Exercise and Low Fat milk

For adults, low fat milk is an effective recovery drink refueling exhausted muscles after exercise because:

  • Milk helps build bone mass and maintains bone density.
  • The protein in milk contains the essential amino acids for building and maintaining the lean body mass.
  • Milk provides essential electrolytes like potassium crucial to regulate the balance of fluids in the body, muscle activity and contractions.
  • The B-vitamins such as B-12, niacin and riboflavin present in milk are necessary to convert food to energy for exercising muscles.
  • Milk, containing 90% water, keeps the athlete hydrated.

This low-fat milk craze has been going on for decades [as has margarine] but have we become thinner? Quite the opposite. Simple carbohydrates (white bread, white rice) and sugars are your enemies, not fat.

Milk SHOULD be described, Not according to the % milk fat content, which suggests a low fat content, but rather like other foods, by the % of calories supplied by fat. It seems to me that the current system is a deliberate deception by the dairy industry, to misrepresent and so promote their product, at the expense of the health of 100s of millions of people.
