    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.

    OP, also worth considering when drinking milk straight from the fridge:

    I have never drunk cold milk again after reading the above sentences.

    I microwave all my milk in a 600ml mug adding salt and sugar as desired half way through. No issues

    Cold hands huhh.... have you taken your temperature and pulse after consuming milk and letting it digest for a while?

    The imemdiate effects of codl ahnds could come down to a wide variety fo factors. Maybe you are ahving an allergic reaction.
