That was a question I got from a random person through a facebook post I made. I guess the thought is that if I have lost that much weight I must have drastically changed what I eat.
I have never been a big bread eater, but I still eat it. I'll have a slice of white bread (gasp! White?) for a sandwich or a roll with my soup. It does creep into my diet, but it's not a big part. It wouldn't hurt to have a sandwich for lunch every day.
I have not been able to change everything over to the healthy version, I still love white bread, even though I know it's not the best for me.
Obviously I have changed some things I've been eating. I do not eat out of the bag late at night. I do not bring home candy every week. I rarely bring home cookies.
I do eat plenty of fruits and veggies, trying to incorporate them into each meal. I still eat meat, I happen to have known my cow before it became my dinner. I still have chocolate frequently, but it more often comes in a granola bar than a candy bar. I have Greek yogurt for breakfast every morning.
I sometimes have white rice (usually jasmine), sometimes it's brown, sometimes it's wild. It really depends on what we're having with it. My noodles are rarely just white, I usually get the tri-colored ones, but sometimes they're whole grain.
I allow myself treats, ice cream and candy do enter occasionally, but not every day. Yes, I eat out, but that's only about once a week, so one out of 21 meals is not bad.
So yes, I still eat bread, like everything else, I just eat everything in the correct proportions.
