I tried a LOT of recipes for low carb bread, and never found one that was like "real" bread. I now have real bread as a treat VERY occasionally because it seemed like trying all the different recipes was just reminding me what I was missing.

I haven't made the WPI bread in a long long time, but it wasn't spiking me when I quit. It was just the idea of having to always order the WPI & hi-maize 260 - products that aren't available down here in the Ozarks!

I posted a recipe recently for a low carb microwave "bread" made with coconut flour and almond flour. I make this about once a week, double the recipe so it makes two servings. So I don't have a piece of this daily, but I do have it twice a week and I actually quite like the flavor and the texture. It's pretty close to bread-like.

Every once in a long while, I will treat myself to a piece of sourdough bread slathered in butter. I buy a small round, and half goes that night to my son with his dinner. If he doesn't consume the other half the next day, then I might have 1/4 of that small round loaf. But other than that, I don't buy bread for the house because it's just too tempting to have it around. Yes, it was hard to give it up, but I decided that I'd rather have my vision, my toes, and less foot neuropathy if at all possible.

I would like to ask Big Jim:

Did you try wholegrain bread?

It works for me, It has a lower GI, I guess because I can handle it. Some breads may look darker, this does not mean that they are whole-wheat products.

Do you control your portions?

for me, if I eat bread on a daily basis, my BG levels become hard to control.

Have you test that "whole grain" bread,, one hour then two hours after you eat it. I test 5 hours after I eat bread and my blood sugar is still elevated. All grains inflate that blood sugar.

Roxanne is right, Rachel. How exactly do you 'know' you can handle it? Are you testing according to eat-to-your-meter? If you are not, then I think it's time you started.

All grains raise blood sugar because they are basically pure starch, and we learned in grammar school that starch turns to sugar before we ever even swallow. This means corn, wheat, rice, barley, and all the other cereal grains.

We'll expect you to test your breads with the technique we all use, just to make sure we're all on the same page, and that you aren't promoting something from a different aspect than the rest of us. EAT-TO-YOUR-METER.

I use Tumaros low carb wraps. They have different varieties. I like 9 grain with chia variety, which have 5 net or 12 total gram carbs per wrap. I use them for wrap/sandwiches, coat with olive oil and bake in oven for a tostada or broken into tortilla chips with guac or salsa, or use as a pizza crust.

The wraps don't seem to impact my BG much at all.

I buy them a few packs at a time and freeze them. They freeze well.

Welcome big Jim....

I am a 65 year old who was diagnosed as a type 2 over 9 years ago. I was able to control (? I use the term as defined by my doctors) my disease up until last year when my A1c bumped up to 7.9! I worked at my eating and increased my insulin, slow acting, and yet after 6 months of that effort my new A1c was 7.3! OMG it was not working...so I started to research and read and that effort eventually led me here. After posting and reading a lot including Blood Sugar 101 I realized that this LCHF life style might suit me. So I began on 5/1/15! By July my A1c was at 5.8! And I had reduced my daily insulin from 126u to 30u, I am now down to 25u....everything about my health improved include a loss of weight 45lbs or 14% of my body weight! This was and is for me....but one of the most important things I had to learn was I had to completely give up some foods....

Bread, anything with grains, including pasta, nothing with any form of sugar, no root crops, and certain other high carb foods.....at the time it seemed impossible in my mind, but as I developed and extensive list of what I could eat and immediately saw my body adapt and improve, it came across loud and clear...this will allow me to take control of this disease...

Beats losing toes, feet, sight, etc. All can come from blood sugar issues....not to mention and early death due to diabetic related complications.....

Give up the bread and anything that has grain....you do not need it!

This ........... right here.

You're going to have to change some life-long habits, if you want to avoid diabetic complications, which don't care how much you "miss" or "crave" something.

Good luck.

I guess I should try to cut starch from my diet. Thanks for the insight. However, I am worried about fiber. Dietitians say that fiber slows glucose absorption. For example, they recommend to eat whole fruit instead of a smoothy as the later is absorbed faster, which spikes the BG.
What's your take on fiber guys?
