Dear Rentia
Any food when eaten in excess has the potential to cause weight gain. If you eat the 5 slices of Albany fruit and muesli bread and this increases your daily energy intake to above the normal level (6300 kJ if you want to lose weight?), then it will make you gain weight. It also depends on what else you are eating during the day and how much energy the other foods provide. You surely don't mean that you are only going to eat 5 slices of bread and that this is going to be your entire food intake for the whole day?? if so, please don't ruin your health as this is a very unbalanced way of eating. Rather use an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
