This might seem strange but every time i eat like homemade bread from like panera i always start to hiccup and they don't go away till i'm done. Why?
Hiccups: Hiccups result from irritation of the diaphragm. Most commonly, this is from stomach distention. This may be after a large meal, or when one eats quickly consuming large amounts of air. For your purpose, i suspect that the bread you are eating is swelling inside your stomach, and/or, you eat it quickly so you ingest lots of air. Both are leading to stomach distension and diaphragm irritation. ...Read more
I eat a lot of homemade crackers instead of bread.I cook it in the stove without using any oil or salt.
Is it bad for health?Will this make me fat?
Only you will know: "I eat a lot of" means different things to different people. Some people think 6 crackers is a lot, while others think 26 is a lot.

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
No: Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product.

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

If these are your concerns, then use whole grain. ...Read more
