I was doing research on what foods are healthy and i was trying to see if the foods i thought were ok to eat were on the list. Well i found out one of my favorite foods isnt all that good for me. So every morning i eat 1 bagel its as if im eating 6 slices of bread. WOW!!!!

I'm not surprised. xD I don't know why a lot of people tend to think bagels are health food, but they're far from it. Bagels are super dense and LOADED with carbs.

It depends on the size of the bagel, I assume you are referring to the supersized ones that are everywhere now. I am not sure how accurate it is to say that 1 bagel = 6 slices bread since you did not say where you found that info, and "slices of bread" can mean a lot of different things - it doesn't seem right to me: 1 plain bagel weighs about 90 grams and has 230 calories. Less than 2g fat, over 8g protein, and about 45g carbohydrates with less than 5g of those being sugar. 6 slices of white bread weigh about 180g and have 480 calories. So don't worry. You can eat that bagel. Especially if you use hummus and veggies instead of the cream cheese.

Wow I did not know that. I know bread is a carbohydrate, but I didn't know bagels contained that much! I love bagels especially with cream cheese which gives it more fat. Thanks for posting that.
