Some popular books about diets say you should remove from the diet wheat or gluten to become slimmer. But the leading associations of dietitians, and the world health organization, it is recommended to consume cereal daily, and at least half of them should be whole grains. If you don't have celiac disease, gluten intolerance or other reasons, to reduce the amount of cereal and you want to give your body maximum benefit, do not exclude grains from your diet.
Whole grains have all of the original kernel — bran, germ and endosperm — in their original proportions. Refined grains the bran and germ are eliminated. Whole grains (if it is a complex product) should be listed at the beginning of components at the packaging of this product. And don't be fooled by bread that looks healthy because it's brown. It can simply be painted or molasses with brown sugar.
1. Grains are important sources of many nutrients, including dietary fiber, several b vitamins (thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, folate), and minerals (iron, magnesium, selenium).2. Dietary fiber from whole grains or other products may help to reduce the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood and reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity and diabetes type 2 diabetes. Fiber is important for normal bowel function, helps to provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.
3. The vitamins thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin play a key role in metabolism — they help to free up the body energy from proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Vitamins are also important for a healthy nervous system.
4. Folic acid is a vitamin that helps form red blood cells. Women of childbearing age who wants to get pregnant should consume enough folic acid from foods. This reduces the risk of serious diseases of the fetus during its development.
5. Whole grains are sources of magnesium and selenium. Magnesium is a mineral used in building bones and releasing energy from muscles. Selenium protects cells from oxidation. They are also important for a healthy immune system.
As you can see, grains are involved in the most important processes in our body. And as soon as we deprive your body of certain substances, excluding a whole group of products at once may fail in health. So do not give up cereal, especially because their caloric content is low enough and with the right number of them impossible to recover.published
