A mum who struggled with her weight all her life has shed nine stone to get her dream figure — by eating bread. She lost almost half her body weight by eating slice after slice of wholemeal bread. Jo Chamberlain, 53 said, “Every diet I read frowned on bread, but I couldn’t understand why. I figured that if people can survive on diets of cabbage soup or carrot juice, then bread deserved a try. A wholemeal loaf is low in calories, full of fibre and contains protein and vitamins.” She added, “The best thing was being able to track my calories — one slice has exactly 88. With fillings and spreads, I was probably sticking to under 1,200 a day.” As reported in The Sun, 4 August 2013, p34.
