The right carbs = leaner tummy

According to RealAge, a health website which I am addicted to (the weekly emails rock!), choosing the right type of carbohydrate can cause you to lose belly fat. Said carb is whole grains. We already know that whole grains are good for our hearts and help fight off diseases, but now curbing stomach fat is just another great reason to choose the brown rice or whole wheat pasta!

Here's the kicker: you gotta go all or nothing. You can't be mixing great whole grains with refined and processed white carbohydrates, like bread. You need to be eating ALL whole grains. They recommend getting 3 servings a day. Whole grain cereal, bread, whole wheat pasta, and brown rice are all great options!

Doesn't that look yummy?
