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 unavoidable, but I'd like to minimize it. I think it's still important to eat smart, and stick to clean foods whenever possible.
As we paleos know, fat and cholesterol does not make you fat. Sugar and carbs do.
Thus, the high lactose content of milk is going to be my biggest enemy.
What I'm thinking, however, is to drink the majority of it pre and post workout. This way, my body will use the sugar as energy during my workout, and then a good portion of it postworkout to replenish my glycogen stores.

"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.
