Take it away: Just stop eating it. There are so many alternatives such as sweet potatoes, whole grain rice, etc. Many of the breads are low in nutrients, some of which are then put back in the breads. I applaud you to remove bread and replace it with healthier choices. ...Read more

Best to minimize but: Bread can contribute to weight gain by raising blood sugar causing increased insulin. Wheat also seems to stimulate appetite.

What are the effects of an unbalanced diet on young children (for example, eating just pbj on bread)?

A simple rule of thumb is to cut back on calories by eating smaller meals and avoiding snacks. Exercise to tone, and to burn calories. Keep in mind that fat=9 calories/gram whereas proteins and carbohydrates =4 calories/gram of food. Eat healthy! ...Read more

They can turn grass/hays into proteins/meats, we cannot. A variety of food types is recommended--see the pyramid for example. Consult your doc/nutritionist. Live well, melani6. Good luck. ...Read more
