- Weight loss ideas – Bread content

I’m looking for ideas of other foods that I can have to replace bread. Little did I know that rice cakes are supposed to be just as bad as a couple of slice of bread…….who knew? (not me it would seem)
So in the spirit of a Calorie In/Calorie Out dies, what other suggestions have folks tried?Posted 1 year agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
How about changing the bread? I had to lose some pounds so switched from white to granary bread. Just as many carbs but the wholewheat flour and seeds mean it’s harder to digest so keeps you feeling full longer. Probably the same idea as yak’s rye bread. Also, I make my own bread (well the machine makes it, I just throw the ingredients in) so I’m pretty sure I know what I’m eating.
Another thing I did was start reading the nutri content labels on food which led to stopping pretty much all breakfast cereals. Now I make up a mix of porridge oats, some other grain (spelt flakes just now) and whey protein in semi skimmed milk with some berries and/or cherries chucked in and left in the fridge overnight. Tasty and fillingPosted 1 year agoDT78Member
I swapped out bread a few years back (amongst other stuff).
Breakfast was 3 egg omlettle, lunch was often salad/beans, snacks were oatcakes.
I dropped 6kg without really trying, doing the same level of exercise and not feeling hungry etc..
Sadly I’ve found out oats don’t really agree with me, and now with 2 kids to sort in the morning I don’t have time for anything than a couple of slices of toast. I’ve put those 6kg back on 🙁Posted 1 year agooikeithSubscriber

This is what I did, dropped white for Granary, but also looked at the other meals and ensured I was eating correct portion sizes, did it via MyFitnessPal, was shocked at how much larger my evening meal portions were than the recommend portion size!Posted 1 year agoblader1611Member
Not sure who does PR for bread but they need to up there game. So many people out there who seem to think that bread is the answer to there weight gain. I heard a group of secretaries saying they had given up bacon sarnies for breakfast at weekends due to piling on the pounds, they now just have a fry up with no toast! I kid you not.Posted 1 year ago
