Which bread is best for weight loss – White, brown, or multigrain?

Breakfast is the most important meal of our day. We shouldn’t miss it. Generally, we take bread, fresh juices, or parathas for breakfast. But have you wondered, how good is your bread, whether it’s healthy or not? Let's take a look.

White bread is mostly used in every household. It is widely available but has low nutritional value. This is highly processed with zero nutritional content. It also has a high glycemic index, which in turn causes weight gain. Foods high in GI index tend to increase your blood sugar levels. White bread is also high in calories. Thus, it’s a clear No for weight loss.

Brown bread contains whole wheat flour. It is much better than white bread. Brown bread is rich in fiber, minerals, and vitamins. It has lower calories than white bread. Brown bread is more nutritional as it contains wholegrains that are bran and germ. It contains components of whole grains; it is less processed and less refined. It is low in sugar content. It contains high fibers, vitamins (vitamin B and vitamin E), and minerals (Iron, magnesium, and zinc). The whole grain part makes it perfect for weight loss. If it’s without whole grain, it is the same as that of refined flour or white bread, thus it aids in weight loss.

Multigrain bread contains a mixture of varieties of grains like oats, barley, wheat, ragi, corn, and millet. Incorporating edible seeds adds to their nutritional value. It is a highly nutritious bread owing to its fiber content. It is easily digestible. It contains an ample amount of Omega3 fatty acids (essential fatty acids) which are good for the proper functioning of the heart, lungs, blood vessels, and immune system. Its low sugar and calorie content make it optimum for cholesterol management, diabetes, and hypertension control. The fiber content keeps you full for longer and prevents you from overeating or overindulging.

Hence, if you really want to lose weight, whole-grain bread or multigrain bread is very much helpful to achieve your desired outcome. The component of wholegrain is of utmost importance for losing weight.
