Dairy and fat loss

Answered on February 18, 2014
Created February 17, 2014 at 11:28 PM

I have lactose intolerance and cut it out for over a year. Recently I reintroduced some plain, organic greek yogurt 1x a week and have only had very minor problems, nothing bad.

Anyways, I am NOT wanting to gain weight and in fact want to loose/at least maintain fat and build muscle. I am 16yo, 110lbs, 14%BF, 5'5.5". I strength train 5x a week, power yoga 2x, HIIT 2-3x.

I think it might be in my head, but I feel like since I have started eating a bit of it every so often, I feel as if I am gaining pudge. Thoughts on this?

This is definitely true about dairy (specially milk and yogurt). Delicious no doubt, but also perfect for packing on the pounds.

In another post you wrote you have honey most days of the week. I would watch your sugar intake, including all sweets, and see how it affects your weight loss.

I eat no sugar, except some honey (a TBSP or so at a time, only a few days a week) and fruit, no more than one small piece a day (such as an apple or a banana). I also eat sweet potato a few days a week.

Based on your physical description of yourself you shouldn't be worried about the potential minor weight shift of eating a bit of yogurt. Some people gain or lose eating dairy - relax.

Some people retain more water with dairy for some reason. Try to limit it to 2-3 times per weak.

Dairy definitely keeps me from losing, and can cause weight gain.

How high is your sugar intake? (honey, white sugar, coconut sugar, molasses, it's all the same, etc) I found that sugars were causing me to gain weight, not high-fat foods like milk (unless you're drinking a lot of it).
