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?
Get checked by your doctor for infection or other illness that could be causing your blood sugar levels to rise. When your immune system is compromised, hormones are released by the body that can increase the production of glucose for healing. For some individuals, this can explain unexpected high blood sugar levels and may require antibiotic treatment to help the body heal.

Though the hunger-reduction phenomenon reported during ketogenic diets is well-known, the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms remain uncertain. Ketosis has been demonstrated to exert an anorexigenic effect via cholecystokinin (CCK) release while reducing orexigenic signals e.g., via ghrelin. However, ketone bodies (KB) seem to be able to increase food intake through AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) phosphorylation, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and the release and production of adiponectin. The aim of this review is to provide a summary of our current knowledge of the effects of ketogenic diet (KD) on food control in an effort to unify the apparently contradictory data into a coherent picture.
For the eggs, beat the 4 eggs in a medium sized bowl until whites and yolks are combined.  Heat a medium skillet (I used the same skillet as the pancakes) over medium-low heat.  Add the butter and then the beaten eggs. Let the eggs cook until the edges begin to set.  push the eggs with a rubber spatula scraping the bottom of the pan.  scrape occasionally to get large folds of soft scrambled eggs.  When the eggs are just set and still a little runny, remove from the heat.  
Brain glucose and KB uptake was investigated in rats subjected to mild experimental ketonemia induced by 2 weeks on the KD or by 48 h fasting. To test this, researchers developed a carbon-11 labeled AcAc (11)C-AcAc for PET use. They found in rats that after 10 days of KD (11)C-AcAc brain uptake increased up to 8-fold, an increase comparable to those measured after 48 h of fasting (Pifferi et al., 2008).
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?

I have been looking for a good keto bread recipe. I have tried a few others with a “meh”. This one is a WOW! Prior to going Keto, I loved to cook and bake, it is my main hobby. But after going Keto, I have had to learn a whole new way of cooking. I followed the recipe to a T knowing how to work my way around the kitchen and the only difference is the fact that mine turned out purple. It is clearly the psyllium. Thank you so much for a wonderful and easy recipe for a great bread!
Finally, choose a healthy fat to include with your breakfast. These choices might include coconut oil, avocado oil, grass-fed butter, ghee, or bacon fat. You will probably be cooking your protein source and vegetable in your chosen fat source, but you might also use it in a sauce. When adding flavor to any recipe (not just breakfast recipes) the sauce can make or break the dish. Here are a few sauces you might choose to include:
The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) plays a central role in the control of energy balance. Many molecules produced by the GIT exert hunger or satiety effects on the brain. Ghrelin is a peptide produced mainly by the stomach's oxyntic cells that stimulates ghrelin secretion in the hypophysis and has some neuroendocrine activities. However, its orexigenic properties are the most relevant to us and ghrelin is the only known peripheral orexigenic hormone (Date, 2012). Cholecystokinin (CCK) is a peptide produced mainly in the duodenum and jejunum that acts on the vagus nerve and directly on the hypothalamic nuclei. CCK is an anorexigenic factor and it reduces food intake, meal size and duration (Murphy et al., 2006). Three other related hormones are pancreatic polypeptide (PP), amylin, and peptide YY (PYY). PP is a peptide produced by the endocrine pancreas in relation to the caloric content of meals, and it reduces food intake both in rodents and humans. Amylin is a peptide co-secreted with insulin; its main effect on food control is a reduction of meal sizes and food intake (Murphy et al., 2006). Peptide YY (PYY) is produced in the gut and is similar to PP. PYY is stored in intestinal cells and released into the circulation as PYY3−36, a truncated form of PYY. The release of PYY3−36 is dependent on a meal's caloric and fat content (Veldhorst et al., 2008). The glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is produced by the cleavage of pro-glucagon gene in the intestine. It acts as incretin at a pancreatic level, promoting insulin secretion and as neuro hormone on hypothalamic nuclei, inducing satiety (Valassi et al., 2008).
Weighed my ingredients…used Jay Robb Psyllium ground down to half the amount exactly…used almond flour from nuts.com….used All Whites 100% Egg Whites. Bread fell about one minute after I took it out of the oven. Do you cool yours out of the pan or in it? Does that matter? Could that be the problem? Or could it be my vinegar? Have had it a few months…does it get old? Help!!! I promised my husband if he let me spend all this $ on ingredients I could give him a nice loaf of bread for sandwiches! So disappointed! But determined!
I am so frustrated. I have made the rolls a dozen times and they vary in results but always come out acceptable. I truly enjoy them. However, no matter what I do I cannot get the darn loaf to work! I am specific with ingredients, I have tried leaving the loaf in the oven to cool, I have tried taking it out. I make sure the water is at a rolling boil. I tried different sized pans…just doesn’t work. The only difference I can think of is the loaf pan. I am wondering if I were to just form the dough into a loaf without the restriction of a pan, would it come out better? It wouldn’t be as pretty but it might work.
I would like to point out that the metric conversion of 3/4 cup to 90g coconut flour as stated in your recipe is incorrect. Should be 84g per package labeling (Bob’s Red Mill). Unfortunately I made my first batch with 90g of coconut flour, and it was definitely not “pourable”. More like scoopable. I will try again with correct amount but thought I would point so you can update the recipe. Thank you!
The root cause of most cases of metabolic syndrome can be traced back to poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle. In some cases, a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome has also been assigned to those already diagnosed with hypertension or with poorly controlled diabetes. There also seems to be an association with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, polycystic ovarian disease, and some cancers. A few cases are thought to be linked to genetic factors.
How many calories should I eat a day? A calorie is an amount of energy that a particular food provides. Consuming more calories than needed will result in weight gain, consuming too few will result in weight loss. How many calories a person should eat each day depends on a variety of factors, such as age, size, sex, activity levels, and general health. Read now
Hi Maya, I’m new to your website and I’m anxious to try out this bread recipe. I’m helping my 27 year old son lose some weight. He’s on some pretty potent medication that has caused him to crave carbs thus putting on quite a bit of weight over the past few years. Since I’m his caregiver and also a Certified Nutritionist, I’m looking for some healthy alternatives to make his transition a bit easier and he loves bread.
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.
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..
Look no further for keto breakfast recipes: This may be the only list you’ll ever need. There’s something for everyone here, including paleo, egg-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and Whole30 options. (Only enjoy coffee or tea in the morning? We got you covered there, too.) Best of all? These recipes are all under 10 net carbs per serving — and most are much lower than that.
Humans have always relied on ketones for energy when glucose sources were scarce (i.e. no fruits available during winter). It is a normal state of metabolism. In fact, most babies are born in a state of ketosis. However, with abundant sources of carbohydrate, people rarely access ketosis and it becomes a dormant metabolic pathway.Our ancestors likely had frequent periods of time when high carbohydrate food wasn’t immediately available. For this reason, our bodies are amazing at adapting to burning of ketones for fuel.
Perturbations in bioenergetic homeostasis induce signal transduction that leads to upregulation of mitochondrial capacity and antioxidant defense. Three key enzymes involved in the sensing of these perturbations and the subsequent induction of signal transduction are AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and silent mating type information regulation 2 homologues 1 and 3 (SIRT1 and SIRT3).

Most people who have metabolic syndrome already have a closely related condition called insulin resistance, which is when the body stops responding to insulin (a hormone produced in the pancreas). After the food we eat is converted into a type of sugar called glucose, insulin is what enables the glucose to enter the body’s cells and be used as energy. For someone who is insulin resistant, however, the glucose builds up in the blood, setting the stage for damage.


I just made this bread today and MAN, IS IT GOOD!!!! I realized I used salted butter and pink sea salt and maybe that gave it an added boost too. It was super hard for me to try and fold in the almond flour mixture to the egg whites, but now that I watch the video, I see I could have mixed the food processor part more first. I was so scared to collapse my egg whites. I also see your bread was the same size as mine, so I must have done ok. I will say again, WOW it is sooo good! I already ate two pieces with butter, just because. oops! Good thing it was only 1 carb each. =)))) Thank you, thank you!

Although the hunger-reducing effect of KD is well-documented, its main mechanisms of action are still elusive. The global picture is complicated by the contradictory role of ketosis on anorexigenic and orexigenic signals (summarized in Figure ​Figure4).4). Ketones (mainly BHB) can act both orexigenically or anorexigenically. In the orexigenic mechanism, it increases the circulating level of adiponectin, increasing brain GABA and AMPK phosphorylation and decreasing brain ROS production. The anorexigenic mechanism triggers a main normal glucose meal response, increasing circulating post-meal FFA (thus reducing cerebral NPY), maintaining CCK meal response and decreasing circulating ghrelin. It can be postulated that the net balance of the contrasting stimuli results in a general reduction of perceived hunger and food intake. More studies are needed to explore the mechanism of potential beneficial effects of KD on food control.
Given the prevalence of this category of illness, and the insidious nature of the conditions, an intervention with minimal side effects (vs. drugs) such as ketosis could be used as a first line intervention before attempting treatment with medication in some cases. However, there is still some way to go before research can conclusively address this possibility, individuals considering the diet should do so with full medical supervision.

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 just made this bread and although mine looks more dense than yours, it is good. I was going to make it again using a little less water to see if I can get more rise, but then I read your comment about you not eating this bread because your keto bread is more weight loss friendly. So I shouldn’t eat this since I’m trying to lose weight? I’ve been keto-adapted for over a year, but I’ve only lost 62 pounds:( Thank you for your recipes and all of the research you do! Don’t think I could stick with this way of eating without being able to cook delicious food!
I was recently diagnosed with diabetes which I had had uncontrolled for an estimated seven years. I have done a lot of research and while there is a lot of diabetes information available, little was helpful for whatever reasons – too simplistic in nature, didn’t answer hard hitting questions, or didn’t apply forward thinking scenarios. This article is one of the best I have read because it is both clear and concise and givens you all of your essential important information in a single place – something everyone needs. Even after all of my research, I still learned a couple new things reading this article. Excellent reference.
In addition, as early as in 2008, the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare examined and approved advice on LCHF within the health care system. Advice on LCHF is, according to the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare’s review, in accordance with science and proven knowledge. In other words, certified healthcare professionals, who give such advice (for example myself) can feel completely confident.
I found your recipes and was eager to try them! This morning I made the almond and coconut flour bread, blueberry muffin and the pancakes for family breakfast. They were all delicious!! I was amazed at how moist they were. However, even thought the bread was light, it did not achieve the height shown with the recipe. I need advice on how to achieve a higher loaf. My family was delighted at the healthier version of our Sunday morning breakfast. Thank you, Maya, for the time and effort spent in perfecting and sharing your recipes.
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.
If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin.
On the contrary, in the brain, as mentioned above, the increase of AMPK activity leads to higher food intakes. But the effect of AMPK in the brain is more complicated; mice lacking AMPKa2 in pro-opiomelanocortin neurons develop obesity, while the deficiency of AMPKa2 in agouti-related protein neurons results in an age-dependent phenotype. Thus, the conclusion is that even while AMPK is a regulator of hypothalamic functions, it does not act as a signal for energy deficit or excess (Claret et al., 2007). However, the picture is more complex than this (Figure ​(Figure3);3); BHB induces AgRP expression while increasing ATP and inhibiting AMPK phosphorylation (Cheng et al., 2008). Moreover, Laeger and colleagues have recently demonstrated that under physiological conditions BHB decreases AMPK phosphorylation and AgRP mRNA expression in GT1-7 hypothalamic cells (Laeger et al., 2012).
am from north Carolina, United state. I caught genital herpes from my ex boyfriend who never had any symptoms. I have had it for 4 years ,and it has affected my life. I have told my new boyfriend who I trusted about it and I have never had a bad reaction towards it but also seeking for alternative for me.

I might sound weird, awkward and nasty to most people but only the few ones will have a listening ear to what I am telling the world….. I contacted HERPES VIRUS since 2015 but I was recently cured from my HERPES VIRUS middle of last year April 5th 2018 by DR.MAGGI. I met with Doctor MAGGI himself online when I read a post comment of someone testifying on how she was cured from her HERPES VIRUS by this same doctor MAGGI. I collected the herbal doctor’s contact number from the testifier and I contacted the herbal doctor, I told him everything and how I have been suffering from HERPES VIRUS since 2015…. He told me I shouldn’t be worried, that he is going to prepare an herbal medicine cure for me which he actually did and sent to me through UPS delivery service company. I got the medicine and I started using the medicine as I was told by the doctor and I followed the prescription and the dosage,,, after 14days of which I was told to use the herbal medicine, he asked me to go to the hospital for check up….. In fact my God in Heaven can bear me witness on this, behold! I was detected HERPES VIRUS FREE and ever since that day I have been going to several test and my result is always HERPES VIRUS FREE. I was cured from my HERPES VIRUS by doctor MAGGI, I was so happy and I vowed to keep on sharing my own testimony to the entire public and world to know that HERPES VIRUS has a cure with the help of Professor Doctor MAGGI herbal medicine you can get rid/cure of your HERPES VIRUS. He is such a powerful and great African herbal doctor…. I love him so much and may God continue to bless him and flourish his good works. His contact number is:+1(306)993-9253, you can also add him up on what-sap with the same number,Or you can send him a message to his email address: maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com. God bless! you all.
Eat 15 g less carbohydrates at your next meal. While skipping meals is not a healthy option for individuals with high blood sugar, decreasing the number of carbohydrates consumed at the next meal can help force your body to use the excess sugar. Check your blood sugar an hour after the meal and if your sugar level has decreased but is still high, decrease the next meal by 30 g of carbohydrates.

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


Even without the gluten of a traditional tortilla, this keto bread recipe creates a soft and pliable alternative perfect for all your favorite taco fillings. Almond and coconut flours keep carbs to a minimum, while xanthan gum holds everything together. Each tortilla tallies up to 2 net carbs, and takes only five minutes to cook. No Bulletproof substitutions needed — just avoid eating xanthan gum too often.
