Balanced diet: Good diet requires a good balanced intake of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water. Of the protein component milk protein is considered to be of very high quality. Speak with a good dietician for more detailed advice.

You should have at least 1 gm/kg/day protein in your diet and milk protein is a very high quality product in that it contains a good mix of amino acids. It doesn't stimulate your body to produce muscles bIt it does provide the necessary raw materials for the production - I.e. The lumber, the nails, the nails, the concrete- to build the product. Take care.
