Could eliminating a food out of my diet (due to possible intolerance) cause me to lose weight?

I haven't drunk/had milk for years; I'm cutting out hidden milk (digestive biscuits, an odd scrape of butter, milk in Green & Blacks chocolate)

Seeing dietician in March

While no expert, I would definitely think so, as intolerance would imply digestive problems, so cutting the thing out would smooth out your digestion IYSWIM. That said dairy is also deceptively full of calories as protein, so even skimmed milk still has a relatively high calorie count, so you might still have reduced your calories more than you think.

Jolene is right though - maybe a trip to your GP is in order - either to get your intolerance identified and correctly treated or to identify if there is another problem.

I lost 2 stone in 8 weeks after cutting out dairy and soya whilst bf, the dairy alternatives are very low fat in comparison. If you are at all worried you should see your GP wink

Well my tummy is much better; it just seems a bit odd/backwards to me

Don't know but it seems like a good thing to me! Has the intolerance got better?
I might try it! I could do with losing a stone!

I cut out all dairy since mid-December & I have lost nearly a stone

& I didn't eat much before that as I was 'being careful'

It just seems odd
