    • Cloud Bread is grain free, low-carb and high protein bread-alternative

    • Made from eggs, cream cheese, cream of tartar, and sweetener

    • According to experts, the health benefits are impressive

    • Has 1g of carbohydrate but same amount of protein as regular bread

    I saw this recipe on Youtube several times. Many different versions although with too much proteins for the version of LCHF diet I am on right now.

    It would seem that the cloud bread isn't as healthy as first thought  Shocked 

    “Just because a recipe is grain-free or low-carb doesn’t automatically make it healthy, or mean that portions don’t matter,” Sass explained.

    “In cloud bread, the grain flour is primarily replaced with eggs and cream cheese, and the latter isn’t a food I recommend upping your intake of,” she said, since cream cheese is high in saturated fat.

    Moreover, while cloud bread may have fewer calories than whole grain bread (about 40 calories per slice versus 80), it lacks many of the nutrients in the real deal—like fiber, which has been shown to help lower blood sugar, cut cholesterol, and reduce colon cancer risk. Whole grains offer a slew of other health benefits, too. They deliver essential minerals and vitamins, aid digestion, help reduce belly fat, even protect your teeth and gums.

    It must be true because a dietitian said so Wink 

    Then again she also said this 

    And if you’re thinking about cloud bread as part of a no-carb diet, you may want to rethink the diet altogether, Sass said. Carb-free diets often backfire, she explains, because they tend to leave people hungry. And when you’re hungry, you’re more likely to turn to unhealthy fats—which can prevent weight loss, or worse, trigger weight gain.

    Well folks it looks like it's not aimed at us Low Carbers there must be some out there following a zero carb diet  Shocked Shocked Shocked

    "Moreover, while cloud bread may have fewer calories than whole grain bread (about 40 calories per slice versus 80), it lacks many of the nutrients in the real deal—like fiber, which has been shown to help lower blood sugar"

    Whole grain bread and the fibre contained within has been shown to lower blood sugar??? My meter lied to me!!!! freakout

    In an ideal world it would be nice to re-educate these 'dietishuns' so they can understand what 'Healthy' whole grains actually do to a diabetics BG levels but the sad thing is they already DO get it but to hell with doing the right thing eh! No

    I doubt the average dietitian would know a blood glucose meter from a gas meter Paul Rolling Eyes  let alone the effects of healthy whole grains on BG  affraid
