Milk = bad. Yogurt?
« on: January 18, 2016, 01:06:45 PM »
I eschew milk and cheese entirely.  That's an easy decision.

But what about yogurt?  Should that also be avoided, or it is somehow different i.e. not bad like milk is?  I can tell you empirically I don't feel crappy and look crappy after eating yogurt like I do after drinking milk

Yogurt is still a form of dairy, and therefore not Paleo. Almost all dairy (save for butter, in some cases) is not on the Paleo food list.

The only difference between milk and yogurt is that the lactose in milk has been converted to lactic acid in yogurt. This makes it more tart, prevents spoilage and digestible for the large parts of the adult world that can not digest lactose -only babies were supposed to drink milk so babies all over the world can.
So yogurt has the same properties as milk, just spoils less and is more digestible. All other properties, as far as I can tell, apply to both.

I'll tell you what though since having posted this question a long time ago I haven't touched yogurt for 6 months and I look and feel great compared to back when I did eat yogurt. I'm not saying that yogurt is the worst thing in the world, definitely not near as bad as milk or cheese, but it is not Paleo, and now having given it up I can see that it is better to avoid.

Try non dairy yogurt like coconut milk yogurt (my fav); you can also make your own non dairy yogurt. there are many recipes available on the web. A simple google search will get your there. So Delicious makes a coconut milk yogurt; I haven't checked out the ingredients so I don't know if it's paleo, but it's worth checking out.

Or just stick to not having yogurt, since that seems to be working well.

This. I used to make my own kefir and drink at least 1/2 liter (0.13 gallon ? ) a day. I feel better without it, in full honesty.
