This is extremely dangerous to suggest for a bread and water only fast. If this is the ONLY nutrition someone is getting, they can become very ill eating only over processed cheap white bread.
Those who do serious bread and water fasts, typically choose something like Ezekiel bread, which is very rich in protein and whole grains: allrecipes.com/recipe/ezekiel-bread-i/
Who is to say that the person is doing this more than a day or two? Please.
People need to know their own limitations and health risks. Who is to say that other options aren't there?
Those who do serious athletics choose different food, etc than those who merely want to run a mile or two a day. The 1-2'er doesn't need half the GNC store like the Olympic dreamer does.
What constitutes a serious fast? That bread is expensive... ~30 bucks for 24 oz. Can't see that being a very cheap fast if truly serious in length.
Some of us can only afford "cheap, white bread", btw. Especially in comparison with that meal-in-a-slice price.
Anyone who starts a "serious" fast without understanding what they're doing probably needs to rethink certain things anyway. As for me, I'll keep eating cheap white bread because paying 30+ for 24oz is on par with oxygen deprivation at birth.
