Why? Ounce for ounce, muscle burns more energy than body fat does. So the higher your proportion of muscle to fat, the more calories you need to maintain your weight. A softly rounded body type has a greater tendency to store body fat then a lean, muscular body.

Switch to brown rice. Eat oatmeal or oat flakes for breakfast. Snack on plain popcorn. Add whole barley to vegetable soups.

To lose, gain, or maintain your weight, it makes little difference what proportion of nutrients supply your calories. It’s your total calories—in and out— that count!
