I don't live on coffee. I drink a few cups early in the morning. After that I rarely touch it, only sometimes if eating out in a dairy restaurant, and that's much less frequently than weekly.
Please don't forget that a lot of the pc forbidden foods are being discovered to be extremely healthy, like eggs and milk fat. Coffee is on that list, too.
I eat eggs every morning. They are a complete, perfect, natural unprocessed protein and don't contain salt. A cooked egg is very easy to digest.
Zero (0%) percent dairy products are forbidden in my home. They aren't natural. If you don't eat enough cholesterol your body will produce it in higher than necessary quantities. So, it's better to have regular dairy products of 3-5% fat. I shun the low fat and skimmed dairy products. But I don't eat yellow cheese, either. I rarely touch cheese at all. I have regular milk in my morning coffee and eat plain, unflavored goats yogurt. Generally, that's all the dairy I eat.
