    8oz plain full fat yoghurt 11.4 carbs. 8oz plain low fat yoghurt 17.2. As a rule of thumb. if it's "low fat" sugar is put in to make it taste nicer.

    Yep,remove the fat and thus the flavour and usually sugar is added to compensate.

    I only have plain low fat greek yogurt but I do read labels and compare them and make sure the ones I have are not higher in carbs than the full fat ones you can find some but I would not know about the low fat flavoured ones as I don't have those

    I would not worry too much about the fat, if you are low carbing its the fat that you will be using as fuel instead of the carbs
