10 Best Foods To Add To Your Diet If You’re Lactose Intolerant

Many weight loss diets advise you to switch to low-fat or nonfat dairy products to cut calories out of your diet. If you’re lactose intolerant, you’re already avoiding these products (or you’re risking gastrointestinal distress). Dairy products do contain important nutrients that your body needs, like calcium and vitamin D. When you devise your weight loss meal plan, make sure you include non-dairy sources of these key nutrients for optimum health. Most people should get at least 1,000 mg of calcium daily, or at least 1,200 mg if you’re a woman over 50 or a man over 70, Diet Program New York, NY
