Bread is a great source of fiber if you eat healthy bread. However, it can be a source of empty carbs / calories with little nutrition if you buy over-processed white bread. Choose wisely!
Remember, low carb isn't about "avoid all carbs!" It is about eating healthy carbs - and avoiding "junk food" that gives lots of carbs with no nutrition. White bread definitely falls into the junk food category.
