love milk ..... kicked it down to skim.. but i love it and cant leave it
Ah, the milk challenge...heheh, I think there are only a handful of people who have sucessfully achieved this feat without puking -- even with skim milk. I'd try it for myself, but I know what will happen...and I'd feel bad about puking up all that protein .
Damn Wardog, a gallon a day? You must have like 3 refrigerators or otherwise go to the grocery store every other day hehehe. What ever happened to the good old fashioned milk man? I think that's a service bodybuilders would be down with
Food intollerance is quite common, wheat, milk etc are probably the best known. It doesn't have to be gluten (wheat) or lactose (milk) that you are intollerant to - it could be any part of the food. Many people are 'allergic' to milk without having a lactose intollerance - it's just the way things are.
Milk protein can certainly cause bloating - the early days of protein powders (Well the eighties!) saw a lot of protein shakes causing bloating in some people.
I don't drink much milk myself - mainly because it is mucus forming (it tends to give me a clogged throat for a while) but that is the only reason. I tend to have 1/2 to 2 pints of skimmed daily.
If you get on ok with milk, go for it - it's cheap and a reasonable quality protein. Otherwise, there's plenty of other options.
i go through about 3 gallons a week..

Effect of skim milk supplementation on blood cholesterol concentration, blood pressure, and triglycerides in a free-living human population.

In 82 subjects, aged 21-73, we studied the effect of skim milk supplementation on serum cholesterol concentration, blood pressure, and serum triglyceride level. The study involved a 1-week pretreatment baseline period followed by 8 weeks of milk supplementation. Sixty-four people were designated to a test group and 18 people were placed in a seasonal index group. The study was designed as a free-living trial, i.e., participants were requested to maintain their normal lifestyles, including dietary pattern, except for the supplementation of one quart of 2% solids-not-fat fortified skim milk to the daily diet in the test group. Supplemental milk treatment was associated with a 6.6% reduction (p = 0.0004) of serum cholesterol in the high cholesterol (greater than or equal to 190 mg/dl) test subgroup within the first 4 weeks. No change was noted in serum cholesterol in the low-cholesterol (less than 190 mg/dl) subgroup throughout the study. Body weight and seasonal variation of blood cholesterol did not significantly influence serum cholesterol levels. Reduction (p = 0.0140) in percentage of calories from fat in the high-cholesterol subgroup was not correlated with the decrease in serum cholesterol in this test subgroup. Reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressure occurred in the test subgroups; the low-cholesterol subgroup had a greater reduction (p = 0.0002) in diastolic blood pressure than the high-cholesterol group (p = 0.0049). Milk supplementation was associated with reduction (p = 0.0370) in serum triglycerides in the high-cholesterol subgroup.
