A very good question asked by one of my patients during our weigh loss consultation; why wheat flakes over cornflakes? Well the answer was simple as, Wheat flakes help better in weight loss as compared to cornflakes.
Very simple for a lay man to understand as wheat flakes is a product of whole wheat where the fiber content is taken care of. It is packed with natural wheat bran, thus the amount of fiber we get is high. When compared with cornflakes, they are produced from a starchy based millet corn. Naturally the amount of fiber in cornflakes is not high when compared with wheat flakes.
