When I was younger, I had to to drink a glass of milk with every meal. As I got older my dad loosened up a bit with his rule, and I found that I drank less and less of the stuff. In my father's generation they drank milk in the same way many of us grew up drinking soda or juice. Nowadays, it's more unusual to drink milk than not — something I've learned only because I get funny stares whenever I order a glass while out. The Got Milk? ad campaign was born years ago as a way to give milk cool status again. Well, you can't get cooler than this: its latest model is Lauren Conrad, and the company created interest by campaigning with LC's fans over Twitter.
Besides having the backing of LC, here are five reasons you should enjoy a glass of milk today:
- According to a study, women who drank two glasses of fat-free milk after strength training gained more muscle and lost more fat as compared to women who consumed energy drinks.
- Dairy fat is good for the heart. It may lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, or decrease the chances of a heart attack.
