Daily Yogurt Intake Reduces Colds by 25 Percent

Yogurt Is Nothing to Sneeze At

Yogurt, like green tea, is one of those foods that I wonder why I don't eat more of. From the live and active cultures to its creamy taste, where can you go wrong?

Now that Fall is just around the corner I am starting to arm myself against cold season. Yogurt, of all things, is in my front line of defense. In fact, USA Today reported on a study that found subjects who ate 3/4 cup of yogurt each day had 25 percent fewer colds overall than non-yogurt eaters. And because it takes time for yogurt to boost your resistance to germs, the study recommends that you start eating the yogurt about three months before cold season, which is right about now. So add yogurt into your meal plans today, and hopefully you spend less time with a cold come November.

Fit's Tips: Try and keep tabs on the label to make sure it says "Live & Active Cultures," and I like to try and eat yogurt with the least amount of sugar I can find.

I think yogurt is one of the best food to satisfy our sweet cravings. It can also give you the following  health benefits: - Yogurt can help alleviate gastrointestinal conditions like constipation, diarrhea, and lactose intolerance, among others. - Yogurt can help boost your immune system. - For women, yogurt can discourage vaginal infections. - Yogurt can strengthen your bones and prevent osteoporosis. - And, yogurt can reduce the risk of high blood pressure. And with that, I say we all eat yogurt everyday! :) http://blog.deliciousdietsdesign.com

bellacu, the Greek yogurt by Fage is delicious - it's unsweetened, comes in low-fat and nonfat versions, and you can add in anything you'd like (honey, agave nectar, fruit, nuts, granola, a dollop of jam....).I can find it at my local grocery stores or Trader Joe's. Give it a try! :)

don't go for brands, go for the most local you can get that has only a week of shelf life.

I eat so much yogurt it's ridiculous. I eat La Yogurt or Yoplait Light because of the calories, but my favorite is Emmi Swiss Premium with grapefruit.

Is taking probiotic supplements just as good?
