Default Bulking Question that I Hear Often

I receive the same type of bulking question on a routine basis. It generally goes something like this...

"You recommend drinking whole milk. Shouldn't I drink skim so that I gain less fat on a bulk?"

No.

Whole milk provides 56 more calories per cup. You are eating X amount of calories per day on your bulk. Not only is whole milk more cost efficient, but it also forces you to "eat less" because it has greater caloric density. This extra room in your stomach might also make it easier to stomach the other 4000 (or whatever calories you need that day.

You have to drink 3 cups of milk to obtain the same calories as 2 cups on whole milk.

I also believe a primary objection to whole milk, though often unexpressed, is the fear of its fat content. Fat does not make fat. Excess calories makes fat.
