Find out which three ingredients may help you whittle your waistline.
"The vinegar is a new one for me. Already knew about the nuts and whole grains. "
It’s a whole grain—and swapping refined grains for whole grains may help reduce total body fat and abdominal fat, according to new research in the Journal of Nutrition. In the study, adults who ate about 3 servings of whole grains a day had about 2.4 percent less body fat and 3.6 percent less abdominal fat than those who ate less than a quarter of a serving. Researchers speculate that the fiber from whole grains may help you feel full with less food—and possibly fuller than fiber from other sources, such as fruit and vegetables. Aim for at least three servings of whole grains daily (one serving equals 1 cup of whole-grain cereal or a slice of whole-wheat bread).
