    How about yogurt

    i didi a search for yogurt and i did find that people had it in there meals , so i am guessing that it is okay to eat fat free yogurt. Is this right or not.

    also if some one can point me to the the carb meal cycleing artical it would be helpful, cuse for the moment being i know nothing about it thanks

    Yogurt is fine depending on you ultimate goals. Raw plain yogurt would be optimal without all the added sugars and fruit. You can add fresh fruit yourself to make it taste better. Yogurt is partly predigested by friendly bacteria, so they are well tolerated even by people who do not have sufficient lactase in their intestines to digest milk (lactose intolerant). It also help maintain healthy bacterial flora in the intestines.

    check the stickies at the top of the forum. TP's Carb Cycling link is in there

    I think it's fine providing you buy the fat free, no sugar added varieties...assuming you tolerate aspartame well.

    If you're on a pre-contest diet I would avoid it altogether due to the sugars found in most dairy products...otherwise...ie. a normal cutting diet you're fine.

    Silohouette, that the one i buy.

    it dosn't say no sugure added but it has aspartame witch usally means that it has no sugure added. lol

    unless they are trying to add as much unwanted stuff into their yogurt.

    thanks

    Well no sugar added doesn't mean no sugar, the lactose content in yoghurt is still rather considerable.

    Peace.

    CarbControl by Dannon is pretty good. I think there are maybe 3 grams of sugar? Not sure. Made with Splenda though.

    Yes, taste great with 3 grams of sugar.. but you just can't eat one container.. it's addicting

    Best way to go is with Home made LF or FF yogurt

    Some non-diet foods contain aspartame as well.

    I like plain yogurt as a mayo substitute. You can make your own too from milk, never tried it but I saw a recipe once. Very easy.

    I usually eat the light Yoplait, but today I noticed something new on their website...it's called Ultra Carb yogurt (or something like that). There's only 8 g of carbs. Has anyone seen this? I can't wait to try it.

    I agree....sooo hard to just have 1/2 cup or so of this stuff...I need to have at entire 750ml JUMBO tub of it to be remotely satified...although it definately makes me feel like I'm having dessert...especially the Vanilla and Butterscotch dessert flavors made by Silhouette

    I buy the single servings-and then only bring that amount for my lunch but I know what you meal Fit Freak-I could easily eat a huge container. Have you tried the 'source' flavors yet?

    Anyone eat quark? It's very good with fruit or berries.
    It has lots of protein and little fat.
