Dannon Activia Fourteen Day Challenge Completed

TakeActiviaTasteTest1 I finished the Dannon Activia Fourteen Day Challenge this week and was pretty pleased with it. In fact, I bought some more Activia the last time I was out grocery shopping! As a recap, Dannon offers a challenge where you can buy their Activia yogurt, try it for two weeks, and ask for a refund if you do not like it. Click the logo in this post to learn more.

I ended up being happy with the challenge for the following reasons:

  • The yogurt was tasty. This is good creamy and rich yogurt. I like the regular formulation in Raspberry best , but also tried Strawberry and Vanilla and liked both of those too. I recently b0ught the light version and it is fine too, but I think I prefer the regular more and it isn’t really all that many more calories.
  • With probiotic cultures, Activia is good for the digestive system. I didn’t experience any digestive problems at all during the challenge.
  • Yogurt is a great source of extra protein and provides a serving of dairy—something I am not always the best about getting so it helps assure that I get some calcium.
  • Yogurt is a great post-exercise recovery food. I ate it after running pretty regularly during the challenge.
  • Dannon Activia is easy to pack and carry, making it a good workday snack.

So, my fourteen day challenge was a success. Have you tried the Dannon Activia Fourteen Day Challenge?

Promising Appetite Suppressing From a Lip Balm? Promise Lip Balm

Promise Lip Treatment makes an interesting promise–it acts as a appetite suppressant. Containing oils of castor, coconut, spearmint, jojoba, evening primrose, sweet orange, grapefruit, lime, ginger, yerba mate, and vitamin E, it at least sounds pretty tasty! Does that suppress the appetite though?

The company website is pretty careful to say that it is not a diet product, even when alternating that with explanations of how use of the product can suppress the appetite. It does contain yeba mate and some other ingredients that can act as appetite suppressants, although I am more familiar with yerba mate being effective when ingested as a tea. I am a bit skeptical of how it would work when simply put on the lips. Heck, reading the ingredients makes me hungry! Mmmm…. grapefruit, lime and ginger!

In any event, it is there and makes some interesting claims. It also is pretty affordable and is likely perfectly fine as a balm. Like I said, it sounds tasty! Does lip balm have calories?

If anyone has tried it, let us know!
