Re: Fear of drinking milk...
You gain a pound of fat by eating 3,500 more calories than you're burning, period. You can do those calories with milk or you can do it with candy bars or you can do it with kentucky fried chicken. All things in moderation.
People trying to gain muscle, or bulk up, eat a lot of calories because gaining isn't easy. Milk is something they use because its healthful, unlike sodas. Keep in mind that gaining 'weight' is not the same as gaining 'fat'.
You can get calcium from many sources, not just milk. Beans, green leafy vegetables, whole grain products, nuts and figs all contain calcium. Think about it, there are people out there who are lactose intollerant and cannot drink milk, they must also get their calcium, just from other sources.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.
