How Many Calories in Bread Facts

It is interesting to note that white bread contains the same calories as wholemeal or bread that contains grain. It is a fact that bread containing whole grains is better for you and contains fibre that helps you to feel fuller longer.

It is also a fact that western diets are the main cause of bowel cancer. One in every three males will die of bowel cancer. This then is a good reason to eat wholemeal or bread that contains grains more than white bread.

Most dieticians also believe that a person should only eat 2 slices of bread maximum daily. A slice of bread does contain at least 70 calories, so if you must have bread make sure you eat the healthier option.
