I have a question regarding yoghurt drinks that contain bacillus acidophilus culture. For example, low fat drink that contains 0.5 g fat, approx 4 g lactose and 4 g protein per 100 g of product… would it be wise to incorporate it into meal plan during dieting, taking calories into consideration? I came across some studies stating that lactose inhibits fat breakdown. What is the II of such yoghurt-like drinks? Could I use it in protein+carb combos during dieting and bulking, or should such “liquid” dairy products be avoided altogether? I know about lactose issues and I am not lactose intolerant.
Yogurt has a high II. I wouldn’t use it
during dieting. But it would prob be ok
for a P+C meal when bulking.
I’d strongly recommend this stuff called
“kefir” sold at health food stores rather than any type of yogurt drink. It’s similar but has a much better macronutrient profile, having less carbs than protein.
Ext, Bill, thanks for your replies. Please, take a look at macronutrient profile I posted: 0.5 g fat, 4 g protein and carbs per 100 g of product. I am not talking here about some kind of sugar-filled-E-additive-gelatine-heaven yoghurt, this is pretty natural stuff. Yes, I know about kefir… you can find everything about it on respective .com site. Did you know that kefir by definition contains ethanol that is synthetized during the production process? Anyway, what is the general opinion about low fat but unsweetened dairy products - skip them or use them during dieting provided the calories are in check? Later…
