I'm so sorry..i didnt at all think you were disrespecting me!!
i dont know a thing about hashimotos...i do know i see it talked about alot on the forums i'm in on facebook and the coaches have EVERYONE on 20 and under. but i do agree and say it often...you do HAVE to do whats right for you!
I started cold. no info. no research done..just woke up one morning and started. when my son started the accepted was under 50 grams NET carbs a day. after a couple months the accepted went to under 30 net. and thats what i started with. then people were buzzing about under 25 total, then it went to 20. And when i saw the video from the doc who started the whole net is ok thing..with him explaining WHY it wasnt ok, why you needed under 20 total, why net was not ok, and apologizing for his mistake, and it went to what is generally accepted, thats what i did. Some still insist 50 net is ok...they do complain about never losing and they say they dont feel good, but its their choice.

I get the whole no more than 20 gms total carbs...but there are health issues that are NOT helped by carb totals that low - like Hashimotos. I started doing keto with the total of less than 20 gms. Then I found out this was bad for my condition. I am NOT disrespecting you as a professional baker - in fact JUST the opposite! In my next life, that is my DREAM!! All I am saying is that every person has to learn what works for their body and for their health.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!

Happy Birthday Celle!!!! YAY!!

OK heres my thing on the flours. Please remember that i'm a professional baker...i do these calculations ALL DAY.
I also follow the now recommended limit of 20 TOTAL, not net, carbs, per day.
ONE OUNCE...which is a VERY small amount, of almond flour has 6 grams of carb and 6 grams of protein. with a protein limit of 60 g a day, thats a big chunk of both carb and protein for a very small amount.
Regular flour isnt even in the equation,,,its forbidden.

trust me...i do this for a living. I mail keto baked goods all over the country...
and i never said i felt guilty..i just said i would only use them as a very occasional treat...
I have to really limit what i make (i will be making myself a small, 2 serving birthday cake on Monday. complete with buttercream. and half will take most of my carbs for the day....i will have ZERO vegs..and it will be well worth it!!! But would i do it often? nope. once a year for that one. and i will admit to having a chocolate chip cookie when i make them for orders. I cant make myself a whole batch because i'd eat them all.
i make my own sugar free chocolate chips because the ones in the store have malitol. they take a while to make, and are really good..so i have to stay out of them, too..LOL!!

I would have to respectfully disagree that almond flour has a "TON of carbs". Compared to white flour, which has over 90 gms of total carbs in a cup (and practically NO fiber to bring down the net carbs), almond flour has about 20 gms of total carbs and fiber that brings it down to about 12 net carbs. When you use almond (or coconut) in a baking recipe for a sweet or savory treat, you are still getting WAY less carbs than you would using white flour, which has basically no nutritional value. At least there is some fiber in almond flour. I DO have to agree that this should not be a daily part of a keto diet, but I do not feel at all guilty having a treat using almond and coconut flour.

PS: Happy Birthday fellow Aries - NIGHTSKYSTAR! Actually celebrating mine today!

Thank you for the info. I think it does make a difference to limit these flours.

I'm a professional baker and have a small keto line, plus i do other special diet items. You can NOT interchange these flours. and neither performs like regular flour.
That said..baked good should really only be used as an occasional treat..almond flour has a TON of carbs in it...as does coconut. i try to make anything i do without the flours, if at all possible (i make pancakes with only cream cheese and eggs...my pizza crust on the rare occasion i make it i only use mozz parm and eggs. this saves me a TON of carbs. I do the broadly accepted limit of 20 gm total carbs, so its hard to fit things in with the flours.
That said..next week is my birthday, and i'll make a 2 serving birthday cake. its a huge splurge for me!

Almond is a LOT less absorbent than coconut, so they are not interchangeable without altering the rest of the liquids in a recipe. My favorite blog for Keto recipes is by Carolyn Ketchum (https://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/). I have YET to try a recipe of hers that wasn't amazing!

Everyone is going to think I'm in Australia or something because all the links I've posted lately have all been from there but I'm a proud Canadian! I digress...

This lady is in New Zealand and goes on to mention that 90 almonds go into a cup of almond flour and that it is difficult to have a hard and fast rule on how much of these flours to sub for the other in recipes. On other pages she has an abundance of recipes!
