Recently, I've found some REALLY good light yogurt. Apple turnover yogplait, yum. : )

I'm eating two things of it every day, and supposedly, eating dairy and cardio helps with six packs.

I'm wondering if anyone here has had much experience with the dairy-helps-you-lose-weight idea.

I much rather perfer the common-sense-helps-you-lose-weight idea. I like yogurt but I wouldn't eat it everyday, its high in fat and depending on the yogurt can be high in sodium.

I haven't heard of the dairy-helps-you-lose-weight idea but I'm sure it exists out there somewhere, everything when it comes to losing weight exists out there somewhere.

I enjoy yogurt, either by itself or mixed into a smoothie. The generic Wal-Mart brand I have in front of me is 6oz, 80 calories, 0g fat, 110mg sodium (5%DV), and 7g protein. Granted, it is "Lite," but the taste is great and you can't beat 7g protien for 80 calories as a quick snack.

I've read about one or two studies saying dairy can aid in weight-loss, but it wil do no good of you drink whole milk and other high-fat dairy products.

But to each his/her own.

I eat yogurt in smoothies too... soo good, *mouth waters* and I find depending on the brand the low-fat yogurt tastes the same and sometimes better then the regular yogurt.

Like Joel said, don't expect to lose weight if you are drinking/eating high fat dairy products like cheese and whole milk.

Sorry to go off-topic here, but what are smoothies ?
I've read about them a couple of times on this forum but I still don't know how to make them or what's (normally) in it.

Eating yoghurts and doing a cardio workout is not going to get you a six pack.
Firstly i believe you need to have a certain percentage of body fat in order for six packs to be visible. If you want a six pack, you need to consider your fat percentage, you need to do ab excercises and do some weight training and need to draw up a healthy balanced diet.

Cownose will probably one of the better and more informed people to discuss this with.

Only the greatest invention in food. There are many different varities of types of smoothies you can make, ones we are referring to here are with yogurt. Usually they consist of:

  • Yogurt + fruit (best if frozen), mix in blender
  • Yogurt + fruit (best if frozen) + milk, mix in blender
  • Yogurt + juice + fruit, mix in blender
  • Anything else I haven't thought of


You can also add things such as protien powder to smoothies.

My favorites are, frozen banana and strawberries with milk and lf/nf vanilla yogurt or frozen mixed berries, with milk and lf/nf strawberry yogurt or orange juice with ice and frozen banana, but the latter is an orange julius.

If the yogurt is fat free watch out, cause it will be high in suger, some yogurt are like 6 grams of protein and 20 grams or carbs cause of the high suger.

I prefere cottage cheese, 106 cals, 15 grams of protein, 6 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fat.

Thats why you read the container before you read it

I'm not really a fan of cottage cheese...

I haven't been able to find a decent fat free yogurt myself, either. I'm not a huge fan of aspartame, and I've yet to see a brand sweetened with Splenda.

What I do now is buy fat free plain yogurt; I add Sugar-Twin brown sugar substitute (maltodextrin) and throw in some cinnamon, raisins and walnuts.

It can double as dip for veggies and nachos. Plain, or add a bit of dry onion soup mix.

Ok, thanks for the information. Seems worth a try, instead of just drinking milk all the time...

Depends on the breakdown on the type of fat; does the label on the container give any info in regards to saturated, mono-unsaturated, and poly-unsaturated?

Hey, I just looked up the contents of my yogurt, and it's awesome; hardly any sugar. 6oz, 10%DV carbs, and 5g protein.
: )

It's really good...it hardly even tastes like yogurt. : )

Maltodextrin is the biggest scam.

It's a carbohydrate made from the sugars maltose and dextrose, and it actually has a higher glycemic index than table sugar (107 vs. 100, respectively).

As far as I'm concerned, the sugar in flavored yogurts is far more of a problem than the fat. If you want to avoid the fat, then get low-fat or nonfat yogurt--but stick with the plain stuff. The flavored yogurts are typically loaded with sugar--Stonyfield Farms (the better type) vanilla has around 25 grams of sugar, and Breyers (the worst) has around 44.

You might want to try kefir too--the liquid yogurt preferred by the Russians and Poles (supposedly taken from the Mongol formula for koumiss--the alcholic, fermented mare's milk).

Kefir, however, is non-alcoholic, and made from cow's milk.

In addition, goat's milk yogurt is really good, and typically easier for most people to digest, as it lacks the specific casien-type protein found in cow's milk that many homo sapiens have a hard time with.

Dairy fermented with beneficial probiotics is definitely superior to ordinary dairy.

My Wal-Mart brand yogurt only has 14g carbs with 7g sugar, but it is sweetened with aspartame. Tastes fine to me, though.

Kefir is awesome too, has a much richer taste to me(use to have it a lot in Germany), very enjoyable.

You mean the organic Greek yogurt? Sounds OK to me...

Update: I've been eating lots of yogurt lately, and I think I've become much stronger, based on arm wrestling things at school, and my max benchpress is up, as well as my curls and even my abs!

Thanks.
