    Nice article, however it doesn't say wha type of milk was consumed for testing. Although, I believe it would have been non-fat milk.

    I didn't like how they compared milk with a carb drink for PW nutrition, they gotta compare it to other protein sources such as whey, egg, soy etc. in order to give more relevant information.

    i think milk is a pretty incredible food. when i did the 20 rep squat programs, my strength skyrocketed, and most of my protein came from milk

    fwiw, i have found that whey, in general, just makes me too gassy. i love micellar casein, though

    i like milk- its added calories- high protein
    taste is good and makes a whey shake taste about a million times better
    and oats a thousand million times better

    I found the best milk for myself when training is milk for life. It has a little more protein and fat free, even the chocolate is awesome tasting for being fat free, and a half gallon has 80 grams of protein. you should check it out.

    i like that low carb milk stuff at the grocery, but it is INSANELY expensive. $3.50 - $4.00 a half gallon vs $2.00 for a gallon of skim milk.

    Milk here in Ca. has skyrocketed in price. Luckily the store I go to offers a deal when you purchase two gallons of the same type and brand. I end up only paying .30 cents more for the seconds gallon. A single gallon here can cost in the area of $3.00 now.

    yeah, milk in KY runs about 2.80/gallon now. i love good ole 2%. never could get used to skim and vitamin d milk is a bit too "full" for my tastes. as far as a postworkout drink, it could work; although i wouldn't make it a habit as there are better options out there that aren't too expensive

    I do the non fat milk and whey pwo also, along with white potatoes, I love this. 1/2 Gallon a day is more than I could handle though, very commendable!

    Not just boston, Here in AZ milk is almost 4 bucks also. If you are lucky you can get it on sale pretty regularly though for about 1.70 or so. That is the only saving grace.

    Heh. I pound about a gallon and a half a day. It's rough! 3.55 for 2 gallons of fat free though...

    My food bill next month (just for shop at home) is going to be over $350 I need to ditch the pasta and the fruit juice I mix with my whey I think, that runs me like $6/day - add in 2lbs of cottage cheese a day, meat, etc and you're looking at like $12-$14 a day.

    it's worth it though..i know tons of people my age (college) who are eating fast food 2-3 times a day, and even with like dollar menu items, they are still racking up like 12-14$ a day easily, and their health is plummeting along with their wallet size. nice trade though, slim wallet, for big arms and healthy body
