Because whole grains haven’t been stripped of their nutritious exteriors, they provide more vitamins, minerals, and fiber than their refined counterparts. They’re also more filling and lead to better blood sugar and insulin regulation. If you need any further convincing, a higher intake of whole grains is also tied to better weight management, reduced belly fat, and a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. Case closed, right?
