Now I love yogurt and have started into fresh fruit juices. I also eat things I never did before like the green pepper of stuffed peppers. It is really a lifestyle change not just a diet.
Haha! You remind me... I wanted to try stuffed peppers this weekend! Never have had them before.
I used to think I was lactose intolerant or at least had an aversion to dairy; one thing I found out through food logging is that it's completely untrue. I can chug a glass of low-fat milk and be just peachy, and I can eat ice cream and yogurt without a problem, as well as cheese. It's the fatty creamy stuff I can't eat - sauces made with dairy products - I suspect it's the oil in them! I never would have known if I hadn't just started paying attention to what went in the hole in my face, logging, writing it down! Amazing.
