What kind of bread

Just wondering what is the best kind of bread to buy at the store, for weight loss. I always though whole wheat was the way to go, but after comparing packages it seems their is more fat and cal. in them. What do yall suggest? Im trying to get my diet back in check and carbs are my worst enemy.

Thanks

do you exercise alot? that would probably do more than picking a certain bread. Running will do more than diet ever could.

wonder bread if you want to go fast.

I bike a lot, but I have about 60 pounds I want/need to lose. Exercise alone does not do it for me. I have started to realize my weight is holding me back from what I want to do physically, so im trying to cut all the shit out of my diet and Im pretty sure carbs kill me more than anything.

you need to drop the carbs...so dont eat breads... 2 slices is usually 30 carbs

I know bread is good stuff but is there are reason you are eating it? Easy lunch?

there is nothing wrong with bread, but it shouldn't be a staple. The bread I eat is 40 calories / slice with 5g of protien. I thinks it's called Wheat & Fiber or something like that.

Mainly at lunch for a chicken or tuna sandwich. Most of the time im in a hurry for lunch. That and I have to have bread, I have tried cutting it out and well I just can't do it. For dinner I stick to chicken breast and salad. So mainly lunch but I will sneak a piece for dinner every once in a while.

I found some stuff today that was the lowest I could find for a wheat bread and it is still like 70 cal, 1 gram of fat, and 7 grams of fiber and 16 grams of carbs.

Man, its always a fight.... my girlfriend is diabetic and is supposed to eat 40 carbs a meal. I have been payin attention to carbs for the last 2 years or so. If you have a microwave, there are lots of tv dinners with under 40 carbs. Its a small meal, but to lose weight, you have to cut calories and carbs. We as Americans overeat...our portion sizes are bigger than what we need and thats why our country is fat.

I would look at alternative lunches and cut down the carbs/calories.

Yeah I eat lean cuisines often also. I just get sick of frozen food pretty fast. Portion size is probably my biggest problem, I eat pretty health, but probably more than I need to. I did buy a scale to help weigh stuff out.

I just read a few things on bread over the internet and both wheat and white bread are full of complex carbs. I thought it's already been proven that eliminating carbs altogether from your diet is an unhealthy way to lose weight? I thought it was simple carbs such as sugar that needs to remain low while taking in complex carbs is ok?

Yeah cutting out all carbs is not good. I have a good friend who's dad is a kidney doc, he says it is better to be way over weight than to do an Adkins like diet. Im just wanting to cut carbs way down. Im not really sure on the complex carb vs. simple. I would like to know though. I eat mostly lean meat but love my pasta and breads, although im gonna stick to eating pastas only before big rides.

I've heard that if you limit your sugar intake, you'll eliminate most of the simple carbs that your body takes in. Just because white bread isn't called "wheat bread" it doesn't mean it's not made from wheat. It's just made from a certain part of the wheat and I believe now nutrients are artificially added to make it just about if not as healthy as wheat bread. I read a little bit on it because this chick told me that white bread turns to sugar, which I didn't believe because the nutritional info on the back of white bread is the same as it is for wheat.

You need to cut calories, not carbs.
