Josh, Wondering why you say most of the time do not drink milk? Is it milk you should avoid only or all dairy? Also what are you

I don’t necessary advise to avoid all milk or dairy. Dairy is considered “good” building food. It’s great for people who are low weight, body building, kids, or people who have a hard time eating enough solid food. The issue lies in the fact that A LOT of people are lactose intolerant and they don’t even know it. Products like milk which is high in lactose can often cause stomach cramping, inflammation, and as a result poor absorption of nutrients. You can get tested but the easiest way to figure it out is to take note of how you feel after you drink it. If I don’t know I usually get people to take it out of client’s programs for a few weeks to see what happens.
Almond milk is great. I usually make my own with 1 cup of soaked almonds and two cups of water in a vitamix or blender adding honey or stevia for sweetener with a bit a vanilla and cocoa powder. Then run it through a really fine strainer or nut milk bad. The left meal can be used for high fibre high protein pancakes. Mix one egg in with every half cup.
