Thanks for the input everyone! For now, I'm going to try keeping the daily yogurt, switch from a latte to french press in the mornings, and only do a cup of milk after my workouts with my protein powder. Other than that, I'll be sticking to Paleo. I'll try that for a few weeks and see how it goes :)

Thanks!
Katie

I haven't had a glass of milk in over 10 years. I eat active yogurt and cheese. I take a calcium supplement. Have you tried Almond milk?

You might try looking at South Beach Diet.

I wish you the best with your journey into learning what will help you and work for you.

I cut dairy all together before Spark. After following their diet plans I do have an Activia once daily, and I use parm cheese for eggs. Milk for cereal on occasion. emoticon

I haven't been having dairy, at least not milk - I do eat cheese though. (don't know for sure what the difference would be, cheese is made from milk) I'm thinking that at least by summer though I will be adding some milk (powdered) because I like to make smoothies and those are a milk base usually. Although have been using some protein powders and that seems to work alright. I don't do too many of those in winter..

I'd like you to kee us posted on how you do, having milk... if it makes any difference in your efforts.

I am not on real low carb but a plan between Atkins and South Beach. My M.D. wants me to have 2 servings of dairy a day so I eat low carb dairy and cheese. I have Kroger Carbmaster yogurt and Hood Calorie Countdown Dairy Beverage.

I was just reading about the Paleo and the Primal diets over the weekend. I don't think that I can completely give up dairy. So I decided to try limit it to one serving per day.

I eat a lot of cheese. I have plain (home made) yogurt almost every day. I use milk in the morning latte. I do try to get full fat dairy and avoid the low fat stuff. It is more filling and easier on the blood sugars.

I've been doing low-carb without really thinking about it...but now that I'm thinking about it, I'm trying to find a plan (either from a book, or one that I make up) to follow.

Right now, I'm leaning towards paleo, but that plan wants you to cut out dairy. I usually have at least 8 oz of milk, and a cup of plain greek yogurt every day...I don't really want to cut those out.

So, I'm wondering what y'all have experienced with dairy. Do you include milk, cheese, yogurt?

Thanks!
