Personal Trainer Denver CO – More on Milk — 8 Comments

  1. I agree, Mark. Drinking cow’s milk usually causes more problems than it solves. You can get calcium from lots of sources and get fiber also. It is also high in fat, unless you drink skim or 1%. (2% and higher is just too fat!). Most of us also eat a lot of cheese. The dairy council has led us to believe that we need lots of dairy.

    However, I believe that it is smarter to balance everything! I’m guilty of eating too much sugar and white flour, but I know that I shouldn’t! I wish I could stick with fruits, veggies, whole grains and low-fat meats. That would be a great balance!

  2. Ok, so I have debated about entering this discussion because my mom always told me if I didn’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. However, she also raised me on cows milk, matter of fact my job as a teenager was to milk that cow. That part and the consumption of the milk that came from this chore has never seemed to adversely affect me in anyway. I am not saying that it is for everyone, but, it seems to have provided humankind with substantial sustenance for quite some time.

    I have agreed with you about veggies, fruits, low glycemic, protein, not eating bread, laying off the pasta, eating egg whites without the yolks, even suffering through those despicable raw almonds, but, enough is enough. Leave my whole cows milk alone!

    Can’t we just have something that is left off the dissection table, especially something that has been a staple of human diet for so long. We seem to be surviving as a species just fine despite our milk consumption. If we are going to spend any time at all on what is bad for you, lets direct it towards soda, sugared bottle water that they pass off to our teens as vitamin water when its little more than koolaid in a bottle, or coffee, beer, wine or tequila. Although the latter 4 things have also been around at least as long as milk. Maybe not as healthy, those things were around and being consumed long before the word “stress” was created…
