    Low GI bread

    For those of you trying to eat low GI foods, eating too much or the wrong kind of bread can be a problem. In the past, I've always recommended wheat bread, but I've made the transition to a lower GI, and in my opinion, a better tasting bread - OAT BRAN.

    Below is the approximate GI of each bread(approximate because different GI listings may tell you slightly different things)

    Whole Wheat - 68
    Oat Bran - 48

    You can find even lower GI breads, but not in your every day grocery store. I'll still recommend wheat over white of course, but this oat bran bread kicks butt. Give it a shot and I doubt you'll go back to wheat.

    isn't Oat Bran a cereal? Are you making the bread yourself or buying it in the store?

    It's not the kind where they glue oats all over the crust is it?

    I'll have to keep an eye out for it though when I go shopping next...

    No it's not glue, it's corn syrup.

    Just joking.

    Project at work consuming all of my time. I've been working on it since April, and it's now go time. It involves about 10 different company departments, so coordinating and managing everything is a tough task. I'm seeing some light at the end of the tunnel though.

    I agree....thanks for the tip gino. I'm eating 4 slices of whole wheat bread daily now (more bread than I really like to eat), so it would be worth my checking into this.

    Do you buy it at a regular grocery store say like Walmart, Kroger, etc?
    peace-

    Yeah, any regular chain grocery store with a good size bread selection should have it. There will probably be only one or two bread brands that make it though, so it could take you a minute to find.
