Good 'Wich: Go for whole wheat bread or mix things up with a whole-grain wrap or pita. Choose a variety that is high in fiber -- at least 2 grams per slice -- which will help you stay satisfied longer.

Wicked 'Wich: Avoid highly refined carbs like white bread, rolls, and croissants since fiber is removed during the milling process. Also beware of wheat breads disguised as whole grain -- check the label carefully to make sure you're getting the real thing.

Quick Tip: The first ingredient on the bread label must say either whole grain or whole wheat.
