Can I eat frozen yogurt and have it count as a dairy?

Is it sugar free? A lot of those places add a lot of junk you don't need to yogurt. I bought this Donvier frozen yogurt maker (manual, find them at the thrift store all time time). You put in regular sugar free yogurt, turn 10 times the first time, then turn 3-4 times every 3 minutes for 20 min. It comes out like real frozen yogurt.

We have a frozen yogurt place here that serves FF Sf frozen yogurt that I love. My COD says to get a small and count it as a starch.

what do you do to yogurt that makes it change froma dairy to a starch when you make it frozen. I tried freezing the regular yogurt and I didn't like it much either. I don't want to do anything worng and hurt myself, but I am tired of cheese everyday and if I can do frozen yogurt for my diary that would help.

Shennie--thanks for asking--I wondered, too why it counts as a starch instead of a dairy when frozen. I like yogurt, but not cheese so it's not a big deal but I would Love to have frozen every once in a while for the "treat" that it is!

Everyone is doing soooo awesome. Shennie my original goal is 150 but now you are inspiring me to go to the 140's--I'm only 5'6 so it should be doable.

I'm going to take a look at frozen yogurt when I buy groceries today, see if I can make sense of this.

That is a good question I never thought about it. I would like to know also.

You have to use some kind of aerating device like an ice cream machine or frozen yogurt would be like a lil ice cube. I'd venture to say most "frozen yogurts" don't have that much active cultures and have lots of added sugar (cold stuff needs more flavoring so youc an taste it). If real yogurt companies (like Dannon, Yoplait) made sugar free fat free frozen yogurt, I'd be less wary about it.

I am 5'6.5" (DBF swears I am only 5'6", but I am that extra .5, I promise :lol: ) but my original goal was actually 155 because I was thinking that was baout the size i was after highschool and I was fine witht hat size, but I forgot to account for the fat I now have compared to the lean muscle of then :?: . I really though 150 would be skinny and I am now seeing it is not, it feels good to have pants hang off of me that useto be tight and to fit dresses, I never thought I could, but I am bottom heavy and have huge legs that just don't belong to the rest of my body so I know I will have to tone up eventually, but I woudl rather do that during stabilizationa nd maintenance because WL is hard enough without the recalculating of portions due to weightlifting. I really want to try to get to about 135 and I have until April 2 to finish my WL weeks so I will go as far as a I can, but I want my "real" weight to be about 140 after I start toning and reintroduce salt to my life in moderation. YOU CAN DEFINITLY DO IT!!!!

Mary thanks for the advice, I am going to look and see if they have FF, SF frozen yogurt and compare it to the regular and see what it says. I am assuming that the amount of calcium would be important too, right

Thanks Shennie--140 sounds like a great goal. I was 150 when I met my DH and felt great. Since I am still 23 pounds away I guess I should see how I feel in mid-May (my goal time) then see is going lower works for me. We are going back to AZ for a visit June 1, and I would LOVE to shock them all--haha.

also look out for specials at your center were you can get coupons to use to buy more weeks and hang in there for another $3/week special. I haven't "paid" for any of my weeks since December 8th...they are all coupons combined witht he $3 week deal.

PS. June 1 is my birthday (although the IRS says it's the 11th, but that is another story:dizzy: ) so just in case you want to send me a present;)

Will do--lol--you should get 2 gifts--1 for each birthday! I will be 36 on May 25th so even though 38 pounds is my LAWL goal my personal goal is at least "36 pounds by age 36" . IF I am in an 8, I am splurging on some Lucky jeans--I think I will have eraned them! My luck I'll eventually get ther and they will look horrible on me--haha.

Hey Boo'smom - my Bday is on May 24th.....another gemini

I think it is very important to gift yourself for significant losses. I just gifted myself with a costly gortex jacket - not really cute or sexy - but practical, and seeing as I live in a rainforest, I will no longer have any reason not to go out in the rain.

I was going to wait for the 30lb mark for a giftie - I can't seem to break 156 - yaargh!
:mad:

I'd give my right arm to be 156--WTG. DH is doing LAWL with me so we are planning a cruise in June as a gift to US!!! No kids, no worries, just us looking good ;)

boo~ were going to cruise in July. I plan to have these legs toned by then and there will be no cover-ups for me this year.

woohoo--HOW EXCITING!! Where are you going? We still haven't decided--I am a terrible decision maker--ugh. As of last night we are flip flopping between a Caribbean cruise, or just all inclusive to Cancun or Cozumel--I really am bad. DH says just pick one!! I have a fear of committing ($$) in case I don't reach my goal b/c I refuse to go if I am not thinner. Like you, I want no cover-ups, no T-shirts--just a decent suit. I know after my c-section I would never attempt a bikini (regardless of weight) but a cute tankini would be awesome.

Okay, here is the scoop on the frozen yogurt. My grocery store had LF, but no SF. The low fat was a whopping 200 calories for 1/2 a cup. Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia was a little lower, 170, but still, this is unacceptable. Most SF, FF ice cream is bettween 80 & 90 calories for 1/2 a cup, as is skim milk. With the ice cream you are getting a lot more fillers and less calcium than the milk, but still for an occasional treat, I cannot see why FF SF ice cream cannot be considered a dairy. I am going to.
