Why you should consider cutting dairy
There are many reasons why you should consider cutting dairy from your diet.
Whether it’s due to a recently diagnosed intolerance or just an overall lifestyle change there are multiple reasons you could benefit from cutting dairy from your diet.
Dropping some weight
Dairy is high in fats which is the most calorie dense macronutrient holding a whopping 9 calories per gram in comparison to carbs and protein which only contain 4 calories per gram.
This isn’t to say that fats are bad (let’s not go down that rabbit hole in this blog) They are just calorie dense and therefore should be controlled.
No more bloating
If you are prone to bloating and constipation Dairy could be the cause.
Approximately 65 percent of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose after infancy, this inability to digest the lactose in dairy causes the pain associated with bloating and constipation.
To help free things off a little try replacing dairy with more fibrous foods.
No more acne
When digested, the proteins (whey and casein) within milk causes a release of a hormone that triggers breakouts.
Swap your dairy products with a dairy free alternative and you should see some big improvements to your skin.
The unknown ingredients
Cows will often be given growth hormones to promote the production of milk as well as antibiotics. This seeps into the milk they produce, which we then consume.
Unfortunately, this could lead to antibiotic-resistant diseases in the long run.
