Examples of Store-Bought Breads To Stay Away From:
No even with the very high GI number if you look at the per serving number you will see this argument is very flawed. These foods are much lower calorie and have a lot more fiber which changes how quickly they are digested…And snickers are one of the better candy bars because of the peanuts…… Either this Doctor does not understand the charts or is lying to the public to sell books.
Glucose is not toxic. Excess glucose is bad for you….. No glucose means NO energy and you could not function….. Miss using the GI to eliminate grains from your diet is just as foolish as ignoring the importance of glucose in your diet.
The author admitted that TWO slices of bread is worse, not one. The Snickers bar serving size is double of tge singke sluce of bread. Therefore, TWO slices of bread is similar to the Snickers for the last column value. Previous replies noted the snickers bar is a group of food types in itself as well. And another mentioned two slices of bread should have something in between them! Whole wheat bread releases carbs at a slower rate than white bread.
A proper diet is so simple: Every meal needs a balance of lean protien, good fats and good Carbs. Ironically the Subway sandwich diet is actually a representative example of a perfect balance and the correct ratio for a meal: Let me see the number of subjects, mean increase, etc…. This topic is so misunderstood by the masses and the biochemistry cherry picked to a point of view.
It really cracks me up. Have stopped eating bread, and trying to avoid all glutens. In 16 days I have lost 14 lbs. But more importantly, my blood sugar has dropped. Usually had readings from , now , , last night So, regardless of indexes, etc.
I am of Sicilian heritage and breads, pasta, bakery goods, have been a big part of my life—and downfall; obesity, diabetes, three heart attacks from atrial fib. I think the oatmeal is fine. For every multiple of the quantity of GL indicated you have to multiply the number so a whole bagel has a Glycaemic Load of and the GL of for a 30g serving is meaningless.
A full bagel weighs more like g. So a whole bagel has a whopping GL of So GI is a useful index with a caveat for fruits and veg. GL is ok but more tricky for grains and bread. Some things like a Snickers bar has a high satisfaction ratio. I usually feel I have had enough halfway through the bar. It is very unlikely to want more than a 60g bar.
Home baked bread like I do is so tasty that my children just eat an entire fresh loaf within seconds. No time for butter or to serve the stew. So usually I serve the stew first and bring the bread to the table after everyone starts on the stew!! When bread is consumed with beef stew like in our family, the overall GL is drastically reduced. Our family has been on a high meat and low GI diet except for ice creams and cakes as afters!!
My blood stats have got better since I replaced vegetable oils with lard and beef dripping and drastically reduced the intake of wheat and rice. Having read all of these comments and the article and most of the secondary sources, both positive and negative, I have to say that whether or not the actual quote investigated is spot-on accurate or not, the principle behind it certainly appears to be sound.
Well, I for one, agree with the almost all of the glycemic index — eating almost entirely from the low level. I could not lose weight after chemo and a long stint of high-dose steroids and my lymphedema was getting worse. I had gone vegan, because that matched my personal goals, but still lost nothing.
Then I started eating by only choosing the foods from the low glycemic values and it was incredible how quickly the weight is coming off. I feel so much better and less in a fog. Yes, you get quick energy with high gi values but then it drops and you need more. The other big change is that I am not craving food constantly, as high GI content does. It makes sense to eat foods as close to their natural form as possible, however there are a few natural ones that surprised me, such as pineapple, which has a higher GI value.
I steer clear of restaurants and do all my cooking at home and in every other way, eating by the low glycemic values has given me back my life. As for whole grain bread, I allow myself one slice per day.
More than that and my feet swell up again… my personal indicator of how well I am sticking to the diet. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

I tend to agree with you. Clare on September 12, at 5: Have you referenced this….? Eileen Harrison on April 20, at 3: Michael O'Neill on April 20, at 4: Thanks for the comment, Eileen! This is part of why I find travel so fascinating… -Michael Reply. Eileen Harrison on April 20, at 5: Michael O'Neill on April 21, at 2: Store your bread in freezer. Take enough for the day or whatever and put in container or bag to thaw out in refrigerator.
Wishing you love and light for your Highest Good! May the Blessings Be! There is nothing wrong with eating lots of bread; so long as it is properly prepared. Weston Price foundation followers say that grain in healthy indigenous societies was always prepared in two of the following three ways: This is to break down phytic acid; which apparently is part of what wrecks our health; with white flour being the other big thing.
So, you should look for whole grain bread. The only bread I can find locally that meets these criteria is Alvarado St. Foodbabe has one of their breads shown above, but seems unaware of the sourdough variety.
It is certified organic, and made with honey, but no added sugar. Some preparations are able to reduce phytates markedly by only soaking overnight, but with rye grain added. It appears rye is higher in phytase. Killer Dave bread is available at Costco.
I discovered that I get lots of stomach cramping and gas and bloating from a diet with bread, sugar etc. Diane, Try Einkorn flour, and there Pasta. It comes from Italy, and it is the real Ancient grain. There bring it back.. I buy it at my local market , health food department, and whole Foods carries it.. Allot of people that are eating Einkorn flour, pasta, are not have any gluten problems… There is a New book on Amazon called..
I have nothing to do with Amazon, or Einkorn.. I love there flour and Pasta, the only type I will buy. I make a sourdough and a light rye using einkorn flour and a bread machine and they both come out amazing.. Just substitute the einkorn flour in any bread recipe you find. If you have a Superstore they carry some Ezekel breads. You should find them in the freezer of the Organic section of the store.
Sorry Food Babe, but I do not agree with you about eating those nasty store bought breads.. Sorry but these store bought breads are Not healthy. Even those Wheats are causing Gluten problems, and gut problems.. This wheat is not your normal, hybridized wheat consisting of 42 chromosomes per grain.
It is reminiscent of the ancient wheat of biblical times, 16 chromosomes per grain. Not added to it. This does not turn to Sugar right away like the store bought wheat breads. To make a easy bread etc. I have nothing to do with Einkorn wheat, I just love, and do Not gain weight, or get bloated eating this.. No nasty side effects, and most diabetics can eat it. Put Organic grass fed butter on this.. You can check out this article I found it very helpful.
Another similar product to Ezekiel bread is Silver Hills. Its a BC company in Abbotsford. You can get this almost anywhere but I get it at Costco as well. But on the premis that it would not over the other additives. I like Ezekiel bread but have no idea where to even start to make that kind of bread.
I have polycysitic ovarian syndrome, Insulin resistance, infertility I have taken metformin and had two children my cycles have stopped again and as soon as they stopped I started mysteriously putting on weight again! Nicholle, please seek out a Naturopathic nutritionist to help with your symptoms and diet.
They are experts in healing the body with food. The only ingredients are: I am so proud of you, Vani!!! We are all so fortunate to have someone help us with all of the untruths. I am still trying to figure out why fluoride used in atomic bombs is good for us…I just saw your website today and wondered why additives that are banned all over the world are used in our bread.
In a nutshell, should we just eat organic and eliminate white flour products, sugar, canola and corn? Was wondering if you looked into the Franz gluten-free products, and how they rate with the products on your Healthier Breads list?
What do you think about organic alpine valley bread? You may find that they have these breads in the UK store. Buy bread fresh from your local baker, tastes far better than any mass produced packaged and branded stuff from a supermarket.
It has amaranth, hemp, quinoa, teff, sourgum, flax, and millet, and I get it in our local natural food co-op. Although the pieces are small compared to the over-processed grocery store brands, it toasts well and tastes amazing.
I also use Three Bakers 7 Ancient Grains bread. Their website says they use non-GMO ingredients, too. Just eat meat and veggies. Go to your Meijer stores, they sell it in their freezer section, lots of Meijer stores all thur Michigan.. Please read the ingredients of both the sprouted breads and the breads made with flour.
I hope you come to the conclusion that, in the long run, the real cost here will be your health if you decide to stay with the garbage sorry on the supermarket shelves. How is that not more than the wheat breads?? I have been making a simple pizza dough recipe in my Food Processor with the bread blade that comes with it. All it has in it is organic flour, water, organic olive oil, Himalian sea salt, yeast and a teaspoon of organic sugar for starting yeast.
After rising the dough for an hour I put it in a Baggie and put in the refrigerator so that I can tear off small pieces whenever I want to make an individual pizza.
I also use organic sauce, organic olives, organic onions, and whatever else organic. I also figured out I was just as allergic to gluten free things because I also choke on rice, sometimes even when it is labeled organic. Would you mind posting it? OR maybe you did and I missed it. Raw butter,lard,coconut all organic is best…or if you cannot get raw butter available only in California and Georgia….
Organic fat is essential as all the junk lives and loves fat…you want to insure any fat you ingest does not have a home for junk to live in…. Factor X is key ingredient via Dr. Pottenger — Price- Pottenger Nutrtiion Foundation.
Cooked honey sprayed on bees kills them in minutes. Raw honey does not. Always eat raw for health benefits it does have. It will not raise blood sugar when eaten raw in reasonable amount. It is now evidently clear the Supermarket is now nothing but a Death Dealer. I think it is time to become a Paleo Hunter — Gatherer and eat only a fresh non GMO vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, and fresh slaughtered meats and wild caught fish.
Time to buy right from the farms who grow Heritage crops. Grow your own herbs! Home grown fresh Peppermint is a delight. Plant a Sassafras tree — make tea. Time to start making your own home brews, wines and cordials too! Home made wines and cordials are wonderful. Real home cooked Mulled Cider with Rum and butter is a treat. Mulled Wine too is good if it is done correctly. I love Organic, non homogenized whole milk that still has butter in it.
The white water they sell in the stores as Milk is nothing but toxic piss in a plastic bottle. For a real treat, find fresh Goose eggs. There is nothing else like them. Vie for wild meats. Plains -grass fed only Buffalo is the Best.
Avoid any fish or sea food caught in the Pacific Ocean. My intent is to never eat their garbage again. Not even their coffee! Unfortunately, those of us who are on a strict budget, or retired on same do not have the ability to drive long distances to farms.
We have to deal with what is in the stores and Sprouts or Trader Joes are the best…. Or appearing to, with their Simple Truth foods, and I am even seeing more organic foods in Walmart. I should have added those with limited mobility. I just had hip surgery, and sometimes have felt grateful to get anything to eat, having to have my groceries delivered.
I sometimes look at the city as a death camp….. Still working on that. I need to do research on making wine. I try to eat semi-vegan if I can, since free-range meat is hard to come by, I have given up on grass-fed buffalo. I know there is a couple who was trying to make it, near Colorado Springs, and they said they were the only grass-fed non-feed lot bison in CO, but have never seen their meats here in Aurora, although I contacted Vitamin Cottage and Sprouts about them.
I have recently discovered Sprouts and love their store. Like it better than Whole Foods…. I think it is time to become a Paleo -Hunter — Gatherer and eat only a fresh non GMO vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, and fresh slaughtered meats and wild caught fish. I can now eat bread. NO Body should drink or eat Soy.. It was suppose to fatten up Cows, Pigs, Chickens etc.
Not meant for Humans. Use a whey protein or egg protein powder such as Jay Robb or a quality whey product is key. Even stevia is questionable if not made properly. Sweetleaf stevia is best I can find and does not raise blood sugar. Some stevias have maltodextrin or some sugar ose on label. Sweetleaf is very accessable. Also sweetleaf brand had many flavors…chocolate,coconut,regular etc…. It is better to invest in a high quality product that works that a cheap ineffective one that will harm your body more than help.
You can also soak and blend your own almond milk or hemp seed milk or any nut milk you like. I do not recommend soy milk…only fermented soy in minute amounts has potential health benefits. So clever marketing makes soy milk look like a great alternative to milk.
Our health depends on it. You must decide for yourself. I do hope no mother gives her child soy milk. It is too experimential and the results of soy fed children is another topic to discuss. And I hope she does not use it especially during pregnancy.
Fermented soy is key of how to benefit from soy products. Even edamame is questionable to ingest but if you do treat yourself,only a few pods is recommended. It is not the health food it is advertised to be…hard to digest too. A few once in a while if you are an adamame fan and no digestive conflicts going on with you.
Why bother to strain the almond mill out at all? If you want the full benefits, soak-em, blend-em in water, and drink it raw-unfiltered. For those of you who think store bought almond milk is a healthy choice, just look at all the added ingredients.
The rest of the added filler, is for taste and texture. This just leaves the question, how much of the real active ingredients are actually present? They do tell you how many calories are in it right on the front of the box. I have used these for many years now as I am Lactose Intolerant. Flour water and yeast, a little salt and thats it. I agree that sprouted grains are good.
What are your thoughts on sourdough? Hello Vani, thank you for your useful articles! I have no problem with fresh fruits which I always have handy and love to eat them whole!
Then I went to your Bread analysis! In checking Michael Greger, M. However, what most worries me is….. Have you ever tried grinding nonGMO organic wheat?
They pay for themselves. And it only takes 15 mins to grind it up in an electric grinder. Nutrimill makes a wonderful grinder. Making homemade whole wheat bread is the best this way. We grind the wheat then follow a super easy bread machine recipe. Every Sunday you can do this for the weekly loaf. You will never go back to store-bought again. Thank you all so much, i am new to this again. Needed all of these reminders of how important eating healthy can be.
Sharing these great ideas mean so much to all of us. While this article gets a lot right, it omits quite a bit and gets a few things wrong and neglects to tell readers how to identify bread, and which ones are truly best to eat.
Grains are the sources of many diseases and can even induce mental illness in a small number of people. Hoffer not only found how to cure Schizophrenics without harmful drugs, he found out the cause of addiction and how to break it, including food addiction and wheat addiction.
Foodbabe is likely a wheat addict and does not know why. If people want to learn how to eat properly , I suggest they read the greatest physician since Jesus Christ, Dr. Hoffer , 50 years ago advocated the perfect diet for a human as limited or no intake of Red meat, no sugar, no grains, wheat especially, and no dairy, no food coloring or processed food, no alcohol, no coffee and a diet with limited carbs, and based upon whole foods, and rich in vegetables with some fruits and nuts.
