I try not to eat bread at all or if I do its empower bread. Its really just not good for you. If you're going to have bread you need to pick one with lots of grains...like a nine grain bread.

I love bread. I can live without bread but I wouldn't be happy. Lately I've been experimenting with different kinds of home made pan-baked flat breads. (cooking bread in a pan without oil). I'm going to attempt steamed bread and mantou during the uni holidays. I'm also looking for dieting alternatives.

I went to an African restaurant and tried their Injera which is a bread made of Teff, a slightly sourish grain with no gluten. It was delicious! The top bit was all spongy and had holes in it for soaking up sauce and the base is all smooth so you can hold onto it. The African use it as a table cloth and eat it afterwards. Problem is, I can't find Teff anywhere.

I reckon that if I can find chickpea flour, I can make a flat, yeastless, chickpea bread. Not as packed with carbohydrates and better for you but still as delicious...

chickpea flour is also known as Besan Chana or Gram flour :wink: . You'd probably find it fairly easily at a health/whole food shop. My mumma sells it in hers.

when i was in africa the bread was beautiful, they put a bit of sugar into their loaves of bread, however we didnt use our bread as a tablecloth whilst over there we used it as a door stopper and a sponge to wipe up spills when it went stale heheh

if I don't eat carbs I get shaky and can't exercise very effectively. I felt much much weaker. Having said that, I've been avoiding gluten and my allergies have gone!

mm soy and linseed is delicious.

I like pumpkin seed bread as well. It's mostly pumpkin seed and hardly any bread. Very hard to cut.

I recently spent 30 minutes in a local supermarket checking labels, the "Bakers Oven Soy and Linseed" had the most protein (5g) and least carbs per slice (20.5g) and yes it was a normal slice size. :D

I must have a slice or 2 a day. It helps me bulk up meals a bit. In saying that I cant eat white breads or ices or pastas. I bloat and feel lethargic.

If I eat grains, especially bread, before midday I'm hungry for grains for the rest of the day and usually eat twice as much as normal. I've learned to stay away from it. That's really, really hard to do. Bread is such an instant food!

Someone once told me that it's the fillings in the sandwiches that stack on the weight, but I'm convinced it's the grains. They make me hungry, not satisfied. I eat that stuff 'til I'm stuffed! And feel really, really awful afterwards.

One thing I have noticed over the years of eating bread - especially things made from refined flour - I tend to get down and depressed, often really depressed, straight away. Talk about mood changes! I used to blame myself and think something was psychologically wrong, but a few times when it happened after I was okay and happy and not at all emotional or stressed, I began to suspect my diet. Now I don't go near scones - they do it every time. And I LOVE scones!

People who don't get this reaction to bread or grains generally tend to think I'm nutty. :D

cheers

Hi! I try not to buy bread, because when I start on the toast, I just cannot stop!!!

I read in a book that certain foods generate further cravings and that includes bread and pasta due to the sugar content and the subsequent rise and fall in blood sugar. They also release the cehmicals that make you happy, or something, so your brain tells you to eat more... something like that.

Whatever the science behind it is - I have certainly found that staying away from rice and pasta is a good thing. Like cereal and toast, I don't seem to know when to stop. I could just keep going and going! Where as I would usually have a stir-fry with veg and rice, now I just have the meat and rice (and sauce of course). I don't even miss the carbs and I don't feel like I've overeaten afterwards. Definately something to think about.
Slow & Steady Wins the Race!

I'm imformed, committed & consistant. I'm loving my body & working towards a sustainable body, the healthy way.

Persistance will set you free.

Do you mean just meat & veg? Rice is a carb.

I went through a stage where i tried to cut out as much carbs as i could and i found myslef craving bread. Didn't care what it was like i just had to eat it. So i really have to have some bread every day or i crave it... and sometimes go a bit overboard.
