At 1 pound per 4lt (which provides 1300ish cals, and 100 grams of protein) is milk the ultimate bulking food?
Or am i missing something?

Hmm.. Yeah check this out..

"Ask any nutrition expert, the best diet for bulking up is 50 percent carbs, 35 percent protein and 15 percent fats. Match that up with the content of semi-skimmed milk and you'll find that milk is the perfect nutrition. It could be the cheapest MRP there is. Per liter you get 440 calories, just below what most MRP's supply, giving you 48 grams of carbs, 32 grams of protein and 15 percent fats."

"Calcium is known best of all as a promoter of healthy and strong bones. But it plays a critical role in performance as well. Too little calcium and you can't relax your muscles. Bad relaxation, makes for less potential energy and so on and ultimately for less than satisfactory contraction. Bad contraction equals bad workouts and no growth. Get the picture? By improving relaxation you avoid cramping, injury and twitching. Calcium is also very important in fat metabolization, so no cigar for the people who claim milk is fattening. It makes for less fat storage and better use of present macronutrients in the blood. Using the recommended FDA dosage has shown to decrease body-fat significantly in obese people. It's no secret that the RDV (recommended daily values) were established back in the 60's and 70's for a 2000 calorie diet."

If you can handle the lactose then go for it. Myself, being borderline lactose intolerant, I have to limit my daily intake.

4 litres of milk is way more than 1300 calories.

Skim milk may be different, the skim milk I get is 1200cal for 4 litres

What the crap is this 4 liters of milk stuff? It's a gallon, 128oz. Anyway, yeah, I like cereal with 2% milk and peanut butter. That's what I snack on often when I do my bulking runs. I guess I understand why some people use skim milk if they are trying to fit it into their macros but really, it's not worth the horrible taste and loss of good fat for me. I've been told I have a milk allergy but so far it only gives me a bit of gas, well, more than a bit. I guess that's why I'm fond of cereals with a lot of fiber...

Milk is good but I think yogurt is slighty better for you. Basically same nutrition but you get a lot of good probiotics in yogurt.

well, outside the USA there are other countries and in most of these they use a far more advanced system known as the "metric system"... since this site is on the internet people from those other countries contribute and post as well. (my best effort at sarcasm.. how did i do! HA HA)
