Trying to lose weight? You can still eat bread – just make sure you choose the healthiest type.

 


Whole grain

Choose whole grain bread if you are on a weight loss plan. The fibre will keep you fuller for longer, leaving less room for hunger spikes and excess calories.

Rye bread

Rye bread is another good option as it’s dense, meaning you’re less likely to overeat it, fibre-rich and easy to digest, which can reduce constipation.

The sugar is released nice and slowly, keeping blood sugar levels steady.

WH&F is celebrating the summer countdown with NatureFirst Organic Pumpernickel Bread in Rye with Sunflowers, and Rye with Flaxseed ($4.99, kadac.com.au).
