If you're trying to lose weight, you know that bread is one of the biggest calorie trips and hardest things to give up. And breadless, gluten free replacements are not only hard to find but also usually taste blechy (that's a word :0) So I propose this low carb bread alternative for weight loss: Joseph's pita bread, lavash and flatbread.
