    Cottage Cheese - yea or nay?

    Never has 1 food generated such controversy...

    I eat 1/2 to 1 cup a day depending what diet I'm on. It's great with 2 tbsps of Peanut Butter...mmm.

    My wife thinks it looks like some "prisoner's nasty curddled body excrement"...

    Love it or hate it?

    (just curious)

    Ongoing asthma has caused me to give up dairy (again). It may well be permanent this time.

    As you might expect, epinephrine is my drug of choice...

    Laz

    Dammit Kex, your sensationalizing of people's problems has gone too far this time...just to sell a thread. Geez, you're no better than those Hollywood photogs that doctor-up celebrity pictures...http://www.starpulse.com/news/index....ellulite_pictu


    ..oh...waitaminute...you really meant it...

    Absolutely! I've never tried the peanut butter thang but I like heavy doses of ceyenne pepper. Great, low-fat way to get your dairy.

    So many diets in my life and at least they no longer involve cottage cheese. I think I have eaten cottage cheese in just about any combination. I can eat cottage cheese but oddly I never crave it. Right now I am enjoying a lemon iced cookie with my chardonnay. cottage cheese.

    I'll pass. Don't hate it, but don't enjoy it either.
    Does look a lot like puke though.

    Yea. I love cottage cheese with fresh fruit.

    I have a double whammy. Like Kex, I'm also lactose intolerant but cheeses and yogurt don't seem to bother me (ice cream is totally evil). And like Laz, I have asthma but I will occasionally indulge in dairy when it's under control...although I probably shouldn't.

    One of my favourite things for lunch on a warm summer's day is a plate of fresh berries and grapes with cottage cheese, drizzled with a little honey (the real stuff not the processed crap from the supermarket) and sprinkled lightly with some pecans or walnuts.

    Being lactose intolerant is an allergy. They are allergic to dairy products. Often, when someone is allergic to one thing, there are other things that become probable allergies.

    Yeah yeah, I know. My English sucks. But you get my point right?

    Actually, Lactose Intolerance is not an allergy. Although some people are allergic to milk products, the body's reaction is different.

    Lactose intolerance is the inability to properly digest milk products due to your body not producing the enzyme required to break down the sugars in milk during the digestive process. A full description is here. Some people take enzyme pills, like Lactaid, before they eat dairy products and that helps break down the sugars and avoid the uncomfortable symptoms.

    Where asthma is concerned, dairy products create phlem and mucus in your body. Excess mucus can constrict your airways. Many people who suffer from asthma find that reducing or removing dairy from their diets helps to reduce the number and severity of asthma attacks.

    I'm not sure if that answers your question Kex. There's lots of good information on lactose intolerance, milk allergies and asthma on the Mayo Clinic website.

    Now I feel dumb...I started getting really bad stomach pains caused by gas and all the nasties that digestion (or indigestion produce)after drinking too much milk, eating ice cream, etc.
    After going to my doctor a few times he told me I was simply lactose intolerant because my stomach lacked certain enzymes. He advised me to avoid the foods that trigger me getting tummy aches. Or take Lactaid and such before hand.

    So I thought I was enzyme deficient...never once did he tell me it was an allergy. Maybe they mean the same thing???

    I've been deathly allergic to tomatoes for years...think there could be some correlation? No more tomato milkshakes for Kex

    Oh...okay...so it's more of a respiratory allergy relationship - so in the spring and fall I should cut back on milk maybe for a few weeks when the asthma gets bad?

    (edit: yes, I get all my medical advice from the ar.com forums!!!)

    Absolutely! I have terrible seasonal allergies that contribute to my asthma and I try to stay away from all dairy products during these seasons.

    Soy is a wonderful substitute for dairy (I buy soy milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream). Some people like rice products also, but I find them too watery. If you choose to replace milk products with soy products make sure that the product is made with organic soy beans. Soy is one of the most genetically modified products available, organic beans will not be GM.

    I avoid dairy any time that I have a respiratory illness, whether its an asthma problem or just a cold. I find that avoiding dairy at these times makes a huge difference in my ability to breath.

    As for the Intolerance. Based on the explanation of your symptoms, what your doctor has told you is most likely correct. Those are the same symptoms that I was having that eventually led to my diagnosis also. Your body can stop producing these enzymes as you age, so it's possible to develop this intolerance as an adult. That's what happened to me and because of that it was a long time before I made the connection between dairy and my discomfort and finally went to my doctor about it.

    The intolerance and the asthma are likely non-related issues. The only thing in common is that both are aggravated by consuming dairy products.

    No worries GM. Because I suffer from lactose intolerance and asthma I've done a ton of research on both.

    Anything that you want to know about acid reflux disease?

    Where have you been hiding buddy?

    As far as cottage cheese is concerned its just nasty. I love dairy, sour cream, most cheese, but that one I can't do.

    Partially true. We did visit a few of my dad's friends who moved into gated communities. Almost made me want to grow old faster. Man! Some of those places are frickin nice!
