A Blood Type Inch 4
Blood Type A
You're now gluten free and organic and you have been for a month. You should be seeing a few results like:
- more energy
- less bloat
- less brain fog
Sometimes though what you notice more is what happens when you get OFF your diet and cheat just a little. Do you feel really yucky when that happens? Be encouraged! You used to feel that way all the time! You now are beginning to know what it feels like to FEEL GOOD!
Inch 4 - Remove Unnecessary Dairy
What is unnecessary dairy? It's dairy that is EASY for you to eliminate. For example - in your coffee.
1. Move to an almond or coconut creamer instead of half-n-half or Coffee Mate.
2. Start buying coconut milk or almond milk instead of cows milk.
3. Stop drinking a "glass of milk." We have been conditioned to believe that we should drink more milk. Take a look at some of these frightening facts about milk and see if you still feel the same way:
In observational studies both across countries and within single populations, higher dairy intake has been linked to increased risk of prostate cancer (cited in ).
Observational cohort studies have shown higher dairy intake is linked to higher ovarian cancer risk (cited in ).
Cow’s milk protein may play a role in triggering type 1 diabetes through a process called molecular mimicry.
Across countries, populations that consume more dairy have higher rates of multiple sclerosis.
In interventional animal experiments and human studies, dairy protein has been shown to increase IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1) levels. Increased levels of IGF-1 has now been implicated in several cancers.
In interventional animal experiments and human experiments, dairy protein has been shown to promote increased cholesterol levels (in the human studies and animal studies) and atherosclerosis (in the animal studies).
The primary milk protein (casein) promotes cancer initiated by a carcinogen in experimental animal studies.
D-galactose has been found to be pro-inflammatory and actually is given to create animal models of aging.
Higher milk intake is linked to acne.
Milk intake has been implicated in constipation and ear infections (cited in ).
Milk is perhaps the most common self-reported food allergen in the world.
Much of the world’s population cannot adequately digest milk due to lactose intolerance.
