I drink lots of skim milk, maybe a quarter a day, but not a gallon. Main reason is the sugar.
12/g sugar in crap load of servings per gallon.

My problem with milk is not the calories/sugar/sodium/fat its the way its made. Everyone knows our agriculture is cost oriented so they dont sweat too much about the final product, just the bottom line. Unles you are getting guaranteed organic milk, there are a couple differences. The broke farmer these days isnt investing in quality food for the cows, not even hay or grains... Often times they eat the beet from sugar refineries, wastes from breweries, potatoes, etc. Then the cows get sick and everyone starts shooting them with antibiotics to try to make the poor thing live a little longer. From there its a trial and error: if 1 antibiotic helps then alright, if not then lets shoot another few and see what happens. These arent patients with a health file and a family physician, just tens of thousands of animals, obviously care isnt the same. The pasteurizing process also eliminates many of milk's nutritional properties, and makes the calcium very difficult to actually digest.
The process of homogenization (forcing milk through a tiny passage at insane amounts of pressure) in turn make the milk globules very small. Usually those globules are big and can't penetrate into the blood stream, but after this process they are broken down and get into the blood stream clogging arteries.
Just playing the devils advocate, I dont wanna spend a bunch of money on organic milk when I can get all the same nutrients elsewhere. Plus Milk REALLY slows my digestion I dont know about anyone else. I remember when I was trying to gain weight a few years ago and drank all my shakes with milk. While at the same time it worked, I felt very bloated for a long time and only found relief when I cleansed my colon. I guess its good for some and not for others.
I'd love to find Raw Milk, but im in Spain...and on a military base. Very limited resources.
Either way, I havent been drink a gallon a day, but i've been chugging as much as I can, whenever I can. I plan to do it while im on my stack, then when I PCT, i'll drop the milk and just be protein and food...
(Btw, only reason im not taking protein is the exchange only sells ****ty kind and way over priced, 34$ for 2.5lbs. I just ordered a 10lbs bag for 74$, so it should be here next week.)
