Go for Cracked Wheat (Dalia) to reduce that bulge

How much money would you spend or how many days would you go on an empty stomach to get that bulge off your tummy?

If both these tried, tested and failed efforts leave you depressed at the end of the week or month, why not try a hassle-free, cheap option?

Kick rice and go for a bowl of Cracked Wheat or Broken Wheat, which is known in English as Bulghur and in Hindi as Dalia?

Cracked Wheat, known as Lapsi in Marathi and Nurukk Gothamb in Malayalam, is nutritious and fibre-rich when cooked with mixed vegetables and is a great option for people who are trying to cut down on rice. It is low in fat and aids in weight management by preventing obesity.

Cracked Wheat is prepared from different varieties of wheat grown in India and is parboiled before packing. Since the grain is rich in fibre, protein and Vitamin B, it helps in lowering body mass easily without leaving a person hungry for a very long time. The versatile grain works well as a savoury or even sweet dish.

According to health experts, a bowlful of Cracked Wheat is an ideal breakfast option that one can include in daily diet for effective results. You can simply cook it with nutrient-rich green veggies like carrots, peas, beans and capsicum to enhance its flavour.

High fibre content

The high fibre content of this versatile grain helps you remain full in your tummy for a long time and that is how it assists in weight loss. Since it takes a long time to digest, it prevents you from bingeing on unhealthy foods.

Rich in protein

The rich protein content in this grain further suppresses hunger and activates weight regulating hormones. Research shows that high protein intake increases your levels of satiety and at the same time reduces hunger hormones (gherlin).

Low GI

Also, the very low Glycemic Index (GI) of Cracked Wheat or Dalia is the reason why doctors recommend it in the daily diet of people suffering from diabetes. Since it has low GI, it does not get absorbed quickly by the body and thus enables the slow release of sugar which further aids weight loss.

So, why wait? Go for a bowl of Cracked Wheat boiled with veggies of your choice, and feel the difference!
