My Blog Spark asked mom bloggers like myself to help spread the word that every Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, with more than 20 Big G cereals delivering 16 grams or more. (At least 48 grams of whole grain are recommended daily.)
Plus, they also provided me with some great information to share with my readers.
It has been found that a diet high in whole grain helps with diabetes and weight management, and may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
Frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights (and that includes people who choose sweetened cereals).Cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters. Cereal consumption as part of an overall healthy lifestyle may play a role in maintaining a healthy body mass index.
According to “The Belly Fat Prescription,” by Dr. Travis Stork, MD and host of The Doctors, a large amount of research has shown that belly fat carries more health risks than fat stored elsewhere. In his book, Dr. Stork also offers several additional “Laws of Leanness,” including:
If you love to graze: Nosh all day long on your favorite fruits and vegetables to help keep your belly full
If you love fatty foods: discover which fats can actually strip away pounds
If you love soda: substitute more delicious drinks that can help you lose up to four pounds in four weeks.
Check out this special video with tips from Dr. Stork to learn more about how a healthy diet including whole grain can be simple to achieve. We also encourage you to to check out what professional trainers from NBC´s, “The Biggest Loser” had to say about Whole Grain on a recent episode.
