6 Excellent Greek Yogurts That Aid Weight Loss

Updated on February 8, 2017

Benefits of Greek Yogurt in Particular

Yogurt could be one of the best foods you can consume for weight loss.

It’s high in protein, it contains plenty of calcium, and it even has a probiotic effect on the body.

Basically, this food is loaded with nutrients that will help you stay healthy and aid in your weight loss efforts.

However, some yogurt varieties are healthier than others.

Many yogurt options are made with far more sugar than you need, and they may also contain artificial ingredients that are detrimental to your health.

Be sure to check the labels when you browse yogurt brands, so you know you’re getting the best yogurt available. The following is a guide to assist you in exploring some of the healthiest yogurts you can buy.

1. Oikos Greek Yogurt With Honey

Dannon makes a delectable Greek yogurt under the brand name of Oikos.

The variety made with a touch of honey is enough to satisfy your craving for something sweet, but it won’t add inches to your waistline.

This fulfilling food contains 13 grams of protein, which will help to keep your hunger from returning too quickly. This is a great product to bring to work for a midday snack, and it can also serve as a main component in a balanced breakfast.

2. Fage Plain Greek Yogurt With 2% Milk Fat

Another solid choice is the plain Greek yogurt made by Fage.

The 2% milk fat variety helps your system to fully absorb the vitamins in this yogurt that are fat-soluble, making it a better choice nutritionally than nonfat yogurt.

Because this yogurt contains some milk fat, it’s also creamier and more tempting than the nonfat type.

Additionally, this yogurt contains nothing but natural ingredients: yogurt cultures, cream, and milk. That means you won’t be inadvertently consuming artificial (and unhealthy) ingredients.

It's one of the reasons that a Greek yogurt diet works wonders for your waistline - with results noticeable in just a few weeks! Of course, you should toss moderate exercise into the mix...

3. Blue Hill Butternut Squash All Natural Yogurt

If you haven’t yet sampled yogurt in a savory flavor, you may be surprised and delighted when you do.

Once you try this, you’ll know that yogurt is not merely a dessert food.

Squash is a superfood that offers an abundance of essential nutrients for your body.

While this yogurt flavor is savory, it also contains maple sugar, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg – so eating this is like indulging in a delicious slice of sweet and savory cheesecake.

4. Siggi’s Icelandic Style Vanilla Nonfat Yogurt

Like Greek yogurt, Icelandic style yogurt is strained. This means that a serving of this yogurt offers more protein than the types of yogurt that are not strained. Although this variety contains no fat, it is creamier than many other kinds of yogurt.

The vanilla variety is sweet without being overwhelming. It’s made with Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, which gives it a traditional vanilla taste that is rich, sweet, and creamy. If you seek something for dessert but don’t want to sabotage your caloric intake, this is the yogurt for the occasion.

5. Chobani Chocolate Dust Greek Yogurt

Sometimes, only chocolate will satisfy your craving. Chobani’s answer to this craving is its Chocolate Dust Greek Yogurt in a two-ounce container.

Compared to other chocolate flavored yogurts, this one is surprisingly low in sugar.

The small container enables you to indulge your craving for chocolate without turning to highly caloric dessert foods. Portion control is essential when you’re trying to lose weight, and this handy container is easy to take with you wherever you go.

6. Chobani Simply 100 Blueberry Greek Yogurt

This is another ideal weight loss solution by Chobani. This yogurt tastes like sweet fruit, but it actually contains more protein than sugar.

It also contains no artificial ingredients, which means it’s great for your health as well as your waistline.

Additionally, this yogurt is kosher and free of gluten. If you need to keep your calorie intake as low as possible, the 100 calories in this yogurt will meet your need. Plus, blueberries are in the superfood category – so this yogurt variety will nourish your body even more than other kinds might.

Losing weight may be challenging, but you can take off pounds while still enjoying the food you eat. Yogurt is an excellent food choice if you’re trying to lose inches and pounds. Just be sure to select the types of yogurt that will truly help you to reach your weight loss goals.
