    If you're bulking use 2%, or better yet, whole milk.

    2% is good but don't mix it with your PWO shake, use water instead.

    The only thing you need to be worried about with Milk, whether it be skim/2%/Full, is the amount of sugar milk contains. On average your looking at 16grams per 250ml which is on par with gatorade.

    If your bulking go the full cream milk cause there is bugger all difference, if your cutting mix it with ice cold water.

    Actually that's a good point. I didn't think about that when I read his post. I drink skim milk with late evening shakes, but never after a w/o. You want a high GI sugar to mix with post w/o shakes. Grape juice is considered one of the best, but I use OJ since it tastes good with about any flavor whey I buy. This helps with protein uptake, causes an insulin spike, which you want PWO, and helps ease sore muscles after a grueling w/o.

    yeah i never drink milk pre or post workout, it tends to make me sick, but for morning/evening shakes i use milk. PWO, i only drink creatine with gatorade powder (i work out at school and i cant very well bring a blender lol) but anyways you think i should use whole milk instead of skim or 2%?

    Except that apparently, from what I've read around here, saturated fat doesn't affect Insulin Index. Of fats, only unsaturated fat does. So whole milk and skim milk will both spike your insulin equally fast.

    I vote for skim milk with healthy fat added.

    There are a couple of ways to do this....

    1) Buy Sun Milk

    2) Buy Skim Milk and add fat

    Remember, skim (%1) milk has more protein per 250ml than it's 2% cousin.

    My point was that fruit juices will spike your insulin faster than milk. The 2% vs. skim was another issue. Now chocolate milk........is considered to be an excellent choice for PWO.

    Bulking = More Calories = Whole/2%

    Cutting = Less Calories = Water

    Clean Bulking = More Clean Calories/mL = Skim

    Pick your poison.

    Milk isn't that bad. Even when cutting, 2% can be used for protein shakes. Just make sure it fits into your daily caloric needs. If you hit a plateau, then think about dropping the milk. Obviously, you are bulking so use which ever milk you want (2% or whole).

    Skim milk is NOT 1%!!!

    Skim Milk is for all intents and purposes...FAT FREE.

    1% milk has 1 or 2 grams of fat per serving.
    2% milk has 5 grams of fat per serving.
    Whole Milk has 8 grams of fat per serving.

    There is even 1/2% milk in my city...along with skim of course. I only drink 1% and 2% milk. I stay away from whole milk, and anything under 1%.

    Milk can vary with sugar content.

    Normally you see around 6g or so per 100ml, I found an organic milk at the local Coles that is 4.4g/100ml.

    This is the best skim milk....especially since its lactose free as well. Yum!
    Mootopia

    http://www.heb.com/aboutHEB/media-PR-MooTopia.jsp

    60 percent less sugar, 35 percent more calcium, 75 percent more protein, 4 grams of carbs, is enhanced with vitamins A and D and lactose free.

    Skim or 2% will make no difference at all bulking, cutting, "clean" bulking whatever. Your body isnt that sensitive to the macros of food. I go for milk post workout always have, the longer release and extra protein can only be good in my books.
    It aint just how much you lift but how you lift it

    why do so many prefer skim milk to 2%? skim milk has more sugar and 2% has more fat right? isn't sugar wastefull and the fat good for you?

    Wouldn't the casein in milk slow down the digestion of the sugar?

    I can't even drink whole milk after drinking 2% for so long.

    Isnt the sugar in milk Lactose? Which breaks down very slowly, acting like a complex carb to your insulin levels?

    Then I don't see the problem of it. Why does everyone still think in terms of "complex carb" and "simple carb"? White bread spikes blood sugar way more than even honey does, don't even mention lactose.

    2% seems to work fine for me, although I may go to 1%. Skim just doesn't have enough flavor.

    I stick with skim when either bulking or cutting since it fits in with what I do.

    Why not just get a shaker bottle? and carry your protein tub in your backpack.

    I just made the switch to skim milk last week, after drinking 2% my whole life. I made the switch mainly for the reudction in calories. I actually really like it, wish i would have made the switch years ago.

    Agreed.. shaker bottles are very convenient. I scoop in my PWO mix at home, throw the bottle into my bag, and go off to hit the weights.
