Shaha - yes sweet bread has alot of calories and carbs in it! You just have to look at the label on the package and go from there as to how much you can eat. Take for instance, I love hot cross buns (I'm British) - but for one of these - I think it's about 35 carbs and I shiver at what the calorie count is (probably 1/2 my day ration). So, what I try to do (I say "try" as I don't always do this) - is cut the bun in 1/2 - that way less calories - less carbs. Don't forget - other things that mount up the calories are what you put on the bread - e.g. cream cheese, butter, jam. It's all abit mind boggling sometimes when you factor all of these things into just having a slice of toast, bagel, etc. - but at least you're aware of what your putting into your body :)
What's your favourite sweet bread Shaha? Lately mine has been Panettone
for breakfast - which I discovered if I slice it right (and weigh it) - is better calorie wise/carb wise - and tastier! I put a bit of butter on it after I've toasted it lightly. Psst, I have yet to make it at home - cheaper to buy at store (and they went on sale after the holidays ).
