Is milk really necessary for an effective weight loss plan?
Do we have to drink our milk each day to get a sufficient
amount of calcium?
The answer to both of these questions is NO. We do not need
to drink milk as part of a healthy weight loss plan or to obtain
a healthy amount of calcium each day.
Consider the following facts:
1. Americans drink the most milk of any other country, yet they
still have the highest rate of osteoporosis.
2. Pasteurization kills off all the necessary digestive enzymes
in the milk (This is why so many people are now suffering from
3. Pasteurization also makes the major part of the calcium
contained in milk insoluble, in other words making 50% of milk’s
calcium unusable by the body
(This contributing to the high rate of osteoporosis).
4. Milk sugar (lactose) converts into sugar your body uses very
quickly, leading to blood sugar highs and lows and an up and down
energy rollercoaster ride for you.
How could this all be true? Isn’t milk supposed to do a body good?
Well, yes it does, but milk was really only intended to be consumed
in its natural state (unpasteurized). Sound scary?
Many states in the US and most organic farmers will ONLY drink milk
if it’s unpasteurized and they are extremely healthy.
The other fact we need to consider is that most cows are being given
an excess of growth hormone just to keep them producing massive amounts
of milk. This, in turn, makes them sick, at which time they are given
antibiotics. The growth hormone and antibiotics get
into their blood stream and then into the milk they produce.
Who drinks this chemical laden milk? We do! (Actually, I don’t and
maybe you’re starting to consider whether you do).
The next big concern is “How will I get enough Calcium?” As mentioned
above, most of the Calcium in milk is not absorbed by the body. More
calcium is absorbed from foods such as green leafy vegetables, sardines
(with bones preferably) and salmon.
This makes sense that more calcium come from greens since cows
preferably eat grass and they have a lot of calcium inside their
bodies (Please don’t eat grass. This really only works for cows).
If reducing your risk for Osteoporosis is your goal, do the #1
activity that prevents this debilitating disease: Exercise! Weight
bearing exercise has been shown to be the #1 way to prevent osteoporosis.
Putting small stresses on your bones via strength training helps to
re-build them stronger. No one, and I mean no one, should be neglecting
some exercise into their life.
Here are my tips on drinking the right kind of milk, calcium and
1. If you consume dairy on a regular basis, try to find raw
2. If the thought of raw milk scares you, purchase the next best thing:
certified organic milk products. They will be free of antibiotics and
3. Since most of milk’s calcium is not absorbed by the body, make sure
to get your calcium from these other sources: leafy
green vegetables, sardines (with bones) and salmon.
4. Commit to a strength training routine on a consistent basis. Not just
for your muscles and for the way you look in the mirror
(although this does help) but for your bone’s sake.
Milk and dairy do not have to be a staple in your diet in order to
absorb adequate amounts of calcium and achieve an ideal level of health.
You can establish and extremely healthy way of eating, reach your
weight loss goals, and feel great each day without drinking milk.
