    I put myself on a 1200 calorie or less daily diet. Been on it for 4 weeks. I was a chocolate addict and a sugar fix in large quantity was part of my downfall leading to the diet.

    Never been a fan of yogurt but at 100 calories per container it is a good option. Recently I came across Yoplait Greek 100 Orange Creme.

    It is fantastic and satisfies my "sweet" need. I just hope I don't find out it is like Kramer's Yogurt. It seems too good to be true.

    Yopait Greek 100 Orange Creme Yogurt . You'll love it.

    ( do we get paid for doing commercials here ?)

    If I'm having a yogurt, it's got to be Noosa or Stonyfield Farms french vanilla (i put other stuff in it--blueberries, pecans).

    The dining room at work carries Activia. Lately I'm addicted to it.

    You gotta have the probiotics.
    I'm pretty sure Yoplait is the yogurt equivalent of doughnuts.

    Here are some articles from one of my gigs. Read your labels carefully. Avoid the flavored stuff.

    If it's marketed as yogurt in the US, it has to have live and active cultures by definition. Different manufacturers use different cultures and have different levels of sugar/sweeteners. Yoplait recently stopped using Aspartame in its 100 calorie product.

    The turn-off with Activia is that they add way too much sugar... even to the so-called 'plain' version! :nono

    I stick to this in my bowl o' breakfast every day:

    Trader Joe's has great yogurt too.
    Greek yogurt has way more protein.
    I prefer whole-fat yogurt.
    Toss a little cereal in there and it's like a dessert.
    But look out, because there is often tons of sugar in there.

    Hmmm

    Sugars 7g
    Protein 12g
    Cholest <5mg
    Trans Fat 0g
    Saturated Fat 0g
    Total fat 0g

    It's still gotta be better than my bag of M&M diet and I mean a large bag of M&M's

    This. And, I believe Yoplait has a bunch of artificial sweeteners and additives, artificial color, etc.

    The Siggi's is amazing. Very thick. And a ton of protein. Blueberry, Coconut, Pumpkin, etc. Plus, it won't pump you full of carcinogens, so there's that.

    The cafe in my work building sells parfaits in 2 options: Nonfat vanilla (which I’m sure means high sugar) and plain Greek. I usually go for the vanilla and accidentally grabbed plain Greek last week, it was what I imagine eating whipped shortening would be like. Having been raised on the Americanized bastard son version of yogurt I only made it halfway through before tossing it. Ish!

    At home my favorite recipe is a blob of Stonyfield vaniller in a bowl with a handful of raw oatmeal and some frozen blueberries. Stir it up and give it a few minutes to marinate.. mmmm mmmm MMM.

    Looking at the label, it appears that they don't have those in there any longer. Seems to have a decent amount of sugars (( maybe why I like it )), but otherwise pretty good.

    Fat isn't bad for you. Keep an eye on TV sugar, it varies from 3g to 26g's.


    Might as we'll have a kit kat.

    Thanks!

    The plain version only has 4g, if that helps (probably not, ha). Really, though, their product is awesome.

    If you really want to do something healthy, why not avoid sweet yogurt, and instead by plain ol' Greek Yogurt. Specifically Fage.

    Stop feeding your sugar craving, lest you're doomed to fall right back into it.

    I agree with you.
    Complement with a bit of granola, or some high fiber cereals/grains if you want: the best combo.
