View Full Version : Milk!?!?!

Why does everyone dis milk all the time? Is it really that bad? I always kinda thought of milk as the perfect food, it's got carbs, fat, and protein (and if it's 1 or 2% milk then it's in a pretty good ratio too). It has both whey and casein protein too (correct me if I'm wrong). So why is everyone so down on milk?

Yeah but what's so bad about lactose? Is it that a good percentage of people are lactose intolerant? If so then I don't really give a fack cause I know I'm not.

what does it mean when you are lactose intolerant and drink milk?
and how do you find out?:confused:

It means you can't digest milk or something, and you get really sick when you try.

I find milk as one of the best things for bulking up, I can see why alot of people dont like it since all the lactose in it.

past doubt: because it's sugar.

bah. it's because of a something wrong in your genetic code. your body can't produce enough of or cannot produce all together, the enzyme, (enzymes are either amino acids, or proteins) lactase that binds with the lactose in the milk. so you can't digest it.

I always use 1% or skim for my protein shakes and a bit on my oatmeal. Great stuff. I could never give up milk.

Does anyone happen to know how many grams of sugar a glass of milk has in it?

Man when i'm eating for bulk i drink 1/2 - 1 gallons of 2% / day

Milk is great... Lactose is a sugar but a slow-digested sugar.(very low gi).I use skim or low fat milk.Well,sometimes I put some single cream in my coffee tuttut

i love milk. i also love this stuff i can get called vlaue whey or something like that, has 20 grams of whey per serving and has 72 servings per jug. cost like 30 bucks and tastes great(chocolate). anyway i asked why the isolate whey was cheaper but you get less, he said they filter out the lactose in the iolate product cause people tend to get bloated or feel uncomfortable with the lactose. me, i can handle it, no problem. good value too. so watch out, those who are lactose intolerant, those whey powders can have lactose too. just a note to ponder next time you are in you local health food store.

The first time I had a whey concentrate shake,I got bloated.I used to have some problems with lactose but I started eating some yoghurts with added good bacteria (l-bifidus etc) and then I could handle it.
