I lost 50 lbs eating bread the entire way – and you can too.
Yes, bread is higher in calorie density than cooked whole grains due to the water content differential. And due to the fact that the fiber in bread is disrupted relative to your pot of brown rice or barley. Your grain consumption should weigh more in the balance of the cooked whole grains than breads, particularly if you are intent on shedding a little excess fluff.
Yet great grainy bread can have it’s place and I proved it all the way through dropping about 5 sizes!
Women find it hard to believe that I ever had a weight problem. At least that’s what they tell me.
They also don’t believe me when I say I ate bread all the way through my 50 lb weight loss journey, and still eat bread – regularly - to this day.
You might ask, isn’t it too high in carbs? In calories? Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to give up bread in the quest to be trim.
At the same time, it’s important to understand that (and I’m sure you know this already) all breads are not created equal. And even among the high quality breads, there are some tricks I use that I’d like to share with you to help pave your path to a trim body with slices of yummy bread, too. Click on the short (under 3 minutes) video I made for you to show you just what I mean.
What if you are gluten intolerant?
Granted, the breads in my video are not gluten-free yet the same tips and tricks can apply. I’ve done the exact same slicing method with gluten-free millet bread – and the original slices were actually pretty thin to begin with! A quick toast and my method worked like a charm.
