AGAINST DAIRY!

15 posts in this topic

For some strange reason i decided to switch to being a vegan after sufferin a year with acne, after only a few weeks my face had almost completely cleared up and therefore i could only assume dairy was the culprit. It's proven time and time again that every time i have some chocolate or something with milk in it, it's flared up again! even when quorn!!! quorn of all people started using milk protein in their deli slices and ham and roast... all of which i think quite a good few vegans and vegetarians like as part of our meal, can't have now because they've pointlessly added in milk protein. And in fact if you care to direct your eyes to the vegan society website, there's TONS of info on why we shouldn't even be consuming dairy in the first place, it's made purely for baby cows, stuffed fulla hormones, any farmer will tell you that the quality of milk is based on how many PUS CELLS are in the milk... i mean... it's disgusting when u research the whole dairy thing. Ok so this site maintains that Diet and acne are totally unrelated, and for some people that MAY be true, but i'd be willing to wager my life on the fact that almost everyone reading this that choose to trial cutting out dairy completely from their diet will notice a significant improvement! if not clear up altogether!!! JOIN WITH ME AND BEAT ACNE BY ELIMINATING DAIRY FROM YOUR DIET!!!!

For me it makes no difference. I must drink any where between 2-3 litres of milk, eat 200g-600g of yoghurt and atleast 250g of cottage cheese a day!! And some days I look phenominal, and on other days Terrible! Lucky me?

I've always found www.notmilk.com to be an interesting if not extremist view against milk but personally I find no problem w/ milk or stright Whey protein. I found the more I work out the more milk I drink and the better my face looks. I'm also putting on alot more Benzaclin + sitting out in the sun a bit so maybe that's it.

Went off dairy when I became a raw foodist, did nothing to affect my acne. Every now and again I will drink organic milk with no problems. I do think that all the hormones in regular milk is detrimental to the body.

Yeah I have pretty exactly experience as animegirle has. When I was on raw food diet, it had proved me that dairy didnt affect my acne. Now, I have dairy as part of my diet, it seems it doesnt affect my acne. I drink only raw organic milk or fermented milk (kefir). FYI, I still have acne. So, any of food could affect my acne that I didnt notice. I believe it has doing something with my liver.

In addition to what I said above...I am not saying dairy does not cause acne problems for some, there are food products that cause me major problems...but would be fine for others. I do believe in searching for the root cause! Good luck on your quest. :mrgreen:

:: what would you buy? ::

1 - the ugly colored and graved with bird shit all over it, but Porsche/Lamborgini shaped car what could take you like a jet plane?

2 - or the amazing static red colored shiny, with the green glow under the car but is shaped like a lame cube where old folks drive in?

[image removed by sigbot--see board rules] the same goes for acne and the girls who choose the guy's [image removed by sigbot--see board rules]

So what are you doing for calcium? I dont drink milk, so I was taking calcium supplements (like Tums) for a while, but I SUCK at remembering pills, vitamins, etc. so I stopped taking them. Food...I never forget to eat smile.gif...so what can I replace milk with for calcium?

milk doesn't contain all that much calcium anyway - no where near what's recommended - unless you drink something like 5 8-oz glasses per day.

I don't think any foods contain more than 20% of the recommended amount, so it's very, very hard to get 100% recommended calcium from food alone. Part of that is probably the fact that by the time inadequate calcium intake becomes an issue, we're older (in other words past 'breeding age') - so evolution never really would have completely solved this problem.
