    Replacing Milk with Yogurt.. Lactose Intolerant. Is too much yogurt bad?

    I consume about 4 cups (32 fl oz) of milk every day (2 protein shakes). I am lactose intolerant (I can only handle small amounts of Lactose), so I have to use Lactaid Milk (Lactose removed milk). It is getting kind of pricey as Lactaid costs almost 3 times as much as regular 2% milk.

    I have a yogurt maker at home and it makes yogurt in less than 8 hours! If you're not aware, the bacteria uses Lactose in the milk as energy to make yogurt. So, in a way yogurt has little or no lactose and I am assuming that will take care of my Lactose Intolerance.

    I was wondering if instead of using 4 cups of lactaid milk every day, can I use 4 cups of yogurt? Simply, I won't be consuning milk anymore, but I will instead use yogurt.

    My first concern is if 4 cups of yogurt (32 fl oz per day) will put any stress on my digestive system compared to 4 cups of Lactaid milk. Second, I want to know if I am sacrificing any nutrition or vitamins? Is yogurt missing anything that the milk form offers?
