    Wait! Why is this bread so high in calories? Is all US bread? The wholegrain bread I eat comes in at roughly 240 calories per 100 grams. Like most bread, baguette, flat bread, etc. how can there be so many calories in bread?

    The Wheat bread above would come out to 250 calories per 100 grams...so not really much different.

    I eat Dave's Killer Bread which is just a normal off the shelf whole grain bread...it's 244 calories per 100 grams. I find most bread to be in that neighborhood...one slice is typically 45 grams give or take with one slice (45 grams) being 110 calories.

    I don't know that the bread above is actually less calorie dense than other breads out there...it looks like the slices are probably pretty small if a serving (slice) is only 28 grams...all things being equal, it looks like it's just as calorie dense as most other breads at 100 grams.

    You like thick slice of bread?

    Typical US bread per slice are 30g more or less..

    You eating 3 to 4 slices . 🤷‍♂️

    I believe that user is using 100 grams as a point to compare, not claiming their average serving of bread is 100 grams.

    Read the print.. they are comparing per 28g.. a slice

    No, I don't believe they are. They're stating the calorie count of their usual bread per 100 grams. That is not the same thing as saying they consider 100 grams to be a serving. The 28 gram statement, I believe, came from someone else completely.

    If someone says their bread is x calories per 100 gram, we don't have enough information to conclude about how thick they like their bread sliced. Their typical serving size could be way less than that. Expressing calorie counts per 100 grams is just a quick and easy way to compare nutritional information even if one is regularly eating less or more than that amount.

    100/28= 3.57

    3.57*40=143 +/- calories per 100grams.

    Eta.. doesn't matter thickness if you comparing by weight..

    Thickness doesn't come in the equation..

    A 2" slice of bread is 100 grams in one brand..

    3" slice that is still 100 grams in another brand. All both still 100 grams of bread..

    I'm comparing the bread per 100gr.. it's still close to half the typical bread in calories..

    But the op issue seems to be what s/he puts on the bread that adds up the calories.. in addition to what type of bread being used.

    rice...............Asian staple. And in Asian countries, obesity isn't the same as many others. So carbs aren't the enemy contrary to what low carbers or keto claim.

    If you want cereal or oats you could use any of a variety of plant milks, or yoghurt.

    You could eat your egg with oatcakes, or chop it up into some bulghar wheat or cous cous with some veg and have a salad.

    647 is the NAME of the bread.

    :lol:

    The calories look like about 40 calories per 28g slice.

    ROFLMAO!

    Janejellyroll, you're not keeping up. I agree with lx1x.

    Thanks for the correction, I'm still not seeing the connection with concluding the size of the slice based on the information provided but accept that I'm missing something.

    I agree -- in some other countries it is common to have calories per 100 g on the label. I think the poster said the 647 bread is high cal because she assumed 647 was the number of cals. In fact, this bread has a lot fewer cals per 100 g than she said was typical: 143 cal vs 240.

    We know the poster wasn't assuming 100 g per slice, as she said earlier that she typically has 3 slices of bread for 260 cals, and if 100 g has 240 cals, that makes her slices a typical 28 g or so.

    Anyway, the 647 bread isn't high cal, and I don't think anyone is assuming typical slices of commercial bread are 100 g.

    Anyway, bread isn't super high cal, and if you like bread no reason not to have it with your eggs, OP. I don't like bread that much and so it's a waste of cals for me. When I have over easy eggs, I often have veg on the side or, sometimes, half an avocado--avocado is calorific, but I like the taste and added nutrients (but again I don't care about bread -- if you love it, you should eat it).

    Correcting my math -- about 36 g per slice for 260 cals.

    Eat a slice of bread if you really want it and enjoy. Cut out the nuts or oils if you need to cut calories somewhere. (unless you're trying to do keto or low low carb eating plan) Whatever you do, find a way to eat what you love or else your weight loss won't be sustainable or you'll be miserable.
  • pandagalaxypandagalaxy Member, Premium Posts: 19 Member Member, Premium Posts: 19 Member
    Like other have said, eat the bread if you enjoy it and it's a nutritional bread (low sugar, low artificial crap, ect). If you don't want to worry about figuring out numbers just up your calories per day by 100 and move on. Your weight loss may be *slightly* slower but you wont have to sacrifice as much. (if you're currently on 1200 per day, can I introduce you with the 1350 per day? It's SO much easier *disclaimer: unless you are under 5' then you should probably consult your doctor or an RD instead of MFP)

    No, I'm really comparing 100gr. But yes, a slice of 28gr is very thin.

    For variety, you can do what I did this morning. Bowl of oatmeal sprayed with a little spray butter, then a fried egg on top of the oatmeal and a tablespoon of ketchup. It may sound strange but it's delicious! :smiley:

    This. I live in Finland and I’m not sure if it’s legally mandatory, but I’ve never seen a nutritional label without info per 100g.

    OP, I agree with others to just keep the bread and figure out something else if you really need to cut the calories. If you insist on cutting the bread (which, really, is not the enemy despite some saying carbs and bread are), I’d suggest weaning yourself off slowly. Options could include buying bread that isn’t pre-sliced and using thinner slices, or cutting your bread slice in half and only eating a half a slice per morning.

    If it is on every product i expect it is a legal requirement - same as it is here in Australia
