Little by little plain yogurt is overtaking the flavored variety in my daily food plan.

Thursday, May 16, 2013

I’m the Queen of Gradualism in all things – weight loss, fitness improvement and now sugar reduction.

I love my organic yogurt but my flavor of choice is French Vanilla. I buy it by the quart and eat 8 oz or more per day. I add my own fruit to it too.

Recently I bought a quart of “plain” by accident. Unfortunately, I have to like my food and I don’t like plain yogurt. I was surprised to see that it had half the sugar of my favorite, but that still wasn’t enough of an incentive for me to eat it.

I’m too thrifty a person to throw it out and DH won’t eat any yogurt. So I mixed one tablespoon of the plain stuff with the French Vanilla (still 1 cup total). That totally disguised it so I continued the experiment bit by bit.

It’s been about a month but my mixture is now half and half. Now I buy a quart of each variety. My taste buds are still happy and I’ve reduced the sugar content by 8 grams. I don’t know how long this will continue, but I like the trend.

This would be too slow for a lot of people, but when I began my weight loss journey, my calorie deficit was only 250 calories per day. When I started running I increased my running intervals by 15 seconds per week. I’m a very patient person.
