    Lactose Free Milk is NOT Sugar-Free

    They just changed the lactOse into lactAse. It was developed for lactose intolerant people.

    Soy milk is ok in small amounts. Too much soy can cause problems (raises estrogen levels and other stuff)

    A cup of soy milk per day would be alright

    ...and....soy milk is not w/o sugar either! You can get unflavoured/unsweetened soy milk...but it tastes even more disgusting than regular soy milk, lol.

    oooops thanks w8,

    forgot to mention that you should get the unsweetened soy milk which has 0.1g carbs per 100ml

    and it tastes like water mixed with chalk

    "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....

    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..

    There's actually no need for you to consume milk anyway....why do you want to drink it?

    well, I always thought that cereal was a pretty healthy way to go for breakfast, usually would have total, or grapenuts or something. Just a change from oatmeal.

    If you don't drink milk should you take calcium supplements I suppose??

    Most (read damn near all) breakfast cereals are poor choices for carbs! Taking a cal/mag supp would be okay.

    W8lifter,

    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.

    Cereal stuff

    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!!!
