Default anybody avoiding dairy?

I love love cheese! Did I mention I love cheese?
However cheese is one of my foods that I have been avoiding because I over indulge when I eat it.
I don't drink milk because I really dislike it. So that is not issue for me.
I will say, I thought I would be craving it more. I did the first week, but not any more. I feel great. I'm not sure if it's that I'm eating better and not drinking wine as much.
Does any one else notice a difference when you cut dairy out of your diet.

Eta: I just realized I put a tablespoon of Greek yogurt in my tuna salad today. Lol, duh. I guess I'm avoiding cheese not dairy.

I haven't eaten dairy in 6 years or so. I cut cheese prior to that and I think that did help with cutting calories. I used to love cheese but now I think it is gross.

Cheese can sure be addicting! I've avoided dairy for awhile, though I guess I don't count pizza as dairy, lol. I don't trust the industry anymore, once it became commonplace to feed antibiotics & growth-type hormones to cows. Also, I get a skin reaction along the sides of my nose from eating casein products, one of the milk proteins (no problem with whey, tho). I don't miss it at all.

Oh my....I can devour cheese, that's for sure! And I LOVE milk. But I'm finding I am lactose intollerant now. So I just bought fat free organic lactose free milk at Whole Foods. It's really good. And yes, I tried coconut milk and almond milk. They just don't cut it for me.

I'm enjoying the fact that things taste just as good with out cheese.
Still feeling good with out it. I don't know if I will always avoid it but for now it's working. Saves me the calories.
