"Lactose-Free" milk is very decieving. The enzyme lactase is added which pre-digests the sugar lactose and breaks it down into the simple sugars glucose and galactose so it contains the same amount of sugars....
William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.
Well, my problem is I never drink milk, always upsets my stomach for the rest of the day, I thought it was lactose, so I got lactose free, same thing, recently I thought I'd try soy, and after a week, I started getting the gurgly stomache again.. so... I guess I'm going to end up giving it up again all together..
What do you think of TOTAL cereal, I used to buy it for the vitamins, now I take DV packets anyway, but I still like it, and I thought it was kinda healthy? I'll probably be cutting it out anyway because of the milk thing, but I'm just curious if you think it's a bad choice as well? it has 23 carbs per serving, 5 from sugar.?
I think all breakfast cereals suck. The only one that is remotely good is Fibre One...and that is only because of the zero sugar and the high fibre...however, it is made w/ aspartame and still a processed carb...so it sucks too.
I also think that this cereal stuff is all crap...they are only used to make you want more for the taste and sugar...oatmeal is the one and only real breakfast, and if you can't eat it with water make an omelette: 12 egg whites, one and a half cup of oatmeal plus rasins cinnamon and stevia(natural sweetner) - have it all blended and cook...it is awesome!!!
Lactase is an enzyme, it's not a sugar. Lactose is a disaccharide sugar, which we all know. It varies, but Lactose-free milk usually still has a high sugar content. Same goes for Soy Milk.
I don't drink a lot of milk because I'm lactose intolerant, and diabetes runs in my family. I'm not diabetic, yet, but I do have a 50/50 chance of developing the problem. I try to stay away from simple sugars most of the time (except for post-workout and a few other occasions). So this also means I don't really eat cereal.
I make sure to take a Calcium supplement. I take about 1.5g to 2.0g a day. It's there to compensate for my lack of high-calcium whole foods in my diet (ie: Milk), and to ensure good lifting sessions (since Calcium is vital to muscle contraction). I should probably also take Magnesium & Potassium supplements (or eat whole foods that are high in them), but I haven't yet
saturated fat is found in milk ^^. And lactose is still sugar. 4 calories /g. you can try and balance it out on the nutrition label if you dont believe it. Skim milk has alot of sugar that wldnt be good if you're trying to cut, but at 70cals per glass, i guess you can take in 1 or 2.
