Ive been doing quite a bit of training this year (want to finish some Olympic length triathlons). 3 Bike rides, 3 runs, 3 swim sessions, and 2 sessions in the gym. I couldn't figure out why i am not getting cut like i used to 3-4 years ago (i am 23 and i got a little pudgy with school/work). My favorite snack is a peanut butter and honey sandwich with some nice whole grain bread (the kind of bread that hurts your teeth biting into the grains ). I only cut bread out of my diet recently (still eat rice, potatoes, oatmeal, steel cut oats, nuts, etc) and then within a couple of weeks i could see my abs again. Cutting out bread was the only thing i really changed in my diet. Does bread really affect your body fat percentage that much?
