I find myself having almost a litre of milk a day. As well, I eat quite a big of cheese and yoghurt during the day.

How much dair yis too miuch? I really love dairy and milk especially due to the fact that there is a decent amount of fats, carbs and protein in it. But how much is too much?

When bulking I would have at least as much dairy as you've described if not more. I never had any issues.

It's only too much if it is causing you problems.

Breakfast usually consits of a bowl of cereal, large glass of milk, 2-3 pancakes, 2-3 eggs, some potatoes.

Lunch generally consists of a tuna/turkey sandwhich, chicken, rice, veggies, and an apple.

Dinner is a variable.

I also snack between every meal but not huge meals. I get like 300-400 kcal in between every meal. As well, after dinner I snack on almonds, milk, and my ritual cookie :D

Overall, my calorie intake is about 3000, with 175 grams of protein (I weight 165).

almost a litre a day.. lol, that's nothing.

I drink a 2.272L (4 pint) bottle a day. Sometimes I drink a 6 pinter (3.4L).

No problems here.

Did you recently increase your calories? A significant change in your diet (ie starting to bulk) can give you some digestive problems, like gas.

If you're concerned, stop drinking milk for a few days and see if it settles down. My money would be on the calorie surplus, though.

Its fine dude, dairy is super essential IMO on a bulk, milk is full of vitamins, so are cheeses, cottage cheese is holy.

I drink a half gallon of milk every day, plus I eat 1 or 2 yogurts, and usually 2 or 3 sticks of string cheese (mozzarella). It's never caused me any problems. I always put my protein powder in milk, too. Tastes best that way, I think.
