Default Confused about yogurt?

I've never been a fan of yogurt, but am trying to incorporate it in to my diet, to help with my dairy requirement. Much like many other previous foods that I didn't like, either my taste buds grew up, or this diet helped, because now I actually kind of like it!

I went back and read the materials, but I'm still a little bit confused, and want to make sure I'm not sabotaging myself.

For P2, I can have 4 oz. of fat-free, fruit flavored, artificially sweetened yogurt, if I remembered all of that correctly? Does it also have to say "no sugar added," because that's what I'm having a hard time finding. It just seems like there is so much sugar in then, although I know some of that is from the milk itself, so that's a little different.

I've been careful to pick up the ones that have a lower sugar count.

For example, the one I have now is:

Archer Farms (Target brand)
Blueberry-Pomegranate
Fat Free
Sweetened with Aspartame
6 oz. (but I know to only eat 4 oz.)
90 calories
0 fat
10g sugar

Some I looked at yesterday were as high as 22g of sugar!

Is this "legal?" If not, do any of you have any specific brands that are legal that you like? I stood staring at the yogurt for 20 minutes yesterday, and this was the best I could come up with. lol I'm willing to look harder, I just don't know if I'm looking for the right thing. Thanks!

It looks good to me. The juice concentrate is the only thing that I see that might be a problem. If it doesn't cause cravings then it should be okay. I used to really love buying Bluebunny Lite but my stores don't carry it anymore so I tend to buy the Kroger store brand which really doesn't help you since I doubt you have Kroger's.

Any of the yogurts labeled "lite" should be fine. Most are art. sweetened.

Thank you both! I did find a NSA at Publix, but it wasn't fat free.

And Barb, I do have a Kroger, so I'll check there. They actually have some things on sale this week I want, so I'll check while I'm there.

I have SuperWalmart, SuperTarget, Kroger, Publix and Trader Joe's within 10-15 minutes, so any of those are fine. But if what I got works, then I'm cool. I'll just watch for the lower sugar versions.

Thanks!

The Kroger Lite has a French Apple Pie that I REALLY love which is why I usually get that.

Even the plain, no sugar, basic stuff has 17 g of sugars (per 8 oz serving)...cuz they're milk sugars!

South Beach allows low fat. It doesn't have to be fat free. That may give you some more options. My Publix has a Publix brand No sugar added/Fat Free yogurt that is tart but good.

What about KRoger's Carb Master and Fage yogurts? Add stevia or splenda or fruits.

I'm honestly thinking of just making my own flavors.

I finally found one I adore, that only has fruit juice added as a sweetener (and the sugars were still low, so supposedly not a bunch), but I realized I wanted to eat everything the afternoons I had them for lunch. So, I guess it's not for me.

So, now I'm thinking of plain yogurt with a bunch of fruit and maybe a squirt of agave nectar (or if I ever get stevia, maybe that?).

I'm actually thinking of making my own yogurt. Apparently it's really easy to do and I can strain it to make greek yogurt. That's got to be cheaper! After that I figure I can powder some dried fruit and make my own flavors. I have no idea if it will work but might as well give it a try
