Do you pay close attention to your diet, or do you exercise enough but still not lose weight? Read this blog to learn all about milk and weight loss.

Of course, milk itself, like other foods, will not automatically make you fat. Here, milk consumption, milk type and processing, and personal nature also play an important role. However, various studies examining the link between weight and milk have concluded that milk is undoubtedly the cause of weight gain. If you want to study this topic in more depth, you can read the relevant research here.

Is there too much milk?

These days, most of us will add a little coffee to milk instead of a little coffee to coffee. 500ml cups are now the standard equipment in many cafes. A very simple latte made from semi skimmed milk can provide about 200 calories per serving. This is not just a drink, but a light meal. If you indulge in such coffee creation every day, you will accumulate a lot of extra calories, and you may not lose weight as planned.

Hormonal fluctuations caused by milk

Of course, all milk should be produced according to demand. Yes, I deliberately write “production”. Because today’s dairy farming basically has only cows and happy cows milked by farmers on green grasslands.

Milk should be cheap, have a long shelf life and be readily available. To ensure this, cows are milked for about 300 days a year, most of which are pregnant. Pregnant milk contains about a third of estrogen and significantly more progesterone than non pregnant milk. Like the nutrients it contains, we absorb hormones when drinking milk.

High estrogen and progesterone levels can cause fat cells in the hips and thighs to increase and promote fat accumulation. In addition, estrogen can also promote water retention – water usually accumulates throughout the body. Typical areas are the abdomen, legs, hands, and face.

Therefore, if you are currently low in calories and have not lost weight, please try not to drink milk for 3 weeks to see how your body changes.
