No, skim and low-fat milk does not have more sugar. It has more sugar per calories, and more sugar per fat, and thusly has a much higher glycemic load (fat blunts the insulin response to carbs by slowing their absorption). Fat doesnt make you fat so much as carbs (sugar) makes you fat, so avoid the skim and low-fat milk, actually avoid the skim and low fat anything.

Re: GOMAD even for women?

Got it Ryan, thanks. I looked at the cartons today. While skim has less calories, fat and sugar in absolute terms per 1 cup than 1,2% or whole, the ratio of carbs to fat/protein calories is higher. Is that correct?

Before when I was trying to lean out and decrease BF% it made more sense to drink skim than other types of milk (trying to decrease total calories, period).

Re: GOMAD even for women?

You take the fat out of milk, whats going to replace it?

The ratio of fat, carbs and protein is all off in skim milk.

And seriously,

Christie: So long as you're happy with the rate of improvement you're seeing in your lifts, keep with your current diet. Once you start to stall out though, you might consider adding more milk.

Re: GOMAD even for women?

At the store, whole milk as fewer carbs and g of sugar than nonfat and 1%. Google some facts on the milk types and you'll come across some different numbers but most show whole milk as fewer. I heard they spray the defatted milks with like milk powder or something weird like that.
