MyBlogSpark: Big G Cereal & "The Lean Belly Prescription" Book By Dr. Travis Stork Prize Pack Giveaway!



     Did you know that ninety-five percent of Americans do not get enough whole grain, according to the Report of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee? The average person only gets a little more than half a serving of whole grain each day. That is less than the three servings recommended daily.  


     Luckily, there is Big G cereals that can help us get more whole grain in our diet! 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.)

     Whole grains are helpful to have in your diet because it has been found to help with diabetes, weight management, reduce the risk of heart disease, and certain cancers.

     People who tend to eat cereal everyday for breakfast tend to have a healthier body weight than people who do not have cereal on a regular basis. Cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters. Weight management is more than just watching the calories. It's also about eating the good stuff- Big G cereals.  Big G cereals are made with whole grain and are nutrient-dense to help you start your day off right with brands you love, including Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios, and Total. Just look for the white check on the front of the box!

     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.

     I have been able to read a few chapters in this great book with helpful tips on how to lose belly fat. I love that this book has been keeping me hooked to want to learn more and keep on reading! I would recommend this book to everyone from what I have read already! Dr. Stork has great stories and puts everything into perspective to help you want to become healthier! Dr. Stork also gives easy weight loss tips that we should all be able to follow with alittle work.


     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. MyBlogSpark also encourages you to to check out what professional trainers from NBC´s, "The Biggest Loser" had to say about Whole Grain on a recent episode.





     Visit http://www.wholegrainnation.com/ for more tips, additional information about the benefits of whole grain and how Big G cereals can be a convenient and tasty way to help you manage your weight by incorporating whole grain into your day.

     Now for the exciting part, a Giveaway!
