First, conventional wisdom isn’t always right. There is a lot of money spent by the dairy industry to make you feel like you have to get in at least 3 servings of dairy a day when the studies they site are not that strong. And by my count you are getting 5 – 6 servings a day – way more than you need.
So why do I restrict dairy? First milk should not be considered a beverage but a food. And as such it starts to cut into what you may have to eat. I mean if you are drinking close to a quart of milk a day + a serving of Greek yogurt + a cheese stick, you are taking in 500 calories in dairy products. When you consider that you really would only need about 1500 calories in total, that’s 1/3 of your daily calories. Beyond that, many people are sensitive to dairy. You may not be all out allergic but it can lead to bloating or allergies.
By taking the dairy down, I’m not totally eliminating it because many people, including myself, like dairy. But until you start releasing the weight, you should approach dairy cautiously and limit it. When you get close to your ideal weight, then add a bit more in if you like.
As for student meal plans, I’d need more input on what you are looking for. If you go over to my members section I have a section on food which includes things I buy that are priced right and work in a diet.
