The Milk Problem

which milk

If you are one of the few who is following my blog, then you already know that I am a fan of drinking milk instead of protein supplements which you may find my post about here. However, I have heard a lot of people who are having bad memories when it comes to drinking milk as the effect go like if they will drink milk, they will have a meeting inside the toilet afterwards and their digestion goes into havoc.

Their solution to this problem is drinking soy milk. If you are a woman, that is okay as it may give you enough protein for your daily intake need. However, if you are a man who wants to develop muscle and be fit, lean or get ripped, soy milk should be taken with precautions due to estrogen contents that may cause hormonal imbalance. I have read a story of a man who developed gynecomastia or enlargement of a man’s breasts, usually due to hormonal imbalance, and the suspect is none other than Soy Milk.

This stirred my curiosity because a lot of vegetarians I know substituted their milk intake to soy milk. So with the help of google, I found these sites:

In my opinion, everything should be consumed with moderation. As I myself, I usually drink two glasses of milk before I sleep because I do not know if it is psychologically but bad dreams are lesser compared before. Make sure that you are not going beyond what is recommended intake, as everything that is “too much” is really bad for your health especially when you are into health and fitness, body building, or any exercises which aims to reach your fitness goal. Well, a lot just wanted to look good naked (I know a lot of them). If you are scared of drinking soy milk now, but you have lactose intolerance, the best solution is consuming Goat’s Milk.

Here are some benefits that you will get from drinking Goat’s Milk I got from this site http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/goat-milk-benefits/

Again, let me reiterate, yes I am in favor of drinking cow’s milk or goat’s milk rather than drinking soy milk but, everything needs to be consumed with moderation. Let me say one more time, everything that is too much, is bad (even loving too much is bad as well). Ask the doctors and they will still recommend balanced diet anyway.

Milk-Health
