Have you ever gave up cheese and noticed an improvement in health?

Weight loss, better digestion, no grumbling stomach, better skin—things like that?

Then I’ll do it, R2. My stomach growls all the time, so it could be cheese. I don’t do carbs, but I do cheese. I’ll omit and see what happens.

Absolutely, OP. I gave up dairy and lost 30 pounds quite easily. My skin cleared up, too. I guess I wasn't made for dairy.

Nope! But I've had all that with giving up carbs.

Given up bread. I go on and off cheese. But I did notice 2 months ago, I hadn't had cheese in a month or more and felt better; lost weight. I'm back on cheese again but I add it to homemade stews.

You're giving up bacteria as well as dairy fat.

I gave up cheese when I went vegan.

It's an odd food to just give up - unless it is part of a larger diet change. How much cheese do you eat OP that you would expect a significant difference?

Most uses of cheese don't come down to that much per serving. I guess a grilled cheese sandwich.

Giving up chèvre would be akin to giving up fragrant cock. So, no.

What is this nonsense about cheese being bad for humans. Its very very very old staple food. Full fat cheese is good and some cheese have wonderful bacteria you WANT in your gut. Like sperm, again.

i started suffering gastro problems for 3 months in the beginning of college. was antisocial, passing gas all the time, stomach bloated, frequent trips to the bathroom, my grades fell. i couldn't figure out why. finally i made the connection that i may be lactose intolerant. cutting out dairy improved my digestion a ton, and i lost a lot of weight. i don't understand why (white) people are so obsessed with cheese. i gave it up very easily. i find cheese meh unless melted, and even then i only really like the milder/bland ones. the hardest dairy for me to give up was milk chocolate and creamy pastas, my weakness.

How much cheese does one must eat if by eliminating it from the diet one loses 20lbs? That much of a weight loss has to do with other factors.

French eat a lot of cheese and they are not fat.

My first weekend without dairy and I think it’s dropped my heart rate—30 minutes on the treadmill on an incline at 3.0 speed and my heart rate is 90.

by Anonymousreply 5112/03/2017

I dropped cheese when an Ayurvedic physician of some note took one look at me and said 'you like your cheese.' It shocked the fuck out of me. Did I look like a fucking rind of cheddar? A gouda? He never said. I certainly looked like a tomato after he said it. I didn't have any dramatic weight loss, but I did have better digestion.

by Anonymousreply 5212/03/2017

R52 my Dosha is Kapha, and apparently having that constitution means hard cheese or dairy from cows is verboten (lucky for me, I’m not crazy about cheese or milk so it doesn’t bother me). Soy &nutmilk is also off-limits. Goat’s cheese is totally fine, though, so I’m told. Looks like it’s all rice milk in my future.

by Anonymousreply 5312/05/2017

Yeah most people don't eat that much cheese, but if you're talking about dairy as a whole it might help your digestive problems.

And cutting out diary is more miraculous for women than it is men, IMO. I know a few women who stopped diary and it helped tremendously with their lady problems, heavy menstrual, bloating, and other things. And most dairy alternatives are overloaded with soy now, which is not really good for men.

R52 He may have actually smelled it. Our bodies can produce an aroma as we digest & process dairy products. If you've always lived somewhere like the US where dairy consumption is prevalent, you probably don't smell it (i.e. your nose has learned to filter out or ignore that smell unless it's really bad). If your physician is from an area where there's limited consumption of animal milk/dairy, he's more likely to pick up on that smell.

by Anonymousreply 5512/05/2017

Can you smell that smell?

by Anonymousreply 5612/05/2017

OP did you check with a doctor? The digestive system is complex and giving up a type of food is not always the solution. One of my colleague suffers from Crohn disease and just had a part of her intestine removed. A friend lost the capacity to digest dairy after doing anorexia for a few weeks. Do not play with you health and go check with a specialist instead of asking on an Internet forum (come back to talk about the news for ex) , your health is more important than your weight or the condition of your skin, and it might be a symptom for something more important.

Plenty of low carb ideas. Low carb pizza, made with low carb tortillas. Low carb Mexican lasagna, made with low carb tortillas. Cauliflower is your best friend. I search the internet most times I need to cook something and find a recipe I can live by (I hate those 27 ingredients recipes). I made this a lot carb California, broccoli chicken casserole that was amazing! If I like the recipe, I save it in my browser in a recipes folder. I use my phone for searching to I have the recipe by me when I cook. Low carb burritos, enchiladas. You wanted sweets? Buy the Russel Stover sugar free bag candies. I buy off their website, so I can buy just the Chocolate Truffles & Chocolate Coconut, as I could only find them in a mixed bag I bought at BJ's (like Costco, Sam's Club...I am not giving BJ's for candy...yet). The website gave me 20% off 1st time and free shipping over some amount. Once signed up, I get emails galore saving 50% off Christmas tins and 30% off all other candy. Keeps me happy.

My mother, in her early eighties, was diagnosed Diabetic and had to take the pills. The doctor said eventually the shots. By following a low-carb diet, I helped her to no longer need the pills. The doctor said she no longer has to identify as diabetic. It's been about 5 years. And for the latest news.....

by Anonymousreply 7512/15/2017

I have no doubt that people who have seriously restricted carbs have seen improvements in their health and weight loss. R66 's own link starts off by saying it is refined processed carbs that put your health at risk. So it isn't a low carb diet that worked. It was a diet low in processed and/or refined carbs that worked.

by Anonymousreply 7612/17/2017

Sure R76. 🙄

So far, the zero dairy is really working for me. I have no stomach issues and my skin is very clear.

Ice cream is my poison, and it really gets me. But when I don't eat it. I feel great. Which is why I'm cutting back on it drastically. Less and less for me.

R67 Yes, she stopped eating altogether for a few weeks before coming back to her sense, or in french "faire de l'anorexie", I don't know what verb to use with anorexia, sorry about that. How would you describe somebody who stop eating? On the tv channel France 5 we had a documentary about cattle and some of my friends decided to stop dairies after watching it, nobody seems important to check with their doctor first, and "everybody does osteoporosis anyway!" I think some of my friends are cunts sometimes. I just hope they don't get their kids in their shit, they are young and have not finished growing up.
