[/b]When I first started loosing weight I went on a low carb diet- but I did have the Empower foods Bread mix, is really yummy and only 2 g carbs per serve! Would definately reccomend it! Even though I can eat normal bread now I still love to have it, is full of protein and is reallllly yum!

Now I love wholemeal anything- after a year of not having white bread I tried it months ago and it tasted like nothing!! Ha ha, so definately love the brown bread etc, so much tastier! :D

Man I haven't touched bread for about 3 months!!! Been working for me. I don't have anything against bread, but it's just too many kilojoules for a weight loss diet, for me anyway. I do have one or two kebabs with 1/4 of the meat once or twice a week though. Carries about 1/4 of my daily kj allowance.

I find it really hard not to eat white bread because I don't really like any of the other breads! Does anyone know if Pita bread is okay to eat or are their still alot of carbs?

I'm new to the weight-loss world and just have a question about bread. So I've gathered that white bread is bad for those wanting to lost bread, but between multigrain and wholemeal, which is better?

white bread basically has little nutritional value.....take a piece of white bread and squeeze it your hand and see what happens to it!! Having said that there are now some "fibre enhanced" white breads on the market, but I generally try to avoid it as white bread seems to stick to my insides (never feel like it has gone down properly) and makes me bloat...

Grain breads are higher in fibre (some) than wholemeal and help to fill you up longer.....there has been some debate over the years that wholemeal is better for you as the grains just pass straight through your system, but I only eat the soft grain or the rye bread so I don't find this to be a problem. :D

as a matter of a side issue with wholemeal bread (nothing to do with if it is "good" for you or not). I found that after my gall bladder op, I could not and still can not eat wholemeal bread with out it repeating on me and giving me terrible indegestion......

The grains pass right through because most people don't chew their food enough - you need to crush the outer husk of the grain. BTW You can get bread which is wholemeal & multigrains. If you dont have any white bread for a while you will get used to the change. :)

Up untill a few months ago I only ate thick sliced white bread too, looking for another option I tried Vogel's 'Soy and Linseed' bread and havent looked back since, and it goes nicely with ANYTHING.

Bread has never been a big part of my diet and I can go without it without thinking about it, but making a nice cucumber and smoked salmon sandwhich with Vogels bread once in a while is ESSENTIAL! :D

Just thinking about it, I'm not really eating all that much bread any more. Some weeks I would pretty well have no bread at all, other's I will have it, but even then it's usually the sourdoughs (usually a wholemeal 8 grain or the wholemeal fruit and nut or sprouted rye) and these are REAL breads, not squooshy bread. They'd put shop grain breads to shame. :lol:

What is it about bread? I used to go through 5 slices for breaky and still have room for more. It wouldn't fill me up at all.

I'm going to make my own with whole grain and whole wheat. I just have to pull out mum's bread maker. Yum the smell of freshly baked bread.

Just curious if any one knows whether mountain bread is alright? I LOVE my bread but I am thinking that cutting it out of my diet or atleast cutting down, may be a good place to start. I was thinking about trying mountain bread as an alternative. Thoughts?? :?:
