Young Adults In Dairy Denial D:

Plus, I have a ridiculous weakness for whipped cream when I'm at work.

My GP thinks I may be a Coeliac because I am bordering on being anemic. No matter what I do, I can't get my iron levels up!
Anyway, yeah I laughed cause this is so me! I was told that I was lactose intolerant as a baby/young child, but I eventually was able to tolerate dairy. I mean, if I had a milkshake/iced chocolate from The Coffee Club or something I'd feel really ill, but how often did I have them? I also had problems if I had a fair bit of chocolate.
Just recently, over Christmas, I was staying at my grandparents place for the week, and they have a crazy number of teas and coffee's. In one day we had 4 cups of tea, 2 coffees, two small bowls of ice cream and yogurt. I thought my stomach was going to explode!! Since then, I seem to be having difficulty with any lactose at all! Before I started the Coeliac diet, I was having the low fat Zymil milk on cereal which was much better. Recently I've been ignoring the whole dairy thing, and just having it anyway.. icecream (gluten-free gelato - I swear it has lactose!), iced coffees (on skim milk, no ice-cream/cream).. chocolate.. yogurt.. cheese.. OUCH!!! This morning my stomach feels as if it's just going to run away and leave me here - I wouldn't blame it actually!!
It's so good to know that there are other people who are like me, and keep messing up!

I miss cheese the most though.

I have been eating gluten-free for over a year now, and although symptoms have improved, I am still sensitive to dairy. I have eliminated a large majority of the dairy from my diet, but am still consuming SOME yoghurt (plain),cottage cheese, natural chedder cheese and worst of all, the occasional bowl of ice cream
I tend to regret it within a few hours but I'm too stubborn to quit dairy all together
Is anyone else out there experiencing dairy withdrawls?
Ooh BIG time. When I cut dairy for the first time in 7th grade, I craved milk all the time. Though nowadays I've lost my taste for dairy milk because soymilk is so much richer and creamier, but other treats like cookies, ice cream, cheese, and pizza I miss bitterly. Whenever my friends are eating them around me and I'm not, I feel so deprived and like I'm sacrificing my soul.

Try hemp and almond milk and coconut ice cream
I first suspected lactose intolerance a few months ago but was too stubborn to eliminated it. You are talking to a person who used to drink 3-6 glasses of milk a day. That's in addition to the cereal, cheese, coffee creamer, etc. I've tried soy milk and rice milk as well as soy ice cream, but it's just not the same. It doesn't smell the same nor taste the same and I can never make myself stick with it for long, though I am still trying. Sigh.
