If I eliminate "all" bread from my diet will that be harmful?  I'm asking this because since I've stopped eating my Manna bread in the morning I've lost weight.  I do have one slice of Ezekial bread at supper though.  I'm thinking of giving up "all" bread figuring that if I do, I'll drop more weight but if having at least one slice of the bread is actually good for my health, I'll keep it in my diet.  I do love staying slim but not at the expense of my good health.

I Rex,

I, too, have questioned this.  I have gone for about 2 years now  with no bread.  I used to eat Eziekel  bread and Manna bread.  Are you really trying to lose a lot? or just a little?  As for me personally, I haven't felt any ill effects of no bread.  This is just my personal experience.

So what do you have for breakfast, now?  ( I started my own thread on this one.. )

Thanks SheriBerry (I love that name...brings back memories of my little girl). What I eat for breakfast now is beef & greens (kale or spinach) with a large cup of beneficial tea...that's all.  Lunch is usually a salad & beneficial fish.  Supper is that one slice of bread that I already mentioned with almond butter & fig preserves that I make myself & I usually sprinkle a few walnuts on for the crunch & omega-3 benefit. My drink for supper is a protein shake using the NAP protein powder. Between meals I usually eat fruit.

there s no health hazard skipping bread, if you so wish!
NAP s livecell is a mix of beneficial sprouts which you can add to your salads, or smoothies.

IMHO, Os have more of an emotional attachment to grains than a physical need for them, and boy, is that an attachment!!!
In my house we started the BTD by substituting our former breads with compliant breads.  As time went by, we ate less and less of them, (I think Mr. OSuzanna is a secretor) and I became aware that I felt better when I didn't eat any.  Now we don't buy any bread, and haven't for many months.
Somewhere in Dr. D's books he mentions Os don't need grains. Most of them are harmful to O-nonnies. My tennis elbow went completely away when I stopped eating oats (oatmeal, granola, etc.) and I only realized the connection after the fact.
Congrats on the weight loss and diet changes.

My experience is very similar to OSuzanna's--I went from eating bread five times a day pre-BTD to ezekiel bread, then to no bread. I'm MUCH better off without it and rarely miss it in my diet at all now. (There are occasional mornings when tea and toast is my breakfast of choice, but even that is fading away.)

Rest assured, imo as an O you can be perfectly healthy without bread of any kind. It's better for us to get our complex carbohydrates from beneficial root vegetables like turnips and sweet potatoes.

I agree with what has already been said.  You don't need it.  Many O's,  as well as a lot of us B's, have not eaten bread in years.  It can be an occasional treat if you really love it, but grains can really put the weight on O's.

Thanks again for all your input.  I feel much more reassured about my decision to eliminate bread from my diet.

I haven't eaten bread/grains for almost 10 years now.  If I ever do indulge I need to sleep, get a migraine and everywhere a joint has been injured, it starts to ache.  

I think the biggest thing to remember is whenever you may have had a grain, add a vegetable or fruit.  So if you would normally have a pita sandwich for lunch, roll your beef in a piece of lettuce.  If you normally have toast for breakfast substitute  a piece of fruit with a piece of protein.  


(too much information time...grains either constipate me or give me the runs so everything is much more stable now with no grains)

There is nothing negative about deciding to not eat bread; this is an individual choice.  

Fastors such as weight gain/loss objectives, how one's body feels after consuming bread, and other available beneficial or neutral starch/grain options to choose amongst, et al. affect this choice.
