Hi all,
As a relatively newcomer to weightlifting, I was wondering why skimmed milk isn't mentioned more as a super-food.

I drink around 4-5 pints a day.

Any thoughts on this?

Best regards,
Mike

Some people consider milk too high in carbs for BB purposes. I beleive it has about 12 gm carbs per cup. The sugar in milk is lactose which is a simple sugar and too much of it will probably be stored as fat. However many people swear by it while bulking.

rofl that is what a lot of old body builders swore by, milk and squats, idrink about 30oz per meal, 3 times a day, so whatever that equals out to....milk is some of the best **** on earth, just make sure your going fat free my friend

cool guys! I also love the stuff, and only drink skimmed, so good to hear that I can continue guzzling...

Next question: what about beer? :-)
