It’s really important to first reduce your carb intake from unhealthy sources such as sugary drinks, pizzas, cakes, biscuits, chips, white bread, fruit juices and smoothies. And it is a good idea to get your limited carbs from healthy high-fibre carb foods, such as pulses, nuts, vegetables, whole fruits and whole grains, as well as unsweetened milk and yoghurt.  
I live in the UK so nothing but wind and rain at the min 😋. I don't think I did anything different from your recipe apart from having to grind my own sesame seeds as I can only find 1 brand of flour here and it's mega expensive. I used my stand mixer with dough hook too so will make sure I'm not over processing next attempt. My eggs were XL but on a size chart I found they seemed to be a large in weight. I also used a nice high sided bread pan lined with parchment paper so can't see that being any issue. Will let you know how the next one goes x
Hearty and healthy, Mikey's clean ingredient list delivers a tasty gluten-free and paleo option.

For decades we’ve been told that fat is detrimental to our health. Meanwhile low-fat “diet” products, often full of sugar, have flooded supermarket shelves. This has likely been a major mistake, that coincided with the start of the obesity epidemic. While this doesn’t prove causation, it’s clear the low-fat message didn’t prevent the obesity increase, and it is possible it contributed.

When made as per instructions and sliced 1cm thick, the bread yields 20 slices. As we use high quality (mostly Australian) natural ingredients, the cost is higher than normal bread (and a lot more nutritionally dense too). It has similar nutritional makeup to a protein bar (which are usually around $5 each) so quite good value for a high protein low carb snack or meal!
I have made this twice now using almond flour, coconut flour and whey protein isolate powder only (so no sesame or flax) and it has turned out wonderfully both times, if a little flatter than yours. The second time I realised I had to powder the psyllium husks, though, which I had neglected to do the first time! I don't think it made a huge difference, though. The second time I also dehydrated the loaf in the oven after baking, as advised, for 30 minutes at 100 C, and it did help make it a little less moist, so thank you very much for that tip 😊 One more question, please -- if I use instant yeast instead of active dry yeast, what should I change? Should I skip the first step (dissolving the yeast in sugar/yacon syrup/honey and proving in the oven with the light on) and mix it directly into the dry ingredients? (I did read your note in the blog post that said this, but I just want to make sure, I don't want to mess it up! 😊 ) And will I still need honey or sugar or yacon syrup? Thanks again!

You probably hear the most about low-carb eating for weight loss, but for some people, the approach could also help optimize their health, says Schmidt. “Research shows that women who are obese or have metabolic problems [may] do better hormonally on lower carbs,” says Schmidt, pointing out that other outcomes of the diet can include better sleep, mental clarity, and increased satiety.

“Their original size low-carb tortillas contain only 50 calories each with three net carbs and a whopping 11 grams of fiber! For women, that's over 40 percent of your recommended daily value for fiber in one serving,” says Harris-Pincus. Use these to make pizza or soft fish tacos. “They also make amazing breakfast wraps stuffed with eggs, black beans, cheese, and roasted veggies,” she says.
“Joseph's Bakery offers fabulous low-carb pitas and flatbreads to make wraps, pizza, and much more," says Harris-Pincus. "Their flax, oat bran, and whole-wheat pita breads have only 60 calories each with six net carbs, four grams of fiber, and six grams of protein.” It's a substantial portion for such a low carb count, too. “I like to stuff them with a smear of hummus, turkey, and veggies,” she says.

Phase 2: Balancing. In this phase, you continue to eat a minimum of 12 to 15 grams of net carbs as foundation vegetables. You also continue to avoid foods with added sugar. You can slowly add back in some nutrient-rich carbs, such as more vegetables and berries, nuts, and seeds, as you continue to lose weight. You stay in this phase until you're about 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) from your goal weight.
Whether you're cutting back on carbs for a specific diet (such as Keto, Paleo or Atkins), or you're a diabetic trying to manage your blood sugar levels, one of the hardest things to give up when you're on a low-carb diet is bread. It's comfort food at its finest. But the good news is there are more and more low-carb bread options in grocery stores and recipes that rely on wholesome ingredients and deliver on taste.

Basic no-cook plates: Away from a kitchen or not wanting to cook for a meal? Sliced deli meats, cheese, and vegetables with dip make an easy lunch. Or boil up a dozen eggs and keep them ready in the fridge to grab for lunch or snacks. A can of tuna or salmon, with some full fat mayonnaise and vegetable crudités, is a simple lunch. Smoked oysters, sardines, herring with raw veggies or a salad are other easy no-cook choices.
