I've recently (well, not that recently) realised I'm lactose intolerant and it's been getting progressively worse, and I've been having trouble trying to choose what kind of milk I should drink. It's honestly such a dilemma that I stand there at a grocery store just kind of checking them all out, and end up buying none, then getting so frustrated with myself the next morning when I haven't got any milk to go with my cereal. So, my question to the rest of you lactose-free milk drinkers, what is the ideal milk in terms of health, taste and slimming benefits? Also, I've been told a few times now that soy milk messes with your thyroid, is this true? It's got a lot of protein and I've sort of grown accustomed to the taste, but if the thyroid thing is true, I'll probably avoid it.
