By limiting dairy–based foods you protect your bones and blood vessels.
Limit your intake of milk, yogurt, and cheese to ½-cup milk or½-cup yogurt or 1-ounce cheese per day. Most dairy foods are very high in phosphorus.
The phosphorus content is the same for all types of milk – skim, low fat, and whole! If you do eat any high-phosphorus foods, take a phosphate binder with that meal.
Dairy foods “low” in phosphorus:
•Butter and tub margarine
•Non-dairy whipped topping
If you have or are at risk for heart disease, some of the high fat foods listed above may not be good choices for you.
Certain brands of non-dairy creams and “milk” (such as rice milk) are low in phosphorus and potassium. Ask your dietitian for details.

But even the best of these years are filled with pain and trouble;soon they disappear, and we are gone."(Psalms 90:10)
