What's up with guys who suddenly don't eat dairy?

    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?

    I don't drink milk or eat cheese, because I've shit myself after having some.
