People lost 4 lbs in 3 months eating the low carb bread. People over 55 lost 5 lbs.

> The rye bread was made from type 997 flour, the low-insulin-stimulating bread consisted of oat flakes, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, psyllium husks, chopped almonds, baker’s honey, and Rhinish field beans

There's a lot of fiber in that bread. I wonder if the people who lost weight simply didn't absorb the same amount of calories as the people who were eating normal bread, because normal bread is easier to digest.

I'd suggest it was that the low carb bread was about 1/10 the carbs of the regular bread. And the amount of fat was much higher in the low carb bread.

We know sunflowers are inspirational plants, even to famous painters. Vincent Van Gogh loved sunflowers so much, he created a famous series of paintings, simply called ‘sunflowers’.

Interesting, because the group getting the low-insulin stimulating bread lost weight, even though the two breads were similar in calories.
