Greek yoghurt - how much to eat

(21 Posts)

I've only recently got into eating breakfast and one of the things I've started eating for ease and because I like it is greek yoghurt with berries.

I buy the fage big tubs, rather than the smaller ones as it seems more economical. I wanted to ask what would be a normal portion. At the moment I seem to be going through about 3 portions for each tub. Is that about right or too much?

I'm wondering because one it's not cheap so I don't want to be overeating it and two I'm trying to be fitter and healthier so want to make sure my portion sizes are sensible.

I do 3 portions per tub too.

I have no idea but I have 100g.

You mean the 1kg tub? Splitting into only 3 would be a lot of yoghurt to have in one go.

I have 100g yoghurt plus 50g blueberries and 2tbsp flaxseed.

Third of a 500g tub is 166g or about the same as a muller light individual yoghurt so not really excessive.

There are a few own brand greek yoghurts now, (not Greek-style) the aldi one is not too bad.

Just checked it's the 500g tub!! Didn't realise you get a 1kg tub too blush

So I'm eating roughly I suppose 167g in a that too much?

Normally with a handful of berries. Do I need to up the berries?

Oohh notme why do you add flaxseed?? What does that do?

JollyGiraffe Wed 21-Feb-18 11:41:15

grin yes I meant 3 portions out of a 500g tub.

I think it says on the tub that it's 3 or 4 portions

I only do 100g because I measure out my portions - you could try it and see if it's enough for you? Are you trying to lose weight?

In the blood sugar diet I think one portion for breakfast is 150g with berries

paap1975 Wed 21-Feb-18 11:45:59

I think a portion is supposed to be 125g, so 4 portions in a pot

Tesco do nice full fat Greek yogurt in 4 100g pots which aren't too pricey. Not quite the same as Fage but I really like it. Agree the aldi stuff is ok.

I buy the Onken 1kg tubs and one lasts me about a week. So I'm eating roughly the same as you. I have never dieted, I just eat what I want so wouldn't know what it weighs.
I have about 2-3 tablespoons with fruit each day at lunchtime. I use any fruit - grapes, dried figs, home grown fresh or frozen depending on time of year. I'll also open a can of peaches now and then (there is a thread about tinned fruit).

It is one of the Blood Sugar Diet breakfasts. I never ate flaxseed before in my life. Adds fibre and aids "regularity" I believe, certainly makes breakfast feel a bit more substantial.

Yeah flaxseed is good for the digestion - essential on a LC diet tbh.

GreatDuckCookery Wed 21-Feb-18 12:15:47

No idea of the amount but I usually have about 3 desert spoonfuls with berries and seeds. Couldn't face anymore than that!

GreatDuckCookery Wed 21-Feb-18 12:16:21

Dessert even!

Lesciteesdor Wed 21-Feb-18 12:17:41

125 g + 80 g of fruits

I think 100g of Aldi Greek Yoghurt is about 120 calories - so whether you have more or less will surely depend on how many calories you wish to have at breakfast.

I'll second the Tesco's own brand not sent Greek yoghurt it's bloody gorgeous
