Dietitians recommend the #1 Whole Grain for Weight Lo
When losing weight, pasta, rice, corn, bread, and potatoes are frequently avoided.
"The first thing many people do when they try to lose weight is cut carbs; the food group that often gets removed is whole grains," says Kim Kulp, RDN, owner of Gut Health Connection in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Regardless of how many die-hard keto supporters there are, our bodies require carbohydrates for energy.
So, before you pass up the air-popped popcorn, keep in mind that not all carbohydrates are created equal.
"Yes, whole grains have carbs, but they're also high in nutrients like B vitamins, folate, iron, zinc, and magnesium." "They're high in fiber and antioxidants," explains Kulp.
Whole grains with nutrient profiles that differ from refined grains include brown rice, oats, barley, and spelt.
"It is critical to understand that for grain to be whole, it must contain all parts of the grain, including the germ, bran, and endosperm."
"That is where the magic happens in terms of health benefits," says Pritikin Longevity Center's Kara Burnstine, M.S., RD, LDN, CDCES.
