Natural herbs have cure so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure.I have seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful works they have done in peoples lives.I read people’s testimonies on line on how they were cured of herpes,HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Akhigbe.herbal medicines,so I decided to contact because I know nature has the power to heal anything.I was diagnosed with HIV for the past 7 year but Dr Akhigbe cured me with his herpes and I referred my aunt and her husband to him. Immediately because they where 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 good in curing diabetes,cancer,asthman,diarrhea,hiv/aids,impotence and other virus. Contact Dr Akhigbe on phone/WhatsApp no: +2348142454860 or email him on..drrealakhigbe@gmail.com

Excess abdominal fat leads to excess free fatty acids in the portal vein, increasing fat accumulation in the liver. Fat also accumulates in muscle cells. Insulin resistance develops, with hyperinsulinemia. Glucose metabolism is impaired, and dyslipidemias and hypertension develop. Serum uric acid levels are typically elevated (increasing risk of gout), and a prothrombotic state (with increased levels of fibrinogen and plasminogen activator inhibitor I) and an inflammatory state develop.
I’m here to testify about what DR. MAGGI did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured 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 Rose Smith on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. MAGGI on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. MAGGI prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. MAGGI assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. MAGGI for help via email} Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com or call +1(662) 967-1783 or whatsapp him on +1(306) 993-9253, Thanks once again DR. MAGGI for making me a happy woman again. or visit his web:drmaggiherbalcenter.webs.com.
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).

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.
While tender, chocolatey donuts are perfect on their own, this keto breakfast recipe amps them up with a rich and sweet glaze. Pair with coffee and tea, or enjoy as dessert (if you can wait that long). At just over 2 net carbs per donut, they’re basically guilt-free. For more Bulletproof donuts, use grass-fed butter and mold-free coffee, plus full-fat coconut milk instead of heavy cream in the glaze.
Ketone esters (BHB-BD) could help to accelerate glycogen resynthesis32. After exercise that depletes muscle glycogen, the muscle uses carbohydrate from the diet to replenish these stores. An experiment was carried out where athletes undertook depletive exercise and then were given a ketone drink (or carbohydrate placebo) as well as glucose intravenously to maintain a high blood level (10mM). In this experiment, when the recovery drink contained ketone ester, more glucose was infused in order to maintain blood glucose at 10 mM, and muscle glycogen levels were 50% higher. However, the evidence is not conclusive: another study. 31 found that adding ketone ester to a protein and carbohydrate recovery drink did not enhance the normal rate of glycogen re-synthesis.  
In skeletal muscle, impaired mitochondrial function contributes to age-associated atrophy, impaired contraction, and insulin resistance [2]. While exercise provides a direct stimulus for mitochondrial adaptation in muscle, with great potential to prevent or treat the aforementioned conditions, the global effects of exercise on bioenergetic homeostasis may lead to mitochondrial adaptations in other tissues as well. Based on this, exercise has the potential to influence any condition for which impairments in global energy metabolism or local mitochondrial function are a contributing factor, which is arguably the case for a majority of chronic diseases. Exercise is therefore an excellent adjunct to nutritional ketosis because it facilitates β-oxidation and ketogenesis by increasing energy demand and depleting glycogen storage, which is likely to augment the signaling induced by nutritional ketosis.

Type I diabetes is usually treated by insulin injections, that replace the body’s own insulin production. In Type I diabetics, lowering dietary carbohydrate consumption can reduce the need to inject insulin to lower blood sugar101. However, because they do not release any insulin Type I diabetics can be at risk of developing a complication called “Diabetic Ketoacidosis” (DKA). DKA occurs because, alongside its effects on glucose, insulin has other effects in the body. Insulin normally inhibits the release of fat (lipolysis) from adipose tissue. In Type I diabetics, the lack of insulin can lead to high levels of lypolysis, high levels of fatty acids in the blood, this then drives rapid and uncontrolled liver ketone production. The symptoms of DKA are weakness, confusion and deep gasping breathing. In order to avoid developing DKA while following a ketogenic diet, Type I diabetics should seek medical supervision and closely monitor their glucose and ketone levels if reducing their dietary carbohydrate intake. 
Rookie experiment, I tried to add 1/4 C of Almond Flour to the Coconut based recipe 1st time all whites and 2 T less, ground psyllium – rise was high, then sunk down quite a bit & was still gummy. 2nd attempt 1 C egg whites and 4 whole eggs, looked a bit better, but the loaf didn’t rise a lot. Not too gummy though. 2nd one tasted better according to husband. Help! London.
Keep in mind that the ketogenic diet takes into account net grams of carbohydrates, not simply total grams. Net carbohydrates are the amount of carbohydrates left over after you subtract grams of fiber from total grams of carbohydrates. For example, if vegetables you’re eating have 5 grams of carbohydrates total, but 3 grams come from fiber, the total number of net carbohydrates is only 2 grams, which is the number you add to your daily total.
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.
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).

Monica, i use NOW psyllium as well but GRIND i t just in case, my lower half is still under cooked at 75 min on 325, but the top half is beautiful. This is my 3rd attempt. I don’t think it is the psyllium powder and the first time i used silicone pan this last time metal. I’m frustrated as I’m throwing away close to 5lbs almond flour for 4th attempt. My pan is standard size loaf pan maybe i should divide mixture into 2 smaller ones. Oh also, the first time I baked it at 375 for 60 min. The 2nd reduced water and psyllium. The 3rd was the first few lines above, still no luck, someone HELP
For a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome, a child must have at least three of the four risk factors. The most common risk factors in teens are hypertension and abnormal cholesterol. Even when just one risk factor is present, a doctor will likely check for the others. This is especially true if a child is overweight, has a family member with type 2 diabetes, or has acanthosis nigricans.

Love how quick and easy these are to whip up and they’re really satisfying to eat. Made them tonight to use as hamburger buns; sliced them in half and grilled them and they worked great. I think the coconut gives them some sweetness that reminds me of cornbread (I used a coconut/almond milk blend for the liquid). I think we’ll be making a lot of these!
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.
Dr. Sam has really made me so much believe in him by getting me cured with his herbal treatment. i really appreciate you Dr.Sam for bringing back happiness to my life again. thanks you so much,friends join me to thank him for what he has actually done for me i pray to you all for a good life and good health, and most especially to you Dr. Sam THANKS.
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!
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!

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.  
Hi Cindy, nut flour breads do not rise as much as wheat breads. Also, I used a small bread tin in the post – if you use a regular size bread pan your bread will end up flatter. What you can try next time is to try to keep the dough nice and fluffy, trying to keep as much air inside as possible (for example, not press it into the pan as much as you can). You could also try to whisk the egg whites until they’re stiff and fold them under last, which will make your dough lighter (=more air). I hope this helps

Insulin is the medication that will bring blood glucose down the fastest. Someone who uses mealtime insulin can take correction doses to lower blood glucose. This requires a thorough understanding of when to inject, how often to give correction doses, and how much insulin to use. You will need to work with your doctor or diabetes educator to learn how to do this.
Ketone salts did not improve performance 35 ,36. There are two recent published studies of ketone salts on athletes.. Performance was compared between ketone salts vs. carbohydrate in a 4 minute cycling time trial and a 150 kJ ( ~10 mins) cycling time trial. In the 4 minute trial there was no change in performance, and in the 150 kJ test, performance was decreased by 7%. Reasons for the difference in findings could be: Lower levels of blood BHB levels (which peaked at 0.6 mM and 0.8 mM in these studies) meaning far less BHB was present than in the ketone ester study. The ketone salt was given without carbohydrate and so there was no additive effect of ketones + carbohydrate as seen in the ketone ester study. The tests used were short and highly reliant on anaerobic (glycolytic) metabolism, therefore ketones did not offer an advantage. 
You should always be in touch with your doctor about your disease and any changes you make or problems that you notice. Having that line of open communication is key to gaining knowledge and insight into what can make your life and your health better. Try the things mentioned in this article, but if they don’t help, then talk to your physician about what else is available for you.
Yeah, odd prescription, I know, but dog owners are more active than non-dog owners. Why? Well…picture those big, brown, sad eyes pleading with you: Pleeeeeeeeeease take me for a walk. Frankly, most of us have a hard time with self-motivation. We’re tired, overworked, and stressed out—but we’re human beings. There’s a root word of humane in there somewhere. Often, we will do for others what we won’t do for ourselves; and pets are the hardest to say no to, because of the whole issue of interspecies communication. You can rationalize with your kid about why you’re too busy to play in the park with her, but your dog isn’t going to take no for an answer.
As the rate of oxidative phosphorylation approaches the capacity of the mtETC, Δp will increase and facilitate mtROS production [53]. Higher oxidative capacity should therefore decrease the potential for mtROS production and subsequent oxidative damage. Furthermore, greater oxidative capacity may compensate for the resulting decrease in efficiency of ATP production associated with increased mitochondrial uncoupling. Since oxidative phosphorylation occurs exclusively in mitochondria, mitochondrial density is a key determinant of oxidative capacity [154].

Also frequently seen with metabolic syndrome are tendencies for excessive blood clotting and inflammation. While obvious symptoms may be absent, these features are a warning of an increased likelihood of clogged arteries, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease, and even premature death. If left untreated, complications from diseases associated with untreated metabolic syndrome can develop in as few as 15 years. Those who have metabolic syndrome and also smoke tend to have an even poorer prognosis.
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 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.


Several additional rodent studies have shown ketogenic diets to increase protein content of UCPs. However, since mitochondrial function was not measured in these studies, it is not known if uncoupling was affected by these changes in UCP content. In obese mice fed a ketogenic diet (0.4% of energy as carbohydrate), expression of UCP1 and UCP2 increased in adipose and the liver, respectively [148]. Similarly, expression of UCP1 has increased in brown adipose of mice fed a low-carbohydrate diet (18.5% of energy) supplemented with ketone esters (6% w/v) [149]. The increase in hepatic UCP2 expression during a ketogenic diet has been demonstrated by other studies as well [37, 150, 151]. Ketogenic diets also induce expression of UCP3 in skeletal muscle. In rats fed a ketogenic diet (% energy: 78.1 fat, 0 carbohydrate, and 21.9 protein) for 8 weeks, UCP3 expression increased in the soleus but not the extensor digitorum longus, which is consistent with the soleus containing mostly oxidative, type I muscle fibers [152]. In humans, glycogen depleting exercise followed by two days of a low-carbohydrate diet (0.7 g/kg body mass) increased UCP3 expression in the vastus lateralis [153].
Excess abdominal fat leads to excess free fatty acids in the portal vein, increasing fat accumulation in the liver. Fat also accumulates in muscle cells. Insulin resistance develops, with hyperinsulinemia. Glucose metabolism is impaired, and dyslipidemias and hypertension develop. Serum uric acid levels are typically elevated (increasing risk of gout), and a prothrombotic state (with increased levels of fibrinogen and plasminogen activator inhibitor I) and an inflammatory state develop.
Practically speaking, because it takes several days to raise blood ketone levels by following the ketogenic diet it has been virtually impossible to study the effects of ketosis on brain injury in humans. It is also complicated by the difficulty in quantifying the extent of the damage without repeated imaging and there is a lack of reliable biomarkers for concussion. Furthermore, concussions can’t be ‘administered’ to humans experimentally, making it impossible to study in a controlled setting. Therefore much of the proof of concept research looking a ketosis for concussion has been done in animals. Nevertheless, the results are promising: rats who were given a ketogenic diet or ketone precursors before67 and after68 a controlled concussive injury have were found to have improved brain energy metabolism, and improved cognitive and motor function post injury. Also, giving exogenous ketones as an injection post-injury protected the brain against glutamate induced excitotoxicity69 and alleviated the decrease in brain ATP that occurs due to the depression of glucose metabolism70. Therefore, as scientists’ ability to quantify concussion in humans improves, ketosis could be an interesting intervention to attempt to reduce the harmful after-effects.

Going from a standard-American diet to a well-formulated low-carb or ketogenic diet is a health upgrade. However, it usually comes with unpleasant but temporary symptoms of carbohydrate withdrawal, also known as the keto flu. This is easily addressed by using Nutrita to properly follow a ketogenic diet or simply by familiarizing yourself with basic electrolyte management.
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.
Like fiber, protein tempers insulin secretion, leading to a more gradual rise in blood sugar after a meal. It also fills you up better than any other nutrient. Eating a protein-rich breakfast may be particularly important, as it helps set the tone for the rest of the day. The amount of protein you need in your diet depends on a number of factors, but general protein recommendations for healthy adults are 0.8 to 1.0 gram per kilogram of body weight (55 to 68 grams per day for someone who’s 150 pounds). Good animal sources include wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef, and pasture-raised chicken and eggs. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, load up on these eight plant-based protein sources.
This bread looks amazingly awesome and I will be trying it soon, but with a gluten free psyllium husk brand. I just wanted to point out that J Robb’s Psyllium Husk package declares the presence of WHEAT. Read the label listed on his website. Using his Psyllium Husk would make the bread NOT gluten free. It also states that it has a multitude of other allergens and possibly all of them are in a package at the same time. Just a heads up.
Hey there… I’m new to keto, so I’m hoping my questions don’t come across as really stupid. Your bread looks great, and if I can get bread again, then that’s simply awesome. The pictures remind me of banana bread. Is there a way of adding this flavor without going insanely overboard on the carbs? And without that artificial banana taste? Also, would this recipe work as muffins? Thanks, Kelly

This was a great read. I aim to restrict carbs always because I believe most are why the American population is obese. I would very much like to hear more about carb restriction excluding the discussion on processed meats and processed high salt content foods because I consume neither. I also don’t consume dairy or eggs. So can you provide some substance.
You’ll recall, from the point I made above, that my brain requires about 400 to 500 kcal of glucose per day (100 to 120 gm).  You’ll also recall (from the video, above) that I can store about 100 to 120 gm of glucose in my liver.  While I can store much more in my muscles, (on the order of about 300 to 350 gm), because muscles lack the enzyme glucose-6-phosphatase, glucose stored in muscle as glycogen is unable to re-enter the bloodstream and is meant for the muscle and the muscle alone to use.  In other words, muscle glycogen is a stranded asset of glucose in the body to be used only by the muscle.

Am really grateful and thankful for what Dr. Oriane has done for me and my family. i have be suffering from DIABETES INFECTION 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 : droriane6@gmail.com and get your healing. He has cure for other deadly diseases like Herpes, Hiv, Hepatitis,ALS
Menopause is the time in a woman's life when menstrual periods permanently stop, also called the "change of life." Menopause symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, irregular vaginal bleeding, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, urinary incontinence, weight gain, and emotional symptoms such as mood swings. Treatment of menopausal symptoms varies, and should be discussed with your physician.
Maria, can you clarify the recipe as far as fluid ounces versus weighted ounces? For example, for the boiling water, 1.5 cups of water is 12 fluid ounces, but 1.5 cups of water does not weigh 12 weighted ounces. As I watch your video, you weigh the boiling water in a measuring cup, but once again I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be 12 fluid or weighted ounces. And is that true for the vinegar and egg whites as well… fluid ounces versus weighted ounces?
Several other rodent studies provide additional evidence of ketogenic diets upregulating antioxidant defense, but without enough data to convincingly attribute the results to mitohormesis. Content of SOD2 has increased in the livers of mice fed a ketogenic diet (% energy: 89 fat, <1 carbohydrate, and 10 protein), which occurred in conjunction with increased median lifespan and decreases in tumors and age-associated losses of physical and cognitive performance [36]. In addition, activity of GCL and the protein content of its two subunits increased in the hippocampal homogenate of rats fed a ketogenic diet (Bio-Serv F3666) for 3 weeks [97]. This was in conjunction with higher levels of reduced glutathione (GSH) and lower ROS production in hippocampal mitochondria. The ketogenic diet also increased resistance to mtDNA damage in hippocampal mitochondria exposed to H2O2 [97]. Consistent with these results, total antioxidant capacity and activities of GPx and catalase were increased in hippocampal homogenate of rats fed a ketogenic diet (% energy: 86 fat, <1 carbohydrate, and 13 protein) for 8 weeks [98]. Furthermore, in cortical homogenate of rats induced with traumatic brain injury, a ketogenic diet increased cytosolic and mitochondrial protein contents of NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) and SOD1, as well as mitochondrial protein content of SOD2, and also prevented mitochondrial oxidative damage (indicated by 4-HNE) [99].
In skeletal muscle, impaired mitochondrial function contributes to age-associated atrophy, impaired contraction, and insulin resistance [2]. While exercise provides a direct stimulus for mitochondrial adaptation in muscle, with great potential to prevent or treat the aforementioned conditions, the global effects of exercise on bioenergetic homeostasis may lead to mitochondrial adaptations in other tissues as well.

It’s hell to live with the HERPES virus, I lost almost almost everything that made me a complete human and also suffer rejection and pains, My life was drastically going down the drain till I found useful information online that directed me to this website ‘herpesredemption.com’ where I read useful information about the virus and also contacted the email provided and to cut the story short, I was given instructions which I followed and the remedy was given to me, I used it and got healed.
Drug treatment may be necessary to address other aspects of metabolic syndrome. Hypertension should be treated. Statins may be prescribed to treat unhealthy lipid levels. Some healthcare practitioners also recommend aspirin to decrease the risk of inappropriate blood clots. Some may prescribe medications to increase insulin sensitivity (although there is not widespread agreement on this).
As for the bacon, I lay it out in my biggest iron skillet and bake it in the oven while the eggs are in the Instant Pot, the timing works out almost perfectly.  If you’ve got a busy week at work or are going through finals week as a student (or teacher) make these bad boys the Sunday before and roll them into 10 balls rather than 8 and have 2 for breakfast all week long, rather than skipping breakfast and subjecting yourself to UIF (Unintentional Intermittent Fasting).

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.

I am so happy to share this testimony on how Dr balogun, 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 their was no solution,few weeks ago my aunt rosa introduce me to doctor balogun 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 balogun 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 balogun, well left with no hope i message him and he sent me an herbal 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 balogun.herbalsolutioncenter@gmail.com or you can also call him via +2349064881054 he can be of help to you on any problem like {1} HIV/AIDS {2CANCER {3}HERPES {4}DIABETES (5}HERPERTITIS B (6}HPV .

tips for making this bread with coconut flour and those getting purple results! i made half the recipe and made the following changes: 3/4 cups of water, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. my bread which previously came out purple and with very dense patches came up much fluffier and with more bread like ‘holes’ and also had the colour of normal brown bread! i baked it in a small loaf and the bread rose a lot but the top half was basically a tunnel. the rest of it is good ‘bread’ though! 🙂
A ketogenic diet could be an interesting alternative to treat certain conditions, and may accelerate weight loss. But it is hard to follow and it can be heavy on red meat and other fatty, processed, and salty foods that are notoriously unhealthy. We also do not know much about its long-term effects, probably because it’s so hard to stick with that people can’t eat this way for a long time. It is also important to remember that “yo-yo diets” that lead to rapid weight loss fluctuation are associated with increased mortality. Instead of engaging in the next popular diet that would last only a few weeks to months (for most people that includes a ketogenic diet), try to embrace change that is sustainable over the long term. A balanced, unprocessed diet, rich in very colorful fruits and vegetables, lean meats, fish, whole grains, nuts, seeds, olive oil, and lots of water seems to have the best evidence for a long, healthier, vibrant life.
I never though herbal medicine could be so powerful, i nave been suffering from genital herpes for long now and i have also have HIV and i have visited hospital times without number and they keep giving medication but it never put an end to it. my genital organ keep swollen and i was more scared and i began to go to one clinic or the other just to get rid of it and i have spent a lot of money trying to get ride of both infection HIV & genital infection. i told my husband about it which was my greatest mistake ever since then his attitude towards me change i can no longer get close to my husband or any one else i was down to nothing. i decided to search for help through the internet and i came across a comment on how doctorlucky cure someone from genital yeast infection and i decided to get in touch if he could help. i contacted him through watsapp and his email and he told me that only herbal medicine can put a stop to my illness. he gave me a herbal medicine which i was using for just one week and i began to experience changes i am happy to tell you today that i am happy am finally cured from HIV & GENITAL HERPES. i went to three different hospitals for proper check up and all result was negative am full of happiness. doctorlucky i own you a lot thanks for your help if you need his help i will be glad to share his contact with you all email him doctorluckyherbalhome@gmail.com or watsapp +393510598611.
The previous definitions of the metabolic syndrome by the International Diabetes Federation[40] and the revised National Cholesterol Education Program are very similar and they identify individuals with a given set of symptoms as having metabolic syndrome. There are two differences, however: the IDF definition states that if body mass index (BMI) is greater than 30 kg/m2, central obesity can be assumed, and waist circumference does not need to be measured. However, this potentially excludes any subject without increased waist circumference if BMI is less than 30. Conversely, the NCEP definition indicates that metabolic syndrome can be diagnosed based on other criteria. Also, the IDF uses geography-specific cut points for waist circumference, while NCEP uses only one set of cut points for waist circumference regardless of geography. These two definitions are much more similar than the original NCEP and WHO definitions.

Just like you, i read about doctor White on the internet, Like you i had my doubts and was skeptical but unlike many i decided to place my destiny in my own hands by going further to contact and follow his instructions. These is not a testimony but the words of one who have felt the pains of being infected and affected with HIV/AIDS and get cured using natural herbs after being in pains and abandoned for 4 years. I was taking my ARV drugs same time praying to heaven and hoping i will be cured by any means which God answered using doctor White herbal medicines after i have read about his wonderful herbs on YouTube videos posted by a survival. After writing him on Watsapp via/ +234(0)9091844595 and email/drwhitethehivhealer at gmail .com I was amassed by the level of certainty he had by asking i return to do a confirmatory test after using his medicines. I used these medicines for the stipulated weeks and truly the result came out negative i was shocked and could not believe it, i immediately called doctor White who told me to rejoice, pass the good news to my family and share my testimony with others and that’s why I’m doing this. Friends, I am a witness this day that should you contact Doctor White for VIRAL infections like Herpes, Hpv, HIV and Hepatitis B or C and others you will not regret it.

I finally made this recipe. (I have made many of your others and use them often.) It did fall slighty but I was still able to slice it after it cooled. It was also purple, which is just fine with me. I toasted in the oven this morning and it was nice and crisp. I can’t tell you have happy I was to dip it in my fried egg this morning. Thanks, Maria, for all you do!
Hey Maria, I am baking my third loaf of your amazing bread. I’ve been having trouble with it rising and keeping risen, but it is still delicious. This time it has risen to new heights and I’m hoping it stay high. I don’t usually make comments because I almost always make changes to recipes. I added onion powder, garlic powder and caraway seeds. It bothers me when people give recipes poor ratings after they have changed them. Anyway, the reason for my comment is to thank you and tell you how brilliant, amazing and stupendous you are. Using psyllium is genius. I have been making various low carb breads for years, some that I invented, others not. Anyway, nothing I have made has ever come close to the taste or texture of yours. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

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. 
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.
Many neurological conditions share a common feature of impaired brain energy metabolism. It isn’t always clear if this impairment is the cause or the effect of the disease, but nonetheless, interventions that even partially restore or improve brain energy metabolism could help to prevent, slow or even reverse some conditions of the brain. Because ketones can: 1) get into the brain; 2) undergo metabolism by a distinct pathway that bypasses glucose metabolism, providing ketones by either following a ketogenic diet or by taking exogenous ketones could impact the natural course of some neurological conditions. 

i am Rose from UNITED STATES i was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS for over 12 years which made loose my job and my relationship with my fiance after he discovered that i was having HIV, he departed from me i tried all my best to make him stays with me, but neglected me until a friend of mine on Facebook from Singapore told me Great healer, who will restore my life back with his powerful healing spell, he sent me the email address to contact and i quickly contacted him, and he said my condition can solved, that he will treat the disease immediately only if i can accept trust him and accept his terms and condition, i Agreed because i was so much in need of help by all means, so i did all he want from me and surprisingly on Sunday last week He sent me a text, that i should hurry up to the hospital for a checkup, which i truly did, i confirm from my doctor that i am now ( HIV NEGATIVE) my eyes filled with tears and joy, crying heavily because truly the disease deprived me of many things from my life, This is a Miracle, Please do not en-devour to email drtebe2@gmail.com or whatsapp Dr Tebe on +2348140544262 for healings Thanks

Acetoacetate diester did not improve performance37: a different ketone ester to that used by Cox et al (an acetoacetate diester) decreased cycling performance by 2% given before a 50’ cycling race. Reasons for the difference in findings could be: this ketone ester drink was given along with a can of diet cola 30 mins before exercise and caused GI upset in many athletes. Delivering acetoacetate causes the muscle cells to become more ‘oxidised,’ which is a less favourable state for ATP production. Risk of some gastrointestinal upset with all ketone supplements. The dose, tonicity, time taken before competition and overall volume of a ketone drink will affect how easy it is to tolerate. Many athletes take ketone supplements without side effects, however there are differences between individuals, so practice with ketone supplements in training is advisable to ensure they don’t experience any GI side effects in competition. Geoff Woo discussed this study in a blog post.


The occurrence of mitohormesis is further supported by the potential for mtROS to simultaneously induce bioenergetic and antioxidant adaptations through a single signaling mediator. As discussed later in this review, this mediator is the transcription factor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1α (PGC-1α), and its role in simultaneously inducing bioenergetic and antioxidant adaptations has been demonstrated in several experimental models of mtROS production, including treatments with paraquat and H2O2. Paraquat is an herbicide that is reduced by the mtETC and subsequently initiates mtROS production by reacting with O2 to produce O2•− [74, 75], and H2O2 is a common form of mtROS. Treatment of a fibroblast cell line (10T1/2) with H2O2 has induced expression of both antioxidant enzymes (SOD1, SOD2, and GPx1) and proteins involved in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation, all in a manner largely dependent on PGC-1α [76]. Demonstrating the hormetic benefit of this response in a variety of brain cells, overexpression of PGC-1α protected against cell death induced by H2O2 or paraquat treatment, and this occurred in conjunction with changes in gene expression similar to those observed with the 10T1/2 cells [76]. Although the central role of PGC-1α in linking mitochondrial bioenergetics with antioxidant defense appears to not have been thoroughly investigated in vivo, some suggestive evidence does exist. In skeletal muscle of mice treated with paraquat, content of proteins involved in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation and uncoupling have been found to increase in conjunction with greater nuclear localization of PGC-1α [77]. Traditional antioxidant proteins were not measured, but, as will be discussed later, the increase in uncoupling proteins can be regarded as an indication of enhanced antioxidant defense based on the potential of these proteins to decrease mtROS production.
Unfortunately I did not care for this recipe. I’ve been cooking snow I was 8yrs old and cook everything from scratch but I always make a recipe and follow it to a T the first time..based on that..this was like eating scrambled eggs..the taste was very very eggy! Texture was like scrambled eggs too on the inside.. Also very very salty!! I’m wondering if taking out the yolk and eliminating half the salt could make this better. I’m bummed because I really wanted to like it.

Consistent with the mechanisms described above, changes in AMPK in response to a ketogenic or low-carbohydrate diet have been reported in several studies. In rodents, a ketogenic diet (Bio-Serv F3666) has increased AMPK activity in skeletal muscle [150] and AMPK phosphorylation in the liver [230], and a low-carbohydrate diet (18.5% of energy) supplemented with ketone esters (6% w/v) increased AMPK content in brown adipose [149]. In humans, a nonketogenic low-carbohydrate diet (% energy: 50 fat, 30 carbohydrate, and 20 protein) has increased AMPK phosphorylation in skeletal muscle [231].
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. :)
Lower fasting blood glucose: Fasting blood glucose gives a good snapshot of insulin sensitivity. In a healthy person, fasting blood glucose is , in pre-diabetes , and in diabetics this can exceed . A clinical study comparing a low calorie ketogenic diet to a low calorie diet showed that following the ketogenic diet resulted in lower blood glucose and lipid levels even if subjects were maintained at a constant weight 102 ,103.
Oregano and Sage: One group of researchers tested a variety of herbs and spices for a specific antioxidant activity that help to prevent an increase in hemoglobin A1C, a protein maker in the blood that is affected by blood sugar levels. They found that two of the herbs with the highest antioxidant levels were oregano and sage (1)…can you say Italian food?

I LOVE this bread. I’ve made it a ton of times and it never disappoints. In fact, my friend and I like this bread more than any regular grain based bread we’ve ever had. I do have one small problem and was wondering if anyone can tell me what I am doing wrong. No matter how many times I’ve made this bread, the loaf always comes out lop-sided; meaning, it rises on one side more than the other and I cannot for the life of me figure out why. I would love to include a picture to illustrate what I mean, but there is no option to do this. All I can say is one side of the bread rises out above the bread tin more than the other side. I use a smaller loaf tin lined with parchment paper and follow all of the baking instructions to the tee. Any ideas???
