I am not a nutrtionist, so I will elave the explaination to someone who is. I feel less headachey when I combine them. Pure carb meals aren't something I do.

I also feel a bit fuller longer with some protein & fats.

I also find that my children seem to be more even-keeled when they have a good delping of protein and not just pure carbs.

My suggestion would be to give up some, but not all, dairy products and see if that makes a difference in how you feel. I think it's hard to make dramatic changes and keep at them. Moderation is a good thing, though this board kinda scares me sometimes because it has such an all-or-nothing tone to it.

I feel a lot better since I no longer drink cow's milk. I do occasionally have cheese and very very occasionally have some ice cream or butter. Since stopping the cow's milk, I no longer get canker sores or bad acne which used to bother me.

I use soy milk in cooking, and Rice Dream on my cereal (and I think it tastes really good!). It takes some time to get used to dairy alternatives, but some of them are good once you adjust to the taste. I haven't gotten on the bandwagon as far as anti-soy, because I haven't noticed any problems in how it makes me feel.
