"Activia Challenge" from Dannon yogurt


I just started this 4 or 5 days ago and have not noticed any difference. It's early days yet, and I've never been on a yogurt regimen before. Just wondering if any of you have done this challenge and if it worked for you?

not so witty

It's just a new line of yogurts from Dannon that specifically include bacteria to help regulate your digestive system. Supposedly, you try it for 2 weeks to make a difference in your health or your money is refunded. It is a little more expensive than more basic yogurts, but on the plus side it tastes great! It has nothing to do with being more active... other than your bowels maybe. :/

Funny you should bring this up...

my doctor suggested I should try this yogurt because the probiotics and it helping digestion. I did not notice a huge difference myself because I didn't have big digestion problems to begin with. I have a friend who has problems in this dept though and she said after the first few days of being bloated while taking it, she was very very 'regular'. Anyhoo, I think people with gastro problems probably benefit the most from this. Then again, I am sure if most people just tweaked their diets and added fibre etc, it would have the same effect. It was cleverly named Activia though eh? Even the commercials have people working out in them... hahaha...gotta love marketing!

It worked for me!

I've never been what you would call, "regular", but since eating Activia each day, I have become very regular!
I wondered whether or not it was the yogurt or just coincidence, so I went "off" Activia for a month. That was a mistake! The bloating came back along with my irregular 'activity' and within days of starting back with Activia, voila!

I have read that in order for the live cultures to work to maximum effectiveness, a pro-biotic like Activia needs to be taken in every day and when you stop, so do the benefits.

thanks, MJ!

Haven't noticed a huge difference so far, but I have missed a day or two here and there - maybe that's why. I'll give it some more time...

whoo hoo!

Ok, into week 2 and it's the best thing ever! This may be one dietary regimen I can actually stick to. Also, I think I may have lost a pound or two - although that certainly wasn't a goal for me in this regard.
