Those following a high-carb, low- or no-fat vegan dietary protocol do not eat/drink dairy products. Many use non-dairy milks, such as nut milks, and “cheeses” and “butter” made from cashews or tofu. While these substitutes are generally higher in carbohydrates than their dairy counterparts, they can be quite acceptable if they are homemade. Commercial dairy-free products, however, are often very high in sugar and chemical additives and are not healthful for diabetics.

Those attempting to follow a low-carb high-fat dietary protocol should choose full-fat dairy products rather than low-fat or fat-free which are mostly higher in sugar and sometimes unacceptable chemical additives than their full-fat counterparts.
