    I'll start out by saying...I edited my diet.....Sweets were dropped which were a huge weaknesses in the past now.... mehhhh take them or leave them....I have been off diet soda..for 4 weeks...(my choice I felt addicted to the stuff)...My weakness now ...carbs....specifically bread products...When I partake I time them before my lifting or running....later in the day...get the carbs through fruits and veggies....But damn....I slide and when I do.... I hit dinner and cinnamon rolls....At times I'll turn to oatmeal or cream of wheat....but that's bland and getting old fast....Dudes.... you got suggestions for a bread replacement...Oh I don't do soy.....PLEASE.....Sincere thanks in advance...BUD

    I have the same weakness. I eliminate all bread products during the week, then have a bread binge on fridays. I basically make bread my cheat day.

    Use apple juice instead of water to make your oatmeal.

    And you can add:
    apple sauce
    chopped apple
    chopped walnuts
    raisins
    cinnamon
    nutmeg
    vanilla

    it won't be bland after that! ...icon_wink.gif

    There is no escaping bread... There just isn't a way! I have been on a "no carb" diet too, and it is hard. But I find that you need to indulge sometimes on something that you really want to eat - and that will definitely take the edge off and you won't crave it anymore.

    Um... What's wrong with bread?
    Sweet bread and pastries I understand... but bread?
    Isn't apple sauce loaded with sugar and high fructose corn syrup? That seems worse to me than a slice of wheat bread.

    Carbs should never be ate before performance...
    They slow you down.

    You guys try way too hard...

    Is the reason breads are so bad is because they are processed before being use to make bread so they tend to breakdown into sugars faster? I seriously don't know.

    I have the same problem, but did not eliminate all breads, rather the bread that I was consuming was a bad choice (white, full of sugar, etc)...I turned to multi-grain sprouted, salt-free such as Trader Joe's Sprouted Multi-Grain/Salt Free, 1 slice equates to 90 calories and sodium is only 10mg.

    I usually will have two slices, with peanut butter. I just can not eliminate all breads- just the bread choices I consume.

    Just focus on eating non processed carbs. Use celery ,carrots, and zucchini sticks for hummas dip, almond or peanut butter. Eat trail
    Mix and dried fruits of all kind. Try sunflower,sesame and pumpkin seeds. Make smoothies out of frozen fruit ,whey powder and almond milk. When you get your fill of these you won't crave bread.

    Try light rye bread or weight watchers bread; under 60 calories a slice and only about 8-12 g carbs.
    I know some people are really anti-artificial sweeteners, but I add Splenda and cinnamon to oatmeal - yum!

    bread is not bad for you, I dont get why people have that idea in their head. That does not mean you can eat a half a loaf a day but...stick to ryes or whole wheat. Sweet and cinnamon rolls should be avoided except when you really want it

    You can buy the unsweetened kind, just mushed up apples, but you have to look.

    Every other day I eat two pain au chocolates on my way to work, with a cup of unsweetened coffee. The little pastry shop faces the canal and a little cobbled street and it's got a little furnace, also it's the perfect warm place to read in the winter.

    Wellness is not just physical health, it's a balance of physical health and personal mental well-being. You might feel good about yourself with a perfect diet, but you can enjoy food in a balance.

    Your pendulum is swinging from extreme to extreme, but the key is finding a balance that works so you'll be well, and not just healthy.

    We had a huge cookout at work yesterday...grilled burgers and weenies.
    I did a huge workout last night to make up for it, because I pigged the fuck out. icon_lol.gif

    As a side note, THANK YOU for calling pain au chocolate by it's correct name. It's a pet peeve of mine when people call it a "chocolate croissant" which makes no sense. It's not even crescent-shaped.

    Wow. You really sympathize with other people's pet peeves. It's kind of touching, but I probably wouldn't go that far. icon_smile.gif

    There are also chocolate filled croissants. Exactly that. Friggin' tasty with coffee particularly when they are eaten as a rare treat.
    I used to buy them until I overdosed on then. Microwaved for a few seconds was enough to coax out the butter and chocolate flavors and aromas, while not destroying the puff pastry of the croissant. (Drool...)

    I can't imagine eliminating bread from my diet. Life wouldn't be worth living. There again I don't have a flat tummy or any sign of abs.

    Just like any other basic foods, eating carbs (bread and rice) is reasonable within limits and preferable in the first half of the day. Eating an unreal, non sustainable diet is misleading oneself and a recipe for failure.

    Breads contain gluten which can cause internal inflammation which causes the body to produce steroids that have the side effect of pumping fat into your omentum, the dangerous, puddingly bioactive fat that can be fed via the portal vein directly to the liver and blood stream and you die.

    How's that for a run-on sentence. That should be copied, framed, and submiited for an award.

    Its not "there again," but "then again." You really should get your bf du jour to proofread your posts. ...oh, he can read, right? ... Or is that not a requirement specified on your application. ... icon_wink.gif
