My Wife purchased a loaf of "Healthy Life" Keto bread. It is labeled on the front "0g net carbs per slice."

On the back it uses some very bizarre math as an explanation:

9g total carbs per slice

- 8g dietary fiber per slice

- 1g Allulose per slice

= 0g Net Carbs per slice

( Allulose is a new sweetener that does not metabolize to glucose)

It is also 30 calories per slice. It has 0g of sugar.

What dou you think? Deceptive? Healthy? Keto friendly?

You weigh 340 lb? My brother weighs 370 lb he collapsed from kidney failure at age 65 on July 22nd, He spent a month in the hospital has been in rehab ever since for physical therapy. Doctor says he needs to lose 150 pounds or he'll never make it to 70. A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. His BMI is 45.

    I've weighed more than 425 but no longer do. Obviously, I did a lot of things wrong in the past. I can't do anything about them and can only work on what I have today. Honestly, I never really thought I'd live this long. Males in my family rarely live to retire. If I had, I'd have made different choices, but all I can do is make better decisions in the future. I'm better today than yesterday and will be better tomorrow.
    Some people are addicted to drugs, some to gambling. I was addicted to food. Luckily for me, I had jobs that kept me very active my whole life until a few years ago. When I retired, I should have cut my intake but didn't. I went from being active and walking three miles or more most days to watching tv 12 hours a day.
    I plan on being 300 sometime next year.

    I never expected to live past the age of 24. Now I am paying for all of those transgressions.

    Did it taste good? I'm not a sandwich person, except for grilled cheese and those are on the back burner for a few months.

    This guy performed the due diligence on Aunt Millies Bread and it's the real thing. 1 actual carb per slice.

    Although i never did it, my doctor said he ordered bread made in the supermarket bakery, made fresh without all the carbs. I don't know how the cost compares though. One drawback though is, it doesn't stay good very long because there is no preservative.

    That is my problem with all bread. I probably only have one sandwich a month and when I want one the bread is bad. Now, to have a sandwich I must go to the store. That ruins the convenience of a sandwich.

    It has zero net carbs because it has 9 grams of insoluble fiber.
    I eat Aunt Millie's 1 carb bread it has 12 grams of carb and 11
    grams of insoluble fiber. Eat two or three slices a day you will
    produce award-winning results in the regularity department.
    I .mean I am proud and astounded some days. LOL

    .

    This is why God invented freezers. Throw the entire loaf in the freezer when you get it and take it out one slice at a time. When I was a kid my mother bought 10 loaves of bread at once and threw them all in the deep freeze. We always had good bread on hand.

    Checked on the Aunt Millie's website and its not sold anywhere near where I live.

    Of course, I do live in the high-carb southeast US.

    Okay, pretend for a moment that I'm an idiot, and someone explain to me why a gram of insoluble fiber counts as -1 grams of carbohydrates.

    Your body doesnít digest it. It passes through your bowels.

    Itís not negative one by itself. Itís 0. It counts as a carb but then gets subtracted to get to net carbs.
    The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
