    Since starting SW I've only had bread twice in two weeks. Both times it was 1/2 a large slice of granary and both times I've been as bloated as ever after it. Has anyone else had this or am I the odd one:eek:

    I had a week where I ate bread pretty much every day and I put on 2lbs :(

    I did feel very bloated so I've cut it out this week. Hopefully it'll make a difference, but I'm guessing bread has that effect on some people and they just don't notice when they are eating whatever they want :)

    I had a single piece of bread with a fry up last weekend while I dipped off plan due to having visitors. Its the only bread I have had since I started SW and I didnt really enjoy it that much. I did feel bloaty for the rest of the night but I can more likely attribute that to the monster-truck of a hangover I was having.

    I dont miss it, so I am not going to bother with it in future.

    I've realised how much bread I was eating and mainly due to laziness. 2 slices each morning for breakfast and then 3 days a week when I was at work yet more bread. I've certainly felt better for cutting down on it.

    I can't eat bread. When I do I always have a weight gain.

    I find not eating bread lead to a good loss at the scales last week, so I'm cutting it out altogether. As well as bananas and grapes (both just too high in sugar).

    Hiya! I'm the same. The weeks where I've had bread have led to very poor weight losses or a STS, so I've cut it out completely. I do miss it though...makes lunchtimes hard sometimes! :) xx

    Am so glad I'm not the only one:)

    Zoe, that's interesting about the bananas and grapes as well. I've been eating quite a few of those so if I don't do so well at next weeks WI I'll cut down on them to see what happens.

    Sian, I've not missed bread when I've been at home but on the days I work it's been hard so I've ended up getting an M & S salad.

    Good luck Jane. I only lost a pound in my first week, but when I cut out bread, bananas and grapes I went on to lose 4lbs. It certainly worked for me...Hope you get a good result at next WI!

    I haven't really eaten bread for years as it doesn't agree with me. Miss it sometimes though.

    Forgot to buy bananas this week and was going to nip to local supermarket to get some, but don't think I'll bother now, see if it makes a difference to me too
