    Switched to soy milk

    I switched to vegan type of milks from the alpro brand, and I digest it much better than normal whole milk which gives me massive diarrhea. According to cronometer it has less pufa than normal whole milk. Anyone with similar experiences as me?

    Heavy phlegm when I drink milk or fruit juice.

    Every time I drink fruit juice (especially citrus fruits), eat these fruits or drink milk, I have to quickly go to the sink to spit up large phlegm. It happens a few sips after another. Why? Is it a gastric acid problem or something like that?

    Just a quick post about something I thought many people will probably find interesting, considering the widespread use of oral vitamin D supplements. The findings of the study are a bit surprising, considering that vitamin D is one of the "fat-soluble" vitamins and as such is expected to be...

    Working in a health food store I have noticed the "plant based" foods being pushed like never before.

    Here’s how to get all your vitamins and minerals without vegetables

    I've gotten this question quite frequently. It's actually very simple to get all your micros without eating any veggies. But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you have to avoid veggies entirely (as long as they're not gut-irritating), they can taste absolutely great for sure. But many people...

It’s the same brand Ray used to/still drinks and I can see why because it does have a pleasing aftertaste that others milks do not have, After about a week waiting to...

    I've been drinking about 1.5 liters of whole milk a day for a few months, and I've gained quite a lot of weight, mostly in the belly. I also struggle to get enough protein in my diet because it's hard to drink any more whole milk than 1.5 litres a day, and milk is one of the only protein sources...
