I have stopped eating yogurt a couple of times in the past because I felt like it was giving me intestinal problems. I have now stopped eating yogurt permanently about 6 months ago or longer. When I stopped eating yogurt, I basically stopped getting stomach cramps and diarrhea. I then switched to cottage cheese thinking it was just the culture in yogurt. I was ok with that for a while and then decided that I was having the same problem and quit eating cottage cheese a couple of weeks ago. Stomach cramps have disappeared. This week, I caved and ate yogurt one morning. Next morning…. diarrhea (I know TMI). I seem to be ok drinking skim milk and eating cheese.
So… could I be lactose intolerant? Allergic to something?
It is a shame because I love both yogurt and cottage cheese and now I can’t seem to eat either.
