TOPIC: Best type of bread to eat while trying to lose weight

 
January 28, 2013 9:17 PM
I make my own using whole wheat flour, vital wheat gluten flour, yeast, soy milk, olive oil, truvia, and salt. it's pretty good, tastes like regular whole wheat, and it's not grainy. you'll get two loaves for one batch. and it keeps me full for a long time. let me know if you want the recipe. smile

If you are interested in lower carbohydrate bread, check out Julliians Bakery Paleo Bread. It's pricy but worth it.

I like rice paper wraps. Only 70 calories for 3 wraps and I stuff them full of grated veggies and a little hoisen sauce.


What a good idea!

Whole grain has the entire kernel of the grain from the bran to the endosperm to the germ. Whole wheat has the bran and germ removed during the refining process and is left containing only the endosperm. Unfortunately, the majority of vitamins and fiber are contained in the wheat bran and wheat germ that is shed during the refining process.

Whole wheat flour goes through a refining process that removes some of the nutritional values. In fact, whole wheat flour has half of the nutrients stripped away during the refining process. Whole grain flour is not refined and therefor maintains its full nutritional value. Whole grain bread is a good source of B vitamins and fiber and is lower in fat than whole wheat bread.

Whole grain is lower in fat than whole wheat. Whole grain also contains all of the fiber, iron and B vitamins that nature intended because it does not go through a refining process. In fact, the refining process strips away half of the vitamins, calcium, iron and fiber from whole wheat products.

Whole grain and whole wheat look very similar. Most people cannot tell the difference between the two without tasting them. Whole grain has a richer taste than whole wheat does. Whole grain has a more dense texture than whole wheat does. Whole grain maintains all of the nutrients nature intended which makes it a more filling and satisfying choice than whole wheat. It is possible to feel full quicker while eating less when you choose whole grain over whole wheat. Also, whole grain is a better choice for diabetics because it cause less of a "sugar spike" than whole wheat does. Refined grains have been linked not only to weight gain but also and increased risk of insulin resistance. In fact, whole grains have been shown to lower your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes otherwise known as adult onset Diabetes.

The only way to know if you are getting whole grain or whole wheat is to read the label. Look for whole wheat flour as the first ingredient or a statement that it is made with 100% whole grain. Sometimes labels can be deceiving, so make sure that you read the label carefully. The Whole Grain Council makes it even easier for you by putting their whole grain stamp on whole grain products. So read the labels and look for the whole grain stamp to pick the healthiest products.

The art of losing weight is different as everybody is different. Many people can not lose weight eating breads. So for you it might be trail and error. If you can lose weight by eating breads try and eat a healthy bread.

I would say whichever is the most filling and has the least sugar... I personally LOVE Franz San Juan Nine Grain Bread. It may just be a Seattle thing, but it's so good. And it fills you up. Has lots of little nuts and seeds in it.

Organic spelt whole grain - awesome, or else sour dough - both are pretty common in Australia. Are they popular in America? /:)

On another note, I just noticed this is a zombie thread. Hope the OP ate a ton of bread and lost all the weight they needed to. ::Bowing out::

No I am not one of those people. Not at all. This has nothing to do with calories as it does on how some bodies metabolize breads and grains. I am saying in my family of us FAT people we lose weight by cutting out sweets and breads (bad carbs) Grains are good, but for us they bloat our stomachs and intestines. Many people are like that. And then there are others that do very well. Boy you are touchy, need a few more carbs perhaps in your diet.

I also get very bloated. I have stuck to a low carb diet for many years which breads have been omitted. I would like to incorporate the best bread to have in my weight loss plan . Can u suggest?
October 4, 2014 10:10 PM
Dark rye bread is supposedly the best, but really who cares what type of bread as long as it fits into your daily calorie goal, and if you're really worried about it, instead if two slices go to one slice.
