    Thanks for replies - basically I love dairy esp heavy cream, I pour it over fruit, make fresh butter with it or whip some melted 85% chocolate into it for an especially rich chocolate mousse, but like kiwigal I just seem to feel generally better when I'm not eating it, its become the only dietary challenge / food-without-brakes for me since I went primal.

    I don't think I'll cut it out completely - fine as a treat IMO, but just thought I'd ask for views.

    I dare you to try heavy cream over ripe banana and not become addicted :-)

    I just spent three weeks eating a half-gallon of full-fat greek yogurt every day. I went one day without it and am already over the cravings. But, yes, that one day was a day I REALLY wanted my yogurt! Now I'm fine, woke up, ate eight eggs and had my coffee, doing things around the house and not craving the gurty gurt. So IME if you can make it past the initial "want it" phase, you'll easily hit the "don't need it" phase.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I love fermented dairy. When I did the no dairy stints, for texture/little bowl food substitutes I used nuts or nut butters with salt and cocoa nibs, or berries 'smoothied' with egg whites or mug cakes from egg whites and bananas. Home-made jellos (lime and stevia or fruit juices) are also a good sub for me. Finally, I love kisel' - hot fruit juice (cranberry, blackberry or blueberry) heated up with tapioca starch to thicken it. You can let it cool (I like it hot in the winter) and if there is enough starch (~ 1 tbsp per cup of drink) it makes for a pleasant, dairy-like texture. Well, for *me*. I have Eastern European taste-buds.

    But I found that it was eggs, not dairy that impact me badly (joint pain), so now I eat dairy to my heart's content and no eggs.

    LOL.

    That's a pretty good trade!

    Ever since I started buying grass-fed milk I've been hooked. I can give up all dairy and keep that and I'd be happy.

    This was me as well for the last 2 months - also pouring cream into the yoghurt, or adding in some wild fruit preserve I made earlier this year. The wild fruit preserve + full fat greek yoghurt is simply superb, especially as there's only the natural sugars, no added, and I prefer it this way immensely now.

    I've been having kefir this last week (a small amount each day) and this seems to have reduced my dairy desires quite well.
