Hi sweetnirali,

Yes its great for health. They are full of vitamin C.  As far as I know they do not have any adverse effects on health , yes they is fat in it...but its good fat. Its fat that can be broken down by our body and used for energy. You can have 2 glasses in the morning if you like , its doesnt have too much fat . It is also natural so its easier for your body to handle.

I hope this helps, Take care.

Hey sweetnirali,

I'm not entirely sure .I don't like using much protein powders because when I used to use them ...they were good, but when I stopped using them I noticed changes in my performance and strength( I used to play football for my college) . So I stopped using protein powders and now I use everything natural. And to be honest, it is much better than any powder or supplement you can buy. Supplements are only good for fast improvements , but they wont last too long. So basically the improvements will come fast and will go fast. 

I love milk, I used to hate it when I was a kid, but now I understand it has a lot of benefits to it. Back in the old days , people who used to work on construction and hard labour used to drink milk because its really good for your  bones. Tomorrow if you fall and break your bones, the calcium that is present in milk will help your bones regenerate and prevent yourself from breaking again. I know people who drink milk daily and have never broken their bones and even if they have , they are fully fit faster than someone who doesnt drink milk. It is especially important if you are still growing. 

Anyway , sorry for the lecture. But what I used to do and I think you will enjoy too is make somewhat of a milk shake...Do you have a blender at home??

If you do , you should try this:

1. Get one glass of milk, it doesnt matter if its powder or fresh milk. Ofcourse fresh milk is better. 

2. Then take one full ripe banana. You can use any fruit if you like , I like using banana's because they are sweet.

3. Then put the banana and the milk in the blender and blend till it is fine and smooth, you can add ice if you want a cool drink.

4. I like to also add nuts- cashews, almonds, walnuts, peanuts...any type of nuts. You can also add ice cream if you want...its really up to you. 

5. Lastly blend it all up and drink it . The ripe fruits will make it sweet and you wont even know your drinking milk. 

I like to have this drink for breakfast or after exercising.  I sometimes fill it with nuts, ice cream , more fruits etc. and blend it and have it as a meal. It gets me full if I  add ice cream and nuts.

I hope this was of some help. Let me know how it tasted , if you decide to try it.

Take care.

Thanks a looot kevofev for ur detailed answer...i just hate milk...my bones have weakened even when am quiet young...have low calcium..so doctor has strictly asked me to start having milk or the condition may worsen...i do have banana shake sometimes but wonder if its fattening,since bananas contain lots of calories if am not mistaken :)...also i have got acti life (chocolate flavour)..not liking it either...:)

i drink banana shake or acti life at night,bed time...hope thats ok?

Listen sweetnirali, if you want your condition to get worse then don't drink milk...if you want it to get better you can take your doctor's advice and you should take my advice too.

 I am not a doctor, but you should definitely take your doctors advice. Its really not very complicated...if you don't do what your supposed to...your body will suffer the consequences.
 
If you are really concerned about fats and all that, do 10 push-ups a day...you will burn the fats slowly. Plus the fats in banana are good, its not like you are eating 100 banana's a day. Only one or two per day.
If I were you, I would have a banana shake in the morning and actilife before going to bed EVERYDAY.

No  no no , im not annoyed at all. I'm just trying to help you , but you can only help yourself. 

That's good that your having milk, try to drink more if you can. Don't do a lot of exercises if it hurts, do simple things like walking, power walking ( its just walking fast with your arms going up and down) and you can also do some stretching.  Strech as often as you can , its not difficult and it shouldnt hurt. If it does hurt then , relax for sometime. 

Let me know if you have any more questions, i'll be happy to help. 

Take care.
