Russel Wilder first used the ketogenic diet to treat epilepsy in 1921. He also coined the term "ketogenic diet." For almost a decade, the ketogenic diet enjoyed a place in the medical world as a therapeutic diet for pediatric epilepsy and was widely used until its popularity ceased with the introduction of antiepileptic agents. The resurgence of the ketogenic diet as a rapid weight loss formula is a relatively new concept the has shown to be quite effective, at least in the short run.
You’ll need to use the dreaded E-word: exercise. But don’t freak out on me. I’m not saying you should go out and buy a treadmill or a gym membership. Rather, look for every excuse to exercise your body. Just use it whenever you can during the normal course of the day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park farther from the door. Go fly a kite…on a calm day. At night, circumnavigate the couch during TV commercials.
Ketosis occurs either as a result of increased fat oxidation, whilst fasting or following a strict ketosis diet plan (ENDOGENOUS ketosis), or after consuming a ketone supplement (EXOGENOUS ketosis). When in a state of ketosis the body can use ketones to provide a fuel for cellular respiration instead of its usual substrates: carbohydrate, fat or protein.
Hi Jen, It sounds like it needed to bake for longer – this is why it sunk and was still moist. The timing varies by ovens and even different pans. I hope you’ll try it again and just keep it in there for longer. You can cover the top if it starts to brown too much. For the one you made, depending on how moist it was in the middle, you may be able to salvage it somewhat by pan frying the slices.
I used the egg white powder with the recommended amount of water on the egg white can in addition to the 12 oz. of water called for in the recipe. The bread tastes good, but is fairly dense. I didn’t have many eggs and wanted to try the recipe, but I think next time I’ll use fresh egg whites. I’ll also have to figure out what to do with the leftover yolks.

These Keto Breakfast Fat Bombs are a true lifesaver for frantic (Monday) mornings. Personally, when I wake up in the morning after my alarm clock gives out a warning I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time. By the time I grab my books and give myself a look, I’m at the corner just in time to see the bus fly by…wait no, scratch that…that’s Zach Morris, not me. Either way, I’m sure we’ve all had those mornings where we were saved by the bell, so let these little bacon covered bites of heavenly deliciousness make your mornings more calm*, I guess you could say you’re saved by the (fat) bomb.
Rick, Yes, I would try baking it longer if it’s coming out gummy. If it’s starting to brown too much outside, but the inside doesn’t seem to be fully cooked, you could cover it with foil to prevent over-browning. Another trick I sometimes use is to leave the bread in the oven to cool once it’s done baking (sometimes covering the loaf with foil to prevent over-browning). I hope these tips help!
I want to say thank you. I don’t always have time to bake, and this is a life saver, of sorts. My brother is diabetic, and his doctor recommended a low-carb diet; I’m diabetic also, and gluten intolerant. This bread has the most wonderful taste and texture, and is so quick and easy, I’ve already committed the recipe to memory. Even my SO, who is neither gluten free nor diabetic, likes the taste and texture. I did cut down the salt, because like some others, I found the 1/4 teaspoon to be too salty. Other than that, raves and kudos!! We are thrilled, and planning all the different ways we’re going to use this bread. Many thanks!!

Maria, I made your bread using NOW psyllium, it tastes more like a loaf of real bread than anything I’ve tried. It’s lots better than the pricey Low Carb Bread Company loaves that I have been buying on Netrition. I had previously tried a similar recipe that had coconut flour, and even though I added quite a bit of onion powder, the coconut flavor was still distinguishable, and I’m not a fan.
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. It is likely that prediabetes and metabolic syndrome denote the same disorder, defining it by the different sets of biological markers.
The exact cause of metabolic syndrome is not known. Many features of the metabolic syndrome are associated with "insulin resistance." Insulin resistance means that the body does not use insulin efficiently to lower glucose and triglyceride levels. Insulin resistance is a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors. Lifestyle factors include diet, activity and perhaps interrupted sleep patterns (such as sleep apnea).
Ketone bodies synthesized in the body can be easily utilized for energy production by heart, muscle tissue, and the kidneys. Ketone bodies also can cross the blood-brain barrier to provide an alternative source of energy to the brain. RBCs and the liver do not utilize ketones due to lack of mitochondria and enzyme diaphorase respectively. Ketone body production depends on several factors such as resting basal metabolic rate (BMR), body mass index (BMI), and body fat percentage. Ketone bodies produce more adenosine triphosphate in comparison to glucose, sometimes aptly called a "super fuel." One hundred grams of acetoacetate generates 9400 grams of ATP, and 100 g of beta-hydroxybutyrate yields 10,500 grams of ATP; whereas, 100 grams of glucose produces only 8,700 grams of ATP. This allows the body to maintain efficient fuel production even during a caloric deficit. Ketone bodies also decrease free radical damage and enhance antioxidant capacity.
First I tried using coconut flour only. The batter was very thick and pasty and the resulting bread was very firm and dry, like a really dry biscuit. It did, however, keep its shape well and toasted up evenly golden-brown in a skillet with oil. I thought about trying again with more liquid, but that wouldn’t solve its fatal flaw: the strong, overwhelming coconut flavor. Even chicken and sun-dried tomato pesto could barely cover it up.
Type II diabetics can reduce their risk of developing these complications by keeping blood glucose levels within a healthy range (4.5 - 6.5 mM). This can be achieved using insulin injections, but using insulin is not without side effects (i.e hypoglycemia requiring assistance and weight gain)101. Therefore dietary carbohydrate restriction is likely to be a good lifestyle change to help with diabetes management,. Companies such as Virta Health are popularising this approach to diabetes management and pioneering the use of technology to improve compliance. The benefits of carbohydrate restriction include:
In the United States, metabolic syndrome has a high prevalence in African Americans, particularly African American women, and this has been attributed to the higher prevalence of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes in this population.  However, the highest age-adjusted prevalence of metabolic syndrome in the United States is found in Mexican Americans, approximately 31.9% of whom had the condition (compared with 27% of the general population) in a 1988-1994 survey. 
Maria – Love this recipe – took me 4 times before I got it how I wanted it and I add sesame seeds. Then I slice really really thin – about 1/2 cm then dry all the slices in the oven ready for toasting. However, right now I can only find baking powder with vanilla. Can I sub baking soda which together with the vinegar should work but how much? Can you help please?

I was a Corpsman (not a corpse-man as some recent somewhat fanatical president would say), and I can tell you many stories of Marines and Sailors who maintained restrictive diets (aka picky eaters). Most obvious was lack of sustaining energy (hypoglycemia) at mile 15 (with 80lbs of gear including a 6.5lb rifle and 200 rnds of ammo, etc.) and depletion of essential vitamins, electrolyte imbalance. They were always the first to collapse and have to hear me scold “see I told you so.” An IV of D5W usually does the trick (D is for dextrose, OMG!)
I just tried this for the first time and it didn’t turn out :(, it is very gummy and dense. I used Now Healthy Foods Psyllium Husk Powder, I measure out 10 TBSP and then weighed it, it went way over 90 grams on my scale so I kept using less and less until I got to what I thought was 90 grams. This powder is very fine. I looked for Jay Robb psyllium husk powder but the only thing on his website is psyllium seed husks? No powder? I see on your “store” you’re promoting “Frontier” psyllium husk powder, should we use that instead?
Keeping a log of your blood sugars is a great way to be knowledgeable about your body and how it is reacting to foods and events. To start, check before and after every meal, along with one in-between meal check. It is important that you keep a log of these blood sugars, along with all of the foods that you are eating, activities you are performing and any insulin or medications that you are taking. Do this for a week, and see if you can identify any patterns. Take this log to your doctor and talk to them about your findings.
Garlic: Potent, but effective. Garlic is known as one of the oldest medicines in the world…and with good reason. An animal study that administered high doses of raw garlic to rats for 4 weeks found that it had a profound effect of reducing blood glucose levels, as well as cholesterol and triglycerides compared to rats who did not receive raw garlic (2). They also tested rats with boiled garlic, and saw no changes in blood glucose, so the benefit comes from raw garlic.
The fact that the diagnostic criteria for metabolic syndrome vary between ethnic populations is testimony to significant nuances in the manifestation of metabolic syndrome in these groups. The original metabolic syndrome criteria were derived in mostly Caucasian populations, and some have argued for modification of individual criteria for specific ethnic subgroups, as has been done with waist circumference for patients of Asian origin.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL – the "good" cholesterol) ordinarily transports excess cholesterol from the tissues back to the liver. In the liver, the cholesterol is either recycled for future use or excreted into bile. HDL's reverse transport is the only way that cells can get rid of excess cholesterol. It helps protect the arteries and, if there is enough HDL present, it can even reverse the build up of fatty plaques in the arteries. When there are excessive amounts of VLDL and triglyceride present, however, HDL concentrations in the blood decrease.
Type 2 diabetes is by far the most common form (around 90% of all cases) and the one which is increasing the most. It primarily affects overweight people in middle age or later. It’s not uncommon for the affected person to also have a high blood pressure and an abnormal lipid profile. Gestational diabetes is a temporary special case of type 2 diabetes.
In recent times there has been an exponential increase in the rates of obesity and diabetes. Popular opinion has blamed (in turn) overconsumption of fat, overconsumption of carbs and sugar and overconsumption of calories. Whilst the overall calorie balance is a crucial factor that cannot be overlooked, it is also the case that different macronutrients in the diet (especially carbs and fat) have different effects on the body when consumed.
Ketone ester drinks can improve performance30. When taken with pre-exercise carbohydrates, a BHB-butanediol (BHB-BD) ketone ester allowed cyclists to ride 2-3% further in a 30 minute time trial than with carbohydrate alone. This is likely to be a combination effect of: Ketones themselves being a highly efficient fuel and improving muscle efficiency. Fuel availability is a key determinant of performance. By increasing the availability of an alternative fuel (ketones) during exercise this spares muscle carbohydrate stores for later in the exercise bout meaning more is available for the end of the test.
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.
The only issue with keto, is really that I’m afraid that it might be hard to up my calories to a maintenance weight now that I’ve gotten a taste preference for the rich assortment of foods with no carbs in them. I’m satisfied with less calories than I will need after my excess fat is burned off… but , maybe I bet my body will send more hunger signs once there isn’t anymore body fat in the cupboard to use instead of what goes down my throat.
I never believed but i have to give a try because i was desperately in need of cure to the deadly disease that i have been living with.

Clinical trials of various ketogenic agents have shown promising outcomes in AD. Recently, a case report was published describing a dramatic improvement in cognitive function in a patient consuming daily drinks of a ketone ester of beta-hydroxybutyrate-butanediol54. This corroborates evidence from animal studies of AD, which showed behavioural and anatomical improvements in AD mice treated with the same ketone ester55. Also, medical foods containing medium chain triglycerides can give an acute improvement in cognitive scores in AD patients 56 ,57. The effectiveness of this treatment was found to depend on the absence of a gene variant that has been associated to increased chance of AD, called APOE4. Finally, following a ketogenic diet for 6 weeks improved the symptoms of mild cognitive impairment58. It is still early days, but the use of ketogenic diets and exogenous ketones may help to improve the quality of life of patients with dementia and their caregivers.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome. Thought to be related to insulin resistance, this disorder involves the release of extra male hormones by the ovaries, which can lead to abnormal menstrual bleeding, excessive hair growth, acne, and fertility problems. It is also associated with an increased risk for obesity, hypertension, and — in the long-term — diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
This paleo keto bread recipe makes a delicious option for coconut lovers.
