  • I can’t eat wheat flour barley etc. Make your own bread is the only thing to do. It’s not only bread manufacturers r putting crap in.

  • If only people would read the Bible.

    ““Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. You are to eat it during the 390 days you lie on your side. Weigh out twenty shekels of food to eat each day and eat it at set times. Also measure out a sixth of a hin of water and drink it at set times. Eat the food as you would a loaf of barley bread; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement for fuel.” The Lord said, “In this way the people of Israel will eat defiled food among the nations where I will drive them.””
    ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭4:9-13‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    The context is important.
    I sure would not eat it.

  • You seem like a cool dude, but, your contention that soy is going to mess with your hormone levels is b.s.. You can’t just cherry pic a study or two that supports the premise of your video and then just ignore the overwhelming majority of studies that indicate the opposite.

  • The Bible is all allegory, Eastern mystisym, hidden meanings, it is not to be taken literally, it is about you, you! The kingdom of God is within you. Yeshua said why do you call me Lord and not do what I say? “When the eye is single, the body will be filled with light”, he’s talking about the pineal gland, “cast your net to the right side”; the right side of the brain, “take no thought”; leave your cares, meet me in the upper room; again the right side of the brain in meditation.

  • Thwre are so many Keto Cookbooks out there. What are the best for beginners? Easy to read, simple, not a lot if complicated ingredients, is what I prefer. By the way, I love desserts but haven’t had any since Keto.

  • Hi Bobby. What do you think of Sprouted Spelt Bread? We buy “Berlin Natural Bakery” Whole Grain Sprouted Spelt Bread.
    We’re concerned about blood sugar spikes but we love bread.

  • Hey Bobby you should make an updated version of this because Dave’s bread is absolutely terrible now; they changed the ingredients.��

  • Can’t I just eat the bread because I like it? I never have paid attorney to the name although the name helps me remember that’s the bread I like!

  • Thomas, you mentioned your wife has Hashimoto’s, I have 2 close people in my life that do as well. Can you do a video on eating healthy and for balance with Hashimoto’s?

  • I love is Ezekiel bread. It’s great with French toast and avocado toast. ���� Thinking too deep about this bread. The nutritious benefits far out ways it’s advertising message.

  • In the bible Ezekiel bread was a curse and a punishinv agent from God and it was made with excrement as an ingrediant. Ezekiel 4:1217. It was for the poor prophet to eat to atone for the sins of Isreal. And as punishment he was made to eat meat. He argued with God saying he was raised undefiled by flesh. So God allowed him to make it with Cow dung instead of human dung. It was a horrible punishment. And an interesting thing that it says that after eating it and drinking water they woul still be craving food. I didnt know about stevia, actually all of this.

  • Great info but only the white collar professional class can make practical use of it. Regular blue collar working people can’t afford to spend $5-$6 for a loaf of bread. He says nothing about the cost factor. I guess because, like most upper middle-class members of the aristrocracy, he doesn’t seem to have a clue that the majority of Americans can only afford the cheap processed, chemical-saturated crap mass-produced by the corporate food conglomerates. Most of our mass-produced food ought to be labeled toxic but we’ve got to keep the profits flowing to the corporate fat cats who literally own and run our government. Having a nation populated with healthy, educated people making enough money at their menial jobs to buy healthful food would be “socialism” and we certainly don’t want that, do we?

  • Thanks for the video. It would be great if you could have a second one showing a table with product recommendations (in favor and against) considering the aspects you mentioned here. Cheers.

  • Hey, it’s not true the ezekezel bread has the organic sprouted soyabean and wheat fresh yeast…. this makes this bread gluten bread

  • lololol i love watching these videos who read these ingredients who do not have any idea what they are (or even how to say them) and just assume they are bad because they do not understand hahahahahaha

    dude ur an idiot.

  • I’ve never thought of Ezekiel Bread as Christian bread though. You said it’s the only product marketed towards Christians, that is news to me. It has a bible verse on it, doesn’t mean it’s marketed for Christians


  • Gave Thumbs up. I rarely do that. Gotta mention that as a person that doesn’t get high. It was both interesting and annoying to see a presentation given in such manner. Addition of my own accord. God Instructed Zeck to eat the bread with over a half liter of water per serving. Try any of them and you’ll see why.

  • Your interpretation of these studies is wrong. It’s taking actual data (100% of water consumers die) and making a wrong conclusion (water is bad for you). That’s a very well known fallacy.

  • Thank you again for another informative video. Would appreciate your opine on Schär Artisan Baker Multigrain Bread. I have to eat gluten free bread.

  • It’s not gonna kill you folks, oh but it’s chemical, so what? unless you over-eat anything you eat, if you do, even organic food can kill you too!

  • Matthew 11.28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

    Jesus Christ loves you. Repent and be saved. Only Jesus Christ saves. God bless you, and the grace of God be upon you and your family in the name of Jesus Christ.

  • on a second note just deliver the message without all of the “cool” body movements and talk…didn’t finish this video cause you’re a bit annoying…

  • You’re an idiot. Not because of what you said about the bread but because of the way you opened up your video. I’ve been in public speaking for decades. You don’t start telling people what you want to say the way you did.

  • Yeah, disclaimer*. You aren’t going to make flour anything close to commercially processed stuff, milled with commercial grain Mills that have some real horsepower THEN sifted to the finest powder, with chunky bits sold as animal feeds. Generally, consistency of home ground flours will be sand.

  • There is actually a list somewhere on the internet that shows all the alternative names of sugar (the bad stuff) and agave was amongst those names. I was shocked, since I used it so much in the past, now I stick to stevia.

  • I have not met a bread that liked me, Lets get real. Diabetics should NEVER eat bread….If it has a carb, it is bad. Ask yourself this, “Is this slice of bread worth a foot?”

  • I also fell into bolthouse farms dressing trap. Had no idea about carrageenan. Thank you for helping me build understanding on food ingredients that are inflammatory!

  • a non gmo Erythritol is a health promoting antioxidant sweetener. Why did you leave out Erythritol? It is much better than Dolcedi.

  • I doubt there is a soybean oil that is not from gmo soybeans as almost all soybeans in North America are bred to tolerate herbicides.

  • no such thing as organic food or anything organic air is your biggest growth simulator the air is full of everything bad!!

  • i been eating Ezekial bread for a long time i been working out over a year now and i am in good shape my nutrition is on point too much of everything is bad its all about balance keep track of your calories and youl be good but u sitting bashing Ezekial bread thats not true just because it didn’t worked for u it dont mean other people cant eat it and THATS FACTS BOY learn it learn it… lol
