For the fourth week of my new diet, I decided to cut out bread. According to nutritionist Rick Rogers, this is usually the hardest food for people to remove from their diet.
I don’t think this will be a difficult change for me.
With the exception of going out to eat and weekend brunches, I don’t normally eat bread. As long as I can have my cheat day (and French toast!), I’ll adjust to this change easily.
One thing that was hard about this is the bread baskets when eating out. Though I don’t eat out that often, one bread basket is enough to break my resolve.
Also, Rick’s suggestion was to switch out bread in sandwiches for lettuce wraps. Now, I don’t eat sandwiches very often, but I’ve tried some lettuce wraps, and they’re quite good. You can even find them at some restaurants. They’re definitely worth a try!
