Bread that helps you get fitter, not fatter: ~ I hope people in the UK don't fall for this gimmicky product! This is NOT low-carb and "high protein" is not what you need. I used to think I needed low-carb versions of products like bread, pasta and other foods that were a part of my former life. But the longer I've been livin' la vida low-carb, the more I've realized those things are not a part of my life anymore and I'm just fine going without them.

Is this what you want to put in your body:

"Water, Wholemeal Wheat Flour, Wheat Protein,Pea Protein, Wheat Gluten, Fermented Wheat Flour, Soya Flour, Vegetable Fat ( Palm Fat And Rapeseed Oil), Sunflower Seeds, Yeast, Brown Linseed, Salt, Spirit Vinegar, Molasses, Fruit Juice, Unmodified Rice Starch, Preservative Calcium Proprionate, Emulsifiers Mono-and Diacetyl Tartaric Acid Esters Of Mono-And Diglycerides Fatty Acids And Calcium Stearoyl-2-Lactylate, Wheat Dextrose, Wheat Flour, Flour Treatment Agent Ascorbic Acid"

MANY forms of wheat, soy, vegetable oils, sugar, fruit juice...ummm, no thanks, Zak! This is supposed to be "healthy?" NOT! 2 slices are 28g carbohydrate and 30g protein with only 5g fat. They claim the protein blunts the effect of the carbohydrates being absorbed--HAHAHAHA! That's the most ridiculously hilarious thing I've heard this week. Come on people...this is NOT real food or even appropriate for human consumption. AVOID!

Oh Yes! So much mis-information out there, especially in marketing land.

Here in NZ Dunedin University has just released an article to the newpapers advocating sesame seed paste to replace cheese on sandwiches to reduce heart attacks. This is based on overseas reports. I haven't looked past the short article but this looks like shoddy reporting to me. But again how many people will take it for the gospael truth because it comes from a reliable source. Ugh!

Reduced carbs huh? It went from 16 carbs per slice to 14--not much of a reduction to me. I guess the elevated protein is good, but you would be better off eating an egg. If I really want bread that bad, I am going to eat a real piece of bread (probably sourdough). I going to enjoy it with an enormous amount of butter or preserves, and then I am going to feel guilty about it. With the cr@p listed in this link, I would have eaten some expensive, nasty tasting junk that I would have still felt guilty about. Not worth it.

Dr. Bernstein says that alleged "low carb" bread or pasta replacements usually aren't.

Sugar is the enemy; fat is my friend. The only bad fats are artificial fats.
