I love low-fat yogurt and eat some every day. Recently I was told it is not healthy to consume too much yogurt. Does anybody know about this? If it's true, what sort of side effects could eating yogurt have? I always figured it was a good low cal, low fat, high calcium snack.

Re: Yogurt


Any food can be unhealthy if you eat too much of it. And different people have different reactions to different foods. Did this source say just how much was too much? For people with milk intolerances, any amount is too much. For some people, it's the main source of their protein. Somewhere in between is probably right for you, as long as you aren't having any problems with it.

Re: Yogurt

^ I agree. Instead of eating it plain maybe you could mix in some fresh fruit or granola. Just so you are consuming something else with it. Just a thought.

Re: Yogurt

Yes, too much of anything is not good, but I don't see how a little yogurt everyday is bad. But yogurt, like most dairy can cause mucus. But if you don't feel it, like in your throat or stuffy in your nose, and you feel okay, yogurt everyday should be fine.

Re: Yogurt

Yogurt lovers,

Check the ingredients on your yogurt. Most have some form of sweetener.

Dannon's Activia lists the ingredients: low fat milk, strawberry, fructose syrup, sugar, etc.

Since they split the sweeteners into two sources (fructose syrup and sugar), they didn't have to list the sweetener as the first ingredient (by weight).

Just know that you are eating a lot of high-glycemic sweetener in most cases. The ill effects of too much sugar are well documented.

Hope this helped. Dan
