View Full Version : dairy question

From my understanding we need 3 servings a day of dairy. Since I started I have been having a 1 ounce mozzarella stick and 2 8 ounce cups of fat free milk. Is this enough?

Cheese is not counted as dairy but as meat in this plan. Per the Revised Phase I List in the FAQ
(2 cups allowed daily, including yogurt)
Low-fat milk (fat-free and 1%)
Fat-free 1/2 & 1/2 (less than 2 tablespoons)
Low-fat plain, vanilla, or sucralose-containing soy milk (4 grams of fat or less per 8 ounce serving). Be sure the product does not contain high fructose corn syrup
1% or fat-free buttermilk
Fat-free plain yogurt .
so you are fine. It's a matter of quantity, not number of servings.

Do we need to take in the same amount of dairy in P2?

Yes, we do. Getting enough dairy each day is an important part of this way of eating.

I thought it was 2 servings not three - even the extract with the list of what's considered dairy starts with "2 cups allowed daily".

I thought it was two - three, but I do not have access to the SBD website to verify.

i believe it's 2-3 cups daily in phases 2 and 3.
