Types of Yogurt for a Low-Carb Diet
音量
Hi, I'm Kaytie Sproul, here for About.com, and today we're going to take a look at what types of yogurt are good for a low-carb diet.Shifting from a carb-heavy diet, to one that greatly reduces them, can be a struggle for many. However, finding great tasting, low-carb foods that fill you up, such as yogurt, can be a key to success.Here's a look at what types of yogurt to seek out and what types to avoid on a low-carb diet. Most low-carb diets aim to replace the simple carbs commonly ingested with protein or high-fiber alternatives. While each specific low-carb diet has their own limits on how much yogurt a dieter can consume, all of them consider yogurt to be an acceptable food. It's high in protein, can be low in fat, and in many cases has only a negligible number of carbs.That said, not all yogurt is created equal. In fact some can even do your weight loss mission more harm than good. A visit to your local supermarket will clue you in that there's no shortage of flavors, types, or variations of yogurt, but knowing what works for your low carb diet can be tricky. For starters, you'll want to make sure that the yogurt you choose has active live cultures in it. Yogurt is made from milk, which has lactose in it - a naturally occurring sugar. As we know, sugar means carbs and that's a no-no for any low-carb diet.The current prevailing wisdom by GO-diet author Dr. Jack Goldberg is that these live cultures eat the lactose in the yogurt, thereby reducing the amount of sugar and carbs. Remember, all yogurt is made with live cultures, but you want to be sure that the label says that is contains active live cultures. One of the more popular varieties of yogurt on the market is Greek style. Despite being low-fat, this type of yogurt is characterized by a thick, rich texture, and commonly features live cultures. Another benefit of some Greek-style yogurt is that it's strained. Straining cuts carbs by reducing the lactose and thus increasing the protein.
Flavored yogurts are a favorite of many and can be enjoyed on most low-carb diets. You just need to make sure that a sugar substitute is used to sweeten the yogurt, otherwise it won't qualify as a low-carb meal. While there are dozens of yogurt options that benefit a low-carb diet, there are several that don't make the cut. Yogurt featuring fruit on the bottom is a favorite of many. However, fruit is often frowned upon during the first phase of many low-carb diets and fruit within yogurt often features added sugar. Another carb concern comes from eating some non-fat yogurts.
As detailed on About.com's Low Carb Diets Site, some non-fat yogurts have added non-fat milk powder which is usually high in lactose. This increases the carb count and works against your low-carb diet goals. Low-carb diets are a great way to lose weight, and yogurt can play a crucial role in your meal planning. Just be sure to read the labels on any yogurt you plan to consume to ensure that it's the right kind for your diet.
