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.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
