Chobani Powers USA

Fitness isn’t just about supplements and weight training, it’s about eating healthy foods to fuel your body too.

When Chobani hit shelves here locally, the news quickly spread around the gym. This healthy snack was not only delicious, but it was higher in protein than regular yogurt. That’s why we literally have a whole drawer dedicated to it in our refrigerator. We actually eat so much of it, we have an overflow in our 2nd fridge in the garage.

There really aren’t a lot of snacks to choose from that are naturally high in protein. Before Chobani yogurt, the closest thing we could come to was cottage cheese. And, if you are like me, there is no way anyone is getting that lumpy mess down my throat. I just can’t get over the texture.

Then Chobani came and saved the day. Before Chobani I was eating regular  yogurt, which can have double the carbs as greek yogurt, especially if you get the kind with fruit in it. It also had practically half the protein Chobani has. For a girl who’s not a big meat eater, the more protein I can get the better.

Why Eat Chobani? Well, for my fitness peeps, eating high-protein snacks, like Chobani (and Designer Whey bars, my other favorite high-protein snack), means preserving muscle and giving your body what it needs to repair muscle after hard workouts. For my non-workout folks, it means preventing muscle loss, which is even more important as we age.

This is why there was no surprise Chobani sponsored for the Olympics. What a perfect FIT! (pun intended!) They naturally power people every single day!

Way to go Chobani! Thank you for powering me – and Team USA!

  1. I love chobani! I have one a day.. so Yummy !

  2. How do you feel it compares to Oikos Greek yogurt? They’re pretty comparable right?

    • Probably pretty similar. I’ve bought Oikos before, but my hubby likes all Chobani’s flavors – and we really love the company and what they are doing in the communities and online.

  3. Do you worry about how much sugar is in this yogurt?

    • No. I worry about overall quality/balance – fats/carb/protein. I would worry about sugar if that was all it had in it and it didn’t have good fat & protein in it, but it does. When it comes to weight loss/maintenance, it’s always calories in vs calories out. So calories is the most important thing. Then it’s the substrates (protein/fat/carbs). I always try not to have something that is super high in carbs and sugar but low in fat & protein. The more balanced it is, the longer it stays with you and fuels you. 🙂
