I have a loaf cooling on the counter right now. I couldn’t wait to take a piece of it so I hacked a piece off after 5 minutes and tasted it. I don’t get it, it’s the closest thing to real bread but does’t have any wheat in it! How can the crust taste so good?! I’m on a low carb diet so I have suffered through all sorts of weird tasting bread. This one is chewy, with nooks and crannies for sauces and butter. Mine came out purple, but I think it’s a lovely color. I used the bulk psyllium husk powder at my local health food store.
Drinking water helps your kidneys flush out excess blood sugar through your urine. One study found that people who drank more water had a lower risk of developing hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Can’t seem to drink enough? If water is just too plain for your taste buds, add slices of citrus, or sip on a flavored seltzer or herbal tea throughout the day to hit your hydration quota.
Overweight individuals with metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes are likely to see improvements in the clinical markers of disease risk with a well-formulated very-low-carbohydrate diet. Glucose control improves due to less glucose introduction and improved insulin sensitivity. In addition to reducing weight, especially truncal obesity and insulin resistance, low-carb diets also may help improve blood pressure, blood glucose regulation, triglycerides, and HDL cholesterol levels. However, LDL cholesterol may increase on this diet.

If you are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, the goal of treatment will be to reduce your risk of developing further health complications. Your doctor will recommend lifestyle changes that may include losing between 7 and 10 percent of your current weight and getting at least 30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise five to seven days a week. They may also suggest that you quit smoking.
Metabolic syndrome is a collection of heart disease risk factors that increase your chance of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. The condition is also known by other names including Syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, and dysmetabolic syndrome. According to a national health survey, more than 1 in 5 Americans has metabolic syndrome. The number of people with metabolic syndrome increases with age, affecting more than 40% of people in their 60s and 70s.
Ketones may also have effects in neurons beyond their use as an energy source. Preliminary work shows ketones can affect neurotransmitter release, reduce inflammation in the brain and reduce damage caused by oxidative stress8. Whilst the strength of the clinical evidence supporting the use of ketosis varies according to the condition, future work should look to explore the efficacy and underlying mechanisms further. Ketosis (by diet or by exogenous ketones) could offer an intervention that has good efficacy, but without the side effects profile of many drugs currently in use. It should be noted that the use of ketogenic diet or exogenous ketones in the conditions discussed below is still classified as ‘experimental’ in the most part and so individuals should not their alter medication or diet without full medical supervision.  

Hi James, Thank you for sharing. Most likely this wasn’t fully cooked if it stuck to the parchment paper, as I never have to grease it, but I did add a note to the post that you could do that to be on the safe side. I think the previous recipe and post were not clear enough on how to make sure that it’s done, so I updated them and hope that will help. I’d love to know if that made a difference if you try it again. But, this bread is more similar to fluffy pre-sliced white bread than a crusty bread, so I still would not expect a crust. If you are looking for a crusty bread, try this almond flour bread instead.
Not getting enough sleep will raise your blood sugar…and most Americans don’t get enough sleep. But you have to. This is medicine for your diabetes, so you need to do what “Doctor” Wil tells you. And you need to do two things to get a good night’s sleep. First, you need to budget enough time. That means eight hours, for most folks. The second thing you need to do is purify your bedroom—and that means getting all the electronic gadgets out. Your bedroom is a place to sleep. It does not need a TV. It does not need a computer. It does not need a cell phone.
Recurrent migraines are highly prevalent and sometimes debilitating. They manifest as throbbing, one-sided headaches and can also involve visual disturbances (aura). Many of the processes involved in migraine are shared with those implicated in epilepsy, especially an abnormally high glutamate (excitatory) activity. In fact, medical professionals sometimes prescribe anti seizure medications that block glutamate activity to migraine patients. The ketogenic diet has been associated with improved migraine control both anecdotally and in a small number of case studies 74 ,75 ,76 ,77. Researchers are currently undertaking further investigations to confirm if the ketogenic diet or exogenous ketones are viable and effective treatment options for migraine patients.  
I was recently diagnosed with diabetes which I had had uncontrolled for an estimated seven years. I have done a lot of research and while there is a lot of diabetes information available, little was helpful for whatever reasons – too simplistic in nature, didn’t answer hard hitting questions, or didn’t apply forward thinking scenarios. This article is one of the best I have read because it is both clear and concise and givens you all of your essential important information in a single place – something everyone needs. Even after all of my research, I still learned a couple new things reading this article. Excellent reference.
Would highly recommend listening to Tim Noakes and his trail in Cape Town – he was pretty much the trigger for me to switch to LCHF and now I am starting to educate myself on what I need to follow a path that works for me. The information on Verta is giving me more information to enable me to ask my Dr for what I want – I know this will be an uphill battle and this information will help me avoid getting railroaded into the so called norms. It also give the Dr a way out because then I am asking him to help me go down a certain path that he is not responsible for recommending if it bucks the system.
Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection cant cure. I’ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. i read people’s testimonies online on how they were cured of herpes, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr. Obor herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with HIV for the past 7 years but Dr. Obor cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he cast spell to restore broken marriages and he cast good luck spells to prosper and excel in life. Contact Dr. Obor on: hsvcuretemple@gmail.com
If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin.

If someone has already had a heart attack, their LDL ("bad") cholesterol should be reduced below 70mg/dl. A person who has diabetes has a heart attack risk equivalent to that of someone who has already one and so should be treated in the same way. If you have metabolic syndrome, a detailed discussion about lipid therapy is needed between you and your doctor, as each individual is unique.
Maya, this is a beautiful looking bread. I’m going to try it, but before I do, I’d like to know if you have ever tried doubling the recipe. It seems that it would work–based on the fact that my almond flour bread that I have made for years uses 3 1/4 cups flour, and turns out pretty well. (I’m pretty content with my recipe, but admit that yours looks better due to the whiteness and it appears to have more air bubbles, indicating it’s probably lighter.) If I don’t hear from you, I’ll probably go ahead and double it, and use a 9×5 pan–wish me luck.
I made this today. I did not have almond flour so I took some slivered almonds and made flour from them in my nutribullet. This turned out fabulous. Only a pinch of salt is necessary. The variations are endless! I don’t do Keto but I will definitely be making this often for everything!! This is a great save if you are out of bread! Thanks so much for this recipe! It is DELISH!
In skeletal muscle, oxidative capacity and mitochondrial content are related to fiber type. Compared to type II fibers, type I fibers have larger mitochondria [370] with greater oxidative enzyme content [371]. While fiber type is plastic, particularly in response to endurance exercise, transformation from oxidative, slow-twitch fibers (type I) to glycolytic, fast-twitch fibers (type II) is unlikely to occur [372, 373]. Type II fibers, however, can shift in humans from highly glycolytic (type IIx) to more oxidative (type IIa) [373]. Compared to type IIx fibers, type IIa fibers have greater citrate synthase activity, indicating greater mitochondrial content [374]. The relevance of oxidative capacity and fiber type to oxidative stress has been demonstrated by greater mitochondrial respiration with less H2O2 production in permeabilized fibers from rat muscle consisting primarily of type I or IIa fibers versus type IIb fibers [375]. Although muscle fiber-type transformation has been well characterized in response to exercise, this appears to not be the case for ketogenic diets. However, in rats, β-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (β-HAD) has been shown to increase most prominently in glycolytic, type IIb fibers following 4 weeks of a ketogenic diet (% energy: 70 fat, 6 carbohydrate, and 24 protein) [165], suggesting transition of these fibers towards type IIa fibers and, in turn, indicating potential for nutritional ketosis to promote a more oxidative muscle fiber composition.

I went to buy Xanthan gum at a store in my little town and it was like $17! I wasn’t paying that much, so I made it without but I will be ordering some online. I followed your directions exactly (minus Xanthan) and used Swerve for the sweetener. I couldn’t wait for it to cool so I had a piece right after it came out of the oven, it was delicious! I find it a tad sweet for bread, but that’s ok I’ll just cut back on the sweetener if I want to eat it for a sandwich..all sweeteners are a little different. It had a beautiful crust on it and was a tiny bit crumbly, almost reminds me more of muffin texture, I’m thinking maybe the Xanthan will give it more of a chewy bread texture?

Thanks for starting a new recipe since the comments were getting out of hand on the sub rolls post 🙂 Can you say what size loaf pan you used for this. I have tried the recipe twice in a loaf pan of 2 very different sizes, and they turned out radically different. I think there is a sweet spot which you obviously found with yours. I’d like to find it for mine, too. Thanks for the great bread recipe. It’s one of the only recipes I know by heart because it is so elegantly simple.
Fill half your plate with non-starchy vegetables. Split the other half in two between protein and whole-food carbs such as brown rice, quinoa, beans, legumes, or ancient grains such as amaranth, millet, or farro. These complex carbohydrates have more fiber and nutrients than processed carbs such as white rice, bread, and pasta, and the fiber helps control blood sugar levels.

In a study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition, researchers followed the diets of more than 3,000 adults who didn't have type 2 diabetes for more than four years. They discovered that people with the highest consumption of legumes—especially lentils—had the lowest risk of diabetes. Replacing half a serving of eggs, bread, rice, or baked potato with legumes daily also was associated with lower risk of diabetes incidence. All legumes, which includes lentils and all types of beans, are high in fiber and a good source of protein.

As with other sources of oxidative stress, mtROS can damage enzymes and cell membranes and subsequently facilitate the pathogenesis of chronic disease [41]. Oxidative damage to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is of particular concern because of its proximity to the electron transport chain (mtETC). Furthermore, compared to nuclear DNA, mtDNA is more prone to oxidative damage and is not repaired as effectively [42–45], although this has been debated based on more recent evidence [46–50]. Unrepaired mtDNA damage leads to mitochondrial dysfunction, which is implicated in the pathogenesis of a variety of chronic diseases [51] and associated with shorter lifespan [52]. Therefore, while moderate levels of mtROS have important roles in signaling and health, protection against excessive levels is also important.


I just made this keto bread, and it is amazing! It’s better than most bread I’ve tasted! I made mine with bacon, American cheese, Brie, and Camembert (because I wanted to be extra). If you use bacon, cook it to how you normally like it in a seperate pan, as the bacon doesn’t cook much extra while baking. I think I used a little too much butter, but, oh boy, was it nice and moist!
I love this recipe! Thanks for sharing, my 1st batch came out awesome, my 2nd batch, like others have described came out a bit dry and started breaking apart. So I added about a tablespoon of hot water at a time till I got the texture that I wanted and it didnt fall apart after I added a bit more water. This dough texture reminds me a lot of corn dough that is used to make tamales. So if you've made tamales this might be easy for you to make. I also took another user's advise and used a corn tortilla press, that made spreading it an easy. Definitely a redo. Already made 2 batches one with chorizo and egg the other with pepperoni, marinara and cheese and the kids love them!
I’m a little late to comment but I had to say how amazing this bread tastes. It has a chewy crust and light a fluffy inside. I’ve been keto for over two years and trust me I’ve tried every bread recipe out there. My husband and two kids, 10 and 7 years old, are also full keto and it’s unanimous that this was their favorite. I made this recipe adding 1/2 more of all the ingredients and ended up with a nice sized loaf. Thank you. Will definitely keep trying all your recipes. You certainly hit this one out of the park.
The BBB, largely formed by the brain capillary endothelial cells, provides a protective barrier between the systemic blood and the extracellular environment of the CNS. Passage of FAs from the blood to the brain may occur either by diffusion or by proteins that facilitate their transport. Studies indicate that FATP-1 and FATP-4 are the predominant FA transport proteins expressed in the BBB based on human and mouse expression studies (Mitchell et al., 2011).

For a given quantity of fuel, the maximum amount of work that can be obtained from that fuel in a closed system is called ‘the Gibbs free energy’ (G). This takes into account the inherent ‘heat’ (combustion enthalpy (H)) and a property called entropy (a measure of tendency towards ‘disorder’ (S). The change in Gibbs free energy (∆G) is related to the change in combustion enthalpy (∆H), change in entropy (∆S) and the temperature (T):

If you are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, the goal of treatment will be to reduce your risk of developing further health complications. Your doctor will recommend lifestyle changes that may include losing between 7 and 10 percent of your current weight and getting at least 30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise five to seven days a week. They may also suggest that you quit smoking.

Preparing a keto breakfast is no different than preparing any other meal. Simply focus on your macros, then fill in those macros with nutrient-dense foods. For example, if you know you’re sticking to 70% fats, 25% protein, and 5% carbs, you know you need a protein source, a low carb vegetable, and a fat source, either for sauteing or by preparing a sauce.
Appetite regulation: One of the first things people notice when they’re in ketosis is that they’re no longer hungry all the time. In fact, research has shown that being in ketosis suppresses appetite. One study looked at people who lost weight by following a ketogenic diet for eight weeks and then reintroduced small amounts of carbs. The researchers reported that the levels of ghrelin (the “hunger hormone”) were suppressed in those who remained in ketosis, whereas those who were no longer in ketosis had higher ghrelin levels.
I waited awhile to try this, certain it would be blah but decided to give it a go. I did add a pinch of salt and I used Brummel and brown butter, made with yogurt, as it lowered the fat and calories. toasted and spread some sugar free strawberry preserves. really good! texture took a bit to get used to but so excited to be able to eat bread! not on keto but recently diagnosed as diabetic so bread is a nono bc of all the carbs.
