Let me correct this to be more clear.

Milk is pure sugar to me. I don't eat sugar, haven't since 1973.

Probably a good idea. Although macrophages fight infection with the aid of sugar.

I've reconsidered my dairy intake and I've found out that excess dairy intake is a contributing factor to one of my many maladies.

I'm open to alternative breakfast selections but sardines and anchovies are out of the running.

One? Probably a lot more than one. Have
hard boiled eggs and a piece of whole wheat
toast for breakfast. Something I've been doing
for 20 years in intermittent fasting. I eat when
I get up, I eat again for dinner about 6 hours
later, and eat nothing for the next 18 hours.

After dinner you should never eat anyway,
snacking is what makes people fat.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Have you read any of Tony Robbins books?

snacking is what makes people fat.

People get fat due to the interplay of ghrelin and leptin, the pathogens in their gut, the leakiness of their gut, the interplay of the skin-endocrine system, the presence of incidentelomas (often found at autopsy because doctors think pheochromocytomas are so rare as to be non-existent).
Many people eat to satisfy the pathogens in their gut and their brains.

Due to the fact they take in way
more calories than they burn.
No diet in the world will work if
you eat 3000 calories a day and burn
2500. I don't care it you're eating
steak or seaweed, you will get fat.

Do any of your neighbors have the plant growing locally? It seems easy enough to make. If you decide to buy it from Mercola or someone else, you may not like the price.

I was trying to gain weight and was still losing pounds. Didn't look deep enough into the coconut oil I was using daily. Turns out there is a coconut oil diet? Seems like that was contributing to my weight loss, I stopped the oil and my weight has at least plateaued?

Walked to the food bank, nearly collapsing with the effort.
Declined the two pounds of cheese and two containers of milk thanks to EvevBob's statements.
Got cheap spaghetti, a day old pie labeled Mince that turned out to be cherry pie, a sliced apple, a salad.
For four weeks!
nearly collapsed on the way back, had to be helped the last two hundred feet.

poverty is not fun.
