In this December 29, 2008 podcast, I interview personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach, and health specialist Paul Eastwood about dairy products and the effect of milk on the human body. There is quite a bit of confusion about whether dairy is good for fat loss, human performance, and overall health, and Paul and I have a conversation about some important things to consider before you tip back that glass of milk or grab another serving of string cheese. Included in our discussion:

Is milk a “low glycemic index” food, and if so, is that a good thing?

How has the dairy industry changed over the past century, for better or worse?

Is raw milk even safe? How can you get it?

Are soy milk, almond milk, or rice milk good alternatives to cow milk?

What about milk from animals other than cows?

What about osteoporosis? Is that a concern for non-milk drinkers?

For further resources, Paul recommended the following books:

“The Deadly Dairy Deception” by Dr. Robert Bibb

“Don’t Drink Your Milk” by Dr. Frank Oski

“How to Eat, Move, and Be Healthy” by Paul Chek
