Depends on if I'm craving it. Most days I do better without. I eat plenty of carbs and starches (sweet potatoes, fruit and veggies). But if I do want bread I'll make sure it's a good brand with real ingredients (and gluten free for me). Most times I make my own and freeze it.

GRACE. BEAUTY. LAUGHTER. REST. COMPASSION. GOOD FOOD.
I love to cook and bake. I have compiled hundreds of recipes on Pinterest: Crowd pleasers: Traditional & Lightened versions of timeless favorites, as well as: gluten free, vegan, Paleo & Grain-Free... and a ton of Scones and desserts. pinterest.com/willdance4joy/
Same as OP: Eating a little bread tends to fill me up longer. I always get the whole wheat (or whole grain) variety for fiber and protein.

I eat bread many times per week. I find that complex carbs from wholegrain bread keep me full for longer when I eat them with protein.
You don't have to eat the whole thing.

I eat about a slice or two of bread a day. NO white bread for me though, and I make sure to try to buy bread with seeds and high fiber content.

In moderation I guess, but I don't actually eat it too often. I'll have a sandwich once every week or two or three, so, not very often. It can take me a couple months to get through one loaf of bread if I'm the only one eating it. On weekends I like to toast whole grain english muffins and put peanut butter and jelly on them for breakfast, and occasionally I make french toast or hamburgers/hot dogs with buns, but that's about the extent of my bread intake. It's not that I don't like it or think it's bad for me, I just prefer to eat other things. I like potato bread. I do eat a lot of pasta though.

Ugh I love bread. If I have a loaf of bread in the house, I'm likely to eat 4+ slices a day. I stopped buying loafs of bread and have whole wheat bagel thins with a little bit of natural PB for breakfast. I'm not tempted to have 4 bagel thins in one day like I am with a loaf of bread.

I don't eat a lot of bread. I never really have.
I don't like whole wheat bread and white bread doesn't sit well with my stomach.

I do eat bread wheat or wheat honey 7 grain. When I first started the SparkPeople program the end of August I tried not eating bread didn't want to waste my calories on it, then started feeling weak, dizzy etc. due to sugar levels, so I started eating bread and do not have those dizzy feelings anymore, if I had not got those feelings I probably would have continued to not eat bread as often...

I eat 1-2 slices a day. I always have a sandwich or wrap for lunch. It isn't that I crave the bread, I just need it for my fancy sandwiches. ;)
I make peanut butter/waldorphs, egg and shrimp, tuna, egg and apples, fruity chicken and Coach Nicole's Grown up grilled cheese.
I choose whole grain; quinoa and flaxseed or sunflower. I also get a thin sliced marble wheat/rye.
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.
I bake bread about once/month or every few months... it's just too much trouble and too many calories to eat more often that that. Storebought bread I think is so awful, not worth wasting precious calories on it. I grind my own wheat when I make bread so it burns a few calories between that and the kneading!
I eat bread most days. I like sandwich thins, but that's just me. If I want a piece of toast for a snack or something then I will have it. I also like Subway, and it is my lunch of choice if I am eating out.
There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.

I eat bread every day, but it is really good quality bread and very high in fibre, plus a good source of protein and low sodium and fairly low fat. I sometimes have 2 pieces with cottage cheese and tomato, or with Banana mashed on it for breakfast, but don't find it as filling as Rolled Oats for breakfast. I find it more filling than a lot of other alternatives for lunch, but usually only have 2 slices with salads or whatever on it.

I eat 1-2 slices of bread probably 4 days/week. However, I'm pretty picky about the type...only flax/multigrain/cracked-wheat type stuff or rye bread. Usually, it is bread we make here at home. No white bread at all. Anything with a lower glycemic index number.
Also, I really only put certain spreads on...home-made applesauce, honey, or natural peanut butter.
Some people find that just a bit of bread in their regime will make them crave more carbs...for others, it takes the edge off. I have some in order to not go nuts some day and then have waaaay too much (I love bread alot).
If you bring forth that which is within you, that which is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you, that which you do not bring forth will destroy you.
