Milk or Water

Hi all,
 I've started to include a whey protein shake into my diet and its a pretty high protein diet with about 200g of protien a day and 300-400g of carbohydrate (the fat coming from most of my protien source), I am not sure whether or not my two shakes a day should be with water or milk and was wondering what other peoples preferences are when it comes too there shake, and what would be better for a beginners diet/lifting routine? Any advice knowledge or suggestions welcome! Thanks, Dev.

    What are your goals mate?.......If your wishing to bulk then I would have my breakfast shake with milk and possibly put some oats in aswell........PWO (Post-Work-Out) take your whey with water as said for quicker absorbancy, alot of people also put in a fast acting carb like dextrose/maltodextrin, its cheap from any supplement suppliers or even Holland and Barret or Boots.

    Goals are like you said to generally bulk all over mate and make a good strong base and core. Think ill look to take my wake with milk and PWO with water like you said, and definitely going too look into this dextrose/maltodextrin as i have seen people talk about this as a good carb booster. Thank you for the help and tips really appreciated! Dev

    I would only use dextrose/malto after workout as they are high gi. Better sources of carbs would be oats/barley etc. You might want to consider casein before bed, also milk and healthy fats can be used to slow absorption further.

    Same here. Always water for PWO and always milk for pre-bed casein shake. Other than that I go with s/s milk for bulking and water for cutting.

    always water post workout
    other times is determined by your diet needs ... if you want the extras milk provides you have it, if not water.
