Why have you cut out rice? Is it just to lower carb intake? I don't think rice is a problem for most people. Also, you could try some other grains; quinoa is very high in protein, and isn't technically a grain. It's really good too. I like polenta too, which is corn. I guess it depends if you're trying to cut out ALL grains, or just wheat/gluten.

But yeah, it's so hard not to eat bread in western culture .

Its so hard to cut it out all together though. Hense the one piece every 3 or 4 days.

i definitely have problems with white rice. brown rice i can do okay with though - but only in moderation (no more than 1/2 cup at a time). i understand what you're saying though about 'never feeling satisfied'... sometimes i have that issue too. i find butternut squash is a good tummy filler. quinoa is also excellent as cjb suggested. i haven't tried the polenta yet (but i'll add that to my list to try!)
also are you eating fruits, or any legumes/beans? it's not good to eliminate ALL carbs.

You can try my recommendation, and that's exercising. Exercising will allow to eat just about anything, provided they're eaten in moderation. I mean if bread was so bad, then how can the FDA recommend 6-7 servings of them per day. The problem is not the food themselves, but the lack of things you do to balance it.

The good thing is I'm still improving, maybe bread isn't my personal trigger?
