Regarding previous post on Cellulite...msg

Posted by Rachel on May 03, 2002 at 13:13:33:

Hi Everyone and Thanks for your responses regarding my question on cellulite a few days ago.
I have decided that I am going to try to go dairy free for the next few months to see is there is any positive impact on my cellulite. Since I have been such a fan of dairy for my whole life, I guess what my struggle would be is what to do in place of dairy to still get the calcium my body requires without having milk, yogurt, etc...We hope to get pregnant sometime in the near future and that too, I want to be sure that when the time comes, my body is getting the needed nutrients so that my baby is getting what he/she needs to be healthy in my womb. So I guess for short term, what kinds of foods/supplements would be good for me to take while being dairy free and what about products that are not 100% dairy but have it in there such as chocolate, etc..? Hoping I can be strong enough to stick with this but as i mentioned, since I am such a picky eater, dairy was always a sure thing for me.
Thanks!

Hi, Rachel.

There are lots of supplements out there that are dairy-free, I'm sure. The ones I use have one with whey protein and one completely vegan using soy protein. I was taking prenatal vitamins before and this works much better without the nausea. Definitely go with something complete rather than trying to take everything individually. Sooner or later you'll not be getting the right balance. I've got three kids of my own plus a daycare. E-mail if you'd like.



Another myth bites the dust!

You weren't getting much calcium as it was...

Walt has often spoken about what a BAD source of calcium diary really is. Please look in the archives for discussions about this. There are vegetables and supplements that will deliver much more calcium that your body can actually use as opposed to that in dairy.

It's not that there is no calcium in diary, but the ratio of phosphorous to calcium is such that your body just can't USE the calcium that's there. So, there is no reason to worry about the calcium as far as you quitting dairy.

Also Walt highly recommends a book called Every Woman's Book by Paavo Airiola (sp?) for those who want to get pregnant.

Good luck! Life's an experiment!

Rachel.

A "few months" will not do it! The 6 months mentioned frequently will not produce the full effect but will be obvious enough to prove to the person that they are on the right track. It might take as long as 2 years for total elimination.

Finally nothing but TOTAL elimination will work. You have to read every lable and avoid any traces of dairy.

All of this is fully discussed under milk.

Let us know how you do.

If you ever come up with a simpler, or more effective, way to do this I would be eager to know about it.

Thanks, Cheezi.

I hope you know that the "whey protein" one is from dairy.
