Articles like this make me glad my meal plan lets me cut out the carbs. (: Sure, if a recipe calls for bread, I'll buy whatever looks good at Trader Joe's or Sprouts, but I don't eat it regularly anymore. I don't miss sandwiches, since the meal plan has me eating plenty of other good things!

I have been eating pumpernickel bread because I thought it was healthier.

I totally agree with the bread isle being a "full-length aisle of cellophane-wrapped confusion." They all look so tasty. So I'm reading this while I'm looking at some bread. You suggest it say whole wheat flour first. Does it matter if it says water first? Water isn't bad for you. Or does that still make it less healthy for you then the bread that says whole wheat flour first?

I eat Healthy Life 100% whole wheat bread. 2 slices of Healthy Life equals 35 calories.

There is only one bread on the list that is even sold around here.

Trying to figure out why Healthy Life Bread with only 35 calories a slice didn't make it to your list of best whole wheat bread to purchase?

Almost all of the recommended breads have ingredient lists as long as my arm. If you really want to keep natural whole grain breads in your diet, make your own! It's not as complicated as it looks or if you have no time to bake your own bread, find a natural bake house. Whole Foods Market Bakehouse breads have a wide selection of breads and they have organic ingredients and only 5 or 6 ingredients that are found in your own kitchen.

Very frustrating that I thought I was doing the right thing, whole grain rye only to read this article and find out it's a marketing gimmick. Arghhhhh
