    Do you drink it cold? I have to put on some warm clothes every time I consume 1L of milk straight from the fridge.

    Yeah that is not uncommon. Just like a large cup of hot cocoa or coffee can make you feel warm, cold milk can make you feel cold. Trouble with focusing could be caused by increased blood flow from the brain into the stomach area in order to both digest the milk & maintain body temperatures.

    Try opening the milk carton and keeping it in a room temperatures for half an hour before drinking it, or alternatively microwaving it, and see if the problem persists. Warm fatty milk is pretty tasty imo.

    Add sugar to the milk and drink the milk warm

    It is "cooling" in the TCM paradigm. Also, many are allergic to it... Supposedly mostly due to its proteins - does it happen with goal milk, for example?

    It could also be because of the amount of liquid in comparison to sodium.
    Id try salting meals more in correspondance to how much is drunk throughout the day.

    Also, try drinking one cup at a time, not a whole litre.
