I saw this little gem, research reports that calcuim in dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt act as fat burner that can boost weight loss by increasing the fat breakdown in fat cells. Michael Zemel, Professor of Nutrition and Medicin at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville reports (Obesity Research, April 2004; vol 12 pp 582-590.. http://www.fatfreekitchen.com/weightloss /fat-burning-foods.html I swear by this, this man has a good point I have dropped half my body weight and eaten yoghurt and milk product daily regularly 4 years.

Try non-fat plain or vanilla yogurt or kefir and make smoothies with it, good time to add your berries! I don't do dairy for health reasons, so today I am trying Whole Soy & Co. Soy Yogurt. No high fructose corn syrup there! This container is strawberry, and it uses Organic Evaporated Cance Juice (Natural sugar) as its sweetener. The point of yogurt is mostly the probiotics, plus the calcium and other benefits.
I love yogurt! Well, yogurt that doesn't have any high fructose corn syrup in it (which is hard to find!). I don't like it plain. I've tried many times to eat plain yogurt..can't do it. Although I saw someone's recipe for a greek dip..that sounds good! I sometimes take those pills for the "friendly bacteria" that plain yogurt gives...

It is important to look for active cultures in the ingredients.
Active cultures keep our intestinal tract healthy and this results in total better health and immunity.
I have been eating Dannon Activa because it has intestinal probiotics.
I also buy plain yogurt with active cultures. I drain it overnight and then make a greek dip by adding shredded cucumber, one TBL. olive oil, 2 cloves of minced garlic, juice of 1/2 fresh lemon and some minced dill.
