I know that yogurt is a good item to add to my daily intake my question is that are their any issues going with the low fat made with splenda that has 100 calories rather than the regular that has twice that?

I am eating yoplait:

Is this a good type to eat?

Low fat/Non-fat yoghurt is fantastic for you. Dairy is great for building bones and muscle as it is, removing the saturated fats is even better. That being said i do buy the odd pint of semi-skimmed =)

There is also some research going on as to how calcium prevents fat cell multiplication; I read an article few months back on it. It had a reccomended dosage of 1500mg of calcium a day from low/non-fat dairy sources, bearing in mind that the body can only absorb 500mg in any one sitting. Will dig it up when i get back home.
