I haven’t started any diet yet but have been diagnosed pre-diabetic by my GP. The 8-week blood sugar diet books do recommend adding dairy into the diet but I’ve been avoiding regular dairy intake. Although I’ve not been diagnosed as lactose intolerant (I do have an inflammatory issue), but I do have a problem digesting dairy and also avoid lacto-free milk. What can I have on the diet as a dairy alternative that is a viable substitute? I currently have either Almond or Soya milk but not sure if that will just add to my almond or soya intake rather than the recommended dairy intake. Not sure about yoghurt and cream alternatives either. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, especially from any lactose intolerant dieters.
