I love bread more than any food in the world. Bread with butter, a plain croissant, a bagel, toast, etc. For years I thought that if I could do without soda, candy, meat, fried stuff, and all other "bad" stuff, I could eat bread with abandon.
Sadly, I know that bread and my tendency to binge on it are one of the main reasons I continue to steadily gain weight. My plan as of now is to do a South Beach style higher-protein, lower-carb, plenty-of-veggies diet. I guess having a strict no-bread-ever policy is one option, at least to lose initial pounds, but how do I re-integrate it without falling horribly off the wagon and into the bakery?
