Milk is good for you - in moderation. But too much of it can make you lethargic and fat, according to Hans-Helmut Martin, a nutritionist who works for the Association for Independent Health Consulting in Germany.

Mr. Martin said that the recommended daily intake of milk and dairy products is 300 to 500 grams. People who do not like plain milk can consume yogurt, cheese, curdled milk or buttermilk instead, preferably with little sugar or artificial colouring, he said.

“Overdosing,” however, leads to weight gain. The many saturated fatty acids in dairy products slow down metabolism, another result of which is lethargy.

Too little milk is unhealthy, too. People who drink insufficient amounts of it or none at all could develop health problems at some point. A potential consequence, Mr. Martin said, is calcium insufficiency, which can lead to osteoporosis, the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density.

“And it’s bad if the stage has been set for that in childhood,” Mr.Martin said.
