This is probably a dumb question but, how many calories do you think bread crust is?
I don't usually eat the crust so if 2 slices of bread are 170 calories, do you think I'm saving very many calories by not eating the crust?

If you have a food scale you could figure this out exactly.

Nelski beat me to it- weigh the bread before and after the crust, subtract a percentage of calories. Perhaps there is a different amount of calories in the crust (particulary if the pan was "greased", "buttered" or "floured") but I figure it will be close to the same.

If you are that concerned with calories just buy the bread that is only like 50 cals a slice, thats what we buy, and its white bread and doesnt taste any different

WOW! You've all done really well on your goals!! I'm just starting out, and it's only the first week, already feels SUPER hard.

Any tips??

It depends what type of bread you buy. The few times I've tried to cut crust off my wholegrain bread (for french toast) I felt like I lost half of the piece but if I cut it off white bread I can get a lot closer because it's not as dense. I agree with others about weighing.

white without crust is about 27 calories; whole wheat is 31.
