Lactose intolerant?

Everytime I have a hot chocolate/mocha I have to run to the toilet within 20 minutes. Yet I have no problems when I have my huge bowl of cereal and milk for breakfast. I can eat chocolate, ice cream, yoghurt etc without problems.

Am I lactose intolerant?

If you can drink milk then you are not lactose intolerant. your body is not able to digest the chocolate or cocoa most probably.

Try avoiding these foods from your diet and see if it helps.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Hi ,

It is best to avoid substances that you have documented allergic reactions to. You could try soya milk or coconut milk as alternatives.

Do consult your allergy specialsit about your symptoms.

Let us know about what your specialist advises and if you have any oother doubts.
