From my understanding you don't want to overinduldge on dairy protein if you want to slim down. Maybe someone has a little more info on this for you.:tread

Milk has a very high biological value, meaning the body can utilize it very efficiently, it is actually higher than chicken/beef... So yes, you can most definitely include it in your daily protein!

be careful with too much milk. Lactose is a very strong sugar. It has liver glycogen storing properties, and we know what happens once the liver is fully stocked.

huh? umm... the body starts storing glycogen in skeletal muscle, and muscles appear fuller and larger? Any type of carbohydrate has liver glycogen storing properties.

Yes the body does store glycogen in skeletal muscle first, that's if the carbohydrate is able to. Ive read that certain types of carbohydrates such as fructose, lactose cannot be stored in muscle cells and can only be stored as liver glycogen. So, the type of carbohydrate counts immensely, lactose is one we should fear.

No offense, but physiologically that sounds ridiculous that certain carbohydrates cannot be converted to glycogen. ... and what is the problem with liver glycogen... all it is, is stored carbohydrates for high intensity exercise.

Yup true, the only concern I have with liver glycogen, my opinion for myself of course, is that too many carbs being stored as liver glycogen which then are carried over into fat stores. But yes, your right, liver glycogen is immediate energy for workouts.

As ridiculous as it sounds, it's information that John Berardi wrote and talked about in one of his Carb Roundtable discussions. Believe me, Im not happy or was not about reding that.
