Greek yogurt is a current cash cow (pun intended), pulling in a whopping $3.5 Billion allegedly in sales this past year (source). People cannot get enough of it; demand has skyrocketed. Old-fashioned Greek yogurt is made with goat’s milk while American yogurt, and many of the American-made “Greek-style” products, are made from cow’s milk. (“Greek-style” yogurts may also contain thickening agents like condensed milk or gelatin.) All yogurt starts out the same, with milk and live cultures.

Want to know the truth about Greek yogurt? Greek yogurt is made by vigorously straining regular yogurt—that’s why it’s so thick and liquid-free. In fact, it takes four ounces of milk to ultimately result in just one ounce of Greek yogurt.

Misconception #1: Greek yogurt is always healthier than regular yogurt. Yogurt is produced by the bacterial fermentation of milk (usually cow’s milk). Greek yogurt takes it a step further by straining out whey (the watery part of milk) and lactose (milk sugar.

  • If I never get hunger for candy or some fat foods… I eat thin rye bread, and after that I have no hunger for some tasty treats, FR Im not joking, I’m just finnish!

  • You have to add in carbohydrates turn into glucose (blood sugar) which raises the total amount of sugar in a serving size. Also vanilla extract and cinnamon do contain sugar.

  • we in Bulgaria also use our yogurt for a face mask and after sun burn treatment. In both cases just get some from the container and slap it on your skin. When you get a sunburn, slap a thicker layer on, relax infront of the tv, it gets absorbed by the skin. the moment you place it, the pain from sunburn stops. and if you leave it for over two hours, your skin becomes as smooth as a babys skin. I have an oily Tzone, and when i use yougurt as a face mask, my skin imediately becomes matted, as if Ive used powder. I also have circlesmaround my eyes, and unlike other creams, Bulgarian yogurt, once placed on my eye lids, doesnt smear, doesnt iritate my eyes
    If you dont believe me? Try It.

  • its really depend on what company you choose & nutritional facts down there, you mention beans has more sugar and my favorite company has 4g of sugar for every 100g…

  • Thanks for sharing the food/nutrition videos. My favorite type of yogurt is plain Icelandic yogurt. It’s even thicker than Greek…I also use it as a good cream cheese substitute for desserts.:-)

  • Trap foods-very helpful. Used to pile up deli foods thinking Ill eat some protein! Eek ate a lot of black forest ham and mortedella

  • dont worry bout the fat… just be active and eat healthy.. you need fat to make use of a lot of vitamins and other nutrients xD  I wheep for humanity, what a retarded video

  • Loved the video but last time I checked the statistics on Yogurt consumption in this country the rate is over 5 million cups a day and not a million cups a year as was mentioned in the video. And that’s a good thing for this seriously healthy food!

  • I love yogurt but I definately can’t think about what it is! lol One day I do want to make my own BUT the easiest method I’ve seen requires an instapot which isn’t cheap! I know there’s other ways but my kitchen is timtom tiny!

  • Very good explanation! Just mention next time that in the Bulgarian Sour milk(I am not going to call it yogurt, it`s different), that the bacteria are in a very stable symbiotic relationships. This is the reason why they are able to ferment they way they do. And this is the difficult part in fermenting the product. BUT the good news is that they are prone to want to be in a symbiotic relationship and they more or less work with you. ALSO-Greek yogurt is strained OVERNIGHT. One more difference-when you incubate the milk, Bulgarian sour milk is NEVER STIRED!

  • You’re so right. That plain Greek yogurt is so tart by itself! I really like the idea of adding vanilla extract and cinnamon. I’ll have to try that! Do you have any videos talking about your take on 0%fat yogurt vs 2%? I’ve heard good and bad and would love to hear your point of view in a video!

  • yeah right it s like she said don’t eat greek yogurt because of the fat which is like ice cream??? she didn’t even mention that without the fat the absorption of the good nutrients is less.

  • 3:20 ��. Granola Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! I eat all in moderation. It’s been at least 4 weeks since l ate 4 tablespoons of beans. Deli meats are a no no.

  • i eat either fake greek yogurt or home made kefer and add frozen berries, if buying shop yogurt i make sure the carbs are under 7g per 100g

  • I guess this explains that since I’ve been eating 64 ounces of nonfat greek yogurt a day I’ve become and working out I’ve become vascular af!!

  • Was eating plain Greek yogurt during this XD. I got it because it has more protein and fat than the flavored ones and I’m trying to keep my weight up, plus you can use it in cooking or making dressings etc. c: enjoy

  • “Fake chicken or ‘ficken’ as I call it”… Well I’m now absolutely gonna point out that “ficken” is the German word for “fucking”. If that pun was intended, kudos to you, Jeff! If not, I think it’s kinda funny nonetheless.:-D

  • Both of them taste really good. Its shame that no on in Bulgaria is advertising good enough the Bulgarian yogurt the way greeks do it.

  • we eat plain Greek yogurt at my house. my son loves it! he’s 9 months old and I mix the plain chobani with his pureed baby food. I’m glad it’s the best option for us and him!

  • This is glorious, I been tryin to find out about “10 most fatty foods” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Meyaanit Fatty Escapeify (do a google search )? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my buddy got cool success with it.

  • great information! another thing to note is the price on those ones you showed with 18 and 16 g of sugar they are so expenive not to mention packed with sugar. as where the non-fat greek stuff in my opinion is (HUGE container from SAMS) is under $3.00 and lasts me about 10 days

  • More fat content in yogurt is absolutely fine and healthy as long as the sugar content is low. Mixing fat and sugar is not a good combination but fat with protein is a healthy choice. Too many people are scared of fat when around 60% of your brain is fat. Your body needs it! The secret is the right combination of foods and not eating all day but having around 1 to 2 meals daily and preferably in a 2 to 6 hour eating window.

  • Yes, I try to eat a good amount of greek yogurt. I have B12 anemia, and I give myself shots monthly, but I still try to eat what I can. Also, protein because of my CFS/ME. Great video c:

  • At first this tasted like straight of acid, but after the 1st week I got used to the taste and still try to eat Greek yogurt everyday.

  • What’s funny is that all the Greek yogurt brands are not the same as the ones we have in Greece. They basically sell them everywhere else but in Greece it seems. Kinda weird. I hadn’t even heard of Chobani until a few minutes ago. Not a single one of the popular Greek yogurt we eat here in Greece was even mentioned in this video.

  • And we are thinking about why Balkans are the gunpowder warehouse of Europe:read some comments,and you will understand that,Bulgarians are planning to exterminate Greeks FOR the yogurt!
    Good God!

  • Fantastic video about Greek Yogurt, I was looking for more information about it and your video answers every single important thing I need to know about it, perfect!

  • Many of those are fake greek yogurt. Instead of straining out the whey, concentrating the protein, while reducing the sugar, they add thickeners. The thing about the Oikos brand, is that it was used by Stoneyfield, which makes real greek yogurt. Due to the popularity of Oikos, Dannon bought the rights to use the Oikos name simultaneously for about a year while Stoneyfield Oikos was slowly phased out. Also Yoplait greek yogurt, was not only not greek yogurt, it wasn’t yogurt at all. After a lawsuit, they began making actual yogurt, but their regular line is still a mixture of industrial by-products thickened with fish gelatin to mimic yogurt, with none of the healthy bacteria.

    Also, just because you don’t like something, doesn’t mean it tastes bad. You don’t seem to understand that your opinions are subjective, and not objective. If you’ve ever wondered why people like ugly colors, while you like pretty ones, it’s because your opinions are just that, opinions.

  • The yogurt you guys are eating in the States is definitely not a Greek yogurt. It is unfortunately just a brand name. You need to come to Greece in order to eat the original thing

  • Food shouldn’t be delicious.That’s one reason why Americans are so obese. Food is to keep us alive. I would eat the plain yogurt. Eat to live not eat to indulge. Well except on cheat days. Everything in moderation right.

  • Sorry guys but as Greeks from Greece told me the other day, the stuff that is sold in America is Greek in name only. It is not actually Greek yogurt; they said it doesn’t even taste the same.

  • I’ve been binging on your videos and I love them! Most brands of plain Greek yogurt are too tart but the Fage 2% is so smooth and creamy. I totally recommend it.

  • I have to unfollow because it’s clear by this you guys don’t even do your research. So now I question everything I’ve ever heard from this channel. Never encourage dairy. It is never healthy to drinking the milk that is meant for the offspring of another species. It has growth hormones that are incompatible with our physiology and can cause hormonal disruptions in us. Among many many other unsavory side effects. If you need probiotics, there is an organic vegan brand called Ora. Comes in powder, a whole month’s supply which you can take in distilled water, or add to smoothies, etc. All the nutrients nd benfits people think they get from dairy can be supplied by ORGANIC FRUIT AND VEGETABLES. And in much more sufficient quantities. I’m sorry, but this video and everything in it is a load of hog wash.

  • I would have expected the regular yogurt to have more protein content considering the fact that whey where most of the protein is, is strained out to make greek yogurt.

  • Beware viewer! Chobani is not an actual Greek yogurt. It is not produced in Greece! The term “Greek” is a non-protected term that was used by the Chobani company to trick its customers into associating the product with famous Greek yogurt. However, it’s actually produced in New York. Fage is, on the other hand an authentic Greek yogurt. Buy Fage, who doesn’t lie to you about the product that it is.

  • I can’t do Greek yogurt. Idk what it is, maybe the texture since it’s so thick. Love regular yogurt though. can you do a skinny on just regular yogurt? or just recommend one that isn’t filled with ingredients I can’t pronounce lol please

  • As a Bulgarian I am happy to see that some people know about our yogurt. It is not really sweet, but it has not a lot of calories and it is quite tasty. We add it to so many foods.

  • But… Some lactose is bad. Took much Fat is not bad for your weight. Too much fat is bad for the heart. But, unsaturated fats are good. That’s why people LOVE avocado. Avocado has good fat. More than 29 grams of saturated fat is bad. But, trans fat is.worse. The FDA wants.to ban trans fat. So, eat your avocado with tomato,.onion, pepper, and sunflower/olive oil without worrying.

  • Love this. As a big yogurt fan, I wanna ask how do you choose regular yogurt? I don’t really like greek yogurt cos they are too thick.

  • I eat guacamole once or twice year (but eat avocado), don’t buy ‘low fat’ cakes/muffins (I bake occasionally, modifying original recipes accordingly it requires a lot more effort, so I can’t be bothered to do it more often), I stopped buying fruit yogurts long time ago (I buy natural yogurt & eat it with fresh fruit instead), I don’t like baked beans but my boyfriend loves them (we make the effort to buy low sugar varieties; our diet incorporates a lot of other beans), I used to make my own granola (but now we’re huge fans of porridge oats), I eat sushi…every few years, stopped drinking fruit juice years ago (eat a piece of fresh fruit instead & in moderation), I excluded deli meats completely over the past 7 years. None of this happened suddenly. It was more of a gradual change & became our lifestyle. When I walk to a food store nowadays, 75% of products become ‘invisible’ because of what they contain…

  • I got Greek yogurt from the market and I tried it and it taste like cream cheese it taste pretty disgusting to me and I put strawberries in it and it tastes all right I guess doesn’t really taste the best that’s why I’m watching this the reasons I should eat it

  • I am binge watching all your “The Skinny on” videos. These are really helpful! Could you make one about pasta? Is there really a better choice? I buy whole grain ones but idk.. I recently cut down the carbs a lot but I miss pasta!! Keep up the good work, I luv u girl xo

  • she is dead wrong on the sugar… 8 grams/ serving max..not 20… I always get the oikos with 6g of fiber as well triple zero mixed berry is my favorite

  • Yogurt is a power food for the Turkic steppingsfolk with horses in the history. Yogurt-Kebab-Baklava-Pide-Hingel/Manti is life for Turks. You can find this food in all Turkic countrys. It is also a Turkish word.

  • sometimes I add my own jam in a healthy portion size. I also take a quarter of a sugary yogurt and put it in plain nonfat greek yogurt

  • Thanks. I Love Yogurt,And I have a Ulcer. So by Eating, One Little Container of This a day. Means One Less,Pill From Dr. ��.�� ♡ I Also Love Milk. Helps Keep Bones, Strong!! I’ve Been looking into, Pro Biotics and Possibly Almond Milk.��

  • Here’s what I do I buy the Stonyfield brand Greek yogurt full fat whole plain yogurt. I add two packs of Stevia sweetener and frozen berries myself mix it all together in a big bowl.

  • It is admirable that Mr. Leech frequently includes screenshots of studies and research in order to corroborate his main points. Well done, Mr. Leech. This is why your subscriber-ship is steadily rising. In addition, that shirt that you have been wearing in recent videos is also responsible for improving viewership.

  • Thanks for another great video. I want to make you aware of another trap food. canola oil. It is made from a plant called rapeseed. This plant is poisonous. Canola oil stands for Canadian Oil It is made in the UK. It is not sold in the UK as food for consumption it is sold as a pesticide. Every fast food in America uses canola oil in their fryers. this is not an exaggeration

  • 7:49
    oh god… oh god no the german inside me can’t hold back anymore
    AHAHAHAHA

    (for context; Ficken means literally “to fuck” in german.)

  • My favorite combo with plain Greek yoghurt is definitely with apple, grapes and a bit of cornflakes with little chocolate curls:))

  • I am Bulgarian and I make a homemade yogurt. It’s super easy. All you need is full fat milk (organic preferably) and a Bacillus Bulgaricus yogurt starter. I buy the yogurt starter from amazon: @t
    Here is how I make it:
    Slowly heat 1 quart of pasteurized milk (I use this one:@t but you can use your favorite).
    Remove the milk from the heat and allow to cool (not completely).
    Add the Bacillus Bulgaricus yogurt starter.
    Pour milk into containers (jars), cover the mixture for 5-12 hours (I cover it with a blanket).
    Check after 5 hours to see if it has set. If it has not set, leave it for up to 12 hours.
    Refrigerate the yogurt for at least 6 hours. You can eat it at any time (refrigerating helps set the yogurt).

  • This comment section is a joke for the most part. Relax Bulgarians. You have a freaking yougurt ok, you didn’t open a colony on the Sun, or found the cure for cancer. All the sudden the comments try and make Bulgaria some kind of,, empire,, an utopian society. It’s funny because as it happens we had to drive through bulgaria and there must be two of them on earth becouse the one we saw was poverty, car theft, fake police that stop and steal everything you have at gun point and the list goes on. But like I said it must of been the other Bulgaria, not the,, empire of all things,, ����

  • This yogurt is not even remotely Bulgarian style! How do I know? Well, as a Bulgarian myself I grew up with yogurt which is embedded in our culture. There are hundreds of different brands overseas. Now, about this yogurt-like substance.

    1. Bulgarian yogurt is slightly sour but boy this thing is like you are eating lemons.

    2. The expiration date is in 3 months….yeah this one is a pile of BS. Good luck finding anything organic there. Commercial products of Bulgarian yogurt overseas are usually good for about 2 weeks. Homemade maybe 1 week.

    3. Clearly stated 24-hour fermentation. Another BS. No wonder it tastes so sour. It shouldn’t take more than 8 hours, otherwise, it gets really sour.

    The bottom line, do not even waste your money on this. You might as well buy Dannon which is still “fake” but at least it doesn’t break the bank and it tastes better.

  • Thanks for watching! Are there any health topics you’d like to know more about? Let me know in the comments below

  • Here are some of the shocking health benefits of greek yogurt that must know.

    https://www.foodgalleries.com/greek-yogurt-health-benefits/

  • Thumb down for bad advice here. HIGH FAT is what you need…NOT low fat. Avoid fruit/fructose.
    It’s 2019, not 1978 get with the data. Geeez.

  • A curious fact. Back in the early 20 century there was a population count done in Europe and it was found out that Bulgarians had by far the highest number of centenarians in the world. It was theorized that it was thanks to the health effects of Bulgarian yogurt since that was about the only unique thing in the populations way of life. It was even far higher that the current record holder okinawa japan. Sadly as the country industrialized and then fell under communist rule the way of life changed and now Bulgaria is rather low on the list of countryes with centenarians.

  • Originaly yogurt comes from Balkan peninsula. Its first records comes from the old bulgarians who made it from horse milk. I remember as a child how my grandfathers made homemade yogurt and originally bulgarian white cheese. It is tradition from decades here to consume yogurt. Its natural part of our traditional kitchen. There is nothing better from a homemade yogurt, my favourite is from goat. This is a super food. There is alot of interesting information about the history and usage of yougurt. Regards from Sofia.

  • yogurt in Turkey there are still those who do not understand it.The origin of the word yogurt(yoğurt=yoğurmak) is already in Turkish.

  • The true name of Bulgarian yogurt is Soured milk. I love our Greek brothers but their yogurt it’s totally different and it’s more like sour cream. Domestic soured milk is the best.

  • Well actualy non fat youghurts have a higher concentration of sugars in them to make them not taste gross and are more fattening than a high fat youghurt which gets its taste by nature rather than artificially

  • I love the Bulgarian yoghurt in Bulgaria and it is so much better than the Greek version. After all Greek yoghurt is a poor imitation of Turkish yoghurt. Of course this is due to the Turks being more highly cultured than the Greeks. P.S. I am a Scotsman therefore I am not biased.

  • People drink milk all around the world. Milk is one of the tastiest things for you in the world. I think it’s tasty I love the taste of it and there’s a lot of other things that can kill you to. So quit your bullshit vegan agenda and quit telling me that milk is fucking bad for me. Maybe it is but I’m still going to fucking drink it. And if you don’t like it tough shit, but your agenda doesn’t belong here.

  • You show a close up of the Nutrition Facts during this video that shows Total Carbs at 5g.
    Interestingly, when I go to the White Mountain Foods website and locate their Bulgarian Yogurts, they have Non-Organic and Organic Whole Milk Bulgarian Yogurt (both have Total Carbs of 9g) and then the same versions but made with non-fat milk with the Total Carbs at 11g.
    I’m curious as to the discrepancy here. (Serving sizes between the product in your video and those on the website are all 1 cup).
    For someone looking to remain under 20g of carbs per day, the 4g difference is significant. Can you offer any insight here, Thomas?

  • some very good information..I also like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgiwIlu4yaU&list=PLjARy3fYfN_VPnp1Y35aDT9STK6lJ_Dpx&index=3

  • Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus was first isolated in Bulgaria and that’s why it has that name. Otherwise it is naturally widespread and not only found in Bulgaria. What makes authentic Bulgarian yogurt a lot more special than all others, is the proven anticancer properties of a specific strain, called LB51, which is naturally occurring and widespread in Bulgaria and the only strain, out of about 70 tested, to show these properties, which is well documented. Naturally cultured/from environmentally present organisms/ Bulgarian yogurt will almost certainly have this strain, but of course, after d-r Ivan Bogdanov and his crew found about it in 1967, they patented the strain and now most commercially available cultures and ready to consume products are made with other strains of LB, cause one has to pay quite more to use the LB51 strain. So, unless it specifically states on the package, that the Bulgarian yogurt(or culture) was made with LB51, or it is a raw product, that was left to ferment by itself somewhere in a beautiful bulgarian village, it is most probably not any better than the Greek, just a bit more watery.

  • The Bulgarian yogurt I bought says 9 grams of carbs 5grams of sugar. How does this sugar come into play with insulin? Do you consumer 9 grams/a whole of cup of yogurt? Or half per day to watch spiking insulin or going over the 20 carbs

  • Love your channel! I have been watching your videos for a couple of months and I’m glad you are having more and more subscribers! Your advice on how to read the nutrition facts really helped me a lot!!!

  • I bought some Bulgarian yogurt today and boy, it is BITTER. Anything I can safely add that keeps it keto friendly yet cut the bitterness if even a little?

  • Question Thomas Can you look into Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk Probiotic Yogurt? Respect your pov. Promise you this is a legit question, not sponsored or anything. I love them as a company and I love their products. Their probiotic formula have over 40 billion live cultures that should theoretically eat off the milk sugars. Do you think this brand is safe to eat on keto or should I just stick with Bulgarian and Greek?

  • But what about Greek yogurt with zero fat and high protein content? Chobani has 9 grams of carbs, 22 gram of protein, and 0 fat. I realize the amount of carbs is not ideal, but this seems like a fairly lean form of protein.

  • It would be a shame if you did not build muscle when these other people accomplish it easily with Trim Fat Maximizer (check it out on Google).

  • Greek here…the problem is that this isn’t traditional yogurt. The traditional is not strained and has a thick layer of fat on top. Here the problem, your market requests yogurt as the one you are showing and not the traditional, that has a life of few weeks. Anyone from Bulgaria can tell us about theirs?

  • Thomas has many videos of how dairy is bad and stuff like that, so this video of him claiming that Bulgarian Yogurt is super healthy makes me confused? Can anyone collaborate on this one?

  • Too much of Jeße in this video, and I mean physically as well. I appreciate the effort of ‘trying to make these videos more interesting’, if that’s what you all were going for, but I m just looking for a straightforward, respectful, informative video with the least amount of time wastage. Otherwise, content very good thanks Jeff.

  • Hi there, have you tried “BELLYfatTACK” yet? Simply search on Google and you will spot bellyfattack.com On there you will discover a valuable free video by an established qualified dietitian revealing the right way to lose weight. This made it possible for Andre to lose his abdominal fat. I will probably give it a shot. It might help you out as well…

  • what kind of Bulgarian yogurt you have in the States? the standard BG yogurt is with 3-4 grams of fat, 5 grams of carbs, 3-4 grams of protein and about 60 calories per 100 gr. something with 8 grams of fat would be sour cream…

  • They say that greek yogurt is great and honey is very healthy and helpful. I feel like thanos eating greek yogurt with honey every day

  • Hello, your greek yogurt vlog is so informative. Thanks for sharing your valuable knowledge and research. I appreciate your effort.
    I have also found this video greek yogurt for weight loss which is very informative.please check out.

  • ‼️‼️‼️‼️ GREAT SOURCE OF POTASSIUM, HIGH IN PROTEIN, ZINC and Vitmain B6 & B12. it’s also low in sugar so I totally agree. ‼️‼️‼️‼️ TASTE SO GOOD

  • Mistake! Greek yogurt is not yogurt. Why? If yogurt is squeezed out of the whey it is no longer yogurt, it is already another product.

  • great i dont consume 90 percent of these. But i cant say goodbye to the fruit juice i just cannot live without a little cup of it everonce in a while.

  • I found Bulgarian Yogurt at HEB and I added a few drops of vanilla stevia!!! Yummy ������ I didn’t even know about Bulgarian yogurt until this video! Thank You!

  • I wish you could help me with my stomach I’ve been to a Gastro allergist I had to undergo go a CT scan upper G.I. and they still can’t find anything and the best bet that they told me to do is stay on antacid for the next few months everything I eat causes pain bloating and burning in my stomach

  • The very thought of a comparison is laughable. It is a blasphemy and a deadly sin to compare the Ambrosia from Gods which is the Bulgarian yoghurt to that inferior, starchy, sweetened up shit which is….well basically the yoghurt anywhere else in the world.

    Bulgarian Yoghurt is like Kazakhstan potassium. Everyone else has inferior yoghurt! I have spoken.

    We’re not “supposed” to be eating insects and other microscopic bacteria in foods, either, so with that in mind, never eat fruits and vegetables again, k?

  • a million cups a year in america?

    320 mill people in america, so your saying 1 in roughly 320 americans eat a single cup of yoghurt a year??

    mhmm:P

  • i recently bought a tub of chobani original plain yogurt it has a sour taste i didnt expect to have i force my self to eat atleast a cup of it for break fast accompnied by a banana and some grains and although it still tasted sour is makes me feel better through out my day

  • Some math: Yogurt = Saturated animal fat + Cholesterol + Puss + Cow hormones including estrogen + harmful bacteria + Feces. Its just unhealthy milk with bacteria, disturbing that people think it’s good for them. Marketing machine at work!!

  • I’ve read where the non fat yogurt is not as beneficial as the regular yogurt. Do you suggest the non fat yogurt only for its weight loss benefit?

  • how can a yoghurt have 9 gr of carbs left? are you not fermenting long enough so some carbs are left, or add carbs? those lil sweet bugs work hard to make acid to denature proteins slowly, and eat the sugars out. i suspect 9 gr one will not have the sour refreshing taste of yoghurt. it can be good for making sweet foods though. but i will allways see yoguhurt with its traditional sidekick salt and in or on savory dishes and soups. and as a drink of course. try fermenting a bit more, adding more starter yoghurt to the milk might help.

  • Much of the Greek style yogurt available in UK supermarkets (e.g. Asda, Morrison’s) often contain less protein per gram than their natural yogurt equivalents. Always check the label.

  • The Skinny on Almond/Soy/Coconut Milk?  or something along those lines?  I’ve been trying different types and I’m curious of your thoughts on them?  Thanks.

  • every yogurt need to change time to time regularly day after day. Bulgarian, Greek, Icelandic, plant and others to have different many type of bacteria. Thanks for video.

  • Damon light and fit is better. Only 7 sugar. Still has all the extra ingredients tho but I’m ok with it for a yogurt since I don’t have it everyday

  • For those watching cholesterol levels or staring down diabetes, use that yogurt in overnight oats. There are many great little youtube videos to get you inspired. This week I have had banana and chocolate, apple and cinnomon, fresh bluberries. Basically you can get variety while keeping to a healthy diet.

  • Hey, have you tried “BELLYfatTACK”? Just google it and you are going to spot bellyfattack.com There you can get an important free video presentation by an experienced physician revealing the right way to eliminate weight. This helped Madellane to reduce her stomach fat. Why not give it a shot. Hopefully it will help you as well.

  • For the shake of truth, Turkey can claim the origin of the name but not of the actual food. True, prototurk tribes were producing yoghurt in Asia but so as were the ancient Mesopotamians, Greeks (oxygala), Egyptians, etc: civilizations far more advanced than nomadic turk tribes of the time. It’s like claiming the origins of water.

  • What about the KOREAN YAKULT? We can buy it here and it seems to help, but now I am wondering?? https://www.shape.com/healthy-eating/healthy-drinks/yakult-probiotic-drink-health-benefits

  • Several years ago, a guy I knew had me to stop at one of those places that sell yogurt. So I tried it and it was good, tasted like ice cream. So I got to watching this TV show and the guy is always eating yogurt. So the other day I picked up some. It is kind of like pudding, creamy but tastes spoiled. I was watching my dog lick his butt and thought that is one way to get rid of the taste. But I am not going to that extreme.

  • I “fell off the wagon” last night with a small tub of black cherry yoghurt. I’m paying for it already with painful finger joints. My son had visited on the weekend and bought some & forgot to eat it.

  • How do you feel about four tablespoons of Plain Greek Yogurt (full fat) about a half cup of fresh blueberries, about two tablespoons of raw organic honey (from a local source) and a half cup of walnuts?

  • Trust in the Lord JESUS CHRIST with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Trust JESUS CHRIST, make Him the Lord of your life!

  • Videos like this which basically give you the myth that full fat yogurt is bad for the waistline…total BS! The result of your waistline ultimately lies with your calories in compared to your calorie expenditure it’s a simple as that

  • Dairy is for baby cows! sending people in the direction of drinking another mammals milk is insane. there’s no mention of the fact that many of these are just crude filthy second-class dairy milk with starches added to make them thicker tons of sugar or artificial flavors but worst of all another mammals milk that wasn’t meant for humans in the first place!

  • Dr. Gundry, I’m really enjoying The Plant Paradox. Thank you for writing it! I’ve discovered that many of those high-lectin inflammation promoting foods – like oats, wheat, lentils, and chickpeas are also loaded with glyphosate (Roundup). I’ve discovered that glyphosate is not only used as an herbicide but also as a desiccant to dry out grains such as wheat. Do any health outcome (like CHD) analyses exist where glyphosate food content/exposure is used as a covariate? And I wonder about this too: Suppose little just-turned ten-year old Johnny eats an average of four peanut butter and jelly sandwiches per week on commercially produced white bread with ordinary non-organic grape jelly. How much glyphosate would he be expected to ingest by his 11th year of life assuming he is average in all ways?

  • Any of these products is not a Greek Product is an American. We don’t have Chobani Or Oikos and the second one. yoghurt in Greece. So that’s not Greek yoghurt. And Greek yoghurt does not have corn starch. Don’t blame this to Greeks��

  • One thing I never I understood is why people have to discriminate others so that they can push their products etc…Greek products as well as yogurt has been around for thousands of years proven scientifically to be amazing!
    Never the less Bulgarians are coming out now with their yogurt which I am sure is good, but if it’s so great etc why don’t you people push it with your own marketing power rather than discriminating another product which thousand of people are using on an everyday basis and are fascinated by it!!!
    Why do people have to be so vindictive by saying Greeks have have nothing good etc…these people I consider to be peasant, jealous, uneducated and trash!
    If it wasn’t for the Greeks you guys would be on trees screaming like monkeys!
    I will not stoop as low as you throwing bitterness etc…
    All I know is that who ever graduates and gets a doctors diploma from Bulgaria, is never acceptable by any western country and they have to repeat major tests to be admitted!!!!
    That’s tells you the conniving system of many in Bulgaria! Not to mention that thousand of immigrants are in Greece from Bulgaria! Thank you for discriminating one of the few countries in the world that open the eyes and mind of humanity!

  • some very good information..I also like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgiwIlu4yaU&list=PLjARy3fYfN_VPnp1Y35aDT9STK6lJ_Dpx&index=3

  • Thumbs down on this video. Supposed to be an educational style video but doesn’t even address calorie content when talking about fat loss or gain.

  • This video is LOADED with false information. No wonder people go on these crazy yo-yo diets that don’t ever work. It’s all because of ridiculous videos like this! Your body NEEDS healthy fats in order the sustain life.

  • Westerner hypocrisy: support Greek claims against Turkey because they are Westernern + Christan. However nothing can change a truth. That is called ethymology: Yoğurt is a Turkish noun word comes from verb YOĞURMAK (impaste/knead). This verb is even used in all Turkic languages. If a Turk hears you guys call something like Greek Yoghurt will smile but don’t say anything. Because you’ll never admit Turkish cultural heritage. Greeks even claimed Baklava as their own just like they weren’t under Turkish rule 400 years but Turks were…

  • In the 90’s the UK’s NHS made adds against beans due to all the heart diseases they cause, which was bankrupting them. They were ugly as those car accident ads.

  • Just stick with the natural, real Turkish yogurt and don’t bother with the non-fat artificial stuff. This video is so irresponsible! The non-fat thing is on the markets only for 30 years tops and the regular yogurt is in our culture for thousands of years. Believe me, the think you eat as yogurt is something else. Only the yogurt marketed as “Greek yogurt” is close to be counted as something similar to the traditional normal Turkish yogurt. I know this comment will get a lot of negative attention for mentioning this but this is reality.. Don’t be afraid of the minuscule amount of natural fat in natural yogurt! What a misleading video. Good to hear it’s cancelled..

  • Eating fat raises metabolism=weight loss. Our brain consists mostly of cholesterol, a low fat, low cholesterol diet will makes us just as smart as a newscast reporter.

  • When I had a Bulgarian convenience store near me, I got the taste for their “Kiselo mlyako”, literally sour milk. They don’t call it yogurt. Nothing else comes close. It makes the stomach so happy! I began to notice Bulgarian working men shopping there. They all seemed to buy three things: Beer, sausage or salami, and yoghurt. This really should be more widely available. The business opportunity is immense!

  • Check out MagSRT to keep your system moving so you don’t have to live on Bulgarian yogurt.

    People need to eat too. Suggesting to take a supplement at the end of this vs. eating the yogurt makes me confused about how to EAT Keto.

  • I found this Bulgarian yogurt when I was looking for a much better option than my normal “Greek vanilla yogurt” which I knew it had a lot of sugar in it.
    This one was a little bit pricier but I was excited to try it out, honestly I didn’t like the taste at all, so I was wondering if mixing it with a little bit of honey will make it at least less sour, and still be healthy��‍♀️

  • I try to limit the consumption of yoghurt and fruit juice as much as possible. When you really calculate the sugar portions in it, it’s pretty shocking. Even the soy yoghurt ones they still add (white) sugar.

  • Hello, have you tried ” BellyFATtack ” yet? Just search Google. On there you will discover a helpful free video by a respected physician teaching on the way to reduce excess weight. It helped Andrew to get rid of his belly fat. I hope it will work for you too…

  • Hm, why is Lactobacillus bulgaricus not mentioned in neither the video or the discussions about the origin of yoghurt in the comments section? I can’t help but feel we’re all underestimating its importance.

  • Hey there, have you considered “BellyFATtack”? Just search on Google. There you can find a helpful free video presentation by a respected physician revealing how you can lose excess weight. It helped Bianca to eliminate her tummy fat. It may work for you also…

  • One of the things that drives me crazy with food products (especially greek yogurt) is the added gelatin! Trying to be vegetarian and find things without gelatin is a pain, but why is it even in YOGURT? It’s crazy to me. You just need milk! Lol.

  • please change the autofocus on your camera to manual to target your face. it’s hard to focus on you, when all of the focus is on those candles. they’re beautiful, but still

  • I love full fat regular yogurt! But I am not big fan of low-fat yogurt. Because they doesn’t taste good compare to regular one… I love yogurt because they taste good and good for health. So I choose regular, not low-fat yogurt.
