    How much milk does everyone drink in here?

    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.

    i think 6-8 pints of milk is a good amount for most

    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 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 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.

    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.
