How often can I eat yogurt

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 23, 2012 at 10:08 AM

I know there are a lot of discussions on yogurt out there, but none on how frequently one can/ does eat it. I make my own homemade yogurt and ferment it for 24 hours to get rid of some of the lactose. Since I do this, how safe is it for me to eat it since it is still dairy? (yes, I get that it is not 100% paleo, but I am more on the Primal scope). When I make a batch, it makes 7, 6oz containers. If it was up to me, I would have it every morning for breakfast but don't want it to sabotage any weight loss efforts. Advice?

I live in Europe (the Netherlands), you can buy local organic 'farmers cheese', which is unpasteurized cheese, on markets..

We are actually stationed in northern Virginia, by DC, and there are so many farmers markets here, I feel spoiled. It will be a sad day when we have to pack up an start over again. Anyways, I have met one farmer who brings down amish dairy from Pennsylvania. I guess it is just a matter of finding little family farms and seeking them out. Lauguage barrier can be a problem in other countires though.

We have a yogurt maker. I use 1 liter of full fat organic, grass fed milk w/ a Yogourmet culture starter. It does have small amounts of sucrolose, sooo I'm not sure if it is the best option out there, but I know it is way better than what is at the stores. I just follow the directions on the package. My husband has chrons disease, so we let it ferment for min 24 hours. I then add things like berries, vanilla, stevia if needed, etc to make different flavors

Thanks! I am a MDA avid reader! I know w/ Primal, dairy can be ok, but I still just didn't know HOW much. I think I will play around with this. Also, we are currently stationed in Germany and have no idea where to start to look for raw dairy products. Where do you get yours?

I eat yogurt, quite a few days a week as dessert. Mine is straight from a farm, full fat, pastured, organic, and made with raw milk. It actually looks almost yellowish instead of the pure winter white you see at the grocery store, funny how home made stuff always looks different! Anyway, I have no problems with weight, yogurt neither makes me gain or lose. Less than a cup a day isnt really a big deal.

Here is what Mark Sisson says, read this and make up your own mind.

I eat homemade yogurt everyday. It's my main and sometimes only protein source for the day.

I second @Team Oberg, make it with raw-full fat milk if you can, and you are in the clear

Just try it out. :) If you (in total) don't eat more than you spend, you shouldn't gain weight. It's good to test for a week of 3 or 4 how you are without dairy. If it doesn't matter, you can add it to your diet (in moderation), especially the yoghurt/fatty creams.

I noticed some weird reactions at first, not being able to drink wine & dairy stuff (cheese) at the same time, but since I regularly eat raw milk's cheese, I haven't noticed problems in that area anymore.

So just keep an eye on how you react, and relax & enjoy. ;)
