Hmm. I love Greek yogurt so it's never been an issue for me. THough I have never seen the Chobani with anything more than 2% fat and it always seems flavored. I find it way more chalky than Fage. I actually completely dislike that Chobani stuff, TBH. If you have a Trader Joe's near you their 2% Greek is very yummy and less tart than Fage. Normally we all eat full fat. (Totally enrages me that yogurt makers make "kids" yogurt with low fat and high sugar--total opposite of what they need. And I don't buy the notion that fat is the devil.)

I mostly eat plain yogurt with maybe some healthy simple granola and/or fruit. Since I'm on this low-carb thing now I use a bit of stevia sometimes to taste something sweet and creamy. We buy a big tub of it at a time and my kids love it with honey, bananas, any kind of fruit. In the kids' smoothies I put a few drops of maple syrup or a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder.

You could also stir in some jam--I use low sugar for my kids (not fake sweet) but you could also use whatever fits in your eating plan.

Most yogurt on the market is total garbage. Beware the Greek "style" yogurt. Since it's become so popular some brands are selling yogurt artificially thickened with chemicals. Blergh. But, yeah! If you don't like yogurt find something else you like! I personally think fat-free yogurt barely qualifies as food. Maybe a little fat will help. Smile

I'd much rather have 1/2 a serving of yummy creamy yogurt than a huge bin of something that tastes like wet chalk. If you don't like the food you are eating, you are going to go back to eating the stuff you don't want to eat anymore.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.

There are basically two things that make food taste good. Fat, and sugar. If you get a Non-Fat, low-sugar Greek yogurt it's not going to be good. You can learn to eat it, even "like" it, but it will never taste "good" as long as you eat other sweet/fatty foods. Your taste buds will always be comparing!

If you don't mind some dairy fat in lieu of the sugar, don't get Fat-Free. Full-fat Greek yogurt, plain, is SOOO GOOD. Now, you might not want that much fat either, but perhaps a 2% variety like FAGE Total 2% with some fruit will be your ticket...

I agree with eKatherine, you need to like what you're eating to be successful. Just my $0.02
