Bread is full of nutrients and so versatile, plus in our opinion it tastes good and is a quick and easy option when you need something to eat.
However, it's widely associated with weight gain.
Yet, in a study conducted by Kohen et al (2012) they found that the group of individuals who were allowed bread in their weight loss diet were more compliant and had fewer dropouts than the group who were not allowed bread. So flexibility won over being restrictive.
The thing is, it's not bread that makes people gain weight, it's the amount of bread they eat. It's easy to go over in calories with bread as it's not as filling as other carb sources so it's likely to make you hungry and pick at foods through the day.
If you fancy some bread then go for it. We suggest a low carb/low calorie brand to fit your macros better. Also be sure to have some protein with it and try to only have it once a day so you can use other carb sources for the rest of the day.
Here's my home made chicken breast, spinach and avocado sandwich that I had for lunch today. Good source of protein, carbs, fats and fibre 👌🏽
