Carol I spent some more time looking into some of the upside of proper dairy ingestion. For instance, in the Zone Blog, there is a story of Milk Helpful in Recover of workout:http://www.zonediet.com/Community/Z...overy.aspx
In a controlled study, a group of women who consumed 1L of Milk post work out, 500mL at a time, 15m and 1hr after had on average higher LBM increases & larger fat weight decreases than a control group on a constant carbohydrate drink flavored the same.
Also, did you try Greek Yogurt? It's the preferred yogurt for some in bodybuilding due to its naturally high concentration of Casien Protein, which is the slow digesting protein that forms 80% of Milk's content (and dairy as a result). In Greek Yogurt, the Whey has been strained away so all that is left is this form which is very nurishing before and after a strong work out to preserve existing LBM.http://findarticles.com/p/articles/...n31024209/
