But that didnot deter me.So here I am, back again with another wild endeavor. This time, I’m going a healthier route. I promise.
Im not overweight, but I have trouble maintaining my weight. I gain it very easily and can never seem to lose enough.Recently, Khlo Kardashian admitted in an interview that the reason her body has been looking so fierce lately is because she gave up dairy. She lost 11 pounds in a month just by not having milk products! It sounds so easy, right?
What Saint Khlo says goes. I would trust her with my life. So, I, too, am going dairy-free.
According to Diet Doctor(this website may not be an actual doctor), cutting down on dairy is essential to losing weight when youve plateaued. Dairy could actually be the culprit behind your slowing weight loss:
Dairy products all contain a varying amount of lactose (the milk sugar), which slows down weight loss. Whats more, part of the protein in milk generates an insulin response, which can have the same effect.
Unfortunately, I have an intense addiction to cheese, chocolate and essentially anything with dairy in it. Im already gluten-free, a side effect of being a basic white girl, so cheese has always been a kind of comfort food for me.
But as the old saying goes, Why have cheese when you can, instead, be sad? Come with me, little ones, on my journey down a cheese-less, chocolate-devoid existence as I attempt to lose weight and to get just a little bit closer to the goddess Khlo.
Disclaimer: I want to lose weight for my own personal reasons but in no way do I feel that anyone elseneeds to lose weight, and also probably no one should emulate me ever.
Week One, Day One
Step one was eliminating the delicious half-and-half I put in my coffee each morning. Goodbye, sweet angelic cream.
Bae and I spent about 500 hours in the dairy section of our bargain grocery store looking for almond milk.Every time I picked up a carton and readthe ingredients, I would say to anyone who could hear (sorry, Mike): What the f*ck is this? Because all the f*cking almond milk was full of bullsh*t sugar. You think you’re being healthy when you drink this? Well, you’re not.
So when we finally found one that said ~unsweetened~, I felt satisfied.
