I use Dave's Killer Bread. I feel full after eating just one slice.

Not only do I make my own bread, I grind my own wheat because of the genetic modifications of wheat AND the milling process by regional and national grain and bread providers. White flour.... look it up on the internet how it is created. Pretty scary the chemicals they use.

Home ground and homemade wheat bread tastes better, is more filling, and doesn’t create cravings, and the house smells great when it’s baking.

This alone has eliminated nighttime cravings of all foods for me and has been instrumental in my recent success.

I am a bread over too and I bake a lot of my own. If I buy bread, I buy whole grains and stay away from the white over processed bread. I cannot do a diet and cut out bread.

I can do it with your help!

It's the portions that makes all the difference. I was eating tuna salad on arugula for lunch and found I was starving an hour later. I switched to one half of a tuna sandwich and was full all afternoon, no weight gain. I watch carbs and found that one slice of full size Sara Lee bread has only 13 carbs.

Completely agree with those who still eat bread and are fine. Mediterranean Diet and "Blue Zones" areas (where people live the longest) have bread in many of the areas. Rice in others.

I think the key is:
A) these people also eat a TON of vegetables and little or no meat.
B) we humans vary widely! It's up to each of us to experiment and determine which foods are okay, which aren't, which are "trigger foods" we just can't stop once we start.

Short version: Bread can be healthful for many. No one answer is right for all.

FORDRACER,

I didn't eliminate bread or potatoes from my "diet" and I still lost weight. I just learned to eat smaller portions of good quality food. When I was in Greece for vacation, I ate bread every day and did not have cravings for sugary treats.

And I will tell you why, the bread baked in Greece is different than in the US. it's baked without sugar. I avoid highly processed bread you get in the grocery store. Instead, I do prefer to buy my bread from local bakeries because I know it doesn't have the extra sugar or additives.

I personally do not believe that bread, potatoes or rice are the enemy. My personal opinion is that people are eating too much crap i.e. chips, cookies, fries, etc. That's the food that people should be minimizing. a healthy diet can include bread for most people. If a person is diabetic, then yes, they may have to monitor their intake of bread, potatoes or rice. Some people are sensitive, some are not.

I make a sort of "bread" from this:
- 40 grams vanilla protein powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder

Mix those dry ingredients, then add:
- 20 grams oil
- 20 grams cream or milk
- 1 egg

Actually twice that makes a loaf of "bread"

I pour it into a foil lined, and then also oil sprayed bread pan. 350 F for about 15 minutes.

About 1/2 gram of carbs per slice.

If you want bread sticks you could up the protein powder so it is less liquid and more dough like, then roll into finger shapes, and bake. It may end up less soft than regular bread sticks, but heck ... its 90% of the way there.

Actually...if you keep eating even small portions of these foods you will always have cravings and end up ovetdoing it, eventually...just take a count of all the yo yo dieters on this site. By completely eliminating the " bad" food..over time, about 2 weeks...the cravings actually STOP..and this is when long term weight loss happens without regain. Please don't fool yourself

This isn't only about losing weight, Fordracer. It's about being healthy. And if you are going to forbid yourself certain foods, just to "lose weight", then that is not being healthy at all.

My fiance makes his own bread, he says he feels healthier and he knows exactly what is in it. He also uses hardly any salt, salt causes water retention. Whole wheat flour fills you up quicker and also has more flavor.
Good luck!

Where do you buy your bagels from ? are you going to a reputable bakery or your local grocery store ?

If you are going to eat a bagel, it should be a real New York style bagel and the bagels you see at Dunkin Donuts, grocery store bakeries, etc. I buy most of my bread from a local bakery. Buying high quality baked good from a high quality bakery ensures you're getting nutrient dense bread.

The fact is, the bagels you get from the grocery store or coffee shops are not bagels. They are baked with sugar to aid in the toasting process. Find a place that makes a real bagel. I believe you'll notice a difference in the taste. A good NY bagel should be hard and shiny on the outside, soft delicate on the inside.

Buy quality !! Remember, the French and Italians eat bread at every single meal, those countries do not have the obesity problem we have here in the US. it's because they eat better quality bread. We eat highly processed crap.

If you enjoy them and don't want to stop eating them, then look for the healthier ones to consume. Check out the fibre content and look for a higher protein and lower carb. With breadsticks you could easily reduce the amount that you eat by cutting it into smaller portions and making the breadstick last (even a meal), longer. Most of the bread that I eat is either just over 4g fibre per slice and a 'lower carb' bread, or an extremely dense one that is 7g fibre. The latter one I find best toasted.

Hi all, over the past few months I found great alternatives to my favorite foods to alleviate 99% of my cravings. I found low calorie, high protein ice cream that tastes perfectly normal, bake french fries (No oil) with low sugar ketchup (5 cals/tblsp), all of which tastes great! However, i was wondering if there are any healthier versions of bread? I love eating bagels and breadsticks, but mostly in the form of refined white bread. I know whole wheat is the ""go to", but is there any other solution where i can make my own breadsticks without consuming too many processed carbs?
