Bread remains a favorite food for many thanks to all the delicious variations it comes in. If you recently started a Phentermine 37.5 mg regimen and are wondering if you can still eat bread and lose weight, read on. It is possible!
Go For Whole Grains
Always stick to whole grain bread instead of its white counterpart that has been stripped of all nutrition.
“A food is only considered a ‘whole grain’ if the first ingredient on the packaging says, ‘whole grain or whole wheat,’” Rebecca Lewis, RD told Eat This, Not That! “There are no standardized regulations or definitions for the label ‘multigrain,’ so it’s the one to watch out for.”
Organic grains are the best.
“Wheat has changed over the last 50 years and is no longer the recognizable crop of our forefathers,” says Dr. Tasneem Bhatia, MD. “While the research goes back and forth on the role of pesticides and chemicals in our health, organic wheat has a lower exposure to pesticides, providing a healthier bread option.”
Patronize Your Local Bakery
Industrialization has resulted in plenty of processed bread; however, you will still find those made with only a few ingredients at your local bakery. Bakeries make bread fresh every day and leave out tons of salt and preservatives to provide you with a more whole food.
Skip The Butter
Leave the butter off your bread.
“Pair your favorite bread with healthy fats like olive oil, coconut oil, ghee and butter,” says Dr. Bhatia. “The Italian tradition of bread with olive oil is a healthy option since the combination prevents over-consumption of bread.”
