I got sick last week and I had to get some antibiotics from the doctor. The nurse recommended that I eat yogurt to keep my good bacteria from being depleted. I absolutely detest yogurt but during my last round of antibiotics I found that I can find out Yoplait Whips. Unfortunately, these have a whopping 25g of carbs and 21g of sugar each!!! The worst part is that I am being forced to cheat and my cheat food is something that I don ' t even like! It ' s only for a few days and my questions are: Will I have to go back to induction when I ' m done or can I just continue as I have been doing? Or, better yet, does anyone have another solution besides the dreaded yogurt to avoid a yeast illness? Help!!

You can get freeze dried bacteria at places like GNC. I forget what it is called, but it would be in the digestive health section.

Acidophillus is good for preventing a yeast infection while taking antibiotics. It is available in many forms. You can get freeze - dried capsules from a health food store.
Here ' s a yogurt that ' s low carb:
Danon Light and Fit Carb and Sugar Control. It has 3 net carbs per serving.
There are more and more products available with beneficial bacteria cultures added ( other than yogurt ). Check one of the major drugstores near the Metamucil section. Also, look in the cottage cheese / yogurt section of your grocery store.

Thanks! It looks like I will be checking out GNC and health departments of the drugstore. That low carb yogurt sounds like a winner too.
