Energy Content of Dairy Foods
If you want to lose weight, low-fat milk and yogurt is a good food option for a healthy weight loss diet, as it has a low calorie-content. In general, calorie-controlled diets recommend a regular intake of these dairy foods, but a low intake of cream which contains more fat calories. In addition to energy content, dietary nutrition is also important, as a nutritious diet helps the body to burn calories faster and maintains a healthy metabolic rate. So as well as calorie-counting, check food labels for nutritional value. Nutritional and energy values provided on most of the above food pages include: vitamins, minerals, folate and dietary fiber, as well as protein and carbs. Understanding diet nutrition makes calorie control and weight management easier and helps you to follow a healthy eating plan. For example, people with lactose intolerance (inability to digest the milk-sugar lactose due to a deficiency of lactase) may safely drink non-dairy soy milk. See also Nutrition in Dairy Food
