Well I mean you've got to build up your tolerance, I started at just one gallon a day, we all gotta start somewhere ;-)
Seriously though it's like my body is in a constant anabolic state cause I drink it pretty evenly spread out through the day. I actually started shortly before my USP Anabolic Pump log, because I realized I could get away with drinking more milk without gaining tons of fat.
I dunno I am coming back from a couple months off and coming back fast I feel like my milk consumption has been helping out big time.

I used to go big on the skim milk, but it always gave me a "softer" look. I used to use it when bulking, but now I avoid most dairy, except for non-fat cottage cheese in my pre-bedtime shake because cassien absorbs the slowest of all proteins, therefore being ideal to promote anabolism whilst asleep..

2 gallons a day?
Have you taken into consideration the fact that per serving there is more sugar than protein in milk?
So if a gallon is 16 cups, and there is roughly 13g sugar per cup, thats 208 grams of SUGAR, lactose none the less. And up that to 2 gallons, and you are looking at 416 grams of lactose sugar.

Yeah man.... I dunno about that. I used skim milk for the longest time, and wondered why I looked "Soft" all the time. Not chubby by any means, but I couldn't get that sculpted look. After I started using water with my protein drinks, I leaned out like crazy. After 2 weeks there was a noticable difference. I dunno about 2 gallons a day??!! That is a ****load of milk sugar.

There is over 2000mg of sodium in just one gallon. That can make you look a little soft if you have been running lower sodium prior.

What if we could get the farmers to start the cows on low sodium/low sugar diets? Certainly that should help us fitness

dammn, I wonder how much milk a cow produces in a day, it may be worth you buying one at that ammount lol

Even though milk does have alot of sugar....I alwasy though that milk had a fairly low G.I?? Am I wrong?? I only drink dairy two times a day anyway....maximum 3. Someone clear this up??

So the general concensus seems to be that it is great for bulking, but gives more of a "bulky" look...what's your opinions on 2%/Whole?

Another positive I've found about milk....works wonders for me to get over a hangover (of course as long as you're not hungover to the point where you really can't stomach anything lol).

That sounds like some really great and solid progress bro...congrats. Consider yourself lucky man...as you can probably tell, I'm an advocate of milk lol, especially for putting on some quality muscle and lbs. My body type probalby leans more towards yours, b/c although I try to avoid whole milk, I do frequently go with 2% just b/c of the taste. The milk in my diet is the least of my problems, I have used it with much success. My problems lie in driving past Quiznos, taco bell, arby's, Long John Silvers, and a few chinese takeout places on my way home from work lol! And all of those are no more than two miles from my place...so thats where my concerns and focus lies, with much reason obviously. But enough ranting, IMO Milk is great, bulking, cutting, maintenance, whatever. Just gotta know your body.

Yes those stores = , but stopping by Wendy's for 4 or 5 Jr. Cheeseburgers never killed anyone anyway

I also had a knee injury, tore my ACL and MCL. Not as bad as yours lol...thats sounds pretty damn bad. But afterwards as I recovered and got back into lifting my squats, lunges, and leg press were never that high in my life. I'm coming off a couple injuries right now that have been plaguing me for a good while, broken wrist, recurring shoulder pain, that have all really pretty much halted my training. As I'm getting back into it now I am really looking forward to getting back on a regimented program and diet plan. I'm hoping my muscles are pretty damn smart, muscle memory is a great thing lol!
Either way, congrats on your progress and best of luck in your future fitness endeavors.

"Weightlifters who drink skim milk after a workout will build about twice as much muscle as those who rely on soy beverages, a new study suggests."

I hope no one misinterpreted what I said.
Skim milk is great, but like most things, moderation is key. I drink a glass or two a day, its the idea of drinking gallon + that is ridiculous.
And its great for shakes too.

Well I can only really speak for what has been working for me personally. For most people it very well may be rediculous, but..
I am only 21 guys, I probably wouldn't be able to get away with drinking that much if I was older. Plus, I think the fat that skim milk has a low G.I. and the fact that I lift 5x a week PLUS attend Rugby practice keeps my milk consumption from turning me into Chris Farley.
In the end everyone should just do what works best for them, and avoid what doesn't :-)

I'm sure it's just a typo bro...but Skim milk doesn't have any fat, and fat doesn't have a "g.i."...although fat can technically lower the GI of foods b/c fat slows the absorption into the bloodstream. It's the lactose that has the low GI. But being 21 working out 5x a week plus rugby does leave alot of room for milk lol
