Day 2 GOMAD
Well yesterday did my first day of gomad and i found out im lactose intoleran... Extreme bloat flet like an alien was trying to rip me open from those movies. Bought some lactasr enzymes gonna see how these bitches help
If you made it through the whole gallon, i doubt you are lactose intolerant.
i think the body can only produce a certain amount of lactase at a time and the belly aches are from the over abundance of lactose overcoming lactase "reserves". the topic of lactase production being adaptable has not reached a clear verdict that i know of.
welcome to drinking the shit outta milk. the lactase will help on bloat but not on the rank emissions you may experience.
Lactaid whole milk worked for me. A bit pricy though.
When I jumped full force into a gallon a day after not drinking any milk on a 7 month deployment, I got some serious upper respiratory issues (could have been from the multi-stop travel on the way home, but I doubt the milk splurge helped) and I started shitting cheese logs... I'm a big fan now of slowly ramping up. Also, raw milk gives me less of a problem than regular milk, but I can't be sure if it's the pastuerization, the homogenization or the grass-fed vs. grain fed issue, since I can't find the different variants necessary to be sure. But, I don't want to start another raw milk discussion because so many people are so sensitive about it; don't do it if you're not comfortable with it, it just worked better for me (although it's fucking expensive here...).
Yeah, you kind of have to work up to a gallon over at least a couple days. I find one tab of Lactaid per pint works very well, but you'll have to experiment to see what works for you. Many people would have a problem with the sudden transition to a whole gallon.
And it doesn't come in gallon jugs...1/2 gal and 3/4 gal only. I just grab 3 3/4 gals at a time

Week 1 - drink 1/4 gallon per day.

Week 3 - drink 3/4 gallon per day.
Week 4 - the whole enchilda
You could potentially stretch this out for 6 or 8 weeks, if need be.
Also, spread the milk throughout the day. A quarter of a gallon is 4 US cups. Drink one cup at every meal to start. You may also find that you do not need a full gallon during this process, too.
