There are many celebs out there that are lactose intolerance. One thing I learned from them is that they take action into finding alternatives to dairy and lactose intolerance. Even it means drinking lactose-free milk, finding alternatives such as soy, rice,almond or rice milk. Or they simply do not have dairy at all. They also consume lactase in the form of a pill or tablet that helps one to eat dairy without suffering the symptoms of lactose intolerance. However they find a solution, lactose intolerance has never stopped them from achieving their life goals. What stopping you?
