  1. Love yogurt BUT carb count is high….multiply that x 3 servings….YIKES….

  2. Kerry… are you looking at regular yogurt, or flavored yogurt? I just checked my Fage greek yogurt and it’s 9 grams per serving, versus the Yoplait vanilla fat-free yogurt (hubby’s in fridge) that is 29 grams per serving. Check to make sure yours isn’t sweetened!!

    The carb are the naturally occuring milk sugars which are bascially eaten by the live cultures in your yogurt. Just don’t eat the yogurt that has the high sugar from the fruit preserves …get plain vanilla or just plain and sweeten & fruit it yourself!

    May I recommend coconut water for maintaining electrolyte balance?

  5. I would like to see more on utilizing Chia seeds in my Low Carb meals, I checked and apparently it is low in Vitamin K something I also have to control.
