Yogurt can be a helpful weight loss tool, since it is high in protein. However, many yogurts are high in sugar and other additives that do not support weight loss. To help you make healthy choices while taking Phentermine 37.5mg, review the following yogurt suggestions.
Fage Total 2% Greek Yogurt
This yogurt features 18 grams of protein, 97 calories, 0 grams of fat, and 65mg of sodium per seven-ounce cup.
“Lowfat yogurts are a good compromise between the lower-calorie benefits of nonfat yogurt and the better-tasting whole-milk yogurts,” says Stephanie Nelson, RD. “And Greek yogurts in general are great for weight loss because they are higher in protein, which helps preserve muscle mass while you lose fat.”
siggi’s Icelandic Style Strained Non-Fat Vanilla Yogurt
Celebrated for its great taste, this yogurt features 0 gram of fat, 110 calories, 55 mg of sodium, and 15 grams of protein per 5.3-ounce cup.
“With just 9 grams of sugar, it barely has any added sugars, as yogurt itself naturally contains about 6 grams. As opposed to most other vanilla-flavored Greek yogurts, with about 15-20 grams per serving, a moderate 9 grams of sugar in Siggi’s is the winner,” says Bonnie Balk, a dietitian.
Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt, Plain
Per ¾ cup serving, this yogurt features 90 calories, 0 grams of fat, 16 grams of protein, and 65 mg of sodium.
“All these characteristics in this yogurt] are ideal for weight loss and overall health as it provides no empty calories and plenty of protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied, which prevents overeating,” notes Trisha Best, MPH, RD, LD.
Maple Hill Creamery Plain Greek Yogurt
Featuring 160 calories, 90mg of sodium, 7 grams of fat, and 15 grams of protein per serving, this yogurt is another winner. It’s also from grass-fed cows.
“Grass-fed yogurt contains more omega-3s and conjugated linoleic acids, both of which help prevent heart disease, inflammation, diabetes, and various cancers,” notes Stephanie Middleberg, MS, RD, CDN.
