Got Milk?

I've never really liked milk all that much. I don't hate the stuff, just not wild about milk. One of the things I'm trying to do, however, is find some variety to my help me stay with it. Milk is a good food source loaded with good protein, vitamins, and minerals. Trouble is, milk has a lot of fat and I cannot stand no-fat, skim, or 1% milk.

I do like chocolate milk.

So I came across this soy milk at the grocery the other day. All the goodies of milk with none of the animal fat and chocolate to boot. "Worth a try", I thought to myself.

It's good! A great treat for myself that I can have every day without drifting from my plan.

You may want to watch out for soy products. They have recently discovered that consuming too much soy can significantly lower your testosterone levels. If you're looking to get in shape testosterone will get you much farther then the fat from normal milk will hurt you. I'm just trying to help. good luck with reaching your goals.

Yeah, I've read some of that research and I think (like a lot of food research) it may be a tad overblown...a case of too much of anything being bad for the body somehow. In any case; at my age, the benefits far outweigh any potential harm.

Still...your comment is another good reason to follow the philosophy of moderation in all things dietary.
