I used this recipe: A Love Affair With Eyeliner: Paleo Coconut Flour Bread Recipe
*I used dessicated coconut instead of coconut flour
*I used 5 eggs instead of 6

surprisely despite containing ACV.. it doesn't taste sour at all. But taste a bit weird.. should add a bit of sweetener to balance the taste of ACV and salt and the eggy-ness.
ACV is to prevent the bread from tasting bitter from baking soda la.

whenever you add baking soda, you must add something acidic - lemon and lime works too.

but the recipe used baking powder leh, which already contains an acid. so apple cider is just for taste?

it acts like a catalyst to enhance the leavening action of the baking soda.

iirc some people also add it to chocolate to complement the taste or sth.

Quick question on intermittent fasting. I am currently following the 16/8 plan.

Say after 1st day of fasting and eating my meal for the day, if I were to decide to call it a day and not to eat anymore, does my 2nd day of 16h fasting begins after i finish my food? Or I have to wait out the 8h before starting the countdown for my 2nd day's fasting?

Can be a bit flexible - listen to your body and eat when you are hungry...hahah

I actually tried this diet without intermittent fasting initially. First week dropped 4kg but started to plateau on the 2nd week. I'm a pretty heavy dude(130kg) so I guess most of the masses lost were from water loss due to reduced intake of carbs as well as my p90x3 exercise routine of 6 days a week.

I have no idea how to check for whether I am in ketosis as I read online that urine stick test is not entirely reliable.

So I guess the next logical step would be to commence intermittent fasting to be sure that my body will undergo ketosis eventually.

By "eat when you are hungry", do you mean within the 8hrs eating window? I try to keep my fast as clean as possible so I don't even take saturated oil(VCO, butter) during the fast period. Only water, green tea or black coffee.

normally, by following the eat when you are hungry, it is within my 8 hour window. but different people have different needs. just make sure you don't starve. once you go into starvation mode, your body starts to store fats.

as for ketosis. i don't really test for it. just make sure your carb level is below 50g per day will do.
