Dear Liezel
All the slimming diets on this Website are just examples, so you are free to make any changes you like to include your favourite foods or to add herbs, spices, lemon juice, etc to increase the taste. The diet you describe is reasonable and should still promote weightloss esp as you are doing plenty of exercise. However, the reasons why the milk and yoghurt have been included, are as follows: Research has shown that individuals who increase their calcium intake from low-fat dairy products lose more weight than individuals who avoid all dairy products and these foods are included to ensure that slimmers still obtain about 1000 mg of calcium a day to prevent brittle bone syndrome. So if you don't like milk and yoghurt, you either need to use low-fat cottage cheese as a substitute or take calcium supplement such as MenaCal.7 to ensure that you don't develop a calcium deficiency. You can add non-nutritive sweeteners to foods that you would like to sweeten (e.g. Canderel) after cooking.
Good luck with your diet and keep up the good work with the exercise.
Best regards
