is it normal for yoghurt to be this high in sugar?
if so, wouldnt this slow down loosing bodyfat if your cutting?

get rid of it if you wanna cut
not natural yoghurt thne. most fruit flavour yoghurts have sugar added so they are sweeter.
That is normal for yogurt, yes.
Go with the plainest yogurt you can find, organic would be best, and add your own sweetner/fresh fruit. The yogurts that are "strawberry" "peach" etc have too much added sugars.
I think that would be fine for cutting as long as it fits into your plan. Losing fat is not a mystical science and the rules don't get super strict until you're at the very low percentages.

Watch out for the 'fat free' yoghurts (Danone Silhouettes among others, IIRC) . . . they are usually packed with aspartame

wiz, there was some BS about aspartam causing cancer, impotence, death etc... just like creatine and toast.

a 1994 study published in Neurology (Vol. 44, No. 10) concluded that it appeared some people were susceptible to headaches caused by aspartame.
There is a whole lot of conflicting reports about good/bad effects of aspartame. As usual, it's hard to judge which are right and which are wrong....
My opinion: aside from the poor taste of most artificially sweetened yoghurts, you're putting a chemical into your body that you don't need to; natural yoghurt is pretty decent food on its own; why mess with a good thing?
