Yoplait Fiber One Yogurt

Congratulations #63 #40 and #44- purango, sharonjo, and Storm!

Please email financefoodie [at] gmail [dot] com with your mailing address so I can send your prize! You have three (3) days to claim your prize before it goes to an alternate winner

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

…Continued from Part 1 (see previous post)


I received a follow up email from the folks at MyBlogSpark shortly after posting my review on the Yoplait Whips and the Wanchai Ferry frozen meals. Apparently, they were disappointed to hear that the Whips were not to my liking for breakfast, so they remediated this situation by sending me a 4-pack of Yoplait’s new (breakfast appropriate) Fiber One yogurts. Once again, I pushed aside my attempt at learning to cook and agreed (not unhappily) to be the guinea pig for this project.


The Fiber One yogurts come in 4 flavors - vanilla, key lime, strawberry, and peach - and have only 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber per cup, which is awesome since I just started my “fit into my high school jeans” diet (again). The extra dose of fiber kept me really full until lunchtime and helped me avoid the office’s uber-tempting Peanut M&M jar. If I lived in a land of no calories, I would have McDonald’s McGriddles everyday for breakfast (McDonald’s – If you are reading this, I want to be your product tester! Call me!). But since I live in a world where staying fit and being slim are ever omnipresent, these Fiber One yogurt cups are certainly a tasty, low-calorie, and healthy alternative for my non-splurge days!

So happy news for you too my readers, since MyBlogSpark has also sent me THREE Fiber One Yogurt “Get Healthy” giftpacks (still a few more weeks left in swimsuit season folks!) to share with you all. Each giftpack includes: a Fiber One yogurt coupon for a free 4-pack of Fiber One, a lunch pack, and other storage items for you to carry your healthy snacks and yogurt. For a chance to win, just answer this question in my comments section

“What do you do to manage your weight?”

BONUS: an extra entry for those who “tweet” about this post on their Twitter. If you do tweet, please leave an additional comment with your twitter link.

I will pick THREE winners with a random number generator in 5 days (Aug 24). Comments will close at 5:00pm EST and winners will be announced later in the evening.

Look forward to reading your tips!

I try to have self control. I liked the whips but they were not outstanding, I liked the regular ones with the new flavors like the cinnamon buns ( and apple pie). Would love to try the fiber one and do love they have small portions so you can stop without forcing yourself to finish up a product.

I go running with my daughter when she is training for cross country and track. It gives us something to do together. It also makes me not worry about her running alone in the evenings and it helps keep me fit.

We live in a lake community, so I walk around our lake 4-5x a week to manage my weight.

I exercise (cardio and weights) 4-5 times a week and balance this with a (somewhat) healthy diet. Managing what you eat will let you lose your weight, and exercising is what maintains your weight, so you need to pay attention to both aspects!

Susan W said...

I limit my chocolate and sugar intake(this is the hardest),I try to do portion control & when possible drink LOTS and LOTS of water and try and up my fiber intake all I can.Its all about trying I think.

I use a Stevia as a sweetner and make my own iced tea instead of drinking pop so there aren't any empty calories, thanks.

Cody said...

I've radically changed my diet since the Spring and I've lost 30 pounds already. I try to keep a regular schedule and always eat a light breakfast (usually something whole grain). I eat a very light lunch and then a normal supper. I don't snack at all after supper before bed. Thanks for the opportunity!

I keep the junk food out of the house. Now that I am an adult, I have all the control of what's in my kitchen. I keep lots of fruit and veggies and lean proteins, and minimal snacking items. My only vice that I regularly indulge? CHOCOLATE. Always a Dove Chocolate bar on hand.

Amy said...

What a great contest! Two years ago I dropped 42 lbs and I have kept it off ever since! To manage my weight I learned to make better food choices which means eating at home instead of eating out or when I eat out I pre-check menus and make sure that I decide what I want ahead of time or I have the restaurant throw together something similar to a menu item without the unhealthier ingredients for example if it's a sandwich I substitute toasted buttered bread for wheat bread, eliminate cheese and have mustard instead of mayo. It makes me sound like the picky annoying girl but I always try to make the waiters work easy as well as make my choice healthier.

I try to start off each meal with a serving of fruit and a glass of water - it cuts down what I eat the rest of the meal significantly, and it's good for me!

I walk a lot and I stay hydrated

1993wel said...

I basically only drink water or hot tea or decaf coffee with a splash of milk. I steer clear of empty drink calories in sweetened fruit juice and soda. I occasionally splurge with a glass of wine, but drink calories can be very deceiving. It is too easy to drink calories that you don't even notice. Soda of any kind has no redeeming feature whatsoever.
