Morning all.

My work is having a "pajama party" which is just an excuse to have a ton of food. The front counter is filled with doughnuts, bread, cupcakes, ect. The lead is even making pancakes and bacon later.
I knew this was happening so I planned ahead to resist temptation.

Breakfast - protein shake
Lunch- protein pancakes w/turkey sausage (so I don't feel I'm left out)
Dinner- Pork chops and green beans
Snack- Celery and PB2
I am also going to pick up a fruit platter to add to the Carbuffet later.

This is only my 3rd week on my WOE. If I can survive work today I can survive anything.

Honestly? I wouldn't. Most yogurt (especially the kind with fruit added, but even plain) is very high in carbs... the only yogurt I ever eat anymore is Carbmasters from Kroger which has 4 carbs in it, 3 grams of a sugar. But even that's become a rarity!

I guess it all depends on how serious you are about cutting carbs, and what your limit will be for yourself. "Low carb" means something different to everyone really. My low carb means less than 20 total carbs per day, so yogurt just isn't an option for me!

Do consider that eating that amount of carbs early morning for someone with emerging blood sugar issues may me unwise as well, because you'll have a spike early in the AM which will kind of set the tone for the rest of the day (and not in a good way).

Just my two cents

If you can find one that has no fruit, thickeners and has some fat (not 0%), then account for the carbohydrates, you may be able to keep yogurt in your menu.

Many people (including me) find plain Greek style yogurt with as high a fat content as possible, fits in quite nicely. Where I live, there is a 9% plain Greek style yogurt that I love and I add a bit of a.s. and vanilla extract to flavour it. I also make my own when I am feeling like it. It is quite easy and that way, you can totally control the quality.

Hmmm, does the inventor want to market his product?

This is only my 3rd week on my WOE. If I can survive work today I can survive anything.
I wish you luck! That would kill me! I am very proud of myself for surviving a kid's b'day party today, but that was only a couple of hours and not nearly as much junk food.

Diabetics (and probably non-D, too) have the hardest time with sugar early in the day. I don't know what Noosa is, but if it's not sugar sweetened, you might do okay with it, but it might be better for later in the day. I love full fat yogurt with truvia or liquid splenda and vanilla extract and/or cinnamon, so if it's sugared, maybe you could get plain and make your own. There're plenty of other flavorings out there, too. I don't actually eat it bc I try to stay well under 20 g carb/day, but compared to the standard american diet, it is a pretty low carb and satisfying food.

If I was you, I'd try to go LOW carb for real at least for a little while, like under 20 g per day. I know it sounds daunting, but you will get the benefits of ketosis which are pretty awesome -- low appetite and high energy.

I just ate 200 g avocado and 60 g fresh salsa and later I'll have 2 salmon burgers. I may also have a snack of 30 g mesquite almonds and/or 28 g cheddar/parmesan. I also had a treinta iced coffee at starbucks with an ungodly amount of HWC in it. Normally they put a reasonable amount in when I say HWC, but this one woman there insists on putting in the full amount, like the same as if she were adding milk, which is just bizarre imo. I did have her pour out a ton of it and add coffee, but still... So that may have been a 1,000 calorie coffee. lol Probly more like 350 cals, though. It got pretty confusing to see her pouring out and filling it back up, there was no keeping track.
