations out there as to upper limit intake of mil products for healthy adults?
I recently discovered Trader Joe’s cottage cheese, yogurt, kefir (all 1-2% fat) and I like their taste so much that I can easily consume 800-900 calories a day from these sources (including milk and cheese). This is a significant increase in dairy consumption as compared to before; it’s like my body craves yogurt/cottage cheese now.
Given that I’m 165lb and my daily intake is probably 2500 (I’ve never really calculated, but I eat clean pretty much non-stop), is it OK to get 1/3 of calories from milk products? Any possible downsides?
