Need to lose weight you gained over the winter? Clinical research proves that a reduced-calorie diet that includes yogurt can encourage fat loss.
It’s swimsuit season again all over America. That means many Americans are seeing our “winter” body for the first time since 2010—and we’re not happy.
“An easy, stress-free way to help lose weight you gained over the winter is to incorporate Greek yogurt into your diet,” says Grothe. “VOSKOS®’ Web site includes dozens of Greek yogurt recipes for low-carbohydrate breakfasts, appetizers, entrees and snacks.”
Several scientific studies have linked weight loss with yogurt consumption, says Grothe. “Greek yogurt has been called a ‘fat-fighting food’ because of its high calcium and protein content. Plain Greek yogurt is also very low in carbohydrates, making it diabetic-friendly.” And a diet that includes yogurt can help target a common “problem area”—belly fat. A study published in the International Journal of Obesity showed that dieters on a high-calcium yogurt lost 81% more belly fat than dieters on a low-calcium diet.
Grothe’s choice? Plain Greek yogurt from VOSKOS®, made by California’s family-owned Sun Valley Dairy.
“A 227 gram (8 oz) serving of plain non-fat VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt contains 24 grams of protein. That’s half of the DV.”
When you add Greek yogurt from Voskos to your summer weight loss strategy, you don’t feel deprived, says Grothe. “A 227 gram (8 oz) serving of VOSKOS® Plain Non-fat Greek Yogurt contains 24 grams of protein—that’s half the recommended daily value. The protein in VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt helps you feel satiated because it takes longer to digest than carbohydrates. If you feel full longer, you’re less likely to graze on junk food.”
VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt has been recognized in awards contests presented by Fitness magazine, Women’s Health, Vegetarian Times, Natural Solutions, Self Magazine and Cooking Light magazine. It is also a triple gold winner of the 2010 Los Angeles International Dairy Competition.
