Mine would kill me if I gave him Ryvita. Mind you I would kill him, if he gave it to me. Definitely cardboard. The malted I buy is 51 calories a slice, lovely it is too.

Which bread does he eat? The thing is the lower calorie breads won’t be as filling. That white bread is a real binge food I find.

As bread goes, 63 cals per slice for white bread isn't too bad , as long as he can stop at just two. From day one of my weightloss journey I switched to buying a small Hovis sliced wholemeal and kept it in the freezer. I still buy this. You can pop it straight into the toaster still frozen, or take it out of the freezer in advance for a sandwich. The secret is to serve the bread with healthy fats and protein (eg cheese, eggs ,chicken,nut butters) as the filling power of those foods satisfes longer than the effect from bread.

Yes, I do similar to Ellie, I buy a smalll granary sliced loaf and keep in the freeezer. Two slices is 180 calories, and hubby has thick doorstops of whatever he fancies. Lol 😂

Out of interest I weighed a ciabatta roll from L**l’s today, 95g, over 300 calories of refined white carbohydrates . . .

I buy granary bread also when not making my own and also divide it up into 2 slices and put it in the freezer other wise I would eat it in 1 day. So the saying is 2 great minds think alike. Heeeeeee

Sprouted grain breads like Ezekiel bread are good. None of the terrible health issues that beset normal loaf.

You just have to tell him the crusty white farmhouse loaf is a birthday treat from now on and it is no longer the 1950s.

I had to google Ezekiel bread but it looks good 😀

I do buy from a small independent baker, a granary loaf that they label “low GI” but I just like the taste 😊

I discovered in Lidl the other day that they do low GI bread and rolls, and also high protein rolls, which i tried and was very impressed by the taste/texture of.

Oh that sounds good I will give it a try , I shop in Lidl so fingers crossed x
