substitute for bread

I am finding that I eat a large amount of bread, being a batchelor, as well as run a hectic life style with meetings over the meal hour, invariably I will hit the bread bin. I do not exercise, other than walks two or three times per week. I am putting the weight on very fast around my stomach. I am almost certain that the problem lies with my bread consumption, WHAT can I use in place of bread and if I eat too much it is not going to add on extra weight round my middle.

Many thanks.

Dear D
It is probably not the bread itself that is causing the weight gain but what you eat with the bread (spreads, fatty fillings, etc) and a lack of exercise. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). You will see that you can still eat bread but that the foods you combine with it need to be low in fat.
