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:
