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.

We use Nature's Own for 35 calories a slice with 3x fiber.
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

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

Does anyone know a brand of good tasting gluten free bread?
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.
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..
