Whole Grain VS. Whole Wheat Breads|BeLite Weight

When you make the decision to eat whole grain breads, you’re getting all the benefits of the grain, from the bran to the germ to the endosperm. It’s all there, un-ground and in its entirety, just the way nature intended it to be.

When you make the decision to eat whole wheat breads, you’re getting a mashed up, ground down version of wheat grain. It includes the bran, germ and endosperm, but everything is ground together to create a flour. The flour is then turned into bread.

So, which is better for you and your weight loss goals? The truth is, they’re both pretty good for you. Both are nutritious. Both are filling. Both can taste great. And both are definitely a whole lot better for you than white bread, which is pretty much all carbs and very little nutritional value.

In short, you can’t go wrong with either whole grain or wheat. But, if you are serious about reaching your weight loss goals, you’re probably better served making the decision to eat whole grain breads.

See, when you eat whole grain bread, there’s simply more there to fill you up. And when you eat more, you are much more likely to stop eating sooner. And when you stop eating sooner, you ingest fewer calories, which is what reaching your weight loss goals is all about. In addition, bread made with whole grains contains a lot less fat than whole wheat. Whole grain is also chock full of loads and loads of iron. It also has loads and loads of vitamin B–in all of its forms.

And of course there are those who maintain that whole grain breads taste better than whole wheat breads.
