I want to give all the glory to God of Doctor Zakuza for changing my life by destroying the yoke of Herpes Simplex Virus from my blood. I have lived with Herpes Simplex Virus for two (2) years now, myself and my husband continued to pray to God for divine intervention for my healing, but each time i go for test the result remains positive. I then stopped going for further tests and i was directed to Doctor Zakuza by my friend in Africa and i got connected to the Doctor and i dived at the instructions that was given to me by Doctor Zakuza and he assured me that the virus is going to leave me within 7 days. I believed and had faith in him for i really needed his help. Lo and behold i went for test after 7 days and for the first time, the result was NEGATIVE and all the symptoms had disappeared. I’m so thankful to God for using Doctor Zakuza to heal me. For urgent help of any type, contact Doctor Zakuza now via Email: Doctorzakuzaspelltemple @hotmail. com or text + 1 (740) 573-9483.
Like chili, but with a fried egg on it. This recipe is also made with breakfast sausage patties instead of ground beef or turkey to give it a morning twist (and pack in the protein). Pair this recipe from I Breathe I'm Hungry with your usual favorite chili toppings, like sour cream or chives. (Hint: It's also a perfect recipe to break out for early morning football tailgates.)

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.

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
Lowering your overall intake of carbohydrates is also important for balanced blood sugar, but you don’t need to cut them completely (they're still a crucial source of fuel for your body). Simply swap out refined carbohydrates like bread, white pasta, and candy for fiber-rich, whole-food sources such as whole grains, sweet potatoes, and fruit, which contain a number of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants essential for health.

I’m Jessica Allen from United States.I want to use this medium to appreciate Mr Muir Haro for coming on the platform to shear his experience with Dr Maggi.I have been online looking for a genuine remedy to my illness of 1 year (Hepatitis B) until i read Mr Muir Haro’s post.As we all know these days the truth is rear so i didn’t want to believe Mr Muire Haro until a second taught asked me to.I contacted Dr Maggi as directed by Mr Muir Haro and follow the procedures and everything worked out in a brief.I thought there was no actual cure for Hepatitis B until a little trial convinced me.From my further inquiry and experience with Dr Maggi,he has a cure for what so ever health challenging issue that you might be facing. you can contact him via his mail Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com, or whats-app on +2348148487280.

Would highly recommend listening to Tim Noakes and his trail in Cape Town – he was pretty much the trigger for me to switch to LCHF and now I am starting to educate myself on what I need to follow a path that works for me. The information on Verta is giving me more information to enable me to ask my Dr for what I want – I know this will be an uphill battle and this information will help me avoid getting railroaded into the so called norms. It also give the Dr a way out because then I am asking him to help me go down a certain path that he is not responsible for recommending if it bucks the system.
I Appreciate the great Dr OGDEN for his healing herbal medicine he prepared for me, after being a sufferer of H.S. V 1&2 Disease for 2 years. it was very surprising how i got cured from Dr OGDEN herbal medicine, that quickly cleanse my whole body and today after checking myself in the hospital i was found negatives, dear viewers my doctor personally told me that there was no cure for my Disease at first i thought the world has ended for me but as soon as i got reached to Dr OGDEN herbal medicine, my story was not the same again, i only used Dr OGDEN herbal medicine for just 3 weeks and i was totally cured, no one deserve to suffer for so long,health is wealth my dear viewers no amount of money can cure you except you get the right remedy and be cured completely, today a cure is found and confirm by many others like me, Dr OGDEN also has other cure for HIV AIDS, DIABETES,HEPATITIS B,CANCER,HEART DISEASE,MIGRAINES,COLD SORES,I am going to keep spreading this good news to the whole world, his email address is:drogden391002@gmail.com or his What app Mobil:+2349030382266

More definitive evidence that metabolic syndrome per se predisposes to coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease has been reported. Thus a twofold to fourfold increase in subsequent cardiovascular events has been described in men and women with metabolic syndrome (modified WHO criteria) even in the absence of type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance.234-236 Qualitatively, similar results have been obtained when metabolic syndrome was defined by ATP III criteria237,238 (Fig. 43-9). In a compilation of multiple studies, the presence of metabolic syndrome had a greater impact on the risk for developing diabetes (fivefold) than ASCVD (twofold).22,182,199 In addition, where studied, the rate of cardiovascular events was higher in patients who had diabetes and metabolic syndrome than in individuals with only metabolic syndrome.22,239

The ARC exerts opposing actions on food intake responding not only to leptin and insulin, but also to gut hormones (the most studied are ghrelin and, recently, PYY). The neurophysiological pathways suggest that feeding is regulated by a feedback loop, where the hypothalamus provides the long-term regulatory input to the NTS, which acts as a setpoint (Williams et al., 2001).
Some clinicians[37] regard eliminating carbohydrates as unhealthy and dangerous.[38] However, it is not necessary to eliminate carbohydrates from the diet completely to achieve ketosis. Other clinicians regard ketosis as a safe biochemical process that occurs during the fat-burning state.[35] Ketosis, which is accompanied by gluconeogenesis (the creation of glucose de novo from pyruvate), is the specific state that concerns some clinicians. However, it is unlikely for a normally functioning person to reach life-threatening levels of ketosis, defined as serum beta-hydroxybutyrate (B-OHB) levels above 15 millimolar (mM) compared to ketogenic diets among non diabetics, which "rarely run serum B-OHB levels above 3 mM."[39] This is avoided with proper basal secretion of pancreatic insulin. People who are unable to secrete basal insulin, such as type 1 diabetics and long-term type II diabetics, are liable to enter an unsafe level of ketosis, eventually resulting in a coma that requires emergency medical treatment.[citation needed] The anti-ketosis conclusions have been challenged by a number of doctors and advocates of low-carbohydrate diets, who dispute assertions that the body has a preference for glucose and that there are dangers associated with ketosis.[40][41]
I have tried four times to make the bread recipe with no success, but on my next try I will make sure the egg whites are truly room temp. I have not seen that come up in any discussion but it’s the only thing I can think of at this point. I am an experienced baker, not a novice. I added 1/8 tsp each garlic powder and onion powder and added 1/2 tsp stevia powder. These make the flavor a little more complex and definitely solves the complaint of vinegar or fiber taste. The taste is very good. However unlike some other disappointed bakers on this site, I did not throw away the failed attempts. I took the wet heavy bread from one failed try and tore it into small bits to dry for bread pudding with whiskey sauce. That is DELICIOUS, the next failed batch was sliced very thin and cut in half vertically for “toast points.”. I dried the pieces on a cookie sheet in a 300 degree oven until dry and somewhat brown and crispy. They taste EXACTLY like bagel chips we used to buy. My next batch became seasoned bagel crisps. I still want bread, but these are GREAT! Please don’t throw away failed attempts! There are other uses! I also fried some of my dried cubes in garlic oil for croutons, which were also delicious. I’m still trying, because I think if you can do it, surely I can do it.

This paleo keto bread recipe makes a delicious option for coconut lovers. For a low-fuss loaf, blend coconut flour with ingredients like eggs, coconut oil, and salt — then bake away for a sturdy bread with only 1.3 net carbs per serving. Make this recipe totally nut-free (and more Bulletproof) by swapping almond milk with full-fat canned coconut milk.


Hi there, how many slices you get really depends on the kind of loaf pan you use. I find I get around 20 slices for a bread made in the regular loaf pan (though with this recipe they will be rectangular rather than square) and 12-14 slices using a small loaf pan as described in the post. That’s why I decided to state a portion size – 12 per bread. 1 portion = 0.6 net carbs
At the University of Leicester, scientists have showing that the level of sugar in your blood can affect blood vessels which in turn can have potentially dangerous effects on your heart and blood pressure. Glucose has an important role to play in the normal functions of the cardiovascular system.  Untreated high sugar levels can lead to life threatening illnesses.
No single food, supplement, or workout session is going to be the magic bullet. To lower blood sugar (and keep it balanced for good), start eating a minimally processed diet that contains fiber, protein, healthy fats, and high quality carbohydrates; get regular exercise; make sure you’re hydrated and well rested; play around with meal composition; and experiment with research-backed superfoods and supplements.
Yes you can lose fat on a low carb because it’s just another low calorie diet. How do I know this? I’ve done low carb, (Atkins, etc) high carb, (Slimming Word) moderate carb etc and log my food and was shocked each time to see they were all low calorie. After the initial week or so the rate of fat loss is same as any other diet. It’s calories in calories out. Simple. It’s what some call indirect deficit diet placing silly restriction, rules can eat must eat etc. and of course you lose weight but nothing to do with low carb. It works because it’s a low calorie diet.

Follow the adage, “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a beggar.” While a small bedtime snack of about 100 to 150 calories is OK, be sure supper is at least four hours before retiring for the day. “Eating more at the end of the day may escalate the risk of obesity and diabetes,” explains Wright, author of The Prediabetes Diet Plan. “Evidence suggests you may need to secrete more insulin to regulate your blood sugar compared to eating earlier in the day.”
A stack of pancakes might sound like the opposite of a keto-friendly breakfast, but where there's a will, there's a way. These ones from A Big Man's World are made with the perfect combination of almond flour, coconut flour, and eggs for a result so fluffy, you'll hardly be able to tell they're low in carbs. The blueberries add a touch of sweetness (but they contain sugar, so be careful about the portions).
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.

For those with gummy results, don’t throw away the bread. I found toasting it in oven on 425 works better than toaster and makes the bread edible if your loaf did come out gummy. Also, by accident, I left a piece in oven and preheated oven later for something else I was making and found my extremely crispy toasted bread which made a GREAT baguette! Now I’m making a bunch like this to eat with different creamed cheese spreads! The only real success I’ve had making this bread is in sub or roll form, otherwise, I too experienced some dense/gummy results, moreso, using the coconut flour recipe though.
The sausage for this keto breakfast sandwich is pretty straight forward.  I used half a pound of store bought breakfast sausage.  I formed it into 2 patties and cooked them in my cast iron skillet.  Cook it on medium-high heat and don’t touch it until it forms a crust.  Try to ignore the splatters all over the stovetop, unless you’re OCD like me and you wipe it away while everything is still cooking.  Then wipe again, and again.
I made this bread several times by grinding the jay robb psyllium husks, but never got a good loaf. Then I bought the now brand psyllium husk powder and it worked without turning purple. I did have to weigh everything and cook it about an hour and a half or longer. When I cooked it the first time it sank in the middle. If you don’t have a vitamin or blend tech this is the way to go.

Soooooo fluffy, yummy and versatile! I just made it for the first time. Been making the coconut flour mug bread the past couple of days but this is so less dense. Grilled a couple of pieces and HOLY HELL it’s amazing! Love your site and your recipes. Coconut flour wraps (love wrapping my salad) are next! Neither bread has affected my keto either. I’m also 100% Paleo. Swapping out the cream for ghee in the coconut mug bread works really well!
Inducing ketosis requires severely limiting your carbohydrate consumption, this way you cut off supply of glucose to your cells. In addition to severely restricting carbs, you also need to limit your protein consumption, since protein can be converted into glucose in small amounts. This is the exact reason that most low-carb diets (such as Atkins or the Paleo diet) do not result in ketosis, because they allow a high intake of protein that keeps supplying the body with enough energy that it doesn’t need to burn fat.
The ketogenic is known to improve the metabolic syndrome risk factors [8]. Type 2 diabetes is like a subset of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome can be seen as the umbrella term harboring the conditions necessary for setting you up for outright type 2 diabetes, and a low-carb or ketogenic diet may even prevent the development of the condition.

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.
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.

Nuclear factor erythroid-derived 2-like 2 (NFE2L2 or NRF2) is a transcription factor that has a prominent role in antioxidant signaling and also influences mitochondrial bioenergetics. The NFE2L2 abbreviation is used in this review to avoid confusion with nuclear respiratory factor 2, which despite being a different protein, has overlapping function with NFE2L2 and shares the same NRF2 abbreviation [349]. Although the mechanisms of NFE2L2 signaling are not fully elucidated [350], oxidative stress has a clear role in interacting with cysteine residues of Kelch-like ECH-associated protein 1 (Keap1), which decreases proteasomal degradation of NFE2L2 and thereby allows entry of NFE2L2 into the nucleus to induce transcription [351–355]. Although the influence of PGC-1α on antioxidant enzyme expression is not dependent on NFE2L2 [76, 356], PGC-1α increases NFE2L2 expression [357], indicating that NFE2L2 activity is influenced by perturbations in both energy and redox homeostasis. NFE2L2 primarily increases expression of antioxidant enzymes, including SOD1 [358], SOD2 [358], catalase [358–361], GPx [360], NQO1 [354, 359–362], GCL [359–361], GST [362], GSR [359–361], and Prx1 [352], but also increases expression of proteins involved in mitochondrial biogenesis and bioenergetics including NRF-1, NRF-2, TFAM, cytochrome c oxidase, and citrate synthase [358].
The exact mechanisms of the complex pathways of metabolic syndrome are under investigation. The pathophysiology is very complex and has been only partially elucidated. Most patients are older, obese, sedentary, and have a degree of insulin resistance. Stress can also be a contributing factor. The most important risk factors are diet (particularly sugar-sweetened beverage consumption),[6] genetics,[7][8][9][10] aging, sedentary behavior[11] or low physical activity,[12][13] disrupted chronobiology/sleep,[14] mood disorders/psychotropic medication use,[15][16] and excessive alcohol use.[17]

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.


I used the coconut flour, Now whole psyllium husks (ground by me), and whole eggs…this bread is exactly what I have been looking for, for such a long time. Yes a bit dense with the whole eggs but super-tasty nonetheless. I know if doing egg whites would make a bit lighter. Mine did not turn purple either, and I didn’t order a special pan, just used a regular loaf pan. Also, used coconut vinegar instead as all I had on hand and subbed perfectly. Thank you Thank you for a terrific recipe!
Lately anecdotal evidence has been building that a ketogenic diet can yield transformative results with respect to weight loss: with people taking to social media to share ‘before and after keto’ photos and to stories of ‘how keto changed my life.’ Despite this, concrete clinical evidence confirming that a ketogenic diet is superior to any other diet that creates a calorie deficit is lacking. At the moment the most accurate statement is that ‘the best diet for you is one you can stick to,” a pattern of eating that maintains a small calorie deficit should, over time, lead to weight loss. 
After a period of time, your body becomes adapted to using ketones as fuel instead of glucose. Your muscles begin to learn to convert acetoacetate into a ketogenic substance called beta-hydroxybutyrate, or BHB. BHB then becomes the new preferred ketogenic source of energy, including to fuel all brain activity. What is not needed is expelled from the body as waste.

I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease since last year without hope for cure and i was miserable until this year i was checking on new developments about this virus then i saw how different persons talks about getting cure for herpes through a particular herbalist called Excel so I Contacted him through his email (Excelherbalcure@gmail.com) and he responded with instructions about what he needs to prepare the herbal medication which i did and he sent it to me in LA and after taking the herbal medicine as he instructed i went back to the hospital few months later and the test result shows i,m negative and now i,m completely free of genital Herpes thanks to Dr.Excel for his urgent response, you can call his personal cell phone +1 (859) 429 1007

When you are separating the eggs if you use the method of pouring the egg from one half of the shell to the other you have to be extremely careful because the sharp shell can easily break the yolk. There are tools that you can purchase that will cradle the yolk and let the white run into a separate bowl. Or, you can use your hands. You need to make sure that your hands are extremely clean and fresh from being washed. Break the egg into one hand and let the white slip between your slightly separate fingers. The yolk will settle into your hand and the white will slip off into the bowl.
You need to take your medicine, but sometimes, meds for the other things that ail you can raise your blood sugar. We’ve got a list of them here. If you take one or more of these, talk to your doctor about alternative meds that could control your other conditions without affecting your blood sugar. Remember that everyone is different. Just because you take a medication on the list doesn’t mean that it raises your blood sugar—or, if it does, that it raises it enough to worry about. If your doctor says it’s safe to do so, you can stop taking a suspect med for a few days, carefully monitor your blood sugar, and see if it improves. If you want to be a proper scientist, you should then re-start the med to see if the sugar goes up again. And don’t try this at home! Do it only under your doc’s guidance.

The graph below, also from the Cahill and Veech paper, shows the blood chemistry of a person starving for 40 days.  Within about 3 days, a starving person’s level of glucose stops falling.  Within about 10 days they reach a steady-state equilibrium with B-OHB levels exceeding glucose levels and offsetting most of the brain’s need for glucose. In fact, the late George Cahill did an experiment many years ago (probably would never get IRB approval to do such an experiment today) to demonstrate how ketones can offset glucose in the brain. Subjects with very high levels of B-OHB (about 5-7 mM) were injected with insulin until glucose levels reached 1 mM (about 19 mg/dL)!  A normal person would fall into a coma at glucose levels below about 40 mg/dL and die by the time blood glucose reached 1 mM.  These subjects were completely asymptomatic and 100% neurologically functional.


I don’t usually cook making things from scratch. Glad I did this to replace high carb bread! Made my first bread plain this am in microwave using all the ingredients with 1 sub – olive oil no butter. Worked Great! Toasted it and had it with sliced egg, bacon and mayo instead of butter. Nice and firm and the taste, Fabulous! Very satisfying. Thanks for sharing this and making it so easy for us guys that don’t cook from scratch. Appreciate it much 🙂
As is in the case of GABA, the intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) hypothesis works against the hunger-suppressive role of KD: it has been demonstrated that the hypothalamic ROS increase through NADPH oxidase is required for the eating-inhibitory effect of insulin (Jaillard et al., 2009); moreover it has been demonstrated that there is a ROS-dependent signaling pathway within the hypothalamus that regulates the energy homeostasis, and that activation of ROS-sensitive mechanisms could be sufficient to promote satiety (Benani et al., 2007). On the other side, KBs decreases mitochondrial production of ROS by increasing NADH oxidation in the mitochondrial respiratory chain (Maalouf et al., 2007).

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.

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.


A sustainable exercise program, for example 30 minutes five days a week is reasonable to start, providing there is no medical contraindication. (If you have any special concerns in this regard, check with your doctor first.) There is a beneficial effect of exercise on blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and insulin sensitivity, regardless of whether weight loss is achieved or not. Thus, exercise in itself is a helpful tool in treating metabolic syndrome.
Bailey, We’re so happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe! Regarding having bread fall, did you cook it for the full amount of time the recipe calls for, and did you cover the top with foil for the last 15 minutes? If so, there might be an issue with your oven’s calibration (you can get an inexpensive oven thermometer to check this). Another tip is to let your eggs come to room temperature first. Another factor is the altitude at which you’re baking; if you’re at high altitude, you might need to slightly adjust the oven temperature and bake time. The other thing to remember is that there will usually be a little bit of fall to most keto breads (in fact, every keto bread we’ve ever made) because keto flours lack gluten and are naturally quite dense; however, you can see in the photos, we still got a good rise on this loaf. I hope these tips help!
