For my whole youth, parents told me that eating bread is necessary to maintain a good diet. However, I've read a lot of publications recently that seem to suggest that bread makes you fat and has other negative effects. Now I don't know whether I should continue consuming it.
While eating a lot of white bread is, indeed, bad for your health, there are plenty of healthy alternatives. In particular, I've been eating lots of european bread lately, since my local bakery sells it. I already feel much better, and it tastes even better than regular store bread since it's freshly-baked.
