im from the UK aswell mate,
i think your looking at the wrong yougurts. you need to be looking for the natural yogurt. as stated above i use the brand “rachels” but you can even get tesco own/ asda own brand it doesnt matter as long as its plain natural with no flavours like strawberry bannana etc…..
what does matter is the ingredients which should just be milk and thats it and thats why its allowed on ALL STAGES of the diet coz theres nothing else in it and definately no sugar. if you still cant find it look for greek yogurt and again go for a plain one with no flavour and youll be fine.
Hi mate – I’ve looked into those yoghurts and they look like they have 5g of natural sugar per 100g for the greek one. So eating half a medium tub would be more sugar than most of the fruits banned in stage 1. There is no artificial sugar in them, but there is plenty of natural sugar.
Here is the nutrition information where you can see the 5g sugar:
I just need someone to explain to me why yoghurt is allowed when it has quite a lot of natural sugar in it compared to foods that are banned.
