How to build muscle when  milk  products are not an option?

Eat lots of protein: Milk & dairy products are not your only source of protein and certainly not an absolute requirement for muscle growth. Instead, focus on consuming lots of non-dairy protein thru out the day, eg fish, chicken, beans, etc. And don't forget regular exercise, too.

Is Muscle milk ok to give to my 12 year old son. He is a very active athlete.

Protein: Muscle milk is just a high protein shake, with vitamins, minerals. If your son gets adequate protein from food, this is probably unnecessary. An athletic 12 year old is probably eating a lot. If his diet is balanced and healthy, he is in good shape. A bit more protein will not harm your son, but I tend to be concerned about what else may be in these shakes (read ingredients carefully).

Muscle milk as a meal replacement 2x a day, is this okay?

More balance in need: Protein increase and monitor carbs, ideally you could use a nutritionist to assist. Some personal trainers are particulary good with targetted diet. It is always helpful to rememberthat diet overall must be balanced. The muscle milk is not a replacement but a supplement.

Is it good to eat half cup of oats with 1 cup of hot milk at night as i want to gain muscle????

Is it good to eat half cup of oats with 1 cup of hot milk at night as i want to gain muscle????

Oats & Milk: are carbs (which turn to sugar) but protein is needed for the possibility of gaining muscle mass. Consider a protein powder shake in the morning. Also do some light body training or see a personal trainer. Above all, like yourself and be neat, clean, and a decent person. That's more attractive than anything else. Peace and good health. Shanti.

What do you suggest if i've been sick since last year from muscle milk and I am afraid i got mad cow?

See your doctor: If you have been sick for one year, you need to uncover the cause. "Mad cow" would be causing a rapid deterioration in function, and unlikely that a year would pass allowing you to still ask this question.
