Yogurt is liked by almost everyone and is a part of Indian cuisine. With the West’s newfound interest in yogurt, we can now find its many variants in the market — raw yogurt, low fat yogurt, plain yogurt,yogurt with different flavours etc. When we visit a yogurt section of a supermarket, one will be really confused to see different varieties of yogurt and will be dumbstruck as to which one to choose.
Yogurt is a milk product rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, potassium and magnesium.
Of all types of yogurt variants, yogurt with probiotic is found to be more useful and a wholesome food as it contains the friendly bacteria that is normally present in the gut so that it helps in washing out the overcrowded bacteria of the gut. This helps in the normal functioning of the intestines and helps in boosting the immune system of the body.
In addition to this, yogurt helps in loosing belly fat as well. According to a research conducted by University of Tennessee, Knoxville, people who consume 18 ounces of yogurt daily can lose their belly fat easily. This is because the fat around the waist produces hormone cortisol which signals accumulation of fat around the waist region. When yogurt is consumed, the calcium in it signals the body to produce less cortisol and, as a result, less fat gets accumulated around the waist.
So guys, all you out there who are aiming for flat abs, give a try to yogurt diet too along with your sweaty gym sessions.
