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.

Do you mean sugar as in carb content or as in actual sugar? If you eat yoghurt, only eat the unsweetened stuff. Most every brand contains a plain version. As for whether it's Paleo, strictly speaking dairy is not Paleo, it's Primal, but... (more)

If you don't have problems with dairy, yogurt is an excellent food. Even though I'm lactose intolerant, I tolerate yogurt with no side effects. I either make my own or buy plain greek yogurt and eat it post workout most mornings. I've lost 60... (more)

It depends on YOUR version of Primal/Paleo. It depends on the source of the Greek Yogurt, if YOUR version of Primal/Paleo includes dairy.

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)

Sorry, but I'm going to nitpick. I think the word "allowed" creates or reflects the wrong mindset. I can think of at least two alternative approaches that people take in defining paleo diet. 1) You have a health goal. So you consider the... (more)

Hmm.. I wonder if it's because they strain Greek yogurt so its a more concentrated product? Protein levels would be higher than the Goat I would think. There are specific proteins, alpha-casein, alpha s1-casein and beta-casein, that are known to... (more)

Sour cream is re-pasteurized to stop the fermentation process before it is sold in stores. So both providing beneficial gut flora is unfortunately incorrect. However making your own yogurt is really easy by simply adding a tiny bit of live yogurt... (more)

I'm guessing they start with skim milk then add whatever amount of cream to achieve any desired percentage of fat in the final product. That'd be for manufacturing efficiency. Also, I don't think that store bought yogurt contains zero lactose. If... (more)

Well this depends, are you interested in following a paleo type diet for health or do you want to follow a diet that has strict dogma and little room for variation? If you tolerate dairy well and enjoy it, than I say absolutely eat the yogurt. If... (more)

Kefir is ridiculously easy to make; you just pour milk over kefir grains (not a grain, but a culture of bacteria and yeast), and let it sit overnight with a covering that lets it breathe but keeps bugs out. I make it every day, and it does wonder... (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)

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)

I think this is one of those "how do you feel" sort of things. There's not really any tests for it that you can take to say "Hey, you've got the optimal levels of gut bacteria". So, if you're feeling better, keep on doing what you're doing. ... (more)
