Tasty weight-loss toast

March 22, 2012 at 10:47 AM 3 comments

Could a toast flavoured with ground seaweed rather than salt be the secret to weight loss?

In a study conducted at Sheffield Hallam University,  eating a breakfast of a slice of this toast made study participants feel fuller and less hungry and they ate 179 calories less in a day.

Which translates to burning more calories than doing a half hour on a treadmill.

(So if I eat nine or ten slices, that’s the same as running a marathon, right? Given I’m guessing my race wil take four to five hours… 44 days til my very first marathon, eek!)

    I agree; whole grain toast is a nice option – for everyone!

      The point of the study, though, is the replacement of salt with seaweed. I’m curious to try this bread.
