    Question Is eating bread fattening?

    Hi,
    I heard it isn’t good to eat breads. I eat a lot of whole wheat bread, but I heard that bread in general puts unwanted weight on your body.

    Is this true?
    Does anyone know where I can find info. on this?

    Also, is it bad to eat bread before going to sleep? I heard it doesn’t digest quickly (and turns to fat) because you don’t do anything active while sleeping.

    Thanks for reading!

    Eating bread does not make you fat. Eating more calories than you burn is what makes you gain fat.

    As far as bread, it's carbohydrates, and if you're trying to lose weight or get lean, you want to keep your carb intake in check.

    Eating carbs before bed is not something I recommend when you're trying to lose weight.

    ------------------
    Just because the majority believes it, does not make it true!

    Question

    Hi Prince and others!

    Eating carbs before bed is not something I recommend when you're trying to lose weight.
    Why don't you recommend doing this?

    Thanks

    Yes, if you got a dieting program it is much better to eat a bread every morning than a rice. Like other member says eating a bread it is not make you fat it is little calories.

    Unlike Robert, I prefer to eat any carbs I consume in the evening. I get hungry after I eat them. This way, I go to sleep rather than overeating.

    To the OP - many people find wheat in particular messes with normal satiety signals - I'm one of 'em. I eat wheat, and my body just feels hungrier afterward. From there I can choose to remain hungry, or overeat. The wheat itself won't make me fat, but I assure you overeating does!

    Dmiranda I flat out disagree! Where are you getting this idea from? Plus there is no such thing as fattening. Calories in vs. calories out. Plus, thanks(not) for the record bump....this thread was 9 years old!

    I enjoy bread served as a liquid. I consume it in the evening. I am not fat. I appreciate the high calories and it's wholesome goodness.

    In the mornings I prefer the opposite effect beans have. I take this in the form of a liquid as well.

    This has got to be the most delayed threadbump ever. 9 years! I know people who were born in the interim.

    Beer is also know as liquid bread. Coffee is made from beans.

    I feel bread isn't the best choice of carb. Whole wheat is the only way to go if you are going to eat it. I prefer oatmeal.

    Why do you feel this is the case, and why do you prefer whole wheat or oatmeal?
