Skim milk versus whole milk

by Siew Jing
(Simferopol,Ukraine)

In ukraine, the milk are sold acoording to the % of fat, the least is 0.5%, continue by 1.5% and 2.5% and 3.2%. Which one should i take?

Hi Siew, Good question!

Skim milk contains no fat, that's why the 0.5 % version would be great. The higher the fat percentage the more fat and calories the milk contains.

Here is a quick comparison of milk nutrition labels (per 8 ounce serving). It shows that the fat percentage really matters:

Whole Milk (150 Calories) contains 8g Fat
2% Milk (120 Calories) contains 4.5g Fat
1% Milk (100 Calories) contains 2.5g Fat
Skim Milk (80 Calories) - 0g Fat

Non Fat Milk in my Coffee?

Hello and thank you for your time. I understand I am not allowed sugar in my coffee, but is it okay to add non-fat milk? It is hard to imagine drinking black coffee in the morning. Thanks very much, Millie

Hi Millie,
yes, non-fat milk is ok in your coffee.

All the best,

Gabriela

Yoghurt on cabbage soup diet

by Mony
(Cairo, Egypt)

Hi
Are we allowed to add yoghurt with fruits or vegetables or have it on its own. Can i use wheat germ?
Can i use diet sodas?


Dear Mony,
yoghurt should be low fat, plain. You can add your own fruits to it on the fruit days.
No wheat germ and no diet soda while on csd!

All the best,
Gabriela

yoghurt

the fruit gave me some reflux, can i have plain yoghurt to counter-act this? is honey allowed in black tea?

Hi,
We regret but we are not allowed to give you here a medical consultation. When feeling ill or unsure please ask your doctor.

For the cabbage soup diet itself there exists a 7 day cabbage soup diet plan with added low fat yoghurt. Check it here: miracle soup diet.

Honey is not allowed within this week.

All the best,
Gabriela

fat free yoghurts

I dont like milk - full fat skimmed soy, I hate it. Can I have fat free yogurts instead?

Hi Rachel,
yes! Fat free yoghurts are another great protein and calcium source.

Fat free yogurt may rev up your body's fat-burning engines, trim your tummy and speed weight loss according to a study.

All the best,
Gabriela

casein allergy

I'm allergic to milk/casin. What can I drink instead?

Some people with casein allergy can use soy milk instead, others are allergic to soy milk too, in that case I would recommend to use "rice milk".

All the best,
Gabriela
