  Benefits to a dairy free diet  

Eat junk and you will become junk, eat healthy and you will become healthy

There is no doubt that a dairy free diet will not only help you to shed the pounds but will also pave the wave for new health conscious trends.

Gone are the days of ‘funny looks’ and ‘odd comments’ for upholding a dairy free lifestyle and in are the positive aspects associated with it.

Many have found that within weeks of cutting out dairy from their diet, symptoms such as anxiety, nausea and stress have decreased. In return, these feelings have been replaced with better sleeping patterns and increased energy levels. Others have found that weight which was difficult to shed just falls away with no effort at all. On top of this sodium levels in the bloodstream reduce as do cholesterol and in many cases, blood returns to normal pressure.

Children can also benefit from a dairy free diet as tests prove that foods without dairy products can help to significantly reduce or even stop hyperactivity and autism. Whilst monitoring their children, many parents took a ten day ten challenge to see if their behavior improved with a non dairy diet.
After the results, many families gave up milk permanently.

A dairy free diet is now proving to be one of the most effective ways to dramatically improve the health. As more and more people start to see the positive benefits of this easy to follow diet, the advantages will far outweigh the slight tweaks which need to be implemented. For some people, becoming dairyfree will actually prevent a disease from occurring hence prolonging life which could have been shortened with cow’s milk.

We are all unique individuals and although we share many common traits, we all react differently to changes in our diet. This means that although your sister may watch the weight falling away with a dairy free diet, you may enjoy increased muscle mass and a firmer physique.

It can take just ten days for people to start noticing the benefits of a non-dairy diet so why not make a conscious decision to eliminate cow’s milk for ten days and see how much it could benefit you.


Will a dairy free diet turn my world upside down?
Firstly, you need to ask yourself if you are ready for the following:

1. Denying yourself the satisfaction of eating foods which have been a significant part of your life
    for many years?
2. Having the stamina and willpower to stick to a dairy free diet no matter how much you are
    persuaded or tempted otherwise?
3. Preparing in advance for a non dairy diet.
4. Cooking meals from dairy free recipes or buying specially prepared foods?

Some tips for making the ten day challenge a ‘walk in the park’ is to choose a time when you will not be expected to enjoy family gatherings or a meal out with friends. You may also want to limit your travel time as it is easy to reach for a quick cheese sandwich or chocolate bar when on the go.


The proof is in the pudding:
Celebrities focus highly on physical appearance and many have paid homage to a dairy free diet as an easy way to improve health and lose weight without the stress of a calorie controlled diet. Take the ten day challenge and very soon you will start looking at fresh fruits, whole grains, vegetables and beans in a different light. You will also enjoy the floods of compliments which come your way as people notice your new slim line figure, positive mood and outward glow.

The dairy free diet and its effects on breastfeeding
Foods to avoid and embrace when following a breastfeeding dairy free diet
A crying baby automatically triggers a response from mother to change a soiled nappy, prepare for a feed or help soothe away those baby blues but what happens when all of these attempts at drying the tears are in vain?

There are many reasons why a baby will cry throughout the day and night and in many instances, this is just a small downside to having a beautiful new addition to the family. However, if baby appears to be distressed for prolonged periods of time or if you notice a pattern of consistent crying shortly after breastfeeding, this could be an indication of possible milk protein sensitivity.
Breastfeeding is the most natural and beneficial way to feed your baby. A good way to check if the dairy milk you are consuming is upsetting your baby is to eliminate it from your diet for at least two weeks. If after a dairy free diet baby settles down…milk protein sensitivity could be playing with your baby’s digestive system.

Although it may seem easier to revert to formula milk rather than turn your daily diet upside down, eliminating dairy from your everyday routine is not as complicated as it may seem.

Living the dairy free life:

When you embark upon a dairy free diet, the prospect of having to cut out so many foods can seem overwhelming. However, in today’s modern world eliminating dairy can be easier than you think.

One tip is to become clued up on the many different ways that milk can disguise itself within food ingredients.

The following list is an example of how milk can slip into the diet, so keep an eye out for these ingredients:

• Acidophilus milk
• Casein
• Caseinate
• Curds
• Galactose
• Ghee
• Lactalbumin
• Lactate
• Lactic acid
• Lactoglobulin
• Lactose
• Malted milk
• Nougat
• Potassium caseinate
• Rennet
• Sodium caseinate
• Whey

By recognising these hidden milk guises, it will become quicker and easier to stop ingesting milk products and flush them out of your breast milk. Then you can look forward to some much needed peace and quiet.

When you embark upon a dairy free diet, it is likely that you will make the odd mistake or succumb to the tempting advances of chocolate. These mishaps can easily be rectified by using a breast pump to reduce the concentration of milk protein which is being passed to baby.

When breastfeeding, your baby is what you eat so talk to your doctor or paediatrician and you will soon discover that a dairy free diet will not only keep baby gurgling and cooing but will also help you to gain your figure back at the same time!
