I have already encountered my first road block. Hopefully from what I have seen of this community, I can get sorted.

MILK! I thought it might be a problem. And it appears it is. It seems I have a milk allergy. And it is a prominent one. Prior to this strength program's beginning I had been off dairy for about 2 months thanks to the paleo diet. For the first time since I can remember I was not suffering from nasal congestion, throat/lung phlegm, allergy symptoms (sneezing, coughing, stuffy head), and finally cold symptoms when consuming milk in excess. I did a very short SS cycle in Feb. this year and was sick for almost 3 weeks straight. It was the heavy consumption of milk. I hoped that it was also due to gluten as I removed both from my diet at the same time.

It's got to be the milk. I basically started with the 64oz of milk 4 days ago and I am already noticing a difference. Allergy symptoms have returned. I have a stuffed up head, and I feel like I might be coming down with a cold. It could be the new sleep cycle, which is proving difficult (but i'm sticking with it no matter how hard because I know I will adapt).

Do I have any options? Should I try lactose intolerant milk to see if I experience the same results? What will be a caloric alternative to milk if I am unable to consume it in high quantity's? I don't know that I can eat any more solid food daily.

I'm also willing to be patient. I'm going to try to get most of my milk calories early in the day and see if they symptoms will dissipate by afternoon/evening when symptoms seem to be worse.

Thoughts? Suggestions?
