Taking the Activia 14-day Challenge

Posted 09-20-2010 at 01:01 PM by admin

I’m not a big yogurt eater and I wouldn’t say that I’m irregular either.  But, this challenge got me thinking that maybe it would help me anyway.  I saw the commercials and figured that I had nothing to lose.  S0, I loaded up on a large pack of Dannon Activia Yogurt and took it home.  I couldn’t decide on what specific flavor to get so I opted for the variety pack which had Vanilla, Strawberry Banana, and Peach.  Every morning for about 2 weeks I ate the yogurt for breakfast.  I have to admit that the taste is what got me.  It’s just good.  Again, I’m not a big yogurt eater and I haven’t tried other brands so I’m limited as to comparison tastes.

About three days into it, I was ready to used to my routine.  It’s such a simple breakfast and being that I tend to be on the go, it was easy to grab the yogurt and a spoon and be on my way.  I know, eating eggs and whole grain toast would probably be better but I just don’t have the time every morning for that.  These little yogurt containers are simple to carry around.

I can’t say that my system has been rearranged or that I am now the epitome of healthy living.  The yogurt helped in many ways and the biggest one for me was noticing the importance of breakfast.  I tend to skip that meal (I know many others who do too) and eating this yogurt every morning helped me to want to eat breakfast.  That in itself was worth it.  So, I was not suffering from irregularity to begin with but I still feel better.  It’s weird but I look forward to eating yogurt more now.  I think I’m going to start trying different brands to see which, if any, I enjoy more.

    I LOOOOVE the Yoplait Light, Thick and Creamy yogurts. They have awesome flavors like blueberry pie, orange creamsicle, and cinnamon roll. So good and only 100 cal.

    I agree that it’s a great start to the day. But it’s a bummer to throw away all those little containers! (Some may be able to recycle them, but it’s still not ideal.) I suspect you could get the same convenience and health by picking up a couple large containers of organic yogurt and pre-serve them into little glass (or plastic, if that isn’t a concern for you) containers and have them ready to go in the fridge.

    I think you’ve just inspired me! :)

    They sell the Activia yogurt in tubs too, that’s usually what I buy and then have a 1/2 cup in the mornings. I love the yogurt and when I had GD with my pregnancy I had to switch to a different yogurt but now that I’m back to eating Activia everyday I definitely notice a difference and it is one of the best tasting yogurts by far.
