So anyway...Yogurt. It wasn't one of the worst things but it definitely didn't feel good either. I cut this and milk pretty much completely out of my diet but in the back of my head I was very worried:
- I'm a woman and concerned about future bone density
- There is a cancer that has popped up in my family that attacks bone density
- I plan to have children in the next couple of years and would like my body to be fit and healthy
I obviously need some calcium. I am taking a vitamin (as the bottle prescribes twice a day) and I talked about this with my PCP and she is in agreement that I need to be conscious of still trying to get calcium rich foods into my diet. I drink calcium enriched OJ and when I can convince myself calcium enriched lactarded milk (eeeeew). I am also branching out into soy yogurt. Not so yummy in general but I have discovered two flavors that I like. Peach complements the sweetness of the soy well and raspberry's tartness covers it. Blueberry and strawberry (my previous two favorite yogurt flavors) are sadly a HUGE flop.
