I searched and found nothing to answer my question:

How much milk do you guys drink that are in a routine to gain muscle and weight fast? I think I drink 2-3 glasses a day. I have seen some people say they drink a gallon a day and I don't see how that is possible when you are also supposed to be drinking about a gallon of water a day. Give me recommendations please. Thanks.:)

I agree in most cases. If you're really drinking a gallon of milk a day I highly doubt you're drinking nearly enough water.

So do you buy pints of milk at the grocery store? I can see a person drinking pints of milk since it's easy to carry around and to have before you go workout, but I don't see how you can drink 6-8 pints in glass form. Do you measure the milk in a measuring cup first?

I drink 4-6 litres of water per day, and just about a full gallon on milk per day.

I follow Arnold's advice. Milk is for babies, drink beer.

I drink about 2/3 of a gallon a day, a 1/2 gallon of which I drink during office hours. I'm so glad I got a mini-fridge for my cube, it's been working out well. $70 at Sears for a nice Kenmore. I just bring in a new gallon every 2 days.

I drink 2% milk when I need the calories and I'm not hungry. Even on a bulk, I try to eat as many calories as possible.

This is one of the best things I have learned at WBB forums so far. I never thought of it that way. So in theory you could just replace water with milk and you are still drinking 4:5 ratio of water to milk! Thanks for the info.

I live in China and it's markedly more expensive to get whole milk than it is to get soy milk, so it's soy milk ftw out here. I'll treat myself to whole every now and then, but I'd estimate I have 1/4 gallon of soy milk daily.

ktm

1/2 gallon of whole milk a day

I drink a gallon of skim milk every 2 days, with my protein shakes. I also drink about a gallon of water everyday. I drink skim because im naturally huge and i need to cut fat all the time.

None, because if I downed a gallon every other day I'd be poor from buying it all the time.

I dont know where some of you guys live but around me I can get a gallon for like 3 bucks. Thats not that much, not even 10 a week, but I also dont know your situations.

RedSpikeyThing

6-10 cups a day at 2%. How many cups are in a gallon anyway?

Murmur
09-25-2006, 08:55 PM
I get in roughly half a gallon per day @ 2 percent.

2 8 ounce cups per pint. 2 pints per quart and 4 quarts per gallon so a gallon has 16 8 ounce cups. I believe this is right. Right?
