Re: question about dairy

i am trying to lose a bit of weight, so i guess i am examining the things that might be holding me back nutritionally.
i have since started substituting the yogurt for fruit with a few tablespoons of low-fat plain yorgurt or quark cheese (which is amazing and very filling in small amounts) i am not sure if this is better nutritionally... i usually try and keep it to low GI fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, and grapes (i have read that grapes are low GI but other sources say no, not 100% sure). usually if i have a cup or two of fruit with the yorgurt i feel satisfied, whereas if it was just yorgurt, i would be able to eat a couple of cups of it alone at one time! if any one has any opinion on whether this is a better solution feel free to share.... i know the yorgurt has protein going for it, but there is important stuff in the fruit too..
ps. thanks for all the response, its nice to know i am not alone in my dairy-love!
