I am a little confused about beating the egg whites with a hand mixer. I used 12 large egg whites as the recipe says. However, I did not add cream of tartar as I have none. I have been beating these egg whites for almost 40 minutes with an electric hand mixer and I still have not yet come to the consistency as your photo shows for stiff egg whites. So my questions are, is this amount of time normal for beating the egg whites? And what amount of time would you recommend if this is not the normal amount of time?

In essence, it is a diet that causes the body to release ketones into the bloodstream. Most cells prefer to use blood sugar, which comes from carbohydrates, as the body’s main source of energy. In the absence of circulating blood sugar from food, we start breaking down stored fat into molecules called ketone bodies (the process is called ketosis). Once you reach ketosis, most cells will use ketone bodies to generate energy until we start eating carbohydrates again. The shift, from using circulating glucose to breaking down stored fat as a source of energy, usually happens over two to four days of eating fewer than 20 to 50 grams of carbohydrates per day. Keep in mind that this is a highly individualized process, and some people need a more restricted diet to start producing enough ketones.
The goal of the ketogenic diet is to keep you in this fat-burning metabolic state of ketosis. This is achieved by following a very low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that includes only moderate amounts of protein. Foods like bread, cereal, processed snacks and sugary drinks are therefore off the table, while fattier foods like butter, grass-fed beef, fish and also non-starchy veggies take center stage, providing the majority of daily calories (as much as 70–80 percent).
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.
I just made this today. If I lived in London and could hug you, I would! You have NO idea how many recipes I’ve tried for almond flour bread and they never come out right or taste very good. This recipe is amazing! Since I can’t use psyllium due to an allergy to it, I used ground flax seed meal instead. OMG, this bread is delicious! I used the small loaf pan like you did and it came out perfect. It rose above the pan and is a perfect loaf. I let it completely cool, cut it with a bread knife and it did NOT fall apart, something so many of these type of breads do. AND it does NOT taste eggy which has been another problem I’ve dealt with. The loaf is so pretty! I can’t wait to experiment with different spices or herbs in this bread. Another plus for me is that since the slices are smaller than regular bread, it helps with calorie control when putting things on it for a sandwich. I have a strong wheat intolerance and don’t do well with grains in general so I’m always looking for alternative recipes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You just made my day!!!!
I made dressing/stuffing out of this bread! I cut the bread into slices, then cut the slices into cubes. I put them on a metal pan and into my toaster oven on low temperature and let them crisp up. It takes a good while, but they DO get crisp! Then I have my croutons for the dressing. The dressing I made was delicious. I think the next time I make the bread to use for croutons I’m going to add onion powder and sage to the mixture before baking so the croutons will be seasoned some before I begin making the dressing! Love this bread! It is the most like wheat flour bread that I have tried! Thanks Maya!

Additional research has raised the possibility that metabolic syndrome adversely affects neurocognitive performance. [70] In particular, metabolic syndrome has been blamed for accelerated cognitive aging. [71] Patients with mental illnesses also face increased cardiometabolic risk due at least in part to socioeconomic factors such as greater poverty and poorer access to medical care. [72, 73]
Ketosis could benefit patients with PD, as ketones provide an alternative energy source to the brain and also have antiinflammatory effects. Several research groups have shown that the ketogenic diet can have manifold beneficial effects in animal models of PD: alleviating motor symptoms, reducing inflammation, decreasing neuronal loss 61 ,62. Also, an in vitro model of PD (neurons in culture treated with a drug called MPTP) was used to demonstrate that addition of 4 mM of BHB was protective against neurodegeneration52. An early study of the ketogenic diet in PD patients reported very promising results: patients improved their clinical PD ‘score,’ as classified by factors including tremor, balance and mood 63. Whilst there are promising results, further clinical studies are required to demonstrate if the ketogenic diet or exogenous ketones (either alone or in combination) are a tolerable and efficacious intervention for PD.            
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.
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.

Saturated fat: A type of fat found in abundance in butter, whole milk, ice cream, full-fat cheese, fatty meats, poultry skin, and palm and coconut oils. Saturated fat raises levels of heart-threatening LDL cholesterol in your bloodstream. It can also interfere with your body’s ability to absorb blood sugar easily. Limiting saturated fat can help control your risk for heart disease.


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 WhatsApp him on + 1 (740) 573-9483.

Some research suggests that ketogenic diets might help lower your risk of heart disease. Other studies show specific very-low-carb diets help people with metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. Researchers are also studying the effects of these diets on acne, cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and nervous system diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Lou Gehrig's disease.
In type 2 diabetes the body has an increasingly harder time to handle all the sugar in the blood. Large amounts of the blood sugar-lowering hormone insulin are produced, but it’s still not enough, as insulin sensitivity decreases. At the time of being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, people usually have ten times more insulin in their bodies than normal. As a side effect, this insulin stores fat and causes weight gain, something that has often been in progress for many years before the disease was diagnosed.

Eat more fruits and vegetables. According to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines, a person on a 2,000-calorie-per-day diet should eat 2.5 cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit a day. This amount will vary depending on how many calories you need. Be sure to choose a variety of fruits and vegetables. Different fruits and vegetables have different amounts and types of nutrients.


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.
My name is GARY JOE from New York. I was in trouble when doctor told me that I have been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ALS… I though about my Family, I know my Family will face a serious problem when I’m gone, I lost hope and I wept all day, but one day I was surfing the internet I found Dr. MAGGI contact number. I called him and he guided me. I asked him for solutions and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, now everything is fine, I’m cured by Dr. MAGGI herbal medicine, I’m very thankful to Dr. MAGGI and very happy with my hubby and family. email him on MAGGIHERBALCENTER@GMAIL.COM OR contact his number:+1[305]697-6952
I just made it using all the the optional ingredients but I didn’t have a food processor so I whipped/mixed everything by hand. One thing I noticed is that the top of the bread cracked unevenly. Could I have over fluffed the egg whites? Maybe creating an artificial cut in the middle could solve that next time? It rose very well and nearly doubled in size, though the size is still a bit small for my liking. I will most likely use 1.5x the amount next time. It smells great and I’m about to chow down on this!
This is the advice that people with type 2 diabetes received a hundred years ago. Even in Sweden, with the high fat-Petrén diet that included fatty pork cuts, butter and green cabbage. And when they start eating this way today the same thing happens as it did in the past. Their blood sugar levels improve dramatically from day one. This makes sense, as they avoid eating what raises blood sugar.
Typically jam-packed with fruit and sugar, your average smoothie bowl isn’t a keto-friendly way to start the day. This chia smoothie bowl by Fat for Weight Loss, though, uses ingredients like coconut cream, avocado, chia seeds, and desiccated coconut for healthy fats, along with blueberries, erythritol, and a little vanilla for that smoothie bowl sweetness. At six grams of net carbs per serving, this sweet, creamy breakfast bowl is a great option when you’re craving something sweet. Top with whatever seeds your heart desires, coconut, and low-sugar fruit, like strawberries.
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.
I never believed but i have to give a try because i was desperately in need of cure to the deadly disease that i have been living with. So i contacted him and we discussed how to get the cure and Dr maggi told me he cured with herbal medicine which i will order for and it will be delivered to me. Which i did what he wanted and to my greatest surprise the herbal medicine was delivered to me at my address which i gave to him, with instruction on how to apply was also given to me by Dr Maggi. Then i started to use the herbal medicine, so after four weeks of using the herbal medicine, i saw physical changes and went for test at two separates hospitals and i was totally cured, i am here to say thanks to you again Dr Maggi for saving me from the deadly herpes disease. Anyone with such disease can also contact Dr Maggi through his EMAIL: drmaggiherbalcurehome@gmail. com. You can also CALL/WHATSAPP him on +1(562)469-3086.
The longest studies/follow-ups for ketogenic diets are about 10 years long and have shown it to be safe [3, 4, 5, 6]. Studies that carefully keep people in metabolic wards to strictly monitor food intake and biomarkers are always short because they are very costly and laborious. Moreover, most participants are not able or willing to participate for a long time in a study that supervises food intake around the clock. For these reasons, these kinds of studies are always of short duration, a few weeks maximum.
I just made this bread and it is beautiful! I cannot believe how well it rose-finally a nice rounded full loaf of bread! BUT…the bottom sticks and in order to get it out, I really have to abuse it, which causes some deflation and a not-as-pretty-as-it-should-be loaf. Ended up with a hole on the bottom that got stuck in the pan. I am using a coated aluminum pan with generous amount of coconut oil. Any tips? I put this loaf back in the oven on a cookie sheet to firm up the crust areas that are damaged. Thanks!
Thank you so much for your recipe. This is the best keto bread recipe I have come across. There is only one suggestion it’s better to use medium size 8X4 inch pan to get perfect size slices. There is one question., can we replace coconut flour with almond flour completely? If yes what is the quantity for almond flour in this case? Thank you once again.

Triglycerides are a common form of fat that we digest. Triglycerides are the main ingredient in animal fats and vegetable oils. Elevated levels of triglycerides are a risk factor for heart disease, heart attack, stroke, fatty liver disease, and pancreatitis. Elevated levels of triglycerides are also associated with diseases like diabetes, kidney disease, and medications (for example, diuretics, birth control pills, and beta blockers). Dietary changes, and medication if necessary can help lower triglyceride blood levels.

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.
Add yeast and maple syrup (to feed the yeast, see notes) to a large bowl. Heat up water to 105-110°F, and if you don't have a thermometer it should only feel lightly warm to touch. Pour water over yeast mixture, cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for 7 minutes. The mixture should be bubbly, if it isn't start again (too cold water won't activate the yeast and too hot will kill it). 
Not so anymore. Thanks to the rising obesity epidemic in young people, kids and teens are getting these conditions — and they're getting them earlier than ever before. Some estimates say that nearly 1 in 10 teens — and over a third of obese teens — have metabolic syndrome. And a study of 375 second- and third-graders found that 5% had metabolic syndrome and 45% had one or two risk factors for it.
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.
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:

In addition to increased mitochondrial demand and mtROS production, there are several other commonalities in the mechanisms through which exercise and nutritional ketosis induce adaptive signaling. Exercise-induced activation of AMPK is greater when the exercise is performed in a glycogen depleted state [209–211, 382, 383], and exercise-induced activation of p38 MAPK [315] and PGC-1α [277–279] occurs at least partly through β-adrenergic signaling. Although changes in NAD+ and NADH are difficult to measure and are complicated by conflicting results, exercise is also likely to increase sirtuin activation by increasing the NAD+ to NADH ratio [402].
Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection cant cure. I’ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. i read people’s testimonies online on how they were cured of herpes, hiv, diabetics etc by Dr. Ogba Kosu, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with hiv for the past 7 years but Dr. Ogba cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes and they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he cast spells to restore broken marriages and a good luck spells to prosper and excel in life. Contact Dr. Ogba Kosu on: drogbakosu@gmail.com
Last month, it was my birthday, the anniversary of my late husband’s death, and a time when I experienced another loss in my family. I was in total depression also because the gentleman I had been seeing for nearly a year decided to cut ties with me. All this happened at the same time, and my heart was broken. Then I found Dr Oniha ’s website, and all my luck turned around – especially because the master did a wonderful spell of Love for me and my dearest companion, who decided he had made a terrible mistake by leaving me. We even took a much-needed vacation. It meant the world to me, and I have you to thank for it Dr Oniha. his email is ONIHASPELLTEMPLE@GMAIL. COM. You can can also call his mobile number +16692213962. Contact Dr Oniha for any kind of help you need. JUDITH.

He got them by himself and prepare the natural herbal cure and sent it to me with a tree roots branch to chew which i did for two week according to him. completely a month the pains the sore were gone, my skin were glowing which i haven’t experience in long long time…my doctor said what happen to me is a miracle but i never told him i had herbal medication from Africa because he wouldn’t approve it. my advise to all herpes patience is you should seek for the right herbal remedy and put an end to that virus.contact this herbalist today on Email Excelherbalcure@gmail.com or call his phone +1 (859) 429 1007
Also that’s absolutely wrong information about microwaves. Breast milk is not microwaved because of the uneven heating which can cause ‘hot spots’ which will lead to your baby’s mouth being burned. It does nothing to the nutrition of the milk itself or the proteins. There is a lot of fear mongering about microwaves and most people don’t understand the basic principle of how it works. It’s like people who blindly say there are ‘chemicals’ in food not realizing that everything is a chemical compound, even drinking water. So don’t worry 🙂
Ok I will try this with the physillium since no sub will work. 🙂 I have a Q though-I read that too much physillium may interfere with how medicines work-my son is on 5 seizure meds, and we are going keto to help with his seizures. This looks like a good and tasty bread to replace his beloved loaf…what would you say is a safe amount for him to eat daily or weekly? Any resources on daily physillium allowances for kids so I can adapt his servings? THanks! 🙂 🙂
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).
Greetings to you all, I want to tell you all about how i was cured of HERPES disease by a Doctor called Akhide Ojugo. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES, when i saw comments of people talking about how Dr. Akhide Ojugo cured them.

These fluffy, colorful pancakes from The Big Man’s World satisfy any cravings for a decadent, comfort food breakfast without totally sabotaging ketosis. Made with almond flour and coconut flour instead of the conventional stuff, these pillowy cakes are much higher in fats, protein, and fiber than your average stack—and at 2.1 grams of net carbs per serving, much lower in carbs. Did we mention they’re also vegan and take just 10 minutes to whip up?

Hepatitis B-Genital herpes wasn’t easy But as time has passed, I have slowly come to terms with my Hepatitis B-Genital herpes, status and try to tackle it with a positive attitude. In mid-2015 I became quite ill. I developed persistent flu-like symptoms, headaches, a nagging cough and sores that wouldn’t heal. My skin felt as if it was crawling, my legs ached, I felt nauseous and lost weight. Then exhaustion hit. It was an indescribable tiredness and no matter how much I slept I never felt rested. In 2015 I was hospitalized when my CD4 count nosedived to 86 (Hepatitis B, Herpes-negative people have a CD4 count of between 700 and 1,000; a CD4 count of below 200 is considered dangerously low). It was a terrible time. There are lot to say about Dr. Larry but i can only mention few right now, this man is a very great, good and powerful. Dr. Larry, all thanks to him for given me a second chance, if you are out there passing through any problem, you can contact him today on his email via: larryherbalcenter@gmail.com or what-sap him now on +2348163807836), and i know that he will help you also.
Thanks for this inputs. 20 years ago I gain 17 pounds a year for 5 years. I was healthy but my dr told me start diet, any diet just come back in a month I want to see you start loosing… I started Atkins and lost 7 pound in a month. She was checking my progress every six months and checking my condition. I lost 64 pounds in 3 years. Now I started eating out of control. I am eating healthy but too much… I gain 40 pound back after 20 years. Now I will start again my Atkins to take off 30 pounds…

Ketosis is deliberately induced by use of a ketogenic diet as a medical intervention in cases of intractable epilepsy.[12] Other uses of low-carbohydrate diets remain controversial.[14][15] Carbohydrate deprivation to the point of ketosis has been argued to have both negative[16] and positive effects on health.[17][18] Ketosis can also be induced following periods of fasting (starvation),[19] and after consumption of ketogenic fats (such as medium chain triglycerides[citation needed]) or exogenous ketones.[20]
I am very happy today to share this amazing testimony on how Dr. MAGGI the herbal doctor was able to cure me from my HIV Virus with his herbal medicine. I have been a HIV patient for almost 8 months now and have tried different methods of treatment to ensure that I am cured of this terrible disease, but none worked for me, so I had to leave everything to God to handle as I was a Christian who had faith that one day God would intervene in my life, yet I felt so sad and desperate as I was losing almost everything due to my illness, A few months ago while I was surfing the internet I saw different recommendation about Dr MAGGI on how he have been using his herbal Medicine to treat and cure people, these people advice we contact Dr. MAGGI for any problem that would help immediately, I contacted Dr MAGGI and I told him how I got his contact and also about my disease, after some time Dr.MAGGI told me to have faith that he would prepare medicine for me a medication of herbal herbs, he told me I would take this medicine for a few weeks and also asked for my home address so as possible for him to submit the drug for me, so my good friends after all the process and everything Dr MAGGI actually sent me the medicine, I took it as I was directed by Dr. MAGGI, after a few weeks passed, while on Dr.MAGGI medication I began to experience changes in my body, I had to call my doctor at the hospital for some blood test after test my hospital doctor told me that I was no longer with the Hiv virus and my blood is pretty good, I can’t even believe this, Friends well today i am Hiv Negative and i want everyone to know that there is a cure for Hiv for those who will contact Dr MAGGI after reading my testimony, you can kindly contact Dr. MAGGI on Email:Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com or call/whatsap him +2348148487280,or you can also check him on his Webs:https://drmaggiherbalcenter.webs.com .God bless you all.

A reduced availability of dietary carbohydrates leads to an increased liver production of KBs. The liver cannot utilize KBs because it lacks the mitochondrial enzyme succinyl-CoA: 3-ketoacid (oxoacid) CoA transferase (SCOT) necessary for activation of acetoacetate to acetoacetyl CoA. KBs are utilized by tissues, in particularly by brain. KBs enter the citric acid cycle after being converted to acetyl CoA by hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (HBD), succinyl-CoA: 3–CoA transferase (SCOT), and methylacetoacetyl CoA thiolase (MAT). Modified from Owen (2005), Paoli et al. (2014).
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.

Have you heard all the buzz about the keto diet and want to know more? Did a friend tell you they’re “in ketosis” and you got interested? Here’s everything you need to know about ketogenic diets and being in ketosis for fat loss, brain function, satiety, and performance. Editor’s Note: This article is being updated … Continue reading The Keto Diet: Next Big Thing or Dangerous Fad?


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.

I read through aaaaallllll the comments for research before I made this bread, one thing I noticed when making your protein buns was – when I used 2 teaspoons of baking powder they deflated when exiting the oven. When I reduced the BP to 1.5 teaspoons, they turned out fine. I made two batches with 2 tsp of BP – they turned out like raisins, and 2 batches with 1.5 tsp of BP and they turned out fine. No one posting mentioned adjusting the baking powder – perhaps that would help in this recipe since deflating is a problem, maybe there is too much chemical loft for the non-gluten structure to handle?
Like many variables in diet, health, and disease, it behooves us to look beyond the bumper sticker explanation. I want to highlight a couple of posts I wrote, to attempt to provide a little more nuance and understanding to the subject: “Ketosis — advantaged or misunderstood state?” Parts I and II. Part I follows below. I’m hoping to write more on the topic in the not-too-distant future since there’s been a number of intriguing papers published recently (certainly since 2012). But I also wanted to bring these back into focus in light of the information I’m seeing more of on the interwebz. (You can also visit the Ketosis section of the site to view more articles on the subject.)
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.
Looking back on my earlier posts on ketosis—and explaining what I eat, for example—makes me both chuckle and cringe. I remember how bizarre the diet seemed to many readers and the general public at the time. I also remember digging into the literature and learning, for example, that my alma mater, Johns Hopkins had been using the ketogenic diet to treat pediatric epilepsy for almost a century…and being so embarrassed about admonishing that patient I saw in my residency.

Ceejoy – Please don’t give into fear mongering. There is nothing wrong with the microwave. It is 100% safe to use. If you still want to not use one, that’s your choice but please don’t spread incorrect information and try and get people to be fearful of something that is safe. If you have any legit studies to prove this (recent ones) please share those.
All of the factors associated with metabolic syndrome are interrelated. Obesity and lack of exercise tend to lead to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance has a negative effect on lipid production, increasing VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein), LDL (low-density lipoprotein – the "bad" cholesterol), and triglyceride levels in the blood and decreasing HDL (high-density lipoprotein – the "good" cholesterol). This can lead to fatty plaque deposits in the arteries which, over time, can lead to cardiovascular disease and strokes. Insulin resistance also leads to increased insulin and glucose levels in the blood. Excess insulin increases sodium retention by the kidneys, which increases blood pressure and can lead to hypertension. Chronically elevated glucose levels in turn damage blood vessels and organs, such as the kidneys. 
Metabolic syndrome is defined as the presence of a cluster of risk factors that are associated with a significantly higher risk for cardiovascular disease in the general population. The definitions for metabolic syndrome from different expert groups are somewhat different but generally include measures of adiposity, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and abnormal fasting blood glucose levels. Insulin resistance is the dominant but not the only condition underlying the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome. The different components of the metabolic syndrome are independent risk factors for the development and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD); hence, patients with metabolic syndrome are significantly more likely to have CKD. Conversely, metabolic syndrome is highly prevalent in patients with ESRD, including among those undergoing maintenance dialysis.
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.

i want to use this means to thank Dr.obor for getting me cured from deadly disease which almost took my life,i have been suffering for genital for genital herpes since 2014,and take different drugs and non could get me cured,i keep wasting money on drugs till i contacted dr.obor who get me cured with his herbal medicine and make some gain back my life, i cant talk less of you sir, you are indeed a great man and i thank you for everything you have done in my life, i also want to tell everyone reading this and suffering from this disease to contact dr.obor on his email omiawaleherbalhome@gmail.com and i promised you will testify also.

The only reason to continue to give this bad advice is the lingering fear of natural fat. If you’re going to avoid fat you need to eat more carbohydrates in order to get satiated. But in recent years the old theory about fat being dangerous has been proven incorrect and is today on its way out. Low-fat products are simply unnecessary. So this reason doesn’t hold up either.
Brittany, Thank you so much for leaving a comment! Without being there in the kitchen with you, it’s difficult to say what the issue was; however, I can definitely help you troubleshoot…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!
