MomofSteel, you can have both bread and bananas (along with lots of other healthy things) on SBD. You just can't have them in the first two weeks.

As for reducing carbs, what we learned in the SBD book is that it's not a problem to eat carbs. What IS a problem is eating lots of simple sugars and refined flours (white flour). That causes your blood sugar to rise and then rapidly fall, leading to cravings, which has you eating and eating all day. Eating good carbs (whole grains, sweet potatoes, most fruit, bell peppers, etc.) doesn't do this to your blood sugar and there's no reason to restrict them (or count your carb grams!). Hope you consider SBD as a possible plan for you if the only reason for avoiding it is that you like bread and fruit.
