Since you want to include the cheese and yogurt in your diet, I would suggest that you use the enzyme lactase pills when you eat these foods. When taken with the dairy--the enzyme will digest the lactose. They are available at any pharmacy.
Aged cheese and fermented yogurt is usually easier to tolerate for those with lactose intolerance---for the processing removes much of the lactose. You may find that you can easily tolerate smaller amounts with a meal...but by itself as a snack---you may have more problem, etc. Test and see.

You sound just like me! I recently had to give up dairy, and by god I miss my cheeses.. Not that much advice to give, but lots and lots of sympathy to offer. So far I have curbed my cravings by eating anything in sight, and upping the red wine and chocolates. emoticon

I have read there is something called "soy-cheese" and nutritional yeast, but I haven't gotten around to try them yet. They supposedly taste cheesy.

On second thought, I have one healthy tip! Chia seeds soaked in soy-milk is my newest replacement for cottage cheese, but I am still learning to like it. Still, nutritionally they are pretty decent. The seeds contain a fair deal of protein and calcium and are very filling when soaked.

For me the problem was with milk, not cheese or yoghurt. I still eat the latter regularly (a good quality one that has whole-grains in it too) and cheese occasionally, but that one is only because of the calories. I also use Cottage Cheese a fair bit, just not a lot of it at a time, As far as milk substitute is concerned, I use Soy Milk - others may use Rice Milk or Almond Milk. Just make sure that any alternative is a good source of protein and calcium.

Initially I couldn't have it for a few months without it affecting me, but now I can consume small amounts of cow's milk, but not regularly. As far as replacing the cheese, can you eat small amounts of a tasty cheese, and perhaps put something with it? (bit of pineapple, chutney/relish/pickle) or pear?
