CEREALS GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Indians living in metros and pacing with the rat race, by and large, rely on cold cereals for breakfast. Our busy mornings keep us away from homemade food.
So, what did you have for breakfast, today?
Many of us eat breakfast cereals made from processed grains like cornflakes, muesli etc.
After all, healthy breakfast is all we need for a proactive day. But before considering something healthy, you have the right to know if they are actually good for you?
Most of the corn flakes diet is commercialized as healthy and wholesome! Don’t be taken by the attractive packaging printed with false promises on “low-fat”, “fibrous”, “best whole grain cereal” etc.
When you turn it around and look at the ingredients, you will know it’s just about refined grains and sugar. ❌Only a little whole grain with refined grain and added sugar does not make it any better.
Sadly, most of us blindly follow the advertisements without a second thought.
According to studies, these false health claims are the best marketing strategies because people actually look forward to healthy eating. Don’t we?? How to choose “less unhealthy” cereals
