Plain yogurt = *gag*... Help!



Recommended Posts

I have to get some plain yogurt today. Either kind (Greek or regular) will definitely make me gag, and mixing in baby food fruits or applesauce doesn't help. Has anyone ever mixed in flavored Protein powder? I'm nervous it will be some gross consistency? I don't want to test it out and pitentially waste it all.

How do you spice up your yogurts? NUT said extracts are ok as well. Anyone use those?

I like plain greek yogurt with one Splenda packet mixed in. I would say it is definitely an acquired taste. Do you have to have plain? There are lots of flavors of light greek yogurts available.

My way is probably not the best way but it worked really well for me. I put in some sugar free jello!!

It was the only way I could eat it without putting fruit in it.

It is weird the way different clinics require differnt things. I was allowed a light blended yogurt. They were flavored, sugar free and NO fruit pieces in them. I used Yoplaits thick and creamy light.

My fav is to mix flavored grrek yogurt with oatmeal. Reminds me of cake frosting. One needs to mix it in the night before eat so that it can absorb the moisture.

You could mix in unsweetened cocoa powder. Or they have these packets at the store in the baking isle they use to flavor frosting (Duncan Haines brand I believe) which you can add to the yogurt, there is very little sugar in the Packets because they are supposed to be added to frosting which has a lot of sugar. Good luck :)

I have mixed plain greek nonfat yogurt with just about everything. SF hot chocolate, Protein powders, SF puddings. It'll be fine. Just add a little at a time so you don't overdo it.

Good ideas everyone!!!

My office has GB patients start two weeks prior to surgery eat like they will have to post-op for 3-4 months, to get us ready. That's why the no sugars low fat :)

I have never been a fan of yogurt period. And it sucks now cause the greek yogurt has so much Protein but no matter what brand I buy it's a no go. My husband and daughter LOVE yogurt, I just have never been a fan.

In fact just the other day I tried another brand, and was like nope. I figure I can eat only such little amounts that I am going to eat food I enjoy. I am almost 11 weeks out and I think I have done pretty good so far without the yogurt. Grant it it would be nice because of the smooth consistency and high Protein, but I just can't.

Good Luck with your yogurt, I hope you find something that works, there are a lot of great suggestions on this thread already!! :)

I bought some sugar free Torani syrups because I've seen it suggested a lot, I haven't tried it in yogurt yet but they are good in plain Protein powder. But in the past I have flavored the yogurt with extracts as well and it is good, you can find a lot of flavors usually on the baking aisle, orange, lemon, mint, vanilla, coffee. I hit them up when they are on bogo haha.

I've added SF pudding mix to my plain yogurt and it's pretty good. Just a little goes along way.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
