I have not eaten meat, fish and dairy products since June 2014. I feel great, you can read about my vegetarian diet here. Recently, I came up with the idea to return to the cheese that has recently been "following me" as part of the experiment. I dreamed of a Greek salad with feta cheese or a pizza with normal cheese (although pizza with vegan cheese in vb veganburgers in Gdańsk is delicious!).
Return to cheese was an interesting experiment, which unfortunately turned out to be quite painful for me. I returned to cheese for 2 weeks. I thought it was enough time to see any effects.
The first dish with cheese was tasty, but it was a bit strange to eat. For such a long period of time I didn't miss cheese and actually forgot what it tastes like. It's the same with eggs, even though I've never been a fan of them, now I miss them completely. I found many recipes for cakes, pancakes, pies that I always made with eggs. I also modify the recipes found and instead of eggs, add ground chia seeds or flaxseed safflower (they have the same properties as eggs).
In the second week of the experiment, I started increasing the dose of cheese specialties. The effects were very painful. My stomach started to go crazy, and I felt irritable and angry that I wanted to experiment.
There were flatulence and other stomach sensations, including stomach ache, or rather a bowel torsion. For several days after stopping the dairy product, my stomach was unstable.
Thanks to this experience, I know that my body does not respond well to dairy products, especially to larger quantities. It was a painful experience that I don't want to repeat anymore.
