healthy_eatingWhen you are eating well and trying to lose weight, yoghurt may very well be a common item in your shopping trolley.
It’s a great way to get your recommended daily amounts of calcium and protein, and it also tastes great.
While there are many different types of yoghurt, some good ones for weight loss are Greek yoghurt, or natural yoghurt.
They tend to have less added sugar than the fruit flavoured or ‘low-fat’ or ‘non-fat’ yoghurts.
But if you are at a loss for ways to get yoghurt into your healthy eating plan, look no further…
