Double-the challenge, double your fun. Today you are busting your legs and shoulders and adding to your diet challenge is slowing down on the amount of bread you eat.
Two slices of white bread 160 calories
The problem with bread is that most people use it as a way to get in some empty calories to make you feel full instead of eating real food. Whole grain bread is another story, it’s a whole grain which contains fiber. While bread is on the food pyramid fast food bread, pizza, bagels and the like are not. Bread is fortified with vitamins but bread will add the calories and pounds quickly to your body in no time.
The RDA of breads, pastas, cereals is 6-11 portions
You must understand this doesn’t mean you need to eat 6-11 slices of bread a day. But eating 6-11 portions of whole grains which contain iron and protein and trace minerals not found in “bread” is off the wall. Bread bloats. Think about it, one brick of yeast makes 96 loaves of bread. What’s it doing inside your stomach when you scarf on half a loaf or more? Your digestive system can’t handle it.
Bread sales have been going down since the 70’s
Eating bread is like drinking water is t losing weight. If you want results you can see, drink nothing but water and n more than 2 pieces of bread. If you had toast for breakfast, then you can’t have pizza for dinner no matter how many vegetables are on it, and even if you don’t use cheese. If you are used to eating a sandwich for every meal, count this as one of those small changes that count. Eat your burger with a fork, ordered without the bread.
You are beginning the second portion of the 30-day challenge if you haven’t made this one change, now is the time.
