Lactose intolerant help



Recommended Posts

Well.....I have become lactose intolerant. I tried to deny it but I can't anymore. So...I need suggestions for non dairy Protein. I used cheeses and cottage cheese for a lot of my protein aside from meat. Now I feel lost. Milk is in most everything. Thank you.

You can use Lactaid brand products. They make milk, cottage cheese, and a host of other products. They also make lactaid tablets that you can use before you eat anything with lactose in it.

I use lactaid milk now, exclusively. I don't have any problems with cheese, only milk.

Hope this helps.

After RNY surgery, I became lactose intolerant. A couple months later that problem disappeared and I could once again drink milk. The most important detriment to lactose intolerance lies in Protein shakes. Some contain lactose but fortunately many do not. It is important to select Protein Shakes that are lactose free.

I've been lactose intolerant since birth. I stick to almond milk or soy if almond isn't available. And in the case that something may have lactose in it, there are lactaid pills which help a lot.

I've been lactose intolerant for about ten years. I tried the Lactaid milk and still had problems. However, since finding out about Fairlife Milk, I'm enjoying it again. And it has something like 13 grams of Protein in a serving and less sugar than comparable milks. I love it! And my NUT approved the 2% chocolate milk for an occasional treat.

Lol. Funny thing. I hadn't had a BM for 5 days so I thought I would have some sour cream so my lactose intolerance would "empty me out". Well unfortunately or fortunately I may no longer be lactose intolerant because it didn't effect me. Lol
