I printed out your post and put it in my reference folder for INSPIRATION! I know what you speak of is true with the dairy and cheese - even if I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around it right now.
Over the past 6 weeks to 10 years, I've systematically kicked out (or DRASTICALLY reduced to occasional) stuff that seemed incredibly impossible to do without - candy, coffee (too many cigs with it), MAYONNAISE (I used to gross out people in delis who made my sandwiches), white flour/pasta, ice cream, most recently cigs and alcohol (as much in the last 6 weeks as I used to have between 6 pm and 8 pm - on my way downstairs for another drink).
I've been blessed with a high metabolism and a passion for the gym, or I'd have had to take a chain saw to my doorways - not to mention looking "rode hard and put up wet" way before my time.
And like you - I can't stand sodas or juices (unless freshly squeezed) either. So I KNOW I will learn how to survive without milk in the morning and cheese....everywhere! And your story and experience underlines that it is possible to enjoy cheese periodically - instead of....oh, AS a meal! Soon all I'll have left to drink is water - thank heavens I love the stuff....
But tell me, squeaky. You're a gourmet - AND health conscious AND apparently quite knowledgeable about the scientific aspects of food. How do you balance what you eat? I mean, WHAT do you eat? How do you manage to be a gourmet, when dairy produces mucus, meat rots in your stomach, white flour is bad for the system.....etc etc. Elucidate, please!
In fact, why not start a whole new thread for it - I bet there's a TON of people here who could very well be interested in your answer to that question! THANKS!
