Fiber One Yogurt Fiber Friend Face Off Giveaway


This giveaway is closed. Thanks to all who participated.


We are a family that loves yogurt! We go through it like crazy around here so I was thrilled when MyBlogSpark gave us the opportunity to try out the new Yoplait Fiber One Yogurt.

On my journey to lose weight I try very hard to keep plenty of snacks around that are high in fiber. Fiber will keep you fuller longer and will help sustain you until that next meal.

We have tried a few of the Fiber One products. We really like the Fiber One granola bars, especially the Chocolate and Oats. I am always on the lookout for coupons for these guys and I stock up when they are on sale. They are really delicious, almost like a candy bar but much more filling. We also love the Fiber One Toaster Pastries. They are all delicious but the Brown Sugar and Cinnamon are my favorite. I also feel much better about my girls having these for breakfast on a hurried morning than I do plain old pop tarts.

This was our first chance to try the yogurt. I purchased the strawberry and it was a huge hit. It is very creamy and smooth and dosen't really taste like it is "good for you" food. I was lucky the kids let me have 1! :) We will definitely be buying the yogurt again.

Are you getting enough fiber in your daily diet? If you are not sure you can head on over and take the Fiber Friend Face Off. This is really cute!

While there you can create your own personal avatar, or Fiber Friend. You then face off against a weekly opponent to help learn about daily fiber requirements and the health benefits of fiber. Just by registering, players are entered in a sweepstakes for a chance to win great prizes including daily gift cash cards, weekly Flip Video camcorder and a grand prize trip-for-two to a luxury spa in Arizona.



Here are health benefits of fiber that I found on the Fiber One website:


Digestive Health

* The most recognized benefit of fiber is its important role in keeping the digestive system running smoothly by promoting regularity. Fiber adds bulk to help move food through the digestive tract.
* Along with regular exercise and plenty of water, fiber plays an important part in maintaining digestive health.

Heart Health

* Fiber – specifically soluble fiber – may also help lower blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing the risk for heart disease. Fiber appears to lower cholesterol by interfering with its absorption in the digestive tract.

Diabetes

* Fiber may also be important for people who have diabetes. Diets high in whole grain and fiber have been shown to help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Weight Management

* Getting enough fiber can also help curb your hunger and help you feel satisfied, which can help with weight management. Research suggests that people who have higher intakes of fiber tend to have healthier body weights.
* High fiber foods, like Fiber One cereal and Fiber One Honey Clusters®, may help with managing caloric intake.

Most of the time, I get about the right amount of fiber. I eat a lot of fruits and veggies at least during the week. On weekends, that's another story.
