Is drinking a lot of milk a good way to gain weight if I am working out a lot?

    Yes, it will certainly help.  Milk is very high in protein which is what makes up muscles.  An 8 oz. glass of 1% milk contains about 8 grams of protein and has around 100 calories.  However, you should be careful because while some quantities of calcium are good for you, you can get a calcium overdose which will give you problems like kidney stones.  I would suggest finding a whey protein supplement to add to the milk because first of all it is more delicious than whey protein in water, and second of all you get the added bonus of two types of protein, and a lot of it.

    Milk is high in protein and has sufficient carbohydrates as well, which makes it a good addition to a diet, particularly the diet of an active person. Depending on the amount of weight you wish to gain, the type of milk you want to drink will differ. If you are already lean, and you wish to put on weight, drinking a higher percentage of milk would be advisable. Milk naturally has whey protein in it, and drinking it is a more natural way to increase your protein intake than protein powders. Increasing protein intake also requires an increase in water for your kidneys and liver. High increases in protein such as those from powders can have heart disease risks.
