I'm trying to quit drinking coffee.<br><br>
I bought instant coffee to help with this - because I cannot brew only one cup of coffee. This way I have to make each cup.<br><br>
It has helped because I'm sort of lazy and I don't like instant as much.....<br><br>
well - until I bought Almond Milk (Cutting out dairy as well).<br><br>
So, I just realized that -<br><br>
I like Almond Milk and instant coffee because it tastes like a soy latte.<br><br>
I like Soy Latte's because they taste like real whole cow's milk lattes.<br><br>
I can't drink real whole cow's milk lattes because .....well....they make me fart.............................................. .................................................. ......................a lot.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

<div style="font-style:italic;">Lactose intolerance. Can you have cheese? I can't have cows milk without some stomach upset, but I can handle cheese.</div>

The enzymes.<br><br>
I also can drink choco milk much easier than I can drink regular. Its how the cocoa digests the lactose.<br><br>
I'm quite lactosintolerant myself.<br>

Definately lactose intolerance!<br><br>
I went back to one day having cows milk (half and half) in my coffee - and instantly got a stomach ache and bloated - that's one Tablespoon of cream <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Cheese seems to do the same thing now - I had cheese yesterday - and man oh man - my gas is unbelieveable. I'm sorry this is so gross....<br><br>
My mom said she weaned me at 6mos because I was "allergic" to her milk. But that she couldn't put me on regular formula either - she found some soy or whey that worked. I suppose this was because I was really allergic to cows milk - and allergic to the cows milk she was drinking.<br><br>
But when I got pg I craved cows milk - both times. But now that is weaning himself and nursing less and less - suddenly this intolerance is back and with a vengence.<br><br>
Back to the no dairy for me. I suppose it's not so bad. I really am enjoying the almond milk.

bullfrog,<br><br>
I'm the same way w/cow's milk. Although I also feel very lethargic and heavy, get headaches, and my nose does not stop running. I'd have these lil' old tissue colonies on the side of my bed when I woke in the morning.<br><br>
I can tolerate goat's milk no problem. I get raw goat milk from a local farm and make lots of yogurt and eat cheese and goat butter and have no problem. I hope this will be your experience as well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

This has been exactly my experience. I haven't really liked milk for as long as I can remember and since high school the idea of downing a glass of milk makes me want to gag. During both my pregnancies, though, I drank at least a glass of milk each day and I loved it. I looked forward to lunch each day because of the total satisfaction of downing a fried egg sandwich with a tall glass of milk. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Shortly after my babes were born I made the switch back to not liking milk.<br><br>
I've recently found out that I really don't handle milk well. Not sure if it's lactose intolerance or not, but I'm only bothered by milk itself not cheese yogurt, etc. The only difference it's made to me is that I now have rice milk on my cereal and non-dairy creamer in my coffee.<br><br>
As a side note, I've also found out that I can't have wheat. Now there's a much harder food to eliminate, but I feel so much better now!
