  • Whenever we talk about the foods we eat, the conversation eventually turns to bread, or

  • good carbs and bad carbs.

  • So we sat down to talk with nutrition speaker and writer, J. Stanton.

  • So J., what is bread?

  • When you're looking at a bagel or a loaf of bread, what you're really looking at is a

  • little chunk of gluey indigestible, and nutritionally incomplete protein, some crumbled up pieces

  • of a multi-vitamin pill, and a giant ball of sugar.

  • That's not necessarily a bad thing because we have to have a certain amount of sugar

  • in the blood stream at all times or our brain cells die, but the flip-side of that is that

  • we don't want too much sugar in our bloodstream either because that's toxic in the long term.

  • Right. We all know too much sugar is bad, but bread is still pretty healthy, right?

  • I mean, don't our bodies know that bread is healthier than, say, candy?

  • Absolutely not, they don't. By the time we digest it, it's all the same. It's all sugar.

  • What you're doing is your substituting one form of sugar for a slightly better, camouflaged

  • version of sugar. There's this number called the glycemic index which tells you essentially,

  • "How fast is the sugar in this food absorbed?" And what you find out when you look it up

  • is that Skittles and white bread and even whole wheat bread all have about the same

  • glycemic index. You're absorbing the sugar in the bread just as fast as your absorbing

  • the sugar in the candy.

  • So then, what should we be eating instead of processed foods, like bread?

  • We should be eating whole foods and my rule of thumb for that is food does not have ingredients

  • - food is an ingredient. Ya know, meat. Ingredients: meat. Spinach. Ingredients: spinach. If it

  • comes in a box, it's probably not food. If the bacteria won't eat it, ummm, maybe you

  • ought not to. Bread is like the Casual Friday of food. It's not healthy, but it's not a

  • treat either. My advice? Stick to real food and real treats.

  • J., this has been pretty eye opening. I know am never gonna look at bread the same way

  • again.

  • If you want to learn more about J.'s thoughts on nutrition, just visit

  • Hey guys! Thanks for watching our video! We hope you liked it! We asked you, "If eating

  • white bread and sugar are exactly the same thing, which one would you rather eat?" And

  • here are some awesome responses we got. Feel free to leave your comment below. And if it's

  • your first time here, click the subscribe button above my head. We come out with videos

  • once a week on, uhh, epiphanies we hope will change your life. So, next week we are talking

  • about which way is better to eat: like a predator or a prey? So, check that out next Tuesday.

  • And hope you like it!
