Should You Go Dairy-Free Keto? Everything You Need To Know To Decide For Yourself — #092

by | Mar 15, 2019 | ketoforwomen

Why should you consider going dairy-free? And if you think you can’t go without it, what are your options to be the healthiest version of you while still consuming it? Take a listen and be informed as I share all that I know about dairy.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The history of dairy consumption and how it has evolved over the years
  • Pasteurization — why it’s being done and why it’s concerning
  • The health complications involving dairy consumption
  • The addictive effect of dairy
  • Lactose intolerance, dairy allergy, and dairy sensitivity
  • The benefits of raw pasture-raised dairy
  • Dairy alternatives and alternative sources of calcium

Key Takeaways:

  • Pasteurization is a process that involves putting the milk under high heat, which destroys enzymes and results in diminished vitamin content. It also kills beneficial bacteria and promotes pathogens.
  • In order to meet the demand for milk, cows are being treated with synthetic growth hormones that make them produce more milk than normal.
  • Milk consumption has been linked to health conditions such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, chronic infections like upper respiratory and ear infections, obesity, osteoporosis; cancer of the prostate, ovaries, breast, and colon; allergies, increased tooth decay, colic in infants, growth problems in children, and arthritis.
  • 65% to 75% of the world’s population is lactose intolerant.
  • Dairy sensitivities and, really, any food sensitivities primarily happen because of a leaky gut.

Action Steps:

  • Eliminate dairy for at least a month or two and start adding it back in, and notice how you feel.
  • Consume raw pasture-raised dairy.
  • Make sure to read the label when you purchase a new item.
  • If you decide to go dairy-free or you’re trying the elimination, make sure to check all the products that you’re using. Dairy can be present in your supplements, in your prescription medication, and even in packaged “real food”.

“It is 100% your choice if you want to consume dairy or not to consume dairy.  If you want to eliminate and bring it back in, it’s totally your call.”

“There are definitely some people who are relying on dairy that shouldn’t be… There a lot of women who see incredible changes for the better when they take out the dairy.”

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
