  1. Bread is bad?


    Someone was telling today that bread is terrible for you and that wheat isn't good either...Why is bread not good for you? I'm under the assumption she's implying it makes you gain weight and is unhealthy. She also stated it's converted to sugar, but aren't all carbohydrates converted to sugar?

    Basically, why is bread bad and should i just avoid it?

    Is pita bread ok? I generally have chicken pita sandwiches from time to time...But, if i shouldn't eat, I'll avoid it...(I don't need bread)

    I find it odd that bread would be bad for you, when Jesus and the disciples had it for last supper...I'm not really religious, but these people are basically implying God is stupid and shouldn't have had bread...He should have stuck with Ezekiel bread instead...lol


  2. anything whole grain is fine, and yes, all carbs convert to sugar - its the speed of conversion you need to look out for.

    the rules are all whole grains are OK. 7 grain, whole grain, whole wheat, rye, etc. the bad ones have "white flour" in the ingredients.

  5. Enriched flour isn't good for you. Sprouted grains are great and some bread is even made out of sprouted grains (like Ezekiel). You have to remember that in Bible days food was not processed in the way it is now. Bread was home ade and probably much healthier than most you buy in the store. Jesus probably wasn't on a "weight loss/fat loss" diet during his last supper either. That was probably the last thing on his mind.

  6. Could have been spouting about the evils of gluten.

  7. Most breads are trash IMO, even the ones that claim to be "whole-wheat."

    Stick to Ezekiel bread, or another bread where the primary ingredients are sprouted grains.. If you see "Wheat Flour" ANYWHERE listed in the ingredients, move on.

  8. Make sure one of the first ingredients in the bread isn't HFCS.

  9. If anybody lives in the PNW, a great source is Silver Mills bread (a Canadian product). All sprouted grains and most breads with 5g fiber per slice. It's heavy duty stuff and very good for you.

  10. I've been reading in this forum about Ezekiel bread and I've seen it at the nearby Whole Foods Market... Friday, while getting my fish oil, I decided to get a loaf of Ezekiel bread. I toasted two slices Saturday to go with my scrambled eggs and chicken and WOW it is the best tasting bread ever! I should have started eating it a long time ago.

    People also died of plague in the bible days.

  12. Whole grain bread is a semi-processed food product. Many are high in salt and some, like others mentioned, use some sort of sweeteners.

    There are worse foods but everything in moderation. However, I think you are better off with whole food starch sources like potato, yam, rice, quinoa, etc.

  13. wasnt ezekiel bread back in the day baked in ****?

    Something to consider


    Bread isnt bad if it fits your macros. I like to buy the bakery breads that look fairly old school, like the whole wheat crusty varieties. Trader joes has a nice anadama bread if you can buy it on the day its fresh. Its hit or miss sometimes.

    What?! Bread is bad? Well,.. For me, it's not.. Choosing the right bread is key to a healthy diet... And, have you experienced eating bread then came up with bad results?

  15. Bread is like putting glue in your digestive system, but its ok in moderation... here is a quote I use

    "the whiter the bread, the quicker you're dead"

    white bread is bad, anything WHITE is bad because it has to be bleached and stripped of all its nutrients... I wouldn't say don't eat bread, but use in moderation and please dn't eat white bread!

    Actually, it's a good way to keep things moving. Fiber is your friend.

    You're just being dramatic.

    Which you can get from many whole food sources which have no additives, lower calorie density, and more micronutrition. Bread is hardly an essential food.

    I wouldn't tell anyone else that quote......you were when you thought/posted that, weren't you?

    Thanks for the input but nobody claimed it was an essential food.

  21. ...hey, it's simple folks: look at the nutrition facts & ingredients. If it's whole sprouted grain (Ezekiel, Silver Mills, Dave's, some others), has high fiber content per slice (no, 2g is not acceptable) and doesn't contain sugars or hfcs and/or white flour it's okay.

    I occasionally cheat with caraway rye, but usually I go with the Silver Mills Flax or Squirrely (both 5g fiber per slice!) which are also not made with flour (none of their breads are).

    Actually I tell that to a lot of people, because its true. You should do some reasearch before you make comments.

    Where can I read that 'the whiter the bread the quicker I'm dead?' Lol. Don't answer that, I'm just kidding.

    No RD will tell you that white bread is going to kill you or speed up your death.

    Its just a saying that means that bleached flour, or white bread is not good for you.... You don't have to listen to me, nobody has to listen to me.. everybody has their own opinion about damn near everything.. im just tryin to help people be healthy... i put information out there to try and save lives, thats what I do...

  28. I eat two HUGE slices of bread covered in natty p-butter and splenda every morning for breakfast...

    Of course we grind our own wheat and bake our own bread, so I know its the good stuff....

    Otherwise I say go whole wheat or sprouted and NO sugar or HFCS!!!

    Spreading misinformation is not how you should go about trying to save lives. Claiming an RD would agree with what you said is ignorant.
