Myth: Swapping Ice Cream for Frozen Yogurt Will Save You Calories

Truth: This switch may or may not have you saving calories. “Some people think because ‘it’s yogurt, it’s healthier,’” says Gans. But they’re wrong. “They think they can eat more of it, so they end wind up consuming just as many calories.” Plus, there are some brands of frozen yogurt that have almost double the calories of a light, slow-churned ice cream, which has 50 percent less fat. Bottom line: Read the labels and keep your portions in check.
