September has arrived and I decided that I want to start a new health regime so I decided to take the Activia 14 Day Challenge.
Activia has been advertising their Activia 14 Day Challenge for several years and I guess it’s about time that I gave it a try. Yogurt is supposed to be good for you, isn’t it?
Activia Yogurt contains a probiotic bacterial culture, an exclusive strain of bifidobacteria, called Bifidobacterium (animalis) lactis, or BL Regularis. We need some good bacteria in our digestive tract in order to digest our food properly, so it only goes to reason that eating a yogurt that has live bacterial culture in it would help out our digestive system.
I’m not normally a yogurt eater. My husband is. We always have yogurt in the house, but I usually only have one once a month or so. Obviously this is going to change over the next two weeks as I do the Activia 14 Day Challenge.
Yesterday I went out to the grocery store to scope out the selection of flavors. Activia comes in wide selection of flavors in both regular fat and fat free. Some of the flavor choices are vanilla, strawberry, prune, peach, apple and raisins, pear, raspberry, sweetened plain, peach and cereals, red fruits and cereals, apple-müesli and nuts.
I bought two 8 packs for my 14 day challenge. One of Fat free Raspberry and one Fat Free Strawberry and Rhubarb. Yummy. I have enough for at least one a day and a few extra for snacks. Of course, knowing my husband, he’ll eat a few, so I’ll probably have to buy a few more before the challenge is over.
So let’s see. I’m feeling pretty good right now, let’s see if I feel even better by the time I’m finished the challenge. I’ll post again next week at the half way point and tell you how the challenge is going.
Has anyone else taken the Activia 14 Day Challenge? If you did it, how did it go? Are you still eating Activia? What’s your favorite flavor?
