Slimming Grains?

A study says that people who eat whole-grain sources such as brown rice, bread and certain breakfast cereals have less total and belly fat compared to those who skimp on fiber.
People who often eat more whole grains have trimmer waistlines, at least on average.

Other researches have also suggested that abdominal fat is a better predictor of chronic disease than body mass index particularly to older people.

Although soluble fiber from fruits and veggies and the mostly insoluble kind found in whole grains are both believed to be healthful, researchers found out that intake of whole-grain fiber was more closely associated with lower body fat.
