I've taken your suggestions on board and will give them a go...thanks guys.
Just a quick response, I never go past Anlene low fat milk. I know you said you didn't want cows milk because of its high lactose content but the added vitamin D and high calcium content is very beneficial for absorption of calcium plus studies have shown that a diet with sufficient calcium (1000mg a day atleast) helps stop partial fat absorption in the intestines which helps control weight.
Also the protein level in cow's milk is sufficient enough to cause a delay in sugar absorption anyway which will not cause a spike in blood sugar levels.
I'm not big on soy products at all to be honest because the jury is out on whether or not they are actually beneficial. Soy contains phytoestrogens which mimick estrogen in the body, such an action could increase the risk of certain cancers such as breast cancer. I was reading somewhere that unless you grew up eating soy (such as in Asian cultures) then you shouldn't start eating it later in life.
Anyway, hope that helps.
