I love milk! As a child I hated soft drink and would have milk instead. I remember going to Sizzler and my siblings would get soft drink and I would get milk from the coffee machine. The past year I have limited myself to low fat milk (it just isn’t the same as full cream) but in my research on controlling PCOS naturally I’ve seen a few things on going dairy free helping. There are hormones in dairy products which when they get into our bodies can worsen our already mucked up hormone problems.
I was very resistant to this. I have read somewhere that women that drink milk whether it is full cream or light are on average a healthier body weight than those that don’t. This is the kind of thing I have been telling myself.
However, I decided that I would give it a go. I started just not having glasses of milk and drinking more water. Now I have changed to almond milk for my muesli in the morning. I’ve cut right back on cheese except occasionally feta in a salad. I’ve also started to get organic milk for my husband and also for when I want a cup of tea. Almond milk is fine in my muesli… I think it blends in well because there are already a lot of nuts in the muesli, but it is awful in tea. Too nutty! So at the moment the only dairy I have is in my cups of tea and that is organic milk.
I’m liking my spearmint tea more and more, which is a blessing. Acne is still going really good. I have been really naughty with my low GI eating because of Valentine’s day and birthday parties. But I think it is good to enjoy those things and not be overly strict otherwise I would be miserable. My sister gave me a box of chocolates last night and they have been staring me down 😦 I’ll wait for my hubby to get home later before opening them because he will eat most of them and that way I’ll eat less. I have 3-4 black chin hairs that have been growing back really quickly but no new ones have developed. I’m lucky that I’m fair as my face is hairy but so light only I notice it.
Hope you all were spoiled as I was for Valentine’s Day!
