Does Baguettes Really Work
I am so busy at work as a nurse I rarely have time to eat. I accidentally ate moldy bread today. Dangerous?

Bad gas, rumbling insides but no bloating if I eat bread products, both types. This only started recently, can anyone help me work out what's wrong?
Abdominal symptoms that are triggered by eating bread are suspicious for a gluten sensitivity. If you exclude all gluten and get better, then have difficulty when you reintroduce gluten (EG, wheat products), then you will know that is the cause.
Best to talk with your doctor about this possibility. ...Read more
I'm still breastfeeding my 5 month old, and im not losing weight and haven’t since he was born. I eat healthy ish and I work in a active work place. What are some things that can help me lose weight? I've recently cut out bread from my diet.
Energy out/Energy In: Weight loss is tough!! Beware 'healthy' foods. There is so much misleading advertising and misinformation around what constitutes healthy food. 'Low fat' for example often means high sugar. The simple honest truth is that in order to lose weight your energy output (breast feeding + exercise + living) must be less than your energy in. ...Read more

I read this http://authoritynutrition. Com/why-is-bread-bad-for-you/ and was wondering if bread really is bad for you. Are these studies correct?
This isn't science: Sites like this are a mix of fact and fantasy. A page that starts off "the whiter the bread the sooner you are dead" is campfire ghost-story entertainment, not science. The vast majority of people are not gluten sensitive. The focus here is on the familiar bashing of processed, cheap foods and generating fear. If you're concerned, get with a scientific nutritionist with a holistic slant, not this. ...Read more

Here my: Recommendation by personal experience and my own research done long time ago. I am a gym junkie. Weight lifting and keeping high protein good carb diet very important for me. Choose brands that are whole grain and calorie smart (80 -90 calorie per slice) and good fiber. Many brands. I like pepperidge farm whole wheat. Comes light with less than 100 calorie/slice and double fiber with 100/slice. ...Read more
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
Bread is fine.: Bread is fine, but it really should be whole grain, not white or even whole wheat. Whole grain bread has a good fiber content, allowing you fill up with fewer calories and stave off hunger longer. What you put in your sandwich is also important - lean proteins, raw vegetables. ...Read more
Should be ok: Accidentally eating some moldy bread (or mouldy, if british) should not cause any problems. Just throw the rest of the bread away. ...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. It would be ok to have some whole grain wheat-free breads in great moderation. For more info see http://www. Huffingtonpost.

Refinement: White bread is made from flour which has been milled so the husks are removed and only the core remains. Whole grain bread is coarsely ground so the husks remain partly with that type of flour. Some consider that whole grain bread is more healthy and certainly the taste and texture are different. If these are your concerns, then use whole grain. ...Read more
Possibly: This may contain unsafe chemicals. Best to use plastic bags intended for food. ...Read more
What to do if I'm trying to gain a lot of weight, so I have been eating white bread. Is this healthy?
Don't gain fat.: The key is increasing your intake of lean calories, not just fat-laden or sugar-laden foods. Regular exercise will also help your body deposit the calories more meaningfully and will prevent you from just gaining fat. Look for lean proteins like fish, chicken and turkey, as well as sources of complex carbohydrates and fiber. ...Read more
