    Yogurt carb or protein

    Hi Everyone,

    For some reason I thought yogurt would be considered a protein kind of like cottage cheese, since I would consider them both dairy. Anyways, bought fat free ate then read label. Kind of backwards, but now I think it's a carb since carbs are listed high on label and protein low. Also was wondering does everybody separate their egg whites or just buy egg beaters. I feel like I'm wasting eggs when I separate them and throw away the yolks. I know these are pretty silly questions but thought I'd ask anyways.

    I buy egg whites in a carton which is different the egg beaters (includes the yolk). I am not sure if the egg white carton is what you mean by egg beaters. If it isn't than look at your grocery store they quite often do sell the egg whites in a carton.

    As for yogurt it can really depend on the brand. Yogurt is still considered a protein but it is a great post workout protein (after workout shake therefore sort of your 2nd meal post w/o if you count your shake as a meal) because of the high carbs and slow releasing protein.

    plain yogurt (not all those sugar added ones) has a little protein in it, not comparable serving size vs. cottage cheese but its does have some. I would not eat it alone as a primary protein source at a meal.

    as for egg whites- I buy liquid egg whites in cartons and eggs (to seperate).

    You may be wasting the yolks, but it's hella cheaper than buying liquid egg whites at the grocery store! (rounded: $2 vs. $5... I'll take it!!) At least that's what I have seen anyway!

    If i am separating the eggs for an omlette and don't want the yolks i put them in freezer bags in lots of two and freeze them. If a receoie calls for yolks only i will use them then, otherwise keep them frozen and give them to a friend who loves to bake and will use them.

    One of our grocery stores always has a coupon for eggs..buy one get one free, so even tho you feel like your wasting the yolks, they really dont cost that much.
    I dont like yogurt so I just stick with the cottage cheese for my protein.

    Hi. Thanks for all your replies.

    I'm still a little confused though. I went on Body for Life list of foods and yogurts listed as a carb. I'm heading to the grocery store now and will check labels against each other to see if there's differences between brands. I love yogurt but don't want to blow my efforts by eating it. I wanted to use it at night for a quick little protein snack before bed but my have to find something else. I'm just not a big fan of cottage cheese and thought I could have this instead.

    Here is my take on that. If you (or anyone else) were to eat those yolks and then later your body didn't use them and either stored them as fat or simply excreted them...wouldn't that be just as wasteful?

    I have been known to stir them into my dog's food though. Seems to help her coat. ;o)

    First I separate my yolks because that it way cheaper then having someone else separate them and package them. Besides how's it any different than trimming the fat off of meat? Second, if you track your total carbs for the day and yogurt fits in without putting you over your limit then go ahead and eat it. You should have it with protein though, whether it's mixed in Cottage Cheese (this is great with fruit in the blender, tastes like ice cream) or with a meat source. The protein will slow down the breakdown of the carbs.

    tastes damn good too.

    i guess it really depends on where you live huh?





    and i thought there was only one way to make yogurt *shrugs*
