I will eat that stonyfield, but i do think it is too sweet for me, no matter fruit or vanilla flavor. I do prefer the greek yogurt, honey flavored. a lot less sweet, IMHO.

More info about this healer woman can be found in the latest issue of More magazine. (Sorry, I don't have time to look it up right now.)

The idea that our bodies don't tolerate Greek yogurt as well as regular is just silly. Greek and regular yogurts are the exact same product -- same bacteria, same milk, same procedure -- with more or less whey (the liquid portion of yogurt). Regular yogurt has more whey, so it's thinner; Greek has less. The idea that having less liquid in a product would cause inflammation or weight gain is absurd. I'd love to know what information that Holistic Healer is using to found her dietary advice.

As for which has more sugar... just read the labels. I do seem to remember that the blueberry kind has less sugar than vanilla. Vanilla and Chocolate yogurts almost always have the most sugar.

Well poooooooooooooo that's bad news. No wonder I like it so much :)

I'm not sure how much I believe this yet, without doing further research, but I read an article in (I think) More magazine about a woman, like a holistic healer/diet maven-type, who prescribes very specific diets for people based on what their individual bodies tolerate well. She said, in that article, that, contrary to popular belief, most people don't tolerate the following very well: salmon, oatmeal, Greek yogurt... I can't remember what else, but it was a list of foods that I thought were good for you. She said when we eat certain foods that are incompatible, we gain weight, get bloated, and have other symptoms.

Maybe... I should try the Stonyfield plain and add my own honey or something to sweeten it up. Also, were you getting the vanilla or one with fruit added? I'm thinking maybe there isn't as much sugar in the vanilla...? Hoping, anyway.

I used to eat Stonyfield yogurt all the time until I looked at how much sugar is packed into those little cartons. Some of it is natural milk sugars, but most of it is added for flavor. Now I eat plain, Greek-style yogurt (usually homemade) with fruit stirred in. Sooo much better all around -- thick, ice-creamy texture, no added sugar, and double the protein!

This morning's breakfast:

1/2 c. Stonyfield Fat Free French Vanilla yogurt
1/8 c. Cascadian organic granola
1 T. Chia seed
1 sliced banana

It seemed like a big hearty bowl of food, but when I entered it into the nutrition tracker, this plus my morning coffee (with milk and sugar) was around 380 calories -- not bad!

I may have to give this a try. I am always needing more protein.

I think I'm in love.

I just had 1/4 cup to improve my protein count for the day. I love to mix in fruit and a teeny tiny bit of granola or cereal.

Mmmmmm. Good stuff.
