Fat Loss & Dairy
If I don't have any bad reactions to dairy in general, but my goal is fat (not necessarily weight) loss, am I better off not having butter, heavy cream in my coffee, & some raw milk cheese? I understand the Primal view on dairy in general- I'm strictly asking about weight loss. Will it help me with my goals or would I be better without it? Or is it just something that depends on the person? I've been using grassfed butter the whole time I've been Primal, but I just recently added in heavy cream & cheese. Not a lot- just to get in some extra fat. I don't mind coconut or almond milk in my coffee if I should cut out the cream, but it's definitely not what I prefer.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Dairy is considered a growth promoter, and is quite insulinogenic, despite having a low GI rating. Generally, people run leaner if they cut out dairy items. In your case, I think some superbly high-fat cream and butter are totally okay, but when one starts venturing into the milk and even yogurt categories, issues may arise.
Self experiment? Consider the elimination diet technique.
Yeah, I've had full fat yogurt before & I think I'm gonna try some raw milk just to try it. Then I'll go from there. Thanks for the info.
