I agree that cutting back/eliminating bread helps lose weight
I started losing weight by cutting back my bread intake. Before I started losing weight, I ate 6+ pieces a DAY! When I cut it down to 1 per day (or 2 per two days as I prefer to have it), I lost 10kgs (22lbs) without exercising or changing anything else in my diet in a couple of months. Although I still eat bread, I've changed it to rye since white bread (which is the worst type ever IMO) feels like I'm eating air. White bread makes me feel unwell now lol

Yes bread has always been my friend, love me some hard crusty bread with a big ole smear of butter..... but now i have changed to wheat bread and only have it 1-2 times a day as well. Just starting this diet thing 325 lbs 53 yoa and litterally dieing to lose weight. Working on it......
Bread was pretty bad for my weight gain. I could easily eat 6-8+ slices a day.
I have almost eliminated it now, except for the odd restaurant meal.
I found low calorie bread a good way to reduce my intake.

Don't believe the hype. EAT MORE FISH.
If the bar ain't bendin', you're just pretendin'!
I used to love love bread but for some reason, it was mostly a lunch sandwich thing for me so 2 pieces/day, sometimes for dinner but then again, if I ate bread for dinner, it usually was my dinner (with a topping of some sort, usually brie).
I eat bread semi-regularly now and I use sprouted grain breads or bread I make myself (which again, I buy sprouted flour - I found some recipes which include beans/lentils which I plan to try). My super skinny husband though eats 4-6 pieces bread/day.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
