A member of Spark People sighed how awful it was not eating bread.
I know there is said some things about bread
A diet can also be with bread - If it is filled with fiber and whole grains.
Actually Magnesium is something modern food often lacks.
Bread with a lot of oat bran has Magnesium in it.
I have made a recipe for bread using oat bran. It has a consistence that is a little wet. So I often roast the slices I use. When I made it as balls for a party all of it was eaten with joy
Actually many people like it.

Are You Ready to Change Your Lifestyle?
Quiz by Liza Barnes, Health Educator.
There are so many things you can do to improve your health, from simple changes like buying whole grain bread to more complex commitments like consistently working out. But the most crucial thing you can do is be ready to make changes. If you haven't built up the will or created a plan B, your best efforts might be in vain. Take this assessment to find out if you're ready to change in your lifestyle.
Ready, Set: You're getting ready to change your lifestyle.
There are five stages of change that people move through when losing bad habits or creating new ones (pre-contemplation, contemplation, preparation, action and maintenance). You’re in the third stage, preparation—getting ready for takeoff. In many ways, this stage is the most important, because you're setting up the course for all the work that lies ahead. This is the time to work out ways around the inevitable bumps, setbacks and plateaus that lie ahead. If it's a struggle for you to eat healthy while you're on the run, get some advice before you wind up in the fast food line. If you don’t know how you'll get to the gym when your kids are home after school, work out a plan before school's out. And don't get discouraged if you've tried to make changes in the past and it didn’t stick. Sometimes it takes a few tries, and you'll learn more about yourself each time.
