As I step outside into the heat each day, there is no denying that summer has arrived here in Florida. Unfortunately, being 34 weeks pregnant, I am anything by ready for swimsuit season! Really, who is? It is that dreaded time of year where we all wish we had worked a little harder to get into summer shape. Dannon Oikos has teamed up with dietician and author of Slim, Calm, Sexy Diet Kerri Glassman, to bring you the “Grab a Spoon ’til June” campaign. This campaign focuses on making everyday healthy choices to help you track your goals this summer!
Top Tips from Dietician Kerri Glassman
– Every Meal Is A “Monday Morning”. Focus on eating better, one meal at a time. Otherwise it can be easy to get discouraged – forget the worry! Your only mission: Make the next meal you eat nutritious, balanced and satisfying.
– Don’t Eat Around A Craving. Honor your craving with a conscious indulgence – take a few deep breaths and find a healthy alternative! Try satisfying your sweet tooth with Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt, it is nutritious but still has an incredible taste.
– No-Excuses Exercise. Sometimes the biggest barrier to working out is just getting there so a good option can be to make it as easy as possible—throw in a workout DVD or even going for a walk takes away excuses and gets you moving!
– Satisfying Proteins. A moderate-protein balanced diet with a reasonable amount of fiber, carbohydrates and the appropriate amount of healthy fats is the best way to maintain a healthy weight. Dairy is a great source of protein, try a creamy Greek nonfat yogurt like Dannon Oikos®–it has twice the protein of regular lowfat yogurt (Oikos Greek Nonfat yogurt has 12 -14g Protein (24%DV) while regular lowfat yogurt: 5g protein (10%DV) per 5.3oz.)
