    I have tried the Greek yogurt, Chobani brand, and am pleased with this product. A 6oz serving had 13g carbs, 13g sugars, and get this, 16g of protein. It is more expensive that "regular" brands, but worth every penny.

    Do yourself one better, and get the plain and add fruit to it. Maybe a little Stevia.

    My favorite Greek Yogurt is Fa(fourth letter in the alphabet)e. The censor will not let me spell out that 4 letter word, which is pronounced Fa-yeh. An 8 oz. serving (1 cup) has 20 g protein, 0 g fat, and 9 g total carbs. I eat 1/2 cup with 1/2 strawberries or grapes or melon. Smooth!
    LBR72 responded:
    Do you just eat the plain or the Chobani with fruit already added in? I love Chobani but saw how much more sugar was in the fruit ones, so I am using the plain and adding fruit to it (doesn't taste as good as the other).
    LBR72 replied to LBR72's response:
    Wow, never mind, didn't read it all the way through! Thanks everyone, Beta thats exactly what I do. Its nice to know I'm doing a few things right
    betaquartz replied to LBR72's response:
    A few sugars in something like that I don't think you should worry about, but when you get total carbs at 13 all from sugar, then I think twice. You get enough sugar unintentionally that watching something like that helps.
    krhudson replied to betaquartz's response:
    Yes, and some are a base of skim milk and milk can be a spiker just on its own and then with the 13 carbs which is most likely the milk itself being sugar that is high. Everybody reacts different so I would check it out and test a couple hours later and if the blood sugar is higher than 140 I would take that snack down a little until it worked since it is one of those foods that is so very good. I know with my type 1 I should only have yoglurt before a work out or I take 1 unit of Humalog to cover it. I use Yoplait light.

    I prefer the Greek Yogurt but have been nly able to find it at one store near me.

    I buy plain fat free yogurt and add fresh or frozen fruit also. Sometimes I add splenda or stevia if the fruit isn't sweet enough. I usually add 2 TBS of ground flax too for fiber and other nutrients.

    Chopped almonds are good to add also.

    I might try cinnamon/apple next.
    betaquartz replied to ironman97176's response:
    Great mix with the flax and the almonds, try pecans, and walnuts too, they bring out different flavors in the fruit. Pecans being sweeter, and walnuts a little bitter. I'll have to try the flax. I use cinnamon a lot in my nut mixtures, it adds a great flavor, and a little sweetness-works with pepper too!

    Fage is fabulous and we fixed the censor for this very reason.
    ejoy13 responded:
    I stopped all yogurt, although I did like the Chobani vey much. I eat fat free cottage cheese with fresh fruit.
    flutetooter replied to ejoy13's response:
    I use my fat free greek yogurt instead of mayonaise, especially in slaw, chicken/apple/walnut salad, shredded carrot salad, tuna or salmon salad, and best of all about 1/3 cup of it topped with Hershey syrup (just a bit) or no sugar cocoa powder and put in the freezer until just firm for a high protein, low sugar "ice cream". This also works with fresh berry toppings.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
    mhall6252 replied to flutetooter's response:
    Greek yogurt is becoming easier to find in the grocery store and the prices have dropped significantly. I like the idea of using it as a mayo replacement - I will try that although I've used a light mayo for decades. I feel like I am eating full fat sour cream or mayo when I eat greek yogurt. I had some this morning with fresh blueberries, almonds and sweetened with splenda. It was a little more tolerable...must be an acquired taste.

    flutetooter replied to mhall6252's response:
    Fage Greek Yogurt comes in no fat, low fat, and full fat. Since I do not like any sweets, the taste is perfect for me, especially when it is just used as a "binder" to keep salads together.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
    betaquartz replied to flutetooter's response:
    Take a double check on the low and no fats. Sometimes they either add sugar to help with the taste or the process makes it higher in sugars. I usually go for the plain and keep my additives low in sugars/carbs.
