Food that helps cellulite reduction - yogurt

  • active milk ferments are cleansing the body out of toxins, and prevent its accumulation
  • low in calories
  • excellent for breakfast, or with salad
  • very good source of calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin or vitamin B2, iodine, vitamin B12, vitamin B5, zinc, potassium, protein and molybdenum
  • some yogurts contain live bacteria that are very beneficial for our health
Health benefits of yogurt:
  • significantly increases fat loss
    • In just 3 months, 16 obese men and women on a reduced calorie diet that included three daily portions of yogurt lost 61% more fat and 81% more abdominal fat than 18 obese subjects assigned to a diet with the same number of calories but little or no dairy products and low amounts of calcium.
    • Not only did those in the yogurt group lose more fat, especially around their waistlines, but they also retained more lean, muscle tissue than subjects on the yogurt-free diet.
    • adding one or two servings of yogurt to your daily diet can help you maximize loss of fat and minimize loss of muscle-the optimal outcome for any diet
  • lowers LDL cholesterol and raises HDL cholesterol
  • lowers body fat (by consuming calcium rich foods, including yogurt) - if you're tyring to lose weight, especially around the midsection, eating more calcium-rich foods, especially low fat dairy foods such as cow's milk, yogurt and kefir, may really help
  • boosts the body's fat burning after a meal - after 1 year of calcium diet, fat oxidation (burning) was 20 times higher in women eating the high calcium diet compared to those in the low-calcium control group (0.10 vs. 0.06 gram per minute).
  • prolongs life - yogurt that contains live bacterial cultures may help you to live longer, and may fortify your immune system
  • boosts immune response
  • boosts the body's ability to build bone
  • helps preventing and healing arthritis
  • protects against ulcers
  • reduces risk of colorectal cancer
  • choose yogurts that contain live cultures
  • Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermopholis are the lactic acid bacteria usually used to make yogurt in the United States
Few ways to enjoy yogurt:
  • top your daily cup of yogurt with a quarter-cup of granola, a handful of nuts, and some frozen berries or dried fruit for a quick, delicious and sustaining breakfast
  • creamy yogurt, chives, and freshly ground sea salt and pepper make a great topping for baked potatoes, yams or other cooked vegetables
  • for a creamy salad dressing or vegetable dip, just mix a cup of yogurt with a quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil and your favorite herbs and spices
