– Bread is an excellent source of complex (slow assimilation) sugars. Of course the best bread is made from organic whole grain flour, but ordinary bread is also beneficial.
– Contrary to popular belief, eating bread does not cause weight gain. Instead, bread helps you go without food for longer periods, without severe drops in blood sugar levels. A slice or two of bread for breakfast will help see you through to lunch, and prevent those 11 a.m. munchies.
– Not recommended for persons suffering from abdominal disorders or gastrointestinal ulcers. Diabetics should eat only moderate amounts of bread.
