A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association says that women who ate at least 2 servings of whole grains daily cut their cardiovascular disease risk by 51%!
This study also found that cereal fibers seem to be even more effective than veggies are at lowering cholesterol.
Fifty-one percent?!? Wow, that's huge! And 2 servings a day? That's not so hard to do. Replace all your white bread with 100% whole grain bread, all your pasta with whole grain pasta, and even try whole grain pita bread and tortilla shells! They all come in whole grains, and you can probably find them cheap at your local grocery store!
