Hereof, does drinking milk make you gain weight?
Milk can cause you to gain weight when it contributes to a calorie intake which is greater than the amount of calories you burn. “It used to be thought that fat would make you fat. If you want to carry on drinking milk, a glass a day shouldn't cause any problems unless you are lactose intolerant.”
Subsequently, question is, what type of milk is best for weight gain?
"If you need to gain weight and need more calories, protein, calcium and potassium (for athletes and people who may be underweight), go with full-fat/regular whole cow's milk." On the other hand, if you're trying to lose weight and need to cut calories, you can go opt for an unsweetened plant-based option, like almond
Many people avoid drinking whole milk because they assume the extra fat and calories will cause them to gain weight. Interestingly, the opposite is probably true. Many studies have shown that consuming high-fat dairy products, such as whole milk, may actually help prevent weight gain.
