I love making sourdough Bread. I added flax seed, sesame seed, fresh ground whole wheat to make healthier. I am trying to make life changes so no low carb diet. I am counting calories and eating nutrient rich foods and balancing fat carbs and proteins.

Hello. That bread looks awesome. I did not do keto, rather I lost weight by following the glycemic index (GI), which focuses on how foods affect blood sugar. Sourdough bread was one of the breads that had a low GI that I included in my diet. Sourdough, rye, sourdough rye and pumpernickel breads are all low GI breads. Stone ground whole wheat is also another good one (it has to be 100% stone ground to get the low GI benefit) The GI basically shows that high processed foods have a high GI and should be avoided. More natural foods, less processed foods have a lower GI. I eat brown rice, pasta(made from semolina) and low GI breads. You might want to check it out.

Oops, I meant to say that I lost weight by cutting calories and by following the glycemic index.

That looks great! Do you mind sharing the recipe? I wouldn't mind getting back into baking bread :-D

I follow the instructions on the YouTube "How to make sourdough bread master class". I just changed the flour to part whole wheat and added 3 tablspoons of flaxseed meal. Sprinkled it all over with sesame seed.

This bread is especially low glycemic because of the long rise time. Their is no store yeast in it. Just sourdough, water, flour, and sea salt. Most store bought has sourdough and yeast if you read the directions because it is to time consuming to make the authentic way. It definitely helps my gut. I have no gut problem when this is the only bread I eat.
