8. Yogurt is great for probiotics and protein, but beware of sugar content
Yogurt is great for many things. It’s full of probiotics and can even be a good source of protein, but have you checked the amount of sugar in your go to yogurt? Many times the best marketed products are the least healthiest. Fat-free can mean a lot more sugar to compensate for taste. A yogurt with 15g of sugar and 4g of protein is not worth the calories! Instead, aim for 12-14g of protein and the lightest amount of sugar possible. Greek yogurt is generally higher in protein and still just as delicious! Adding toppings? Those calories count too! Be sure that you aren’t adding another servings worth of toppings or your weight loss goal might be moot.
