ive always drank skim milk since i was young. my browsing on this website has taught me that ones intake of fat will not cause you to gain/lose weight, but it is rather the amount of calories one consumes.

so on that note, besides the difference in calories, what is the difference between skim, 1%, 2%, and whole milk?

(and please dont put taste as an answer...)

thanks!

Just the fat content which contributes to calories in the end.

the more fat that is in the milk the better it tastes. its saturated though, so not a good source.

I believe whole Milk is on average 3 - 4% fat.

I drink Skim Milk and get my fat from Nuts and Avocados......Flax seeds, etc. If I am going to intake fat it's kind of like Gas...I would rather put in the premium fats instead of the kind I get from 2% or Whole Milk.

According to Bruce Fife, MCTs (such as the saturated fats found in milk) are the healthiest of all. I don't necessarily follow his advice (or buy into it), but it's out there.

I agree I'd rather get my fat sources from nuts, avocadoes or fatty fish or olive oil over milk. I personally also prefer the taste of skim milk over the rest.

skim milk actually has more protein compared to 2%...when you remove the fat you are left with a higher amount of protein and carbs per unit volume

Whole milk is one of the best things you can consume to gain quality mass. It is full of low gi carbohydrates, excellent milk protein, and healthy fats that are neccessary for optimal hormone production.

I believe fats should come from a variety of sources, just like protein and carbs.

I drink around a liter of 1% milk a day, 1% is a nice compromise I believe, it allows me to make up my fat quota each day along with some nuts, peanut butter, eggs and salmon.

I cannot stand skim milk and find whole milk just way, way too filling, and the fat does really add up if you are drinking whole.

It is quite a bit of fat! But it's perfect if you need to gain weight. Not the healthiest to drink 1 gallon of whole milk per day, but it will help your gains.

low GI but extremely insulogenic

and Boyscout--saturated fat may be good for adding muscle, but eating it in excess is not necessarily a good long term strategy for overall health

What is insulogenic?

more fat obviously... skim has less carbs, sugar, cholesterol.

when cutting I'll use skim milk, when bulking I use 2% for the extra cals

Pasteurized milk is crap. It is way overrated. Buy Raw Milk
