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.
