I have completely cut bread from my diet. After I had my surgery, bread made me physical sick and I have got to the point I don't miss it anymore. If I want a sandwich I use a wrap and I find it satisfies my need just fine.
I really like the Sara Lee whole wheat white bread. It's the only sandwich bread my bf will eat. I love all breads...especially artisan loaves. A good crusty sourdough, roasted garlic bread, Italian loaf... oh I could go on and on. Since my personal trainer has kind of banned good bread from my diet...not completely, but significantly reduced, I haven't even bought any tasty bread...but when I do, I usually keep it in the freezer and take out what I need as I need it and usually I toast it.
I think whole wheat breads tend to be a little higher in calories, ADLINS, although they have so much more nutritional value that it's worth it. It's a bit easier to find a white bread that has 50 cal or less per slice, but then you may be losing out on the nutrition.
I also like the European crusty breads (french, ciabatta, that sort of thing), but I also like hearty whole wheat breads. Truth is, I rarely buy bread - with just one of me in the house, it goes bad before I can finish a loaf. I tend to buy whole wheat tortillas and make wraps. But I do keep a little bread in the freezer; right now I have about half an Ezekiel loaf and a couple of bakery whole wheat rolls in there.

I like pretty much any bread that can have the word "bread" in the name. lol Not too practical. I look forward to reading that article. My favorites are the very dense, tough crusted or hard crusted European breads. It doesn't take long to get 100 calories. Marsh

I read this article on choosing the right bread today on SP and found the information useful. I've become incredibly picky about bread recently and have all but given it up. I have tried the Nature's Own brand, but was disappointed that no 100% Whole White Wheat made their list (unless I overlooked it) but did like that they included information on it and what to look for.
