How Many Calories in Bread - The Staff of Life

Article by Diet Bites

 


Bread has become unpopular lately due to the popularity of low carb diets.

Word is out among the Diet Streets that if something is white, then don't eat it.

White bread, white rice, white pasta - foods that are all high in carbs and foods that spell 'Whoops' to a carb restricted diet.

But don't count bread out of your diet just yet, even if you are carb-dieting it. White might be out, but wheat is definitely thin - I mean IN - wheat is definitely in.

Wheat bread contains virtually the same number of calories per ounce as the white counterpart, but the grains are more beneficial to the body that breads based on white flour.

Kcals in Breads

The energy values are based on a one-ounce serving unless noted. Please note that calories in different brands will vary slightly due to the recipes used by the manufacturer OR the recipe created at home.

Dieting Tips for Bread

* If you add nuts to the muffin recipe, add about 30 calories per serving.

 


** Fill with light salads, lean meats and even scrambled eggs.

***Please note that the calories are dependent upon the recipe so this is a general average of the bread recipes we tested in the Diet Bites kitchen.  Spoonbread is very high in fat.  High fat equals high calories.

+This is a very delicious, low calorie bread.  Weight Watchers also puts out the following tasty diet-friendly items: white bread, English muffins and bagels.

Nutritional Notes, Quick Recipes

There are many varieties of diet bread, as well as carb friendly varieties  at your local market these days. Many contain as little as 35 calories per slice and may be quite tasty.

A trick that we use is to spray the bread on both sides with either no calorie butter spray (cooking OR the refrigerated versions) and then we either pop the bread into the toaster OR in a warm non-stick skillet.  

If you use the non-stick skillet, cook the bread slowly and it will form a beautiful, crispy, golden brown crust.  Add a few slices of lean meat, a slice of cheese, lettuce and tomato - and you've got one Heavenly Diet Sandwich!  Enjoy with a cup of your favorite soup and a cup of your favorite fresh fruit for a low calorie meal that's full of nutrition and low in fat.
