Dear Valued Subscriber,
Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky.
Whole Wheat Has No Weight Benefit.
wheatbombshellAccording to the May issue of British Journal of Nutrition, while it has been proposed that whole wheat may be beneficial in weight regulation, possibly due to effects on satiety, this current study found no evidence supporting the theory. The short-term effects on appetite and food intake of 48 g of whole-grain wheat (daily for 3 weeks) compared with refined grain (control) was evaluated in healthy, normal-weight adults.

The study found no effect of whole wheat on appetite or food intake in healthy individuals. However, the whole wheat consumed daily for 3 weeks did have a beneficial effect on systolic blood pressure. The findings therefore do not support epidemiological evidence that whole wheat is beneficial in weight regulation.
