Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Flat Belly Milk Alternatives

Cynthia Cass, Prevention magazine's Grocery Guru, and coauthor of Flat Belly Diet!, gives out 38 tips for flat belly foods over at MSNBC's website.

A few of these foods are right for those of us with lactose intolerance or who try to avoid dairy altogether. Many of the others appear to be vegan, but you should double-check those yourself.

11. Milk alternative
Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Vanilla Non-Dairy Beverage: The unflavored version of this "milk," made from real almonds, contains 25 percent fewer calories than most soy milks. The vanilla provides only 90 per cup, while the unsweetened chocolate or vanilla varieties provide just 40 to 45 calories and 0g of sugar with no artificial sweeteners. Perfect by itself or in cereal, oatmeal, smoothies, or puddings. All of the flavors provide 20 percent of a day's calcium, 25 percent of vitamin D, and 50 percent of vitamin E.

13. Yogurt
Siggi's Icelandic Style Skyr Strained Non-Fat Yogurt: It's rich in immune-boosting probiotic bacteria, and this decadently thick yogurt provides a whopping 16 to 17g of protein per six-ounce container (three times that of regular yogurt) with just 100 to 120 calories in plain or dessertlike Pear and Mint, Orange & Ginger, and Pomegranate & Passion Fruit.

37. Ice cream alternative
Purely Decadent Dairy Free Pomegranate Chip Frozen Dessert: Made from organic soy milk, dark chocolate flakes, and natural pomegranate flavoring, this creamy dessert delivers just 200 calories per half cup, no cholesterol, and only 3.5g of saturated fat. + (FLAT BELLY)
