Nutritionist Debunks A Prevailing Misconception: Bread Does Not Make You Fat

September 28, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
An Australian nutritionist says she can find no evidence in large population studies that bread on its own contributes to weight gain. In fact, says Sharon Natoli, studies show that people who eat a lot of whole grain bread – rich in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium and iron – are less likely to be overweight or gain weight over time. Unfortunately, she notes, many women in Australia believe bread does make you fat. A study, sponsored by Bakers Delight bakery, of more than 1,000 women between 25 and 65 found that 43 percent avoid eating bread when trying to lose weight, 20 percent feel guilty when they eat bread, and more than half find the healthy bread category overwhelming and confusing.
