I love eating yogurt in the morning for breakfast. My favorite yogurt is Chobani Greek Yogurt. However, I have been noticing that after I eat this particular yogurt my blood sugar sky rockets!! This doesn't happen with any other yogurt, just Chobani. Anyone else having problems like this. . . I just don't get it.
Try a "light" yogurt , which has less sugar.
The Fage Greek yogurt (with Fruit) even though it is not light, does not spike my blood sugar. I don't eat the Chobani flavored yogurt as it is too high carb.
My current favorite, from a BG control point of view, is Dannon Light Greek Yogurt. Each container is only 9 grams of carb and it tastes pretty good. The other light yogurts are around 16-17 grams and the regular yogurts are around 25 grams.
I am glad I found this thread. I have been afraid to eat yogurt and I used to love it. I will try this one.
what kind of Chobani is it? There are lots of choices. How long does it take after you eat it for your blood sugar to sky rocket?
I'm actually surprised. Chobani is a greek style yogurt which is usually pretty low carb. If it is plain yogurt, it is even stranger. I make my own yogurt, half cream and half milk and I ferment it for 12 hours. It is very low carb and quite rich. Add a few fresh berries and you are good to go.
Perhaps you actually have a milk allergy? That could cause an inordinate rise in blood sugar.
You might do better using the plain yogurt and added a little bit of your own fruit instead of buying a flavored yogurt.
Do you eat plain or flavored i eat plain non fat every morning cuz i realized the flavored ones are loaded with sugar prob a fast acting one sense its flavored yoplait makes a weight watchers greek yogurt very good
We do our own yogurt, it takes few hours and is easy and cheap. Then you add what you like, honey, marmelade or nothing at all.
Often the yogurt you buy is rich in added sugar.
To do plain yogurt you use a yogurt "machine" for few dollars like this:
Then you mix UHT milk (it has to be UHT to be steril, otherwise yogurt bacteria cannot grow, they are weak ...).
You add a few spoons of plain yogurt, which has its own bacteria alive, switch it on and during 8-9 hours (by night for example) you get it.
Pour away the liquid you'll find above and keep the white cream: that's your no sugar yogurt (only milk carbs).
Put it in the refrigerator and it should last 3-4 days.
The only "difficulty" is to find out the right time to leave the yogurt building up: too few and it's liquid, too much and it gets too acid.
Try and repeat ;-)
