How often can I eat yogurt

I know there are a lot of discussions on yogurt out there, but none on how frequently one can/ does eat it. I make my own homemade yogurt and ferment it for 24 hours to get rid of some of the lactose. Since I do this, how safe is it for me to eat it since it is still dairy? (yes, I get that it is not 100% paleo, but I am more on the Primal scope). When I make a batch, it makes 7, 6oz containers. If it was up to me, I would have it every morning for breakfast but don't want it to sabotage any weight loss efforts. Advice?

I eat yogurt, quite a few days a week as dessert. Mine is straight from a farm, full fat, pastured, organic, and made with raw milk. It actually looks almost yellowish instead of the pure winter white you see at the grocery store, funny how home made stuff always looks different! Anyway, I have no problems with weight, yogurt neither makes me gain or lose. Less than a cup a day isnt really a big deal.

Here is what Mark Sisson says, read this and make up your own mind.

I eat homemade yogurt everyday. It's my main and sometimes only protein source for the day.

I second @Team Oberg, make it with raw-full fat milk if you can, and you are in the clear

Just try it out. :) If you (in total) don't eat more than you spend, you shouldn't gain weight. It's good to test for a week of 3 or 4 how you are without dairy. If it doesn't matter, you can add it to your diet (in moderation), especially the yoghurt/fatty creams.

I noticed some weird reactions at first, not being able to drink wine & dairy stuff (cheese) at the same time, but since I regularly eat raw milk's cheese, I haven't noticed problems in that area anymore.

So just keep an eye on how you react, and relax & enjoy. ;)
