Breads to avoid include all 'fluffy' easy-to-eat varieties, or any bread made with refined white flour.

Most Nutritious Types of Bread

The healthiest types of bread is made from wholegrain or whole wheat flour. Wholegrains, as well as foods made from them, consist of the entire grain seed, including the bran, the germ, and the endosperm. In the grain-refining process - used to produce regular white bread - most of the bran and some of the germ is removed, resulting in the loss of dietary fiber (also known as cereal fiber), vitamins, minerals, lignans, phytoestrogens, phenolic compounds, and phytic acid.

Weight Control, Exercise and Nutrition

Some people who want to lose weight make the mistake of focusing exclusively on calorie-intake and counting calories. Although keeping track of energy intake is vital, energy expenditure is also important. So too is diet nutrition, because when we maintain a healthy body and metabolism, we burn calories faster. In short, if you want to lose weight, make sure you eat a healthy diet in order to obtain all your necessary nutrients.
