I've been paleo for a few months now -- not to lose weight, but to maintain and get off the carb rollercoaster. I've never been overweight; in fact, I'm very lean. I'm 5'9 and can happily subsist on 1200-1400 calories a day. I'm pretty much... (more)

Greek yogurt is very low calorie and filling. I find I can eat as much of as I want without gaining weight. Just like Cottage cheese. I'm usually full after about 5-6 spoonfuls though! just my n=1, however.

Yogurt is considered primal, not paleo, which is basically immaterial if you tolerate it. Get plain full-fat yogurt...anything added is just extra sugar. If you have problems with lactose intolerance you might consider trying goat or sheep milk... (more)

Vanilla beans really need to be extracted with something, like alcohol or simmering in a liquid. If you're okay with the tiny bit of alcohol in an extract, you can do this yourself at home with your nice beans and some vodka, rum, bourbon, etc. ... (more)

Eating greek yogurt kept me from lossing weight. It didn't make me gain though either.

If you are doing the elimination version of paleo, you'll want to hold out on dairy until you make sure it works within your diet. Yogurt is probably one of the best dairy options besides grass-fed butter, so if it jives with your needs, go for... (more)

Aside from it not being classical paleo food, is there anything that is not great about it? It's around 80% saturated fat, and the stuff I buy (jalna) is organic.

As long as you can tolerate dairy, there are three things to consider: Home-made kefir, fermented for 24-30 hours, is 5x-10x more potent than any yogurt. Goat/sheep dairy are more tolerable than cow dairy, even for those without dairy... (more)

In general, kefir--either dairy or water--has many more species of beneficial flora than yogurt. The marketing of "16 million" doesn't touch on how many species. I've read that good yogurt will have 2-5 species (with large total counts) while... (more)

You might try getting a grassfed or at least organic brand. But at the very least go full fat!
