    Yogurt vs Milk

    Shop Now
    I read somewhere that while milk is problematic, yogurt (because it's fermented dairy) is OK?

    Is that the correct view, in your opinion? I'm still considering eliminating milk, but keeping yogurt in my diet.

    Thanks.

    You just gotta figure out what works for you. Personally, milk causes some problems for me, but I'm fine with yogurt, cheese, and whey.

    In my world Butter > Cream > Yoghurt > Milk. We let our kids have all of them, but only have butter and cream for ourselves.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Yogurt seems to be a lot less problematic in my opinion. Try and see which works better for you. Kefir is another good option.

    I eat butter, milk, sour cream, kefir/yogurt, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese. It really depends on the person. I thought I should cut dairy long before primal and had problems initially when I reintroduced dairy into my life, but I'm so glad I did. Dairy is delicious.

    I believe if you have zero problems with milk, don't cut it. Do you experience acne, congestion, etc.? If you do, try an elimination protocol. If you don't, why create new food intolerances?

    Precessed milk from sick cows is not the same thing as raw milk from healthy cows. Read Mark's recent dairy throw-down, it was prety good.
    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 read Mark's thing on dairy. To me, it sounded like he was backing off from what I perceived to be an anti-dairy stance.

    Well, Primal always did include dairy. If anything, the article seemed to scootch us from "moderation" to "enjoy without guilt within reason" territory.
