I have been out of protein powder for about a week now, and have been supplementing milk for it. I have to drink a ton of milk in order to get what I would out of 8 ouces of water and protein powder. My question is milk a good protein source? I have always drank it, but never really read to much on it. It sure does suck to have to drink 25-30 ounces of milk just to get my protein.
It's more carbs than protein.
30 fl oz is a LOT of milk. ~300 cals from milk alone.... The carbs are mostly sugar, which PWO isn't that bad.
Good supply of Aminos.
The protein is more caseinate than whey. You might be better off finding a high protein NoSugarAdded yogurt (usually has whey added to boost the numbers).
Obviously, you don't get bloated from dairy....because 4 cups of milk PWO is quite a bit.
