Before you think about losing weight, you probably should complete a readiness questionnaire
Thankfully there are numerous online tests you can take to assess if you are ready to take on the challenge. Here is an adequate cross section
The “Weigh to wellness” readiness questionnaire is here

It seems that for some, milk is the spunk of the devil.
For me, as an old trainer ( 58) milk is what Margaret Thatcher took away from us primary children ( and with it, my early role as class milk monitor)
But, all my life I’ve been told that milk is good for you. Its a core component of nutrition. But it’s so often attacked, I thought I’d do this research.
I looked up
Milk and dairy products: good or bad for human health? An assessment of the totality of scientific evidence.
See abstract here
It basically concluded that “The totality of available scientific evidence supports that intake of milk and dairy products contribute to meet nutrient recommendations and may protect against the most prevalent chronic diseases, whereas very few adverse effects have been reported”
Obviously, if you are allergic to milk, or don’t like it, don’t have it. But don’t bitch about it, or make shit up about it. Sure some cows are pumped full of hormones.
but, according to nutrition advice.com
- “A food safety review demonstrated that recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH) is not biologically active in humans. Furthermore, the concentration of the hormone insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) found in hormone-treated cow’s milk is no more than that of breast milk (10).
- Levels of IGF-1 in the human digestive tract are many hundreds of times larger than the concentrations found in hormone-treated milk. Additionally, oral consumption of IGF-1 appears to have no biological activity (11).
In other words, even if people do get traces of hormones through consuming milk, it will likely have no effect.”
However, the protein is complete, its full of vitamins and minerals has fat and carb, so an all-round great snack.
So, it’s still a free society. If you don’t like it, go and drink something else.
