I'm a bread eater. Can't get enough will never get enough.

Every morning, i have 12 Slices of 100% Whole Wheat Bread with a Protein Source.

However, something that has started to worry me is the sugar content in the bread.

most of you will say "1 gram" Per slice! OH NO", but i go through 20 slices+ a day.

So, should i worry about 20 grams of processed sugar from bread? And the amount of High Fructose Corn Syrup i'll get from it? Or does it not matter at all?

Thanks for your time, i know "2 slices" is no big dea, but im a "big" eater, and it fits into my macros, (except for the sugar/HFCS)

you'll be getting around 50 grams of HFCS with 13 slices of bread. :

Im not sure how neglible that is though.

What the?? 12 slices? How is that possible? Wouldn't it be like a sponge in your gut? Do you dip each slice in a glass of water first?

probably eats it "toasty", bread never seems to get me full either.

However im curious about this as well, iv always wondered about the HFCS effects for "excessive bread eaters" like him or me.

20 grams of sugar in BREAD. That's not bread, that's CAKE. Oh wait, that's 20 slices worth lol.

Anyway, because you're consuming that bread over the entire day, the sugar won't matter so much (It won't spike your insulin). However, you did say that you eat 12 slices for breakfast.

Why don't you buy bread that has no added sugar in it?

it was the best available at the store. :/

The label actually says "Less than 1 gram" But i see it as the same.

Pepperidge Farm Carb Style 100% Whole Wheat Bread.

High Fructose Corn Syrup is also listed after Salt? (if that matters)

if it fits into ur macros then go for it.. if i were you try getting some oats, sweet poatotes, brown rice into ur diet for variety

the more variety the more nutritents/vitamins/minerals you can get from different foods.. its more beneficial for the body

rice you can buy in bulk and simple as hell to prepare

try some oats! great carb source

So is that to assume the HFCS will not effect me/be so trivial it wont make a difference?
