Hey everyone, been a long time b/w post for me...

TIme also necessitates the use of bread in my diet. I've managed to cut out pasta again, but a sandwich is perfect for lunches at work?

Right now I use 'yer generic whole wheat bread.
Any other reccomendations that would be better for me AND that I could get at my local Massive-national-chain grocery store? I've bought rye a few times, and I coul live with eating that.

Portable, palatable, perfect.
Seriously - why not add monounsaturated fat instead of bread? They're tastier and more filling, too.

I just bought some low carb bread at walmart. And they have low carb tortillas. Makes low carb eating a little easier for me.

I've been making a lot of open-faced sandwiches. If you only use one piece of bread, you're in the ballpark, Zone-wise. Grains are supposed to be condiments, but practically if you keep things in relative balance, you keep your insulin relatively under control. Use whole grain, of course.

I'm wary of the "low-carb" versions of a product that is almost by definition a block of carbs, eg bread. What's in these things, how do they make it, etc. I want to give things some time before I consider ingesting these produced blobs of whatever. Anyone know of the processes involved in making this stuff?

Roger, I'm with you. If the low fat craze is any indication, watch for synthetic trash, unhealthy binders to make a sawdust bread hold together, and regular bread sliced thinner and called low carb.

My girlfriend bought this low carb bread knowing I watch carbs. The stuff tastes like *** and I had to plant a smile on while I ate it because, after all, it was very considerate of her to buy it for me. Seriously I'd rather just skip a meal than eat this stuff. I'm hungry but seldom that hungry.

Low carb bread makes me think of "low yield atomic bombs" doesnt quite make sense.

Some of my faves: Silgan Knake- a rye based big round cracker. You can find it in most supermarkets, it is inecpensive and packs serious "crunch".

Any good kosher style rye bread.

I never thought I would live to see a day in which the university cafe would have a sign which read "Atkins menus for your healthy lifestyle...."

Well, I did live to see that day but things have been twisted away from the original message.
Oh well!
