The market is full of unlikely claims about low carb versions of bread, pasta and chocolate. Interestingly the Smart Carb #1 bread is baked on whole grains, yet it is claimed that only 1 gram out of 13 grams of carbs are digested. Last I knew, you couldn't make bread with just flaxseed meal, rye meal, gluten, water, yeast and salt. To produce any rye bread with acceptable volume, not more than 20 percent dark rye flour, 30 percent medium rye flour, and 40 percent light rye flour can be used in the formula.
As a diabetic or low carber you had better educate yourself with the lists of ingredients and know what needs to go into something before you blindly buy it. 152DennisMarch 8 2013the ingredients are readily available by reading the label or going online. Is the Omega Power Bread your own original recipe as you say, or are you perhaps purchasing 44 lb. That said, the Omega Power Bread sent to me by Issac Sander in New York seems to “pass” the low carb test as far as I am concerned.
Issac never answered the question about whether he buys this as a mix and adds his own water and yeast or whether he indeed did come up with the formula himself for his diabetic grandmother.
This is a video of an interview I did with Arnold Diaz of FOX5 TV in New York regarding Carb Krunchers breads.
160ambyellenApril 4 2013I don't do well on wheat, but I do eat the Julian's Bakery coconut flour and almond flour breads. The United States food and drug monstrosities have become a very sad state-of-affairs not only for us but for most of the rest of the world, let alone the abuse that the diabetic and low carb communities have been dealt. I have tried, as possible, to put the pages in chronological order as it is easier to follow in the beginning. Seriously, I doubt that Gary Collins would be the final word on anything though he touts himself all over the internet as a “Former FDA Special Agent”. Seems to me that if the Pure Wraps papers are brown and the Paleo Wraps papers are white, which ones are really bleached and which ones are not? Are we to believe that it takes about an hour for chlorine to dissipate out of water (which is after all put into water to kill bacteria) and that Gary Collins just happened to have some 9 to 10 month old Pure Wraps papers stored somewhere and sent the paper to be tested? I have no idea the relationship Gary Collins and Heath Squier share but I know this-Gary has put himself and his reputation on the line and it really does not look all that good.
Additionally and lastly Gary, you make yourself look foolish allowing Heath Squier to manipulate your puppet strings. Heath Squier filed a Defamation lawsuit against me on October 18th, 2013 and I believe he knew at the time it would never fly. One of the reasons Heath was not granted his initial Temporary Restraining Order is that the judge felt it would not only stifle my right to free speech but that the subject matter was certainly important and in the public’s interest, and particularly important to public health.
As Dan said above; Heath Squier should be made to pay back the millions he and his company bilked from diabetics and the low carb community and that would take a class action lawsuit against him.
One of the chickenshit things Heath and his attorney did was contact my internet provider to have me take down his Julian Bakery logo along with a couple of other images. One of the chickenshit lawsuit charges was that I interfered with the Julian Bakery “contractual relationships” with WHOLE FOODS.
Doug Varrieus later goes on to say: “Julians, [sic] you should be ashamed of yourselves making a statement like this one [Obviously many diabetics can eat our bread such as the person who wrote this blog who is a Type 2 Diabetic but other diabetics cannot]. Heath goes on to say “We do SELL OUR SMART CARB BREAD TO 10,000+DIABETICS WHO EAT IT EVERYDAY without any problems. And then, low and behold 8 months later on December 11th, 2010 in saunters good old Johnny-come-lately Mr. Fast forward nearly 3 years to July 18th, 2013 to a hurried and ridiculously pithy interview with Gary Collins where Heath pleads ignorance. I can say that as a diabetic the breads Heath was selling to you were, in no uncertain terms, POISON.
So…if in early 2010, Heath had over 10,000+DIABETICS who ate his bread every day how many diabetics were eating his breads daily by the time I finally had them tested? The only thing that I have ever given Heath Squier credit for is his marketing ability and he did market his products well.
Another of the other many chickenshit lawsuit charges filed against me was that I was costing Heath $200,000 per month in revenue.
So I reiterate that the scenario laid out by Julian Bakery with a chart showing Matt Besley’s blood sugar response could not happen as it is stated with Besley injecting ZERO insulin.
Jimmy Moore who is not a diabetic did an n=1 experiment with 2 slices of Julian Bakery bread. Heath has stated all over the internet for years that he was going to start posting diabetic responses and to this day he has never followed thru with his statements.
In closing, and yes everything ends at some point, I would like to thank you all again for your support.
Not surprisingly his blood sugar went straight up, even though he ate the bread with coconut fat and cheese.
Amazingly that guy blamed the cheese, and claimed that the minimal amount of lactose was the problem.
They will say that experiments by one man proves nothing, that everybody has to test every new product for themselves to see.
White bread flour must be used in the formula so enough gluten can be formed to hold the gas during fermentation, and to form the structure of the texture. The ingredients used to make these breads are naturally low carb (although, ironically not marketed as such by Julian's).
Eenfeldt because I wanted my blog to be formatted like this one-including that you can sign up to follow any particular page’s posts and so it is very close.

Is there a bread that can be made at home that is truly low in carb, or is that a pipe dream? There is an excellent recipe using psyllium husk powder and either coconut or almond flour. Eenfeldt who has supported me unerringly for the past 1? years and to everyone who has supported me by either emailing, calling, or making comments on other sites. Heath was talking about working with a lab and nutritionist (I assume his mother Barbara as he keeps calling her that). Eenfeldt and Jimmy Moore did their first (respective) negative Julian Bakery Posts in 2011 and almost 2? years before I came along.
Matt Besley (see more on Besley below) who to date is the only Type I diabetic to have ever made testimony to the old Smart Carb breads- now how do you suppose he made it to this blogspot? As we by all means are a COMPANY THAT IS TRUSTED by over 100,000 CUSTOMERS nationwide and MOST OF THEM ARE DIABETICS or customers that are on low carb diets. Eenfeldt has given this post the title GIVE JULIAN BAKERY WHAT THEY DESERVE this is how each of you, individually, can cost Heath Squier and the Julian Bakery a little money and it is so easy.
Bread made from grains turns into glucose in your gut, raises your blood sugar and can lead to weight gain. I've made homemade low carb paleo bread from almond and coconut flours before, but the Julian's is much more convenient. I could make my own coconut flour bread but it's so time consuming and I have work and school and kids and now that I'm following this diet I have to make all meals in my tiny kitchen instead of swingin through the drive-thru at McDonalds **Quivers at the thought of all the crap I used to eat** so gross. My husband recently had to give up gluten as well after being diagnosed with late stage, neurological lyme disease. Stephen Phinney’s in their 2012 book The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance. He's always loved his SAD white bread diet, without suffering from obesity, and never liked my low carb, grain-free foods.
They wrote this shorter but content-rich book as a follow-up to their spectacular 2011 book that goes into great detail about why low-carb diets are optimal entitled The Art And Science of Low Carbohydrate Living. Now, he can eat his precious sandwiches on grain-free bread and avoid all that inflammation.
She used a software program to develop the ingredients in order to make the product low carb.
Although the Performance book was specifically written for athletes seeking to maximize the way they fuel their activity level by learning to become keto-adapted which then allows them to access stored body fat as their primary fuel source, the section in there on testing blood ketones as a means for attaining the proper level of nutritional ketosis was the most exciting thing I’ve seen in a long time for your average, everyday low-carbers to know exactly where they stand in their efforts to live a carbohydrate-restricted lifestyle for optimal weight and health benefits. I don't want to see the company totally tarred and feathered, because they are the only company that sells a pre-made, grain-free paleo bread product!
3.) Before I began testing his breads and commenting on blogs pretty much anything anyone had been saying was only anecdotal.
In case you missed my first two updates, go check out Day 1-30 and Day 31-60 to read more about how this testing has gone so far.Although I saw great success in 2004 losing 180 pounds and coming off of three prescription medications on the Atkins diet, the reality is I was 32 years old when that happened. As a working woman (2 jobs, 60 hrs a week) supporting a very ill young husband, I really appreciate their almond and coconut flour breads, which before were a great hardship to make from scratch for my picky, sick husband.
Sodium ions are basic in reaction while the chloride ions are acidic and they are together responsible for the acid base equilibrium in the body. Now that I’m 40 and all the associated metabolic and hormonal changes that come with that, it no doubt is requiring me to make appropriate adjustments to the way I live my low-carb life.
Unfortunately, the human body is much more complex than that and requires a bit more caressing and personalized attention to respond the way we want it to.Since beginning this n=1 experiment testing the concept of nutritional ketosis on myself starting on May 15, 2012, I have noticed a myriad of positive signs that have shown me that this is precisely the thing that I need to be doing for myself right now. But as most of you know I’m not one who is willing to give up easily and I trudged forward with doing this latest n=1 confident that something somewhere along the line is finally gonna start working for me again. And the results thus far have been so staggering that I shifted from doing this for a mere 90 days to now pushing it to a full 180 days to see where it will take me. I generally use 2 oz of either the butter or the coconut oil or 1 oz of each when cooking this recipe. Crack open the number of eggs you desire directly into the pan and add the salt, parsley (or whatever other spice you desire) and cheese if desired. Country scrambled the eggs and other ingredients in the pan with a spatula until all the contents are fully mixed and cooked to your liking. Place eggs on a plate and add the stevia-sweetened chili sauce (LOVE this stuff!) along with 3 Tbs dollops of sour cream. YUMMY!It’s very important for you to make sure you are getting the high-fat versions (no TURKEY bacon or sausage!) of these meats for maximum ketogenic effects. The brand of sausage I use contains 13g fat and 5g protein per patty–a spectacularly high amount of fat (117 of the 140 total calories) compared with the protein (just 20 calories). This is what you’re looking for when looking at food choices if you desire to eat this way.
And, no, I’m not so obsessed about getting all the fat and everything on my plate in my mouth. But the bottom line right now is I’m eating pretty darn tasty food that keeps me satisfied completely without hunger with all of those fabulous tangible and intangible benefits that I listed above.
I’ve read some blogs and forums talking about my experiment stating that I must be gorging myself on cream cheese and butter to get my fat levels that high.
That amounts to 84% of calories from fat which falls perfectly in line with the levels I’m seeking to achieve here.
It should go without saying at this point, but keeping carbohydrate intake low and protein intake moderated to the adequate amounts that are right for you along with a very high-fat intake is the key to making this happen.
Before we look at those, I want to share a few things that happened in this 30-day cycle for context.
You’ll recall I was put on antibiotics due to a urinary tract infection that I got in late June.

I continued to take the antibiotics for an entire month (UGH!) which extended into the first 9 days of this update. Additionally, I was using some Caladryl (Benadryl and calamine lotion) for a few days at the beginning of this cycle on that pesky poison oak along my arms and legs picked up while visiting Tom Naughton in early July. I have been measuring every single day in a fasted state first thing in the morning when I wake up.
If the numbers are in a good range at that time of the day then I know I’m probably hitting my goals for the rest of the day. In Day 91-120, I’ll be measuring both morning and evening blood ketone readings so you can see the difference from these two different points in the day.
I tried finding some real butter or other real fat sources to offset the protein I ate–not to be found. Oh well, it just meant that I needed to be all the more vigilant about my nutritional intake the rest of the month. Interestingly, you’ll see my blood ketones start to tail off in the final four days while I was attending the 2012 Ancestral Health Symposium. Isn’t it ironic that at this conference dedicated to healthy Paleo living that I actually ended up having a negative impact on my experiment?
I wanted to see if there was ANY correlation between measuring urine ketones and blood ketones.
Using the numbers correlating with the color changes on the Ketostix package, I tested in the morning at the same time I tested blood ketones and received the following results:Do you see any kind of correlation? Needless to say, I’m not going to be reporting the results of my urine ketones for the remainder of this experiment. I suppose if you can’t afford to test your blood ketones that urine ketone testing is an adequate proxy. But for accuracy purposes, blood ketones will be far superior and highly recommended even if you can only do it once a week. Assuming you are in nutritional ketosis because your urine ketone sticks turn pink or purple would be a mistake.The big thing people are looking at with my n=1 of nutritional ketosis is weight loss.
I heard from so many people at AHS12 who had seen me at either PaleoFX in March or on the Low-Carb Cruise in early May stating what a difference they could see in my body composition and color. After I heard it from a dozen different people, it finally sunk in just how well this has been working for me. It’s been nice fitting back into some shirts and pants again that have been too snug. This is all progress in the right direction and I’m pleased to see the progress happening as a result of being in nutritional ketosis. That Chinese buffet experience put on three pounds which took three days to come back down again after returning home from vacation.
You’ll notice I had a steep weight loss in the first week after being back around my food again. That’s an important part of doing this as I discovered while I was away last week in Cambridge, Massachusetts for four days during AHS12. I gained nearly four pounds at this Paleo nutritional health conference despite eating pretty darn low-carb.
I test simultaneously with blood ketones in the morning and in Day 91-120 I’ll also be testing my blood sugar in the evening when I test blood ketones. I started taking a blood glucose stabilizing supplement called Glycosolve (made with berberine shown in this study to lower blood sugar levels) that has helped me manage my blood sugar. It’ll be interesting to see if my higher blood sugar levels are only showing up in the morning (Dawn Phenomena maybe?) or if the nighttime testing will also be higher.
This really isn’t proving anything except what impact nutritional ketosis is having on me and me alone. If you’re curious to see how doing this will work for you, then you need to do your own testing.
Whether you start off testing your blood sugar, weight and urine ketones or if you wanna take the plunge and get a blood ketone meter (don’t forget you can get a FREE NovaMax Plus ketone meter here), I encourage you to test, test, test! Empowering yourself with information about your health puts you light years ahead of most everyone else out there who has abdicated responsibility for their own health by letting their doctor tell them what to do on EVERYTHING regarding their health. Hopefully by now you realize that YOU are the only one who has a truly vested interest in being as healthy as you can possibly be.
Take that bull by the horns and never stop being interested in becoming better and better on a daily basis. YOU ARE WORTH IT!I’m grateful to everyone who has followed my nutritional ketosis n=1 experiment so far and I look forward to sharing my continued progress in Day 91-120 next month.
I’d love to know what you think about my progress at the halfway point, so leave me your feedback in the comments section below. And if you’re testing your blood ketones, let us know what impact being in nutritional ketosis is having on your weight and health. My strength and exercise have not been diminished and I’ve purposely not increased them (in fact my exercise frequency has gone DOWN by design so as not to confound the results).
