Recently, many of my patients have been asking about a ketogenic diet. Is a ketogenic diet safe? Would you recommend it? Despite the recent hype, a ketogenic diet is not something new. In medicine, we have been using it for almost 100 years to treat drug-resistant epilepsy, especially in children. In the 1970s, Dr. Atkins popularized his very-low-carbohydrate diet for weight loss that began with a very strict two-week ketogenic phase. Over the years, other fad diets incorporated a similar approach for weight loss.
This is the best keto bread I have ever made! By far! My bread was a little flat, but I think my baking powder needs to be replaced. I did make two substitutions with this recipe. I replaced egg whites with whole eggs, and ghee with coconut oil. Everything else, I already had on hand. I will definitely make this again and play with it a little. Really delicious bread.

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.


My friend’s name is Morris from Canada, he was diagnosed of ALS disease (Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2017 and have tried all he can to get cured but all to no avail, until he saw a post in a health forum about a herbal doctor and a spell caster from West Africa called Dr MAGGI who prepares herbal cure to cure ALS and all kind of diseases including HIV, Herpes, Epilepsy, Leukemia, Asthma, Cancer, Gonorrhea etc, at first he doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try, when he contacted this herbal doctor and spell caster via his G-mail, he prepared an ALS herbal portion and sent it to him via courier service, he received this herbal portion, he gave him step by step instructions on how to apply it, when he used it as instructed, he was cured of this deadly disease within 7 weeks, all thanks to Dr MAGGI. In case you’re feeling unhealthy you can contact him via his G-mail Maggiherbalcenter@gmail com or via whatsapp +1[306]993-9253. No problem without a solution.

This poses a real evolutionary dilemma.  We need an enormous amount of energy just to not die, but the single most important organ in our body (also quite energy hungry in its own right) can’t access the most abundant source of energy in our body (i.e., fat) and is, instead, almost solely dependent on the one macronutrient we can’t store beyond a trivial amount (i.e., glucose). Obviously our species wouldn’t be here today if this were the end of the story. But, to understand how we survived requires one more trip down biochemistry memory lane.  In the figure below (also included and described in the video) I gloss over a pretty important detail.
According to most experts on the ketogenic diet, technically nutritional ketosis is defined by serum ketone levels (the amount of ketones in the blood) that fall between 0.5 to 3.0 mM. (3) Some believe that 1.5 – 3 mmol/L is “optimal ketosis,” which might contribute to the most weight loss. Every person is a bit different in terms of what exact macronutrient ratio will keep them in this range, while also allowing them to feel their best in terms of energy levels and other symptoms. You can experiment with different carb amounts while testing to see how this affects your ketone levels, aiming to remain in nutritional ketosis (0.5 to 3.0 mM), as long as you feel well doing so. Try to test at the same time each day for consistency and avoid testing right after exercise.

In sheep, ketosis, evidenced by hyperketonemia with beta-hydroxybutyrate in blood over 0.7 mmol/L, occurs in pregnancy toxemia.[78][79] This may develop in late pregnancy in ewes bearing multiple fetuses,[78][79] and is associated with the considerable glucose demands of the conceptuses.[80][81] In ruminants, because most glucose in the digestive tract is metabolized by rumen organisms, glucose must be supplied by gluconeogenesis,[82] for which propionate (produced by rumen bacteria and absorbed across the rumen wall) is normally the principal substrate in sheep, with other gluconeogenic substrates increasing in importance when glucose demand is high or propionate is limited.[83][84] Pregnancy toxemia is most likely to occur in late pregnancy because most fetal growth (and hence most glucose demand) occurs in the final weeks of gestation; it may be triggered by insufficient feed energy intake (anorexia due to weather conditions, stress or other causes),[79] necessitating reliance on hydrolysis of stored triglyceride, with the glycerol moiety being used in gluconeogenesis and the fatty acid moieties being subject to oxidation, producing ketone bodies.[78] Among ewes with pregnancy toxemia, beta-hydroxybutyrate in blood tends to be higher in those that die than in survivors.[85] Prompt recovery may occur with natural parturition, Caesarean section or induced abortion. Prevention (through appropriate feeding and other management) is more effective than treatment of advanced stages of ovine ketosis.[86]

I want to give all the glory to a herbalist for changing my life by destroying the yoke of Herpes Simplex Virus from my body system with herbal roots and herbs. I have lived with Herpes Simplex Virus for three and half years now, i continued to pray to God for divine intervention for my healing because am a believer, my condition was so obvious because of the constant Fever & flu like symptoms, Tingling, burning or itching sensation in the area where blisters will appear. I started using antiviral drugs until i saw on webmd.com that a herbalist call excel specialize on curing herpes! everyone on the site were talking about his so i got connected to the herbalist, i dived at the instructions that was given to me by him and he assured me i will get rid of the virus within a month or two. I believed and had faith in him for i really needed his help. He sent me the herbal medication through ups delivery to drink and a tree root branch to chew and swallow and i used the medication for two weeks! after a month i was experiencing changes in my body system cause the whole pain, Muscle aches were gone and now i have gotten myself back through herbal means and i advice you do the same by contacting this herbalist on Email: Excelherbalcure@gmail.com or call him +1 (859) 429 1007
I have been positive of Herpes virus for 7 years, i have suffered of this disease, i lost friend and family just because they got to know about my problem and did not want to get infected, i suffered of multiple outbreak on my private area and face. I lost all hope because no treatment was working on my system till i read about a herbal doctor called Akaba . It was showed that Akaba is a herbal professional and he has herbs that cures HERPES, HEPATITIS, HIV/AIDS, ASEPSIS, CANCER, ALS, LOW SPERM COUNT, Kidney failure, Diabetes, Skin Problem and many disease so i contacted him for cure on HSV1-2 and he sent me his herbal that lasted for 1 Month and within 10days of taking the herbal all the blaster in my private area and face wiped off and when i consumed the medicine i went to see my doctor and i was confirmed Herpes Negative it is such a miracle and blessing to know a man like doctorosas you can as well contact him on Email: akabaherbal@gmail.com or call/Whatsapp +.2347083884565
Although convincing, the bulk of evidence in relation to the inhibitory effects of ketosis on appetite is still anecdotal. Preliminary scientific reports seem to support this phenomenon, and the evidence shows that KD is more effective, at least in the short/medium-term, on fat loss (Paoli, 2014). It was demonstrated that diet-induced weight loss leads to changes in energy expenditure and in appetite-regulating hormones that facilitate weight regain and the return to initial energy homeostasis (Sumithran et al., 2011). This response to alteration of energy balance nullifies the success of many dietary approaches. It is well-known that the long-term success of a nutritional approach is defined by the amount of weight regain and is the main problem regarding the so-called weight cycling or “yo-yo” effect (Jeffery, 1996). A recent study by our group has demonstrated that a brief ketogenic period, if followed by a longer period of correct Mediterranean diet could avoid this yo-yo effect (Paoli et al., 2013). During the ketogenic period subjects reported less hunger, confirming previous studies (Nickols-Richardson et al., 2005; Johnston et al., 2006; Johnstone et al., 2008) on hunger-suppression effect of ketogenic diet. Despite these clinical findings, the mechanisms of action of ketosis on appetite reduction are still not completely understood. Clinical results are suggestive of both direct and indirect (via modifications of hunger-related hormones concentration) actions of KBs on appetite (Sumithran et al., 2013).
Today was my second attempt at making “Amazing Bread”. Maybe I needed to bake it longer, but both times, it turned out gooey. The texture was not like bread at all, but more like a dumpling. I was able to slice it and I am hoping that toasting it will make it edible since I do not want to throw it out. I weighed every ingredient by the gram and used psyllium husk POWDER.
I’m here to testify about the great work Dr Oniha did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Oniha on how he cured her from Herpes Simplex Virus. And she also gave the email address of this man and advise anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr Oniha assured me that i will be cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact Dr Oniha via email onihaherbalhome@gmail.com. You can also call his telephone number +1 669 221 3962. Thanks once again Dr Oniha.
Additional indications of exogenous BHB upregulating antioxidant defense have been observed, although without consideration of HDAC inhibition. In rats, injection of BHB has increased activities of SOD and catalase and prevented the increase in lipid peroxidation and decreases in SOD, catalase, and GSH induced by paraquat injection, all of which were observed in kidney homogenate [104]. Furthermore, BHB also prevented the paraquat-induced decrease in nuclear NFE2L2, indicating involvement of antioxidant signaling [104]. Similarly, BHB treatment has increased FOXO3a, SOD2, and catalase content in cardiomyocytes [105], indicating that BHB may also influence antioxidant defense in the heart. In this study, BHB also prevented the decrease of FOXO3a, SOD2, and catalase content that resulted from H2O2 treatment [105]. Despite the amount of research that has been done on the antiseizure mechanisms of ketogenic diets, the influence of BHB on HDAC inhibition and related antioxidant defense appears to have not yet been investigated in brain tissue. However, BHB appears to inhibit HDAC2 in microvascular and neuronal brain cells [106], and BHB-induced HDAC inhibition is thought to have a role in the antiseizure effects of ketogenic diets [107].
The metabolic syndrome quintuples the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Type 2 diabetes is considered a complication of metabolic syndrome. In people with impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose, presence of metabolic syndrome doubles the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.[28] It is likely that prediabetes and metabolic syndrome denote the same disorder, defining it by the different sets of biological markers.
A high proportion of energy from ketone oxidation is transferred to the electron transport chain at the start (as NADH+), in comparison to the energy from fat, where a high proportion is transferred ‘downstream’ (as FADH). This means that, even though there is a high amount of ‘potential energy’ in a fat molecule, less of this can be transferred to ATP.   
I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 2 years without hope for cure and i was miserable until early this year i was checking on news developments and cure then i found out how Great DR MARK DYLAN has healed his patients using natural herbal remedy. I Contacted him through his email (markdylan132@gmail.com), and he prepared the herbal remedy and sent it to me and after taking the herbal remedy as he instructed, i went back to the hospital few weeks later and the test result shows negative and now i am completely free of Herpes virus.Thanks to Great DR MARK DYLAN

Hi I made the Easy paleo keto bread 5 ingredients. It was moist, texture was good but it didn’t turn out completely white, more like a pale yellow and the crust was overdone. I opted for honey as my sweetner because this bread is for my nephew who has autism and we want to keep it as natural as possible. I baked the bread exactly at 325 for 40mins uncovered and then another 40mins covered (tent). What could I do next time to achieve a white bread with golden crust?
Maria, thank you for this recipe! Made this yesterday, and was shocked that it really did come together so quickly! I weighed the ingredients out as you recommended, and that worked out really well which I prefer since so many measuring implements can vary from one to the next. I made the almond flour and egg white version, but may eventually try it with the coconut flour. Even my non-paleo, grain-eating husband liked this bread and agreed to put it in his sandwich bread rotation–so that excites me too! My bread did have a slight purplish hue to it (used the Vitacost brand psyllium husk powder), so I just ordered some of the Jay Robb brand psyllium powder so that my husband won’t have an excuse to not eat this when he goes to make a sandwich with it. Thanks again!

God bless Dr. Ariba for his marvelous work in my life, I was diagnosed of HERPES since 2016 and I was taking my medications, I wasn’t satisfied, i needed to get the HERPES out of my system, I was directed by my brother in-law to meet Dr Ariba. who is good at curing HERPES, DIABETES,HIV/AID and CANCER with his herbal medicine, I contacted him and he guided me. I asked for solutions, he started the remedy for my health, he sent me the medicine through UPS delivery service (UPS). I took the medicine as prescribed by him and 13 days later i was cured from HERPES, Dr.Ariba truly you are great, do you need his help also? Why don’t you contact him through email: draribahomecure555@gmail.com Or contact him on whatapp via +2348138140874


Admittedly, I started my journey on this path in 2009, with a deep dive into ketosis in the Spring of 2011, but it seemed so obscure! (For a timeline of what I did, I think I covered it somewhere in this talk…yes I’m too lazy to actually confirm this by skimming through it.) All told I spent approximately 3 years in the strictest state of nutritional ketosis (NK) with one very memorable deviation when I had 6 or 7 full-sized and upsettingly decadent desserts circa September 2013. I believe the diet helped me transition from metabolic syndrome to metabolic health and I certainly thought it could benefit other people. This nutritional state could gain some steam, I thought.
I can’t believe my GENITAL HERPES and HIV is really cured, i never thought and believed that one day i will live on earth cured of this disease.i have been suffering of this deadly disease Herpes since 7years ago.Happiness is all i see now i never thought that i will live on earth before the year runs out this is a miracle A shot testimony on how i was cured for my HERPES and HIV Virus diseases by Dr Ofemu with his Herbal Root Herbs Medicine, Although this is almost too impossible to believe, but I am here to fulfill my promise to Dr Ofemu, I am a survivor, I am a living proof of this medication, at first it sounded so fake, but my mum encouraged me to continue with the medication, within 3 days I notice the sours in my genitals were all dried up and my tongue stopped paining me, so i stopped taking my Drugs and focused on the herbal medication. I felted my body coming back to life, my skin, my face, no more body weakness and my mum kept praying for me, she was really happy when i was tested negative. This unbelievable transformation have also brought me closer to God, and thanks to Dr Ofemu for his regular checkups, calls, sms and chats. I am CURED, I am CURED and I repeat I AM CURED! I have been a slave of HIV for 3years but it took just 19 days for my cure! God Bless you Sir! contact him now for any kind of diseases problem on his mail (ofemusolutiontemple@gmail.com) whatsapp and call him on or whatsapp his Africa branch on +2348158836673 he is a herbal remedy to all sickness i have copied and sent the link of your contacts to a few DIABETES, HIV/AIDS, HEPATITIS B, CANCER friends, please sir help them and God will increase you! thanks you again sir for putting a smile on my face again so i am posting to this forum saying if you are into similar situation or have any kind of disease problem you can as well contact him for help
The involvement of the endocannabinoid system in the development of metabolic syndrome is indisputable.[33][34][35] Endocannabinoid overproduction may induce reward system dysfunction[34] and cause executive dysfunctions (e.g., impaired delay discounting), in turn perpetuating unhealthy behaviors.[medical citation needed] The brain is crucial in development of metabolic syndrome, modulating peripheral carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.[33][34]
There is debate regarding whether obesity or insulin resistance is the cause of the metabolic syndrome or if they are consequences of a more far-reaching metabolic derangement. A number of markers of systemic inflammation, including C-reactive protein, are often increased, as are fibrinogen, interleukin 6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), and others. Some have pointed to a variety of causes, including increased uric acid levels caused by dietary fructose.[18][19][20]

Meanwhile, the KD induces a ketosis that is not a pathological but physiological condition occurring on a daily basis. Hans Krebs was the first to use the term “physiological ketosis” despite the common view of it as oxymoron (Krebs, 1966); this physiological condition, i.e., ketosis, can be reached through fasting or through a drastically reduced carbohydrate diet (below 20 g per day). In these conditions, glucose reserves become insufficient both for normal fat oxidation via the supply of oxaloacetate in the Krebs cycle and for the supply of glucose to the central nervous system (CNS) (Felig et al., 1969; Owen et al., 1969) (Figure ​(Figure1).1). It is well-known that the CNS cannot use FAs as an energy source because free FAs cannot cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). This is why the brain normally uses only glucose. After 3–4 days without carbohydrate intake (KD or fasting) the CNS must find alternative energy sources as demonstrated by Cahill et al. (Owen et al., 1967, 1969; Felig et al., 1969; Cahill, 2006). These alternative energy sources are the ketones bodies (KBs): acetoacetate (AcAc), β-hydroxybutyric acid (BHB) and acetone and the process of their formation occurring principally in the mitochondrial matrix in the liver is called ketogenesis (Fukao et al., 2004). Usually the concentration of KB is very low (<0.3 mmol/L) compared to glucose (≅ 4 mmol) (Veech, 2004; Paoli et al., 2010). Since glucose and KB have a similar KM for glucose transport to the brain the KB begin to be utilized as an energy source by the CNS when they reach a concentration of about 4 mmol/L (Veech, 2004), which is close to the KM for the monocarboxylate transporter (Leino et al., 2001).

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma co-activator 1α (PGC-1α) and sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) reside in mitochondria: possible direct function in mitochondrial biogenesis.

Metabolic syndrome is a serious health condition that affects about 23 percent of adults and places them at higher risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and diseases related to fatty buildups in artery walls. The underlying causes of metabolic syndrome include overweight and obesity, physical inactivity, genetic factors and getting older.
PGC-1α coactivates all three known PPAR isoforms (PPARα, PPARδ, and PPARγ) [286]. Although each isoform is expressed in a variety of tissues, PPARα is prominently expressed in the liver, PPARδ in skeletal muscle, the heart, and the pancreas, and PPARγ in adipose [286, 296]. PGC-1α was discovered and named based on its promotion of brown adipose differentiation through coactivation of PPARγ and subsequent induction of mitochondrial biogenesis and UCP1 expression [297]. However, it is the PGC-1α coactivation of PPARα that is responsible for the upregulated transcription of many of the enzymes responsible for increased ketogenesis and fatty acid metabolism in response to a ketogenic diet [120]. Consistent with the role of PGC-1α in inducing mitochondrial biogenesis, it also shifts skeletal muscle fiber composition towards type I [298, 299] and type IIa [299], which are more oxidative. AMPK also contributes to fiber type changes and is required for the transition of highly glycolytic, type IIb fibers to more oxidative, type IIa fibers [276]. Although PGC-1α is primarily known for inducing transcription of nuclear DNA, it may also, in conjunction with SIRT1, induce expression of mtDNA [300].
i am howard jessica i am so happy to share this testimony on how Dr MAGGI, was able to heal me from Herpes Disease, well i was detected positive on 21st September 2015, and ever since i have been looking for a way to treat and cure this disease from me, but always i try there was no solution,few weeks ago my aunt rosa introduce me to doctor MAGGI telling him all my problem he told me what we were to do, that he was going to send me a portion which i am going to take, and after seeing testimony of some people on how Dr MAGGI was able to cure people from Herpes disease, i also heard about it on media when a young lady also gave her testimony about this same Dr MAGGI, well left with no hope i message him and he sent me an herb portion that i will be taken., he told me to go back to the hospital for check up and after i have done that i should come and tell him the good news result, at first when i saw the message i was so shock and still did not believed i will be cured, well friend to make my story short i am cured from herpes now after many time of sorrow, i am Negative, and my sickness are gone, i thank God for leading me to this man….you can email him on Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com or you can also call him +1(662)967-1783,or watts-sap him via +1[312]767-3460 he can be of help to you on any problem like {1} HIV/AIDS {2CANCER {3}HERPES {4}DIABETES (5}HERPERTITIS B (6}HPV
Weight loss is the primary reason my patients use the ketogenic diet. Previous research shows good evidence of a faster weight loss when patients go on a ketogenic or very low carbohydrate diet compared to participants on a more traditional low-fat diet, or even a Mediterranean diet. However, that difference in weight loss seems to disappear over time.
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.  

The metabolic syndrome is the name of a cluster of risk factors that, when they appear together, dramatically raise your risk of heart disease, heart failure, stroke and diabetes, as well as other non-cardiovascular conditions. Like smoking, it’s one of the strongest predictors of heart disease. “Nearly one in three Americans have metabolic syndrome. Many people don’t recognize that they have the condition and underestimate the risks it presents,” says Chiadi E. Ndumele, M.D., M.H.S. , cardiologist at the Johns Hopkins Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease. “Understanding that you have metabolic syndrome in the first place can help motivate you to make the needed changes.” 
Nutritional ketosis may initiate bioenergetic and mitohormetic signaling through an increase in catecholamines or adiponectin, a decrease in insulin or glycogen, or an increase in β-oxidation that leads to an increase in mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mtROS) or NAD+. This leads to further signaling involving AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), silent mating type information regulation 2 homologue 1 (SIRT1), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1α (PGC-1α), forkhead box O 3a (FOXO3a), and nuclear factor erythroid-derived 2-like 2 (NFE2L2), ultimately leading to transcription of genes related to oxidative capacity, mitochondrial uncoupling, and antioxidant defense. These adaptations collectively contribute to resistance against oxidative stress. Other proteins involved include liver kinase B1 (LKB1), which activates AMPK; nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT), which facilitates SIRT1 activation through NAD+ synthesis; and nuclear respiratory factors 1 and 2 (NRF-1 and NRF-2) and mitochondrial transcription factor A (TFAM), which promote mitochondrial biogenesis.

After being in ketosis for a while, you may notice being able to tolerate a bit more carbs. If you so desire, gradually increase them and check for changes in your ketone levels and how you feel, look and perform (as Robb Wolf fond of saying). You could start by eating dairy products again. But beware if you’re highly insulin resistant, milk and yogurt can have enough carbs to kick you out of ketosis.
In rats fed a ketogenic diet (Bio-Serv F3666) for 22 days, mitochondrial density (determined by electron microscopy) in the hippocampus increased in conjunction with increased transcription of 39 of the 42 mitochondrial proteins analyzed [162]. Similarly, mitochondrial content (mtDNA copy number) increased in skeletal muscle of mice fed a ketogenic diet (Research Diets D05052004; % energy: 89.5 fat, 0.1 carbohydrate, and 10.4 protein) for 10 months [163]. Higher mtDNA copy number was also observed in skeletal muscle of rats fed a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet (% energy: 60 fat, 20 carbohydrate, and 20 protein) for 4 weeks in conjunction with daily injections of heparin (0.5 U/g) to increase circulation of fatty acids [87]. In humans, after just 3 days of a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet (% energy: 50 fat, 34 carbohydrate, and 16 protein), fat oxidation significantly increased and 49% of the variance was explained by mtDNA content [79]. Despite this, the content of mtDNA did not change significantly, but this was expected given the brief duration of the diet.

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 3 years ago at the age of 59. For several months I had noticed tremors in my right hand and the shaking of my right foot when I was sitting. My normally beautiful cursive writing was now small cramped printing. And I tended to lose my balance. Neurologist had me walk down the hall and said I didn’t swing my right arm. I had never noticed! I was in denial for a while as there is no history in my family of parents and five older siblings, but now accept I have classic symptoms. I am taking totalcureherbsfoundation.com herbal treatment  and am about to start physical therapy to strengthen muscles.this herbal treatment has full get rid of my PD after 15 weeks of usage and it has reversed all symptoms.
I am very happy today to share this amazing testimony on how Dr. MAGGI the herbal doctor was able to cure me from my HIV Virus with his herbal medicine. I have been a HIV patient for almost 8 months now and have tried different methods of treatment to ensure that I am cured of this terrible disease, but none worked for me, so I had to leave everything to God to handle as I was a Christian who had faith that one day God would intervene in my life, yet I felt so sad and desperate as I was losing almost everything due to my illness, A few months ago while I was surfing the internet I saw different recommendation about Dr MAGGI on how he have been using his herbal Medicine to treat and cure people, these people advice we contact Dr. MAGGI for any problem that would help immediately, I contacted Dr MAGGI and I told him how I got his contact and also about my disease, after some time Dr.MAGGI told me to have faith that he would prepare medicine for me a medication of herbal herbs, he told me I would take this medicine for a few weeks and also asked for my home address so as possible for him to submit the drug for me, so my good friends after all the process and everything Dr MAGGI actually sent me the medicine, I took it as I was directed by Dr. MAGGI, after a few weeks passed, while on Dr.MAGGI medication I began to experience changes in my body, I had to call my doctor at the hospital for some blood test after test my hospital doctor told me that I was no longer with the Hiv virus and my blood is pretty good, I can’t even believe this, Friends well today i am Hiv Negative and i want everyone to know that there is a cure for Hiv for those who will contact Dr MAGGI after reading my testimony, you can kindly contact Dr. MAGGI on Email:Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com or call +1(305)697-6952 OR whatsap him +1(306)993-9253,or you can also check him on his Wixsite: https:maggiherbalcenter.wixsite.com/drmaggi
Hi Diane, the bread should not be moist in the middle now should it fall apart. I don’t think substituting the butter for coconut oil could have been the reason for the problem – they have similar consistencies and can normally be subbed for one another without problem. The only thing I can think of is that you may need to bake it for longer. Ovens do vary and maybe it was the case that it was just not done. I hope this helps 🙂

I NEVER comment on posts or leave reviews (because I’m lazy lol) but I had to stop in and thank you for this recipe. I have been doing bad on keto because I just cannot stop having some kind of bread in the morning with my coffee. What can I say, I’m weak. I’ve tried the other bread recipes out there and they are disgusting. This was DELICIOUS!! OMG! I think I can get back into ketosis (and stop farting on everyone) thanks to you 😀
Am really grateful and thankful for what Dr Maggi has done for me and my family with is herbal herbs , I have be suffering from HIV for good three years with no solution, the diseases almost took my life and because I was unable to work and I was also loosing lots of money for medication, but one faithful day when I went online, I met lots of testimonies about this great man so I decided to give it a try and to God be the glory he did it. If you need his help or you also want to get cured just the way I got mine, just email him below (Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com) and get your healing. He has cure for other deadly diseases like Herpes, Hiv/Aids, Hepatitis , Cancer or you can also view his webs: http://drmaggiherbalcenter.webs.com
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.
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. 🙂

When your carb intake is that low, your body can't burn glucose (a.k.a the sugar from carbs) for energy like it normally would. So instead, it burns fat for energy, a process that then releases ketones as a byproduct, says Eric Klett, M.D. an endocrinologist and associate professor of medicine and nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. (This process explains why people on the keto diet see such crazy weight-loss results.)


I am very happy today to share this amazing testimony on how Dr MAGGI the herbal doctor that was able to cure me from my Herpes Virus with his herbal medicine. I have been a Herpes patient for almost 8 months now and have tried different methods of treatment to ensure that I am cured of this terrible disease, but none worked for me, so I had to leave everything to God to handle as I was a Christian who had faith that one day God would intervene in my life, yet I felt so sad and desperate as I was losing almost everything due to my illness, A few months ago while I was searching the internet I saw different recommendation about Dr MAGGI on how he have been using his herbal Medicine to treat and cure people, these people advice we contact Dr MAGGI for any problem that would help immediately, I contacted Dr MAGGI and I told him how I got his contact and also about my disease, after some time Dr MAGGI told me to have faith that he would prepare for me a medication of herbal herbs, he told me I would take this medicine for a few weeks and also asked my home for home address so as possible for him to submit the medicine for me, so my good friends after all the process and everything Dr MAGGI actually sent me the medicine, I took it as I was directed by Dr MAGGI, after a few weeks passed, while on Dr MAGGI medication I began to experience changes in my body, I had to call my doctor at the hospital for some blood test after test my hospital doctor told me that I was no longer with the Herpes virus and my blood is pretty good, I can not even believe this, Friends well today i am Herpes Free and i want everyone to know that there is a cure for Herpes for those who will contact Dr MAGGI after reading my testimony, you can kindly contact Dr MAGGI on his email: Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com or whatsaap him through his mobile} +1[306]993-9253.

NOTE:  Make sure to weigh your ingredients to ensure it rises properly and doesn’t get hallow and gummy.  Also, if you do weigh and grind your psyllium and still have a problem, try grinding the psyllium again.  We have a batch of psyllium that we ground and didn’t work.  Stay really wet.  So we ground it again and it works great!  Also, if your loaf looks nice and big but then deflates after removed from the oven, try reducing the baking powder to 3 teaspoons.
Blood pressure goals are generally set lower than 130/80. Some blood pressure medications offer more benefits than simply lowering blood pressure. For example, a class of blood pressure drugs called ACE inhibitors has been found to also reduce the levels of insulin resistance and actually deter the development of type 2 diabetes. This is an important consideration when discussing the choice blood pressure drugs in the metabolic syndrome.
As previously mentioned, numerous studies have demonstrated a profound increase in fat oxidation in response to ketogenic and low-carbohydrate diets. Some studies have even shown an increase in O2 consumption [148, 155–158]. However, fats contain fewer oxygen atoms per carbon than carbohydrates, thereby necessitating greater O2 intake to produce the same amount of energy [159]. Furthermore, since β-oxidation and ketolysis produce a greater proportion of FADH2 to NADH, the resulting decrease in passage of electrons through complex I decreases potential for ATP production per unit of O2 consumption [160]. Increased O2 consumption in response to a ketogenic diet may therefore merely be an effect of the differences in the metabolism and molecular structures of fat and carbohydrate rather than a true indication of increased capacity for oxidative phosphorylation. However, in rat hearts perfused with glucose, the addition of ketones has decreased O2 consumption [161]. This discrepancy may be related to variations in mitochondrial uncoupling. Either way, several studies have shown ketogenic diets to increase mitochondrial content, and numerous studies have shown these diets to increase expression, content, or activity of mitochondrial proteins involved in oxidative phosphorylation and fat oxidation. Compared to O2 consumption alone, these findings provide more conclusive support for an increase in oxidative capacity in response to nutritional ketosis.
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]
^ Lawrie 2014, pp. 92-. "A much delayed onset of rigor mortis has been observed in the muscle of the whale (Marsh, 1952b). The ATP level and the pH may remain at their high in vivo values for as much as 24h at 37ºC. No adequate explanation of this phenomenon has yet been given; but the low basal metabolic rate of whale muscle (Benedict, 1958), in combination with the high content of oxymyoglobin in vivo (cf 4.3.1), may permit aerobic metabolism to continue slowly for some time after the death of the animal, whereby ATP levels can be maintained sufficiently to delay the union of actin and myosin in rigor mortis."
The best way to prevent metabolic syndrom is to adopt heart-healthy lifestyle changes. Make sure to schedule routine doctor visits to keep track of your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. Speak with your doctor about a blood test called a lipoprotein panel, which shows your levels of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.

Saturated fat: A type of fat found in abundance in butter, whole milk, ice cream, full-fat cheese, fatty meats, poultry skin, and palm and coconut oils. Saturated fat raises levels of heart-threatening LDL cholesterol in your bloodstream. It can also interfere with your body’s ability to absorb blood sugar easily. Limiting saturated fat can help control your risk for heart disease.

Like you say on your show, I am a foodie and hate it when recipes on websites turn out tasting bleh. This bread has a great texture. After making it a few times plain now, I added some sesame seeds to the batter and that turned out great too. I make an open faced breakfast sandwich with a slice of this almond flour bread, plenty of cream cheese and scrambled eggs. Paired with coffee. So tasty, that I can’t tell it isn’t a regular scrumptious egg sandwich.
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.
Central obesity is a key feature of the syndrome, being both a sign and a cause, in that the increasing adiposity often reflected in high waist circumference may both result from and contribute to insulin resistance. However, despite the importance of obesity, patients who are of normal weight may also be insulin-resistant and have the syndrome.[27]
The most common and relatively minor short-term side effects of ketogenic diet include a collection of symptoms like nausea, vomiting, headache, fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, difficulty in exercise tolerance, and constipation, sometimes referred to as keto flu. These symptoms resolve in a few days to few weeks. Ensuring adequate fluid and electrolyte intake can help counter some of these symptoms. Long-term adverse effects include hepatic steatosis, hypoproteinemia, kidney stones, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
When you eat more food than your body needs, it’s converted to triglycerides and stored inside your fat cells. The more often you keep consuming large amounts of glucose through carbohydrate foods, the less your body needs to tap into existing sources (your fat cells or stored glycogen in your liver and muscles) for energy, so your newly added fat cells remain intact and, therefore, weight loss is much more difficult.

Thanks for replying. I guess I’ll just try it on both convection and regular and see which works out best! 🙂 I had made the sub roll in a regular oven with good results yet it didn’t turn out as well when baked on convection. That’s why I was wondering about the temperature and whether that was the culprit. Guess there’s only one way to find out. This experimenting can get expensive!

Apart from administering insulin, the fastest way to lower your blood glucose is to engage in physical activity. Exercise results in an increased sensitivity to insulin. It causes your muscle cells to take up more glucose, leaving less of it to circulate in your bloodstream during and after the physical activity (which means a lower blood glucose when you test). Frequent, regular exercise is very important to good blood glucose control no matter what type of diabetes you have. Research has shown that it is vital in warding off long-term complications like neuropathy, retinopathy, and heart and kidney diseases. Don't forget to check with a doctor, though, before making any major changes to your exercise routine. And, if you have type 1 diabetes and your glucose is 250 mg/dl or higher, check for urine ketones. You should not exercise if ketones are present.
Hi Christy, It might be a little more difficult, but in theory possible. You’d need to stir the dry ingredients, then use a hand mixer instead of food processor to mix them with the butter. Then, after beating the egg whites separately, you’d need to mix in part of them, trying not to break them down, then fold in the rest once it’s easier to fold.

Who would have ever believe that herbs can cure four years HERPES in my body, i never believe that this will work i have spend a lot when getting drugs from the hospital to keep me healthy, what i was waiting for is death because i never believed that i will ever get cured,but this faithful day y friend who was also HERPES positive to the Dr, after i came across a testimony on the internet of a lady on a forum who said she live in Florida testifying about a man called Dr Teshe who cured her from HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS, i decided to email him, unknowingly to me that this will be the end of the HERPES in my body, he prepare the herb for me, and give me instruction on how to take it and after that, he told me to go to the hospital for a check up, and i did exactly what he instructed, surprisingly after the test the doctor confirm me negative, i thought it was a joke, i went to other hospital to do another test and it was also negative, then i took m the treatment she was also confirm negative . He also have the herb to cure cancer please i want every one with this virus to be free, that is why am dropping his email address,drtashe@gmail.com and his whatsapp number you can also call him through this same number too +2348154724883. thank you once again Dr Teshe for saving my life, and I promise I will always testify for your good work.

I can’t find an 8×4 pan in the local stores, so while I wait for one to be shipped I went ahead and made these into hamburger bun shape. I don’t have a kitchen scale so I just measured everything super precise and got great results. I only have NOW brand psyllium husk powder so yes, they are an odd shade of purple but they taste great so I don’t care. What I really wanted was a vessel for butter and it made for a great snack before bed- which I know I’m not supposed to have but I was too curious to wait until morning! 🙂 Thanks for the update on this recipe, it made all the difference!

I am Harry Grace, from New york, USA I can’t stop thanking DR boadi for this Great thing that he has done in my life, I am so grateful to him, i was suffering from HIV virus for 11years,when i contacted DR boadi after reading the wonderful testimony that people has been sharing about him. I have being on medication and trying looking for cure to my ailment. I went through internet doctors and i contacted a Tradomedical/Traditional doctor named, Dr boadi for help. He give me all his rules and regulations,that if he cured me that I should write about him on internet site and that is what I’m doing now. He assure me that he will cure me with his herbal medicine which he really did, and I’m now completely cured from HIV virus. What will i say rather than thanking him for saving me. Why suffering in silence when there is remedy to your diseases.Dr boadi also specialize in curing the following disease:
I have been suffering from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) disease for the past four years and had constant pain. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from Herpes Simplex Virus by this Man Dr Oniha and she also gave the email address of this man and advise anyone to contact him for any kind of problem that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr Oniha telling him about my (Herpes Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!!

You can also reach him directly on his WhatsApp +1 (925) 248-3607.

Yes, beating the egg whites until semi-stiff could trap even more air and result in fluffier bread. If you try it, can you let us know how it went? I’d be super interested to hear. As for the rise, it really depends on your tin. If it’s a large (regular) bread tin, your bread would probably not rise above. If you use a half-sized (ca 500g) tin, it should.
