The Health Confusion Between Greek And Regular Yogurt CLEARED UP!

Filed under: FoodAdviceLisa DeFazio

Eating Greek yogurt is becoming increasingly popular these days. Although it is smoother, has a stronger flavor and is less sweet than regular yogurt, is it healthier for you?

Here's food for thought:

- Both the non-fat and low fat kinds of these yogurts are healthy for you, because they are loaded with calcium and "good" bacteria.

- The same serving of Greek Yogurt is thicker, has half the sugar and twice the protein as
regular yogurt.

- A 6-ounce serving of Greek Yogurt contains 15 to 20 grams of protein or the same amount in 2 to 3 ounces of lean meat. While the same serving of regular yogurt contains only 9 grams of protein.

- If you are watching your carbs, Greek Yogurt has about half the carbs as the regular kind—5 to 8 grams per serving, compared to 13 to 17 for regular yogurt.

Fran Drescher's Fit Tips For A Healthier Lifestyle

Filed under: Exclusives!Fran DrescherQ&AHealthAdvice

Regular visits to the doctor are an integral part of maintaining good health. Without that trip, you might not find out about life threatening illnesses or diseases until it's TOO LATE!

For some people, however, going to the doctor is scarier than death itself!

Lorraine from New York is having trouble overcoming her fear of the doctors office, so she wrote FitPerez health correspondent Fran Drescher for advice, asking:

I know I should go to the doctor, but I’m just so nervous to go. How do I overcome the fear?

According to Fran:

Tina, nobody loves to go to the doctor. (Unless he/she is a good looking, single and loves your dog Fluffy!) But you need to realize the only person who can take care of your body is YOU!

Bring a trusty friend with you to your appointment and always go prepared with questions, especially if you haven’t been feeling like your usual self. And believe me, your body WILL tell you when there’s something wrong. If you don’t feel like your doctor is giving you the attention or answers you deserve, find another physician.

It’s not personal, it’s your life! Your doctor should make you feel comfortable, informed and motivated to be and stay healthy.

Jamie Lee Curtis Loves Talking About Doo Doo!

Filed under: FitnessFood

It's good to be regular!

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis says she loves being the spokesperson for Activia yogurt and talking about bowel movements!

She explains:

“I have a job where I advertise yogurt that makes you poop and that people love and people tell me about their bowel movements every day. Now, I’m not a doctor but I actually feel the way a doctor gets thanked by a patient and I get it all the time. All I can tell you is I’ve been in a lot of movies, I’m the daughter of very famous people, I’m married to a very famous guy, I do a lot of things.

"Nothing else in my life, nothing else gets people coming up to me saying, ‘You’ve changed my life. Because of you and that product, it is off the charts, my life is different.’"

Ha!
