When I came across the Everything Bagel from The Great Low Carb Bread Company, I decided to give them a try. I wanted to test the quality, how fast they would ship and how fresh they would be when they arrived, and most importantly – whether they would stall my weight loss on a low carb diet. (They did NOT stall me! Yay!)
These bagels are only 2 Net Carbs each.
I’ve been through my share of low carb breads over the years. Julian Bakery, for example, that was definitely a “one and done” experience. Ugh! 😛
There were quite a few people discussing these bagels from The Great Low Carb Bread Company in my Low Carb Challenge group, so I decided to “take one for the team” (assuming they would stall me, AND paying the very high shipping cost) and try them out. I’ve already mentioned they didn’t stall me – and I ate all 6 in six days. 😀
As for the high shipping, that was because I ordered the bagels from Amazon. I’ve since found MUCH cheaper shipping 😉 so keep reading…
Not only can you get them cheaper at Netrition, but they have tons of flavors to choose from! I love the Everything Bagel, but I want to try the Cinnamon Bagel. 😀
The great thing about Netrition is that no matter how much you order, there is only one low flat rate shipping fee ($4.95). At Amazon, the current shipping price is $9.24 per package (more than the bagels themselves!).
You definitely save a lot when you order them from Netrition, especially if you get several flavors or stock up & freeze them. Or if you order other products while you’re there, like:
Speaking of, when I ordered the bagels from Amazon… they came fresh, shipped super fast, and were shipped as “perishable” – which explains the higher shipping rate.
Netrition freezes them, and ships them frozen. I just ordered some so I’ll be interested to see if they taste as fresh as those from Amazon.
The bag DOES say “keep frozen”. I kept mine out on the counter though, and they stayed fresh the whole week. I just kept the bag sealed. So I don’t plan on freezing mine once they arrive. I plan on EATING them. 😉
Low Carb Breads are not for everyone. They have a great texture, they taste fabulous, and they did not stall my weight loss – but they may not be for you if you have certain sensitivities or health issues. And of course you’ll have to do a “clean test” to make sure they don’t stall your weight loss (clean meaning: don’t change anything else, and keep your macros consistent otherwise).
Here’s the label so you can see the ingredients:
I LOVE them. They didn’t kick me out of ketosis, or slow down my weight loss at all. I read similar reviews from others as well. See the Reviews on Amazon to get a feel for what other people thought. But then order them from Netrition instead. 😉
They’re only 2 net carbs each, too!
They are absolutely delicious lathered in real butter, or smeared with Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Wedges, or even as a sandwich! I’m just glad I found a cheaper way to order them, especially since I already order so much from Netrition anyway.
No more ridiculous shipping rates!!

p.s. Have you tried these, or do you plan to? I’d love to hear YOUR thoughts!
p.p.s. I *did* pay $3.99 extra for thermal packaging / cold packs, but I did *not* pay for faster shipping – as Netrition orders always arrive super fast anyway. 😉 In the future I may skip the thermal packaging too, since I got them shipped fresh last time as I mentioned. I aim to test it both ways, but wanted to try them “frozen” first.
