Replacing dairy in our diet is a lot harder than it might sound. It means avoiding not only milk, cheese, and yogurt, it also means steering clear of unexpected foods like energy bars and dairy based baked goods.

More than 35 million Americans are lactose intolerant. If you are among this population, you lack enough enzymes that help digest lactose, the sugar in dairy products. As a result, lactose remains undigested in the stomach. The unpleasant results of undigested lactose include diarrhea, gas, and cramping.

There are also a variety of other social and ethical benefits of a dairy-free diet. These include:  politics (animal welfare), simplicity (eating natural foods like fruits and vegetables), and weight loss.

Better Health

If you have lactose intolerance, you are going to feel a whole lot better by removing dairy from your diet. You’ll experience less gas and likelihood of weight loss. If you suffer from stomachaches, heartburn or headaches, going dairy free with your diet may be necessary to resolve these ailments.

Moreover, the sugar in dairy products causes the body to release insulin-like growth factor, which triggers inflammation and breaks down collagen and elastin, resulting in diabetes.
