I eat bread alot , especially for breakfast. The normal ones, not whole wheat or anything. But are breads healthy or good for diet?I see some people saying that its not good if you want to eat clean. If no, then what are the other options instead of bread ? Like .. What wraps?

I think with eating clean it refers more to how the bread is made -- if you are buying bread then be aware of how it is made and what is put into it. Is it unprocessed or processed flour, are there preservatives added, etc.? Obviously making your own is best but may not be an option for you. There are lots of healthy choices -- and no, it doesn't have to be wheat. Some have reactions to wheat -- gluten-free had become a mantra these days and is touted everywhere.

A lot of people say bread is not good for a diet but actually it iz very good. But it has to be the Whole wheat or fiber wheat kind. It will help you lose weight especially if you eat it in the morning. Thats what I do and it works. But you also need to keep in mind all the other foods you eat throught the day. Make sure you have lots of water, fruits and green leafy vegetables.

I think bread is fine. Just think clear about what you are eating on it.

Well in my opinion white bread is not good for you to lose weight, try wheat products i know they might not have the best taste but in the long run it'll pay off also you can go with whole wheat wraps taste more better then the bread, you can also try pita bread it is really taste full and healthy for you. And for great tasty recipes or other fitness questions you might have you can go to bodybuilding.com they hav many articles regarding any fitness needs

Go for organic sprouted bread... low in calories, no fat and high in fiber :) Tastes great too!

Pita bread is good without all the additives and junk. Also, homemade bread and alternatives like using oat or coconut flour or even spelt. Good luckĀ

I think bread is ok in moderation. I sometimes substitute lettuce for bread say when cooking Mexican or making a burger.

I tend to stick to wholemeal breads and usually eat pitta, flat breads or wraps as alternatives to bread.

Avoid white bread and try to buy bread with the least amount of wheat in it. Also, if you're having bread for breakfast, toasting it reduces the calories. A healthy and nutritious replacement for bread would be oatmeal.
