So you mention all dairy here. Are there any "better" dairy products than others? I'm having a really hard time on this aspect...

Great question Rachel. You can consume grass-fed, naturally sourced dairy products in moderation during the challenge. The bottom line is that dairy has lactose, which links with glucose as a disaccharide (double sugar). Additionally, dairy packs a lot of Omega 6, which when over-consumed can cause inflammation at the cellular level. Let me know if you have any other questions about specific foods - like milk, butter, or yogurt!
