I don't eat bread at every meal but I do include carbs of some sort. I try to make sure the bread I do eat is whole wheat and mix in lots of other grains (quinoa, rice, etc)

I don't eat a ton of bread, but I could never give it up completely! Mostly eat it in sandwich form.

I eat bread in moderation. It fills me up and keeps me fuller longer.

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.

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 a minimum of 2 slices whole wheat or multigrain bread every day.

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.

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.

no bread for me! I was diagnosed with celiac along with a general grain intolerance about 8 years ago.

sometimes I still miss it though!

I try not to eat too much bread but I do eat it every day. I live in Germany and the bread here is just incredible (unfortunately for my waistline).

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!

The wheat bread we have today in America contains a Super Starch known as amylopectin A , which is a dwarf wheat that is super fattening and also a super Gluten that is super-inflammatory.

I learned that being fat is being inflammed.

I only eat Rye Bread which digests slowly and helps keep me full...and usually only 2 -4 slices per week. Even pimpernickle is better and absolutely no white for me

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.

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).
