I was told that sourdough is much better for you in terms of if your having carbs-does anyone know if this is true? There are multigrain sourdough loafs from wollies which tasta AMAZING, but i was wondering if they were better or not than regular bread?

Sourdough is better than some of the more fancier breads but not much better than regular white, wholemeal or whole grain breads. For example, rye sourdough (per slice) is 68cal compered with No Name white 72cal, whole grain 71cal and wholemeal 69cal. Some makes of bread can be better like Buttercup Country Split 66cal, Fielders Daybake 64cal or Fielders Wholemeal 63cal. Overall not much difference really.

The thing with bread isn't so much what type but rather how much. When I was losing weight I cut right back on my bread. A few times a week I would have a slice when I had bacon (lean) and eggs for breakfast. For lunch I would have one slice with something on it. I cut bread out entirely for dinner. I pretty well keep to this routine even today.

It's not easy to make long term diet changes.I avoid bread and potatoes completely from my diet.. For my carb intake ,I eat whole grain products like oats, brown rice rather than refined foods like white rice or non-whole-grain pasta. Grains for me are a side-dish or add-on.

I try to steer clear of bread limiting it to 2/3 times a week.. Had Naan bread last night but I was being a bit naughty, have toasted Turkish bread sandwiches for lunch regularly and have Rye from time to time..
