Naypooie - That's the problem, most people don't realise that bread dough is sugar.

Skip to 1:50 in this video to see what happens when you eat not just white flour but also healthy whole grains.

Yep, flour. Modern yeast does not require added sugar. Adding sugar can reduce your rising time, or help you proof the yeast, but you don't actually need it to make bread.

I am well aware that starch is just sugar linked, but didn't realize that it would break down to significant sugar in bread dough.

Yeast eats sugar which flour is once it's broken down. It takes longer for the yeast to make the dough rise without sugar, but it will rise.

I've just gotten out of the habit of thinking in terms of sandwiches. I don't eat bread very often anymore. When I do, I will have one single slice of Dave's Killer Bread...not exactly low carb, but it is very satisfying and full of fiber.

I freeze a loaf and pull out one slice at a time.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Trader Joe's makes a sprouted spelt bread that has 7g carbs per serving.
It doesn't taste great and it's a bit dry, but it's the lowest carb bread that I've found.

Does it need to be bread? I use low-carb wraps (La Tortilla is one, but there are others) as a good bread alternative. Also, Pepperidge farms or Arnolds both make low-carb breads. I usually buy the Arnolds.

http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art16205.asp has a review of the Arnold bread, which is only 6g of carbs per slice.
http://caloriecount.about.com/calories-pepperidge-farm-carb-style-7-i102236 is a link to the nutrition facts for the pepperidge farms.

With all due respect to Nutritionist Becky, bread does NOT need sugar. I am an avid bread baker, and your true basic recipe for bread only requires flour, salt, water and yeast. Its just american taste buds that think that bread that needs sugar.

If you want to bake your own bread, I highly recommend the 5 minute bread method.

Oopsie rolls don't use nut flour. I'd love to hear your opinion if you try them.

I have made this before and it's very good. www.elanaspantry.com/gluten-free-bread-20/
I left out the vinegar because I hate it and it turned out fine.

It's not inexpensive to make because it uses a lot of almond flour so I slice it very thin and conserve it when I do make it.

The oopsie roll suggestion is a good one. While there are plenty of breads out there that have no 'added sugar', the yeast is still breaking down starch to make the gases that are needed for rising. Oopsie rolls use whipped egg to give the fluffiness, but to me end up being more like an eggy pancake than a slice of bread. Low carb would imply having lower amounts of flour (or none) and no sugar.

I guess I am lucky in that the best part of a sandwich is the filling, so I just take the filling an eat it without the bread or put it on a salad. For other uses of bread, low-carb breads might be a little disappointing. Bread is a highly processed food and some of us are trying to avoid processed foods. First you have to do a lot of milling and grinding to make the grain edible (it sure isn't in a natural state!). Then you have to mix it with a bunch of other ingredients and let it rise. Then you have to cook it or it remains basically inedible....all these things add up to a highly processed food filled with too much starch. Then if you are buying it, it must be filled with various preservatives because it won't keep very long. Let's face it....that Twinkie that everyone know is nutritional disaster is basically a little loaf of extra-sweet bread. Most store-bought bread isn't much better.

I lost a lot of weight and maintained it for years, then I got all stressed and busy and lost my way. Starting over from a much better place (way less to lose this time!) and making things better.

I would think you would need a "source" of sugar to make a yeast bread. The sugar is what feeds the yeast. Yet the amount is minimal in bread. I estimate 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon per serving.

All the sandwich thins that I've seen contain corn syrup and sugar. Has anyone seen a brand that is free of these things?

I like the 100 calorie sandwich thins. That means that one of the pieces only has 50 calories.

Regarding the rye bread. Be careful!! Most rye bread on the market is not 100% rye. The first ingredient is actually wheat flour. I love the flavor or rye bread, but I don't considered it to be any better than refined wheat flour bread. I am looking at a label right now: Rye flour is the 4th ingredient. Less than 1 gram of fiber in a slice. The general grocery stores in my area do not carry anything near a 100% whole rye flour bread.

A better source of carbs is rye bread, why?, because it has lots of fiber and can help you feel full longer. It digests slowly and the sugars in rye get digested slower than white or wheat bread. In a study wheat prompts a higher insulin response than rye, which means that the cells in the body can store more fat.

The study and research is part of the EU project "Healthgrain," in which researchers study how wholemeal products can be used to prevent diseases including type 2 diabetes and heart and vascular diseases

So maybe try some dark rye toasted.

I haven't tried any low carb bread myself. They look good, as some are sold at a store I frequent, but haven't picked up a loaf to try.

I've been reading on a few low carb web sights concerns over the truthfulness of the low carb claims some companies make. For example, saw this TV report that look into the issue.

Difficult to answer, because each location has different offerings.

I used to have to make my own, as it was unavailable locally.

For lower calorie ones, locally, I use Dempsters Body Wise (I believe it's called) (haven't bought it in a while). It was lower calories, etc., than the equivalent sized Weight Watchers Brand

I don't know where you are but new to the UK market is a bread by "Sukrin" who are, I think, Norwegian. It's a bread mix which uses no flour! It's based on flax seeds and sunflower seeds so it yields a gluten-free, vegan, incredibly high protein, almost carbohydrate-free loaf. It's delicious and easy to make. I hope you can get hold of some!

I can't give you brands (different country) but I suggest that you look at the Nutrition Labels and compare. Go for:

* Highest fibre (from whole-grains)
* Low sugar
* Highest protein
* Low Saturated/Trans Fats
* Low Sodium
