I’ll admit it; carbs are my absolute downfall! Paired with peanut butter, topped with an egg, making a delicious sandwich… I love bread! Unfortunately, a lot of my faves are really high calorie; even regular sandwich bread takes up way too much of my daily calorie allowance!
Well, this is where Arnold’s Bakery Light Breads (and Sandwich Thins) come into play. I tried the Oatmeal Light Bread, and it’s delicious! Actually, it was so good that I ate about half the loaf plain as a snack–it really helped to fill me up! The best part? One slice is only 40 calories; most breads are around 100 per slice.
“After the lengthy holiday period of overindulging, it’s no surprise that weight loss is once again amongst the most popular of New Year’s resolutions. Arnold is pleased to introduce the I â™¥ Bread Diet, a program designed to help dieters lower caloric intake without depriving themselves. The plan is easy: simply swap out your traditional bakery products in exchange for great-tasting Arnold Sandwich Thinsâ„¢ and Arnold Bakery LightÂ® Breads, and you can cut up to 280 calories daily – almost 15% of your recommended calorie intake.*
In contrast to many popular dieting tendencies to cut carbohydrates with hopes of achieving quick weight loss success, I â™¥ Bread Diet aims to educate consumers in the benefits of macronutrients necessary for long-term weight loss. Macronutrients, such as carbohydrates, supply energy and are needed in relatively large quantities to maintain healthy body functions. With many diet options to choose from and the sacrifices associated with trimming down, Arnoldâ€™s I â™¥ Bread program incorporates a main component of the food pyramid â€“ healthy whole grains. Now dieters can eat healthily without denying themselves and cut calories without cutting taste. It’s possible to have your bread and eat it, too.
Award-winning registered dietitian Christine Palumbo advocates whole grains as part of a healthy diet. “In finding the perfect diet for you, it’s important to consider a meal plan that you can live with,” said Christine. “Whole grains are essential in providing healthy nutrition, which many fad diets lack today.” Whole grain foods provide the nutritional benefits of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants, and can reduce risk of some chronic diseases.
