  • “I think that bread makes me sate faster and keeps me this way for a long time. That’s why I don’t give up on it.”
What’s the truth behind this? If you happen to weigh more than you think is normal and you really want to do something about it, you might need to slow down. One of the things that may help you is reducing the amount of bread you take. Let’s not forget that it’s a caloric product, after all. Of course, this applies only for people who are way above the normal weight and really need to find a solution to their problem. This means that for all the rest it’s OK to have some bread from time to time, but always in moderate proportions. “Moderation is the secret of survival”, a great astrologer once said.
  • “I should eat gluten-free bread, because it’s healthier.”

Yes, they are pretty delicious! But in terms of healthiness, thought, they are not much different from the normal white or whole-wheat breads that we know. The only thing is that they do not contain gluten. gluten free bread Alright, but let’s think about it! Gluten is a protein that may, indeed, cause some troubles. Today you will often find lots of ‘internet experts’ who talk about celiac disease, toxic gluten and “leaky gut”. Maybe all of these people would recommend going on a strict gluten-free diet. However, what they might not know is that it’s not necessarily for everyone! This is why you should better consult with a specialist, if you are suspecting that something is going on in your body.

Well… Of course, there is such a thing as ‘split nutrition’. In fact, many people today tend to follow such an eating lifestyle, but again, it is not necessary for everybody. So, what specialists say is that the combination of meat and wheat products like bread wouldn’t do much harm to the digestive tract. In general, it’s the enzymes of the pancreas that do all the work (digestion). This way they all work together for the bread processing (amylase) and meat processing (trypsin and lipase) without interfering with each other’s functions. Does is seem a bit clearer now? For sure!
