Is Milk Healthy: The Dairy Debate You Need To Read

"Is Milk Healthy"One of the questions I am asked time and again by my Biosignature fat loss clients is ‘is milk healthy?’, or almost equally as often ‘is it okay to have dairy’?

If you’ve ever embarked on an attempt to lose body fat, or to improve your health and rid yourself of possible food intolerance, then this question has no doubt popped into your mind as well.

is milk healthy?

When it comes to consuming milk, or indeed any dairy products as most people consume them, and simultaneously wanting to be lean and healthy, I think we have a bit of a problem on our hands.

Let’s talk about some of the key points in this seemingly never-ending debate about whether dairy is good for you.

commercial milk products

Pasteurisation

The main thing you need to know is that pastuerisation of milk kills the good bacteria as well as the bad. This is not a good thing. Furthermore, this heating process also kills much if not all of the nutrition in the milk. Vitamin D and calcium, often cited by the dairy industry as important reasons to drink milk (true, in theory), are the two most obvious examples. If you’ve ever seen vitamin D or calcium enriched milk in the store, you’re looking at a food stripped of its natural nutrition and synthetically enhanced.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not such a fan of things that need to have synthetic nutrition added back in.

Homogenisation

Homogenized cow’s milk is milk robbed of it’s natural and good fats and may upset the molecular structure of the milk protein. That’s right – animal fat in a pure organic state is healthy, and can even help with weight loss.

low fat milk products

Low-fat, skim milk, or reduced fat milk is NOT a natural food. As my colleague Maximus Mark points out in this short YouTube clip, how on earth can you absorb fat soluble nutrients such as Vitamin D if you strip milk of it’s natural fats?!

I’d add to that the fact that your digestive system is designed to recognise foods in a whole state, not foods that have been processed and stripped down.

is cows milk healthy for adults in particular?

The question of whether humans (aside from babies) should drink milk has been raised by some health experts, and also by the vegan community.

Personally I’m with Mark on this one, I just don’t buy it. I believe we are designed to enjoy foods provided by nature in their natural state. This might mean not having milk as an everyday part of your diet, but I don’t think it means never having it. Of course sheep and goat milk are both very low allergenic beverages, and many people who struggle with lactose intolerance find they can happily benefit from these alternative milk choices.

lactose intolerance: does it really exist anyway?

The short answer is yes, of course. People definitely react to lactose. The question is why is this so, especially considering that lactose intolerance has notably risen in the past 20 years or so.

The quality (or lack thereof) of most commercial milk is probably a key reason for this, but another point to consider again here is the issue of consuming foods in their natural state.

In this case, that would mean raw.

If you’ve never tried raw dairy before, well firstly you are missing out (especially when it comes to the cream, WOW!), and secondly, you’ve never actually tried REAL dairy. Raw dairy can be hard to find, but worth the effort. Try your farmers market or organic store, and ask for ‘bath milk’ or ‘body cream’.

what you really want to know: is milk healthy for your body fat?!

As I’ve implied above, my opinion is that milk and other dairy products in their natural raw (organic) state are extremely healthy for you and in fact cream and butter can even be a great addition to your weight loss diet!

When it comes to getting lean we definitely do need to make a clear distinction between milk and other common dairy products such as cream and butter. (No ice-cream with sugar added is definitely never going to be on the weight loss menu :))

The reason cream and butter can help you with weight loss is that they are pure fat. As such – when consumed raw and organic – they are actually fat burning fats and can also increase absorption of nutrients from your greens. I use butter and cream pretty much daily in my cooking – you’ll notice if you start to do the same that they help fill you up and reduce cravings.

are dairy products good for me?

As far as milk goes, if you want to get lean then even raw milk can be an issue. Milk tends to elevate your blood sugar levels quite rapidly. For this reason (as well as the previously mentioned benefits), I like to put full-fat raw organic cream in my coffee instead of milk, or if I’m out I use just a dash of milk. Add some cinnamon and you have a delicious fat-burning caffeine hit!

If you were going to have a decent serving of milk, I’d advise doing so after weight lifting when you are at your most insulin resistant. Bodybuilders have traditionally done this to help increase strength and muscle growth.

take home milky goodness points!

  • If you love milk and don’t want to eliminate it, go for raw milk and consume it ideally after training.
  • If getting lean is your focus, use raw cream and/or butter preferentially over milk
  • If you can’t access raw, organic and unhomogenised full-fat dairy products are best
  • If you find you react to milk and other dairy products then you may well be fine with raw. You could be reacting to the quality rather than the actual lactose.
  • Use butter on your veggies and even to cook your meat – the butyric acid helps you burn fat and you will absorb more nutrients from your food.

Oh – and if you want to enjoy my all-time favourite sweet treat, have a small bowl of raw cream with some berries. A-ma-zing!

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

✨✨¬†Success Frequencies.

Let’s talk about them. Breathe them in. ALLOW them in. And then dial them TF in.

Are you ready?

There are certain ways of being, of operating, of thinking, and perhaps most in particular of expecting which are currently dictating your outcomes in every area of life.

You are, quite literally, coded. Programmed. Running on a frequency of … X.

With X being, well – whatever you see around you most days. Whatever you experience. Feel. Know to be true. Receive and hold onto. Receive and do not hold on to. Or do not receive at all.

There are certain things in your life which right now you can click your fingers and command to replicate, on repeat, and they do.

And there are other things which SHOULD be in your life, which you yearn to have in your life, which sometimes you get a glimpse or a taste of or even an entire mouthful, and then they’re gone, into the night, maybe never to return again, shrouded in mystery and frustration but yet at the same time that deeper part of you knows –

it’s not supposed to be like this.

It shouldn’t be.

I don’t accept it!

And I WILL move past.

You look into the future you see inside of you and you know that it is ALL real, ALL available, ALL true, ALL there for the taking. A virtual sushi train of wondrous life options, every one of ’em just a choice you can pluck off as it rolls on by! Don’t see what you want, not exactly? All you gotta do is ASK, and it’ll be freshly made for you!

Your belief around the impossible is OFF THE CHARTS.

And it always has been.

Your PROOF, of CREATING and ALLOWING the impossible is also pretty darn off the charts, if you do say so yourself. Which you don’t have to, because others do it for you!

It’s ALWAYS been this way for you, you’ve ALWAYS been able to dance between realities and choose the one you wanna keep.

But yet –

it feels, so much of the time, as though you’re teetering.

Teetering on the edge of will I / won’t I let myself FULLY go and receive, create, allow, BE –

or will I fall back into normal, into rules, into worries, into shoulds, into the dreaded dreaded fear that it’ll somehow all just stop working and I’ll find out there was never anything special about me at all, never anything wondrous about what I could do, and that I just somehow … fluked things for a bit.

Sometimes you’re CERTAIN which way you’re going to topple.

And other times you’re terrified you have no idea at all, and if you did you wouldn’t want to know.

But what you do know is this:

When things are working.

When things are flowing to and through and from you in the precise ways they should be.

When things are OH so yes.

When it’s all just coming together, the different areas of your business your money your life and YOU just rolling PERFECTLY, like a beautiful and impossible to replicate orchestra, pure MAGIC –

it’s not because of what you did.

It is not because of how you planned, followed the plan, did it right.

It’s not a list you ticked off that made it that you got to then GET.

It’s not because you followed RULES for success.

Or really anything at all.

It’s because you were playing life on a certain frequency. You were tapped in, dialled in, LEANING all the way in to something you can’t even fully describe but you KNOW when you’re in it.

You were, not to be too corny or cliche about it but we’ll say it anyway ’cause it’s true – one with life itself. Dancing the most beautiful dance of BEING FULLY YOU with the wind beneath your wings nothing other than God and truth and the very fabric of the universe, what else could it be?!

Put simply:

you had those Success Frequencies switched on to high AF, and you were using ’em.

Want to know how to do that more, in fact any time you choose, in fact with complete calm understanding of what it is you ARE doing and how to tap in and BE in that energy, that place, that receiving, at will?

It’s always been available.

It’s ALWAYS been right there for the taking.

EVERYTHING you’ve suspected this whole time is true.

And now?
We’re gonna get you understanding it (every last bit).

Living it (as naturally as breathing).

And UTILISING it to let life unwind to the places you’ve been waiting to be (the way it’s meant for you).
