Anyone here tried these products: http://www.julianbakery.com/bread-product/carbzero-cinnamon/

Up and not able to go to sleep so was just clicking around the Web thinking about maintenance (not there yet but I'll get there!!!!) and stumbled on this bread.

That looks so good! Thank you for finding that. It looks like we should be able to have it based on the stats and ingredients. I just thought about making french toast with this bread, egg whites, IP vanilla RTD and sugar free Torani syrup. I wouldn't do it every day, but once in a while should be fine. Anyone have any other thoughts on this?

There was quite a bit of discusion here http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/ideal-protein-diet/255854-alternative-product-reviews-19.html#post4408708 aound post 285 or so in this thread. I have not tried it myself. Keep scanning thru the thread there, as people also reported pros and cons both.

Simple answer:
Since it isn't on the sheet and isn't 0/0/0, it would have to wait for maintenance

Wow you have a good memory!

I read those comments on the alternative and the claims on this bread seem to be too good to be true.

Ah, bottom line is true-it's not on the sheet. Follow the sheet-wait for phase 3-4. Good to know it is out there. Thanks for the link and the pull back to reality!

Nevermind that the fat content is right at 30%. Not worth toying with P1 for it.

A guy had a clip on youtube about this. It wasn't about the nutritional numbers.
He was really angry because he and is wife had been using it for a while and the bakery suddenly changed the recipe without notice. It is very expensive and they had ordered their usual large order.
But when it came he said it was just like eating rubber. He showed how he could soak it in water, squeeze it out and it sprung back exactly the same.
He said it would be a lot cheaper just to eat the sponge they use to wash the dishes.
Someone responded to his video and said the chief baker had left Julian Bakery and took his recipes with him.

I don't know if they got straightened out later but sure doesn't sound like they make the bread out of things found in nature.

There are SOME good low-carb breads out there. When I was on Atkins, I had some from a Canadian supplier. High protein/low carb. When I hit maintenance, I'll most likely go back to that.

We actually prefer low carb/high protein tortilla wraps and use them more than we do bread in our house. (I don't use any right now, of course!)

OMG so funny in such a gross way! I think my SIL eats it, will have to show her the video.

Yeah I was sketchy about the bread, but I did order the low carb tortillas from Netrition.com for some of my Phase 3 breakfasts!

I prefer to eat what I have prepared myself. Here is a blog I read a while back about so-called zero carb bread causing insulin spikes: http://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb-bread-another-fairy-tale-bites-the-dust
An experiment that I am tempted to repeat with diet products one day.
