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.
