Greek yogurt packs twice the protein of regular yogurt and takes care of 20 percent of your daily calcium needs. “Problem is, everyone likes to chew, and yogurt doesn’t always do the trick alone,” says Taub-Dix, who suggests adding in nuts, dried fruit, or cereal that is whole-grain, high in fiber, and low in sugar. If you’re not a fan of Greek yogurt, try a 2% fat variety, like Chobani 2% low-fat Greek yogurt. It’s creamier and only slightly higher in calories compared to plain nonfat Greek yogurt (130 versus 100 calories for 6 ounces).
