    Here's that pix of the Herman Brot lower carb bread mentioned earlier in this thread.

    5.4 grams in these two slices.

    So it smells a bit like a sewer, it tastes alright and that's the main thing.

    I preferred white to wholemeal with all the nuts and bolts in it, but I did start to like it a few years back. I like the HB Lower Carb bread tastes real nice.

    Whilst I like bread with some bits in I do not like Lidl rolls which are far too ‘seedy’ for me.

    Hello Bulkbiker - first time in my life I can remember being called 'hysterical' - compliment - Nah I don't believe you were of that mind then - the insanity was referring to the way almost everything we eat, including bread, is being blamed for Diabetes. If government departments can completely disagree with each other on saturated and unsaturated fats - who are you to call me hysterical? Apology sought but not expected.

    By that logic as long as you don’t test you can eat anything. Makes sense.

    I'll have a pound of Jelly babies please...Not really of course but if nothing is off limits then I'd have to ask if the said individual who could live by the "Nothing is off limits" way of eating is even a diabetic in the first place.:watching:

    Given that you have made this comment after quoting my post, I can only assume you have either simply not read or have deliberately chosen to ignore the phrase in my original post of any foods being ok to eat as long as they are “ evidenced by testing and re-testing” as “ not negatively impacting on blood sugars”

    There are certain things that type 2 diabetics should avoid. You pay lip service to the view anything is negotiable. You can do all the testing you want. Carbs in any form are not good for t2s I would further argue not good for anyone. They are not an essential nutrient. By logical extension not required for life.

    I've avoided this thread because I miss bread soooooo much - I'd pretty much given up on it altogether as it always made me spike.

    Then this morning in a rebellious mood I had two pieces of sourdough toast at breakfast after my usual morning oats. It was DELICIOUS :) Checked an hour later to see what the horrible damage was - and I was 4.9 - up from a 4.0 fasting!

    Not what I was expecting - but very happy :)

    Oh - to answer the why? Because bread is lovely :) (though usually off limits)
