Hi everyone, hope your journey is going well this morning?
I've a question about bread which I am hoping someone may be able to help me with.
In the past I have following Slimming World (fab actually, but the weight cam back as soon as 'normal' eating was resumed).
So, I'm now trying the NHS plan and hoping this will make me aware of claris consumption and change my eating habits because of this.
On SW eating bread is actively discouraged, one slice is 6 sins (out of a daily allowance of 15 sins).
However, the NHS plan says eat plenty of starchy foods such as wholemeal bread.
Now, I'm not proposing to eat more than two slices per day anyway, but I was wondering why some plans discourage bread consumption, whilst others promote it?
I am assuming it is because the NHS plan is a lifestyle change, not a diet as such, and encourages one to stay below calorie limits? But if anyone can be more specific, and help put my scientific mind at rest, I'd appreciate it
P.S. I also make my own wholemeal loaves. This don't give the indigestion of the mass produced stuff and it's easier to control the salt content. Don't worry, I stick to two small slices (although it is generally more filling anyway). It's also cheap to make (75p for 1.5kg of wholemeal flour at Lidl now, with 500g needed per loaf). If anyone needs the recipe, let me know, it's really, really easy.
