Can you all recommend your favorite yogurt? I am on puree stage and had some Oikos Triple Zero today but it was too sweet for me. Almost sickening sweet...pre op I liked them but nope......

So I am looking for low sugar and higher Protein. I was looking at Sigis as a possibility but was just curious if anyone has an favorites.

*Bursts in* Am I late? No? Whew...

I prefer the Greekest (I said it) of yogurts. Usually plain 0% fat very high Protein like Chobani, Fage Stoneyfield Farms or even store brand. I choose these because they are highly customizable and can be used for cooking also.

I eat a lot of yogurt. All around the world too, but always the purest plainest I can get.

Good luck 💟

Thank you...I was going to try the fage plain next...not sure what I will add to it at this point but there must be something I can try. Any recommendations on additions that don't add bulk at this point? (basically that I can eat during Puree stage ....powders maybe? ) I am willing to try most anything once.

I like the yoplait “yo” yogurt. It is not Greek but is made with the ultra filtered milk so is higher in Protein and low in sugar.

I have only tried the vanilla and lime so cannot speak for the other flavors but they sell out every time they are on sale.

Some Greek yogurts are too sour for me, so this is a nice change.

Thank you. I will look at this too...variety is key for me.

You can add almost everything to it sugar subs, sugar free syrups like the ones used for coffees, Crystal light powders, preserves, nut butters, fruit purees, top of chili, Soup, etc

The power of plain.

I like dannon light n fit Greek yogurt. Many flavors. toasted coconut or vanilla may be less sweet for you. I love the Carmel apple pie, pumpkin pie, and fruit on the bottom flavors but, they may be too sweet. 80 caories, 12g protien, 9 carbs, 0 fat

I second the plain Greek yogurt. You can add anything to it for the most variety. This morning I added 5 blueberries cooked down with a teeny-tiny pinch of stevia and a teaspoon of Water. Yesterday it was 5 crushed pistachios. And one time I added (don't judge me!) 2 anchovy fillets.

...also good for making tatziki and then adding it everything ;)

Thanks everyone... lots of great suggestions and ideas. Except maybe the anchovies 😆

Anchovy fillets?? That's a first.

The other good thing about plain is you control the level of additional stuff. So you could put a tiny bit of sugar free Syrup, just enough for the flavour without it being too sweet.

No judgement once I added avocado and pistachio...

I eat a lot of yogurt too and if I have one that is too sweet I add a scoop of plain unflavored Protein Powder to it. Cuts the sweetness and ups the Protein too.

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
