Hi everyone! My first post here.
Last year I got into lifting, and my friend who was training me had me doing the whole Rippetoe thing. Since I started I've gained about 35 pounds or so. When I started he told me to do the GOMAD (gallon of milk a day) thing to make sure my body would have a surplus of calories.
Since then, I've dropped to going through a gallon (whole milk) every two days. I still want to make sure I have enough calories and protein (I also use whey), and I also just really like milk. It's like drinking ice cream.
My goal is honestly just to get as big as possible. I don't mind getting fat, and I have definitely gained more fat than I had before. Right now, I just want to be able to lift more and more.
Anyway, my question is, my friend told me that if you drink too much milk you can get "bone spurs". Is this something I should worry about?
PS: Any other advice is welcome too!

Can too much milk be bad for you?

since your title says "too much" milk the answer should be self-evident.
but lets ask what do you mean by "too much" milk. In order to determine what is too much we would need to know your hiegh, weight, goals, etc.
if you are a desk worker who lifts weights 1-2 a week then it is too much.
If you are Jay Cutler in the offseason then no.
For those in the middle it is impossible to tell without information.

A much better solution is to drop GOMAD and get your calorie surplus from a balanced diet.
