Day 2 of Whole30, feeling really good...am I probably going to want to give up dairy permanently?

Ok, so I started Whole30 yesterday. Since I was already Paleo/primal, the changes required of me have been mainly:

  • no dairy (i did use Kerrygold daily, grassfed cheese and heavy cream several servings per wk before)
  • making absolutely sure that there are no added sugars in the few non-homemade items I use - champagne-shallot mustard, for example, is left behind, as well as the dash of honey I'll sometimes add to a homemade salad dressing
  • making absolutely sure I avoid bad/seed oils - never use them at home, but would occasionally probably eat some when eating out
  • no dark chocolate - I didn't go crazy, but often had a small squares several times a week.

The biggest difference, I'm guessing is probably the dairy. I've never "gone without" to see how i feel. Ok, two days in and I feel different. More energy, more alert. I feel like my face is "brighter" somehow. And the scale is moving again.

I know it is too early to make assumptions, but if I continue on this track, does this mean that I'll probably want to leave dairy behind permanently? Would love to hear some personal experiences ;)

Yeah, cheese is the hardest for me...I only drink decaf coffee occasionally, so the cream isn't a biggie. Haven't dreamed of cheese yet.

Josh, I don't really drink milk...my dairy was pretty much different kinds of cheese (sometimes raw, sometimes not, but usually grass fed/organic), heavy cream (grassfed, organic, but no raw), and Kerrygold butter.

Have you ever had raw, grass fed cow's milk?.

If it's working for you: continue to do it. If it isn't working for you: stop doing it. The most personal experience is your own, believe in it!

When we did the whole30 we went back to dairy. It is a personal preference. We incorporated things back in a little quick and it made us sick, so do so slowly.

Ghee is allowed on whole30.

Good job on the no dairy!

I eat more 'primal' as you mentioned, and I was day 14 into the Whole 30 when I started having dreams about eating cheese! I do think I may have a slight addiction to the stuff though :)

I haven't touched dairy since my Whole30. It was definitely a big deal for me, though we sure aren't all the same. Hope you continue to have great results.

As mentioned above, once you get through the 30 days, start to try and incorporate foods and see how you tolerate them. If you tolerate well, the Kerry Gold makes a great addition to that morning coffee!
