    Default Excessive milk consumption?

    I am now drinkin between 1 to 2 litres of milk a day, usually full fat or semi skimmed to get my calories count up. I have it with my protien shakes about 3 times a day.

    Is it in any way bad for you to drink so much milk? Ive heard of calciul deposits etc are these myths or true?

    Cheers

    Hey Possum,

    I'm not sure, but I think if you are genetically predesposed to get calcium deposits you'll get them from drinking excess milk. But if not you should be fine.

    I'm not a big milk drinker, especially full fat, as the fat in full fat milk may delay absorption of nutrients after a workout. So it may not be optimal to use post workout.

    As far as "being bad for you" I can think of worse things you could be drinking!

    Full Fat milk does have a lot of calories per serving but if you are adding them in and aren't seeing an increase in body fat, I'm guessing you are A-OK.

    I gather you aren't Lactose intolerant! LOL

    I'll go with that Genetic thing. I have 2 calcuim deposits, as well as my Uncle, Grandfather, Cousin, Other Cousin, etc.... damn genetics... I think the only thing you would have to be worried about is Fats and Calories...

    Cheers for the reply.

    I dont think anyone in my family has had a problem with calcium deposits etc before. And my post workout shake i have with water, but the one before bed i have with milk.

    Well ive been having the same amount of weight gainers with water and my food = about 3500 calories a day and i still dont gain weight

    So i thought i should crank it up a notch. Fast metabolisms suck

    Hi mate, don't have too much milk, too much milk could be a bit bad for you, i wouldn't chance having too much milk. Milk is good, just don't go all out on milk.

    Also possum, ever heard of a kidney stone?, people get kidney stones from excess calcium. watch your dairy, most important of all is to drink lots of water!

    Im sure you will be fine drinking 1-2 litres of milk a day.

    Why are you relying of milk to increase your calorie intake?

    just coppied this from another board:-

    Nonfat Milk Linked to Prostate Cancer


    Drinking low-fat or nonfat milk may increase a manís risk of prostate cancer, while calcium and vitamin D intake appear to have little or no impact, according to two new studies.

    The first, which included over 82,000 men between the ages of 45 and 72, found that neither calcium nor vitamin D from any source increased the risk of prostate cancer during the eight-year follow-up period.

    However, further analysis by University of Hawaii researchers of food groups and consumption of dairy products found that drinking low-fat or nonfat milk increased the risk of localized tumors or non-aggressive tumors, while whole milk decreased this risk.

    A second study by researchers from the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health investigated the relationship of calcium, vitamin D and prostate cancer in nearly 300,000 men.

    After the average six-year follow-up period, skim milk was linked to advanced prostate cancer, while calcium from non-dairy food was linked to a reduced risk of non-advanced prostate cancer.

    If you are a B - type you are doing the right thing, they thrive on dairy products. For A and O - types: their system is ill designed for proper metabolism of dairy.(A can have some lean or cultured products)

    Blood typing has nothing to do with milk ingestion....Nor does blood typing have a place in human nutrition....

    Actually its interesting you say that, because a mate of mine reckons Blood Types thinks the opposite. He reckons certain foods may be more beneficial if you are a certain blood type. Meh i dunno , but I drink about 1 liter a day too
