You would have found gym instructors or nutritionists to suggest oatmeal if you’re to lose fat and build muscles at the same time. This is because of its fiber-rich nature just like other whole grains.
If you keep the oatmeal in your diet, they definitely help in lowering the ‘bad cholesterol’ levels in the body. These LDL cholesterol levels are not good at all for people with Type 2 diabetes because these impose serious threats for heart. That makes these oats an even better diet for diabetics.
But remember that it is steel-cut, classic rolls or quick oats we are talking about here and that too without added sugars and flavours.
10. Whole Wheat Pasta
Although pasta is not expected to be in these kinds of lists but like all other whole grains, whole-wheat pasta also provides essential phytonutrients such as magnesium, folate and vitamin B.
It also has plenty of fiber content in it. But don’t get too excited about it as you should be careful with the quantity of pasta you intake. Although it is a whole grain diet, still only one cup is enough to meet the body’s demands.
One cup has almost 40 grams of carbs and 6 grams of fibers in it. You also need to add some lean protein and a big serving of non-starchy vegetables (broccoli, bell peppers and mushrooms) to your plate to keep it healthy.
