When choosing a brand of yogurt, is it better to opt for one that is higher in calories and has more protein or fiber, or something lower in calories?
It depends on what you're hoping to obtain, nutritionally speaking, from your choice of yogurt. The best-tasting yogurt with the fewest calories and fat that has the most calcium would be my choice. Yogurt is a good source of calcium but does not naturally contain fiber. If you don't get calcium from other food sources such as other dairy products, tofu processed with calcium sulfate, salmon or sardines with bones, then you need to consider yogurt for its calcium content. If you're already getting fiber in your diet from other sources such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes, then whether or not the yogurt has fiber is not as important.
