Sharing: A yoghurt update
Did you know that almost ALL yogurts are bad news for your waistline?
“Light” yoghurts are absolutely terrible for you. Most “light” yoghurts are loaded with artificial sweeteners and/or high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is one of the top 3 WORST ingredients you could ever consume. It’s made of primarily fructose, a sugar that easily spills over to fat storage when consumed in sizeable quantities. HFCS is made from genetically modified corn!!!
HFCS spikes blood sugar and insulin like almost no other food or ingredient.
Also artificial sweeteners are exactly that. Do you really want to put chemically altered, man-made ingredients that don’t exist in nature into your body?
Bottom line, just because something is low calorie (i.e. “Light”) doesn’t make it a healthy choice, or even a choice that will positively affect your fat loss goals.
What about “fat free” yoghurt?
Hopefully we all know and understand by now that fat isn’t bad. Fat is a critical nutrient to both your health and your fat loss efforts and actually helps to naturally stabilize many important hormones in your body that play a key role in optimizing your body’s fat-burning environment.
Also, most fat-free yoghurt are LOADED with sugar.
There’s 1 type of yoghurt that we highly recommend you use as part of your fat-burning diet…and that’s Organic Plain Greek Yoghurt.Greek yoghurt has double the protein of regular yoghurt, so you get more protein punch in every spoonful.
Also, by choosing the plain variety you avoid all the extra, unnecessary, artificial ingredients along with calorie-boosting excess sugar. By going organic you’ll avoid the hormones and antibiotics that are otherwise generally injected in the typical cow.
