    The deal with dairy?

    Hey guys and girls - long time no see!
    After a time trekking in Portugal, in which i was practically fruitarian/vegan, i am now readjusting to a primal diet. My goal now is, ofcourse, to re-adapt my body to fat burning. In this regard im wondering about dairy. I've read that heavy cream is mildly insulinogenic while especially milk and cheese is very insulinogenic. Should i avoid all or some of these food items while i re-adapt to fat burning? The insulin spikes sounds kind of counterproductive afterall.

    Thanks!

    The more pressing reasons to avoid dairy are whether or not your body tolerates it, especially the lactose. Give it up for a month, add it back in to find out. The insulin spikes can be a useful tool in some situations.

    No one has all the answers for you.

    Thank you,
    I wasn't aware that my post implied that i needed someone to have all the answers for me though. I'll give a dairy free month a go. However, being northern european, i think im fairly safe on that front.

    Experiment is key, and yes, your genetic background plays a role. I do better on full fat yoghurt (which I love) than low fat, which I sometimes use after a work-out as the insuline spike then is beneficial.
