It's not a diet food or a health food

There are people who have cut out other dairy products but still eat yogurt and consider it a healthy choice. Yogurt has been sold as a "diet" food that can help you lose weight and keep you healthy.

Most yogurts are loaded with either sugar or artificial sweeteners. The sugar counteracts the probiotic effects of the yogurt, and the artificial sweeteners....well, take a look at our videos on artificial sweeteners for more about that. This applies to nondairy yogurts too!
