I'm really confused about bread. I understand that i should stay away from WHITE bread, yet using the CalorieKing website, white bread has less carbs than whole wheat bread. Am i missing something?

Large 1.1oz Slice White Bread = 15.2g carbs:
CalorieKing - Calorie Counter - Calories in Breads: White Bread

Slice Whole Wheat Bread = 20g carbs:
CalorieKing - Calorie Counter - Calories in Pepperidge Farm, Breads: 100% Natural, 100% Whole Wheat

There wasn't a size listed for the whole wheat slice, but i took the carb readings from the largest slice of white available. Probably best to just avoid bread i think.

This is turning into major culture shock. Almost everything i was eating prior to getting diagnosed was killing me. Nice! Reality is a smack in the face.
Thanks for that explanation Pam. Very helpful indeed. I hope there's not going to be a test on this stuff any time soon?! :)
