Your question was: Which yogurt to buy for Nutrisystem?.
Hi all you Nutrisystem Masters! If I'm catching on to the guidelines correctly than my Yoplait Greek 2X Protien is too high in calories. Am I correct?.

Only 10 calories over the maximum recommended for yogurt, Bubbly-One. I wouldn't have it more than once a day or infrequently, tho...
Yeah, but only by 10 calories. I'd be more concerned about the REALLY high sugar count...
Get the plain one and add your own fruit. You can add some SF syrup, jam or splenda if you need to...
I knew the Nutrisystem Gurus would right on top of my question! Thanks Pam and Michelle..
I can switch brands without a big deal. I love any kind of yogurt and was sucked in by the "2X" protein!.
Good eye regarding the sugar too Michelle. I do not need that!..
I usually buy the store brand fat free light vanilla yogurt (kroger, publix) and add my own sliced fruit (great with sliced strawberries or nectarines). Right now I have the Publix brand in my fridge which is 100 calories...
Just noticed that you have ALREADY gotten to drop a med due to your new, healthy lifestyle. That is better than ANY reading on the scale! WOOHOO!!!!..
You want to check the protein grams per container. YOu are looking for AT LEAST 7 grams of protein. More is better...
Just checked, 7 grams of protein on the Publix brand, whew!...thanks for the tip...didn't even think to check that...
If you are doing Kroger check out the Carb Master. It has 12 grams of protein which is even better...
I love the Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt. 120 cal, 0 fat (I think), and 16g protein. I eat one almost every morning. Great on it's own or with the Nutrisystem Granola mixed in (then drink the 4oz milk separately).
The fruit flavors are good too, but more calories - around 150 each...
NS uses the ADA exchanges too...you could count this as 1 1/2 dairy servings..
I like the Greek yogurts, especially with all the protein, but they come in 5 - 6 oz containers and I think we are supposed to have 8 oz.
I found the Dannon Light & Fit Diabetic Friendly yogurt to work with the requirements. It is has 'Carb & Sugar Control' written on the container. The stats on the vanilla are - cal 45, fat 1.5g, protein 5g for 4 oz. I eat 2 containers (8oz) which makes the cal 90, fat 3g, and protein 10g. Seems to work perfectly...
Voskos is my favorite. Creamy, good with fruit, good in place of sour cream, high protein. Jillian..
The stats indicate it is only 10 caloires higher than an allowable yogurt. So I certainly would not count it as 1.5 dairy servings. The sugar is too high IMO, but if you want to use it, I'd count it as one protein, then make sure your other dairy/protein servings that day are on the lower calorie side...
