How much bread is too much for one day? I am talking about wholemeal.
I tend to have 4 slices per day over one tin of tuna, and sometimes have 2 slices in the morning for breakfast to total 6 slices per day.

If bread starts to constitute most of your carbs, then I would worry a little. Saying that it's probably one of the worst sources of carbs imo.

Cutting?
Bulking?
What's your exercise plan look like?
What are your other carb sources?
What are the ingredients on the bread you eat?


You need to post more info for accurate responses.

sounds to me like one of the articles I read off the main page..

Don't eat fruit, but you can eat sweet potatoes for carbs.

uhh.. what?

All the carbohydrates in your diet could come from bread, it's fine. Unless you are getting plenty of fiber in the rest of your diet, I'd make most of the bread whole grain.

Bread=Devil
Sweet potato=God

Total, anadulterated bull****. However, it remains the mantra of most people on this board.

In most brands of whole wheat bread, there is a lot of HFCS that makes up the dough.

People don't like it for that reason. I think 4 slices a day is fine. Any more than that and you should consider other carb sources.

He's probably commenting on the ridiculous fear of HFCS.

First of all, there isn't very much at all in bread.

Second, HFCS is not appreciably nutritionally different than sucrose or honey.

Third, most of the HFCS is likely used as food by the yeast, so after the bread has risen and cooked, there isn't even much left at all!



Get over it.

I'm not saying "OH GOD NO! NOT BREAD!"

I'm just helping him out by supplying some knowledge. I eat bread too! I'm just saying, that 8-12 slices of bread a day seems excessive in my opinion.

That's fine if you feel that way; but warning people about the insignificant HFCS content isn't really relevant.

i think the point hes trying to get across is that bread is voided of many minerals and vitamins, and that variety shuold be key when considering a diet, and stiving for different sources for overall nutrients.

Bread isnt bad, carbs are carbs, i find it not very satisfying, but if its all i have ill opt for it.I still like to not eat about more then 4-5 slices a day.

Bread is stripped of nutritional value? White bread, yes...

not too much in whole wheat either, depending on the brand and kind you get.

Its still optimal to get a variety to get more nutrition into your diet if possible. But being a broke college student i found myself eating 6-8 cups of a rice a day. So i cant speak too much :(

In my opinion...

Ezekiel Bread > Oats

to each his own, id perfer oats just for price, satisfaction, and no sodium.. also getting 3g of fat and 5g of protein in a half cup compared to bread which can rack up to 3$ a loaf where i can buy 9lbs of oats for about 7 dollars :)

yeah.. I got some damn good whole grain bread yesterday.

But, you shouldn't use one food type as your sole source of some macronutrient, keeping a nice variety in yoru diet will ensure that you're getting all of your essential micronutrients. Different meats, different veggies (ones that are all colors), different fruits, etc...

I think I might need to go buy some oats in bulk.. specially with gas being so expensive

haha, I bought a 20lb bag of brown rice the other week for like 17 bucks, that is going to last me quite some time.
