Do you believe that all kinds of bread have the same nutricious value? White bread, whole wheat same thing? So is it a myth that when on diet we have to eat only whole wheat bread?

There a simple rule to follow: avoid eating anything white! White bread has to undergo a great deal of processing to become white, and mf the nutrients are destroyed in the processing. It's just empty calories. e brands claim they've fortified the bread, so that the nutrition is back artificial nutrients can't approach the value of the natural ones found in whole grains!

Well, eating whole wheat bread when you are on a diet or not on a diet is really healthy, because you are eating whole wheat, which is good for the health and won't be making you fat. I've tried eating when I was on a diet, it's not really that tasty as the white bread, but it slimmed me down.

Whole wheat bread is healthier, the more refined a food is generally the less healthy it becomes. I much prefer wholemeal bread anyway!

Many people who are dieting won't eat whole grain bread because they're counting calories, and whole wheat bread is higher in calories. What they don't realize is that there's actually some nutrition in the whole wheat bread, and it accounts for a lot more than just calories, where white bread is just simple carbs that don't do the body any good.
