You know there is a catch, don’t you? Well, yes and no. According to some studies, people who eat white bread are hungrier two hours later and take more calories at the next meal than people who prefer whole-grain bread. So while eating whole-grain bread will not make you thinner, this type of bread will satisfy your hunger at much lesser expense.
Whole grain bread has about same amount of calories as white bread, however the fiber contained in whole grain bread will keep you full while helping you lose weight by stimulating your column. Don’t underestimate the effect of this simple change and give it a tryThere are many other additional benefits to eating whole grain bread. This includes reducing insulin resistance, preventing gallstones, stroke and hypertension.
You need to make sure you are eating real whole grain though. Read labels and look for “100 percent whole grain” or “100 percent whole wheat.” There are many labels that may give an impression that you are buying whole grain bread, when it’s not true; “made with whole grains”, “multigrain” are even simply “whole grain” are just a few examples.
If you don’t enjoy the taste of whole grain bread, try different brands. There are many kinds of whole grains that can taste quite different. Some effort might be needed initially, however you might learn to enjoy it later and will never want to switch back to white bread.
