I'm back NiceHat. btw, bearly's post in the thread is spot-on: she says "too extreme." You doubtless know that the "low/no carb diets trade on forcing the bod into an abnormal condition: ketosis, which as I understand it is the final stage as one approaches starvation. It's seems such a brutal thing to intentionally administer to oneself. Dr. T. Colin Campbell is Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell. During his career there he stumbled on an opportunity to conduct a landmark nutrition study using data amassed years ago in China. The result; his magnum opus "The China Study," which the N.Y. Times characterized as "the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted. If you've not read it I commend it to you highly. I suspect other "Connect" members are familiar with it and may chime in here.
