I can only do the plain greek yogurt mixed with fruit which meant I couldn't have it in the evening.

I tried cocoa and stevia or agave but it didn't do it for me. I started eating the small individual fat free fruit flavoured yogurts in the evening as my second serving but that led me to having more than one because they were of course only 35 cals each but they also didn't usually satisfy me. I know we don't count cals but that justified my having more than one.

What I finally discovered for myself was to mix 1 35 cal container with equal amounts of plain greek yogurt. It was sweet enough, stopped my cravings for more and I was getting more protein. Just an idea for others who might be in the same boat.

Don't worry about the carbs on your plain yogurt. You need them.

Thanks for the imput on my question, ladies. I don't ever have any fruit after 2pm, but instead have my 2nd serving of Greek plain nonfat yogurt after dinner (a lil cocoa and a packet of stevia added). When I looked at all the carbs in the plain nonfat yogurt last night, I kinda freaked out though! I guess its okay? It really does satisfy the sweet ending after dinner that I usually crave.

This is a perfect example of why it's important to go through the cycles. I've found out about so many allergies that I wasn't aware of.

I'm wondering about a table spoon of chopped almonds on your yogurt at night or better yet sliced. I loving having a little crunch in my yogurt.

Walnuts, black beans and raspberries are three of the things that are off the menu for this body. Who would have thought??? Not me. I've been eating them my entire life but didn't have a "clean" enough body to get the message that I was making myself sick every time I ate them.

It sounds like the yogurt is ok if you can tolerate the artificial sweeteners. You might want to google them and find out what it is you are eating. Alcohol based sweeteners usually produce a lot of gas so if you notice that happening...the yogurt could be the culprit.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

There isn't actually fruit in my yogurt (i don't like that kind) so its just flavored. I understand what you are saying though. I will stick to what is working for me until it stops working.

I already learned one lesson in C3 - my body doesn't like to many almonds. Yesterday I had some almonds because I was crazing something different. I know we aren't supposed to have that many but i ended up going back for seconds and a big handful well my body didn't like it at all and I paid for it later. So now I know that I need to limit myself better. Eventhough I like the taste of them I don't like the way it made me feel. Lesson learned :)

It might be a good idea to let go of the fruit and substitute with stevia at night. I also use cocoa and cinnamon. I eat my earlier yogurt with a cup of fresh strawberries or blueberries before 2PM.

Of course we all eat things that are not on the diet from time to time but we also know that those are the little things that trip us up.

Last night I took a bite of a cookie that Mr. Skinny had sitting out on his plate. Now I want to eat every sweet thing in the house. I'm drinking coffee as I write this and feeling a little better after a night of gas and misery.

When will I learn??? Was the bite worth it? NO WAY. Will I do it again? I hope not but probably somewhere down the road. It's just better to stick to the diet as best you can. There will be many times that you won't have that option and you will have to make do.

NO fruit after 2PM whenever possible.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

I use the fruit on the bottom yogurt as well. One at breakfast and the other after dinner. The chobani brand is really good but I find myself flipping it over to discard some of the fruit from the bottom (there is too much in my opinion).

Pudgynomore - is it because they are flavored? is that why you say i shouldn't eat them after 2pm? the book doesn't say anything about eatting them before 2pm - and he includes fruit flavored as a type you can eat. i don't think the yogurts i am eatting are high in carbs. They haven't effected me so far - its the real carbs - breads, etc. that my body doesnt like.

Daisy, I'm so glad that the diet is working for you. You might want to revisit that raspberry yogurt as you get closer to your goal weight, or if you plateau. Carbs after 2PM are really not a good idea. As long as you are losing weight at the level that you want it sounds like it is working for your body. I know from experience that it would set me back several days.

Since I started 17DD I have used my probiotics as my dessert in the evenings. I have two 6oz raspberry flavored yogurts. I find that they are like a dessert and satisfy that need for something sweet. It has been working for me and I actually look forward to having them.

My go to probiotic is my yogurt and I eat one serving at lunch and one serving after dinner before 8pm...as I don't like to eat after 8pm.
So you are doing fine having it as your after dinner treat.

Definitely get your fruit in before two pm......fruits are all carbs and do need our higher energy levels earlier in the day to burn efficiently. The Greek yogurts are high in protein so can go later. That said, I usually have 1 at breakfast and one at lunch.....and my fruit at 10am and 2pm.

That schedule seems to work well for me -

Question:
I am having a hard time getting my 2nd probiotic serving in before the end of the day. I have been squeezing it in for an after dinner dessert (smoothie w/ cocoa powder, stevia and ice). Is this totally not okay? Wondering if I should be getting it in earlier in the day considering the carbohydrates/sugar in the greek yogurt. Or is it just a timeframe for our fruit servings??? Thanks in advance.

Kristina
