You don't really need to give up bread if you really like it - carbs are not the enemy. I do suggest that you stick with whole grain breads instead of white or french.
Then make your own sandwiches rather than buying them out so that you're not eating 'half a sandwich'. I'd also recommend using wholegrain bread as it's more filling than white. Buy uncut loaves so that you can slice it thinly or try wholemeal pittas ... they're pretty lightweight. And fill your sandwiches with lots more lean proteins, salads etc so that they're more satisfying.
I am with you on this one. But unfortunately I am one of those people who have to ration my bread consumption or I WILL NOT lose weight.
I suggest high fiber grain breads or sourdough (it is acidic and that somehow makes a difference with your sugar levels). They also make low carb wheat tortilla's (Wal-Mart has them). They are delicious and they don't turn rubbery if microwaved. Publix also has a different brand and they have plain or wheat - both are good but the wheat is better tasting.
You can also make your own muffins and stuff at home to monitor your carb intake while increasing your protien/fiber intake.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
