Okay guys, I don't have a strict diet or anything like that. I'm 17 years old and I'm not looking to get as much muscle as fast as possible. I eat a a tonn, but I find myself eating a lot of bread aswell. like.. 8 slices a day . It's not horrible bread, its 100% whole wheat. But my point is.. is too much bread bad? I work out 5x a week in the morning. work same muscles 2x a week. etc. I know its physically not a lot.. but better food could take its place.. its just such a convenience.. it goes well with things.. sandwiches are easy. any help would be great
Thanks guys

I'm be curious about this also. I eat all natural white bread, the only thing I make sure of is that it has no high fructose corn syrup. Alwyn Cosgrove told me the only thing eating whole wheat over white might do is add one week on my life. I really like white bread. I eat four slices a day.

This is the take on whole grains from the author of the TNT diet

5. Avoid added sugar and refined grains. Primarily, this means foods that are made with sugar -- regular soda, cake, cookies -- or with flour that it isn't 100 percent whole wheat -- for instance, white bread and white pasta. Technically, these carbohydrates are allowed in the Reloading Time Zone, since their purpose is to raise insulin levels. But we highly encourage you to eat quality sources of carbohydrate. That is, carb-rich foods that are also packed with nutrients, such as 100 percent whole grain products and high-fiber beans. These are what we call Nutrient-Dense Carbohydrates.

My white bread is all natural with no refined sugars. Although it may not be as great as 100% whole wheat, it's definitely better than regular white. Interestingly when looking at labels I am surprised at how many 100% whole wheat breads are made with high fructose corn syrup.

I am not familiar with the TNT diet. Thanks for the information. I am going to try to make the switch to 100% whole wheat when I find one that I like, does not have high fructose corn syrup, and does not have wheat gluten as one of the first couple of ingredients.

Bread limits the amount of nutrients your intestines can absorb and contains little nutritional value.

why does it limit the amount of nutrients your intestines can absorb?

what do you mean by little nutritional value? I'm looking at my Nature's Own sugar free 100% whole wheat and there are 8 vitamins/minerals, protein and good complex carbs. I'm confused...

On my bulks I go through whole wheat bread fast. I usually make double decker PB and J sandwhiches. They contain a lot of B vitamins and are high in fiber.

You really need to qualify a statement like that.

I'd also be interested as to how bread does that. Its carbs after all. I eat tons of bread.

Bread is fine. We're all gonna die anyways. Why not enjoy eating some good old-fashioned Wonder with PB and Fluff? I'm gonna eat white bread tonight. Tell me how bad it is for me.

I do the same thing you do. Eat tons of whole wheat grains throughout the day. 8 slices is not much, unless you are really small. I always make sure I got protein on my bread however. Usually peanut butter, white meat, etc.

The only problem is all the fiber that whole wheat grains have. Being a guy who is trying to gain weight, all that fiber always makes me feel full.

BF - doubler decker PBJs for breakfast and lunch at work every day man! Cheap, easy, lots of cals, and tasty!

Edit- I use potato bread for my sammiches. I bought it by mistake once and it turns out its pretty delicious I think.

As long as it doesn't have gluten its ok. I declare war on gluten:indian:
We as humans have only been eating grains for a short time, evolutionary speaking.
Bread has nothing much too offer except carbs and if your Brand is good enough it might be sprinkled with some vitamins n minerals. It has no amino's or essential fattys. Plus to many grains or carbs in general cause insulin resistance or so I read...

Only if you can push 237 pounds on the prowler in exactly 4.7 seconds. Otherwise you are too slow and should just quit.

I read that on the innerweb it must be true.
