Is Yogurt Good on a Weight Loss Diet? Q&A of The Week

Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. Today's question was sent to me via Facebook and it's regarding yogurt on a weight loss diet.

Hey Coach,

I was wondering if I should add yogurt to my diet. I'm doing your fat loss program and it's going well so far, but I heard that yogurt is good for weight loss. What do you think.

Yogurt has health benefits but it has no direct link to weight loss/fat loss, at least none that I've read or heard about. With that being said, some yogurts do have a good amount of protein and yogurt is also good for your digestive system. So, indirectly it can help you in your fat loss/weight loss goals. I would be careful though as some yogurts are extremely high in sugar/carb content. Read the labels and choose wisely.
