whole wheat bread has FIBER, that's why it's less points on weight watchers. fiber causes it to take longer and require more calories for your body to digest it, so it doesn't immediatly turn right into sugar as soon as it hits your small intestine, like white bread. fiber has many health benifits, it absorbs fat and cholestrol, it helps you stay "regular" and keeps your colon healthy. try to pick a bread that has at least 2gm of fiber per slice.
i eat this great breakfast cereal, i get it at the regular grocery store but if you cant find it there, check the health food store. It's called "Optimum, power breakfast" it loaded with fiber and also has protien, soy, flax and blueberries and it's GOOD! even my 20 mo old loves it. check it out.
