Eating whole grain foods is not as easy as it sounds. For most people,they claim that whole grain foods tastes flat, they do not have a taste and therefore do not opt to have them.

An easy way to eat more whole grains is to switch from a refined- grain food to a whole-grain food. For example, eat whole-wheat bread instead of white bred. Read the ingredients list and choose products that list whole-grain ingredients first. Look for things like ‘whole wheat’, ‘brown rice’, ‘bulgur’ ‘buckwheat’, ‘oatmeal’, ‘rolled oats’, ‘quinoa’, or ‘wild rice’.

Fiber helps in weight loss since fiber stays in the stomach longer, you feel full for longer. This feeling helps avoid unnecessary eating, thus eating less food. Fiber also provides you with energy while exercising and push more fat out of the body.
