Chobani

Fat-free plain Chobani is one of the best options. The experiment found that all plain and fat-free branded yogurts were the best. While many of these brands also carry flavored Greek yogurt, purchasing them is ill-advised. Chobani yogurt cups with fruit on the bottom have a lot of sugar per serving, which negates the protein benefits of the yogurt. Chobani's flip-cup yogurts are a little better to eat because the yogurt is kept pure and separated from the dry toppings like nuts and dark chocolate. Overall, both Dr. Oz and Mark Schatzker recommend that you should add natural flavor like berries and honey to your plain Greek yogurt, rather than buy flavored ones in the store.

Exactly How to De-Escalate Aggression From a Stranger

Follow security Expert Bill Staton's important advice to keep yourself safe.

Have you ever had a tense interaction with a stranger in public? Perhaps your shopping carts accidentally knocked into each other or there was a misunderstanding in communication and the other person gets angry. You may wonder how you can de-escalate the aggression and exit the situation safely. So security expert Bill Stanton has your go-to advice for staying alert and protecting yourself in the face of verbal aggression and physical attacks.

THE INITIAL INTERACTION

Bill Stanton: "It always starts with something small, like someone being too close to you, or even more common, you get bumped by a shopping cart. You want to look at their eyes first -it may reveal emotional changes. But you can't rely on just that. Look at what their trunk is doing; a person's torso will reveal their intent. Body language like raising hands, heightened expression, tense shoulders — these are natural responses to a person who is feeling threatened and will escalate. They may begin to zero in on the space between you and them, and their voice will get louder and louder. You want to read this before it gets further and becomes explosive."
