I am not a strict paleo-ist, nor are many. I am almost Paleo eater. I don't put Paleo dogma above my own research. We are all free to choose. In the end I am comfortable with my decision and research. I follow the info from Weston Price and Gary Taubes more than I care about being a Paleo dogmatist.

I approach the lifestyle from a health stand point and my primary focus is to steer clear of grain-based carbs, legumes, sugar, taters, etc. There is evidence that these have been detrimental to human health and development.

As far as lactose-free dairy, that's my personal choice based on quite a bit of research. I know many Paleo eaters that use dairy. I don't wish to debate. The choice is yours. This isn't about debating or dogma for me, it's about health. I don't mean this as a poke in the eye, or like I am better or smarter. I simply am comfortable with my reasons and logic.

I know the fats in dairy are safe, and I know the dairy I eat is nearly 100% fat (lactose-free), so I am not worried. My primary concern is insulin regulation, hormonal regulation, and staving off diseases such as heart disease, high cholesterol and arthritis.

Here are some resources that explore the topics to a greater extent:
