Switch to whole grains

Guidelines
Whenever possible switch to whole grains from white flower products such as bread and pasta. The white bread and white pastas are one of the main causes for us to maintain that little extra around our mid-section. By switching to whole grains you will also increase your fiber intake which promotes healthy digestion so you can keep that flat tummy as well.
