    Default Strong Medicine milk and muselix

    I know this is not the best place for these simple questions, but the Nutrition Forum seems to be dead, and my post there never showed up. I love what I've read in Strong Medicine and am trying to integrate the lessons there with my six year love affair with Convict Conditioning. My questions relate to the nutrition aspects of Strong Medicine.

    1. What do the authors think of dairy products? I can find nothing (other than whey being used in shakes with coconut milk).

    2. While the authors approve of (gluten free) oatmeal, do they find muselix (not cooking, but soaking the oats in an acidic water or juice base) an acceptable form of preparation?

    Thanks for any enlightenment on this. Long time DD follower and owner of many a DD book, DVD, and kettlebell.

    While not one of the authors, (wish I had written it), I have a few thoughts on your questions.
    If you look at the research on dairy, it is not something that you really need. There is a lot of evidence that dairy intake actually leads to loss of bone density in alter years of life. There is also a large segment of the population that is unable to digest dairy products, so they are no benefit to that group. I have also recently come across a study linking dairy ingestion before the age of 1 and later onset of diabetes.
    I avoid dairy and try to get the calcium and vitamin D from other sources. Green leafy vegetables for Ca and other goodness and sunlight for D.

    No clue on the muselix. Sorry

    Hi, Paul. Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I am familiar with much of the research and have done a lot of personal experimentation, myself. For a couple years, I had a raw milk, whey shake daily as an extra protein source. Can't say using it or stopping it made any noticeable difference, though. Of course, negatives and positives can be very subtle and are interlinked with everything else we ingest and do.

    I really don't do much these days, just some cheese and the addition of cream to my muselix (fat for energy). I'm one of those very lean types, so adding (or keeping at age 66) weight is not easy. I also lead a very physical life with exercise, work (very physical), and home (pretty physical).

    Mostly, I just found it odd that for the astounding amount of detailed information in this wonderful book, they seem to have neglected to mention dairy at all.

    BTW, I go the muselix route (long popular in Europe) as a time-saving method. Sleep is at a premium in my busy life. Modern man and all that.

    Thanks again. Keep strong!
