Calories in Bread

Bread doesn’t contain too many calories (79 calories in a large slice), but if you eat it with every meal- you’ll significantly increase your calorie intake.

100gr. (3,5 oz) of white bread contains 266 calories while 100gr. (3,5 oz) of whole-wheat contains 247 calories.

Losing Weight

“The best way to lose weight is to cut 100-500 calories per day and be physically active 30-50 minutes” explains Dr. Alan Titchenal, a nutritionist from the University of Hawaii.

If you eat one slice of bread for breakfast, one English muffin as a snack, one slice of bread for lunch and another for dinner, you’re consuming extra 454 calories per day. That’s 3.178 calories a week.

If you want to lose weight, you need to reduce your calorie intake. If you reduce 3.178 calories every week, you’ll end up losing 1 pound every week.
