    Milk?

    Shop Now
    It's really hot outside (100 degrees) and nothing is more refreshing than a cold glass of full fat milk (or 2 glasses). Milk has about 12g of sugar so that's about 24g of sugar for the 2 glasses. Good or bad if you generally stay below 50g of carbs?

    Maybe full fat yogurt made into a drink is more healthy (water, pinch of salt, yogurt)? I notice it had 8g sugar and 20g fat.

    Milk is fine on occasion or in moderation. I have a little dairy every day. Some of it is cheese, and sometimes milk.

    Once a week, sometimes not even more often than not.

    I found this awesome organic milk called Promised Land milk. A quart cost $3, but it was SO GOOD. I am a milk fiend but I've been just eating cheese lately.

    I only drink raw milk, but I'm not as picky about my cheeses.

    I guess I'm the only one on here on Drs orders to drink NO milk?

    I recently reintroduced milk back into my diet and the occasional jar of peanut butter. I have tweaked my diet to approximately 150 - 200g of carbs a day and my diet is already so damn clean I don't really care about milk and a jar of peanut butter every 3 weeks or so.

    Then again, everyone's different and has different goals

    Milk is good if you can find raw milk. It's an amazing, nutritious food. However, I find that pasteurization and homogenization screw with the taste and nutrients. Pasteurization destroys Vitamin C and iodine that milk naturally contains, as well as phosphatase, which you need to actually absorb much of the calcium that milk contains. Read here for more on why pasteurization of milk can damage the nutrients and hinder the body's ability to digest it. Pasteurizing Milk Destroys Essential Nutrients

    You're taking in 3-4 teaspoons of sugar with each glass...

    Would you consciously do that if asked? I wouldn't think so.

    8-10 teaspoons of sugar for those two glasses - no thanks...

    If the milk isn't causing you to gain weight, crave high sugar/carb snacks, feel sick or anything like that, I'd say go for it.

    For me, personally, I'd probably just stick with a single glass. Well, also for me personally, I prefer a nice cold glass of coconut milk instead!

    I am trying to lose weight, so milk is out right now. Once I'm at goal weight, it will probably re-enter the picture as a treat. Mmmm a frosty glass of milk with peanut butter... *drool***
