I've been hitting the guys for sometime now but have only just started to get interested in body building. I'm a novice when it comes to this stuff and the advice I receive seems to confuse me.
I was wanting to know is skim milk ok to have instead of water? I find protein shakes quite hard to drink with water so I have been drinking them with skim milk. I was advised by the place where I buy my supplements from not to have milk and to have water instead as milk increases your insulin levels. I spoke to my personal a trainer and she said that milk is fine to have.
I'm not a diabetic and I have good diet i.e not processed packed foods and eat mainly clean whole foods.
My question is 1. Why is water better than milk? 2. What happens when your insulin levels increase when your training?
