Depends on the low carb plan. It certainly would not be OK on Atkins induction but would be OK on South Beach which is not a low carb plan but a SLOW carb plan for the first Phase.

Summering, are you back on South Beach or on Atkins or another low carb plan? In South Beach you certainly can have cottage cheese and yoghurt on Phase I but not on Atkins at first. Let me know so I can answer your questions better.

To tell you the truth I have not figured that part out yet . I have done both plans in the past and both work ... but for some reason once I say to myself I'm doing induction or phase 1 I blow it , so I thought I'd try to go with what I know using both plans . Does that make any sense ?

I really don't see how you can combine the two.

Atlkis allows saturated fat; South Beach limits it.
Atkins keeps carbs to 10 in Induction: South Beach does not limit carbs but you eat slow carbs.
Atkins does not allow milk on Induction; South Beach does.
Atkins counts carbs: South Beach doesn't.

South Beach is NOT a low carb diet, particularly after Phase I, which is why it's a separate Forum from Low Carb and Atkins.

I'm sure this hasn't helped you very much. Sorry!

Summering, there are other very good low carb diets. I'm on protein power and you could certainly eat either yogurt or cottage cheese on that from day one. You might want to check out a book called "Living the Low Carb Life" by Johnny Bowden. He reviews all the Low Carb diet plans, tells you which ones are based on solid science, which ones aren't, and gives you some hints about whether it might fit with your lifestyle or not. Another Low Carb diet plan I'm fond of, originally called the GO diet, but renamed the Four Corners Diet, actually requires that you consume a cup of cultured milk products a day (buttermilk, yogurt, or kefir). I try to actually have some everyday but not necessarily a whole cup. Hope that has been helpful.

Yogurt never stopped me from losing, but cottage cheese is a little high. Before I figured out I am really allergic to dairy I ate about 1/3 of a cup. I don't eat any lately, since It really makes me sick. Just watch the amount and you should be ok. Judy

So, if you are on Atkins when do you get to have yogurt? What step on OWL
is it on? I just ask because there is someone I know who is on the plan and
I saw her eating wasa crisps with laughing cow cheese on it. And I asked "You can eat that on Atkins?" and she said "yes, in a few weeks you can".

I'm comfused. I thought it was first more veggies, then dairy, then bean, then,low sugar fruit, then low carb grains.

am I wrong?
