Hoping someone can help me with an issue. I make bread for my family from scratch, both whole wheat and white. I am on MWL plan and stay away from it for about 3 days, tops.
Then, for some reason, I break down, eat some bread and then before you know it, peanut butter and banana on bread, and then down a slippery slope. Takes me a couple of days to get back on track.
Any idea how to break the bread habit? Like I said, I'm fine for about 3 days and then all he$$ breaks loose!
Anyone else have a problem with bread?
Such a darling handle - it made me smile just to write it!
Sounds like you might have some taboos connected to bread and once you start, the 'what the hell attitude' kicks in (it's a real phenomenon) and then the pb jumps in for the ride.
At the same time, homemade white bread is like cake and has a powerful pull on your taste buds. And does your ww bread have a lot of white flour in it? If these are trigger foods for you, then why not stop making it so regularly? Show support for yourself by not making it so difficult.
Are you eating enough otherwise of whole, low fat plant foods? If hunger starts rumbling as the day goes by and there's fresh loaf of bread cooling, watch out....
I know there are several ideas here, maybe one of them will connect with you. Bread can be a problem for some, but frankly I lost all my weight - 50lbs or so - eating bread the whole time. But if there's a loaf of sourdough in the house, I tend to be more interested in it than I am of the Demi Panache with only whole wheat, flour, and water. It's just common sense not to have the cake around all the time.
Hope this somehow helps!
