Should we be labelling food good and bad? Does this help form a healthy relationship with food?
For example a fullfat organic yoghurt with say 15g sugar per serve…now some will say well theres a lot of sugar in there not a good choice. Too much sugar compared to what? Some will say well what about the rest of this persons diet? What are their goals, what are their health issues? When you access a food in regards to eating it you have to consider the big picture not just how high the sugar content is before you cast something out. Perhaps a lower sugar option might be better but it’s not necessary to cut out all sugar from your diet, doing that may have someone craving sugar and may end with and unhealthy relationship with food, perhaps you might become obsessed about it? It is always about context, the quantity and how often sugar is consumed.
But overall the person who eats this has a low sugar diet and they like the idea of yoghurt but don’t like taste of natural yoghurts. No blood sugar issues, no fatigue etc so keep eating the yoghurt unless you have a reason not to have it. Always look at their overall diet and symptoms, not just singling out one item. A suggestion might be to get the natural yoghurt and just add your own honey or maple to taste.
