Yeah. I rarely eat cheese, also. The orange cheddar has dye in it. So, I buy white chaeddar for the family. But, I do eat skim ricotta cheese a lot. For some reason, I cannot stomach the texture of cottage cheese, so I eat ricotta. It is more calorie dense, but it is clean and TASTY. Good with some fruit in it!
According to the Eat Clean Diet book Tosca Reno includes low fat varieties of cheese, milk and yogurt. She includes a lot of soy and almond milk in her menu's. In her Cooler Plan she has soy milk, skim milk, nuts, nut butter, eggs, low fat yogurt, low fat cottage cheese and low fat cheese listed.

I'm going to say that it does sound like it would be unhealthy for you to cut out dairy.
I'm new to clean eating, but from what I understand if you buy organic dairy products then you should be good and stay away from super processed cheeses and yogurts with added sugar or bad stuff and you should be okay.

I am very new to clean eating and had a question about dairy. Is dairy part of clean eating? If so, are there certain yogurts, milk, and cheeses that are better than others? I am a pescatarian (though I rarely eat fish), so I get a lot of my protein from cheese, beans, and nuts/nut butters. I'd hate to have to cut dairy out and don't know if it would be healthy for me to do so.
