More on Milk
In light of recent threads/posts, I thought I'd share this discussion with Rippetoe and others...

I love Rip.

Interesting post, I know my days of being super interested in bodybuilding are long past but most of those guys (natural or not) don't have a huge amount of milk in their diets and their main goal is hypertrophy.

I think that Rip made his point quite nicely. :)

from Peak Performance, a newsletter in the UK:

"Just this year [2007], Canadian scientists evaluated the long-term consequences of milk or soy protein, or carbohydrate (as maltodextrin) on muscle mass gains after resistance training. Subjects trained five days a week for 12 weeks and were given isocaloric beverages consisting of either fat-free milk, fat-free soy protein, or maltodextrin within an hour after their training sessions.
"In the study, they found no differences in strength development between the groups. However, the researchers did determine that type II muscle fibre increased in all groups; moreover, it increased the most in the milk group. Muscle mass gains were also significantly greater in the milk group when compared with both the soy and control groups. They concluded that the consistent consumption of milk after resistance training can promote greater hypertrophy when combined with resistance training."

I'm so split on milk. At one level, it's obviously awesome - see Tom's post - but at another, the mucous is really an issue with large consumption.
Maybe the answer is to use milk more in warmer times so the mucous issue isn't as bad, because increasing mucous during the dry winter months when snot production seems to already be nice and high etc kind of sucks.

Well I think that this is definitely the final word on milk. BTW foul language included so be careful at work or around the kiddies. None the less you have to watch.
