Whole Grain Diet Miracle

by Lisa Hark, PhD, RD and Darwin Deen, MD

"For the first time in history, we can prescribe a weight-loss diet that has scientifically proven health benefits. Eating more whole grains every day, will help you control your weight, and reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and colon cancer. It really is the healthiest diet ever!" says Dr. Hark.

Recent studies conclude that whole grains can boost weight loss, lower blood pressure, reduce risk of diabetes and cancer, and increase overall heart health. With new medical research touting the benefits of whole grains coming out every day, why are so many Americans still in the dark?

As public consciousness about the benefits of whole grains grows, people are seeking answers to their most basic questions about whole grains: What are they? Where are they found? What will they do to my body? How much do I need to eat to get the health benefits? Are whole grains good carbs? Aren't carbs bad?

Lisa Hark, PhD, RD and Darwin Deen, MD answer all of these questions in THE WHOLE GRAIN DIET MIRACLE a revolutionary new book that fills the information void with scientific facts, and easy-to-understand overviews of the 16 miracle grains (Amaranth, Barley, Buckwheat, Corn, Farro, Kamut Millet, Oats, Rice, Rye, Quinoa, Sorghum, Spelt, Teff, Triticale, and Wheat). The book includes a 2-week jumpstart menu, 4-week whole grain diet, and shows you how to make 50 delicious recipes. With their help, readers will find it easy to fit in the three servings of whole grains recommended by the 2005 U.S. Dietary Guidelines. Over 600 new whole grain products were introduced by food companies in 2005 with hundreds more coming this year- a sure sign that the whole grain revolution here to stay!
