Plain yogurt = *gag*... Help!



Recommended Posts

The difference it if you look at something like FAGE 0% the ingredients are clean and basic; milk and active cultures. Compare that to Yoplait that contains: Cultured Pasteurized Grade A Nonfat Milk, Milk Protein Concentrate, Sugar, Kosher Gelatin,

Pectin, Lemon juice Concentrate, Natural Flavor, Locust Bean Gum, Vitamin A Acetate,

Vitamin D3.

FAGE also has more protein than Yoplait

While this is all true, her nutritionist's argument was flavored yogerts have more sugar and that isn't necessarily so!

You could probably add a tablespoon or so of skim milk to thin it out. Or, less pudding powder.

I like putting it in the freezer and getting something like a cross between a pudding and ice cream.

I started eating clean as an act of self preservation. My allergies were out of control and I spent more time fighting and recuperating from allergy attacks than out and enjoying life. I also became a fat vegetarian.

It's taken me a long time but I follow really basic rules:

  • Bring a magnifying glass with you to the market
  • Anything that says,'light, fat free, diet' or similar is either lying or fake and heavily processed.
  • Try to buy foods that have 10 ingredients or less and/or do not require a science degree to understand the ingredients.
  • Avoid most foods that come in a box or a can.
  • Frozen foods with no additives are your friend.

Thanks everyone!

I think I may have mistyped - she said there are yogurts with flavors that are ok (brand and specific type escapes me right now) ... She meant my actual one I had (store brand low fat vanilla) had added sugars. :)

Yogherts to me taste like vomit but when the flavor of it is mixed with Protein Powder and strong flavored fruits, then I can drink or eat it by the bucket full. I don't know how to trick my mind or taste buds to like Yogherts by themselves. Then again eatting Sea food is the same thing. I'm talking about ALL sea foods. I just gag, I try to force myself but then I just want to vomit. I can't even go past or enter shops selling it because the aroma makes me feel like vomiting. Again how do you trick your senses?

Personally I think that's what this new lifestyle is about, finding ways to eat better and still enjoy it. Yogurt plus protein powder is a great, protein rich way to start your day.

I don't believe in hypnosis to try the brain either because anything can be suggested and you wouldn't know or know what maybe happening while your under. I can only assume every new habbit takes 21 days, so maybe I need to have extremely small serves each day to get the taste buds moving?.

@@Bexsta everyone has different taste buds and it's ok to not like yogurt. I don't think you have to force yourself to eat it unless you just super want to eat yogurt. There are plenty of other nutrient rich foods with Protein out there that you will love, and you can always get Probiotics in other methods. =)

Kefir is one thing that people can try if they just hate yogurt, I do not suggest eating it without flavoring it, it has all the same benefits of yogurt and typically 11+ grams of Protein per cup.

I was thinking the other day of getting a jug of It and doing half milk half keifer in my supplement instead of just skim milk as per usual :)

@@MamaTo3inNH one of my coworkers swears by it, she was suffering from an intestinal digestion issue for years and taking meds, she discovered kefir and started feeling better, stopped taking the meds.

      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!
