Exercise some portion control
By Meeghan, 10 May, 2009
Cereals, breads, rice, pasta and noodles (particularly wholegrain varieties) provide the body with essential carbohydrates and fibre as well as B vitamins, thiamin, riboflavin and folate. This food group provides fuel for our body but we often over consume and end up with excess fat!
For men and women we should have 3-7 serves of bread and cereal per day; how many serves depends on how physically active you are and your current body weight. 1 serve is equivalent to: 2 slices bread, 1 cup cooked rice, pasta, noodles or porridge and ½ cup muesli. See a dietitian to create a healthy eating plan just for you!
