  • Does foods like cheese, yogurt and double-cream increase bodyfat?

    I don't seem to have a 6-pack any-more when I added cheese, yoghurt and double cream into my diet. I used to have a 6 - 6.5% body-fat 2 months ago and now, it is increased to 8.9%. I seem to have more cold often maybe due to dairy?

    I normally eat 3 - 4 eggs cooked in butter, 2 - 3 black pudding and a grapefruit for breakfast. Chicken thighs, avocado and some strawberries for lunch. Dinner could be a steak, fish or pork with vegetables.

    I drink plenty of water, herb teas and sometimes, organic coffee with breakfast.

    I do Strong-lift 3 x weekly and no cardio. I do swimmimg and bike riding on weekend.

    Does dairy gives you a less chance of getting a 6-pack and getting more colds?

    I remember Mark Sisson wasn't a fan of eating too much dairy and it is that why?

    Some people don't react well to dairy-experiment and see what works for you. The cold could just be you getting conjested from it, drop it for a few weeks and see what happens.

      How come butter is okay, but not cheese or yogurt?

        You might be lactose intolerent- that shows up in most milk products, but not butter. Also- it may be modern dairy that is the issue. I know I eat too much of it and it doesn't do me any favors. However, when I was snarfing raw cream and raw cheeses, I was fine. My blog exploring the beginning stages of learning how to homestead.

          6 to 6.5 is shredded. That's close to BB show BF levels. I find it hard to believe at 8-9 you aren't showing abs. Are those BF measurements right?

          Most people find it pretty difficult to maintain that low of a BF and that low isn't required for a six pack. I know everyone is different but something doesn't add up. Sounds to me like you were around 10-11 and jumped up to teens from excess calories.
