The heartiest low-cal bread I have tried thus far is Arnold's Stoneground Whole Grain bread. 2 slices is 130 calories but it's a bit more filling to me than other low cal bread alternatives. It makes a smaller sandwich but forces me to have healthy sides (a banana, an applesauce, etc.), HTH.

Our local grocery chain sells a variety of low-cal breads (whole wheat, multigrain, oatmeal, etc.) at 35-50 calories per slice. Cheaper than a lot of other alternatives too, if available.

Someone else mentioned sandwich thins - at 100 a piece, they're a pretty good option and a bit heartier than some low-cal breads.

totally understandable concern: high Cal bread can make healthy sandwiches slightly diet unfriendly. try natures own no sugar added bread (50 Cal/slice) or sara lee delightful bread (45 Cal/slice) -- both are whole wheat, high fiber, and, obviously, a little more diet friendly

Have you tried the Deli Flats or Arnold Thins? I love them! I also love the Bagel Thins as well.

I like Weight Watchers whole wheat bread. 45 Calories per slice and good protein and fiber counts too.

I love the Healthy Life brand. They have whole wheat and Italian bread, plus I think a few other kinds. They are 35-40 calories per slice. They also have white and wheat hamburger and hot dog buns. I think they taste great!

I love Nature's Own Light 35 Calorie Honey Wheat Bread. It's only 35 calories a slice and then it's 100 for 3 slices. It's very tasty and great toasted with a little butter and jelly on it!

Pepperidge Farms also has bread that is 45 calories a slice. Or you could try those new Deli Thins that are made by a couple of different companies. They are round and are 100 calories. I tried the one made by Earthgrains. They were ok, but I really like the Pepperidge Farms bread better.

I like aunt millies I think it's healthy request Light 100% whole wheat bread. It's about 45 calories per slice. What about the sandwich thins? I haven't tried them, but I hear they are lower calorie.

I think I's Nickles that has bread that is 35 calories a slcie. They have whole wheat and whole grain, I believe. I don't get it all the time, just when it's on sale. The packing, I think, is white with 35 writen on it pretty big. The only thing I seem to recall because it's been a while since I've bought it is that the first ingredient is water, followed by whole wheat flour.

I felt the same way about bread: too many calories so I cut it out almost entirely and I really don't miss it.

What about Weight Watchers? They have about 45 calories a slice.

I like the Healthy Life breads - particularly the flaxseed one. It's about 45 calories a slice, too!

Orowheat 100% Whole Wheat - Dutch Country style is hearty and 90 cals a slice. It's a good bread if you have a higher calorie limit for losing weight...but if you're maintaining, a heartier, higher cal rbead is more than okay.

I like "open-faced" sandwiches (bottom "bread" only) made with rice cakes and Wasa bread crackers. Healthy tortillas (I like La Tortilla Factory's Sonoma Carb Cutting Tortillas) are great for "rolled" sandwiches too.

1/2/11 12:49 P

Thanks everyone. I actually don't think they sell many of those where I shop :(

I love Natures Own but I can never find it anymore.

I will check out to see if I can find that Sara Lee Delightful one.

Thanks again

I have been using Heiner's Whole Wheat 35 bread, dark orange bag- I think this one has more fiber and protein. 0 Fat, 35 calories a slice.

I use complex carb bread
you can see many of the grains are still visiable in the slices...

This makes the bread heavy- but don't get mislead by heavy.. Yeast that makes this bread can be a perfect detour to eating too much..

All the fiber passes through the stomach and what sugar that gets absorbed is relatively very little, the rest is not digested and just passes through the intestines as fiber some many people seek..

In a slice of this bread there is only about 60 cals.. per 28 gram slice + 8 grams fiber.. The slice should be max 30 grams. I have learned by the concept I used..

Less calories doesn't mean the bread will carry you or it is even healthy.. The quality of our bread is important this is our bodies actual fuel..

I actually just buy Aldi's Loven Fresh Split Top White bread and it's 120 calories per 2 slices. The price is good and the calories value works out well.

Sara Lee has a 100% whole wheat with honey bread that is only 45 calories a slice - I believe its called delightful?

1/1/11 8:48 P

I was wondering if anyone could suggest some low calorie whole wheat breads?

I just got Sara Lee 100% whole wheat honey & it is really good but 120 calories a slice. And two slices for a sandwich = 240 calories just in bread eek!
