The kind of milk allergy where you get sick and throw up/vomit all your food if you drink or eat anything with too much milk.

I'm not talking about lactose intolerance, I'm talking about a straight up allergy.

Examples of foods/drinks that would trigger this: cheese, pizza (because of the cheese content), regular ice cream, regular cow's milk, whipped cream (found in starbucks mocha)

Examples of foods/drinks that would not trigger this: Eggs, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, waffles/pancakes (milk batter mixed in is ok as long as it's not too much)

A milk allergy has nothing to do with staying thin.

That's the answer to your question. If you have a different question, maybe you should ask it.

Bad question on my part....

Please lock or delete this thread moderators.

Discussion over. And no I do not have bulimia. I've read your link and I don't even come close.

I don't think that's a very helpful post at all. The OP asked for help.

I have the milk allergy. It does not make me throw up, it causes severe congestion in my head and a killer headache. Also lethargy and just not feeling well, bloated stomach. I went to doctors for years before an allergist finally tested me.

It could possibly make you thin if you are throwing up. Also, when you have food allergies you usually are not absorbing the nutrients very well. I was always too skinny when I was a kid but I don't know if it had anything to do with the dairy allergy or even if I HAD that dairy allergy back then.

I will feel pretty good as long as I stick to your second list of foods--soy milk, coconut milk, etc. but just some cream in a cup of coffee will affect me. It's a rotten allergy to get stuck with. Make sure you go to an allergist and get tested for foods if you haven't already and tell them that you suspect dairy products as the culprit because I found that most allergists won't even test adults for food allergies. They think it's only for kids.

Well when you ask if it "makes it easier or harder" that indicates to me that you would not avoid them if they were conducive to losing weight. You are not suppose to have it at all so why bother asking?

GPs have very little nutrition training. When you have a special condition like allergies you go to a specialist that deals with that as you did. If one was throwing up violently from dairy (more extreme reactions) most GPs would test for that allergy. Its kinda easier to see its that when the reaction is so extreme.

I would say no.

You can still eat a lot of pasta, a lot of meat, etc. all of which can cause weight gain.

I have heard that you can see an allergist and they can give you shots over the course of 1-3 years to clear up a food allergy. It's all dependent on your health insurance and if you're willing to endure shots for 1-3 years just to have dairy.

These days, it's very easy to find dairy alternatives.

I suggest Daiya for cheese.
As for milk, I love almond milk. I don't find a difference between brands so I wouldn't worry about that. Soy milk isn't bad either. I've just heard conflicting things about soy so I try to limit my consumption.

I have yet to try any non-dairy ice creams but if you're interested, look into ice cream made from coconut milk or almond milk. You can search the internet for vegan ice cream recipes. I have yet to try any. I switched to veganism in November and I very rarely eat ice cream outside of the summer time.

Best of luck, OP!

There are cookbooks out there for those with dairy allergies. There's a food blog for every diet so you can look online for dairy free recipes.

For an ice cream replacement Rice Dream makes some good ones. So Delicious is a soy version and it has a really good flavor called chocolate almond bark--I think that's the name of it. There is some that's from coconut milk but I have a harder time finding it. Beware of the really and truly delicious coconut bars on a stick because they contain dairy and they are so good that you end up eating more than one.

Get an electric ice cream maker and have fun making ice creams that are non dairy using the milk substitutes. You just have to learn how to thicken it--corn starch is one method that comes to mind. You can find recipes online.

Also there is O Soy imitation yogurt and you get the same beneficial bacteria as in real yogurt and it tastes pretty good. A doctor who actually knew about nutrition told me not to go over one cup of soy product per day as it can affect your hormones (raise estrogen.)

Coconut milk ice cream is very tasty. I belive the mainstream brand is coconutbliss or coconutdream. They also have ice cream sandwiches. I noticed coconut milk ice cream at trader joes today.

But I don't understand what this has to do with weight loss.
