Each Monday morning I seem to start a new diet program, only to “blow it” later that day. What doesn’t change, and hasn’t changed for MANY years is that whether dieting or binging I ALWAYS start my day the exact same way –
With a cup of coffee and a Dannon Oikos Yogurt.
That’s right, whether I’m being “good” or being “bad” I start the day the exact same way. Of course, being a bit of a Dannon Oikos fanatic I also end my day the same way (minus the coffee). When my doctor told me to increase my dairy (I have osteopenia), I figured “what better way to get the dairy that I need?” and feel like I’m having a thick, delicious treat at the same time.
My GOAL is to lose a bit of weight and by starting with a solid protein (Oikos Greek Nonfat yogurt has 12 -14g Protein (24%DV) while regular lowfat yogurt: 5g protein (10%DV) per 5.3oz.) , I ensure a good start to my day. This creamy-thick nonfat yogurt, made through a traditional Greek straining process contains twice the amount of protein of regular lowfat yogurt and 0% fat (with the exception of Dannon Traditional varieties). Plus, I LOVE the selection of FLAVORS that Dannon Oikos offers.
The countdown to summer has officially begun and we all want to look and feel our best, especially during these months. However, exercising, and maintaining a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle can be daunting, but with the right tools it can be as easy as picking up a spoon! This spring, Keri Glassman and Dannon Oikos are encouraging you to ‘Grab a Spoon ‘til June’ with rich and creamy 0% fat Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt to help you stay on track towards your goals while at the same time adding spice to your normal routine!
- Every Meal Is A “Monday Morning”. Focus on eating better, one meal at a time. Otherwise it can be easy to get discouraged – forget the worry! Your only mission: Make the next meal you eat nutritious, balanced and satisfying.
- Don’t Eat Around A Craving. Honor your craving with a conscious indulgence – take a few deep breaths and find a healthy alternative! Try satisfying your sweet tooth with Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt, it is nutritious but still has an incredible taste.
- No-Excuses Exercise. Sometimes the biggest barrier to working out is just getting there so a good option can be to make it as easy as possible—throw in a workout DVD or even going for a walk takes away excuses and gets you moving!
- Satisfying Proteins. A moderate-protein balanced diet with a reasonable amount of fiber, carbohydrates and the appropriate amount of healthy fats is the best way to maintain a healthy weight. Dairy is a great source of protein, try a creamy Greek nonfat yogurt like Dannon Oikos®–it has twice the protein of regular lowfat yogurt.
