I cut out meat about a month ago and it seems like I have become more sensitive to dairy scince then. I recently had what I called a milkshake hangover. It usually hits the next day gas bloating, stomach cramps, frequent bathroom trips. Has anyone else experienced this after cutting out meat? Just curious.
I have cut out a lot of dairy.

    I think it would be entirely possible. A few months after I cut out meat I ended up cutting out dairy and eggs originally because it didn't make me feel good and it also smelled and tasted funny, almost sort of 'moldy'. I think when our bodies get used to eating things that are biologically appropriate they become more sensitive to things that aren't.

    Many believe that consuming dairy products is much worse health-wise than eating meat.

    Taking the milk from cows that should be consumed by calves is illogical, not to mention cruel and unhealthy.

    Milk protein (casein) is a major cause of food allergies.

    The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and Thinkin' Folks Books are good sources of info on the problems with dairy products.

    Talk to your medical practitioners before making large changes to your diet.

    When you say youve cut out meat the real question is what did you replace it with? When I started to cut out meat I did get more bloated because I was eating more veg, fruit and wholegrains. They are all high in fibre and it did make me bloated for a little while until my body got use to the high fibre and I started to feel so much better. If you can try to have lemon and warm water in the morning or lemongrass tea it helps with digestion. I eat very little diary anyway because I'm lactose sensitive. Hope that helps xxx
