    It seems to be that it causes problems for some people because of it's suger content and some people tend to stall during weightloss when consuming it.

    Side note:
    Is lactose free milk heavily processed and bad for you?

      The fat is fine.
      The carb is difficult for many, easy for some to digest. It is mostly fermentable though, so you could go for the fermented dairy and be ok if you have difficulty digesting lactose.
      The protein is the trickiest because it's not as easy to ferment. If you have difficulty digesting it, like many do, you shouldn't have much dairy except butter or ghee.

        I had serious digestive trouble with dairy for years... then tried raw.
        Raw dairy is not a problem for me at all, whereas standard pasteurized/homogenized milk was a big problem.
        So I use some raw milk, and 10-15% fat content greek style yogurt and a occasionally little cheese for fermented dairy.

        Some people have more trouble with the digestion of it than others... thus the reason some people feel the need to remove it from their diet completely... or for weight loss.
        Others avoid it because of the carb count if they are aiming for Low or VL carb numbers for weight loss.

          Cow's dairy is problematic for me, whereas goat's/sheep's isn't due to differences in the caesin.

          The sugar is not a problem at all as far as I'm concerned, as it is fructose free.

            I've always wondered about dairy as well. I don't trust it because it's made to super-grow a calf. Will this do the sams to humans and let us age faster?
            well then

                Nothing wrong with fructose.

                  I'd never thought of the carbs in milk. Ack!

                    Greetings

                    A short, informative series on milk: Devil in the Milk. Again, it appears that the problem is not generally with the milk... But, yes, you've guessed it, with industrial processing.

                    peace
                    All the best!

                      People say to drink full fat milk instead of skim/2% because the sugar/carb content is higher when there's less fat.
                      I checked the back of the cartons. Theres a 1 gram difference in carbs between the 2% and whole milk. BFD(BigFarkinDeal)

                      Or is it that your body processes it differently?

                        So how about heavy whipping cream? It's 100% fat.
