wholegrain bread

Postby trainhardeveryday » Wed Dec 30, 2015 10:02 am

Hey, so basically I have a question about wholegrain bread. I workout six days a week and I focus on resistance training mainly (I am a twenty year old female). Is it OK to eat four slices of wholegrain bread a day? The one I buy has 59 calories and 10g carbs per slice. I don't normally eat this daily however I just wanted to ask whether it would be too much to eat four slices on two consecutive days (so eight slices in all) Would this lead to an excess of carbs? Today my diet consisted of light yogurt, some fibre cereal with skimmed milk and grilled salmon with veg after my workout. Thanks!

No you wouldn't have an excess of carbs unless you indulged heavily on carbs from other things as well.

Since I moved to Berlin I've started eating "Protein bread" that they seel in regular supermarkets, and I think it's a relly good choice to have bread whilst cutting on the extra carbs and adding some protein instead. You can see the stats here: http://fddb.info/db/de/lebensmittel/net ... index.html

I don't know if something like this is available easily where you are, but I believe you can also but something like this online (it wouldn't be as cheap in the supermarket, but might still be worth the extra money).

No food choices are irrelevant (Unless you care about health)
You should eat for your macros and calories if your goal is just body composition. So you can eat all the bread you want, but they have to fit your protein, fats and carbohydrates. You can actually read more about IIFYM here, reviewyu.com/what-does-iifym-mean/
