Big G Whole Grain Weight Management Review and Giveaway!


I strive to bring the best nutrition for my family, and General Mills Big G cereals want to make that easier for all families. Reported in their press information,

Ninety-five percent of Americans do not get enough whole grain, according to the Report of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee. In fact, the average person gets a little more than half a serving of whole grain each day.

Every Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, with more than 20 Big G cereals delivering 16 grams or more. (At least 48 grams of whole grain are recommended daily.) A diet high in whole grain has been found to help with diabetes and weight management, and may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.

General Mills wants to encourage better nutrition and weight management and is offering a prize pack, including a VIP coupon for one Big G cereal and a copy of The Lean Belly Prescription by Dr. Travis Stork, a host of the TV program The Doctors! For example, in his "Laws of Leanness," he writes:
  • If you love to graze: Nosh all day long on your favorite fruits and vegetables to help keep your belly full

  • If you love fatty foods: discover which fats can actually strip away pounds

  • If you love soda: substitute more delicious drinks that can help you lose up to four pounds in four weeks.

You can also preview a few pages of The Lean Belly Prescription: The fast and foolproof diet and weight-loss plan from America's top urgent-care doctor here.
