quick question, are most/all yogurts not the best for us? I've been getting Greek Gods Greek Yogurt Plain and adding in the oat bran, flaxseed, udo oil, etc from your first cookbook and want to know after listening to the Kick Sugar Summit is the Yogurt bad? Thanks Dee

Hi!  I have changed my "diet" several times.  Listening to the Kick Sugar Summit made me think way back when my doctor said "You no eat sugar.  Sugar baaaaadddd for you!.  But I would oftentimes not listen to the doctor and get into sugar.  Then one program I followed you could have up to 5 grams of sugar, but no more.  For the last year and one month I have Kicked the Sugar habit entirely so that if the yogurt says "four grams (or more) of sugar, I won't eat it.  As a result so far I am down 34 lbs and 15 inches and the arthritis in my right knee is completely gone!!!!  So I am going with the Kick Sugar news!

Hi Marsha,
I always recommend plain whole milk organic yogurt.  The amount of lactose sugar in this type of yogurt is usually fairly low.  I personally do not worry about the lactose in yogurt because it is naturally occurring and is part of a whole food, much the same way the natural sugars in fruit are a part of a whole food.
There is no scientific evidence that the lactose in yogurt or the sugars in whole fruits are a cause of metabolic problems or sugar addictions--those problems are caused by added refined sugars.

Here's a pic of one type of yogurt that I recommend.  It's organic plain whole milk yogurt.  There are only 7 grams of lactose sugar in 1 serving, which is 1 cup.  You could reduce the serving to 1/2 cup and then the sugar would only be 3.5 grams per serving.

Below is a pic of the Greek yogurt of the same brand.  This one has 9 grams of lactose sugar per 1 cup serving.  If you reduce to 1/2 cup, you will get only 4.5 grams of lactose sugar.
Note that this Greek yogurt only contains organic whole milk. There are no fillers like pectin, gelatin or skim milk powder that other companies like Greek Gods add to their Greek Yogurt to thicken it up.

Thanks Dee, since we live up in Montana - I don't believe we have the STRAUS yogurt, but I was hoping that Greek God Greek Yogurt (Plain) was aok. I will check the ingredients for the info.
