To many of us, the struggle to gain weight can be every bit as frustrating as shedding it. Many people are so-called ectomorphs or hardgainers, those who don’t seem to gain weight no matter how much they eat.
Drinking milk is a healthy, foolproof way of meeting your surplus of calories. You’ve been told many times that protein and water are two of the most nourishing substances to the body—why not have both? Milk can substitute your water intake—milk being predominantly water—and give you your protein needs at the same time. Plus, there’s no need to cook at all; you can get your protein needs for the fraction of the time it takes to whip up beef steak.
However, let’s be honest: You just can’t chug a gallon a day in one sitting. Instead of trying to down one and risk bloating, you can simply incorporate milk into your meals. Drink milk at breakfast, right after your workout, and just prior to bedtime.
