Tip #23 is,

Skip the Rice or Almond Milk

Lactose intolerant? Switching to non-dairy milk alternatives could be adding an extra 30 calories (per cup) to your daily diet. That doesn’t sound like much, but if you drink a cup every day it can add up to three extra pounds a year. Instead, try lactose-free, skim milk instead. Not to mention, almond and rice milk also have far less protein than regular milk (1.5 g and 1 g per cup, respectively, compared to 8 g), says Rania Batayneh, a nutritionist and owner of Essential Nutrition for You in San Francisco, Calif. “Milk also has much more bone-healthy calcium, with 300 mg, compared to almond milk’s 2 mg and rice milk’s 1 mg.”

    Thanks. I am very latose intolerant. I have been drinking unsweetened almond milk. The calorie count is MUCH less that milk, but I didn't take into consideration the calcium and protein. I never get enough protein daily.

    I need 2% milk for my cereal. So far I haven't been able to develop a taste for skim or fat-free milk. I eat healthy cereal and add blueberries/almonds.
The are other ways that I cut down.
Calcium is so important that I really try to get in plenty each day.
