3rd dairy-free day, short run

Friday, February 01, 2013

I managed to not get tempted by dairy, but it came at a cost. I increased my berries to 3 servings and I had more almond milk and nuts than what would have been ideal carb-wise. But one step at a time.
I did get a 2-mile run in and an hour of strength training. I hope I'll finally feel like a long run this weekend.
Mile 1: 4.3 mph
Mile 2: 4 mph

    My daughter gave up wheat and dairy a year ago (she was already a vegetarian), and feels great. I've been drinking soy milk for about a year and like it; haven't tried almond milk yet. I gave up wheat a month ago, and feel a lot better (no bloating, gas), and have lost 5 lbs. I'm really learning a lot about nutrition and about tweaking what I eat, little by little, until I find the right mix for myself.

    Thanks for keeping us up to date on your dairy-free experiment. I'd like to try some of those coconut options if I can find ones really low in sugar.

    The China study that you mentioned was conducted using powdered casein, not natural unprocessed raw milk. It shows only that processed animal products from animals that were fed unnatural foods (grain instead of pesticide-free pasture) are dangerous. I know many people who are in excellent health who use raw dairy without any negative effects. My own sensitivity to dairy was caused by leaky gut syndrome which is a result of consuming grain and soy.
I would recommend to people who want to eat the healthiest kind of dairy and are not sensitive to it to try A2 milk that is raw, not homogenized and from non-sprayed pasture-fed animals.

    I stopped dairy right before the new year and I have felt so good every since. I loved it, but now am so glad I stopped all dairy and am loving the way I am feeling.

  Good for you! Have you read The China Study? That'll help you not want to eat dairy again!

    I switched to soy a long time ago and I really like it.

    Candypa, thanks for mentioning this. I've seen it at the store and it is a little higher in carbs than real yogurt, even the plain version, but I might have it occasionally. emoticon emoticon

  I like dairy too, but I have a dairy allergy among other things. I don't know if you can use this or not. I found a yogurt type food made from coconuts. It is pretty good. I added more fruit. It is not the consistancy of greek yogurt but not as thin as some of those other brands. It is called So Delicious and it comes in vanilla, blueberry, and strawberry/banana. I've only tried the blueberry one and it was good. So Delicious also has a coconut milk and it is okay. I haven't had dairy in over a month. I miss it, but not the problems.
