Brief Answer:
Avoid milk products

Detailed Answer:
Hello! XXXXXXX Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Loose bowel movements with only dairy products suggest that you have developed lactose intolerance. Actually lactose is present in milk which requires lactase enzyme in our body for digestion which may spontaneously disappear from our body with age so one may not be able to digest dairy products and in the intestine they act as osmotic agent and drag fluids from vascular compartment to intestinal lumen.

So you have to avoid all dairy products.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
