    I cut gluten and casein completely from my diet. If I had a choice to resort back to one particular dairy product I would go for raw milk, especially raw goat's milk.

    well after eating cheddar cheese today and getting bloated from it... (boo)... I'm thinking i'm going to try cutting it out... I only drink milk in coffee. Yogurt and cottage cheese don't bother me (at least I think)... regular cheese and milk/cream do.

    Dairy is my nemesis. Ok Dairy and wine.

    Dairy definitely makes me feel bloated and has some effect on my weight loss/gain. I am pretty sure it has some inflammatory effects on me as well. I try to avoid it on a regular basis like in heavy cream on coffee, or as mundane cheeses. But in the right circumstances, I will stoically endure the consequences of good real very stinky cheese as long as the cheese quality is worth them.

    I eat pastured butter and ghee only. Coconut milk has been a successful substitute for me. (the more wine I drink, the more I lose, as I will tend to drink instead of eat. Oops!)

    I should also add that while I don't *believe* other species dairy is biologically appropriate for us, I find it absolutely delicious.

    For the 10+ years that I considered myself dairy free, I did drink cream in my coffee every day and cook, when possible, with butter. Some definitition of dairy free. lol No milk though, no cheese, no yogurt.

    When I finally adopted primal in earnest (oh, the importance of being earnest lol) I started eating dairy as a way to easy my transition away from the addictive grains and sugar. It worked.

    Two weeks ago, after getting back my last bloodwork, which showed that my c reactive protein was again very elevated (damn!), I moved away from dairy again except for the rare coffee that I purchase while out (once a week? less?). No yogurt or milk for me and like Serial Sinner, the rare cheese in which I indulge must be without a doubt worth it in order to endure the inflammatory side effects. That indulgence is very rare indeed.

    Now wine on the other hand......

    Hey cillakat. I don't know much about inflammations from dairy and also, the c reactive protein being elevated, can you tell me a bit about that and how much does the test cost?

    Thanks

    I still haven't tried kerrygold, too much $$. But, you'll be happy to know I switched from Organic Valley and now buy cheaper, local butter. No more supporting corrupt companies

    Cillakat,

    What do you consider an elevated CRP? I have read from reliable sources that milk is not inflammatory. I use a lot of dairy (raw) and mine was less than .2 which I think is low. I have a physical tomorrow, I'll see what the doc has to say. I would love to hear your thoughts.
