Burgen Bread, Wholemeal bread (hovis nasty stuff) or Seeded Batch?

I don't normally eat bread unless I'm super tired and can't make some kind of better carb source, but which is the better stuff?

I'm thinking Burgen will be the better and seeded batch.

If it's only the odd occasion does it really matter?

I'd choose Burgen bread, the soya and linseed variety.

You'll get more protein per slice and their bread is very low GI (if you're a follower of that).

Well I normally have 2-3 pieces a day really fella. Just to get in calories and that with my breakfast and other meals.

Lovely mate, one of my meals is now two wholemeal bagels, a small ammount of light philly and 100g chicken roll/ham on each. the bagles have 10g protein each so total 60g protein for that meal and it goes down easy.

Joe - that's like saying which is better: - coke, smack, meths or LSD.

Okay, poor analogy, but what I'm trying to say is it's indigestible carbs. We're not built to digest grains (why do you think your ****'s full of corn kernels after you eat sweetcorn...?! Our bodies don't know what to do with it).

Soon as I stopped eating bread/grainy crap, I stopped having IBS. Needless to say, I don't eat carbs. I find my diet gives me all the energy I need without...

Just sayin'...

Why are people so anti bread, ok White bread is sh1te, but 'nasty' hovis stuff I think is fine a couple pieces a day- wholegrain and 4g protein a slice. Don't know why ppl hate on it!!

That's because it's full of estrogen promoting plant sterols and soy. Stay well clear IMO.

I don't see the problem with bread, yes it can be hard to digest but I used it all through my contest prep 200g a day last year everyday even up to show day

do you stay in ketosis pretty much all year? true we dont need carbs to survive if the right supplementation was taken i.e fibre vits/mins

but glucose is the primary source of energy for the body and of course we know the importance of insulin and its anabolic benefits along with glycogen etc

a freind of mine stays in ketosis similarly (except for a carb meal once a week to kickstart metabolism and somewhat replenish glycogen) and doesnt complain of energy levels declining but while losing bf wouldnt be a problem making significant gains would be

much better sources of carbs than bread but 2-3 slices wont hurt if not cutting.
