Yogurt while cutting
Need some advice. Read this article this morning regarding yogurt and its positive effects on fat burning. http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...th_yogurt_dc_1.
I had read Dr. D's thread which said yogurt was a good antibiotic, but couldn't find any other information on the board. Does anyone routinely eat yogurt? I was thinking of adding it as part of my lunch in place of fruit and throwing it in with a cup or half-cup of cottage cheese. I think the sugar in the yogurt would be about equal to the sugar from the fruit, so I wouldn't be picking up any simple carbs. Normally when I cut I avoid sugars, even most fruit. Any advice/experience would be appreciated.

yogurt is fine, but I prefer fat free or 1% fat milk and cottage cheese. Different strokes...

Ex, thanks for getting back to me. I am going to do the yogurt thing once a day, half cup at lunch w/ cottage cheese, for a week and try it out. I have been doing the cottage cheese with fat-free, sugar free pudding made with fat free milk and 2 scoops protein powder. It is delicious, especially the chocolate, but a very high calorie (like 400 a serving) snack. It is great for a bulk.
I also tried the three servings of almonds a day you recommended a while back and it seemed to help keep off the fat while adding quality calories. I have gained around ten pounds over the past 6-8 weeks without appearing to gain much fat. Good post!

Yogurt is awesome for cutting. Try Dannon's carb control. It has 3 carbs, 6 g's of protein and like 3 g of fat. Only 70 cals and it taste damn good. I toss a spoonful of splenda in mine (doenst really need it) and enjoy. Try the smoothies too. Great on the run snack. Fills ya up!

Is yogurt high GI or low GI? I looked it up on a GI chart and it said it was prettty low but it is mostly sugar. Is it because the sugar is fructose (not a high GI sugar)?

Yeah, but avoid the ones that have fruit on the bottom, as those contain high fructose. Instead, try the carb control or carb monitor yogurts. You get only 5gs of sugar and even a little more protein.Originally Posted by hypo

Yogurt itself is mostly lactose (which is a really low GI carb). The only reasone it would have fructose is if it has fruit added.Originally Posted by hypo
Plain yogurt with a little stevia and vanilla extract added in is delicious, and ridiculously healthy.

I just wrote my girl a diet and shes eating yogurt everyday.Originally Posted by hypo
Low-fat yogurt provides the most calcium for the least amount of calories and there are a lot of studies now coming out that prove that diets high in calcium accelerate fat loss. When yogurt is made, the bacterial cultures that are added to the milk break down some of the sugar lactose into lactic acid. The acidity and protein content slow down stomach emptying time.

I enjoy stonyfield farms chocolate underground yogurt with a scoop of ON chocolate protein.
Wow it's so good!
Also vanilla yogurt is really good for some reason i love to have it after breakfast.

Thanks to everyone for all the replies. I will definitely work some yogurt into my plans for the next few weeks.

Yeah, thanks for the replies. I thought fructose for some reason because I buy the fruit falvored ones :b. Lactose makes a lot more sense!
I will take a look at the labels on the low carb yogurts, but my body likes carbs, and as long as they're low GI I don't mind eating them

Artificially sweetened yogurt has a lower GI content than yogurt made from natural sources...Originally Posted by hypo
