At what point do you cut out dairy during prep?

I have a coach helping me with posing, I am doing my own nutrition. I am 4.5 weeks out, I have kept one meal as a cup of 0% greek yogurt, trying to keep up calcium intake as long as much as I can. Do you guys think its time to cut it out or at least cut back? Thank you:)
