Yogurt – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight By Eating Lower-Fat Yogurts

Calorie Savings – Yogurt

Choosing the right yogurt is important if you want to lose weight.

Point is, in order to reduce excess fat and lose weight, we need to reduce the amount of calories we consume until they are lower than our calories-out. Exercise helps us to achieve this (by increasing calories-out) but we can also reduce calories-in by making better calorie choices.

Calorie Example – Regular Yogurt

  • 6 oz full-fat yogurt contains 190 calories.
  • Four times a week, that’s 39,520 calories, per year

Better Calorie-Choice – Light Fat-Free Yogurt

  • 6 oz light, fat-free yogurt contains 80 calories.
  • That’s 16,640 calories per year.

Calories Saved

If you substitute light fat-free yogurt for regular yogurt in this way, you save 22,880 calories, per year.

Weight Reduction Consequences of this Calorie Saving

22,880 calories per year is the equivalent of about 6.5 pounds of weight.
