The yogurt diet for weight loss

Yogurt diet is a very effective fast weight loss diet that is pretty strict, hence use it with caution!

In recent years we get a lot of information stating that dairy products and particularly whole milk are unnecessary and even harmful because of the lactose.

Many people believe that and stop using milk and dairy products or switch to alternative plant based milk.

Is Whole Milk Yogurt Bad for You?

And while there is nothing wrong about doing that, we should also know that there is nothing dangerous or unhealthy about drinking whole milk and consuming whole dairy products.

As a matter of fact, whole milk products contain less lactose than the low fat ones. Some professional dietologist even suggest including whole dairy products into their clients’ diets.

They claim that you can only get the sufficient amount of calcium - the essential nutrient - from whole milk products.

Lactose Intolerance and Yogurt Diet

Before you start this diet, if you are one of those people who are afraid of the lactose, you should know that unless you come from the society where dairy is not the part of the food culture, you will only benefit from natural and organic dairy product as a part of a balanced diet.

Milk and milk products contain many necessary vitamins and nutrients such as vitamin D, A, B12, and calcium.

In Western European and North American countries dairy was and still remains an essential part of a healthy diet.

Before You Begin...

This yogurt diet ( you may substitute yogurt for kefir, buttermilk, or similar to those) is rather strict and if you start feeling bloated or will have other gastrointestinal symptoms you should stop the diet and go back to your normal eating habits as that might be a sign of lactose intolerance.

It is best to cleanse your digestive and respiratory system before going on this diet. 

Use only plain unsweetened yogurt, avoid using salt or sugar. You may add fresh green vegetables and a little honey to your daily ration if you have to.

The duration of this yogurt diet is 7 days and you will be able to lose up to 10 pounds of body fat!
