Just what is bread??

I am on a kick to improve my health. I joined a gym and am trying to eat better. Thru my health insurance, they have this little doodad that encourages a person to become healthier and one of the questions it asked was if I eat 8-10 servings to breads a day. To say that I was in shock would be an understatement. To me bread has always been evil. It's how one gets up to 200 lbs. And now they want me to eat 8 to 10 servings a day. There is something wrong with this picture.

I did a little bit further research and discovered that I don't actually need to eat 8-10 servings. I just need to worry about getting 7 1/2 ounces of grains a day. And I do actually include some of them in my diet such as rice and pretzels. What I do need to do is increase the amount of whole grains in my diet. Hmm..well I do like brown rice and popcorn is even in that category. Suddenly it all becomes doable.
