Maria I have ALL your books, except your 30 day cleanse, and I have attempted the 7 day weight loss and healing plan, and dairy free I might add, but was so hungry and dizzy on it! My husband pointed out the the “lunch” area, item, says Side. Well I’ve read it 3 times – the front of the book and such, it doesn’t say add food to the “SIDE”…it says use this plan. Also you maybe have said elsewhere, but the math is wrong on the second page for total calories….lastly the intermittent fasting – I thought I read previously in the Metabolism book that you shouldn’t fast more than 3 days at a time, but this book doesn’t mention that. Have you updated your thoughts?
Ketones are a special type of fat that can stimulate the pathways that enhance the growth of new neural networks in the brain. A ketogenic diet is one that is high in fats, and this diet has been a tool of researchers for years, used notably in a 2005 study on Parkinson’s patients finding an improvement in symptoms after just 28 days. The improvements were on par with those made possible via medication and brain surgery. Other research has shown the ketogenic diet to be remarkably effective in treating some forms of epilepsy, and even brain tumors.
We are brazilian, living in Brazil. My daughter, Isabel, 21y. o., born in 1996, has syndrome of deficiency of Glut1. She was diagnosed around her first year of life. At that time her baby bottle, her begining diet meal, was 50ml water plus 50ml oil plus vitamin. Since then, which means, for 20 years, she is under this diet. For almost 18 years under 4:1 proportion. At this right moment 3:1. The only problem she had since started the diet were kidney stones in 2002. Nothing else. Grateful to the diet she doesn’t take any kind of medicine to avoid seizures. Her health is perfect, no colesterol at all. We are at your will for any issues related to her health.
The advice above is therefore not only illogical, but also works poorly. It completely lacks scientific support according to a Swedish expert investigation. On the contrary, in recent years similar carbohydrate-rich dietary advice has been shown to increase the risk of getting diabetes and appears to potentially worsen blood sugar levels long-term in people who already have type 2 diabetes. The advice does not improve their health in other important ways either.

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.

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?

The gut-brain link is important not only for the hormones produced by the gut, but also for the long-term body weight regulation. Studies in mice indicate that the gut microbiome influences both sides of the energy balance by contributing to nutrient absorption and regulating host genes that affect adiposity [however there are conflicting reports (Parks et al., 2013; Schele et al., 2013)]. However, it remains uncertain just how important gut microbiota are for nutrient absorption in humans. A cohort study has demonstrated that the nutrient load is a key variable that can influence the gut/fecal bacterial content over short time frames. Furthermore, the observed associations between gut microbes and nutrient absorption indicates a possible role of the human gut microbiota in the regulation of the nutrient intake and utilization (Jumpertz et al., 2011).

Glucose is stored in your liver and released as needed for energy. However, after carb intake has been extremely low for one to two days, these glucose stores become depleted. Your liver can make some glucose from amino acids in the protein you eat via a process known as gluconeogenesis, but not nearly enough to meet the needs of your brain, which requires a constant fuel supply.


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.
While entering into ketosis it’s common to notice certain signs and symptoms of your body changing. These have been nicknamed by some “the keto flu.” While implementing the ketogenic diet can be challenging at first, commonly causing some side effects that can last for 1–2 weeks (or potentially more), these typically go away with time. Symptoms usually decrease as your body get’s more accustomed to being in ketosis, but in the meantime you might find that you experience:
Improved insulin markers: In Type II diabetes, fasting insulin levels are often elevated, and insulin has less of an effect (meaning it takes longer for blood glucose to fall after the post-meal increas). Whilst evidence is not conclusive, some studies have claimed to demonstrate an improvement in insulin sensitivity with the ketogenic diet104. The evidence supporting a decrease in fasting insulin levels with a ketogenic diet has been demonstrated more consistently 104 , 105 .
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]
Just made this and as a normal bread lover, I am very impressed! But do have a question. Can you over cook this? Mine seems a bit light inside, like a teenie bit mooshy, and can’t see it holding up in a sandwich. The temp was at 200 inside but I had already had it in for like 50 minutes longer than the posted time and I could still hear a little squish but didn’t want to over cook.
I followed the recipe to a tee, used all recommended ingredients. I’ve attempted making it twice, the first time I didn’t have a food processor and that was a complete fail. The second time, today, I bought a food processor and attempted it again. The egg whites were fluffy but never got to stiff peaks… maybe my eggs were too cold? Anyway, I baked for 30 mins, and it wasn’t even golden brown on the top so I didn’t put the foil on time and cooked it another 20 mins. I just pulled it out about 20 mins ago and it is golden brown. However, it is a very moist almost like a banana bread texture. I just popped it back in the oven hoping it will “dry up”. Any recommendations? Do I need to cook for and hour ?

Target organ damage occurs through multiple mechanisms in metabolic syndrome. The individual diseases leading to metabolic syndrome produce adverse clinical consequences. For example, hypertension in metabolic syndrome causes left ventricular hypertrophy, progressive peripheral arterial disease, and renal dysfunction. [12] However, the cumulative risk for metabolic syndrome appears to cause microvascular dysfunction, which further amplifies insulin resistance and promotes hypertension. [13]
Not quite sure if I’m doing it wrong but the mixture isn’t liquidy at all, it’s almost dry, it’s a bit difficult to mix and I had to add a tablespoon of water to even mix it. It didn’t come out fluffy looking like yours did, it’s rather dense (I guess from overmixing), but it doesn’t taste bad. I also added a pinch of oregano, cumin and garlic powder. I toasted it and had some hummus with it. 🙂 Any idea how to fix the batter or what I’m doing wrong?
In order to obtain the most comparable measures, it is useful to measure blood ketones at the same time each day. Measuring immediately on waking means that there are fewer potential variables that could alter the measurement, such as exercise, or different food intake. However, it can also be useful to check ketone levels around 60-90 minutes after an intervention such after eating a fat rich meal or consuming exogenous ketones.      
This way of eating has made me feel better in so many ways. I just had such a craving For the texture of cake or bread last night that I had a piece of cake and a sandwich wrap! I knew I had to find a way to satisfy that craving and considered eating a sandwich once a week. Now I can do it without too many carbs. Thanks for taking the time to make it come out right. No more carb BINGES for me.
I was diagnosed of herpes 6 years ago, the doctor said there are no possible cure for the virus. But i never gave up hope of getting cured. i have been living with it taking acyclovir to prevent outbreaks. I have been doing everything possible to get cured, so i never stopped doing research about finding a cure, i came across testimonies of people getting cured by Dr. Okasi herbal medicine. I contacted him through his website: okasiherbalsolution.webs.com, we talked on phone and i discovered he was genuine. I gave it a try and got the medicine from him, took it has he has prescribed and i’m so happy to say i’m completely cured, i went back to my doctor to confirm it. It’s so amazing, a thing of joy. Dr Okasi herbs medicine is capable of curing HSV 1&2 completely. contact him today Email: okasiherbalsolution@outlook.com

Just wanted to share that I made this recipe yesterday. I don’t have a lot of success with loaves so I used my bun top pans and the recipe gave me 12 rolls and a small loaf which I cut into 6 slices for a couple of french toast breakfast treats for me! I used a 1/4 cup measure for the rolls (not packed) and pressed the dough into the round shape. I thought I’d only get 6 actual burger buns but they were big enough to carefully slice in half so I got 12! I baked the rolls for 30 min and the loaf for 60. This will be my go to from now on! Thank you!
Exogenous ketones: Very little is known about the effects of exogenous ketones on cancer. However, as exogenous ketones can also lower blood sugar and elevate BHB they could be helpful by a similar mechanism to the ketogenic diet. Exogenous ketones may even be preferable to the ketogenic diet, as patients can eat a wider range of palatable and calorically dense food to maintain their strength during treatment. One animal study showed that ketone ester supplementation (acetoacetate diester) decreased tumour size and prolonged the survival of mice with metastatic cancer100. 

Maria, I made this bread today – weighed my ingredients carefully and followed instructions. My only adaptation was adding a little liquid Stevia, cinnamon, and raisins right before putting into the bread pan. It raised nicely but fell a little while cooling and is pretty heavy, although tastes great. Any help on what I did wrong? (I’m not sure my water was boiling enough – it was just starting to bubble, not full rolling boil, when I added it. Would that make the difference?)

Ketone esters (BHB-BD) lowers glycogen use30. During exercise, the muscle breaks down stored carbohydrate (glycogen) to provide a fuel for the working muscle. When a ketone ester drink was taken pre-workout, the muscle used far less glycogen compared to when the pre-workout drink contained carbohydrate. The high levels of blood ketones meant that the muscle used ketones as a fuel before needing to use glycogen. Reducing reliance on muscle glycogen could improve performance and decrease the time for muscle glycogen to fully recover between exercise bouts.
The goal of metabolic syndrome treatment is to reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes by controlling the associated problematic health conditions (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, insulin resistance). “A study in which 53 percent of people had metabolic syndrome at the start found that over three years, intensive lifestyle changes—mainly diet and exercise—resulted in the lowest risk of developing diabetes and the lowest risk of developing metabolic syndrome in those who didn’t have it,” Ndumele says. Recommended changes include:

Independent of nutritional ketosis, increased dietary fat intake increases expression of UCP2 and UCP3 in muscle [142], and fatty acids facilitate uncoupling through UCP2 [143, 144], UCP3 [94, 143, 144], and ANT [145]. Given the high fat intake that is characteristic of a ketogenic diet, it is logical to expect nutritional ketosis to increase mitochondrial uncoupling.
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 😀
AMPK is activated through phosphorylation of the Thr172 residue of the AMPK α catalytic subunit [174–176], and this phosphorylation is largely regulated by molecules related to bioenergetic homeostasis including AMP, ADP, catecholamines, adiponectin, glycogen, and insulin. In general, AMPK is activated by energy deficit and induces signaling that upregulates energy production. AMP and ADP are direct byproducts of energy depletion while adiponectin and catecholamines serve as endocrine signals to increase energy production, often in response to energy depletion. In contrast, indications of energy surplus, such as glycogen and insulin, inhibit activation of AMPK. Nutritional ketosis increases the aforementioned factors that activate AMPK and decreases those that inhibit AMPK, suggesting that nutritional ketosis is similar to caloric restriction in inducing a signal of energy depletion.
We’ve now arrived at tip number 16. If you’re still having trouble losing weight, despite following the 15 pieces of advice listed above, it might be a good idea to bring out the heavy artillery: optimal ketosis. Many people stalling at weight plateaus while on a low carb diet have found optimal ketosis helpful. It’s what can melt the fat off once again.
As ketones are the only other metabolic substrate that can fuel the brain, there is a compelling mechanism whereby ketosis could improve brain energy metabolism and therefore improve symptoms of AD. Despite a declining ability of the brain to use glucose, cerebral ketone metabolism is preserved in AD (Castellano2015). This means that ketosis could be used to prevent an energy deficit in the brain. Another possibility is that ketone metabolism decreases mitochondrial damage caused by oxidative stress in the brain52. Individuals with AD tend to have increased mitochondrial oxidative stress, which can worsen brain energy production and increase plaque and tangle formation53.  
In the previously described C. elegans experiments demonstrating mitohormesis, knockout of the NFE2L2 homologue SKN-1 attenuated the increases in antioxidant enzyme activity and lifespan [73], indicating that mitohormesis may, at least in part, be dependent on NFE2L2 signaling. Similarly, a ketogenic diet (Bio-Serv F3666) increased nuclear content of NFE2L2 and expression of its target NQO1 in the hippocampi of rats, all of which occurred after an initial increase in mtROS [96]. This increase in NFE2L2 content appears to have mediated the subsequent decrease in mtROS to a level below baseline [96], thereby further indicating a likely role of NFE2L2 in the induction of mitohormesis during a ketogenic diet.

Carbohydrates ultimately break down into glucose. Many people believe that carbs are bad for people with diabetes. This is not true. Carbs are fuel for the body, so they have to be eaten. You just need to be smart about which ones you eat and how much you eat of them. Picking foods that are high in carbs but have no other nutrition is not smart. Examples of these foods are:
The most common reason that any bread falls is that it needed to bake for longer. That being said, I’ll be perfectly honest – sometimes this keto bread recipe falls anyway, even despite doing everything else right. Fortunately this isn’t a huge deal because it still tastes delicious – IF you baked it for long enough and the center is cooked through.
Not quite sure if I’m doing it wrong but the mixture isn’t liquidy at all, it’s almost dry, it’s a bit difficult to mix and I had to add a tablespoon of water to even mix it. It didn’t come out fluffy looking like yours did, it’s rather dense (I guess from overmixing), but it doesn’t taste bad. I also added a pinch of oregano, cumin and garlic powder.

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!
