You can eat bread every day and lose weight. You can even have it at every meal, for example, a mini or some toast for breakfast and a couple of slices at lunch or dinner. Of course, then you should not eat pasta, rice or potatoes at the same meal or snacks throughout the day.
You can do it, it is true, but if you do it frequently, you displace more nutritionally interesting foods and the diet loses variety and becomes impoverished. Ideally, you should incorporate it with other foods in a varied diet, in one or a maximum of two meals a day.
BETTER SOURDOUGH BREAD
It is not a fad, sourdough contains “good” bacteria that help the health of the intestinal microbiota. And a healthy biota helps to control weight and also the feeling of hunger. In addition, these bacteria predigest starch and bread is easier to digest.
VARIETIES THAT FILL
- Integral. It is if it puts whole wheat flour as the first ingredient on the label and has 70% of it.
- Rye. Rye wholemeal bread has a very dense crumb, is very rich in fiber and highly satiating.
- Oatmeal. It is the one with the most protein, so it takes away hunger for much longer.
IN GOOD COMPANY
Accompanying a slice of bread with oil and chocolate, in addition to being pleasant, is a good idea, because combining a hydrate and a fat slows down the speed at which their sugars pass into the blood and makes you feel full for a longer time.
And if you want you can also encourage yourself to make your own homemade bread.
