    I am curious. I understand why we cant have milk because of the sugar that it contains, but unsweetened coconut milk doesnt. i am reading where that is still to be limited. WHY?

    also I have also seen that powdered milks..in all forms doesnt contain sugar at all.
    So again..why is it we cant have milk?

    i guess I missed the explanation on this and I havent read it anywhere in the forum.

    thanks for any explanation as to why… & I am NOT lactose intolerant BTW…

    I believe that lactose is a milk sugar. We’re avoiding sugar on the diet, therefore avoiding lactose would also be a good idea. If you can find an organic milk low in lactose, that might be OK in moderation. I actually use organic cow’s milk to make kefir yoghurt and haven’t noticed any reaction to it, although I think the fermentation period allows the bacteria to consume all the sugar present in the milk, though I could be wrong on this.

    If I’m not mistaken, coconut milk is just coconut meat diluted mainly with h2o….sometimes other things as well and has low sugars.

    Powder milk does have lactose…

    Nonfat Dry Milk…..36% dv
    Dry Whole Milk……26.5% dv
    Dry Buttermilk……34% dv

    I have found unsweetened almond milk to be a great substitute for milk. I find it tastes pretty good, and it is available pretty cheap at costco, grocery stores and health food stores here in Canada, I’m not so sure about the States.

    Nestle makes a poweder milk that they advertise as “fat-free” – it’s also Lactose free. Tastes amazing.

    I’m confused about keffir made with milk (in the diet’s earlyish stages) – is the milk ok then bec it’s been fermented?
    Also, i’ve been making my own almond milk. You could make it with this too?

    Almonds can contain high amounts of mold, so you might not want to make almond milk until you’re further into treatment.

    Kefir is fine because the bacteria consume the majority of the lactose, plus the bacteria really benefit you by repopulating good gut flora.

    Hey thanks. Is it ok to make keffir with milk early on (like 2-3 weeks in), or should you try it with water first?

    I think there actually might be more sugar in water kefir than milk, because you feed water kefir straight sugar. Milk kefir has more benefits.

    Hey I may be wrong as it’s all new to me but we’ve found a milk called Oatly from Sweeden. It’s free from milk protien, lactose and Soya…and tastes great…our daughter now drinks it and there’s no reaction.
