You’ll have more energy
Yes, bread is a carb. But repeat after us: Carbs aren’t necessarily bad for you, according to many dietitians and nutrition experts. The right kind provides long-lasting energy throughout the day, as well as a slew of other health benefits. WebMD uses this comparison: “Carbohydrates to your body are like fuel to a car. If there is no fuel, the car will not go very far. If there is high-quality fuel, the car will run more efficiently.” The trick is to ditch the refined white bread, which causes blood sugar levels to quickly skyrocket and crash, in favor of 100 percent whole wheat bread, which contains healthy carbs that digest more slowly and fill you up. That whole wheat goodness will keep the pep in your step for hours after your meal. Nutritionists want you to eat these healthy carbs.
You’ll be overall healthier
Young, old, male, or female, eating whole wheat bread has a huge range of health benefits. Scores of studies have found that whole-grain carbs can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, colon cancer, strokes, and obesity. You’ll get the most benefits from consuming at least three servings of whole grains a day, but just one daily serving alone still has the power to reduce your risk of chronic diseases.
