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.
