Honestly, how bad is the fat? I'm trying to squeak out extra calories for the next 3 months and I can down a gallon of milk like nothing. I'm trying to think semi-healthy so is all that saturated fat just pollution for the heart? Any info is appreciated, really trying to get my bulk diet etched out.

Hey Cyber_vky, what type are you drinking, Whole, 2%, 1% or skim? I'm just making sure the saturated fat in whole or 2% milk is fairly safe when downed in large quantities, 1-2 gals a day.

Saturated fat is saturated fat...I would look for my cals in other foods like nuts.

Thanks BigWill. I just bought a few tins of no-salt peanuts and cashews. I was actually looking at them for their fiber source more than calories. But now that you mention it, they may do the trick 😉 Probably better to stick with Fat Free milk and avoid the saturated fats. I just thought I read somewhere that saturated fats can be good when your bulking. Shrug.

The saturated fat in milk is the worst kind of fat there is. When milk is homogenized the fat is broken down into smaller pieces so it won't separate from the milk. If this was not done all cream would float to the top. Fat that's been processed like that is absorbed in to the blood stream easier than non homogenized milk fat. If you want to drink whole milk you should drink milk that has not been homogenized.

I usually use skim milk...and lots of it when bulking, but now and then I do go the whole milk route. Like Dotres said them old timers used it and they looked pretty damn good IMO. ...however you should be careful if you care about your health.

Just add 2-3 tablespoons of flax oil to your daily diet. That's over 300 cals right there.
