Milk vs buttermilk: Buttermilk has more calories and fat than milk, so you'll gain more weight faster with buttermilk. But, you don't need to drink either one to be healthy, though. Water is the healthiest thing for you to drink. You can get plenty of calcium and vitamin D from other, healthier, lower-fat sources, like plants or supplements.
