Bread and the Bodybuilder
i have been reading muscle and fitness and flex magazines for a couple of years now as well as various bodybuilding books but onew thing i have noticed is the lack of bread in a bodybuilders diet? in the magazines they always have suggestions for mass building snacks and meals etc and bread is never included. also looking at Pro Bodybuilders diets they never include bread. why is this? is bread not a great form of carbohydrate?
i dont understand this and i know a bodybuilder who lives near me who has won the Mr Britain twice now and he sees no reason why not to eat it. ( however he doesnt go on to tell me how much he eats of it). In the bread i eat ( a wholemeal bread) there is 7g of protein and 17g of carbs per slice, so surely add a bit of chicken and extra light mayo and youve got a great snack? am i right or do you guyts know something about bread that i dont?

bread can have a place in your diet. the best route IMO is the organic sprouted grain breads such as ezeikal. no flour is used and it is not processed whatsoever. this will allow all the grains in the bread to deliver their full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. i consider this to one of the superior carbohydrates available.

The processed flour freaks everybody out. You have to also watch for HFCS in some breads. I usually go with Sara Lee 100% whole wheat as it doesn't contain any HFCS. If I'm cutting hard tho I usually stay away or just have a slice every now and then.Originally Posted by bodybuildinguk

I eat 2 slices of bread a day usually with lunch, I highly recommend you try this line of bread products. They are super effective and very good for you. Food For LifeOriginally Posted by bodybuildinguk

Not all the Sara Lee brands have it. I think the 100% whole grain doesn't have it. I don't have any right now or I'd look for ya.Originally Posted by dlew308

The sprouted bread is pretty good for chicken and turkey sandwiches but my favorite (this is great if you're lazy like me LOL) is 1 cup of oats, 2 cups of water, half a teaspoon of crystal light lemonade and 2-3 drops of liquid sucralose blended

Don't drink water during a meal... Frozen chicken high in sodium... Most bread has HFCS in it....MAN, I really need to stay out (keep checking) this section out!
In the last 5 minutes I've learned that a bunch of the stuff I do that I thought was healthy isn't really all that healthy. I'm really starting to get pissed at all the junk that is being put in virtually everything these days. Rant over...

That is why this board is great, allot of good info to learn from. Just take the info and gain from it

Lmao at some of the responses in this thread.
Just buy some 100% whole wheat or Oatbran bread and eat it. It isn't unhealthy. I can't believe how much hair splitting is going on over bread.

Its not that their is discussion on it. what was generally being discussed was the fact of bread and bodybuilding. I think the bottom line is any serious bodybuilder will not eat to much bread. No room in the diett for it.
Yes I am sure on occasion we all eat it do to the convience of it. However eating rice and potatoes are a better source of carbs. You will never see a competitor eat bread pre contest. But if you want to have a sandwhich here and there go ahead. It wont harm you
