Okay got it. Why do we need to choose between yogurt and cheese? Yogurt is dairy, cheese is protein. On WW you can have both, and I do.

I eat Wegman's plain lowfat yogurt. If I am using it to cook I'll use Fage, but I have to use less. It is much higher in calories, so 1/2 cup = 1 milk.

Hard cheese is 3/4 oz per protein exchange and adds a lot to a recipe. Why give it up?

I'll skip the ice cream.

1. My favorite yogurt is Kefir. it only comes with 2 %. I wish it came fat free.
I also like Fage ft free greek yogurt.

2. I hardly eat hard cheese. My favorite is soy cheese.
I like riccota cheese very much and also cottage cheese.

3. I eat healthy choice fudge bars (1 point each). I buy them at Costco.
I also LOVE (lately I have it every evening) McDonald's vanilla yogurt Ice-Cream. (3 points)

I rarely eat ice cream. I generally select a plain yogurt so I can substitute it in my recipes. For variety, I will add fruit, flavorings such as vanilla, rum extract vanilla, etc. and or nuts or granola.
I love cheeses so I will eat all types. I will often eat a soy cheese to reduce fat content,

I do use some cheese if it's WW or fat free but I cannot stand yogurt but I am going to try and eat some and get use to it. May have to hold my nose. lol

I don't do ice cream unless its the WW, skinny cow or the fit and active which I just posted about.

JB10 do you have an Aldies in your area?

My daughter and I found what is called fit and Active brands of things and one of them was the exact thing as the skinny cow with the same points for 1/2 the price.

They don't have the pb and chocotale but they have vanilla and choc. Just as tasty. They also have bars and other items that rank the same points as WW but so much cheaper.

We were thrilled to find them to save us money. They have several ice cream items as well as cheese and other things too.
