Why? "You walk in and pour as much yogurt as you want into a cup, before you pile on the toppings," says Dubost. "By the time you're at the register, you're up to the caloric value of a meal."
Here's the frozen yogurt nutrition breakdown: One Pinkberry medium-sized cup of the original tart flavor gives you 46 g of sugar -- 46! Throw on some yogurt chips and you're adding another 8 g of sugar. Assuming you opted for just the yogurt chips instead of the complimentary three toppings, you've just consumed 54 g of sugar -- or about three Twinkies worth of the sweet stuff.
Eat this instead: "Frankly, there are low-sugar and low-fat ice creams in the grocery store that have less calories and sugar than some of these frozen yogurts," says Dubost. Try Dreyer's Slow Churned No Sugar Added Ice Cream.
