Saving money on airfare is an art.

We’ve discussed when to book Thanksgiving travel, which destinations get more expensive as you procrastinate, and which US airports have the cheapest flights.

Does Bread Cause Stomach Fat?

The simple response is it depends on which type of bread.

Avoid the breads that contain white flour, refined flour, enriched flour, enriched wheat flour, enriched bleached flour and wheat flour. There are more, but these are the big ones you need to look out for.

Why do you need to avoid these?

Because it is really just processed sugar. When these ingredients are used you also don’t normally see a good fiber amount, which means you have nothing to help slow down the rush of sugar into your blood and the spike in insulin levels.

This leads to fat storage and more importantly belly fat storage.

So what bread can you eat to avoid belly fat storage?

Look for 100% whole grain bread or sprouted grain bread. Both are excellent choices because they contain more of the good stuff that gets stripped out with the other breads.

When you get more of the entire grain you get a higher fiber level and a heartier grain, this leads to a slower rise in blood sugars and a lower insulin response.

The result:  Less calories stored as belly fat.
