The ARC exerts opposing actions on food intake responding not only to leptin and insulin, but also to gut hormones (the most studied are ghrelin and, recently, PYY). The neurophysiological pathways suggest that feeding is regulated by a feedback loop, where the hypothalamus provides the long-term regulatory input to the NTS, which acts as a setpoint (Williams et al., 2001).
Aside from managing your diabetes, a diabetes diet offers other benefits, too. Because a diabetes diet recommends generous amounts of fruits, vegetables and fiber, following it is likely to reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases and certain types of cancer. And consuming low-fat dairy products can reduce your risk of low bone mass in the future.
One particular concern to be aware of is the risk for ketoacidosis, which especially applies to diabetics. Ketoacidosis is a dangerous metabolic state in which excessive amounts of ketones are produced. In mostly healthy individuals, ketosis is regulated by insulin, which is the hormone that controls the creation of ketone bodies and regulates the flow of fatty acids into the blood.
Hey Maya!! This is the 2nd recipe I’ve tried off your website and again I love it!! Turned out really well. I can have sandwiches again or a quick piece Of toast when I’m in a hurry to get out the door. I was skeptical about the xanthan gum since I tried a recipe using psyllium husk powder. I did not like it. I can’t taste the xanthan gum so I have no problem using it going forward. Thanks again for the recipe!!!

This “lazy” keto bread recipe is anything but boring: Crumbling the butter directly into the dough creates moist and tender biscuits for all your sweet and savory recipes. Plus, this recipe takes 30 minutes from start to finish and keeps each biscuit macro-friendly at 3 net carbs. Stay more Bulletproof and use the sour cream and whey protein swaps suggested in the recipe, plus avoid eating flaxseed too often.
Contact your doctor and ask if you should change or increase your medication dosage, if you are taking a medication for diabetes. Despite the perception you may have that your blood sugar instability is becoming worse, Diabetes Health explains that the medication adjustment may just be dividing the dosage and taking it more often. Additionally, infection and illnesses can make your body less efficient at processing sugar, resulting in higher blood sugar levels temporarily.
At the University of Leicester, scientists have showing that the level of sugar in your blood can affect blood vessels which in turn can have potentially dangerous effects on your heart and blood pressure. Glucose has an important role to play in the normal functions of the cardiovascular system.  Untreated high sugar levels can lead to life threatening illnesses.

Mediterranean diet: Traditional cuisine of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, shown to reduce the risk for heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and dementia. On the menu: Plenty of fruits, vegetables and beans, along with olive oil, nuts, whole grains, seafood; moderate amounts of low-fat yogurt, low-fat cheese and poultry; small amounts of red meat and sweets; and wine, in moderation, with meals.


Because the population of the U.S. is aging, and because metabolic syndrome is more likely the older you are, the American Heart Association (AHA) has estimated that metabolic syndrome soon will become the main risk factor for cardiovascular disease, ahead of cigarette smoking. Experts also think that increasing rates of obesity are related to the increasing rates of metabolic syndrome.

Gluconeogenesis is the endogenous production of glucose in the body, especially in the liver primarily from lactic acid, glycerol, and the amino acids alanine and glutamine. When glucose availability drops further, the endogenous production of glucose is not able to keep up with the needs of the body and ketogenesis begins in order to provide an alternate source of energy in the form of ketone bodies. Ketone bodies replace glucose as a primary source of energy. During ketogenesis due to low blood glucose feedback, stimulus for insulin secretion is also low, which sharply reduces the stimulus for fat and glucose storage. Other hormonal changes may contribute to the increased breakdown of fats that result in fatty acids. Fatty acids are metabolized to acetoacetate which is later converted to beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetone. These are the basic ketone bodies that accumulate in the body as a ketogenic diet is sustained. This metabolic state is referred to as "nutritional ketosis." As long as the body is deprived of carbohydrates, metabolism remains in the ketotic state. The nutritional ketosis state is considered quite safe, as ketone bodies are produced in small concentrations without any alterations in blood pH. It greatly differs from ketoacidosis, a life-threatening condition where ketone bodies are produced in extremely larger concentrations, altering blood ph to acidotic a state.


Eat more fruits and vegetables. According to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines, a person on a 2,000-calorie-per-day diet should eat 2.5 cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit a day. This amount will vary depending on how many calories you need. Be sure to choose a variety of fruits and vegetables. Different fruits and vegetables have different amounts and types of nutrients.
Preliminary evidence suggests certain other supplements, including aloe, ashwagandha, ginkgo, green coffee bean extract, glucosamine, black cohosh, rhodiola, reishi mushroom and tart cherry juice may lower blood sugar. While there is not enough clinical research to support the use of these supplements for this purpose, it's important to keep this in mind, as they could enhance the blood sugar lowering effect of other supplements or medications you may be taking.
Weigh your ingredients. This will forever be a staple recommendation for any sort of gluten free baking here at gnom-gnom. As aside from leading to less dirty dishes, it will ensure consistent results time and time again. Remember that gluten free (and particularly keto) baking is notoriously finicky, and measuring by cups is anything but accurate. And if you don’t own a baking scale, measure with cups by dropping the ingredients onto them rather than scooping them out (which often leads to overpacking).
The brain is a particularly greedy organ when it comes to energy requirement. To put this comment in perspective consider the following: though our brain represents only about 2% of our body mass, it accounts for about 20% of our energy expenditure.  (In children, by the way, this may be closer to 40-50% of basal metabolic demand.) So, beyond the ATP issue, above, there is a substrate issue with the brain as neurons derive most of their energy from glucose.  While there is emerging evidence that neurons can also oxidize fatty acids directly in small amounts and may even prefer lactate (over glucose), these two substrates do not approach the levels of consumption by neurons that glucose does.  So, for the purpose of this discussion, let’s just focus on the need of the body to provide glucose to the brain.
The SS providing information to the brain mainly send information to the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS). These signals are generated in the GIT and abdominal viscera, as well as in the oral cavity and provide information about mechanical and chemical properties of food. The information is transmitted via vagal and spinal nerve to the NTS. The ASs arrive to the median eminence through ARC or through the blood-brain barrier (BBB). All these afferents are integrated in a complex and not fully understood network.

In regard to the practicality of BHB signaling, many of the outcomes described above, including HDAC inhibition, were achieved with BHB concentrations within the range of 0.6–2 mM [37, 103, 105, 108, 109, 111, 112, 116], which is well within the physiological range of nutritional ketosis for humans and even suggests potential benefit at low to moderate levels.

Hi Leo, almond flour bread will always taste of almond flour – there’s no way around it. Since there is no way you can make bread with almond flour using only one egg – it would simply not hold together – it sounds like you’ll have to look for a substitute that is more to your taste. Thank you for taking the time to comment on this recipe, and I hope you find other recipes on my site that are more to your liking 🙂

Since then, it’s safe to say I dove down the rabbit hole. The more I learned, the more I grew tired of reading so much misinformation on the topic. While there are more thoughtful people and articles on the subject of ketosis these days (e.g., here’s a thoughtful video on ketosis and ketogenic diets from one of my most important ketosis mentors, Steve Phinney, a co-founder of Virta Health1Disclosure: I’m an investor in, and advisor to, Virta Health.), there are still pieces like the one Vox published this month, that doesn’t exactly do the topic justice.

Hi Maria! Just wanted to say I love this recipe and I found a way to make similar single servings quickly that look like english muffins! I just use a greased ramekin and combine 2 tbsp almond flour, 2 tsp psyllium husk (or 1 tsp powder), pinch of salt and baking powder. Then stir in 2 tbsp + 2 tsp egg whites, 2 tbsp water, 1 tsp olive oil and 1/8 tsp apple cider vinegar. Microwave for 1 min then flip out onto a plate and microwave for another 30 sec. Toast and top with whatever you’d like! 🙂
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.
I read through aaaaallllll the comments for research before I made this bread, one thing I noticed when making your protein buns was – when I used 2 teaspoons of baking powder they deflated when exiting the oven. When I reduced the BP to 1.5 teaspoons, they turned out fine. I made two batches with 2 tsp of BP – they turned out like raisins, and 2 batches with 1.5 tsp of BP and they turned out fine. No one posting mentioned adjusting the baking powder – perhaps that would help in this recipe since deflating is a problem, maybe there is too much chemical loft for the non-gluten structure to handle?

Metabolic syndrome is similarly prevalent in men (24%) and women (22%), after adjusting for age. [28] However, several considerations are unique to women with metabolic syndrome, including pregnancy, use of oral contraceptives, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. [43] Metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovarian syndrome share the common feature of insulin resistance; they therefore share treatment implications as well. [44] Cardiometabolic risk is thought to be elevated in both groups. [45]
Maria and Craig: I made this recipe (into kaiser roll shapes) on Sunday night for the first time. I just ate my first sandwich (pork roast and mayo, yummy) on it and almost wept with happiness. It is SO good. The texture is PERFECT. It was easy and quick to make. And I can actually see my way to a GF lifestyle…sandwiches have been my bugaboo all along. Thank you, thank you for all your hard work and wonderful recipes!

With the recent research findings, and the increasing availability of exogenous ketones, it is unsurprising that some authors have said (with a hint of skepticism) that they “could be the next magic bullet’ for athletes39. More research is required to understand the best use cases, doseage protocols, compounds etc, however it is clear that exogenous ketones are a new ‘tool’ in the athlete’s arsenal that can be used to provide an alternative, energetically favourable fuel source without needing dietary manipulation.

Losing weight is 80% diet. Volek and Phinney did a study where they put people on a High fat (65-80% of calories from fat, 50-75 grams protein and low carb) and had one group do no exercise, one do resistance training and one to resistance training and cardio. All 3 groups lost the same amount of weight on average. But the resistance training group lost almost entirely fat while preserving muscle mass, which is important. So I always advocate some resistance training. 🙂
Just made my 3rd loaf. My technique has been improving each time so I am getting a better result! I had never baked anything before like this and there is an art involved. But the deliciousness has never been absent… the mixture of these ingredients has been amazing. Just going from Salvador Dali bread to Leonardo Divinci for style is the new goal!
Wow… I made this for the first time yesterday and feel like I don’t need bread anymore this is a real game changer. It turned out a little dry the first time, but then I adjusted the time (80 seconds) and it made all the difference! I also added a little bit of swerve and it tasted like regular bread to me!! Toasted it and topped with Philadelphia 😀
Insulin inhibits AMPK activity by stimulating protein kinase B (PKB) to phosphorylate the Ser485 residue of the α subunit, thereby inhibiting phosphorylation at Thr172 [222]. One of the most prominent features of nutritional ketosis is that, due to restricted carbohydrate intake, postprandial insulin is dramatically decreased. Furthermore, numerous studies have shown ketogenic or low-carbohydrate diets to decrease fasting insulin [155, 195, 223–225], particularly in the presence of metabolic dysregulation associated with hyperinsulinemia [84, 226–229].

If you do not have an Instant Pot yet, I have to tell you, I am not a gadget girl and I adore my slow cooker. I like the idea of filling my slow cooker the night before, place the shell in the fridge overnight and turning it on in the morning and allow the meal to cook while I am working or exploring nature all day. However, the Instant Pot was easy to fall in love with. It is also a slow cooker! And on days when I forget to plan ahead, I can make a delicious meal in minutes. Click HERE to find the Instant Pot I love. 
While there are some differences in opinion, depending on who you ask, regarding the best approach to very low-carb dieting, studies consistently show that the ketogenic diet (also called the keto diet) produces not only substantial weight loss for a high percentage of people who adhere to it, but also other important health benefits such as reductions in seizures, markers of diabetes and more.
In order to best investigate the efficiency of different fuels, one needs a closed system, where the substrate conditions can be changed and the oxygen consumption and work done can be accurately measured. Isolated (ex-vivo) animal hearts are the best model to study these variables, as it is easy to manipulate the fuel provided (i.e glucose, ketones), to measure the oxygen use and also the amount of work (how much fluid is pumped).
