Addicted to raw milk?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 25, 2013 at 6:50 PM

Every time I drink raw milk, I just cannot stop.

I have tried drinking pasteurized milk, tea, juice, hot chocolate - nothing. Actually, I kind of dislike them all.

But when I get my hands on raw milk, it is like I am possessed by something and cannot stop till the last drop. So I cannot buy it anymore - I keep drinking like there is no tomorrow. Am I a milkoholic or something?

Any ideas why this might be?

I am afraid I am going to gain weight. Maybe it is worth a try but I will probably drink it all day long and then die from overbloating or something like that.

Yes, but it is only with raw MILK!!! Not with anything else. Why can I use self-control on everything else BUT raw milk???

You are welcome. Just for your information: I get really mean when I get angry. You are lucky I respect other Paleohackers, otherwise things would get really nasty.

I think your body wants more fat. Have you tried increasing your fat intake? This may stop cravings, as I used to be addicted to Horizon's Whole Milk. I ate bacon, juicy steaks, and avocados. Really helped me stop drinking a carton.

Milk, raw or otherwise, contains addictive opioids, just like wheat does that some people have trouble with.

I only know this because I have the same problem with milk. I always want more. So, I researched it.

Here's one article on the subject. Ignore the author's judging tone and read it for the information.

http://weeksmd.com/2008/01/addicted-to-milk-and-wheat/

Or, do your own research on opioids in casein (and gluten.) It's probably no coincidence that people who have trouble with casein or gluten often have trouble with both. I used to eat a loaf of bread in one sitting. I could probably drink a quart of milk in one sitting as well.

No, I don't know why some people do just fine with milk. Maybe they're able to break down those opioid peptides.

You know, you can live solely on raw milk. It would simplify your diet routine. :p As for the "can't stop eating it" effect, I would look into what you're getting from the milk that you haven't been getting much of elsewhere. Deficiencies do breed cravings. I don't milk, especially raw milk (you lucky bum) is evil, so take the advice for what it's worth.

If you haven't already and you have access to it, you could try goats milk instead. I find I get cravings in general when I drink cow's milk but not from goat's.
