I know that lactose is a form of sugar. Like I said, I don't personally have a problem processing sugars in moderation so it doesn't matter to me that lactose is a form of sugar. I don't really get your point but that's OK too.

I read labels. I'm pretty well informed when it comes to types of food and fuel for our bodies. I also believe that not everyone reacts the same to every substance and that for some people sugars or diary or gluten or eggs or whatever are more difficult to process than for other people.

For me personally I have to avoid gluten and cut back significantly on fats in order to feel comfortable digestive wise and to lose weight. Some other people cut out grains and that's what works for them. Some cut out many fats, and some cut out sugar. Some people simply have to count calories and can eat just about anything as long as they stay in a weight loss range (that varies from person to person as well).

My advice is to find the formula that works best for you, be sure you're getting a good bunch of nutrients, and generally speaking eat more veggies and fruits - the more intense the color the better. But hey, that's just general advice.
