Food Facts

Almonds appear to help slow graying hair. According to the September ’11 Prevention, high levels of the enzyme catalase can prevent hydrogen peroxide buildup in hair follicles, which is what turns hair gray.

Lattes could be adding lots to your calorie load and ab-blurring bellyfat. One 20-ounce Starbucks latte has about 300 calories, according to the July/August ’11 Health. Better to go with black coffee, a splash of half-and-half and sweetener—about 25 calories.

Wild rice may be a better choice than brown rice. According to the November ’10 Better Nutrition, wild rice has “25 fewer calories and five fewer grams of carbs than brown rice per half-cup serving…. Wild rice is a relative caloric and carbohydrate bargain.”

Saturated fat is not found in artery-clogging plaque. That’s what a landmark study published in 1994 in The Lancet found. Plaque contains more than 10 different compounds, according to the May/June ’10 Well-Being Journal, none of which consist of saturated fat.

Wheat may be the biggest culprit in our obesity epidemic. So says William Davis, M.D., author of the new book Wheat Belly—Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and Find Your Path Back to Health. Davis, a renowned cardiologist, makes the case that wheat is the world’s most destructive and dangerous dietary ingredient.
