      during the first week when i went significantly low carb some couple of months ago i thought i would die: terrible headache, muscle pain, nausea... but then i somehow adapted;

      for a starter, beginning from today, i plan to subject myself to 5-day no carb test (no plants whatsoever; but i guess i would have some carbs from green tea and spices);</blockquote>


      Sounds like you may have been potassium deficient.

        all right, i quitted after two days, because after reading some stuff here and there, i somehow got an idea that if i continued no-carbing for a long period i could become carb intolerant, so i would have no choice but to give up carbs for good, which is what i have no intention to do

        besides, i didn&#39;t feel... &#39;normal&#39;: body felt hot, hands trembling, restlessness... and a simple fear something could go awry; so, my today&#39;s breakfast was a sweet potato and dried figs... overall, i quite feel miserable having succumbed to carbs...

            I&#39;ve gone a week max on no-carb (if it means below 5g/day)


            No side-effects besides keto smell personally. I think I can stay longer but raspberries and broccoli are a weakness.

              The more I think about it I like the idea of seasonal eating. Eating more carbs during summer when they would be available.

                sue what do you think about the idea of it making you more carb intolerant?

                    Don&#39;t sweat it - you&#39;ll be just fine without extra carbs (i.e. eating foods that are primarily carb-based).


                    Up your fat intake to stave off hunger pains, and ease into it, sure... but you&#39;ll be just fine. And, many problems (like cravings) go away pretty soon.


                    And no, I&#39;ve never heard of "carb intolerance" - but if you have troubles eating grains or such again, that&#39;s good! It&#39;s your body&#39;s way of telling you that stuff&#39;s no good for you, right?

                      I&#39;m wondering about the "rebound" effects of adding carbs after a "no-carb" adventure? Is it possible to survive without grains and starches? This is a serious question. I have been a pescetarian for awhile but I don&#39;t know if giving up grains and starches is the best way to go.

                        Sorry, my question is: Is it sustainable?

                          No-carb is indefinitely sustainable.


                          And it can be done strictly on muscle meats. See the link I gave earlier.

                            Maurille, can you point out the part of the article which suggests that men can survive on only muscle meats?


                            As far as I&#39;m concerned some organ meats and bone marrow would be essential as well.

                              Oops. SerialSinner, no I can&#39;t. Looks like I remembered wrong. Sorry.


                              In the experiment I was thinking of, they ate "steaks, chops, brains fried in bacon fat, boiled short-ribs, chicken, fish, liver and bacon." (Not necessarily an exclusive list -- just examples.) (That&#39;s from Section II of Part 2.)

                                I am still reading it and I think its a great article, thanks for posting it. Sometimes its hard to adventure outside of what conventional wisdom dictates, but in this case, everything makes so much sense that I am almost angry it took me so long to realize it. I think Mark deserves credit in this regard. If it wasn&#39;t for him, I might still be eating whole grains and lot&#39;s of omega 6
