Plain yogurt = *gag*... Help!



Recommended Posts

I have a ton of allergies and sensitivities. I eat plain greek yogurt because I don't like the fake sugar and artificial dyes in the fruit kind, and I am picky about the type of greek yogurt I buy. I only buy FAGE 0%. I have mixed Protein powder, my own fresh fruit, nuts, oatmeal and even nut butter with the yogurt. It's a great source of Protein.< /p>

However, if you do not like yogurt, don't eat it. I happen to like greek yogurt. I ate it before WLS and continue to do so post-op. Just find other ways to meet your protein requirements. This is a big enough adjustment without punishing ourselves by eating foods we don't like.

In fact here's a handy chart full of alternative protein sources.

I LOVE yogurt!!! Literally love. Any and all except plain. I buy plain in the summer and add berries. Sometimes I use plain yogurt mixed with veggie dip spices and make a healthy dip. I guess there are some sugar free flavored yogurts I am going to get those. I haven't bought anything besides Chobani in a few years so I'm out of the loop. It's just cost effective to buy a big jug of plain yogurt, that's why I asked what I can add :)

Chobani is on my do not buy list because they use GMO's.

I don't know what faze your in but ranch dressing powder mix is great. Also I add to black bean purée. It's like sour cream. Also PB2 with Protein Powder frozen then blended is good. I hate it if not frozen first.. Textures freak me out. My friend makes frozen yogurt dots check Pinterest out too

Cinnamon helps. I have added chocolate Protein powder too but hated the consistency so added some fat free milk to it and that helped

I buy a tub of Greek yogurt thats about 2 cups and add one packet of crystal lite for the individual Water bottles and 2 packets of splenda. Then I eat small servings for a snack. One tub usually lasts me a week. It is less calories and carbs if you make it this way than buying flavored yogurts, and its easier to dish up a small serving that it was eating half a regular container. I try to eat some yogurt every day. I think it helps keep me regular. My go to flavor is the raspberry ice.

Try Torani sugar free syrups......0 sugar 0cals 0 carbs

Another vote for Torani-- I love white chocolate, coconut, and salt caramel. I flavor plain yogurt with vanilla extract, sweetener, and cinnamon. Also a little bit of OJ concentrate, vanilla and sweetener. Not SF but it takes so little to make a Creamsicle flavor. I am pre-surgery, though-- don't know if any of these will appeal post-surgery. Good luck!

I have always only eaten plain Greek Yogurt...the flavored ones always taste too sweet to me. I use Protein powder (vanilla, banana and cake batter are my favorites) or Torani syrups (English toffee, almond and pumpkin pie are great) to flavor it. This way I can control the sweetness.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
