When many mammals are born, they survive almost solely on milk. It's totally logical then, that milk can benefit us in every way. It has protein (cassein and whey), carbohydrates, vitamins, good fats, and a lot of calories.
So I've been reading a ton of stuff, and I'm going to conduct a little experiment.
In addition to eating 4-6 balanced meals per day and weightlifting, I'm going to consume as much milk as I possibly can within reason. Tomorrow I will weigh myself before eating or drinking anything, and record the results every week.
I've read about many people complaining of high sugar content in milk. But the article claims that it breaks down very slowly:
"You may already know this, but when you look at the milk label, you see that there's a lot of sugar in milk. But lactose is a disaccharide, and has to be broken down first, which takes time. This is why the GI (glycemic index) of milk is very low." (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/paul1.htm)
Also this article here:
Is somewhat...odd. Never heard anything like that in my life. I think the guy in the article is making a huge deal over something with almost no scientific evidence.
Any thoughts on this? Predictions?
Week 1: 147.6 pounds without any water or food consumed, and wearing shorts and a T-shirt.

From what I have read, milk is good, but seems to be overrated.
Calcium magnesium supplements, your vitamins, but dude, from what i'v read milk is completely over rated.
Edit: my reasoning was from a really good thread we once had on bullshido, I searched and can't find it tho.

Milk is actually what white people are made of.

Except other mammals consume milk from their mothers and only for a short time.
We consume milk from another species after we can already eat solid food.
Listen to Arnold: drink beer. Milk is for babies.

In case you didn't know, we consume milk from our mothers also.

Too much milk might screw up your bowels.
Then again that's probably true for too much of anything. I remember reading in some swedish tabloid how carrots cause cancer..
.. if you make a rat eat twice its bodyweight of them every day.

Hmmm.... so since i drink no-fat lactose reduced milk i negate 2 benefits of my milk drinking?

There's no reason to drink milk after you're weaned, especially cow's milk.
