The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    bread crust - keep or ditch?

    Do bread crusts contain any calories?

    I'm currently bulking and trying to figure out whether I should be cutting them off and saving the space for something better.

    lol, interesting question.

    ive also heard that the crust contains more nutrients. but its what ive HEARD, i dont have any proof, or reference's. for all i know it could be an old wives' tale to get their kids to eat their crust.

    My mom used to tell me when I was growing up that eating the bread crust would put hair on your chest.

    Little did I know that years later, I'd be shaving and waxing it off.

    I would not think so because the crust forms because that is the part of the bread that is exposed to the heat when baking. It is still bread just a little more "done."

    This might interest some of you.

    I copied it from http://www.foodlineweb.co.uk/FoodWeb...dec02/news.asp

    Whilst the idea that bread crusts make your hair turn curly has yet to be proved, new research claims that they may, in fact be the healthiest part of the loaf.

    The research team, from the University of Munster, discovered that the antioxidant compound pronyl-lysine actually accumulates in the bread crusts during baking as a result of the Maillard reaction between L-lysine, starch and reducing sugars.


    Pronyl-lysine has been shown to increase levels of phase II enzymes in human trials, which are thought to help protect against cancer.

    Further research is being carried out to determine whether pronyl-lysine in bread crusts may increase levels of plasma antioxidants. The research was reported in the Journal of Food Agriculture and Chemistry, and in FoodlineWeb new item ‘Bread crusts are good for you’.

    The above is the complete article from which the above was referring to. Interesting by the way

    This was taken from the article, and it also mentioned that overbrowning would harm the beneficial compound. Does that mean that toasting your bread would eliminate this beneficial compound, and what is the correct level of "browness?"

    The researchers are currently conducting animal tests to determine whether bread crust and pure pronyl-lysine actually boost antioxidant levels in plasma, but results have not yet been published.
