Weight Loss Healthier with a Diet of Whole Grain Cereals

Although weight lost can be lost in several ways, not all may be healthy. Researchers have found that a high-fiber whole grain cereal diet is one of the healthy ways to lose weight.//
The study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association has found that eating high-fiber cereals not only help to lose weight but also gain some nutrients such as fiber, magnesium and vitamin B-6.
The study sponsored by Kraft, Dr. Kathleen J. Melanson, an assistant professor of nutrition science at the University of Rhode Island, and her colleagues followed over a period of six months 180 overweight, sedentary adults who were instructed to exercise and eat a reduced-calorie diet full of whole-grain cereals. Another group was told to only exercise and while another was instructed to exercise and eat a calorie-reduced diet without whole grain cereal.
It was found that participants in both groups which used a calorie-reduced diet lost more weight than the exercise-only group, with each individual who exercised and consumed a calorie reduced diet losing 12 pounds.
However it was found that the group using whole-grain cereals had a lower intake of saturated fat and high intake of fiber, magnesium and vitamin B-6 which indicated that the use of high-fiber whole grain cereals delivers a better profile of nutrients.

Another finding was a common deficiency in calcium and vitamin E among all three groups which led researchers to suggest that they didn't drink enough milk nor eat adequate calcium/vitamin E rich foods.

Most people avoid carbohydrates-based foods such as cereals in an effort to lose weight thinking that grain products could counteract their weight loss effort. Previous studies however do not support this assumption and has shown that eating grain products is not responsible for the obesity epidemic in the US.

According to Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a retired nutrition professor from Cornell University, said i n his book "China Study" the Chinese people in rural areas eat more grain products and still more calories, but they have much lower incidence of obesity." His studies have pointed the cause of obesity in the West in the direction of the high intake of fat and animal proteins.
