Once you fall in love with whole grains you are on the ball. They supply your body with range of B vitamins, minerals like Magnesium, Iron and Selenium, antioxidants and plenty of fibre.

But since we are creatures of habit, you may happen to love one specific grain you eat more often than others and wonder how that impacts your weight and health in general.

It turns out that different foods, including whole grains, have a different effect on your blood sugar and on your satiety. Both of which are key players in finding your ideal weight and health.


Blood sugar drops and spikes drive cravings, make you short-tempered and diminish your willpower. And if you happen to eat a meal which satisfies you only for an hour or two, you end up eating round the clock – not an ideal strategy for keeping your body in a top shape.
