I rarely have dairy. I have always loved it. Growing up I use to drink more than a gallon of milk a day. During my junior year in college, I came back from a run and realized that I didn’t feel sick. That’s weird, normally I feel sick after each of my runs, I’ve even puked on the football practice field during warm ups. How come today is different? I feel great! So the next day I was back to my normal self. My stomach felt awful and I realized that I have been feeling like this for a long time. I didn’t even remember when it started. So what did I do or didn’t do yesterday that was different from any of these other days? Well I got up and I had my shake and I went for a run. Hang on. We were out of milk yesterday. I used water in my shake. Don’t tell me that I am lactose intolerant.
Over the course of the next 3 days I went without milk and noticed a huge difference. I felt great. On the 4th day I drank milk and immediately felt awful. With that figured out I knew what I had to do and I wasn’t very happy about it. I stopped drinking milk but I did continue with other dairy products but just not as frequently. Could I really give up Ice Cream, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Pizza? Nope. I still would get sick from these things but it was not every day.
When I went through my transformation I decided to remove almost all dairy because I noticed that when I have any kind of dairy I develop mucus in my throat. I had tried raw milk and did not develop mucus when I drank it. Mucus is a sign of inflammation. When you have inflammation one of the bodies responses is to produce mucus to get rid of it. So in my case, “Milk Does A Body Mucus”.
