My friend told me drinking a whole bag at once (4 cups), is bad for me, because its to much calcium at once. But then he said, drinking it spaced throughout the day is better, because all the calcium at once is bad. I believe him, but I just wanna clarify it with you guys.

Well, as long as you're not drinking 3/4-1 whole gallon at once. I've heard some people say that it's impossible to drink that much in one sitting without vomitting.

Also, if you drink a lot of milk, make sure to also drink a lot of water, so that you don't get calcium deposits in your urine. Overdoing it could cause kidney/bladder stones.

32 oz. at once doesn't seem like it'd be that much in one sitting, so I don't think you have anything to worry about.

You NEVER EVER want to pass stones. I would space it out more throughout the day. While calcium just may be the most miraculous lifesaving, disease-reversing mineral, if you take in much more than your body is used to, you could end up peeing rocks. Let me tell you from personal exerience, SOLID THINGS DO NOT FEEL GOOD GOING THROUGH YOUR URETHRA. If you are upping your calcium intake, don't take a ridiculous amount all at once, and for your poor peehole's sake, do it very gradually!

Haha, I was talking to some people here at school about bags of milk and they looked at me like I had 2 heads. You guys in the US don't know anything about how to package milk!

Why on earth would you want to drink so much at once?

I'd imagine the boxes and bottles milk come in over here are easier to handle than a bag....though a bag may be more transportation friendly.

I regularly drink a quart of milk at one sitting. I also drink close to a gallon of milk every day. I know Chris Mason drinks at least a quart while working out, and drinks a lot of milk throughout the day. Many of the big lifters from the past based their workouts on squats and a ****load of milk. I don't think you'd have any problem drinking 4 cups of milk at one sitting.

Don't think because chris mason and other lifters do it that it is healthy... these guys are not in the sport for health, and we both know that.

When i lived in Minnesota we had bagged milk at one of the gas stations. They even gave you a plastic pitcher to keep the bag stored in.

Come on now Mitch. As long as you stay fairly active, keep a good amount of water/liquids in ya, you shouldn't have much problems. I'm not sitting here talking about drinking a gallon of whole milk a day. I usually stick to Skim when I can, as does Chris. I don't recommend drinking a gallon of Whole Milk a day. Hell the Saturated Fat in that **** could kill a damn horse.

How much would you have to drink to worry about getting kidney stones? I drink probably 1/2 gallon a day and haven't seemed to have any problems yet, though I've always drank quite a bit of milk.

I always wanted to say this...
"How much for a bag?"(of milk)

GF's Canadian and according to her the bagged milk is a more envoiromentally sound option. Less plastic waste i guess....

They are actually used in a container though, place them in reuseable container and snip corner off to use.

Not sure if i/she explained it correctly, maybe any other Canadians on the board could clarify.

A glass of milk is 2 cups (~500ml) ... so basically you're drinking 2 glasses of milk in one sitting. Big deal.

And yes, Rik, that's the way bagged milk works. Although I prefer cartons. :)

1 bag = 4 cups

Anthony

2 cups = ~500ml = 1 glass
4 cups = ~1L = 2 glasses

Anthony

Actually, 1 bag > 4 cups. If you buy 4L of milk in bags, you get 3 bags. So it's more like 1.33L per bag, which is almost 3 glasses of milk.

Yes, it's perfectly fine...probably unnecessary, but still perfectly fine.

1.33L at once? I'm sure if you did this consistently you would one day run into problems.

I was told that by drinking that much in 1 serving : you're raising your saturated and trans fats levels too quickly. And too much calcium all at once.

Is this true?

What's the difference between drinking it at once or throughout the day? I'm not being sarcastic, just curious.

Not to say I agree with how extreme they go about there ideas, and not to say everything (or anything) on that site is fact. And I WILL still drink me 1.5L of milk everyday! But theres definately some interesting articles on there.

Anthony

So which article explains why drinking 1.5L of milk at once is dangerous VS 1.5L throughout the course of a day? 10,000 years later and I'm still waiting for the health epidemic that milk is going to cause .......

I'm pretty sure a site called "NOTmilk" isn't going to give you any information worth reading at all. When you're basing decisions on something it'd be better to get unbiased information, instead of from a site with a clear agenda. All this bull**** about milk is just that. Bull****. Drinking 1.33L of milk in a sitting isn't going to do anything bad to you in the long run. As far as kidney stones and problems with calcium, as long as you're hydrated throughout the day you won't be having any problems.

I haven't seen bagged milk since 4th grade. Are you robbing little kids to get protein? Not that theres anything wrong with that.

That notmilk site just seems ridiculous. What's that stuff that mothers feed newborns? That's right, it's milk. :idea: I'm going to keep drinking mine.

One persone mentions kidney stones and now nobody wants to drink milk. They time I wouldnt drink milk is when you are drunk, other then that, it perfectly fine.

Think I know the container you're talking about.
