But, you can try some things....try skim instead of 2%/whole. Try powdered instead of store bought....both of those, I've noticed, helps reduce the gas and other unpleasantness. Or as others have said, try dumping milk completely since you're not a baby cow. Milk lovers (esp chocolate milk lovers like myself) may not be able to drop it completely, but you can give it a shot.
But clearly, based on what I've read, EVERYONE becomes more and more lactose intolerant as their bodies age.
That sucks, because here is an article from a few months back about how great chocolate milk is as an after-workout drink.
Before your stomach recoils, take a look at chocolate milk's ingredients list. For a high-endurance athlete, Stager's team sees it as a catch-all workout recovery drink. Compared to plain milk, water, or most sports drinks, it has double the carbohydrate and protein content, perfect for replenishing tired muscles. Its high water content replaces fluids lost as sweat, preventing dehydration. Plus it packs a nutritional bonus of calcium, and includes just a little sodium and sugar -- additives that help recovering athletes retain water and regain energy.

Personally, I eat a bunch of eggs with breakfast, and meat sources later in the day. I actually concern myself more with increasing my carbs after a workout, rather than upping the protein amount (but there is still a proper amount of protein present). Probably 60% of my daily carbohydrates are in my post-workout meal. That's because the carbohydrates accelerate the rate at which protein and other nutrients are absorbed into the cells. Also, carbohydrates satisfy the immediate calorie and energy needs of the depleted muscles, allowing the protein to used for cell repair, rather than converted and burned for energy.

There's also some speculation now that it helps with strength gains/hypertrophy:

There's nothing wrong with milk. But there's nothing magical about it either. It's a select mixture of chemicals, like every other dietary item. No one item will give you everything you need. The trick is selecting the various foodstuffs that give you the most ideal mixture of chemicals that your body needs to perform its functions.

GOMAD is not for the guys carrying some weight already with an average build who want to put on some muscle."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."

Eggs. Milk doesn't compare with eggs in either protein or in cost.
