How not eating dairy for 7 days affected me.

Not eating dairy for 7 days was doable but not fun for me, because as you guys know I love greek yogurt.  Other than this I had no real problem sticking to it.

I didn't notice much difference.
Eating and not eating dairy didn't do much of a difference for my body.  I had dairy on my 8-9th day without it and the only thing I notice was more mucus, but cutting out dairy however did not cut out all mucus.  I still have yet to figure out why I am having so much mucus lately.  I thought it was because of dairy but I guess this proves wrong, I did notice some more mucus after having yogurt, but wasn't enough to notice that much. 

I may have some other food allergy or may just have an allergy to something in the air?  I have no clue because I never have this much flem in my throat but the last month or 2 it has been a ton.  I am however going to look at other ways to get rid of it.

The reason I chose dairy first was because of the book The Ultramind Solution and because I was hearing that dairy can cause more mucus.  I know this subject might be kind of gross or nasty, but I feel the need to be open with the things that are wrong with my body, because I am not perfect, and I know when I find the solution for it I will be able to share it with you guys and it may help you guys if you are experiencing the same type of thing.

Many people are allergic to dairy.
I forget the percentage but I believe it is about 75% of people are lactose intolerant, and yet most of us are drinking milk or eating some other dairy product.  Many times people will experience nausea or pain in the stomach if they are.  However if you have dairy everyday, then cut it out for a week like me you may notice differences in yourself or your body, especially if you eat it again after that week. By doing this you will be able to tell if you are allergic to dairy.  I was lucky and only had a small amount more of mucus in my throat, not pain in my stomach or nausea.

Closing thoughts.
Take the challenge for one week of no dairy.  It is hard to do but worth it if you think you are allergic to dairy and want to test it or just want to challenge yourself.  There are alternatives to milk and even ice cream if you are a big ice cream eater!  I eat the ice cream from time to time and is from Whole Foods called Luna and Larry's Coconut Bliss, it is made from coconut milk and has no dairy!  Give this a try for a week guys, your body will thank you!
