I just stumbled across the newest Got Milk ad featuring a Biggest Loser contestant and thought I’d post it for fun! Julie’s story was and is absolutely inspirational and it’s amazing everything she achieved over the course of season four. If you want to learn more about her, or contact her, you can visit Julie’s MySpace page!
If you’re wondering about drinking milk when on a diet … especially after all my ranting about not drinking your calories, milk is the one exception to that “rule.” Generally, you don’t want to use up your calories on a beverage that is not going to do anything for managing your appetite, however, there is so much good nutrition in milk that it is actually a vital part of any diet. I generally shoot for at least three servings of dairy a day, one of which is eight ounces of (skim) milk – usually on my cereal, but sometimes in a glass. My other two servings are often times slices of cheese on a sandwich or a cheese stick, and a low calorie yogurt or yogurt smoothie.
