Could anyone tell me if they think (if you like to drink milk) drinking 2% milk would help bulking in any way? Also, whould there be any advantages to mixing your protein powder with milk vs water? Thanks for you help! Peace..:cool:

well milk and protein surely tastes a lot better. Plus you get a mixture of protein. The protein from the powder will be digested quickly, and that from the milk will take longer.. I think, but who knows. I'm clearly unknowledgable when it comes to such things as diet. :mad: :cry:

2 % will help with bulking in large amound..i think its bout 13 g carbs and 6g protean per 8oz..so its pretty good..if u can handle all the lactose:)

2% would probably be better for bulking because of teh additional calories. It also makes protein shakes taste better, have aditional calories, and more and varied sources of protien.
Hope that helps.

Protien mixed with milk is fine except post-workout because it will slow digestion, and 2% milk can help you get in some extra cals while bulking.

so you'd mix your protein with water after a workout? not as tasty, but i see your point about the different rates fo digestion. I suppose a banana would help things out

Personally I'd stick to skim milk and get your fats in the form of efa's.

Skim milk + whey powder + 1 tsp flax oil = yummy and much healthier

My strength coach just got back from a conference where one of the presenters, a physiologist who had just completed an extensive study on the effectiveness/absorption of "recovery drinks," recommended that lowfat chocolate milk fared as good or better than the expensive sports drinks because it had a nice blend of carbs/protein...and was much, much cheaper than a lot of the commercial concoctions. I thought that was very interesting :)

Chocolate milk also has alot of sugar for recovery.

Not to mention how fierce and intimidating those milk moustaches look.

Post w/o consume protein with a simple carb. at a 4 to 1 carb/protein ratio.

Other times consume protein with complex carbs.

One supplements the other.
