Giveaway - 2 Week Tune-Up with Yoplait Light

New Year, new you? Well, I have decided to be proactive this year and really work on creating a better, and definitely slimmer, me. You might have seen my Mamavation application, or my weekly Monday weigh-ins as I journal my weigh loss journal. I am also began Yoplait Light's 2 Week Tune up. This is the jump start I needed to get my breakfast and lunches taken care of. The plan is simple,

    * Replace your breakfast and lunch with a Yoplait Light yogurt, whole grain,
       and a fruit

    * Eat a diet rich in lean protein and non-fat dairy, including a sensible dinner, beverages, and snacks

    * Walk  for 30-40 minutes daily

My first morning here is what I had,

I had a cup of Yoplait Light Very Cherry yogurt with a Tablespoon of wheat germ, along with a bowl of corn chex and blueberries. Yum! The yogurt was smooth and the light version was just as delicious as the full fat version. I don't usually buy light, so I was pleasantly surprised.
The Two Week Tune UpTM plan is based on a recent study. This study demonstrated that women lost a significant amount of weight when they replaced breakfast and lunch with a Yoplait® Light, a grain, and a fruit as part of a reduced-calorie, structured meal plan rich in lean protein, along with walking. Get more info about the study here
With 33 great flavors to choose from, it is hard to get bored. You could eat a different flavor every day for the tune up and not have to repeat any. Choose either regular or thick & creamy. 

Find support at and under the Two Week Tune Up find tips as well as sample meal plans to help you along the way. I loved that I could even select my favorite yoplait flavors to incorporate into the meal suggestions.

I am still working through my two weeks and am enjoying it. I only wish that Yoplait used  natural sweeteners in their products. The light yogurts contain asparatame which lists a warning for phenylketonuriacs, so I have to be especially careful around my children who both have PKU. I hope in the future Yoplait would consider using honey or other alternative sweeteners. I know that doesn't affect many other people, so I would still recommend Yoplait Light to my friends.

Okay, anyone up for the giveaway?
