Yogurt that fits the nutrition profile, and how much dairy is too much?
In my quest to go approx. 50/30/20 fat/protein/carb (or 60/30/10 or 60/20/20), I have been struggling when it comes to foods that are often quite a bit higher in protein than fat, like cottage cheese, and many full fat yogurts. However, I found a yogurt that comes close to fitting the profile and tastes good too! The Greek Gods (The Greek Gods) plain traditional yogurt has 11gm fat per serving, 4gm protein and 5gm carb.....thought I would pass it on......I can only find it at Kroger so far (Cincinnati area)......I am always looking for suggestions on the best way to meet that nutrition profile.....and how much dairy is too much?
What's wrong with the Greek Gods yogurt? Just because you're aiming for certain daily macros does not mean that all your foods have to contain those macros, as well. If you want it to be higher in fat, add mac nuts to the snack. If you want it to be higher in protein, use it as a sauce for meat. If you're looking for it to be lower in carbs (which I guess is the issue?) Then maybe ditch some other carbs that are lurking in your diet, if you really want the yogurt.
Personally, I can eat a lot of yogurt. If I let myself, I'll eat about 2 full cups of it a day. However, I usually eat 0% Stonyfield or Fage, and have just been transitioning over to 2%. But, I'm not low-carb by any means. ^__^ Eat it, if you like it. It's "too much" when your digestion is suffering because of it, or if you feel gross.
