Bell Pepper Yogurt Dip
Dr. Katz's Flavor Point Diet
"Good Morning America" medical contributor Dr. David Katz has come up with a diet that promises to let people eat all their favorite foods and still lose weight.
After conducting extensive research at the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, Katz found that by following flavor themes each week, dieters could reach the flavor point at which they'd feel completely satisfied and full.
Combining his medical knowledge with his wife's expertise -- she is a neuroscientist as well as a gourmet cook -- Katz has created a diet that he says will result in people eating less not because they are starving themselves but because they feel full.
Fat-free yogurt is a great alternative to traditional mayonnaise as a base for dips. Whereas mayonnaise provides a large load of fat and calories, yogurt provides neither of these and is a great source of calcium and those famous active cultures.
Finely chop the pepper in a small food processor. In a small bowl, stir together the pepper, yogurt, garlic powder and salt until blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
