The whirlwind of looking slender with a flat tummy and having all the curves in all the right places has got into the homes of every man, woman and some older persons with wild personalities.

There are a lot of recommendations we get online and from trusted persons on how we can stay and look our best if we sacrifice some foods we love to enjoy.

Lets not get it twisted, maintaining a healthy diet is very important and so is exercising, but there are times we forfeit such practices although we try to adjust them inside our daily lives and schedules.

But what if we can win the war of eating too much and looking good all by finding a balance?

Digging a little gave insight and an opening to the mystical powers of Greek yogurt. Greek or strained yogurt isn’t just a fad it is a creamy rich yogurt with less sugar, more carbs, and a tart taste with an acidity that makes it easier for your body to absorb other nutrients while maintaining your flat abs.

A cup of plain Greek yogurt can help you meet the recommended dietary guideline of three daily servings of low-fat or nonfat dairy products. People who have lactose intolerance may also find Greek yogurt easier to digest because of the bacterial breakdown of the milk’s sugars.

Greek yogurt is packed with probiotics. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that can help boost your immune system and decrease stomach issues, such as diarrhea and pain.

This translates into a lower incidence of gas, bloating, and constipation, which can keep your tummy looking flat.

A certified nutritional practitioner and founder of Whole Life Balance, Shane Griffin made it open knowledge that without a healthy balance of good bacteria from probiotics, too much bad bacteria can build up and cause damage to our immune systems.

Greek yogurt can be a healthy and satisfying treat after a tough workout. Not only will it tide you over until your next meal, but it contains protein that can repair damage done by exercise.

Greek yogurt is rich in amino acids which make up proteins, and proteins are the building blocks for regenerating muscle tissue and repairing fiber damage.

You can try adding a banana or some berries to your yogurt for a nutritious post-workout snack.

Greek yogurt is also an excellent source of iodine. Your body doesn’t naturally make iodine, so it’s important to get enough through the foods you eat. Iodine is important for proper thyroid function, and the thyroid is essential for healthy metabolism.

A year long study in 2014 found that people who ate more than three servings of yogurt per week gained less weight than those who ate less than one serving, that is how beneficial yogurt is.
