Another SS gallon of milk question

So I'm hooked on SS and I'm going to be drinking lots of milk in the near future... what percent do you guys recommend. Usually I'll go with Skim should I go with the 1 or 2 percent. also usually i have 1 or 2 protein shakes a day should I stop or just keep doing it?

Re: Another SS gallon of milk question

The only point of drinking the milk is to help push skinny kids into getting enough calories; this is the reason whole milk is recommended, and no skim or 1 percent. If you don't need the calories, don't drink the milk; if you do, drink whole milk.

Re: Another SS gallon of milk question

Thanks, read the thread... 8 pages of dairy, I've read other articles that say chocolate milk is actually excellent post-workout drink , plus it is so delicious. What are your thoughts?

Re: Another SS gallon of milk question

Chocolate milk is a good PWO drink because it has the perfect amount of protein:carb ratio (1:4). This ratio is what most people believe to be the best ratio for achieving optimal results from a workout. I know that the amount of sugar in it is good also, but I forget why. This being said, my ratio is 1:1, leaning towards more protein than carbs and I have seen good results.

Re: Another SS gallon of milk question

Drink whole milk. Organic grassfed whole milk, if you can find it. Raw, organic, grassfed if you can afford it (if you can, will you please buy me a car?) "Organic Valley," I believe is a pretty common supermarket brand of grass fed, but maybe someone will correct me on that.

As for chocolate milk: probably heavier on the carbs that you need it to be. Whole milk by itself is just about a perfect Zone meal, so no need to add anything extra to it. If you get anything extra, it should be Protein or Fat, rather than carbs. I'd say stay away from adding the extra junk to your milk and just do the whole milk.

Anyways, the gallon of milk is nothing special. It's just to put you in caloric excess with the right ratios of the right things without a whole bunch of extra junk. If you can get the same macros and calories from other, more varied sources, it'd probably be even better than the milk, but that would get really expensive, and it's not easy to eat that many extra calories of actual food.

That is one of the best threads I have read, Coach Rip is damn funny, but more importantly correct.

I am somewhat lactose intolerant myself and so have been drinking lactose free stuff, currently 2 litres per day but am working up! I have put on about 5kg in three weeks though which isn't bad...

oh, my, that thread was great. I am not a big milk fan- but I just loved watching him kill their saturated fat arguments.

Re: Another SS gallon of milk question

OMG! That Milk it! thread is hilarious. Rip is too funny. Why do someone people have such a hard time accepting something that works in face of conventional wisdom while insisting on seeing a study to back up the claim? Too many textbook trainers out there. Nice to see that Rip is not one of them.
