I've been hanging out on a diet web site lately as I try to lose weight. (Going good so far.) There was a new thread this morning asking for advice on the Bread for Life diet. I'd never heard of it but if it was what it sounded like, yuck. I looked it up. It made me want to keel over just thinking about eating that way! They recommend 12 slices of bread for women per day and 16 for men. OMG. Where's the emoticon that has rainbow puke? I laughed so hard at what they were recommending. Eat all this bread but do not eat fruit, because fruit will mess with your blood sugar. Part of their reasoning for so much bread is that the complex carbs in the bread increase serratonin levels, keep your blood sugar regulated, and keep you full and motivated. (Well if bread is so good at increasing seratonin, I shouldn't have needed Imitrex for my migraines. Just pop a loaf of whole wheat bread. Gluten is one of my migraine triggers.) This is one of the stupidest diets I've heard of! I'd think all that bread, whole grain or not, would clog up the pipes (unless you're an undiagnosed Celiac who gets D with gluten). All those carbs would send my blood sugar crashing, and I'd have the serious munchies. Oh my goodness. Be interesting to see what feedback she gets.

If I ate like that, I probably would lose weight. I'ld be soooo sick!

Seriously, even for a person with no gluten problems, it doesn't sound safe.

I just thought of the total calories. At an average of 100 calories a slice ( averaged the two whole wheats my family had). That's 1200 calories in bread. You really couldn't eat anything else in this diet!

K, I agree--the calories, the carbs, the fiber...OUCH!!. My gut hurts just thinking about it. :blink:

although, truth be told, the "IH that was " COULD devour an entire homemade warm French baguette slathered in Kerry Gold Irish Butter back in the day....(fat) buTT, she also wore a size 20 pants at one point.

LOL I probably wouldn't make it through the first "meal." I'd be on the floor crying for my mommy. Something that unbalanced can't be healthy, and it's nutritionally lacking. Reminds me of the cabbage soup diet, where one day you get the pleasure of drinking 8 glasses of milk during the day with your cabbage soup or 8 bananas or some other crap.

IrishHeart, I too was one who could down a baguette or loaf of Cuban bread or package of Pillsbury crescent rolls dripping with butter back in the day. (And today has been the kind of day where I would have done just that.) Oooo, Kerry Gold was my favorite butter!

Oh my word!! I can only imagine the trouble I'd be in on that diet! 12 slices of bread is too much for anyone, never mind the fact I'm a Celiac. I know what 1 speck of cross contamination can do, I don't even dare imagine what 12 slices would feel like!? 😲 My poor Mommy's phone would be ringing all day from me crying that my guts hurt and hoping for it to be quick haha some people will try anything though, I have a friend who has her hands in the next best diet fads going. I won't mention the bread gig to her, I can't stand to watch that..... 😜

A loaf of multi-grain bread--soft inside--crispy, crunchy crust--gently warmed--dripping with butter-----I just died and went to heaven. Aahhhh (or should it be waaaaah).

Ick, I've been gluten free long enough to know not to go there but not long enough to forget how sick I could be. Ugh, even my Mom's homemade right out of the oven bread doesn't tempt me, now that's some good stuff!
