Re: Lactose-free milk vs. taking Lactaid with milk

.Rheanna

That was more than two cents worth! Thanks for your soapbox speech Rheanna.
I have heard almost the same message that Harry gave from a friend and I did give into it for the most part and for the lactose-intolerance issues. I have started eating milk cheeses and other products after giving them up for a few months this year but have cut way back. I do believe Americans eat way too many milk products and this is a culprit in the obesity and diabetes epidemic. I have heard that excess milk coats the intestines thereby making them less effective. Makes sense to me. I have been able to keep my weight off and build muscle mass easier than when I drank about a gallon of milk a week with a careful diet. Now I eat normal and don't have the weight issue. I look really good for a 45 year old--better than I did in my 20's and 30's!
