Further indicating that ketones influence mtROS production through alteration of electron transport, treatment of rat hippocampal slices with BHB + ACA (1 mM each) prevented the increase in mtROS and mitigated the decrease in ATP production that otherwise result from inhibition of mtETC complex I with rotenone [111]. In mitochondria isolated from the brains of mice injected with BHB, although inhibition of complex I with rotenone and 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium increased rather than decreased mtROS production, the BHB treatment prevented the decrease in O2 consumption caused by inhibition of complex I, and this occurred independently of uncoupling [112]. Consistent with the results from hippocampal brain slices, the BHB treatment also mitigated the decrease in ATP production caused by complex I inhibition [112]. These effects were prevented by inhibition of complex II with 3-nitropropionic acid or malonate, indicating that BHB primarily influences mitochondrial respiration at complex II [112], which is consistent with ketolysis increasing formation of succinate and FADH2. However, in mutated cells prone to complex I disassembly and an associated severe decrease in complex I activity, treatment with BHB + ACA (5 mM each) increased both the assembly and activity of complex I [113], indicating that ketones somehow promote repair of complex I damage and may therefore influence mitochondrial respiration at more than one site.
In addition to eating small meals at night, it's best to limit dishes piled high with pasta, rice, sugar, and other carbs. “When you focus on whole-food carbs spread throughout the day, the less pressure there's going to be on your pancreas to constantly chug out insulin,” Wright says. You want your blood sugar to roll like hills over the course of the day rather than spike like mountain peaks and plummet to valleys, she adds.
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of metabolic risk factors that come together in a single individual. These metabolic factors include insulin resistance, hypertension (high blood pressure), cholesterol abnormalities, and an increased risk for blood clotting. Affected individuals are most often overweight or obese. An association between certain metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disease has been known since the 1940s.

Hi Danielle, The bread will not rise without the baking powder, but you could try it if you don’t mind that. Some people make homemade baking powder with baking soda, cream of tartar, and arrowroot powder. But, arrowroot is still a very small amount of starch. Divided among the slices, it’s actually fewer carbs than some of the other ingredients (e.g. almond flour has a small amount of carbs also).
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is caused by death of neurons in a region of the brain called the ‘substantia nigra.’ As well as loss of neurons, those that survive accumulate misfolded proteins called “Lewy Bodies,” exhibit increased inflammation and impaired mitochondrial function. PD is most common in individuals over the age of 60 and is primarily characterised by poor control of movement (shaking, rigidity etc). Neuronal death leads to decreased levels of a neurotransmitter called dopamine, which is a key factor in the deterioration of motor function. Current treatments for PD centre on replacing dopamine using a drug called L-DOPA, which is a precursor to dopamine. This drug treats the symptoms of PD but not the underlying cause. 

Thank you for this bread. Inspired by your picture on the MCT pesto, I used this amazing bread recipe last night and shaped into a baguette. The garlic toast was phenomenal and brought tears to my eyes it was so good. The kids enjoyed it too! Now that’s a tough crowd to please, but I’m taking baby steps with them and it seems to be working!! Thanks again so very very very much!!

Prediabetes: When blood glucose (also called blood sugar) levels are higher than normal and not yet high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes. That’s an A1C of 5.7 percent to 6.4 percent (a way to estimate your 3-month average blood sugar reading), a fasting blood glucose level of 100 to 125 mg/dl, or an OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test) two hour blood glucose of 140 to 199 mg/dl.


Fanatic? Someone with T2D, a disease usually claimed to be progressive and a never ending stream of problems and medications, was REVERSED. That’s something to shout from the rooftops. The drop in medication use alone, but the big pharma companies would prefer that people’s stories of reversing (well, putting it into remission) T2D get called fanatical instead of insightful.
The reason a starving person can live for 40-60 days is precisely because we can turn fat into ketones and convert ketones into substrate for the Krebs Cycle in the mitochondria of our neurons. In fact, the more fat you have on your body, the longer you can survive.  As an example of this, you may want to read this remarkable case report of a 382 day medically supervised fast (with only water and electrolytes)!  If we had to rely on glucose, we’d die in a few days.  If we could only rely on protein, we’d live a few more days but become completely debilitated with muscle wasting.
I’m following the ketogenic diet and I find it very easy, pleasant and varied. I can even say that my diet today is more varied than the previous one. I do not intend to leave this diet and I cannot really see why. My initial focus was not to lose weight, I’ve always been lean, but to feel better, well disposed. And I got it! I am very pleased, I have read a lot about it (including scientific literature) and I have influenced other people who need to lose weight or improve some aspects of their health. But from the beginning I went on my own way, without the help of a nutritionist because I did not want to suffer the influence of others’ ideas.

Can you put any yeast in the mixture? And if you did, would it help it rise more in addition to tasing more “yeasty”? I have been making (with great results) a browner, wheat colored bread from a recipe called Diedre’s For Real Low Carb Bread. It uses yeast and only has one rise after kneading with my dough hook attachment on my mixer. I would like to try some white bread.

The concentration of ketone bodies may vary depending on diet, exercise, degree of metabolic adaptation and genetic factors. Ketosis can be induced when a ketogenic diet is followed for more than 3 days.[34] This induced ketosis is sometimes called nutritional ketosis.[35] This table shows the concentrations typically seen under different conditions[1]
Hi and thank you so much for your prompt reply. I will definitely be more attentive to my dry measurements when I try making them the next time. I use my food processor and I'm pretty sure I got the cheese right. For what it's worth, I left them on the kitchen counter while I ran out and did some errands. When I came home I tried one again and it was delicious! Just like a scone! :) It was much better cold than hot. :)

I made this bread today and love it! The only problem I have is that the bread is very moist on the inside. The crust is perfect. I baked it at 350 for 70 mins and the bottom of the bread was a little moist as well as the inside. I measured all of my ingredients as your instructions say. Please help. This is the best bread I’ve made in the 2 years we have been eating wheat free.

I made dressing/stuffing out of this bread! I cut the bread into slices, then cut the slices into cubes. I put them on a metal pan and into my toaster oven on low temperature and let them crisp up. It takes a good while, but they DO get crisp! Then I have my croutons for the dressing. The dressing I made was delicious. I think the next time I make the bread to use for croutons I’m going to add onion powder and sage to the mixture before baking so the croutons will be seasoned some before I begin making the dressing! Love this bread! It is the most like wheat flour bread that I have tried! Thanks Maya!
Looking back on my earlier posts on ketosis—and explaining what I eat, for example—makes me both chuckle and cringe. I remember how bizarre the diet seemed to many readers and the general public at the time. I also remember digging into the literature and learning, for example, that my alma mater, Johns Hopkins had been using the ketogenic diet to treat pediatric epilepsy for almost a century…and being so embarrassed about admonishing that patient I saw in my residency.
Bhasin et al, as part of the Framingham Heart Study, found that sex hormone-binding globulin is independently associated with the risk of metabolic syndrome, whereas testosterone is not. Age, body mass index (BMI), and insulin sensitivity independently affect sex hormone-binding globulin and testosterone levels. [48] More recent studies have raised the possibility of an association between testosterone deficiency and metabolic syndrome. [49]
Hi Maria! I just want to say thank you for this bread recipe! It is awesome! It took me 4 times to get the technique down, but it works with both the Jay Rob psyllium and the bulk I get at my local store (which turns it purple). I watched your video and realized I was doing two things wrong… I was over-mixing and then I was squishing or handling the dough too much. With a little shorter mixing time, like you show on your video, and with light hands “shaping” the dough to fit in the pan, I have met with success! I also picked up the same size pan you use at the grocery store for about $5. This is the only low-carb gluten-free bread my daughter will eat. She loves it! Thanks again!
If there’s one thing keto dieters miss when they're trying to enjoy brunch, it’s those damn roasted potatoes. Yet you can dig into these "potatoes"—a.k.a. turnips—by Cast Iron Keto. They have so much flavor from paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and only 4 grams of net carbs—you won’t even miss the real thing. Pair with eggs, fish, or meat for extra protein, and you’re set. (Though there is some bacon already!)
Because carbohydrates break down into glucose, they have the greatest impact on your blood glucose level. To help control your blood sugar, you may need to learn to calculate the amount of carbohydrates you are eating so that you can adjust the dose of insulin accordingly. It's important to keep track of the amount of carbohydrates in each meal or snack.

My husband left me for a younger woman and I was devastated. It was as if she had him under an evil spell, Paul turned against me overnight without any warning. It happened last year, I was desperate so I used every single spell casting website that I could find with no results. A friend sent me the link to Dr. Todd’s site and I contacted him. He started working with me on June. As a result from all of his wonderful work, my man and I are back together. I’m so happy and privileged to have such a great person like you on my side. Thank you! Todd’s contact manifest spell cast @ gmail. com..
Once inside the mitochondrion, the dominant way that the bound fatty acids are used as fuel in cells is through β-oxidation, which cleaves two carbons off of the acyl-CoA molecule in every cycle to form acetyl-CoA.[24] Acetyl-CoA enters the citric acid cycle, where it undergoes an aldol condensation with oxaloacetate to form citric acid; citric acid then enters the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA), which harvests a very high energy yield per carbon in the original fatty acid.[25][26]

“Individuals vary in their blood ketone levels (i.e., beta-hydroxybutyrate – aka BOHB) over the course of a day and from day to day. This can be due to variations in dietary carbohydrate and protein from meal to meal and from day to day…Additional factors that increase blood BOHB are endurance exercise and also after consuming fats containing medium chain triglycerides (MCT) such as butter, coconut oil, or purified MCT oil. In contrast, there is often a steep drop in BOHB after high intensity exercise, the mechanism for which has yet to be proven. This post-sprint drop in BOHB tends to be temporary (lasting for an hour or two), which means that it’s cause is very different from the days-long drop in blood BOHB that one sees after a large carb meal.”

I actually went on a ketogenic diet last year to see if it would help my migraines. I have a history of chronic migraines which would usually last 3 days, sometimes longer. Triptans help a lot but I don’t like having to take them. I stayed in ketosis for about 8 months and experienced a significant reduction in migraines, from feeling some type of headache (mild o r severe) almost everyday to 1 or 2x per month while in ketosis. Although I’m very healthy otherwise, I do think my migraines may have something to do with blood sugar fluctuations (despite previously eating a whole foods diet and no refined carbs), and keto totally stabilized this. I eventually came off of Keto because I’m not really a meat lover. When I came off, but remained low carb, my migraines stayed under control for the most part. When I increase carbs, they do return.
Well… it turned out beautifully. It rose evenly, it was light, fluffy and baked through. It tasted very good, both plain and toasted with butter. I truthfully do not know if I would add the butter the next time I make a loaf because I was so pleased with this version. I will likely reduce the erythritol to 1 tablespoon or less for a more subtle sweetness in the future. This recipe has so many flavour possibilities and I look forward to trying out all of my ideas using this excellent base. It is also good to know that it can be made without the additional fat component. Don’t get me wrong, I am keto and a committed high fat enthusiast but slathering some fat on top of the bread… butter, pâté, nut butter… will work just fine for me.
A combination of baking soda, lemon juice, and baking powder eliminates the need for yeast in this bubbly keto bread recipe. With tons of Italian seasonings, olive oil, and flaky salt sprinkled on top, you’ll want to include this loaf with every meal. Each generous slice is 3 net carbs — and to stay more Bulletproof, simply avoid eating garlic and xanthan gum too often.
