Just wanted to throw out this product I found at Whole Foods:

A Better whey of Life Yogurt

d29489dcb813642b_DSC09696.xlarge.jpg

It has:

15g of Protein

3g of Fiber

Probiotics

Nonfat

It has 14g of sugar, which isn't great, but much better than traditional yogurts. It does not taste sweet, but rather has a bit of a sour thing going on. My fave (by far) is the Acai Mixed berry, but the mango peach is good too. I have a hard time getting in all my protein, so this has helped. They are a bit pricey at about $1.60 each, but I think they are worth it and are perfect for a dessert or a mid-afternoon snack. I make sure I don't do any other carbs around when I have one.

You may want to consider some of the Greek Yogurts, much cheaper and the plain has no sugars. I generally just add some Splenda type stuff or sf syrups. Okios brand is available at Wal-mart.

If you live near a Kroger aka Frys I would suggest Carbmaster which has 4 gms of carb and 12 gms of Protein.

Thanks for the info, I am always looking for new things.

Where do you find the Greek yougurt at Walmart? I have been looking for this for months. Is it right there with all the other yougurt? If so, they don't have it at my Walmart.

I bought some of the carb smart yesterday and thought it was pretty tasteless. I am going to add some SF Syrup that I put in my Protein drinks and see if that helps.

Thanks for sharing Steve and Phoenix too -- I will have to look at Walmart for that brand -- I don't generally shop at WalMart; however, next time I'm in there, I'll check it out.

My Wal-Mart doesn't carry any of the greek yogurts either. I have to go to Publix to get them. I like the Fage brand, and will check to see if Publix has this brand of yogurt the next I go up there.

I noticed you live in Los Angeles, have you tried the Trader Joes greek yogurt? Or the Trader Joes chocolate and vanilla Protein Shakes/ they are 160 calories, 35 grams of Protein and only 2 carbs!

You may want to ask the folks at Walmart. I find mine near the other yogurts, the Brand is Okios and as I recall it comes in blue and white container.

I generally mix my yogurt with fruit, I get the frozen mixed berries, blueberries, blackberries and sweeten them with Splenda type sweeteners. I know the vanilla Carbmaster by itself can be bland, I prefer the peach and raspberry.

Sure, why not? It seems like we are going

everywhere else! We need to try that Greek Yogurt since everyone seems to keep raving about it.

There is a Trader Joe's in the city I drive to when I go out of town to shop, but I always think I should bring a cooler, but never remember to do it.

I hear so much about Trader Joe's, and we don't have them here in Florida. I wish we did, they sound awesome. We did just have a whole foods open here though, I plan on checking them out this week.

Maybe I'll stop at Trader Joes when I go to the airport on Thurs. My flight does not leave until 4 pm so I will have plenty of time to fool around in "the big city"

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
