So the benefits of fasting (as I believe) mainly begin when your body has fully digested and has the chance to "Rebuild, Recover, etc". So would having some kind of casein protein (milk or similar) right before beginning a fast DELAY the benefits... (more)
The easy solution would be to buy grass-fed raw milk. However, if we make yogurt using pasteurized, homogenized milk, are there any risks associated with this? (Oxidized cholesterol, denatured proteins...etc etc).
I'm new to the Paleo diet and at the stage of being ready to test new foods. I already know I can't have milk because I've previously been on a milk and gluten-free diet and tested these things. I don't have a lactose intolerance which means it's... (more)
I just discovered Heavy Whipping Cream and I am in love. I would like to mix it with water to make a psuedo-Milk without the Lactose, Casein and various other issues that cause problems with dairy. Does anyone know how much lactose or casein is... (more)
Ghee is very oily tasting but works okay in some GFCF recipes. It just doesn't cut it as a coating on bread...does grass fed butter have less casein? We can't do earth's balance because of corn ingredient..any suggestions that give one that... (more)
I need a refresher, because I thought cheese I was perfectly safe until just now. Also, please give me some advice on butters and yogurts, like greek yogurts. I have found that lactose and casein explode my acne production so I want to stay away... (more)
Cream and butter. With ghee being an even cleaner version of butter...
I quote; There are two main forms of the important cow's milk protein beta-casein found in the cow's milk that you drink. These two forms are known as A1 and A2 beta-casein. The A2 form of beta-casein has been identified by scientific research... (more)
This is an offshoot question inspired by this thread. There are times when I can eat anything and not feel satisfied until I drink some milk. By what mechanism could milk uniquely satisfy hunger? EDIT: I'm now convinced that these cravings... (more)
I don't crave milk. I deny the validity of your premise. :)
I live in NC. I have just discovered raw milk is illegal here for dairy farmers to sell for human consumption. After reading about the power politics behind this absurd state ban (and the only ban) on human food, I'm fixing to ditch entirely my... (more)
What's interesting is that prior to the 30-day elimination I only rarely ate dairy because I thought I had lactose intolerance (gas, bloating) to ricotta, softer cheeses, and diarrhea to milk. Lactaid would eliminate these symptoms when I ate ice... (more)
I've been thinking about adding fermented vegetables to our diet. The WAPF folk seem very keen on lacto-fermentation, and I've been considering that. Our last chick in the nest, my 16-year-old son, loves milk, cheese and yogurt, and I was... (more)
I have recently cut out dairy to see if that will help my chronic nasal congestion/drip. So far, it seems to be slowly clearing up. I'm going to miss cheese (I make one helluva primal lasagna using spaghetti squash), although I've found coconut... (more)
Hullo! :) I'm a desperate woman. I miss yoghurt something fierce (and yes, I know it's not Paleo, but this is a recurrent craving that I'm having trouble ignoring as it has been nagging me for literally years), and I would love to figure out why... (more)
Casein often gets a bad rap as a carcinogen however I could never find a source that was anything other than The China Study. Chris Masterjohn pokes some pretty hefty holes in the casein studies of Dr Campbell so his research on his own doesn't... (more)
Given that it doesn't give any digestion problems, how about drinking Lactaid (100% lactose free) milk to get some calories? I am consistently losing weight (and strength) and I want to get back my PRs and gain some weight..
I was recently tested by Enterolab and was positive for casein intolerance. I've been a dairy eater for 44+ years, so this is quite new for me. I'm curious whether others who are casein intolerant by testing are able to tolerate cream and... (more)
I???ve noticed that many Paleo/LC folks who include some dairy in their diets often use Greek/strained yogurt. I strain my grass-fed full fat yogurt and find it is so creamy and rich it is delicious plain w/o added sweetener or fruit. I read... (more)
Cows produce one of two forms of beta casein depending on their genetics: A1 or A2. The A1 mutation occurred relatively recently in human history-- all other species of mammal have casein that is more similar to A2 casein. The problem is that A1... (more)
I recently went to a naturopath doctor for a blood and saliva test. He has me on test and progesterone to help regain my cycle and my adrenal were worn therefore he has me on adrenamax. I wanted to state this as I am unsure if my stress level is... (more)
I've been VLC paleo for half a year now, but haven't managed 100% compliance for more than a month or so. Some items that I tend to let slip in: Diet soda (artificial sweeteners) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (pure sugar) A slice of birthday cake... (more)
I was under the impression that Martin Berkhan of Leangains.com recommends casein powder as the protein powder of choice. I had followed that but I am not sure of the repercussions. What are the problems with casein and does whey protein not... (more)
Obviously, lactose and casein are components of milk. I'm curious how much lactose and casein remains in products derived from milk such as: heavy cream, butter, and cheese? If somebody could provide a basic chart or list that would be awesome. (more)
