Dear Del
Generally speaking an adult is supposed to have 4-6 servings of grains/cereals per day. Your 2 slices of low-GI bread are therefore not too much. Always keep in mind that high-fibre and low-GI carbohydrates are low in fat and energy (16 kJ per gram) and that it is the fats and fatty proteins that are added to the carbs that increase the energy content (e.g. margarine, butter, peanut butter, cheese, mayonnaise, cream, etc - fat provides 37 kJ per gram).
The low-GI bread is good for slimming purposes - try using it with fat-free cottage cheese to have an even lower kJ meal.
Enjoy
