I love bread too. I find that when I stick to whole grain varieties and avoid white flour, I don't want as much & am getting more good carbs & fiber. When I've had too much, I go for "protein style" sandwiches (that's L.A. speak for "wrapped in lettuce instead of bread").

Lettuce leaves make great wraps.

Crispbread crackers are much lower calorie

Arnolds Bread Sandwich Thins are a great alternative to normal bread slices. The arnolds bread only as 100 calories for the entire thing, not 70 or however many calories per slice. My husband and I switched to them about six months ago and have used it ever since.

I love bread too, and also try to limit myself to 2 servings a day, either whole wheat bread or whole wheat English muffin. I've also stocked up on the "skinny" whole grain hamburg buns and whole grain wraps, just for a change. As far as other whole grains, we like whole wheat couscous and brown rice.

I love bread too and refuse to give it up. I stick to portion sizes, 1/2 bagel or 1 slice of whole grain bread. Only 2 servings a day for me (usually 1 with breakfast and 1 with lunch), so far I'm down 5 lbs in two weeks (I'm just getting started again)

I guess that depends on what you are eating the bread with. Intead of eating a pita with hummus use carrots instead. For a sandwich use lettuce and make a wrap. Instead of that dinner roll have an extra helping of veggies.

I've been trying to lose 20 pounds, ive been cutting back on what i eat, and exercising whenever i can. However, the one food i cannot seem to kick is bread. I absolutely love bread, whether in the form of just a slice of bread or in bagels or any variety. What can i east instead of bread? i feel like the amount of bread i consume is prohibiting me from reaching my goal ! (:
