Yoplait Light- Do the Swap (Giveaway)

When trying to lose weight, it can be really difficult to maintain a new diet if you make many drastic changes all at once.  The weight may drop off quicker, but what good is it, if it all comes back once you can no longer maintain that diet?  I find that making small changes, 1 or 2 at a time, allows you to change your lifestyle, without feeling like you are depriving yourself.  The weight will come off a bit slower, but you will be happier and healthier in the end.  Yoplait Light also feels the same way and has created a "The Yoplait Light Swap" as a way to remind people that by making simple substitutions, like swapping one item from your diet per day for a 100 or 110 calorie Yoplait Light, you can cut unwanted calories and help yourself feel great about daily diet choices. Through swapping tips for food, fitness, and fashion, the "Yoplait Light Swap" can help remind you how rewarding one simple change can be.   Here is some information from Yoplait Light:

  • Yoplait Light yogurt offers 33 different options to choose from in fruit, pastry and dessert flavors that contain around 100 calories or less, providing endless swapping options.

  • Visit to share your favorite food, exercise and fashion swaps, find recipes and quizzes. Alison Sweeney, host of "The Biggest Loser" and author of The Mommy Diet, offers this Top Swap Tip on how she maintains her weight with a hectic schedule.

    • "I'm all about easy solutions, and making simple swaps in my diet helps me lead a healthy lifestyle while juggling everything else. I swap a slice of my favorite red velvet cake after dinner for a cup of Red Velvet Cake Yoplait Light which can save me almost 300 calories, without even thinking about it."

  • Swap your way to fabulous with the following tips from fashion guru, host of the Style Network's "How Do I Look?" and correspondent for NBC's upcoming series "Fashion Star," Jeannie Mai.

    • Swap the bus for a 15 minute walk on the way home, and you can save 60 calories.1
    • Boost your confidence in seconds by swapping more low-key flats for a pair of colorful heels.
    • Expand your wardrobe without breaking the bank by swapping clothes and accessories with your girlfriends.
