Thanks for posting the article, Nelie (since the link says it's no longer available). I have to say that I was a little disappointed. They're basically comparing whole grains to refined carbs and saying that whole grains help reduce belly fat. I think most of us on the 3FC boards would say, "well, duh!!!" to that one. I think most if not all of us know that refined carbs are weight gaining and that whole grains are much better not only for weight loss but for health. So this doesn't seem like news.

Now if they would have been comparing a group where people ate a high percentage of their calories from whole grains while another group ate most of their calories from protein and another from fat and said the whole grain group showed better weight loss around the belly, that would have caught my attention and been something interesting ...

Holistic healthy living is not just about food and exercise - it's about the whole person, body, mind, and spirit
