Whole Grains May Not Always Be The Way To Go

Leave it up to scientific studies to confuse us, just when we thought we were getting it right. In a new study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, it has been determined that eating whole grains may not always be the best choice for you.

After looking at 500 different whole grain products, the conductors of this study found that products with the “Whole Grain Stamp” had more sugar and calories compared to products without the stamp.

These products did, in fact, have more fiber and less trans fat, but if you follow nutrition at all, you'll know that consuming sugar in bulk is the biggest underlying factor to weight gain.

Next time you're about to purchase a whole grain product, check the label, and make sure that you're not hurting yourself, when you're just trying to help yourself.
