What are your health and wellness goals? Get more exercise? Have more energy in a day? While everyone’s goals are different and there’s no one single right way to improve your overall wellness, eating Greek yogurt can help. Greek yogurt provides a wide range of health benefits that can help you reach your wellness goals.
Goal: Get more exercise
A popular health and wellness goal is to get more exercise, and for good reason. Regular exercise can improve your physical health, including strengthening your cardiovascular system and reducing the risk of certain diseases, as well as improve your mental health, including reducing stress and improving your mood. If your goal is to get more exercise, try adding Greek yogurt to your routine. Greek yogurt made with TopTherm Performance Support Greek yogurt starter cultures can help athletes and others get extra support before, during and after strenuous sporting activities to help maintain your performance at top levels.
Goal: Eat healthier
Eating healthy, well-balanced meals may support your heart and gut health, improve your mood, reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and so much more. If you’re aiming to eat healthier, adding Greek yogurt to your meal plan can help. Greek yogurt is a great source of vitamins and minerals, including calcium for strong bones, potassium, vitamin B12 and more. It also offers protein to help keep you full. If you make Greek yogurt at home using our yogurt maker, your Greek yogurt will also be lower in sugar than many flavored store-bought yogurt products.
Goal: Have more energy
Starting the day with too much sugar can lead to a “crashing” feeling later on. Instead, try starting your day with a meal high in protein. For example, the protein found in Greek yogurt will help keep you feeling full longer and provide energy. Since Greek yogurt isn’t loaded with sugar, you may find you have more consistent energy and don’t experience a crash later.
Goal: Lose weight
If losing weight is one of your goals, Greek yogurt can help. The protein in yogurt helps you feel full, which can help prevent you from consuming too many calories in a day. Since homemade Greek yogurt is low in sugar, it can also help you consume fewer calories than if you were to eat snacks and meals higher in sugar. Greek yogurt may also help increase your metabolism, which can help you burn more calories. Even if your goal is to maintain a certain weight rather than to lose weight, Greek yogurt can help you reach your goals.
Goal: Better overall health and wellness
If you’d like to simply feel better overall, eating Greek yogurt can help. The probiotics found in Greek yogurt can help keep you healthy by supporting your immune system as well as providing health benefits for your heart, gut, metabolism and more.
