Avoiding Food In A Bakery?

February 12, 2013 - 7:58pm -- voodoochild16

Hey all,

I assume most of you guy's on this site work in a Bakery of some sort, I am just wondering if any of you who have had success in maintaining a healthy weight, how all of you avoided eating the foods we make in a Bakery?. This is a huge struggle for me. I am gaining weight and it just won't stop.. thanks in advance!.

Oh and the food I eat is obviously strudels, doughnuts, cookies, etc.

Help needed for "puffy" newbie to bread baking, who wants to be able to enjoy eating my bread

January 8, 2010 - 9:23pm -- Peggy Bjarno

I think the one thing that has driven me to trying to bake my own bread is calories. Look at it this way: bread is on the "caution" list at the very least, or maybe even the "forbidden" list, calorie-wise. (OH-MY-GOD it's CARBS! It's CALORIES!) But I do love bread, have enjoyed my buttered toast in the morning (a long lost dream) and my mayonnaise-filled tuna or chicken salad sandwiches, or BLTs. . . . it's been a while.
