I do understand that better now, what with heart issues and swelling now.

I sure do appreciate everything you have shared. I think it's time to check out the goat products.

I will think about giving that a try. How long were you using SparkPeople before you started using the meal planner. I am using the meal tracker right now. It's hard when I am at work though. Especially since I like the convenience of the cafeteria they offer.

I love cheese but limit it due to the salt watching my food tracker on that...

Taking one day at a time.
I know that I can do it.

I love cheese also. I don't think I have found a cheese that I don't like. Of course I grew up here in Wisconsin where there is cheese in abundance.

I love cheese, too. I needed to change things up a bit, so for the last few weeks I've been using the meal planner on the nutrition tracker and to my surprise I've been eating a lot of real cheese! Almost every day!

I can do it!!

I've been experimenting with A1/A2 dairy for several weeks now and am 90% sure that I can only handle A2. Thankfully all goat dairy (and I think sheep dairy) is A2. Cows need to be tested to know. When I have A1 dairy my pulse goes up by 15-20 beats. I found out because I run with a heart rate monitor and was still wearing it after my run when I had some yogurt. There's more on my blog. I've read the book "The devil in the milk" and while there is not enough research I find the evidence pretty convincing. If it turns out to be true as described this could be another national health disaster just like sugar consumption in this country.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

That was very interesting reading! I'll have to check this out with our local farmers. I read the warnings and will heed them.

I love cheese and all dairy foods. I always use full fat, the only kind that is natural. I also have learned that there are two types, A1 and A2. A2 is the kind that is not harmful and well tolerated for most people unless they have leaky gut syndrome. A1 is the more common kind in this country and it causes real problems for me.

Thank you, I will check that out if I get to Sam's. My husband and I are over 60, no children still at home and Sam's is a distance we rarely travel.

I eat cheese that doesn't have any hormones. Sam's club sells a gruyere cheese that has no hormones. I limit myself to one ounce a few times a week. I don't eat ice cream, cottage cheese or cream cheese. They say to much dairy is not good for you so I do limit myself. If you have that urge try to pick a low fat variety. Hope this helps.
