Lets talk about milk, the stuff thats “good for your bones” But is it? Many studies point in the other direction.

Milk is shown to increase the risk of fractures and the countries with the highest rate of osteoporosis are the ones where people drink the most milk.



So what’s the purpose of milk? Cows milk in this case is natures way of getting a small 45kg calf up to around 200kg in 6 to 8 months…. ( Wait … wow) That alone should be cause for you to try a non or low dairy diet.

Benefits of a low to no dairy diet may include:

Less bloating

Clearer skin

Improved digestion

Relief from allergies (my favorite)

Now in saying all of this is it difficult to cut dairy? Well yes. Is it worth a shot if you struggle with any of the above? Then also yes. The magic of any nutritional info lies between the lines, in that what works for you may not work for me.  We as a species are such a melting pot of ancestral bits and bobs that any diet should be your own trial and error.  There is no cookie cutter way, there are however standouts.  Processed sugar = bad! Dairy = ?
