I don’t know about all of you, but when I was younger we always had milk or some sort of dairy in the house. “Milk is good for bones and teeth etc etc” mom used to say. Well, as I’ve gotten older and wiser, milk, at least in my opinion has been WORSE for my body than good for it. Milk and dairy from my experience has caused me bloating and sometimes an upset stomach, along with an unnecessary amount of sugar or “lactose.” I still am amazed when talking to someone when they tell me what they are eating during the day and they are drinking tons of milk, wondering why they aren’t dropping a significant amount more weight than they have been. People are often so misconstrued about milk and how we need it to fight osteoporosis and have strong healthy bones. HERE’S SOME NEWS. Asian countries, who drink little to NO milk at all, have less osteoporosis rates than Americans who drink a TON of milk. Amazed? Don’t be. Asian countries load up on their green veggies like Kale, packing a ton of calcium and other nutrients that are much better than the ol’ milk and dairy. So to keep it simple, try making small changes in regards to dairy products. Your body and gut will thank you in the long run.
