I would very much like the eating lifestyle of Paleo, but I really love milk, and yogurt and I understand Paleo cuts out Dairy products. I wouldn’t mind cutting out all Wheat products, that I can live with, but I don’t think I could live without drinking Milk. My understanding of the Paleo is Seeds, Nuts(no peanuts, I think), Berries(blue/black/rasp/straw), Veggies, some Fruit, and Lean Meats/Fish. Would be it too much cheating if I were to still stick with a 2-3 small glasses a milk a day? I’m pretty new to paleo still, but very much would like to undergo this eating lifestyle for overall healthiness, and fitness.

Maybe, it depends on your reaction to the departure from strict Paleo, but as you haven’t been eating Paleo until now it’s pretty irrelevant.

Look at Mark Sisson’s Primal diet, that allows some dairy.

I’m afraid the deal making is hard to handle, “I want to eat Paleo except for the bits I don’t want to”.
Do Paleo or don’t. Change it if you want to. Eat Paleo + marshmallows and Coca Cola if you like, no skin off my nose unless you assume that the results you achieved will apply to others and start preaching that version.
You’re an experiment with a sample size of 1. Find out what works for you.

Someone can come along and post something more caring.

Personally I think you’re fine.  Enjoy dairy.  When, if ever, it becomes a problem, cut back or eliminate.

Thanks for the replies, and advice. Always nice to hear others knowledge, and opinions. Metric/canis_nerdus.

Just recently I switched to organic, non harmonized almond milk and going to see how this works.

dairy is good, best thing you can ingest if your were starving to death.  Never-mind, that.  You approach is good, give it a month see if it works.  Chocolate milk is a super food when it comes to post workout, great balance of Protein to Carbs, I hate the taste, but still drink it.  Plus vitamin D, calcium etc etc.  So what you are doing is super, yogurt is great too, good stuff for your gut.  And cottage cheese, casein protein is tops for night time protein levels, helps stop body from eating your gains.
