Struggle: Stomach Discomfort After Dairy Consumption

posted on 12/3/2016 Facebook Facebook

Lactate Processing Gene: LCT

You want your fitness and health, mind and body to work symbiotically—so both benefit. When one piece of either puzzle is out of whack, it can have a domino effect, which is exactly what happens with a lactose intolerance. Whether it''''s been caused by genetics or your environment, an intolerance prevents your body from digesting the lactose in milk and other dairy products, which can wreak havoc on your GI tract and tie your stomach in knots pre- and mid-workout. 

The hack:
You probably know if you''''re intolerant to dairy, if you can digest lactose, or if you have a sensitivity based on how your stomach feels after eating milk-based products.If you''''re intolerant, cut it out completely and begin incorporating non-dairy protein powders and foods rich in vitamin D and calcium. You''''re only going to suffer stomach and bowel problems if you try to muscle through it. Be careful if you''''re sensitive, and talk to a dietitian; if you start weening yourself off dairy, you can make yourself intolerant.
