Hi - I'm Type II and following a low carb diet. Any tips on what type of milk to have and why. I was using skim milk but was informed that the lactose content was greater than that in regular milk. Thanks, Stephanie

I use soy milk most of the time. If I want a more creamy texture for adding to tea or coffe or something that is better w/ creamy texture, I use almond milk.
I use Hood Calorie Countdown (not the Fat Free version) - It's only 3 g carb in 8 oz and it's very rich and smooth; also comes in chocolate. Love it for my protein drinks. It's now available almost everywhere - even WalMart.
I can't use soy milk - not good for folks with hypothyroidism
Hi. I use Blue Diamond Almond milk...Vanilla (unsweetened) or Original. i have it with my cereal and have been trending "flatline" on my CGM. This has been a pleasant side affect.

Regular milk caused too much of a spike for me so I use unsweetened almond milk

I use Honeyville Milk Alternative. It is a instant milk alternative mixed with whey. It has 9 grams of carbs for 1 cup. It does not spike me bad. You can google Honeyville, they are a survivalist food storage company and this stuff tastes great after chilling it. Its the closest thing to real milk from the instant milk category.

I dont always drink alot of milk and this is great to have on hand without running to the store for one thing. I am not crazy for the almond, soy, rice and so on for both taste and cost.

Wellllll . . . I don't drink milk by itself, I only use it in cooking. And it's always regular milk, unless I'm making hot chocolate -- then it's half and half (what they call a "Breve" when a barrista makes it).

For my coffee, I use full strength cream.

Somewhat to my amazement, I found that when I started eating a truly low carb diet, my lipid numbers dropped like a rock, regardless of what I ate. Now that's what I call a nice side effect!
