As a woman I know calcium is very important and at the age of 16 I was in a car accident that crushed two of my vertebra (L1 & L2) So with that being said I always pay attention to how much dairy I have in my diet for mainly calcium, but dairy is also one of the things I don't have a problem consuming.

But how much dairy is too much?

I ask because last week when grocery shopping I realized for 1 person...yes just me...half of my grocery cart was filled with dairy products.

well err, depends what your doing doesnt it, all comes down to cutting or bulking i guess, or it would for me, while cutting i tend to keep the dairy down a bit but use it on refeeds :p i used to drink 2 pints of milk a day when i was growing up now i have the odd glass.

u probably can get calcium pills tho :p

As long as you divide it up, then it is probably safe. I take in just under 6 egg whites, 3 cups of nonfat milk, a cup of nonfat yogurt, and a cup of dry curd a day. That makes up about half of my total protein. I feel that as long as i don't have too much of one thing, more than 300 cal serving, that I must be fine, but there probably isn't much of a limit. I love dairy because of the the fine protein, calcium, barely any saturated fat, barely any cholesterol compared to meat, and NO FIBER. The only thing i am not pleased about is that i bought some stoneyfield organic ff yogurt yesterday and there is some fiber called inulin that adds 3 grams of fiber per serving. What is this world coming to?

Well I drink only skim, I would say I have at least 4-5 serving a day.

Just at maintance...thinking about trying to lose a little more weight, thinking is the key word. My diet guru (thats you Rob) I have talked into trying out South Beach, I think it would fit my lifestyle the best and I know I will have to kick out the dairy :( Because as I said before finding a diet for me is difficult since I am such a picky eater and slowly I have been changing stuff so that the good habits stick :)

the most important thing would be making sure your magnesium intake is sufficient for all that calcium, and if its not skim the saturated fat (and calories ob iously)
