So many? Like one? Far and few between, and usually people with low post counts (trolls?) or people new at this whose bodies haven't adjusted. Your straw man is on fire, me thinks.Eek, no wonder so many people have cold hands and feet, thinning hair and body temps in the 96's around here.
Or, backwards. You can get by perfectly well with 0 carbs for a very long time, but not without fat if you are eating enough meat.Everyone needs carbs for metabolic reasons; the body runs on glucose, not fat.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
I readily admit I have cold hands and feet... they have been that way as long as I can remember. Since at least middle school. And have been that way regardless of diet or level of carb intake.
I also have low blood pressure, and have had this my whole life.
I do not however experience, nor have I ever, any of the other "side effects" of HFLC that always get tossed out as "guaranteed".
And that includes getting my blood tested for some of those markers that get tossed around. Never low.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Socio-anthropology is useless, it's a strawman based on historical inaccuracies and things you cannot prove. Throw the inuit in a tropical climate and I guarantee they wouldn't be craving polar bear and trying to get the majority of their calories from meat and fat. They also wouldn't look so torn up and haggard and probably feel much better too.
You need more glucose, you're not thinking clearly.

Whether or not you need something to survive doesn't dictate importance. Your body operates best when you eat both fat and carbohydrate. But your body needs glucose much more than fat. Funny thing is, the fat your body synthesizes from glucose is "cleaner" than the fats we ingest.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
Roots are fine but grains and fruit is nutritionally poor compared to veg and not a good choice in huge amounts due to the higher glucose and fructose content.
I am not going to speak for those who want to go into ketosis, that is their choice.
although the brain needs some glucose fat is a much more important for brain health
Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
