MONTREAL, Feb. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Celebrating its 35th anniversary in Canada, Silhouette(TM) fat-free yogurt has long been a smart choice for Canadians who want to manage their weight sensibly.

The new Silhouette SatisfAction(TM) yogurt not only contains all the vitamins and nutrients of Silhouette 0+ with no fat and no added sugar, it delivers a revolutionary Protei-Fibres formula.
"One of the biggest challenges for people trying to stay at a healthy weight is keeping their hunger in check. Curbing your hunger is key to not eating extra calories. ," says Zannat Reza, Registered Dietitian.
"Scientific studies have shown that both protein and fibre increase the feeling of satiety. Silhouette SatisfAction(TM) contains both these key ingredients in a convenient, tasty and low-calorie product. As part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, Silhouette SatisfAction(TM) can help people stay on track with their weight management goals by filling the hunger gap."
According to a 2007 Ipsos Reid survey, more than one out of two women in Canada say they think about their weight every day and one out of five women say that managing their weight has taken over their lives.(3)
"Eating foods that curb your hunger between meals is a smart way to help manage your weight the long-term," says Reza. Silhouette SatisfAction, with its exclusive Protei-Fibres formula of milk protein and natural source fibre, has been proven to reduce the sensation of hunger.
In the clinical studies conducted by Danone , the results demonstrated that one serving of Silhouette SatisfAction(TM) as a snack significantly reduced hunger, desire to eat and increased fullness and satisfaction over the two-hour period following its consumption. Recent consumer research also shows that 87% of Canadian women found that Silhouette SatisfAction(TM) helped them feel fuller longer and reach the next meal less hungry.(1)
