Milk vs. Soy Milk

17 posts in this topic

I have noticed that my skin has been very oily the past few days. I have started taking protein shakes ... twice a day ... along with 8oz of milk each shake. Is the milk causing my skin to become oily? Would soy milk be any different? I am also taking multivitamins with only 0.15mg of iodine. I'm not sure what is making my skin so oily. Any ideas?

Can't really help you out with why your skin has suddenly become oily (although some docs think there is a correlation between acne and milk simply because of the large amounts of hormones that are given to the cows, which then end up in milk), but if you do try soy milk, definitely get Silk Vanilla Soy Milk. It's absolutely delicious (I drink it every day). smile.gif

Wow, that's a lot of milk. I wouldn't be surprised at all if that's what's causing your oiliness. Milk and dairy does indeed have that effect on many people.

I too suspected milk was giving me problems. I have switched to soy milk for my morning cereal and like it. By the way, have you ever checked out the website www.milksucks.com. Amusing. "GOT ZITS?".

SoY aLl ThE wAy! I stopped drinking milk months ago, i just recently got soy milk. Tastes sooo good. I use it in my cereal in the morning. Organic whole grain, i add some sliced up pear and raisans and yum! I wonder if they make soy cheese? Im sure they do since they make soy milk. If so i gotta go get some of that so i can have chicken parm or eggplant parm. Also another alternative to soy milk is rice milk( made from brown rice) or almond milk.

Soy isnt all that bad, Im allergic to milk so that means no cheese, certain chocolate, icecream, cream cheese, sour cream ect, its very discouraging because everything that I want to eat is made up of dairy products. Since Ive been drinking the soy milk ( 6 years and counting), the taste keeps improving. Far as your skin being oily, Ill read up on that. biggrin.gif

you know they make soy-protein, so It can't be that less than milk!

1 - the ugly colored and graved with bird shit all over it, but Porsche/Lamborgini shaped car what could take you like a jet plane?

2 - or the amazing static red colored shiny, with the green glow under the car but is shaped like a lame cube where old folks drive in?

Goat cheese is my fav.

Has it been shown that goat cheese is better for you than cow cheese? That's good cause I already love it.

Goat's milk is shown to be better than cow's milk already. Goat's milk has the closest properties to that of mother's milk.

Now that I don't eat beef, or drink cow milk...what are cows good for now? user posted image
