Some people tend to shy away from milk while cutting because of the crappy carb content.

Usually for breakfast you would want something from all macros, so:

Some low GI carbs (oats)
Some protein (either whey, or egg whites)
some fats, or EFAs (olive oil, fish/flax oil)

ive been eating eggs every morning for the past 1.5 years. They do get old but they are definitly worth eating for the nutritional purpose.

some people respond differently to milk during cutting. i would recommend if considering its use to limit it to skim or non fat.

If you're keeping fat and carbs separate (which I think one should do), this would not be the case.

As Manveet said, it is the "crappy carbs" in milk that make it non-ideal when cutting. That being said, the higher the % of fat in the milk (2% or even whole milk), the lower the # of carbs. Thus, I would actually recommend the milk with the highest fat content.

I usually mix my protein shake with milk.

When I'm cutting, I mix with water. In my opinion, I'd rather eat the extra calories as real food than drink it as milk, especially when I'm cutting.

Yes, whole food is more likely to keep you satiated.
