I've been drinking about 1.5 liters of whole milk a day for a few months, and I've gained quite a lot of weight, mostly in the belly. I also struggle to get enough protein in my diet because it's hard to drink any more whole milk than 1.5 litres a day, and milk is one of the only protein sources I can tolerate. Every time I try a low-fat milk, even if I just take a few sips, I'll get bloating, gut pain, and diarrhea. I've tried many different types, ultra-pastuerised, non-homogenised, etc., although I can tolerate any type of whole milk. I've even tried eating some fat from butter or coconut oil alongside it, but I always get the same reaction. I've tried antibiotics a few times too, but that didn't help. Why would I not be able to tolerate low-fat milk?
