This Sparked Me!

Milk has been the secret ingredient in my weight loss recipe for years. Whenever I add on a few pounds or feel sluggish, I replace a meal with cereal and a big glass of milk. It helps me look and feel slim in a short amount of time.

    I mix 16oz of skim milk with chocolate-flavored whey protein isolate for breakfast after my 5:30am workouts. I love chocolate milk and I get 40 grams of protein in one breakfast drink. I am starting to lose weight since I started this and I do not get as hungry during the day.

    I actually learned about adding Milk to a weight loss plan when Jillian advised Helen Phillips to do that a few Seasons ago on the Biggest Loser. Helen went on to win~~At the age of 48!

    If you have a problem with milk and want more dairy. Try eating AGED CHEDDAR CHEESE I eat one ounce before bed and it lowers my blood sugar. The aging process makes it lactose free. I was Told this by Cabot and I do use their product along with Aged store brand also.Pat in Maine.

    milk is a good source of fat and protein needed by the body to function at its best. There are milk variants that best suits a weight watcher's diet.

    Gotta love it! For those who want to drink milk, but can't handle the lactose, I've found Lactaid or Dairy Ease to be quite tasty. For a real stick-to your-ribs meal, chow down on a cup of bran flakes with a sprinkling of Splenda and about 2/3 cup of milk.

    INSTEAD of DAIRY milk...I drink the SILK *Almond* milk! I especially LOVE the Dark Chocolate!! Dark Chocolate eases the sweet tooth cravings, and it doesn't shoot my blood sugars sky high like DAIRY MILK does!
BETTYJ1951 12/8/2012 12:24:00 PM

    Milk (in ANY form) ALSO shoots my blood sugars SKY HIGH! I LOVE milk...but, I have tried to stay as FAR AWAY from it as I possibly can because of it's impact on my glucose control!

    While researching different diet plans, I found that if the plan prohibited milk -- it wasn't for me!! When I'm thirsty, milk is the ONLY thing I'm interested in. It's almost an addiction since I feel a little panicky if I'm running low; and it it's not beyond me to drag myself out of a cozy warm house and into a store on a frigid winter's night at 11:00 p.m. to restock!! Glad to see SP sees its benefits and includes it as a dietary need. :)
MISS-OVEREATER 6/10/2012 9:19:00 AM

    I noticed the last time I had a glass of milk I felt really full afterwards. Thanks for this pst. Im gonna try and get more milk in my system.
MAEMAE66 4/14/2012 10:59:00 AM

    Thank you for the information on drinking milk with meals. I've wondered why milk was on my menu so much. Now I know how importantant milk is to my diet and I will be using the tips for making milk more tasteful.
TRIANGULUS 2/25/2012 12:30:00 PM

    This, too, is one of my most powerful secret weapons. Only I always use yogurt - it has the added benefit of helping my digestion. Occasionally I will add a teaspoon of fiber and a bit of cocoa - a cup will last 2-3 hours!
FIREWORKS8 1/25/2012 3:24:00 PM

    Thanks for all the tips on the milk. I am trying to incorporate more milk into my diet an this helps alot.

    I can't set up any diet without milk! Milk is always present in my meal plans. I can't replace it, and I love the taste.
SANDFLEA28 7/21/2011 4:13:00 PM

    Gee, I've been drinking milk all my life, when I get thirsty working out in the sun, a cold quart of white or choc milk not only satisfies that thirst, but adds the nutrition to keep going till the next meal, and I DON'T DO COLORED WATER, ONLY WHOLE MILK.
JUSTDOIT46 7/7/2011 11:27:00 PM

    Milk has been part of my diet all my life. I attribute my great bone density at almost age 65 to drinking milk.
DEBRADOKHT 6/5/2011 1:36:00 AM

    I love dairy ,too. My favorite is a pint of melted ice cream poured over reduced sugar Frosted Flakes. This is sooooo much more healthy than the regular Frosted Flakes. I feel great since I have cut back on sugar consumption.This combination is great for a late night snack. It helps me fall right to sleep.
TRUDYFOODY 5/5/2011 7:20:00 AM

    Milk is indeed good for the body. It is packed with proteins and the right amount of fat needed by the body. A number of variants such as low-fat, skim are available in the market :)
ZENSTEPH 4/29/2011 2:29:00 AM

    emoticon Yup, I find this helpful too

    What kind of cereal do you eat? Milk has always been something has sucked my energy out like crazy. Too much milk on a regular basis and I barely have the energy to walk across the room. And cereal, being a processed food doesn't generally help in that area, but if I could get a healthy cereal, I'd love to try this sometime.
KANSASROSE67 4/9/2010 2:45:00 PM

    I need to remember this tip when my family is eating something too high-calorie for me. I could just have cereal and easy is that?!
