Eating Bread is good for you... right? Well, sometimes. Eating whole grain bread is good for you, giving you lots of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. But white bread is a whole different story — it's just plain unhealthy, among other things! If you're going to be eating bread, keep reading! Here are 8 very good reasons to stop eating white bread, and make the switch to eating whole grain bread instead!

1. It's Tasteless

Let's face it: white bread is just plain bland.

It has no real flavor, which is why so many people like it.

While it doesn't conflict with the savory taste of your meat or humble peanut butter, it sure doesn't enhance it either, the way a whole grain bread will.

2. It Won't Keep You Full

White bread doesn't contain as many parts of the grain as whole-grain does, so it doesn't have the fiber, which means when you're eating white bread, you'll be hungry again, and soon. If you're dieting, make the switch to wholesome, healthy whole-grain bread and stay fuller, longer!

3. It Contain Loads of Nasty Chemicals

If you knew how white bread was made, you'd never eat it again.

Most shocking to me is that it's made with heavily processed, bleached flour.

Bleach, as in BLEACH.

Not something I want to eat, and not something I want my kids to eat!2

4. It Lacks Most Nutrients

As you can imagine, stripping away two of the three parts of the grain and then bleaching the flour that's made with it is going to leech most of the nutrients out of the bread, about 30 nutrients in total.

And the bread industry only put a handful of them back in!

5. It Can Contribute to Developing Diabetes

Recent studies have shown that people who eat white bread (and other processed foods) rather than whole-grain bread have a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
