Eat More Fiber and Grains

The staff of life may be exactly that, scientist from the National Cancer Institute say.  There study of 388,122 men and women found that those who ate the most fiber from grains, an average of 9 grams a day for women, were 19% less likely to die over the nine-year research period  than those who at the least.  They were also 28% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease.  Although the high-fiber eaters took in a lot from fruits, veggies, and beans, whole grains were the key, say the researchers, probably because of the foods' anti-inflammatory prowess.  To fill up on whole grains fiber, try these carbs below.

1. Whole wheat pancakes
2. Oatmeal
3. Whole wheat English muffins
4. Bulgur
5. Whole wheat spaghetti
