Our expert says:
Rye bread, esp 100% rye bread, does not contain any wheat flour and has a low glycaemic index (GI), while white, brown and wholewheat wheat breads have a high-GI. Low-GI foods help you to keep your insulin and blood glucose levels steadier and thus promote weightloss. If you are not allergic to wheat there is not reason why you need to cut out bread, but it is a good idea to eat low-GI breads like 100% rye bread. Carbohydrates like bread have a low energy content (16 kJ/gram), and it is the fat we add to bread and other carbs that causes weight gain. Fat contains 37 kJ per gram!
