    I've come across two guys like this over the past year. They seem to get in their heads that dairy is all of a sudden bad: going to the extreme to avoid any milk based foods or even brownies made with milk

    I know everyone's digestives are different, but I don't see what's the deal against dairy. I drink milk almost daily (though opt for 1-2% only) and don't care if things have milk or not. ive heard the argument that it's better for your skin...but to me that's less to do with dairy and more to do with overall hygiene, environmental conditions, and general health.

    To me I find it annoying when hanging with someone who every decision to eat has to revolve around whether it has dairy (or bread, or gluten or any of that other stuff people try to avoid) in it or not.

    Yeah. Those people suck. The ones that says that they're lactose intolerance when they're not are the worst.

    I'm so allergic to cow dairy that it could put me in the emergency room. The only milk I have ever safely ingested came from my mother when I was a baby. It bewilders me that anyone would consume the milk of a different species. I wonder why anyone who has passed puberty would continue drinking milk from any source.

    I love cow's milk. But there is such a thing as lactose intolerance. A condition that is genetic, and does, I believe, follow the male line.

    My father could not drink milk, or have ice cream. It skipped me, but hit my youngest son. After about 4 years of age drinking milk or eating ice cream made him sick.

    Well, his older brother could have ice cream, as could the other kids, so something had to be done. Cause kids have to eat ice cream, I didn't want him to be the odd one out.

    I learned about Lactaid tablets. And gave them to him before he had ice cream, or something with milk. He'd be OK. So he'd carry the tablets in his pocket, for the times his mother & I weren't there. It was important he not be separated from the other kids, and also just enjoy common childhood pleasures.

    Incidentally, in my later years I'm starting to exhibit some lactose intolerance myself. Can still drink milk and have ice cream (thank gawd!), just not too much. Overdo things and it's not pretty. But a little in moderation is still a joy. icon_biggrin.gif

    My trainer just told me to stop using dairy, to reduce inflammation (his words). Not sure I can do it. Non-dairy creamers suck.

    I take a daily dose of milk, no not the ones from a penis, but I eat it with my cereal. However, too much of it seems to bring all these acne with it, not a fan.

    That's why I believe the 2% and less is better. I never drink whole milk anymore...unless that's all available. But 0-2% milk shouldnt cause acne.

    And what's to much milk? I can drink 4 servings in a sitting and be okay. Kinda fills me up, but no harm. At one point I thought I was becoming lactose intolerant, but that had to do with me coming off a stomach infection and the meds I was taking wasn't mixing well. I stopped the meds and was able to get back on milk.

    Lol drinking milk doesn't make anyone less of a man. Remember the 90s, 2000s ad campaign: milk does a body good. And when it comes to working out, milk does wonders for muscle repair.

    I will say however, all of of the non dairy guys were mixed raced...with black and there's a consensus that many black guys are lactose intolerant. Idk....they never gave me a specific reason why they were getting rid of dairy though.

    I wanna tell them mofos, Don't go to Wisconsin and talk about not eating dairy. They'll be arrested and charged with blasphemy lol.

    Good word....the other thing is I'm very keen on good milk. I dont do expired or off smelling milk at all. I barely trust drinking milk from people's fridge because it's sometimes expired. I believe id got a bad case of food poisoning from lukewarm milk at a popular Vegas casino. But it could have been from anything. But...I tend to now avoid milk from resturaunts unless its bottle/carton served

    FuzzyPecs28 it's quite telling that you are intolerant of people different from you.

    Some people have medical or ethical reasons for their food choices. What's your lame excuse for being a hater?

    Coming from the dairy state, trust me, dairy is good for you, unless you have some special condition that prohibits you from having dairy products. Milk is one of the healthiest drinks in the world. It's offered after races here and is good for your whole body (muscles and bones), mind, and spirit. My parents and grandparents were big into dairy products (milk, cheese, and homemade ice cream with fresh whole cream). My Grandma and Grandpa had a small corner grocery store in the town of Hortonville for 40 years. That was their entire life's work. And they lived well into their 90's with sharp minds and strong bones. My Dad is 92 and very healthy yet and he drank warm milk right from the cow as a kid on the farm! Got Milk? Eat cheese curds! lol

    I have excellent healthy youthful looking skin and don't use any skin products, not even sunscreen and I am outdoors nude a lot in the sun and I consume a lot of dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream). Dairy products are a daily staple in my diet. Got Milk? Eat cheese curds! We all scream for ice cream and Culver's frozen custard! lol

    I drink nothing but whole milk and have never had any acne. My Dad drank warm milk right from the cow on the farm and never had acne either. Nothing but the best! I think a lot of the meds people take today affect how your body processes food. But I'm not on any meds and have never had any problem with any foods I like to eat. I also eat a lot of fresh lake fish, not from any store, but fish I catch myself from cold clean waters in Wisconsin. I also eat a lot of deer meat. Deer sausage and jerky are the best! The best diet anyone can have is to eat a whole variety of different foods.

    I avoid it because it makes me break out and after having cystic acne from 18 to 25 I would rather not repeat the experience.

    I'm very senstive to spoiled or spoiling milk. Sense it before others do. People doubt me when I say it smells spoiled to me, it's OK to them. By the next day they agree.

    I used to get acne outbreaks during my teens into my twenties after eating chocolate. Didn't make the connection until I read about it. So I watched after I indulged in a good dose of chocolate. Sure enough, Zit City a day or so later.

    So I just learned to go easy on the chocolate, that I love. No zit problem. And after my later 30s no zits at all, could eat all the chocolate I wanted. But had also lost my lust for it by then. Still like it today, just in moderation.

    We go through stages in our lives, like seasons. That we need to understand and accept. And exploit to enjoy, for what those stages are worth, in passing.

    One of my favorite personal expressions, that I had to adopt due to countless Army reassignments to places I hated, over 25 years, was "Thrive where you're planted". You always can, if you try.

    And our own age is one of the places we're constantly replanted, whether we like it or not. Thrive there, or fight it. I think I can guarantee you'll be happier accepting it than fighting it.

    And so things like lactose intolerance happen, all your life, or at some point in your life. Handle it, deal with it, move on. The older you get the more life is a series of personal adjustments and compromises. I've got dozens of these things I've gotta avoid or moderate.

    What I try to avoid is making a big fuss about them with others. Nobody wants to hear about my problems, and least of all when at a dinner table. I wanna be seen by friends as agreeable and not difficult. And to myself, as well.

    Thriving where I'm planted, pleased & contented whatever the circumstances that life imposes upon me personally. Whatever unpleasant things gets imposed upon people for whom I'm responsible or care, however, brings out a somewhat different, more aggressive side of me.

    So. Simply put. It depends on that persons view of what is healthiest for them.

    Sounds like you're taking it a bit personally, almost like an offense. At least that's what it's been for me when I've felt a similar way to what you described.

    When I was first really learning nutrition, I had to experiment on myself - it takes time to feel out what your body likes and does not. It also takes completely removing certain things from ones diet for some, even though that method is likely beneficial
    for everybody. The fewer things in your diet, the easier it is to read your body, and the better you feel (potentially) physically, and mentally as far as having learned about yourself.
