Not a hypothetical "anyone out there", I mean any of YOU fellow PHers of course. Simple question, does anyone consume a LOT of dairy and not just tolerate it but actually seem to thrive on it? And I don't just mean dairy fats like HWC, butter and... (more)

Hi everyone, I'm on a college campus and I don't have access to a kitchen. Most days I eat at least one and sometimes two meals in the dining hall, and I find eating paleo very restrictive of what I can eat in the dining hall. For dinner, I... (more)
Hi Everyone, I get acne from dairy but I have not tried raw dairy so I can't truly make the claim. Just curious: Do any of you get acne from most dairy but don't get acne from raw dairy such as raw milk?
Ok, so I'm not sure exactly what I need other than relief from compulsive eating of fatty foods that I crave: especially coconut butter (or anything coconut actually other than the oil) and cheese/full fat dairy. Now I do a good job of eliminating... (more)
I have, for years, an insatiable craving for heavy sweet cream. Before menopause, I would indulge in it a day before my period. I'd drink 8 or 16 ozs. of it as soon as I'd buy it. I'd drink it while still in the car. I couldn't possibly wait... (more)
I'm curious to hear how folks have fared enduring different levels of dairy elimination. Specifically, for those who had success eliminating dairy and solving problems as a result, do you find fermented dairy to be problematic as well? How are... (more)
I don't want to blame new beloved and newly adopted eating style, and I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but: has anyone ever heard of dairy causing Tendonitis (of foot/ankle), muscle stiffness, muscle aches, muscle cramps, joint pain, etc.? (I... (more)
I have been eating rather strict Paleo\crossfit for about 6 months now. Started with a very Strict Whole 30 program which opened my eyes to how good one can feel when they stay strict Paleo. I have lost 40 pounds so far and I am close to being... (more)
I love coffee, and for the most part, it doesn't give me any issues. However, sometimes, if I'm using half and half or drinking a latte, I'll develop extreme stomach pain and/or diarrhea. I've never had this problem using heavy cream in my coffee... (more)
I know the answer is for ME to remove dairy to see if I NOTICE any difference, but before I consider further restricting my universe of food choices, I'm just curious: Is it common to NOTICE feeling better after removing dairy from an otherwise... (more)
I am a college student and like a lot of people.. my budget is limited. I don't buy any vegetables unless they are potatoes or cabbage to make saurkraut. Thinking about my diet/the plant/my wallet two questions come to mind. Why should i buy... (more)
Is store bought kefir dead from pasteurization and thus a waste of time? Well a waste aside from the taste. *I don't know if they pasteuri*ze it or not??? I just assumed as a liquid dairy product it would probably have to be pasteurized to sell... (more)
I am just a little confused about what "paleo" means, I guess. How is it any different than the Atkins diet if people use condiments and dairy products? As far as I know, paleo doesn't necessarily imply low carb. Personally, I don't fathom that... (more)
Quick question regarding dairy. I was following a fairly strict paleo diet for almost two months and I was feeling great (had some cheats, but I'm okay with that). About two weeks ago I started putting heavy cream in my coffee. In the last 10... (more)
Joint pain and fatigue can be symptoms of a dairy allergy. You should eliminate dairy for a while (2-4 weeks), re-introduce it and see if the symptoms return. If you experience something similar, then you most likely have a dairy allergy.
Back in 2004 I was self diagnosed with Lactose intolerance. I was bad enough off that even a chocolate bar would set off my lactose intolerance. Last year I found out (like most everyone else) that I am gluten intolerant. I did a little digging... (more)
Absolutely, as a matter of fact, gluten, gliadin, and host of other "goodies" found in wheat actually damage the small intestine cells that make the enzyme that digests lactose (called lactase). Its very common to see the return of these cells to... (more)
Hello! I apologize in advance for this googlish question, which you'd probably think would be better asked on yahoo answers or something like that, but I feel I've more chances getting a great answer from traditional-foods crowd. All I'd get on... (more)
Hey all, I just recently had my first lipid profile and the doctor seems alarmed by the results, and the fact that I eat so much saturated fat. I'm a 25 year old crossfitter (5'7", 165, 8-10% BF). I seem to perform best with lots of fat and... (more)
Positions on dairy in a "paleo" diet aside... I am lactose intolerant, which I started noticing when I was in high school and my daily carton of milk gave me digestive upset (well, I was sure this was it - could have been my sandwich bread, too).... (more)
In January of 2012 I became convicted to give up all grains. I of course had the withdrawal period and felt much better than my previous life with grains. A week or so later I also decided to give up all sugar except for the occasional use of... (more)
I recently discovered I am wheat intolerant and over the last few years have been gaining without cause. Now that I have cut out wheat I am feeling much better, no more heart burn, headaches, etc. However I am not seeing much in the way of weight... (more)
There is no one size fits all. It's not all or nothing with this diet. Try to eat whole natural foods (fresh meat, fresh vegetables, and fresh fruit) as much as possible and avoid processed foods as much as possible.
I am pretty new to the paleo world. When i started in January, i was a Vegetarian (i ate fish). I started by eliminating wheat and then went from there. i was already eating very healthy so it was not too hard to adapt. At first i lost a... (more)
