Will Eating Bread Make You Fat?

The answer is “yes” and “no”! But it’s more on the type of bread – not bread by itself.

Yes, you’ll get fat if you keep on eating white bread, or bread made from enriched flour.

If you eat whole wheat bread, or bread made from true whole grains, you’ll be a lot healthier. This is because the fiber from whole grain such as wheat helps in digestion. Because of its fiber content, bread made from wheat and/or whole grains also makes you feel full longer.
