I've read that type A should not drink whole milk.  Does anybody know if type A can drink skim milk?  Or if type A drinks cows milk should it be lactose free?

The rating for milk includes skim, lowfat and whole ( and lactose free is not acceptable). It is an avoid. What are you using it for?

Maybe we can help you figure out what else you can use instead?

The details of why it is an avoid can be found at this link.

In the blood type diet as I find it in Eat Right 4 Your Type, all cow's milk is an avoid for A's, whether whole or skim.

Cindy, if you're a Secretor, you can use goat's milk, which is Neutral.  It is Avoid for Non-Secretors.  

If you can find a good local source for fresh goat's milk, it is mild, sweet and delicious.  Strong tasting, commercial products give goat's milk a bad reputation.

Only if it is organic...

Joking. Why on earth would it matter, milk is milk... Like blue potatoes and yellow potatoes are potatoes.

Whole, 2%, 1%, and skim milk all share the same ratings. Lactose-free versions of those milks also share the same ratings.

Lactose-free milk is appropriate for those who have milk as neutral or better (mostly Bs) yet have GI trouble from the lactose in unfermented milk. It's not appropriate for anybody who shouldn't be having milk at all.

That said, if you're weaning onto this diet slowly, you may want to make other changes first and continue drinking milk for another few weeks. The lactose-free milk is no more harmful than full-lactose milk.

Since you're a type A, soymilk is probably a good option. Read labels carefully- many commercial soy milks contain "avoid" ingredients such as sugar and/or carrageenan. I've seen shelf-stable milks that contain only "organic soybeans and water." That's the kind you want. If it's not organic, it's probably GMO (genetically modified organisms) and is unhealthy for everybody.

The same brands that make the "pure" soymilks also make  fancier flavors with unwanted additives, and the packages may look similar.

Another option is to make your own soy, rice, or almond milk. A third option is to do without any kind of "milk" at all.
