I bought some bread that is 40 calorires per slice but it is very thin bread... it's not very filling either. Anyone know some better choices?

I guess you could still work with it, just fill it with good stuff that satisfies you. I would put a good amount of turkey, tomato and avocado slices. That with a piece of fruit will definitely be satisfing. But I would do the same to a good ol' 110 calorie per slice whole wheat bread...it depends on how I planned my calories for that particular day. Smile

You don't want to rely on bread (carbs) to fill you up. Like melmi said, just put more meat (protein) and veggies on your sandwich. I have the same bread, too.

I use whole wheat pita pockets made by Toufayan Bakeries. They are 150 calories per whole pocket, but I only have to use half of one to make a very healthy sized sandwich, and they have a great texture and taste.

I like Flatout Wraps for sandwiches. Also Joseph's lavash is very yummy but I have to order it from Netrition instead of picking it up at a store like the Flatout wraps.

Like Sherilyn, I also like Flatout Wraps. You can usually find them near the deli in the grocery store, at least that's where I've found them at Walmart and Albertsons.

Thanks for all the great ideas! I had forgotten about the flatout wraps, and I do love pita bread too. I didn't realize the nature's own was only 40 cals a slice. Gonna look into all these.

I eat Sandwich thins and Bagel thins. 100 calories a roll. I like eating sandwiches so by using the thins I've really cut a lot out of my diet.

i've been eating this bread by nickel's (i think it may be a more localized brand) which is 35 calories a slice. It's also about the width of your regular white bread. Problem is, it's filled with sugars and HFCS. :/ So I'm on the lookout for some better choices myself.

i went to walmart today on a mission to find bread(and this abs workout that was on clearance...lol) but for some reason my store doesn't have pita bread. Isn't that crazy. There are three other walmarts in town and several other grocery stores so I'm going to have to check around.

I am a big fan of roman meal whole wheat bread. It is 60 or 70 cals a slice depending if you buy sandwich or round top.

i love the flatout breads, although around here i can only find them at walmart or giant, which is annoying, since i shop at redner's =).

i prefer using the arnold's breads when i do use bread, although they usually aren't that "low calorie", because they are satsifying, and i find myself a lot less likely to get hungry again and eat something else.

also, sara lee. their not-low-calorie wheat bread has 70 calories per slice... the low calorie is 35, but its the thin tiny bread.

also, english muffins. pitas. using a mushroom cap.

my favorite is to only make a sandwich with one slice of bread, and then use a big leaf of lettuce as the top slice. allows me to stick a lot more lunch meat and veggies and cheese - and even go for the flavored mayo - for the same amount of calories. =)

Pita bread is usually found in the deli. Weird, I know, but check there! Smile And I second sheripickle on the La Tortilla Factory. Great tortillas and only 50 calories for the smaller "fajita" size, 80 calories for the larger "wrap" size. Smile

I bought the Natures Own Light Honey Wheat bread and I'm liking it much more than the very thin bread I had before. Maybe it's just a mental thing, but I prefer bread that is normal bread size and thickness. I looked in the deli but couldn't find any pita bread. I'm going to look at other stores this week though. I'm also going to go Fresh Market and see what they offer. I'm sure there fruit & vegetable selection will also be better than Wal-Mart. I've been trying not to shop there as much, it's so convenient though.
