Let me start by saying that I am in no way against dairy. I just dieted down to 10% bf while losing 17 pounds an regularly ate dairy throughout the process.

I had someone tell me the other day that they were going to cut dairy from their diet to avoid intestinal inflammation and increase nutrient absorption. I didn't know how to respond honestly. I did a little research and couldn't come up with much. Anyone have any insight, studies, or articles on dairy and these supposed side effects that I am not familiar with? After all, I thought calcium and other things in dairy helped absorb nutrients.

Are you lactose intolerant?

It doesn't sound like you are. And thus there's no problem.

No I'm not and I don't think the person who said this is either. You're saying no inflammation occurs unless intolerant to some degree?

Drinking more than about half a glass of milk at a time turns my guts into a small volcano... I am fine with smaller amounts of milk in coffee or on cereal.

Has anyone tried using a lactase supplement? Milk is cheap and convenient to get where I work so I would like to be able to consume more of it.

iPhone, don't mind my spelling errors when there is no signature under my response.
