Dairy and LS

Cutting out dairy is not the answer for some people. Dairy foods rich in calcium and vitamin D such as yoghurt and nuts are  compulsory for people at risk or who have osteoporosis. Also oily fish and cereals. I am a fitness professional so I know what to eat and what not to eat. Vegestables such as broccolie sprouts and cauliflower also have the relevant nutrients for this group of people. Cutting out dairy is a total no no.

    I agree with everyone's posts. Unless you have a food intolerance or specific allergies then you probably don't need to be cutting out entire food groups.

    In saying that I've been wanting to give the auto immune diet a go. It's just so restrictive and I'm already underweight. In fact I've been trying to put on weight. Always been thin but my current BMI is quite low. I wonder if this could be related to thyroid? I had my TSH checked and it was on the low side. My GP doesn't do the whole thyroid panel test which I think is ridiculous as TSH isn't the best indicator right? Got a feeling I'm bordering hyperthyroidism if not already there.

    Renee - I love bone broth. All types of broth in fact. So good for healing the gut.

      I agree that unless there is an intolerance, people should enjoy a balanced diet and avoid processed foods where possible. It always amazes me that something sat in a fridge which should have gone off, now lasts a lot longer because of all these extra preservatives the manufacturer puts in for a longer shelf life. I prefer to buy foods which go off quickly so should be eaten within a couple of days. Dani I agree that sounds like a thyroid problem unless you are burning off more calories than you are taking in. I would plug your doctor for the test and tell him it is not good for you to be so thin. I know I keep banging on about osteoporosis because it is a high risk factor in our family, but thin people are susceptible to it. One of the theories which came up during a course I was on is because fatter people are putting more stress on their bones when they walk, (as this puts calcium on bones that's why aerobics or exercise where there is impact is good for bones providing the joints are ok). So go back to your GP. Think there are other symptoms such as low energy and tiredness linked to thyroid problems, so you have to see the bigger picture, only you knows what you eat and what you burn off. Good luck.

      Yes, that is what the bone broth and the anti-inflammatory diet is all about...healing the gut...so that our body can return to normal.  I'll let you know how I get on with the diet. I'm hopeful!

      wishing you loads of luck with this renee. I 've also been brewing up bone broth which takes several days. I sip it as medicinal but also use it as the basis for soups and stews...thing is then I do get through it rather quickly!

      I agree with all that its a lot to do with whats added to our food..so am avoiding processed including dairy which is almost an industrialised product now with the poor cows being so confined. Yet here in the UK they do eat grass and have more freedom...but somehow we need to resist the way things are going in the US I feel ...out of compassion but have no wish to upset anyone. Have I upset anyone?

    I lost my throid to cancer twenty years ago, but with synthroid my endo doctor keeps my levels good.  I think this is very important.  Get more checks on your thyroid if your doctor does not do it, get another doctor.   I agree with the food wisdom, we each have to find what works for us.  I use lactose free milk now since my daughter's doctor put her on it and we are very much alike.  We are also very sensitive, a bad reaction in our body or our skin, to things like cleaning products, air quality,and other environmental factors.  Check these things out for you also.  Good luck, and I am eating my yogurt!  My bones are checked often, I am tall and do not want to have problems there.  I use the lactose free milk and do not see any LS reaction.
