I ran across a gallery that attempts to answer "What does 200 calories look like?" (http://www.wisegeek.com/what-does-200-calories-look-like.htm
) and the glass of milk caught my eye.
Huh... milk doesn't have a strong taste. So I drank a nose-clipped glass of whole milk and followed up with a glass of water to wash out any of the flavor, and that held me till about 4pm when I got a little hungry and had another. Now it's 10pm (I'm on Korea time). All I've had today is water, milk, and a hot chocolate I had when I was studying at a coffee shop, and while I've felt a little snacky once or twice since the last glass of milk it hasn't been enough to get me off the couch.
I see you don't find much nutritional value in milk. And dairy makes some people sleepy (I haven't noticed that effect, myself). I comfort myself with the thought that at least it's better than sugar water.
It's better than sugar water, right?
Presuming some major downside doesn't come up, whole milk is a pretty darn easy way to get a Shangri-La dose. I mean, it takes a minute or so to drink a lot of cold milk with my nose clipped, but personally I'd much rather drink a big glass of milk than a small glass of oil.
