    No, not so much.

    If you can't drink real milk then try almond milk.

          Generally you want to avoid soy. It's not good stuff.

          If I had to choose between soy and cow milk... I'd pick cow.

                  coconut milk can be found in most major grocery stores. But, you're likely to find it in Asian markets

                    Soy has a lot of phyto-estrogens, which are chemicals that mimic estrogen in your body. It can really mess up your hormone balances, both male and female. Don't do it.

                      Yeah you want to avoid soy all together. If you cannot tolerate cow's milk you may want to give coconut or almond milk a try. Almost all the grocery stores in my area carry almond and coconut milk, so you don't necessarily have to go to a specialty store. Like Issanjose said, if you can't find coconut milk in the refrigerated area near all the other milks, you can try the Asian/Ethnic section and look for canned coconut milk.

                      People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                        You're not going to grow boobs from drinking soy milk once in a while. Studies in men have shown no marked effects in hormone balance. Do some research on this, the studies are there. Is it healthy? Not really, it doesn't help you, but it doesn't hurt to consume in moderation. I wouldn't drink a glass of soy milk every day but the reality is, it probably won't hurt you. Still, in terms of primal living, if you can tolerate milk, whole milk is way more beneficial than soy and there's really no good reason to ever replace anything with soy product.

                          If you want to try coconut milk or almond milk, many of the mainstream grocery stores are carrying it now. It's usually in either the refrigerated case or the health food aisle, but if you don't see it, keep looking.

                          Like anything else, make sure you compare labels before you buy.

                            Moderation is such a terrible word when it comes to diet.

                              who needs "milk"? you could easily just cut it out of your diet if you don't like your options. but i would definitely avoid soy"milk".
