    Default What is the best bread?

    Which is best? (especially for weight loss)

    I looked at all the nutritional information but I'm confused about what I should be looking at.

    Low gi high fibre white bread, country grain or wholemeal country grain?

    It depends what you're after...
    For general health, the best would be the one with the least processed ingredients. Generally that would mean go for wholegrain breads which are based on wholemeal flour.
    Some people would go for whatever has the least energy etc... but I'm of the opinion that if you focus on eating good food (the less processed the better) and appropriate servings of it, then you'll lose excess weight too.

    When it comes to weight loss no bread is good IMO but I guess it depends on how active you are.

    If you are running or doing high intensity workouts then a lil bread is necessary (or just carbs in general) but if you are not working out then I would suggest to stay clear altogether

    Thanks, yes. Wanting what is best for general health but also wanting to loose weight.

    I was looking at Bakers Delight website to try and compare. So, wholemeal country grain would be better because its wholegrains and the least processed even though when looking at all the numbers it doesn't look like it is?

    This is the nutritional info:

    High Fibre Low Gi / country grain /wholemeal country grain
    Energy 726kj / 870kj / 798kj
    protein 6.6g / 6.9g / 8.6
    total fat 0.9g / 2.4g / 2.6
    saturated 0.2g / 0 / 0.5g
    carbs 30.5g / 38.1g / 29.6g
    sugars 0.8g / 1g / 1g
    fibre 6.5g / 2.9g / 5g
    sodium 428mg / 435g / 399g

    There really isn't a type of bread that has less calories/ less fat than others.

    Nutritionally though you're better off going whole meal- will keep you fuller for longer than that white bread will.

    Def avoid any 'dessert' breads (ones with icing, fruit bread, or with any dirt of sugar on them- and those cheesy scrolls etc- stick to ordinary bread.

    Don't stop eating bread, as your body needs carbs- they're your go power basically! Lots of low-,carb diets may let you lose weight quickly, but it's difficult to keep it off once you start eating carbs again. Just try to limit the amount of carbs you do eat.

    Darker the better for nutritional purposes, but it's still carbs.
    I love country life organic rye. Check out your health food shop as well for some great breads.

    I would stick to a true sourdough made from a whole grain. Seeds, grains are all bonus but sourdough has least yeast, which means least sugar and easiest digestio/less fermentation in gut.
