Personally I don't like yogurt but my M.D. wants me to eat it. LOL.

Interesting, Morticia. Great information to have. (even if I am hooked on the Greek now!)

A lot of the sugar in yogurt is in the whey and it also has some of the bitterness. If you drain it off you can get rid of some of the carbs and calories. You lose some calcium and protein though. Personally I don't like the whey and prefer the texture without it. According to the Dannon company removing the whey from yogurt in a 4 oz serving will save approximately 30 calories, 1 gram of protein, 7 grams of carbohydrates, and 130 mg calcium.

Good choice for phase 2 due to the blueberries....

Chobani fat free plain greek yogurt. 100 calories, 7 grams carb . I add frozen blueberries and sweetener. It's delicious and satisfying.

Look at the ingredients not the nutritional data. The sugar you see in the nutritional is normally (key word) the naturally occuring milk sugar which is fine. BUT you don't want sugar in the ingredients. I have yet to see a plain yogurt that has added sugar...vanilla yes...any flavored..yes. So if you stick to plain or plain greek, you should be fine (and just sugar free sweeten it yourself).

I went to the store looking for plain yogurt, but they ALL have sugar. What type is acceptable for phase 1?
