I've read a couple posts here where people suggested that too much dairy promotes fat storage....can somebody expand on this?

I usually eat about a cup of nonfat yogurt, a cup of skim milk, a slice of low fat cheese and a cup of lowfat cottage cheese every day, so I'm wondering if I should cut back........

Im not sure about fat storage, but i read something about the sugar content, and something along the lines as it makes you look round, or bloated ?

the only problem i find with too much milk is that it has a good amount of cholestoral in it. i wouldn't worry if i were you; i eat a WHOLE LOT MORE dairy than that daily, and it hasn't affected my weight. :(

Last I read, dietary cholesterol has little effect on your body's healthy/unhealthy levels of cholesterol.

I don't know that milk is all that good. Many people have allergies to it and drinking high amounts of it usually creates mucus. ALso to digest lactose properly enzymes are needed. To digest milk their is extra stress on the body. I still drink skim milk every day with oatmeal or cereal but I'am looking for a alternative. I've come accross a few articles which are heavily against milk. It's hard to know who to trust though. Which info is reputable. I guess till i find more info i'll just continue drinking it. There could be a concern with the hormone bgh added to milk. How healthy are these cows. ext..

There's no correlation between diet and acne.

Cons: ^ See previous posts
Pros: Cheap source of calories/proteins
Easy to drink and pack the calories when bulking
Calcium +Vitamins
Taste good

I'd say that 12 liters of milk a week is exaggerated unless on a very high calorie diet, I calculated and that's about 800 calories a day from milk alone. Add yogurt, cottage cheese, butter or cheese and that makes a lot of calories from dairy.

Yogurt contains particularly healthy bacterias.

HUH? certain foods will make your skin more oily. Too much chocolate will do the job. ALso sometimes your body can't get rid of all the bacteria and it will come out threw your skin in eczema or acne.

As far as im lead to believe, more fat = more testosterone = worse skinThis is very true of milk. EFA's however have been shown to actually HELP one's skin.

Sucks for me though, at 5000 cals theres no avoiding a high amount of fat.

didn't Arnold use to drink 2 quarts of milk as his post-workout meal?

I think milk's fine as long as it's non-fat, you watch the carbs, and aren't lactose intolerant.

I just tried some rice milk from whole foods store. It's actually pretty good. I think i'am going to switch to that and take all cow milk out of my diet. See if I notice anything different.

Dairy is great: milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, all of them preferrably lowfat of course. It's got calcium, superb source of protein, and it supposedly helps in fat loss. The only "bad" thing about it just that it has sugars in them, although it's not even a lot and as long as you factor them into your total daily caloric intake it really shouldn't be a big deal.
