Skim Milk and protein powder, who needs fat in their post workout drink? Not you, not anyone. Will one glass hurt your progress? Maybe not, but it will be another opportunity missed to ingest something that will help with your progress.

On a bulk here and looking to try GOMAD. I know it's not strictly paleo, this is mostly for convenience as I just don't have time to be preparing food all day with my schedule at the moment. Now obviously a little extra fat on a bulk is... (more)
"Carbs do not make you fat" ... Of course they do. If you keep them below a reasonable threshold you may not put on extra fat but carbs are the driver of the body's fat storage hormone called insulin. Science people, science.
I'm on a bulk at the moment, but I usually only get organic grassfed milk (it's not raw though, still pasteurized). I can drink up to a gallon a day of that without any problems. However, about a month ago I bought regular organic milk,... (more)
Or a gallon of milk a day? Right now I am trying to put on weight as I am very skinny and have hit a plateau on my lifts. Besides milk, I am pretty much 100% paleo. It's just way too difficult for me to take in enough calories on a paleo... (more)

I'm constantly getting mixed messages about milk and dairy. Some seem to think anything from whole milk to gouda is acceptable, others insist that dairy is evil and won't even touch butter... Now butter... isn't that taking it a little far? Who... (more)
I just Googled all over for info on the dangers of spoiled almond milk and for some odd reason the 'net seems completely devoid of information, or my seemingly ideal query phrases are deeply flawed. Can anyone here tell me about the dangers of... (more)
