Those were the seven things that would suit the personality of an individual, facing the problem of what is known as "lactose intolerance or allergy".
According to a research, there are majorly four reasons behind the strict dairy-free diet, and always advisable to have a solid reason behind it. Firstly, the person is lactose intolerant or has some sort of allergy; secondly, it is an easy way to lose weight, thirdly, stomach discomfort or lastly some sort of moral agenda. In general, the most obvious reason for people opting dairy-free diet is the problem of lactose intolerance or allergy.
Commonly called as ‘dairy allergy’ or ‘lactose intolerance’, they are not exactly same, but yes, both are related to avoiding dairy products and milk. When we say lactose intolerance, it relates to the situation where the person simply lacks enough of the lactase enzyme needed to properly break down lactose, a sugar found in milk. The problem leads to stomach discomfort.
While dairy allergy refers to the situation, where the person is allergic to protein casein found in milk and cheese products and can lead to many health issues.
Yes, all dairy-free products are not same in taste and treatment. However, you need to equip your body with such taste jerks before you give up.
We are so used to dairy products in form of egg, curd and cheese in every meal that imagining any meal without them is non-happening. But don’t worry; it’s just a matter of the state of mind.
Once you make your mind about it, nothing could be impossible.
When you actually say no to dairy products, you are actually cutting down on the daily dose of calcium content. So in order to cover-up the loss, you need to look for natural alternatives in form of fruits, veggies or supplements.
The lactose intolerant people don`t produce enough lactase, an enzyme that is responsible for breaking down lactose found in milk products. So, when you stop consuming milk products the reason for uneasiness is diminished automatically.
Once you are through the addiction towards ice cream and yogurt, after a few months you will realise that there is no more craving for them. It is all about developing a good habit of avoiding something that has lost its quality over a period of time, all thanks to (dairy) technology.
When it comes to following a diet, it comes with a disclaimer called ‘cheat days’. The same rule applies in case of dairy-free diet too. It is good to be rigid in terms of health, but being a bit flexible makes it easy for survival in the modern lifestyle.
