    Question should we be using nonfat or 2% plain Greek yogurt and why.

    Technically you should use the nonfat Greek yogurt in order to save a little calories and not have to count the fat. However I find that regular Greek yogurt actually makes me feel more full. If you go for regular 1 cup counts for 1 fat serving for the day. Does this help?

    What is the calorie range of the greek yogurt? Can we use flavored greek yogurt in phase two!

    Awe thanks Jennifer!

    Robyn, no flavored greek yogurt, the sugar additives are not a good thing. As far as the Greek yogurt goes, my favorite brand is Chobani Plain non-fat Greek. In 1 cup there is 130 calories, 0 g fat and about 22 grams of protein. It has minimal ingredients which makes it a fantastic choice. Add some diced apples, a few dashes of cinnamon and a squeeze of a fresh orange and you have a very filling protein source.

    Hope that helps!

    That is also the brand I use but I use 1/2 cup with frozen strawberries, Spinach, Vital Protein and a dash of vanilla.

    My favorite 0% Greek yogurt is FAGE; it’s also a little cheaper. Yogurt, stevia, thinly sliced apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg make a great breakfast.

    What about having 3/4 cup of Oikos Triple Zero yogurt? 1 cup has 170 calories, and the stevia and vanilla flavor is already in it.
