Combine warm water and yeast. After yeast dissolves (3 to 5 minutes), beat in 2 cups gluten flour. Let mixture rise in a warm place until light and foamy (about 60-90 minutes).
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, olive oil, salt, and sugar substitute. Beat in about 2 cups gluten flour. Use ONLY enough flour to make a dough that will knead well. Mix in yeast/flour mixture.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Knead bread for approximately 10 minutes (because of the gluten, it will become difficult to knead in about half that time). Let rise until doubled (about 1 hour) in bulk. Shape into 2 loaves. Place in loaf pan or on baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F oven about 1 hour.
NOTE: Check your bread machine manual for instructions on making this bread by machine.

The ratio of water to flour needs to be corrected. There's no way 3 cups of water to 4 cups of flour will make a kneadable dough.

I tried this recepie and I must have done something terribly wrong. My two loaves ended up looking like medium size turkeys. Cut open they looked ok I guess but tearing the inside from the crust and tasting it, it tasted soggy and had the chewyness of rubber. Can anyone tell me where I may have hone wrong? I'm 6'1 and 315 lbs and really would like to eat a low carb bread. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Ok, tried this recipe, pretty much following very closely. Bread turned out nice and brown but inside was soggy. What happened! Anyone have any thoughts on why it would be overly moist?
