Whole Grains For a Smaller Waist?
Back to the Basics with Whole Grains

US MED Gives Back

When you calculate the calories in your weight reduction diet, be sure to include the value of whole grains.


An important clinical study of people age 20 to 65 shows that dieters who included plenty of whole grains not only lost more belly fat, they reduced an inflammation marker linked to diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.


Over the 12-week study, all dieters got the same weight-loss advice, but half of them ate whole grains instead of refined grains. The two groups lost the same amount of weight, but the whole-grain group lost significantly more fat from the abdominal region than those who ate white bread and other refined grains.


Senior researchers for the study say a lot of foods claim they contain whole grains but are not really major sources.


They recommend finding products in which at least 51 percent of grain comes from whole grain. Examples of such foods include oatmeal, whole grain cereal, brown rice, granola bars, popcorn and whole-wheat crackers.
